Creature Comforts

When the weather starts to get chilly, I start looking for any way at all to keep warm.  I do not enjoy feeling cold--at all.  In fact, as a kid, my favorite place to sit at my grandmother's house was on top of the kitchen radiator.  She had those old steam-heat radiators, and the one in the kitchen was right under the window near the kitchen table.  I'd take a folded dish towel to use for a cushion, and sit down on the warm radiator.   bath-towels

During my senior year in college, I lived off-campus in an apartment.  It was no luxury apartment, let me tell you.  And the northern-Pennsylvania winter was cold and icy.  My roommates and I ventured into hardware stores, looking for plastic to line our windows and any other things we could find that would stop the drafts from blowing through the place.  I used to put my pajamas onto the radiator there, to get them warmed up before I had to put them on.  A Snuggie would have come in handy in that apartment, that's for sure.

Even now, I love to find the warmest spot.  So when we repainted the bathroom a couple of years ago, I had a great idea.  I hung the towel rack directly over the vent for our forced-hot-air heat.  In the early morning, the heat kicks on and warms up my towel while I'm taking a shower.  Nice!

COUPON TIME

Setting up your bathroom?  If I had it to do over again, I'd add one of those heat lamps like hotels have.
