Great news…..Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow today…so for those who have suffered through this winter….get ready…SPRING is suppose to SPRING up early this year. Since 1887, Phil hasn’t seen his shadow only 16 times, so now we can really put the myth to the test!! Morning newscasters predicted early on today that he would come out, and quickly go back to his hole!! Some said he would not come out at all ….nor anyone else in their right minds with him, But he did, and the die has been cast.
So, please understand, if you wonder why I wore jeans back to back…when I NEVER do that….it is for leg warmth nothing more. We have been given permission to wear school spirit shirts the rest of the week….a big deal for the students who loathe the uniforms for the most part. But, I happen to loathe Spirit shirts….the basic over sized T or polo. So today, I pulled out black and bronze.
I love bronze and when I discovered this scarf on clearance at Target earlier in the week I just had to have it….the bronze snowflakes caught my attention. The bronze pin is also an After Christmas clearance item from Stein Mart…this is one of my many outfits that is more about the accessories than about the clothes.
I suppose I have respect for Bronze because historically, it has its own age…. The Stone Age….The Bronze Age…. the Iron Age…the Industrial Revolution…and now what many call the Digital Age. Bronze was respected because it is a strong metal which will endure time!
I respect it….how about you?? Stay warm everyone…..
