I have Ewok feet

Ewok feet
It is Winter.
I live in an almost-100-year-old house.
I live in Oregon.
It is cold here.
My floors are cold.
Except for the bathroom floor with the extravagant radiant floor heat.
I work at home.
I shuffle around a lot.
My partner does the day-after-Thanksgiving sales.
At Fred Meyer.
I do not.
Anymore.
Though early on in our relationship, you could find me wandering the aisles of Fred Meyer at 5:30 am the day after Thanksgiving.
I don't do that anymore.
But someone else does.
And for that I am grateful.
Because I now have a year's worth of socks.
A new pillow.
She has some new tools.
And I have feet that look like Ewoks.
But they are so toasty
Warm
Fuzzy
Comfortable
Ewok-like.
Happy ho ho holidays people.
Ewok feet and all.

My feet are always cold - even in Southern New Mexico. I "almost" bought some Ugg knockoffs (even though they are out of style) since they look so very toasty and warm!

Do you wear those out in public?! You could, in Portland, you know. Hugs.

I am insanely jealous of your Ewok feet!! I forced myself to go to FM for socks this year, first time in 4 yrs, and I intended to get some slippers but couldn't tolerate the mean shoppers so I got my socks and board games and left. Back in bed by 5:45am! No Ewok slippers. :(
