We took our coffee out on the porch this morning. It's a lovely day, cool and breezy, no humidity to speak of, and the sun is brilliant on the changing leaves. A perfect fall day.
Except that we could only stay out there a few minutes! Even with the bright sun, the wind made it too cold to be comfortable. I am wearing capris today (painting pants, as I'm in the middle of a few projects) and they weren't the best choice.

Was I cold when we had days like today? I don't recall my legs being cold, but they must have been. And I sure do remember the chill of the wind blowing up our dresses! Brrrrr.

These days I see women going bare-legged all year round, even in winter and when wearing heels. It seems so odd to me. And shorts--people wear those year-round too, even the mail carriers in town. With all the choices we have to be warm, I marvel that people choose to be cold. I guess I'm just old-fashioned, but I do like the look of hose on a woman's legs, and so does my husband. I see photos of movie stars in formal wear, all dressed up, diamonds sparkling...and bare legs. Looks unfinished to me somehow, and at odds with the elegant dresses.
Back to the porch, with long pants and a sweatshirt this time!
