New Layout, new boots and TGIF

We're enjoying our Friday. TGIF.

Simply put, I hate my new boots. Maybe hate is a harsh word because I don't usually say it and yet when I do, I usually reserve it for the latest 80's song I've heard on the radio, or asking myself how many times Pitbull tells me I should know he wants me. My other coworker has them and though I know she got blisters countless times, I thought that I could pass this unfortunate rubbing by wearing two pairs of socks. Now given, I always wear two pairs of socks, even on the hottest days of the year. It keeps my feet nice and cool.
Side note here: if you work outside or in any kind of heat, wool socks over sweat socks is the way to go. Sweat socks absorb the sweat and the wool pull that sweat away from your feet, keeping you cooler. In all my years (since I was 16, I'm 29 now), I've never once had a foot problem, nor do my feet EVER stink (nor my footwear either). Try it. It's a beautiful thing.

Carrying on, these new boots rub the top of my foot and it rubs the back of my heel, wearing down my sock in almost one week. I think Im going to end up taking them backand you may see a new website thinger up above, replaced.

Originally I tried hydrangeas (City Line Venice) in my picture but it looked funny. I tried our spot, the duck pond and it looked busy. This one also looks awful but I dont' have another picture, that or I'm too lazy to go and find one. Either way, I don't particularly like my layout or the pictures or the colours but Im making due with what I have at the moment until I do something better.

Right now I'mtrying to write something up for a grant and its going very slowly, if not happening at all.

I hate breaking in new footwear! When you are on your feet all day, footwear is important, and it becomes an issue if your shoes/boots are rubbing. My husband bought me a pair of Sorrels for Christmas, and they give me blisters. I didn't know that I could take them back after wearing them. Or do you think two pairs of socks would work?

deborah - it's looking like I'm going to end up taking these babies back because honestly, they're already falling apart in the greenhouse and its terrible. Mark's Workwarehouse takes back boots if they don't fit to your comfort or they fall apart very quickly, which I like because if im dropping two hundred bucks on boots, they damn well better hold up to the elements!

Joy - hah! Yeah? I don't know how well it handles on old browers and I'm curious about it. Oh MASSIVE PLANS for Halloween this year, if I can get ahead and such. I need to go up North and look for a few things. I can't wait to see what you do!

wicked - yes, well you're name says it all, doesn't it? hahaha! Clearly thats a sign right there of awesome.
