The kids returned after being away for a week on a family cruise. They had a great time and brought me back all kinds of cute bits and pieces of Mexican art and jewelry. Nothing expensive, because I love the cheap tchotchkes. I have a new magnet for my filing cabinet, a ceramic Aztec mask, a bright yellow agate toucan—that sort of thing. I’m in heaven. 🙂
Last night I climbed into my own bed and was asleep in two seconds. Swear. My bed has a pillow-top mattress and a memory foam pad on top of it. I rarely turn my mattress, because I like that slight hollow my body has made in all that foam. It’s like a cuddle when sink into it. Plus, my collection of cushions—large, small, furry, silky—get tucked around me, too. Under my neck, at the small of my back. Ahhhhh.
So, do you love your bed? Does it feel like a cuddle when you climb inside the covers?
Btw. That pic is not my bed. My bed has a sturdy Shaker-slatted frame. My quilt top is covered in orange and red medallions, and the colors of the pillows make it look like the inside of a gypsy’s wagon…
Oh my beds have been handy downs. I have never gone out and picked out a mattress just for me. My latest bed used to belong to my aunt Agnes. It’s queen size and it fits me and my two large dogs perfectly.
This made me laugh. After many many many many years of marriage my husband convinced me we are not in college anymore and we can afford a new bed. We got a new mattress king size box spring and a bed frame that we fondly refer to as the Game of Thrones bed. We love it. The new big mattress alone was life changing. Even better the bed was almost a yard sale price bc I love a good tag sale but the mattress is new big and delicious.
I love coming back home to my own bed! Hubby and I splurged on a Sleep Number mattress, with an adjustable frame, before I had surgery 10 years ago. It’s one of the best purchases we’ve ever made.
Glad to hear that you’re able to rest comfortably again.
I love my bed. Coming home after being away makes me so happy since I can sleep in my own bed.
LOL! Love hearing that others love their beds, too!
