I’m not sure whether crossing your own threshold counts, but this is MisterMac crossing our threshold in the small hours of this morning, which makes him the “first foot” (‘Eng. regional (north.), Sc., and Irish English (north.) The first person to cross a householder’s threshold in the New Year’, OED). I’ve added some other feet taken this morning to make a very boring picture marginally more interesting. And how I would love a pair of those white furry yeti boots, although heaven knows how you keep them clean.

Day #1 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
