Around Town Finds

Some of you know that I love to
 find clouds that look like animals or sometimes,
 a Jet flying into a tornado.

Yes, this is an actual street name.
Oh, the fun I'd have if this was our street name!

This....well, I'd like to understand.


Yesterday morning,
 Tom and I were drinking our coffees in bed, while reading.
 Lucy was sleeping in between us. 
The mornings are getting 
really cold over here (26 degrees burr).
It was a cozy, warm and start to our day.

Until, I spilled my hot coffee on Lucy, who jumped up and
 looked at me like, WHAT?
My coffee cup was totally
 upside down and empty.

Tom and I both jumped out of the warm but wet bed.
We flew into action.

Tom gave Lucy a bath.
I stripped the whole bed.

I knew it was going to be a all day long,
 process of cleaning up this mess.

Mattress pad was washed first.
I took off the duvet cover and washed the down comforter.
The sheets. pillow cases and duvet
 were next to be washed.

Then all were dried!
This was just step one!

Have you ever fought with a mattress pad?
You think one corner is on and it pops off?
This went on for awhile.
My next fight was the
 fitted bottom sheet. 
Sweat was running down my face!

But the biggest battle was still to come.
Getting the duvet back on the comforter!
It was about 4:00 PM when I finished
 making our bed.

There is something special about getting into a freshly clean bed. 
I appreciate my bed and the smell of 
clean sheets,
 mattress pad,
 duvet cover
 down comforter, 
pillow cases
and dog.


"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
Romans 8:28


  1. Loved this! You made me chuckle. So glad nobody got burned!

  2. Too funny- well unless you had to do all that work I suppose!

  3. Oh the poor baby! Bet it scared her, for sure. I had to laugh at the duvet/comforter battle.

    Those are some cold temps, yes.

    I see twin sis commented above. I'm glad she didn't mention how someone spilled a half-cup of coffee on her carseat on a recent trip. :(

  4. This is why I never eat or drink in bed. Oh my, two seconds of an accident led up to a whole day of work. But at least you got a clean sweet-smelling bed out of it.

  5. Yes, I love the smell and feel of fresh sheets. I don't drink coffee in bed and Beau isn't allowed on the bed anymore.
    I think we may be safe! :D Yes, pray for France.

  6. Oh, no! Having a major spill in bed is not fun! Glad you all survived, Christine. I love that after it was all cleaned up and put back together you could be thankful for your clean beddings. :) Praying for France and our world in general. Oh, how we need God! xo

  7. Are you allowed to have coffee in bed any more? :)

  8. Peacefulness to chaos in a matter of seconds . . .

  9. I've done this with our sofa slip cover. Oy! And some day I would love to live on a street that has a name instead of a number. :)

  10. Chicken dinner road. I loved it!
    Have a wonderful week!

  11. OMG Christine, this sounds like something that would happen at my home! Putting a duvet cover on used to be , so hard, and then I discovered a way, I pin the conner of the duvet to the wrong side cover, then just flip it right side out! I used to battle for hours to get it right.
    Having coffee in bed and reading sounds wonderful, especially on cold days! Thank you for your encouragement, I am coming along slowing, still having some blurring, but so thankful I can read without the specks!

  12. Oh my! What a rude awakening for Lucy! I have a fitted cover that goes over the mattress with a zipper for dust mites and that is sure a pain to get back on also! Nancy

  13. Oh my! What a rude awakening for Lucy! I have a fitted cover that goes over the mattress with a zipper for dust mites and that is sure a pain to get back on also! Nancy

  14. Hey, we drink our morning coffee in bed too. So far no scalding the cats, thankfully. What a big job to get that all cleaned up. Of course the reward was that delicious feeling of climbing into a sweet, clean bed.

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend and no coffee spills.
