I swear, not a soul knows how to get the best presents quite like our Grandma. She is just a single one of those people who knows just what to get, even when you don’t know what you want. She knows that I struggle with cold feet. I’m alright dealing with Winter time & at my dwelling I’ll bundle up in a sweater & a blanket rather than turning up the oil heating appliance! However, my toes are sort of lengthy, so even in fuzzy socks & slippers they get so frosty it hurts. If I don’t have the oil furnace running high enough, it becomes painful with the cold in my feet… Then the only way to find any sort of relief is to take a bath to get them under boiling water for a short while. However, since my water gas heater is also powered by the oil heating appliance, rather than an electric water heater, this too wastes fuel that I certainly can’t afford to replace. Then on Christmas Day I opened up my present from Grams to find the perfect solution–an electric footwarmer! It’s basically like an electric blanket, however instead of just being a cover it makes a little pocket of heat to stick your feet in. I can take it with me basically everywhere in the dwelling, from the couch to the office, & even into bed with me. The electric foot warmer particularly heats my feet up so they’re entirely comfy–no more pain–and all without turning up the oil heating appliance. Plus since the electric footwarmer is absolutely low wattage, it doesn’t run up the electric bill like a space furnace would.
