Lovely magpie post - doesn't this weeks prompt make you feel so relaxed?
Oh yes! A warm bath with painted toes is so necessary for those all too overwhelming days. A comforting post.
and my bunions have blisters and my brain feels scorchedLike the rythm of this somewhat painful description! lol :)
My sentiments, exactly. I adore the notion of life coming at you like June bugs. Wonderful bit of writing, here, Carrie.
amazing!love the sentiments.
Wow! Did you ever strike a chord in me ~ had both feet operated on years ago for bunion repair. I could spend weeks talking about the various blisters, what they were filled with, the pins in my feet for three weeks post surgery .... and my feet today - over 20 years later!
Superbly and succinctly stated! Short and sweet, tis all 'bout the feet!
Yes indeedy... perfect!
Madamebutterfly I agree...it is a very relaxing idea. :-)Thank you Angie and Jinksy for stopping by. :-)Willow thank you for following me here....june bugs on my porch usually make me do a little bit of a frantic dance trying to get in the house before they get in my hair...lolJingle,Dana, and Christine I am glad you liked it...:-)Helen, you will have to fill me in on how your feet are doing now...i have bunions on both feet, and one is gigantic...:-)
Great way to soothe those aching feet!
You are right about that Martin...:-)
ah the magic in hot water and new toe nail polish!
Hi Kathew i feel the same way....:-)
Love your poem and the Emily Dickinson quote, used it not long ago in an essay about hope. We too often use our feet like tools and then pay for it later. But the warm bath you speak of is a wonderful solution.Elizabeth
