fridays with asa: ode to flannel sheets

when frigid gusts do buffet
and a chill winds through the air
i feel my body shiver
then my heart fills with despair.

lest the cold overtake me
i seek comfort, warmth, and heat
surely nothing could suit better
than my cherished flannel sheets!

You are the cutest girl, Miss Asa! Wanna borrow our down comforter that we chewed holes in? Mom's got it in a big trash bag in the closet. We could just ship it to you... ;-)

Oh Asa!
How absolutely fabulous to hear from you after SOOOOOOOO long:)

And what a treat!
That is a very sweet poem. Even Wordsworth would have been proud of you. With all his sunny talk of Daffodils he made us forget the pleasures of a good old snuggle under the blankies:)

Have a HAAPPPEEE weekend.
