Friday Farm Functionals: Flannel Lined Pants
"Avoid ventures which require purchasing new clothing." -Henry David Thoreau
Not that we really need new clothing, mind you. We want new clothing. So, we needn't avoid our venture- but maybe we should avoid the new clothing? I don't know. It's so nice.
Little Z has two pairs of fleece lined pants that her Grandma Kathleen got for her. She wears them a lot. They look so darned comfy! So, when Lands End catalogue came to our new house (first mail! yay!), and it had flannel lined denim pants for him and her, well, you know. We've just got to have them! I mean, we live in Wisconsin, we go outside. It just follows that we need them, right?
The mail catalogue had options for an elastic waste band and stretch or traditional fabric. I'm not an elastic girl, myself, but I appreciate the option. Truthfully, though, I probably won't get them. I never spend more than $20 on pants, simply because I always find the best ones at thrift stores for around $5.
That's where I got my old wool pants. I used to have some wool pants that I wore snowshoeing. Those were the best, warmest pants ever. I got rid of them after I lived in sunny Pueblo too long. I regret it. They were a bit too tight, too, but I've lost weight since then. Darn. I could still be wearing them!
This is the dilemma of stuff, isn't it? Whenever I move, or just randomly, I decide I have too much stuff, and I get rid of stuff- but then, sometimes, I miss the stuff, you know?
Should we get pants? Vote!
