a breath of fresh air

I can feel the change in the air these days. Suddenly, the air is lighter and less humid, the birds seem to be chirping a bit louder, happier maybe! We've been spending a lot of time outdoors, lingering in the park in the evenings, taking little mini-picnics to savor along with the smell of the grass. While we don't get much of real winter here, it does get chilly and since the houses are made more for keeping the heat of the summer at bay, they don't always fare so well in the winter. High ceilings mean that using room heaters is often a wasted effort. What works to keep you cozy at night is a heated blanket instead. I love that you can set the temperature and so it can be used in a variety of temperatures. I always used to be wary of any kind of electric stuff for sleeping, but ever since I used a heating pad at a resort in the hills, I was convinced. They are so convenient to use and work really well. If you're wary of them, start off just by turning it on before you get into bed, so it's all warm and toasty for you to get into.
