Ok, ok, I know. It's not real attractive. It would definitely be better if I could have found a NEW tube sock but I grabbed what I could find on my way out the door (and it IS clean). I may have mentioned that my office is built on a slab and my feet get cold to the point of having my toes go numb. I must have poor circulation because no one else seems to be complaining. Anyhow, I read online that you can make footwarmers with whole rice and a tube sock. Just fill up the sock with rice, tie the end, and pop it in the microwave for a minute. You can't believe how well this works. I did it and the thing stays toasty warm for over an hour. I feel like my feet are resting on hot sand at the beach. It's wonderful! So have one ready for when you come in from shoveling this evening folks!
tip: if you have a plastic cup, cut the bottom out of it and place the cup IN the neck of the sock. That way the rice pours in very easily. And, yes, I came up with that myself thank you very much. :-)
