What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

electric blanket

on August 5, 2014

When we slept, on winter nights, in an upstairs bedroom of a drafty 1920s Cape Cod on the eastern edge of the US Great Prairie, our dual-control electric blanket served us well. (Nimue’s setting was “3.” Mine was “5.” If they could, the cats would have turned the dials to “10.”) But that was some 20 years ago (as well as 5.5º of latitude and two-and-a-half USDA plant hardiness zones to the north). At our current coordinates, we’re cozy enough under a duvet. I hope the electric blanket will help warm some other couple … all the better if they have cats!

People who are seriously into control never die, they just blank it.

shedding style: give away
destination: thrift store

Comments welcome … how simple, or complicated, is your sleeping paraphernalia?
