Cold toes... Warm sand...

When I was little I absolutely hated wearing socks. I despised them. My feet were always getting hot. Mom made me wear the kind with lace on the top, and even though I did think it was pretty it itched something awful. I would have gone bare foot all the time if she had let me. So when summer came and I wasn't forced to wear socks and shoes I was delighted. My feet got though each year and I could walk and run and hop and skip over our gravel and not even feel it. But the best time to go bare foot though was at the beach. There's nothing quite like the feeling of warm sand between your toes. Or cold sand (gotta love Oregon).

Right now though, i'm very glad of my socks. They keep my toes from completely freezing off. I have come to see their virtues (although I can't say I care about them enough to keep them matched up very well). Oh well, a girls gotta make a fashion statement somehow, and I do think my blue sock and my yellow sock say quite a bit...

Here's a photo of one of my favorite places! (Taken in June) Makes me miss summertime... 

I for one am looking forward to some nice warm sand this summer.

Keep your toes warm,
