Barefoot therapy

Dirty feet

When life gets tough...I take off my shoes. The weather gods very kindly sent a Tuesday with high around 70, which meant bare feet and short sleeves were a perfect fit for the garden. After a couple of hours of sun and mud and frog calls, I was feeling astonishingly better.

I'm so glad you're getting the therapy that works best for you Anna. We lost our bottle calf in December and it was so hard. I cried for over an hour straight, and we had only had him for 3 months.
