This December I'm participating in An Advent of Gratitude to help remind me of the gifts I already have, what I often take for granted, and what I can and should be grateful for.
If I slept in a warm bed last night, my instructions told me to pay $2. I did, and I did.
When the temperatures dip, one of my first tasks is to remake the bed for winter. The first layer is a set of flannel sheets. Next is a soft fleece blanket, and a comforter goes on top of everything.
Hubby Tony and I have different nighttime requirements. He actually gets colder than I do, so he uses all of the bedding layers (and sometimes even wears a long sleeved shirt). I go to bed with a short sleeved, knee length gown. Depending on how hot my internal thermostat is running I will use one or two layers of covers. Often the covers go on and off multiple times during the night.
It doesn't help my temperature fluctuations when Pepper the Cat joins us on the bed to lend his body heat to the mix. He doesn't seem to get insulted, though, if I kick him over to the other side to wrap himself around Tony's legs.
