We decided it was time to get a new mattress for our bed as the other one was 15 years old. So off we went mattress testing. How weird is it to lay on one mattress after another in front of other people? Not super relaxing. :-) After testing them at three different stores and all the subsequent discussions over which one to get.. we went with the very first one. How often is that the case? The mattresses won't be delivered for another few weeks, but last weekend we decided that we should get a new down comforter and duvet cover for the new bed. You sure can tell I'm an old hippie! Dayle thinks that this looks like the old "Indian bedspreads" we used in the 60's.
I love the pattern! After I downloaded this photo I noticed there are 2 pine needles on the bed.. that's what happens when your dog sleeps with you. :-) Do you have subdued colors on your bed, or do you go for brights?
My younger sister Denise just got back from a cruise down the coast of Mexico to Cabo San Lucas, Huatulco, Puerto Chappas, Puerto Questzal, Guatemala, San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, through the Panama Canal and then Cartagena, Colombia. She brought this bright colored soap dish for me, isn't she sweet?
Also this neat bottle of Mexican Vanilla.
And she brought each of the boys a hand-woven friendship bracelet and a hand-crocheted little bag/necklace which holds a tiny handmade doll inside. Thank you, Denise! She also got some amazing photos while on her trip.
I had planned to meet Gracie at the pool for a swim today but I am suffering from a cold and did not want to share it with her, plus I don't think it's good to spend an hour in cool water and walk around with wet hair when you're not well. So, it's home for me today. Yes, Gracie has returned from her long stay in California with her sister. I look forward to seeing her soon! I hope you are having a good week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
