Happiness is a warm blanket.......that's what my yoga classes thought today. Our temps never got out of the forties today, rain had fallen most of the morning, and the leaves here in Alabama are truly ablaze. I made sure that the yoga blankets were washed and dried today and ready for class. As each class got ready for savasana,
I asked if anyone wanted a cozy blanket.....almost everyone raised their hand.....and as I wrapped each one in their blanket, there were plenty of smiles. It was a great start to their weekend.
Happiness for me tonight......purple flannel sheets, that are thick and soft and warm. If you have never slept on flannel sheets when it is cold, treat yourself, to the thickest softest ones you can afford. When you run them through the rinse cycle, add a little lavender oil......the sandman will find you with no problem.
I love the tactile experience, when I was a little girl my mom dressed me in organza ruffled dresses that were so stiff and scratchy, for me as an adult, clothing had to feel good.....I became a fabric snob......touch was everything. Even now, when I shop, I touch first, then look at the style. My first major was merchandise and design......one of my favorite classes, textiles and fabric.
If you are feeling the first taste of fall, if there is a crispness in the air......I bet there is a favorite sweater or jacket that you reach for.......it makes you feel warm, and cozy and safe and loved......like a hug from a long lost friend. Enjoy your weekend, be sure to wear something warm and soft, and think of me!
Good night, Sweet dreams
