Polar Fleece

There are some things in our modern society that are really good improvements…. others maybe not so much.  Perhaps more on that later…..   The improvements of fabric and the invention of Polar Fleece is an improvement that’s really good, in my humble opinion!

I’ve been lazy today.  (I know…. lucky me!)  I was suppose to go to a meeting this afternoon, but the headache I’d been sporting all night hadn’t gone away by the time I needed to get ready…. so I opted out.  Consequently. I’ve been sitting around in my PJ’s today!

Last night I put on a clean pair of jammies with polar fleece bottoms.  I had been so cold the night before by the time I got to bed that I had to throw an extra blanket over me to even warm up.  I thought I’d see if the fleece bottoms would take the place of a blanket…. and they did!  With fuzzy socks on my feet and the fleece wrapped around my legs by way of jammie bottoms, I was nice and cozy all night long!

My easy chair sits a few feet away from the window area in our family room, so at certain times of the day it can get cold.  I usually have a little blanket across my lap.  Today with my PJ’s still on, I was nice and warm… though I still used the blanket.  I truly do love being warm and cozy…. not hot like summer heat…. just cozy.

I’m so grateful for polar fleece today!  It’s a wonderful fabric that is used in jammie bottoms, jackets, hats, gloves, blankets and probably a host of other things!  I’d be surprised if you didn’t have something made at fleece at your house right now!  Go cozy up if you’re cold!

I am Grateful!  How are You?

Warmth

What’s the temp where you are right now?  Chances are …… pretty cold, right???  MAN… it’s cold out there!  I could make this post mentioning a dozen things regarding what I’m thankful for…. just related to warmth!

Last night as I went to bed I was chilly.  Very often I will throw an extra light weight blanket on my side of the bed. (My husband’s pretty much a furnace… I’m always cold!)  But last night after trying to get warm with the light weight blanket, I gave up and went for the big fuzzy warm one.

This is an ice castle in Midway, UT Now that's cold!

Slept nice and warm all night….. just a little crowded, however, cause Scooter likes the fuzzy blanket too.  Then tonight as I sit here, I cranked up the fire place to warm up the room and I still sit with a small blanket across my lap.  I do like being cozy.  I don’t like being hot though.  I have to be just right!  That’s not picky….. that’s just typical!

Today I really am beyond grateful to be sitting here in my nice cozy house being warm.  I can’t imagine what it would be like to not have anywhere warm to go right now.  I am truly blessed!

I am Grateful!  How are you?

Heat

Today I am grateful for heat!!  On this chilly December morning….. I woke to see shadows of smoke coming from neighboring houses’ chimneys.  I looked out to see the frost on the ground and it occurred to me that I am VERY grateful to be inside a nice warm cozy house where I can control the temperature to what is comfortable for me…. either by turning up the heat , flipping a switch to start a fire in the fireplace,or even wrapping up in a blanket or warmer clothes!  How lucky is that!  

I told my husband the other day while we were driving home  that I didn’t think I’d make a very good homeless person!  I DON’T like being cold!!  It sends shivers up my spine and makes my back ache!  So today….. I am grateful for heat.  I am grateful that I am blessed to be in a situation where I have control over that.

When you take a minute to realize the impact that something like heat has on you….. it brings to mind a LOT of other things to be grateful for that we just take for granted.  But I won’t expound on those today!  I still have 362 days to go!!

I am grateful!  How are you?
