The topic was chosen by me. It was to be 'adult blankie' for that something that we have kept and find comfort in. I gave an alternative topic in case it was thought that the blankie one might be difficult. Well,
My 'adult blankie' is a sweater - actually three sweaters. They all belonged to my father who was 6'3" and around 300 pounds. I am 5'6" and nowhere close to 300 pounds, so the sweaters do not even remotely fit. But I wear them anyway. I keep one in my locker at school (pictured to the above), one on the back of the bathroom door here at the farm house, and one on a hook in the hallway of our trailer at the lake(I don't have a pic of it).
The one at school I put on when I am cold and have not layered up for the day so am in need of a extra layer. I also wrap up in it when I put my feet up and take a quick nap before driving home.
I wear the blue one pictured below over whatever I am wearing around the house. I have it on over my pjs as I type this(I stayed home from school today).
I have just recently started going through the memorabilia of my parents ---particularly my dad's sermons. I can now do it without being rendered useless by tears. I have held onto things that I should have sent to a brother so he could organize them (dad's sermons). I just couldn't 'deal' with the sorting and packing and letting go.
The sweaters never bothered me like the other things did.They have always simply brought comfort---thus the 'adult blankie' topic.
I am late in putting this out and Francesca has moved on to another post.

[I usually have jeans and a t-shirt or pjs on when I wear the blue sweater. But I wanted to get a picture and did not want it to be me in my pjs. So I had my husband take one of me when I got home from school yesterday.]
