Happy Thoughts—Day 4



My bed. Oh, how I love thee! Here it is shown in all its glory—rumpled, full of mismatched blankets, quilts, and puffy pillows, still warm from us sleeping in it. Yes, mismatched and rather frumpy, but that's the price you pay for living with animals (Pete included—just kidding, ha ha). There's nothing like climbing into my bed after a long, tiring day, and getting all snuggly under the quilts, Pete generating heat next to me and the doggies plopped on top, snoring and groaning in delight. And to have the opportunity to linger on a weekend morning, waking up from the brightening light (and not an alarm), talking with Pete and laughing and petting the dogs, rubbing sleep from our eyes and cherishing that last little bit of relaxation. And being Monday morning, I'm really, really missing it right now. Ahhh, there's nothing like it!

that is a great truth isn't it? that there is no bed like our own bed? as much as I traveled for my job - there was nothing like coming back to my bed.

i climbed into my son's bed this morning after i got him into the shower, just to feel his warmth. so sweet. then i had to force myself to get out and go for a run. beds are tempting, luring us to do nothing sometimes. and that is good. :) i love your headboard!

Hey, Chris, thanks for including The Animal Store on your blog roll. Our puppy, Hazel, is not quite ready to join the family bed(s) yet, since she still chews on everything, but she does cozy up on the couch and helps keep us warm.
