I LOVE MY BED
My friends will think I have lost my flippin' mind when they see this picture. Know why? Because I always make my bed...each and every morning. They think I am insane. I think it feels better when I get ready to get back in it at night. Fresher somehow. You would have thought I would have tidied up a bit before taking the pic wouldn't you???
I love my bed.
I really do. It is queen size. It has 4 tall posters and...well....I just love it! It was bought new over 21 years ago. The slats have fallen apart and have been pieced back together. It has been moved hither and yon but...it is still MY bed.
I love to read in bed.
I love to watch TV in bed.
I love to sleep in my bed.
Not any snuggling goes on in my bed unless you count the cats. ~sighs~
I love my electric blanket on my bed. It is one of those that goes on the mattress. I like to turn it on high and get it warmed before I go to bed. You do not have to search for the cats when it is time for bed. They are already right there where the electric blanket has made it nice and cozy.
I have LOTS of pillows. I also have the first quilt that my grandmother ever made for me. I know it was made for me and I am certainly that many prayers were said while it was being made for me.
I used to be afraid of the dark. That is when I learned the secret of the sheet. Even when it is hot, I have to have a sheet on me. See, if you can keep your hand and feet under the sheet, nothing can get you. Not even anything that might crawl out from under the bed.
Don't be rolling your eyes. I am 47 years old and nothing has gotten me when I had that sheet!
This is our routine every morning. I work at making the bed and she works at stopping me from making the bed! She loves my bed too. Gingerbean will take longs naps with me. But if it gets dark, she will hop off my bed and get into her crate.
I guess she loves her bed too.
Wanna know what I miss?
I miss halfway waking up in the night and hearing someone breathing beside me. There is a comfort in that. It is something that can annoy the heck out of you until it is not there. Trust me on this one.

and I know y'alls minds went straight to the gutter when I asked if you knew what I missed in bed! Naughty girls!
