Flannel Sheets

Now that I've said flannel sheets I think I can just log out. Need I say more?

When you go anywhere to buy sheets you have to look at everything and sort of know just what you want. I mean there's thread count to consider: 200, 300, 400, 500, all the way up to 800 I heard recently. Then there is Egyptian cotton, combed cotton, 100% cotton, sateen, satin and I am probably missing a few.
Just say flannel and it seems there isn't much more to discuss.
Recently, I went into my local Costco where they had for sale new flannel sheets for 29.00 a set. Pretty dang reasonable and they had nice prints on them. So I bought a set, took them home, gave them a run through the washer and dryer, put them on the bed and waited to see what the husband would say when we got into bed.
By the time I climbed into bed I didn't care what he thought anymore because the sheets didn't feel cold, I stayed warm all night, and I haven't had to turn on the electric blanket since then. The good news was, he was having the same thoughts as I was. Unless it gets severely cold I don't think I'll need the electric blanket again, and all for the bargain price of 29.00. Non flannel sheets at Costco usually cost 45.00 or so.
I came across a set of flannel sheets in my basement so I must have purchased them before, but I don't recall having this experience. Makes me wonder why, unless wherever I was living at the time wasn't as cold as this old farm house in the pacific northwest. Maybe it's because they have improved the thread count....they just don't have to brag about it. After all, they're flannel sheets. Need I say more?
