5 Things Friday – 3/23/18

Welcome back to 5 Things Friday 3/23/18! I hope you all had a great week! Please comment with one of your favorite things that happened this week, or something that you are thankful for. 🙂 Every Friday I aim to post about 5 of my favorite things that week. I will try to post one thing for each of these categories: Homestead Garden, Homestead Critters, Homestead Kitchen, Homesteader Entertainment and Personal a thing from my Homesteader life. These may be handy gadgets, recipe’s, quotes or moments in time. I hope you will all share some of your Friday Favorites with me as well! Homestead Gardening Favorite: This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite gardening thing was this new pair of Ariat work boots that I bought myself. I have been dealing with extremely bad plantar fasciitis in both feet for the last 4-5 years. It got so bad this last fall, I ended up having surgery on my right foot. I was off my feet for a month before surgery and then slowly worked my way back up to being back on my feet. Since I’ve been working in the garden, I noticed that my tendons, ligaments, muscles, what have you are still weak, and I have almost turned my ankle easily over a dozen times in the last 2 months working outside. So I decided I needed some ankle support instead of wearing my Crocs or Oofos slip ons out in the garden. These boots are a dream! So comfy! And cute to boot! Ha! So cute in fact, my FFA daughter decided she needed a pair too! So now we are twinning! If you need a good pair of garden or homestead work boots, you should check them out.
