I'm truly a slacker in the area of Winter attire. I am also a true hater of wearing socks, finally slipping them on out of necessity in early November, and shedding them in March if the weather co-operates. Until a few weeks ago, I've gotten by wearing Frye boots most of the Winter and donning Uggs in extreme weather.
We all know that Uggs are best worn by teenage girls to the shopping mall, with a TNA faux fur trimmed Parker with black leggings underneath, or by late night dog walkers wearing plaid flannel pajama pants. They look awful on large feet, and I feel quite frumpy in them, plus my feet flop around with no support and even less grip. So this year, I'm donating my Uggs and have purchased my first really sensible pair of Winter boots. People who wear Sorel's tell me they last for 20 years, and so despite looking a bit like a man boot, I have succumbed to their warm, waterproof, sturdy gripping comfort, as well I am wearing as a wool hat, something I have never worn in the 40 years since I arrived in this country. I just don't have the right head for a hat....but 2013 sees me throw caution to the wind.
With me finely attired in my new Winter wear, Frenchie and I set out this morning for our walk, and what to his wandering eye should appear? but a little plastic bag of weed, lying on the sidewalk. He snatched it with lightning speed and I, in turn snatched it with greater lightening speed from his chops before he could devour it and become a very HAPPY pup.
Eucerin Cream used to be only available from the pharmacist. It was the base that other creams are mixed into, such as cortisone. My California friend used it for her kids eczema, and recommended to me for my kids. Now you can buy it from the drug store shelf. I use it all year long and also put it on my face at night. I swear it fight wrinkles. That's my secret tip for you today.
