Thank goodness...it's Fall!
Time to put away the shorts, bathing suits and other clothes that are not flattering to a person of my age.
Bring on the long pants, the big, bulky sweaters, sweat shirts and coats!
I love this time of year because for 8 months...8 lovely months....I can cover my body and feel secure that no one knows what is under all of my layers...but me.
I start this time of year with a promise to myself to go to the gym regularly and whip my body into shape for next summer.
It does amuse people that I am still wearing my sweat shirts, long pants and big bulky sweaters well into June.
I only take them off when the sweat pours off of me and people start to point and snicker.
If I don't make it to the gym this winter...I may have to wear my wonderful cover up clothes way past the 4th of July. Who's to say that a long coat with a furry hood cannot be fashionable in July?
If people stare, I will just let them know that I am wearing all of these clothes to keep from paying for a sauna.
I may just start a new trend for the over 50 crowd. The very people who saw me wearing my furry Parka this past summer.
Who knows, this July, I may just run into many women at Kroger's wearing long coats with furryhoods......................... and of course sandles to match!
