And when I woke up on this first day of spring to snow (arghh) I was like, what?
Who didn’t send the memo to Mother Nature?
For those of you that commented a week or so ago, you’ll be interested to know that I actually decided to go with the melon/floral sweater, only to discover that it was already sold out! So, I guess it was fate, this blue sweater and me, and I do really like it. I’ve never had a cashmere sweater before. It is perhaps a bit dressy for my jeans and T-shirt, but it’s unbelievably soft!
So, what exactly is a BLOG Party? I don’t know, but I’m keen on making something up!
My motivation is the fact that today would be Mr. Rogers’ 80th birthday (yes, the Mr. Rogers of PBS fame) and the fact that I have a new zippered sweater to wear and … the fact that I have five more copies of Photo Freedom to give away.
Here’s what you have to do to come to my party.
1. Wear a sweater in honor of Mr. Rogers today.
2. Watch the following clip from You Tube, that invites everyone to join in on this Pittsburgh-based, worldwide opportunity to say "thanks" to a great man.
3. Take a photo of YOU in your sweater and either email it to me (put SWEATER in the subject line), or post your photo to your own blog and leave the link below in the comments. Tell me and others, by leaving a comment how you intend to "make the most of this beautiful day"
that’s it — maybe you’ll stop for ice cream on the way home from work, or take a walk outside, or call someone you miss. Maybe you’ll do some random act of kindness or simply stop to notice something instead of rushing past. Whatever it is, do it and then share it here.
On Monday, I will pick five random people from all of the comments and send them a book!
I’ll set up an album here on the blog with sweater pictures from all over — so be sure to send me your name and where you live. Again, if you have your own blog, just send me the link and I’ll pull the photo from your blog! This way, we can spread the word.
and don’t worry that for many of you March 20th is almost over. My version of "wear a sweater day" goes through the weekend!!
