New Bedroom

Sunday, April 15, 2007


Our waterbed broke.

It doesn't create the flood you'd expect. Instead, it's sort of a slow seepage and in fact it might have started leaking any time during the week because I didn't realize it until I went to change the sheets on the weekend. They were shockingly damp around the underneath edges and I was busy trying to compute what was going on. It just didn't make sense. Until I realized the sheets were wet all the way around.

The timing couldn't have been much worse. Hans was due to leave in 3 days for 3 1/2 weeks in California.

To make a 3 1/2 week long story short, we now have a new bedroom!! Today, Hans hung picture frames over our new bed. We have no pictures in them. FD is sending us some photos of the body art she's done over the last couple of years. We'll pick our favourites and insert them into the hanging frames. Should look great!

I've been busy looking for other accents to put into the room. Now that we've gone to light wood to brighten up the room, I find we need dark accents or the room seems to just float there -not grounded anywhere. With the new black accents on the walls and here and there in corners, it all looks great. I'll post pictures.
