When I go to bed in the winter I pull the sheet and comforter all the way up under my chin. As the weather turns warm I gradually get used to sleeping without heavy covers on top of me, and by time summer comes I don't even use a sheet and need the ceiling fan on to circulate the air. As the weather cools off the process gets reversed, but it takes me a week or so to get used to the change in temperatures.
When I got into bed last night I couldn't get comfortable; it was too cold for just a sheet but too warm with the comforter on. I tried using the heavier cover and sticking my feet out, but they got cold. I tried pushing the comforter down to the end of the bed and sticking my feet under it while putting the sheet over the rest of my body. That was too hot.
I needed to find a way to cover up only my neck, shoulders, and feet. Eventually I came up with an ingenious solution; I got a large scarf out of my closet, wrapped it around my body like a shawl, then climbed into bed and pulled the sheet halfway up. I was asleep in no time!
