I was up quite late last night and slept late this morning. When I woke up it was soooo cold in my room that my feet were cold under the bedding as was the skin on my arms, my nose, ears etc.... I felt the cold despite having a cat snuggled up to me which generally puts off a lot of heat. We have electric ceiling cable heat (not a great heating choice in my opinion) so each room has a separate heat thermostat (the one good part about this heating system). We don't use much heat in our bedroom because we like it cool. Today was a little too cool since it was 16* outside then. I don't know what the low temp was during the night. (We are up to 20* while I write this). So this brings me to what I am thankful for today.
Flannel Sheets! It amazes me how much warmer they are than regular sheets. I love my flannels in the winter weather. So today the flannels move from the linen closet to the bed and I am thankful to own flannel sheets. I'm also thankful that I haven't needed them until November. Typically we would need them much earlier but our fall has been kinda mild.
