Fair Weather Friend
John has been accusing me of being his fair weather friend because I have been skipping the early morning ritual of pear burning. It is sooo cold and he is going sooo early. Really it is hard for me to get around to my medicine ritual, collect everything I need, and get dressed warmly. So to make it up I went with him right after lunch to repair some fence. Cardinals were all over the ranch. I've never seen so many in one place. It was still cold so I dug out everything warm I could find that hasn't been worn in years. I even wore something that belonged to my daughters and went out of style probably in the 70's. I knew I was going to need those things one of these days. I can't remember what they are called. They are not socks and they are not leggings. They go over your jeans and run from your ankle to your knee and they are warm and something I was saving for If it ever snows in south Texas again. They were highly in style when my girls were teens. Anyone know the name?
