In Minnesota comfort sometimes comes with cooler weather.
There was a quilt display on the courthouse lawn last Saturday.
I really liked the yellow one on the right. It belongs to a little girl from California and she sleeps with it when she visits her Grandma in Minnesota. No doubt she is comforted.
Comfort for me, is having my own pillow and being able to have my body on the same level as my head..then I can sleep…I like noise too, the constant noise of a TV will lull me to sleep.
Other people I know struggle with getting comfortable. Last night, Jen came downstairs..and told everyone ( the grand boys and me) that we had to be quiet..she could not get to sleep whilst the boys and I were talking. She has really good hearing..and she sounded really fierce..so we just whispered. Last weekend she came all the way downstairs to turn the volume of our TV way down..we practically had to lip read what the people on the TV said..it was a good thing that we had seen the movie Stand By Me before. I think ear plugs might be a wonderful gift for her, perhaps we could find one of those fancy nighttime blindfolds and attach some ear plugs.
I can sleep through almost anything..except silence..if the TV goes off in the night or someone shuts it off..I am immediately awake.
Comfort is elusive sometimes, if only it were as simple as reaching for a quilt made by your grandmother:)
