Yarn & Bedtime Warmth

Dear John,
 
Today was one of the most beautiful days I've ever seen. Excuse me - yesterday was. It's past midnight now. But it's still a lovely night.
 
It was in the 70s with low humidity, mostly sunny with a few clouds. Perfect day. I got up early, ran errands, did a bit of housework, had some social time, took a nap, walked the dog, and knitted.
 
The knitting provided the excitement of the day. I made a mistake on the heel and had to take the whole heel out to fix it. Then I started on the foot and found another mistake where the foot meets the heel. I left it and came to bed. I'm too tired to be trusted with sharp, pointy objects. I'll fix it tomorrow, after I've had a good night's sleep.
 
We've been having lovely nights. It's been in the low 50s and, since it's me, the house is open. So I've slept the last two nights in a flannel nightgown. It's wonderful to snuggle under the covers in flannel, with just my head out in the cool night air. All the critters help keep the bed warm, too. But not like you did! You put out so much heat. I'd snuggle up to you in the winter and keep my distance in the summer.
 
Our nights are going to stay cool. I could use your warmth at night. Come by if you can - cuddle with me again on a cool night. The animals will gladly make room for you.
 
Miss you,
Joan.
