Finally! After sleeping with just a thin single sheet for a long, long, hot summer, the nights are becoming cool enough to graduate to a duvet cover instead.
A re-launder of it and a hanging out to dry in the noonday sun gave it a fresh smell, as well as yielding a picture for Shadow Shot Sunday.
Who knows when it will ever get cold enough to have to stuff the feather blanket itself inside the duvet cover. We still have almost every day in the low 30s C/ low 90s F.
Looking from this low angle gave me a flash-back to growing up in the big city of Chicago. As kids we would drape a sheet over a table and play under it, pretending it was a tent or wigwam or teepee.
Good adventures, even if they were really only on the living room floor and not the forest floor.
I just learned this from Wikipedia:
The term "Duvet day" is used in some countries to describe an allowance of one or more days a year when employees can simply phone in and say that they are not coming in to work, even though they have no leave booked and are not ill.
The provision of this benefit became fashionable in the late 1990s with many larger companies in the UK.
