Going Barefoot In The Winter

January 14, 2013

Picture of bare feet.Is not too smart. If you have any choice anyway.

I made that mistake this morning. My hubby says it is below freezing. I can tell you the ground is cold!

I went out there with no shoes because he was feeding the dogs and one of them was trying to steal the food from the other one. I think she must be stealing from other dogs around here too…she is getting fat.

Anyway I went out to pull her away from the food. I didn’t have be out there very long but in that short time my feet got really cold. It actually hurt.

I haven’t been outside without shoes on in so long it is hard to remember when that was. Kids used to run around barefoot all summer when I was little. Not in the winter though.

And now I’m really SURE those tales about walking a mile to school barefoot in the snow uphill both ways were just to make us feel spoiled.

I really feel sorry for any homeless folks out there right now. Especially the ones with no shoes. And those in the north must really be hurting. If it that bad down here in the south the cold up there really bites.

Those of you who can…keep your shoes on! And stay warm.
