TBT: It’s Sweater Weather, Even if You Have to Wear it on Your Head

by admin on December 4, 2015

For this week’s “Throw Back Thursday,” I chose a blog post from three years ago. Two reasons why. The first is that the mild fall we had this year in St. Louis reminded me of the weather we had that year.

The second is that shortly after Thanksgiving that same year, one of my two loyal “office assistants” — Luke — passed away unexpectedly. Luke’s the “sweater head” in the photo on the right. Nemo’s the other guy. And here is the post from the past:

Fall has always been my favorite time of year.  The start of a new school year feels like a fresh start for everyone, and the cooler weather is a welcome change from the hot summer– especially this year, with the 100+ degree temperatures here in St. Louis.005

Although the heat seemed reluctant to relax its grip this fall, it’s finally what I call  “sweater weather,” perfect for sitting on the front porch with my two “office assistants,” Luke and Nemo.

They’re now able to wear their own “sweaters,” courtesy of a trip I took to Iceland this past summer. I don’t know how long they’ll keep them on, but I know from experience that they’ll keep sitting on the front porch with me until it’s too cold for me to write outside. I draw the line on typing with mittens on!
