A bed! - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
A bed!
I have a bed!

Well, I've always had the bed, but until today it was in a million pieces all over the bedroom. I've been waiting to put it together until after I got my new windows - and today they were installed!

They're very nice. I used Gulf Coast Windows, and I was very happy with them. I got exactly what I ordered, on time, for the price they originally quoted me. The installers even cleaned up after themselves when they were done.

I'm not sure who's happier about the windows - me or the cat. I suspect she never realized I had windows before, because I've always kept them all covered with shades in an attempt to keep the heat down. But today she could actually see out of them, and she's spent most of the day perched on one windowsill or another, looking out at the world.

Anyway, now that they're in, I spent the afternoon assembling and filling the waterbed. It's going to be so nice to sleep on it again, for the first time since I moved - in April!

Getting the bed assembled required a trip to Home Depot and a trip to Bering's. While I was at Bering's, I found the coolest gadget: SleekStor Collapsible Dry Measuring Cups. They fold totally flat to store, and pop open to use. I've needed a good set of dry measuring cups for a long time, but I didn't have a space for them. These fit easily in my "misc utensils" drawer, although they came with a hook, and I may eventually hang them somewhere.

Plus, they're yellow, so they match my kitchen. And that's what's really important, right?

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

That is quite a beautiful bed. I envy it.

I love it. It's hard to tell in the picture, but it's cherry (wood) and black. If you weren't so far away, I'd pass it on to you - I'm replacing it soon.

Speaking of being far away - I would really love to come visit you in Houston...maybe after the new year when I get my raise and bonus...we can hang out for a weekend. I'll be thinner then too and maybe won't be forced to buy a second seat on the airplane. Interested?

Sure! That would be wonderful! I've got plenty of crash space these days. :)

I actually couldn't sleep in mine last night - I overfilled it, and couldn't get comfortable. So I'm going to take out some water and try again tonight. :)
