Onward. And naps are good.

By God, I might be broke and still a little broken hearted, but I sure am comfy. I finally got around to openin' my Santa presents to myself and this pretty much represents the whole deal of what I've been splurgin' on these past few months. (well.. besides that pair of awesome pearl earrings hehehe... just sayin'). But I read a saying once that said something like "pleasure delayed is pleasure denied". And I said Amen. I've learned very well the lesson that I don't know if I'll have tomorrow so I'm gonna try like hell to enjoy today as best I can. Well... within reason... *grin*

And don't you just love that little cup/saucer? It can hold "real food" - or just as easily an icy gin and tonic with lime and some cheese and crackers... Just sayin... multifunctional and I love it. (qvc, of course, a set of 2 for pretty cheap). And then we move on to the totally awesome and biggest indulgence of the new bedding I treated myself to - oh yes kiddies, I treated myself to a big, giant, soft and fluffy feather bed (hey, it was 60% off!!), brand new pillows, some great thread count flannel sheets, on up to the chenille comforter that reminds me of my grandmother (and puhleese - that blue is SO much prettier in person)... it makes me feel like a princess. And now this is my bed and it finally feels like it, hear me? It's been a long time comin' and I am well pleased with it. Because please, let me not forget - I am now 49 and fabulous! I also got myself some yummy delicious shower gels (Philosophy from totally try them - they smell so awesome and pampering but not too sweet or overpowering. An affordable indulgence. *grin* I keep takin' hot and bubbly showers to try the different scents, then climb back in that snugly and comfy bed to read my other boyfriends new book, and it might take a while, but I can't think of a better way to give myself a big giant cozy hug and believe me, I've tried. I think this is as close as I can get.

So here it is.. and it's where I've been most of the weekend. I guess I was just overwhelmed there for a bit and come Monday morning I'll have to pry myself out and deal with real life again, but I can't worry about that till then. It'll all be ok and thank you from the bottom of my heart, my friends, for the warm and comforting things you've said. Every one of you are amazing and kind and your words mean more to me than you can ever know. And I am blessed by every one of them. Amen.

You're up early, just like me. :)
I got up early to put out the other two chairs I've been trying to get rid of, but had to wait until the street was deserted. Not good being out in the 'big harsh' when people are around. *shudder*

I have a white and a green chenille bedspread. Aren't they the best? I got both of mine from EBay a long time ago. But you got pillowcases? Nice.

You already know about the dish, like yours, that Sister B bought me from a thrift store. The one with Cape Cod on it? Yeah, love it.

Aren't feather beds fantastic? I have a feather bed topper and wouldn't trade it for anything. So comfy just to sink into it and make the world go away. xxoo

I love the idea of a feather bed! I also love the idea of gifting unto one's self. You know what you need and I think it's good you remember to give it to yourself.

Oh yes - pampering yourself is the way to go! Sadly my bed is an old, broken down sort of "canoe" (ya know, when turning the mattress or flipping makes no difference anymore?). But I swear, if I have to move next year there will be a new bed for me!

Oh and I'm just guessing here - but I suspect Tony won't mind if you spend some quality time snuggled up with Stephen. ;)


How beautiful! What a great idea and well deserved sanctuary. Snuggle in, feels like a long winter.
