My Spring T0-Do List for my Roma Boots
Sometimes you need a little motivation before tackling a big to-do list. My newest motivation is a pair of Roma’s Classic Chelsea Rain Boots. The best thing about Roma boots – for each pair purchased, Roma gives a pair to a child in need and donates 10% of the proceeds to educational initiatives.
I’ll be honest. I’ve never owned a pair of rain boots and never intended to. Yet, when I saw the design for the classic rain boot, I knew that these were perfect garden/trail-blazing shoes. Here’s why: they are lightweight, water-proof, well constructed, easy to slip on, and sturdy enough to wear in the woods. I’ll also allow myself to believe, at least, that they are snake-bite proof.
As I wait patiently for what I hope is the last cold burst in Georgia and longingly stare at my new boots, my to-do list continues to grow. I’m itching to spend my days outside absorbing Vitamin D, and I’m dreaming of moving the plants around in my garden for the millionth time because, maybe this time, I’ll find just the right balance. Even better, spending time outdoors is great for the mind, and the physical labor is a great workout. Let’s see how much I can tackle this Spring:
- Clean out fish pond that has over-grown plants and is filled with leaves.
- Re-establish trail system through my woods, which hasn’t been maintained for ~5 years.
- Move around and/or share with friends a slew of plants. And I won’t lie, new plants will probably be purchased and planted.
- Re-mulch garden beds.
- Try to stay on top of weeds – ha!
- Dig up rocks from woods for landscaping.
I hope this list doesn’t get any longer before the last frost has passed. I’ve certainly been known for biting off more than I can chew. Nevertheless, I look forward to doing so while wearing my Roma boots.
