the best of all possible beds
i must take a moment to exclaim upon the new bed that J has installed in the now-liveable but not yet complete master suite.
his house has a walk-up attic space which had a bathroom, finished walls and ceiling, and plywood subfloor when he moved in. the previous owner had been using this as her master suite, complete with nails and dirt and splinters on the plywood subfloor. a sort of janky sound system had been installed-- two bookshelf speakers shoved into unfinished holes in the ceiling and a big plastic volume knob on the wall. and there are "i don't want to know" drips down one wall.
well, the big project up there was the floor. and it is beautiful. J installed (himself!) a gorgeous hardwood floor. i helped a little during the finishing stage. after the floor was ready he was ready to start using it as his bedroom.
the last time i was up there, we went to a furniture store and he showed me the bed he'd chosen (padded leather headboard, nice), and i helped him decide on a new mattress.
the bed and mattress have since been delivered and he has outfitted it with all new linens, pillows, and etc.
you know those nice hotels that have the really, really, really comfortable beds? the kind of bed you sort of sink into, but still it supports you perfectly?
that's what this bed is like. it's the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house. with the light wood floor, pale walls, and sun coming in through the dormer windows, the upstairs is a most pleasant space. i worked there on friday, and it just became Command Central. we had both kitteh and puppeh up there while we surfed the web on wireless laptops and read and stuff.
my bed seems all small and hard and mean now :(
