I've been told many times before that "I clean up well." I am often surprised to hear those words because in my former life as a teacher I wore dress clothes and "fixed" myself up daily. Well, that's not the case now that I am working towards becoming a Wildlife Biologist. My recent work often has me out in the woods for the better part of a day looking for mountain lions, felling trees, netting fish from a boat or gutting rabbits for rehabilitating raptors. Last year while I was in Costa Rica recording wildlife sounds, I actually was shit on by some Howler Monkeys. I have photographic proof but decided to spare you.
I feel most comfortable in my usual attire of boots, a hat, army green or tan pants and a weatherproof shirt.
But yesterday I was having brunch with some girlfriends to celebrate the upcoming birth of our friend Mariah's baby boy. I have to admit it was nice to put on a spring dress, some pearl's and a pair of Mary Jane's and head off to Denver for a wonderful afternoon with the girls. I felt pretty.
