This weeks Everyday Matters challenge was to draw our bed. So this is my bed. My daughter said…”It’s messy. Mom, you’ve got to start making your bed!” How funny to hear that from her. My mom always taught me to make my bed…but as you can see that was one of those things that I never implemented into my life. Once in a while I get on a kick to keep our room cleaned up and keep the bed made, but it usually just gets messy after a while. At least it isn’t as bad as it used to be. I used to keep everything under my bed when I was a kid. And I am proud to say that I have nothing under there now. Six years ago we decided to give up our mattress on the floor for a new bed. We used our tax return to buy a new bed and mattress. It is one of the best investments we have ever made. Our bed is so comfortable and I love to crawl into it after a long day and curl up under all our covers. In this drawing, I included Sam’s guitar in the corner, our various candles…and I tried to give the effect of the Rope light on the floor at the head of our bed, which gives a soft glow to our ugly flowery wallpaper which is on the agenda to strip down one of these days.
