Collars Up

#Socs #Collarsup

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

Considering its not the warmest

Outside, and it

Looks like autumnal weather is here

Like an old friend

Application of a Woollen Jumper or Scarf might be in order

Really good Duffelcoat or Waterproof to keep out the rain

Something tells me we’re going to need it

Until mother nature allows the mercury to rise – its best to

Prepare….stay indoors if you don’t have to go out – wrap up if you do

Return of the Christmas jumper

Salford, 16th December 2018

in response to another Christmas jumper blog page

http://renegade7x.com/2018/12/01/christmas-sweater/

It’s that week again,

They’ve lit the third advent candle 🕯 in church ⛪ this morning so I thought tonight would be a good time to get it out of its hiding space

We don’t need a Christmas tree when I’m wearing this 😀 also, with the mercury falling it keeps me warm when I’m outside in the cold 🥶 whether it be rain ☔️ wind 💨 or snow ❄️

The amazing thing is….I still fit into it…..I’m much like Santa in that respect.

also worn the novelty Santa ties, and customary red jumper….

Running through a rose garden

often ruins your clothes

Specially if you are wearing a woollen jumper

expect those knitted specialities to get

Snagged on a spike or two – creating a hole that’ll need to be patched

The Power of Touch

<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/the-power-of-touch/”>The Power of Touch</a>

It’s a powerful little thing that digit of yours.

As it touches the things around you, its little tiny nerve endings are sending messages to your brain

The soup is hot , the ice cream is cold and so on

But then there’s so much more

The feel of the bark of a growing tree, rugged and rough but occasionally smoothed by moss clinging to it

The Soft feel of a warm woollen jumper on a winter’s morn, telling you this will keep you cosy in the wind

The icy feel of fresh water – travelling down a stream, as it cascades over your hands and through your fingers

The warm feel of a mug of warm soup or Hot Cocoa, a perfect way to conquer those winter blues.

And then there’s its power to communicate

A Wave, a Point, A gesture – and that’s even before we discuss the arts of writing or drawing – they are skills that develop through life, but can be mastered in simple ways through paper, pencils and paint (and perhaps, with help from mum and dad – a potato)

When five digits work together its known as The hand wave.  Used as you spot a loved one at the station – saying “Hello, its great to see you”

The Pat on the Back – The Shake of the Hand – all signals to say to a friend “Well Done”

And then there’s the Hug – a big way for a little person to say ” I Love You, Mum and Dad”

And all the while it hasn’t said a word.

Even though its said thousands.
