I went sledding on Saturday for the first time in years. It was a good time, but required more preparation than I expected, not the least of which was buying new boots. All of the winter boots that I have bought in the past few years are dressy leather with heels. Not sledding boots. So for the adventure, I had to buy some good, warm, stomping around boots.
I love my new boots. They keep my feet warm, and make me feel like I am no longer a prisoner to the weather. I can go out again. Yay for new boots.
In the grand scheme of things, boots are not going to solve homelessness or climate change or the current financial crisis, but they are a little thing that has made me happy this week. What little things have made you happy recently?
