Return of the Duvet

Here, where I live, it is winter. A few storms already have left our world silver and crunchy. The furnace kicks on a million times a day when the temperature drops below -5 degrees, and nights get a whole lot cosier.

After putting the third quilt on the bed the other night my Hubby pointed out that it might be time to bring out the down duvet. Sigh. After airing and washing and fluffing and stuffing I put the duvet on our bed and folded the quilts for cuddles on the couch instead.

And for some inexplicable reason I found myself singing this song and doing a dancing while no one is watching jig.

Wait - are you saying your thermostat is set to come on when it hits -5 in the house? You Calgarians are tough!
We have our duvet on, too, but as I am constantly hot flashing, I have a quilt that I keep by the bed to swap out for myself when the duvet gets too toasty.
P.S. Rooting for you guys in the Grey Cup on Sunday!

Since my hubby likes a cool room, the heat vents are never open and thus the duvet stays on all year long, plus an extra flannel rag quilt on my side. Wasn't the hoar frost beautiful this week. Stay warm!

My quilt is on top of the down duvet already. Oh and there is a lap quilt on my bed just for extra. I think it might be colder here in Edmonton.

The duvet never leaves our bed. We just add a quilt on top come winter.

I was thinking we might need to add a thicker blanket yesterday- My husband thought I was a bit crazy as we already have two quilts and two blankets on it..
The weather has been cold in Edmonton and so an extra blanket still is useful. Thanks for participating in the blog hop.
