cold feet

It is cold outside and there is snow on the ground and I have cold feet just looking at this image. What sorts of remedies cure your cold feet? Dancing, warm socks, hot baths?
Snow day here today. Off to assist in shoveling the driveway with cold feet but warm heart!

Warm socks. While I am out shoveling, I put my comfy clothes (socks included) in the dryer. They are warm and ready when I am.

Hot chocolate!!

How about a nice foot massage after you help with the driveway? That would be a great reward!

My wet boots go right on the vent by the front door when I come in. Then the next time I'm ready to venture out, they are all dry and toasty.
Best,
Susan

Warm socks for sure. Shhh... we have been lucky some snow, but not compared to you. Enjoy your snow day! xo

I'm a warm sock girl. Enjoy the snow day!

My dog sprawled out over my feet always helps tremendously. She's a little hot cake! Stay warm Patricia.:) We have snow here as well!

What a wonderful, magical photo!

I have a pair of Wellington boots that are leather lined, they are the warmest, driest footwear ever. The snow may be just to the top of them today but my feet remained dry and warm as I shoveled, filled the birdfeeders and showered the snow on myself shaking off the evergreens.

Dancing in these boots is highly recommended.

Enjoy your snow day!

I invested in some sheepskin slippers for inside and some sheepskin lined boots for outside. This has made the world of difference during cold snaps.

how pretty... I always tuck my feet under my husband - he is an angel and even lifts up so I can get then in there better.

Happy Snow Day!

Cashmere socks, especially for sleeping. Life can't be all cashmere, but your socks? Definitely. I like these best.

JMW said...

I love my fuzzy socks from Life is Good. They are the best! Stay warm!

You are getting pummeled and still -it seems to have missed us yet again. We got about 1 inch - a pretty dusting. Nothing like curling up with a soft throw and watching a movie with a cup of tea in my book.

Brrrr....is right. Shoveled the front walk, then joined a neighbor for morning coffee. My feet were freezing on the way home. But nestled inside in my socks....my toes are warm again. I think just little breaks indoors is the cure.

Enjoy the day!

Just back inside after 2 hours of shoveling through all that snow! Well, just like you I guess, unless you send the boys...
Isn't this a lovely image? I thought of your daughter...
But I try to keep warm feet with woolen socks and a crackling fireplace!
And toe warmer are my last resort!

for cosy toes, I'd recommend thick cashmere socks after a long soak in a bath. Alternatively dancing around the house works wonders too!

PVE,

Warm socks, fleece blanket, hot green tea (decaf) and fresh cold orange slices. Perfect to weather any storm!

What a great shot!! Today reminds me of when I was a kid with snowdrifts that went above my head. My mother was a champion igloo maker - it was fabulous!! As for feet - socks + slippers do me fine.

Susan Seale said...

thick fleecy socks with REAL slippers instead of ballet slippers:)

Laura said...

But what an amazing shot! It must be worth the cold feet. Than again, easy for me to say sitting in fromt of the heater ;-)

Believe it or not, I am wearing socks now even down here in South FL. It's supposed to drop down into the 30's here tonight. Keep those tootsies warm, PVE! xx

My Notting Hill said...

Thick loose socks. As Stefan said - we only got a dusting. Still waiting for our fun snowstorm to come along!

Southern Lady said...

Warm, fuzzy socks do the trick for me. Carla

Marnie said...

Hey, thank you for visiting our blog, and for your kind words! Sisters are the best :) your artwork and blog are beautiful, we will have to keep following!

such a pretty photograph! I always get a little sad looking at ballerinas. My daughter was in a preprofessional company and quit cold turkey. it killed Ben and me. killed us. but of course we could never tell her that.

we worry more about keeping our feet cool than warm here in texas.

Rene said...

It is so cold here that even in sub-zero snow boots, my feet were a tad cold yesterday. Maybe I should try toe-shoes.
