Special Place

My husband and I always had sectional couches

So we could both lie down and watch tv

when we got rid of one, we brought the futon in from the bedroom

later we got another sectional, but the futon remained on the other side of the room

Then I had the brilliant idea to move the futon across from the tv

and bend it out into bed position with the head up at an angle

So we could stretch out and watch tv!

smoke ‘in bed’

eat popcorn in bed

but to my surprise we mostly just lie on there

with the tv off, staring into each other’s eyes

cuddling with the dog

My husband says it was my best idea yet

because this is the stuff memories are made of

So that’s my special place…

it was time to get my photography back to a bit of normalcy anyway 🙂

  3. That’s very sweet, Elaine. Perfect for the challenge too. Very nice:-)

  4. BRAVO!!! my bed is certainly a very special place on a daily basis — sleeping is only a small fraction of what i use my bed for — mostly reading, listening to music, photoshop, am3 blogging, eating sometimes… just faaabulous!! bravo again!!! xoxo

  5. I realised a long time ago that a bed is more than just a sleeping place, and as we spend up to a third of our lives sleeping, or lying down, we invested in a huge thing for comfort and to stop my long legs hanging over the ends! Ha haThat looks a comfy, dosy, cuddly place to me, Elaine. Nicely processed, warm and inviting.Have yourself a super weekend 🙂
