With the approach of winter...and of Christmas, I happened to find a place where I could find my very own "ugly sweater" in my size (though I have to admit that I don't find this sweater "ugly" at all...I think it's cute!)
This sweater, and another, with a penguin on it, arrived this morning and I was thrilled with them both. I wore the sweater to Atria today when I had lunch with my mother.
She loved the sweater. All three times she first saw it. When I arrived (11:30), I woke her up and she never noticed what I was wearing until I pointed it out to her. Then she told me how much she liked it.
On our walk to the restaurant, she suddenly noticed my sweater and said how much she liked it and asked when I got it.
At lunch, she pointed the sweater out to Margaret, at our table and they talked about how cute it was.
Then on the walk back to the apartment, she noticed it again and she asked when I got it and told me that it was cute and how nice that I got myself a new sweater. Sigh.
