I was SO happy to hear the ding of my motion alarm. Unlike the melamine plates, THIS baby would be worth stealing. I grabbed it off the porch immediately with a big smile on my face. Tonight I shall be WARM!!!
I rolled it out on to the bed and plugged it in. Please PLEASE work! In a couple of seconds, I felt the lovely warm of a tepid cup of tea. I sure hope it warms up more than this. There's nothing like slipping into a nice HOT set of sheets, whereupon I turn the control down to "barely on". Any more than that and it all ends up on the floor in the middle of the night because I got too hot.
I was a little concerned with the reviews of this blanket. It said something about the nap of the fabric making it move throughout the night, finally landing it on the floor. That didn't happen with me. Maybe those guys have satin sheets, right???
After an hour at the highest setting, I jumped into bed with the puppies. OH YEAH ..... WARM!!! Not near as warm as the blanket on my other bed, but warm nonetheless. My newest quilt covered it up nicely and kept me comfy cozy all night long.
Even the puppies appreciated it. Cooper never moved. Unfortunately Jessie got overheated a couple of times. She shall be relegated to the floor if she doesn't lay still.
It was so nice and warm I slept in 30 minutes. That never happens. YAY for electric blankets!!
By the way, just because you have a quilt, doesn't mean it is warm. I have discovered, even with wool batting, these things are just as thin as a skinny blanket. You need at least two on a bed (if you can stand the weight), or one with a nice thick blanket, to make the equivalent of a down comforter. Quilt does not equal warm. Who knew???
I'm still working on the fridge. I stopped in at a locally owned appliance store to see what they had. I think I can get the same price as Lowe's, although their selection is not near as large. The good news is they have a guy who can cut out the cabinet.
He was supposed to stop by last night, but was still working on two projects at 6:15 when he called. At least he called. We scheduled again for today. In the meantime, I got rather impatient. I grabbed a screwdriver and ripped out the bottom of the cabinet.
I don't see a problem with cutting off half an inch in the front. I doubt I will even have to stain the edge because it won't be seen. The same guy does the installation, so hopefully I will soon have a beautiful new refrigerator.
A warming trend is coming through with daytime temps in the very low 70's, nights only 41. Maybe I can get out for some photography without icicles hanging off my chin.
