So, Jientje is here. When I invited her to come and visit us, I told her we had a spare room. That was the truth. What I didn’t tell her was that it had neither bed, nor bedding! We keep Amoeba’s many musical instruments in that room. So, the music had to move to the living room, and we needed bed and bedding.
You know we’re about to move, so I didn’t want to go decorating this house, only to have whatever we got not “fit” in our next home. Also, we didn’t want to buy a bedroom suite just to move it across the ocean. We bought an air-bed for Jientje to sleep on. It is not just a little mattress on the floor. This thing inflates to a full sized bed complete with headboard.
Next I needed to “dress” the bed. You all know by now that I am an internet shopper. I went to SHOP.COM and checked out bedding sets. Here in Hawaii we don’t much need heavy comforters. I wanted light, comfortable, lovely sheets and a light blanket to match, and they needed to be attractive enough that no bedspread would be necessary.
I settled on rich, chocolate-colored, satiny-cotton, tuxedo-striped sheets and a matching light-weight knitted cotton blanket. I made up the bed and waited anxiously for Jientje’s verdict. Thankfully, she declared the bed very comfortable and the sheets, “perfect”.
