Flannel Sheets

Gina and David got me flannel sheets for Christmas. They are very comfy and the patchwork pattern of autumnal northern woodlands images goes well with my brass bed and favorite green blanket. I didn't think to ask for sheets. I have adequate sheets. I don't *need* sheets. But I felt cheered waking up in these *new* sheets, seeing the bright busy pattern.

I ate an orange and finished the split pea soup for dinner. But didn't get much else done today.

I have a mammogram and a physical scheduled for next week and they are looming over me like a schoolyard bully. I hate being poked and prodded. That week of dental work and doctor visits before the Solstice really wrung me out. I need a long stretch of alone time so I can pull back and recover from the stress of last month. Yesterday's banking kerfuffle didn't help with my stress levels, it had me in tears. It's been a couple years since a financial setback brought me to tears.

I really need some time to recover, some time without any demands looming over me, some time with no deadlines or obligations wearing me down.

Yay for warm flannel sheets on a cold night.
