Flannel Nightgowns

It is the season for warm pajamas and lounging clothes. I got out a flannel nightgown I bought in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. On a Fourth of July weekend. I was very cold there. My night gown is not one of those frilly ones but it is one that is very plain and looks like a night shirt, with a button placket. It has pictures of many different light houses. It is looser now than when I bought it. I guess I am trending smaller. We ate. I have washed all the dishes. I made hummus, then took a shower. I will enjoy the hummus tomorrow on some Keto bread. I often find flannel night clothes too hot to sleep in, but just right for lounging around.

If you were here you would be lounging around in thick warm thermals with a pair of gloves on, and maybe a hat lol. It's been bitter all day.

If I was lounging, that is likely. I keep moving, though, and then I sweat.

@GardenGerty No danger of sweating here at the moment. 5C, not even 6pm

@JimBo452020 If I were there I would likely crawl in a warm cozy bed.

Flannel is one type of fabric that is warm. I cannot wear sweat clothes to work, so I wear layers.

I do not like it all the time. It is easier to roll over in bed in something silky.

@rakski We have had some cold days in the last two weeks and some really hot days. Today should be "just right", then we will cool off again.

We actually had to turn the AC on today. It was very humid and sticky inside. I am not ready for the flannel sheets or nightgowns!! Not a cold weather person. We should dip into the 40's later this week and I asked hubby where he wanted to go. I was ready to book a room somewhere with good heat. This house is too drafty.

I have one nightie that's so comfy and cosy that I hate having to get dressed when I have it on. It's not flannel and not terry cloth, but something inbetween in a waffle weave.

My mom would have called the waffle fabric "pique" I believe. I can identify with it being a favorite.

@GardenGerty And now that it's getting colder, I'll be wearing it soon.

I usually only wear a t-shirt to sleep, I like a warm duvet, but I feel too warm if I wear more.

T shirt knit is the most universally comfortable, I think.

@GardenGerty It's fine, because I like to read in bed, at least I do not get cold shoulders.

How is the keto bread? I'm going to start it again in a few weeks.

I like this bread okay. It does not really taste like the bread I like, but I have to do something to reduce grains for my blood sugar.

@GardenGerty I've made the low carb pizza crust. I used almond flour. It was okay but also had a different taste.

I had quite a few in my lifetime. I do not necessarily want to live in pjs, but I like soft knit leggings and soft cuddly shirts.

The older I get the harder it is to be really comfortable in bed.

This one was okay. I turn on a fan, and we turn down the furnace.

I love flannel and would wear it all the time if it weren't so hot here most of the year. But I definitely always have a flannel gown for when it does get cold - day or night

I have a fluffy bathrobe I will wear over anything. Truly a "house coat".

Is Keto bread made of things like rice?

No. Rice is very high carb. The recipe I have has almond flour, and coconut flour, and I stirred in flax seed meal today. Walmart has a nut blend flour that combines almond, coconut, flax seed and walnut flour. I let the bag I had get buggy or I would just use that.
