So, I'm still recovering from the tree planting.  I'm doing lots of sleeping and I'm trying to be gentle on my revved up metabolism (aka, replace bucket loads of cake with bucket loads of carrots).  The bug bites are healing, my sleeping bag has dried out, and I've almost washed that funky smell out of my rain jacket.

The only things that are a bit slow to recover are my feet.  They look disgusting.  I thought about taking a photo to show you, but then I got worried that you might puke.  I decided to draw a picture instead (in paint.  It was fun). 
Now, before you get all shocked and decide never to walk again so you can avoid a similar fate, remember that these feet were earned after planting 9 hours a day in rubber boots.

They are a bit delicate right now.

Which gave me the perfect excuse to rush out and buy new, good for the feet, shoes.   They have all of the "padding" and "support structures" I need to go back to my ever walking ways.   They cost me a whopping $60  (that's 600 trees!).  But they're really comfortable...

Anyways, I can't afford a pedicure, but I'm thinking that I'll try to do one myself.  After all, my feet are very important!  They get me from A to B!   They support my whole body!  They want to look sexy again in a pair of sandals!

So I typed "pedicure" into Google and found this website:

It looks pretty informative.  I'll try and do it tonight and then let you know how it goes. 

Although a pedicure does seem like a lot of work... maybe I'll just moisturize the heck out of my feet and sleep in a pair of socks.  That's kind of the same right?
