We’ve finally had snow. And I’ve finally been cross-country skiing. One afternoon last week Hubby and I skied across the golf course near our house, bushwhacked a short way through the woods, and onto an old farm track that a local farmer grooms for his horse and sleigh. The conditions were perfect: sunny, -5°C, with gorgeous snow. Winter can be wonderful.
Then, with thoughts of snow on my mind, I came home and dug these Stuart Weitzman leather and suede boots out of my closet. I haven’t worn high boots yet this winter. And these boots were meant for wading. Wading snow, that is. And I love them.

|Raining and warm. And getting greener, unfortunately.|
|My Hunter fishing boots.|
Still. Maybe with my Gortex jacket? I can pretend that I’ve just stopped off to pick up a few things on my way home from the stables? Or that I left my fishing rod and tackle in the car? They do look kind of cool. Could it be that these boots were meant for shopping, as well as walking and wading?
|Ready for errand running, Hunter boots and all.|
I love that old song. Reminds me of when I was teaching, and the Christmas Assembly at my school in 1998. Dressed in our high black boots and mini-skirts, with our hair back-combed to within an inch of its life, four of us teachers performed this song. Of course, I use the word “performed” loosely, we lip-synced, and danced… and the kids in the audience went nuts! They love it when their teachers make fools of themselves. And, well, we love it too. Still makes me smile thinking of that. And…and… I have the video. One of the teachers filmed the whole thing. Now that is a video that will never see the light of day except in my own living room!
So, I’m off, now, to pick up a few groceries. Wearing my Hunter boots and my Gortex jacket. Hubby and I are making a big batch of chili today. Going into production mode as it were. We always make tons, enough to freeze several meals.
And speaking of freezing. Despite the fact that it’s +3°C right now, the temperature is dropping to -15° overnight. And I won’t be wearing these Hunter boots tomorrow. It will be a skating rink out there.
Good thing I had my skates sharpened last week.
How about you? What’s your take on these boots… or others… or just boots in general?
