My favorite word today is -- actually, two words. They are ... pillow, and blanket. And really, one isn't much good without the other. When the sun goes down, dinner is over, the dog has been walked, I've had a nice warm bath and smell fairly decent, and it's getting cold outside, my pillow starts beckoning me. It's fluffy and soft and, encased in its flannel pillowcase, luxuriously warm.
When I think about the quilt on top of the soft cotton blanket on top of the flannel sheets just lying there exuding warm fuzzies, I'd go to bed at 7:00 o'clock if I didn't have other things to do. When I do finally crawl in, it feels divine.
It also feels pretty heavenly when I drag my pillow and blankie to the couch for a long, languid nap on a weekend afternoon. Ahhhhh. A good pillow and a warm blanket go a long way.
Have a Happy Hump Day -- and a nap if you can get it.
