As the nights get colder, we need to cocoon ourselves in warmer things. Of course.
Keeping the cotton sheets, at first we changed just the blanket. Our usual blanket is tired, worn thin, and supposed to be one of those ultra warm things. Instead, it is ugly but just right. We have another one. Fluffy and thick. It proved not quite warm enough for the 50 degree weather with the windows open.
So we put the quilt on. I use it for the bedspread, but during the 30 and 40 degree nights, it is the perfect coverlet. Nope too hot. Not only did I dream, but I remembered most of it all as I tossed and turned. Really awful action movie stuff. So did G.
Last night, we put the flannel sheets on then laid our worn out old blanket on top. What a gift to sleep wonderfully all night long. Snug as a bug in a rug….now where did I get that?
How do you all stay warm during the chilly or downright cold winter nights?
