You would think that living in the larger Phoenix area means that we do not get cold weather. That is what I thought….before I moved here. I was surprised to find that we get quite a bit colder in the winter then Southern California where I grew up.
Well, the cold weather has certainly arrived at my house. Last night it dropped into the 20’s with two more nights of the same temps to come.
I do like an excuse to pull out my big sweaters, but I must confess that I just love the comfort of wearing old jeans, slippers and a hooded sweatshirt around the house.
Right now in my closet, I have two sweatshirts….one from my first college, Westmont (they have some of the most beautiful landscaping). The other is my USC (University of Southern California) sweatshirt that my dad bought for me 4 years ago. I did not attend USC, but my dad did and he was a die hard SC fan until his death 3 years ago. I always feel closer to him whenever I put on my USC sweatshirt which is why I am wearing it now.
What I do not have in my closet is a ASU (Arizona State University) sweatshirt. It is kind of sad really…..I mean I graduated from ASU and it is only about 30 minutes from my home. **I think I need to add this to my Christmas list – what do you think about a zip-up sweatshirt with ASU across the front?
This morning as I drove through my neighborhood, I found an interesting assortment of items from my neighbor’s linen closets decorating their front gardens.
