We do our best to conserve on energy, particularly when it comes to heating our home. Living green is a prime motivator. So is saving green. Days are easy, we dress warmly and keep the temperature in the sixties. Bedtime is another story. Sleep does not come easily when you are cold. Add too many blankets and you'll just feel weighted down and confined. In the north, we always used electric blankets, dialing the amount of heat we needed. Didn't suppose those were used much in the south. Time to think again. Today Calico returned from the store with three of them. My granddaughter is quite excited. And so am I. I'm feeling toastier just thinking about it.
