Why are feet so fetching?

I mean it. I have this thing for feet.

Back of the ankles and toes especially.

Trying my hand at yoga again, I’m reminded that feet are so neglected. (Ya think? High heels!) Except for the occasional pedicure, we rarely play with our toes, just letting them wiggle and our feet flex.

Good news? Once we start pampering them a little, they start to forgive us. AND guess what? They love being up in the air. Higher than our heads. (Think babies grabbing their toes and sticking them in their mouths!)

Okay, maybe we don’t want to go THAT far, but tell me…why are you still sitting there with your feet under your desk? Get off that chair, onto the floor, feet in the air…now wiggle those toes!

At the end of the day, what other parts of our bodies are we taking for granted?

Leave it to a Master Woofer to remind me that my dogs are barkin'! I haven't let my poor overworked feet hang out above my head for years. Now that you've reminded me, they're just itching to wriggle freely, straight up and proudly held high.
I do know that this is a great refresher, too. It gets the blood circulating back to your head and helps your brain to start making all sorts of smart synapses. You're so right; our feet are definitely fetching--especially when we're looking up at them!

Eileen, you're great! Love your comment!! Mind if I borrow your idea ("my dogs barkin') on the Woofer blog? I'll let you know when I do, and of course, give you credit!

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits.

I have a thing for feet too-female feet that is! I even have a blog about it at if you want to check it out. There's so much I would love to do with a cute pair of female feet. I love when hot girls bare their soles and wiggle theiir toes!
