Tomorrow is the calendar’s onset of the fall season.
It’s when I begin to think about soups and stews and cold weather food. Which means I’ll need to get my crock pot out.
The Importance Of Good Bedding:
And because I spend a good amount of time in my bedroom, my bedding is an important part of my fall and winter preparations.
“Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolor, Summer an oil painting, and Autumn a mosaic of them all.”
— Stanley Horowitz
The Comfort Of Routines:
After I take a shower in the evening, I go back to my bedroom and watch a bit of British TV. Often I will then pick up my iPad and browse Pinterest or check the next day’s weather.
And then an hour or so of reading takes place before bedtime.
I turn out the lights around 9-10. I’m an early to bed, early to rise sort of gal.
I always follow a routine. I think routine is vital to one’s mental health. Especially during these trying times.
My Fall & Winter Bedding:
I take a couple of clothespins and clip the lined curtains together so no light gets in. The alley has lights that sometimes bother me. I prefer a darkened bedroom.
“A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.”
It’s important to take care of you, because no one else knows you better than you know yourself. You know the kind of linens you like and how firm the pillows need to be.
Then Comes October:
September will blend into October and the crickets will start up their chorus at night. Unlike me, crickets are largely nocturnal creatures.
And then when you’re nice and comfortable and warm, let the crickets chirp you right to sleep.
