Thankful Thursday

Today's Thankful Thursday is a simple one. I am thankful for my bed. You may think this is silly, but no. In my house the bedroom does not have heat or air conditioning. In winter, we normally have an electric blanket and mattress pad, but this year we didn't get them on before the bitter cold hit. Then we dealt with two polar vortex, plus lots of cold weather and snow in-between. When that happens, my bedroom is like ice! For a good portion of the winter (January through April), I slept on the sofa in the living room. It was small when you add in two cats.

But, this past week I've been able to go back to my bed. I've been able to curl up in my soft bed under lots of blankets and sleep. It has been heaven! There is just something about sleeping in your own bed that makes going to bed that much better.

So today just sleeping in my own bed makes me very thankful. What are you thankful for today?


  1. Wow, no heat in your bedroom? I couldn't do it!!

  2. No heat. Never had it. The room was added on in the early 1980s and they didn't extend the duct work into that room (or the half bath next to it). We chose that room because (at the time) we thought if we had kids, we didn't want them on ground level with a door to the outside. We took it instead. Of course, we usually get the heated mattress pad & electric blanket going, but we didn't this year. It was rough...
