Did you realize there are no standard sizes for sheets? Especially fitted sheets and with the newer mattresses, sheets are being constructed with deep corners to accomodate the high mattress. We have memory foam mattresses on all our beds and they are not as thick as the newer mattresses thus making the sheet corners sloppy. I’m not a very good sleeper and just about anything disrupts my sleep and that includes a big wad of bottom sheet in the middle of my bed. Ugh! Today I put new sheets on both beds upstairs and hope they will be OK. They have elastic all the way around the fitted sheet but I can still see that they are loose. I also bought 100% cotton sheets so that maybe I could wash them in hot water to shrink them a bit. These doggie sheets are pretty cute, aren’t they? I move from one bed to the other on many nights when I don’t sleep well so I’ll be trying these out soon.
And now about the geraniums – I learned from Connie this year. I have never been very successful keeping my geraniums over the winter but Connie says the secret is in cutting them back a couple of times which I always hate to do because about the time they should be trimmed, they’re just beginning to look good again. But I followed Connie’s lead this winter and it’s the answer to nice geraniums in March. They like the south exposure in the piano room and Connie also said to start feeding them about the middle of February which I did and you can see how I’ve been rewarded! I have never been successful in pulling the plant up in the fall and hanging it in the basement. No luck at all.
Marty has found my chair. Isn’t he just about the cutest dog you’ve ever seen? I think so but that curly hair won’t be so fun when he runs through the grove and gets burrs in it. I took all 4 dogs in the van this morning to run a couple errands and everybody behaved well. They were all bored and it was just easier to open the van door and tell them all to jump in rather than sort everybody out in a kennel.
Connie, Roy and Hope made it to Sanibel Island where it is sunny and 80 degrees. We have a blizzard forecast for tomorrow. Message for Launa: I love your newsy comments and even though I don’t reply to you in “person”, please know that I love hearing about your granddogs and would like a “starter info pack” for NASCAR. I just don’t know anything about it and after basketball, I’ll need something to watch. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks everyone who bothers to comment – Becky says I should add a “like” button.
