Cold Hands, Warm….Feet
As she recuperates, the Farmer has begun to climb the walls, even though she’s not supposed to strain herself! And I continue to put in two hours of outside work in the morning, and another hour at dusk, with lots of aching and moaning and not much writing in between. At least if I post to this blog, I’m writing.
To avoid whining about the hard work, I’m going to instead focus on absolutely one of the best parts of being Head Farmer here on Rising Moon Farm.
My boots get to sit on the boot dryer! (Those are Melissa’s on the floor…mine are on the dryer, being heated!)
If you’ve never heard of a boot dryer, it’s a clever little bit of plastic that gently heats the insides of your boots. I must say, there’s nothing like warm toasty footwear to improve your attitude toward going outside when it’s 8 degrees above zero. Every farm needs a boot dryer.
I LOVE having warm boots. But here’s the exciting part: it’s not just for boots. Today I actually bent down and read the label: PEET Shoe Dryer.
Yes, you too could be the happy owner/user of what I’d thought was just for boots. Just imagine going out on a chilly night and slipping on a warm pair of sneakers. Chilly is, of course, relative….My sister in Jacksonville shivers violently when the temperature drops to 75 F. !
Here’s the form that holds the boots.
And if you want warm hands in addition to warm feet, there’s even a clever glove form as well. Although I can’t recommend leaving this on the boot dryer. It’s kind of creepy to walk by and see that plastic hand waving at you.
The gizmo is limited to two items, so you can warm two boots or two gloves or one boot and one glove (why?)
Every woman needs a shoe/boot dryer. Yeah, it’s made out of plastic, and it uses a tiny bit of electricity, but if you’re facing a daunting task, I’ve learned you’ll always succeed if your feet are warm…
