Flannel Sheets







Chilly weather brought on the traditional change to the
flannel sheets in our home.  The task took quite a bit
longer than it usually does, since I had a 'helper'. ha.

Lynne ~ this one's for you!

  1. Today I put my flannel sheets on the bed, and I had help from Dinky. Great minds think alike. We had out first snow flurry today.

  2. Betsy! Could you hear me screaming all the way from NC? That first photo in particular is the money/come hither shot. If I were able to travel, I wouldn't be able to keep myself from making a trip to Ohio. Tell the truth. Did you buy those sheets to match his coat? I think he knows how well they match him. Can't believe how lucky you were that he found your house. Lynne

    1. I knew this would make you laugh! haha....Actually, this is the third winter we've had these sheets...bought them to match the bedroom. But he sure picked the right home, didn't he? How did he know that not only would I take him in and treat him well, but he would be my favorite color! lol....he makes me smile every day. He also has tripled in weight since he arrived....what a big, heavy furball he is! :)

  10. I love it. Cats seem to find the best of everything for themselves and they don't understand why you just don't leave things alone. Cute cat.

  13. We're having our first really cold weather this week, so next time I change the sheets I'll replace the warm weather set with the flannels. I'll probably have help, too "-)

    1. It was noticeably colder today...I think the dampness along with the cooler temps made it feel worse. Brr. I can't sleep if I'm cold!
      Yes, you will have double the help! :)

  14. I beat you to it. I've had the sheets on for over a week now. And...the cats thank me. "Hi Slate, you gorgeous creature."

    1. I bought a new cat bed and the cats haven't given it a second look yet. Why would they with comfy big beds here? lol....

  15. Oh this is so funny because Molly does the same thing. EVERY time I strip the bed to change sheets, she's in the middle of the mix. Takes forever, but she loves it...and I guess I do too. Our play time.

  18. Little Cat likes to "help" me make the bed sometimes. I'm just glad she doesn't want to be under the covers like Bethany's cat used to. I just can't stand the "lumps" it makes. :D

    1. We had a cat like that...my first cat...slept all day like that! I had forgotten it until you mentioned it!

  19. Gorgeous kitty. And I know what that kind of help is like. One of my cats seems to know that exact moment when the top sheet is billowing in the air and about to settle, to charge in from wherever she was in the house and dive under it. Gotta love cats.. and your little helper kitty is beautiful.
