Wear A Cape

It was cool in the house this morning, so I reached over and grabbed my cape. When it was time to manage a Chemex of coffee, I tied the cape around my neck. It’s draped around my shoulders as I type.

Between living in Texas, and going through Chemo, I get chilled easily. If it’s below 60 degrees, I’m cold.

I read once, when you feel a need for comfort, wrap something around your shoulders. All of the shows that have an ambulance in the scene, have the injured person sitting at the back of it wrapped in a blanket. The EMT’s know this secret.

My cape is actually a lightweight blanket.

It comes in it’s own pouch, so my cape travels well. I take it to the grocery store, and movie theater. Anywhere I might get chilled, my cape comes along.

The brand name is ‘Caffeinated Sloth’. You know my love fest over coffee, and the Sloth is a most intriguing animal, so imaging a Sloth on Caffeine makes me smile. I happened upon this blanket in a local coffee shop, and became friends with the owner.

She is a delightful soul, and you can purchase your own cape here. I bought the Retro Paisley for $20.

I bought this for Mother’s Day.

Today, I don’t feel a need to change the world, but I do want to make a difference. I love how this sign reads, ‘nice tiara’, as if there are some ugly ones laying around. On second thought, a nice tiara might be a marvelous addition while I wear a cape.

  1. This may sound strange but I have always had a fascination with capes, but the superhero kind…the kind that (as you said in your post) makes you feel that you can save the world and you are powerful and beautiful and amazing (which we all are cape or not!)

  2. You’re so great! Have you read about the prayer shawl project? Hand knitted shawls for comfort for anyone in need… Also thanks for mentioning Chemex a while back. I googled it & bought one for my husband for birthday! He loves his mindful coffee xx

    1. Aw. Thank you love. xx I believe you’re so great too!!! xx I have not read of it, but will look it up. Sounds like a fabulous mission because wrapping something around your shoulders is great comfort.

      You must really love that man! I love mindful moments, and Chemex is at the top of the list! I’ve always wanted to capture that moment with my camera, but my camera doesn’t do it justice. Google ‘Unspalsh’, and once there, search their photographs for ‘Chemex’. OMG!!!! Simply heaven!

      Much love to you my friend. xxx

      1. πŸ™‚ Barb, are you asking me what my favourite cape is? (The last thing that I want to do is take your question out of context).

        However, if you are referring to products that were linked, I would have to go with the ‘Juicy Blueberry Single Layer Blanket.’

      2. I’m sorry Renard. My question was a little vague. I was wondering what gives you comfort, like the feeling of a cape?

        The colors are beautiful right? I agree. πŸ™‚
