It is cold…below zero and windy so the wind chills are unbearable. Seems like we are stuck in this below zero weather pattern for a few days.
The only respite for me is picking a cleaning /organizing project or several every morning to complete. Then I get most of the rest of the day to hibernate and do what ever I want.
The best thing I did last fall was to find some flannel in my stash and sew up some squares. This is leftover fabric from my flannel valance in the kitchen…I finally got that part of the kitchen cleaned and put up the flannel valance over the weekend. It makes the kitchen seem warmer somehow.
Anyways back to my creation…I sewed up three sides and most of the fourth side, turned it right side out and put a bunch of whole kernel corn inside from the Farm Supply Store. Then I sewed up the opening…it’s not fancy. If you throw it in the microwave for three minutes you can be toasty warm under a down comforter. If you microwave it longer than three minutes it starts to smell like burnt corn.
I take one of these to sleep with me most every night, I have arthritis in one leg due to an old injury and if I am cold or my leg is cold I cannot sleep. It is also perfect for extra warmth whilst watching a movie on Netflix in the afternoon…of course the warmth usually sends me off to napland!
