A New Favorite
We live in a cold climate in the winter. Not as cold as last winter (Minnesota), but cold. However, our down comforters are just too darn warm. My daughter, during her last visit, complained of how hot hers was even with her window cracked. We, also, are not comfortable with the down comforter and our window is wide open. (We love the sound of the stream right outside.) Not to mention, we would simply go up in a poof of smoke without it's cooling effect. Certainly I would, during one of those wonderful hot flashes. Which brings me to a new favorite find. The Simply Shabby Chic Blanket, found many places, and at a reasonable price, is just what the Dr. ordered! The first one I bought was for our bed at our daughter's in Portland, Or. I loved how soft it was and it was perfect with just a cotton bedspread. So I ordered two for our beds here in Tahoe. Last night was the first good night's sleep I have had. It has two layers of super soft material and is very warm - but not too warm. We slept with our summer quilt and just this blanket - me with just the blanket - and my husband with both. Our window was wide open and - voila - comfortable sleep at last.
