New Thing #320: Iron Sheet
I've always been somewhat cavalier about the maintenance of my bedding. I wash it, I might fold it and put it away, but mostly I just put it on the bed. And since its livelihood involves so much rumpleage, I don't worry too much about keeping my sheets, duvet or blanket smooth. But what if I did? Today I ironed my sheets. My mother and grandmother do this habitually, and the beds in their respective houses do look unusually lovely. And now my bed has joined their smooth, pleasant-smelling ranks.
