I now own 6 pr., as I went to Costco this morning intending to go inside and measure the Mediums against the Large, and possibly returning the Med. that I bought yesterday (I left them in a bag in the car). It's a good thing I couldn't tell by holding them up in the store, so I bought 3 in Size L. Trying them on at home made up my mind pretty quickly to keep the Large (I'm wearing one now) and returning the Mediums next time I go back to Costco. The Large feels more comfortable in the waist, there isn't a whole lot of difference in the inseam although it might be a fraction of an inch, and while the thighs are a bit larger I don't really care. They fit and look much better than the Hanes men's sweats. The pockets are wonderful as well as the tapered legs. (Sherry, I think you might find the length to be fine - you can probably wear small or xtra small, which would shorten the legs up a bit.) With the $4 off original price offered by Costco, the cost is about twice what I could find Hanes for at Walmart, but the Puma brand are so much better in fit and quality they are worth it.
From there I made a trip to Target - why is it they never have enough cashiers and the lines are long and slow. I bought only a few items, including the Chiquita bananas that I went there specifically for. I don't know what Dole and DelMonte do to their bananas but they sure lack the sweet flavor of Chiquita. And I just love saying the name "Chiquita" !
I can't go to Target without a stop at Michaels at the other end of the parking lot. I bought a set of sketching pencils - I have two but one is very dark and the other is light, and I need some that are in between. They were on sale, as were two other items I bought. I really have to stay out of that store because if I go in to buy one simple item, I always find other things I need (can use/would like to have).
When I came out of Target the rain was pouring down. Of course I was parked far away from the entrance, as I always do wherever I shop in order to get a bit more exercise. I finally decided I wouldn't melt and just walked into the rain. We need it and I don't complain about it although I have an excellent crop of weeds already.
My daughter is having foot surgery on Monday so I'm going over tomorrow morning to drink coffee with her (maybe work the NYT crossword) and just try to reassure her about the operation. I had a bunion removed when I was just a couple of years older than she is now. Worst thing I ever did - it was fine for a lot of years but has gotten so bad again that it hurts to walk. It isn't so much the bunion but the displacement of other bones years after the surgery.
I didn't make the chicken vegetable soup yesterday so I just finished it this morning. Mmmmm good! My fridge looks a lot emptier.
The rain looks like it will be around for a while, but the overnight temp looks to be a bit warmer as well. I'll take that!
