In my posting on June 13 I told about the Ristomatti Ratia boots I wanted to have. I was so excited that I wanted to order the Red Dahlia boots right the way. I’m glad I went back to the site and checked the wide of the shaft. The Red Dahlias were not wide enough. The short-shafted Ratia boots also looked nice but were not exactly what I had in mind. Next time we went to Myyrmanni shopping mall I tried on the Nokian Piha (Piha means garden) boots. Yes, now I found the right kind of boots for me. Only problem there were no in my size. I went to all the shops there but nope, they were either in one size larger or one size smaller. Today we went to Sello shopping mall. Yay, Piha in my size and on sale. A week ago they were 52 € now 40 €. Just let it rain. My feats do net get soaking wet 🙂
This was supposed to be a selfie (a usfie). We both dressed in raincoats 🙂 I’d need longer arms to shoot good selfies. As, always, I look awful in pics so I cut me away from it.
Oops, it happened again 😦 Wrong year on the pic. Should read 2014.
After the good start of the summer with sunshine and southern heat, temperature about 30 degrees Celsius, it now looks like it will be an average Finnish summer. Meaning mostly rain and about 15-20 C. Yesterday it rained all day. My feet were soaking wet after having been out walking Canelo. If he had not had to get out we would have stayed inside all day. Both my jogging shoes and my rubber boots have big holes in them. Well I don’t jog anymore but like to walk in comfy type of jogging shoes. The shoes I’ll buy after midsummer when there are summer sales. Boots, I need as soon as possible. Yesterday I surfed online for boots. I found some designed by Ristomatti Ratia. Now I can’t make up my mind which. There are birch tree leaf boots in black and green or in black and purple or dahlia in red or black. I asked Leif. He said birch in purple. Myself seriously thinking of the black and green or the red dahlia.
Now I think the red Dahlia 😉
