Examine Your Sole
Today’s healthy countdown tidbit is caring for your poor aching feet. I bet you’ve been running around trying to get your Christmas preparations done and your feet hurt.
Better Homes and Gardens suggests the following. Sit down and wrap a towel around one foot. Grasping both towel ends, pull your toes towards you and hold for about 15 seconds before releasing. Then switch to do this with your other foot. Continue until you feel better.
This morning I’m taking care of my feet by trying a new herbal recipe I found—Peppermint Foot Soak.
You can find the recipe here.
While I’m pampering my feet this morning, I’ll use the time to address our Christmas cards for going out in today’s mail.
The 15th of December is my traditional date each year for doing this. This year we are using a photo my husband took of snowy woods in Hemau, Germany for our card. Inside I’ve printed Robert Frost’s poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.
Tonight I’m hosting a little Christmas Crafting Night for a few friends. It will be so much fun sharing what project each person is making and just taking time to relax for an evening. I wish you could join us.
