It’s a beautiful day in the neighborh…well, it’s Friday anyway!

Won’t you be?

As I was doing my morning scroll on The book of Face, ^^ popped up on my feed. As luck would have it, I am indeed wearing a cardigan today (truthfully, I’m a big fan of dressing in layers, so there are strategically hung cardigans all over my space) !

The other thing that immediately popped into my mind when reading this was one of my all time favorite shots of Richard Armitage a la Mr. Rogers:

Seems like a good day to wrap ourselves up in a cardigan and share a kindness or two. Have a kind and cardigany day!!

    And there’s a dusting of snow for those romantics out there! I am also wearing a cardigan.

    Ah, that’s lovely! Mr. Rogers is pretty much unknown over here in The Netherlands but from what I have read he was a very loving and kind man and we can use people like that in our world! Love that RA cardigan picture too. Hope you are well!

      Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood was a staple children’s show on public television in my childhood (well before Nickelodeon et al) with daily lessons about all brands of kindness.

      The cardigan is a feature of the opening sequence where Mr. Rogers comes home and changes from his workplace close into a comfy cardi and sneakers. I confess – RA in the cardigan evokes a *slightly* different warm and fuzzy feeling!! 😁

        I have heard of Mr. Rogers in recent times, I think because they made a movie about him (which I haven’t seen yet). I hear ya on the RA cardigan fuzzies. 🙂

        Oh, and lovely to read a blog post from you again.

    Hi Obscura. Think about you and the Greek gang often. Sometimes it seems we had that adventure in another lifetime. Now traveling is so restricted it seems like such a carefree and fun trip would be impossible today. Anyway, keep cozy in your cardigans.

    • obscura says:

      Hi Kathy!! I think about that trip all the time – so much fun (except for driving to the top of the mountain!!). I’ve really been missing Greece, so I’m looking forward with hope for future adventures!! 🇬🇷
