The inside of my car is a total disaster area. Toys, papers, a sippy cup or two, and what looks like several pieces of winter wear on and around the passenger seat. Gloves (mine) hats, a cowl and scarf or two, mittens....you name it! Anyway, it snowed yesterday and the day before, so I was sure to have some woolies. I drove to a construction meeting at my new job, then took a tour of the site and went back to work.
I came back this morning to do a few more interviews, and I pulled up close to the building. The first thing to catch my eye was the church next door's back entrance. The church itself is a simple building, with beige bricks. I catch a flash of cobalt, purple and gray on the oil delivery pipe. My scarf!
I parked and then rushed over to it. It was dirty and frozen solid, it must've been swept out of the car when I was loading my stuff into the passenger stuff. (Anyone that knows me knows that I travel with a plethora of "stuff" at any given time!) Some thoughtful person found it and draped it there, hoping that the person missing such a pretty thing would notice it. And a pretty thing indeed...it was just the "midwinter" thing to beautify the all-white environment. I only wish that my hands hadn't been full of applicant files, I would have loved to get a photo of it there.
I brought it in to my interview, and it started to thaw. But no worries, a loving soak in some Eucalan and then re-blocking, followed by a treatment with the pilling comb, and it will be restored to it's original beauty.
