All is well and I *will* wear the pants!

fresnelWatch me!

Actually I hardly ever wear pants any more. I have a couple pairs of leggings, just the cheap cotton/spandex kind that I use as a layer in the winter. And a pair of snowpants for when it gets reeeeeaaaalllly cold. And even then, if I am Urban Hiking, sometimes a long wool skirt is my choice of outer layer.

Other than that? Skirts skirts skirts. Short, knee-length, mid-calf, and long. Elastic waist all. I couldn’t be bothered with anything else. Comfort is the word and I feel comfortable in skirts. I even wear them hiking, at least the short varieties. I will do urban hiking in long skirts but I am careful when I detour through the woods. Pockets? Well. That can be a problem but mostly in the summer. My polartech vests and jackets have zipper pockets. I have systems involving my mini-purse and backpack for managing the lack of pockets in the summer but I won’t bore you with all of that. I know. I am already boring you.

I have to note that during recent times, nobody around here has worn pants. I won’t go any further with that.

Last but not least, as often as I hate facebook and its propensity to disseminate mis-information to the unwashed masses, the bright spot in my absolutely bizarre pants-wearing day was seeing the adult child of one of my BFFs playing a flute (not *her* flute) in a rehab bed down in Missouri. This young flutist (master’s degree) was involved in a serious car accident earlier in the summer with injuries so severe that it was a while before they could totally assess and deal with them. She likely has some head injuries but has made amazing progress. Her mom shares some of the posts the young husband (an Army musical director) makes and today, he posted that he had obtained a rental flute for her to play in the rehab facility. The fact that she kind of sniffed that it was a Gemeinhardt indicates that she is doing pretty darn well.

And that’s about it for tonight. I’m sure it’s more than enough.

La la la.

    I have a couple of skorts, but never wear skirts. I have decent legs, but it’s too much hassle in teaching if I want to bend over or if the skirt is long and ends up catching on desks. 🙂
