Sleep Better Mr. C...
Last year when we stayed with our friend Sandy in Bakersfield to help her when she shattered her shoulder, we slept in her king bed and she slept in her spare twin bed. Wow! When you get a really good night's sleep you start to think you might need a new mattress at home. Sandy's bed was heaven! As Mr. C the Engineer Extraordinaire always does he began his research. We visited the custom mattress shop that created her bed. We learned a lot. We visited that same store several more times, including a trip to let Sandy order a set up for her twin bed.
Well sadly that shop was not able to ship to us in Northern California. Mr. C and I even stayed at a particular hotel to test out their bed which was said to be of the same technology as Sandy's. Well...lots more research by Mr. C and the decision was made. We began 2017 with a delivery. Five very heavy boxes containing our new very expensive new technology mattress.
Here is Mr. C making certain everything is in perfect order...from the ground up. And it was the perfect time to vacuum up very mature dust bunnies.
Lots of heavy lifting of each box up the stairs and voila here we have successfully layered our new mattress and are preparing the cover that holds them all together. Please ignore the green cups as I was merely covering the large screw that could rip things. Mr. C took off the long posts at the foot of the bed to ease our job.
Latex foam at its finest makes for an extremely comfortable bed that supports backs and a very good night's sleep. Hopefully Mr. C can no longer be the "Princess and the Pea".
As I am typing this post we are having a deluge of rain. Thank goodness Mr. C already completed his new improved gutter project. Yes, another well engineered better than new system. Now he just may have to build an Ark. Maybe Mark Harmon could come over and they could build it together in my basement?!! Oh Drat! I don't have a basement.
Fabulous February is here and we better not blink or it will be gone all too quickly like January was. What is your favorite thing about February? Mine is that it brings me closer to Spring.
Happy Hearts and Creative Bliss My Friends. I am so very grateful for each of you and your gifts of encouraging comments. Thank You.

Mr. C looks quite comfortable testing out the new mattress. We have a foam mattress too and love it. Ours is about ten years old and not showing the least sign of wear and tear.ReplyDelete
I'm so intrigued by your bed!! I hope you and Mr. C are able to get a good night's sleep every night!! I chuckled at your comment about Mark Harmon coming over to help build an ark!! He is good at building boats in basements :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!! Big hugs :)ReplyDelete

Hi Sherry, wow what a wonderful new bed. It looks to be so comfy and perfect for back and neck alignment. I know you are going to enjoy this. Glad you are getting rain but sounds like you went from one extreme in weather to another.ReplyDelete
Yes, January flew by and February will most likely too. This happens to be one of my favorite months being I celebrate a birthday and it was my dad's birthday too. Of course there's Valentine's Day this month as well. Love and Birthdays, a fun combination.
Enjoy a nice weekend and Happy February my friend. xoxo
Happy snoozing Sherry! We finally got a king bed a few years ago. What a big difference and a great night's sleep. No more elbow or knee jabs.ReplyDelete
very interesting to see the mattress is made up of layers of foam, not seen these before. I need a new one have a big dip where my botttom goes! Maybe just as well you do not have a basement with all the rain as it might flood.ReplyDelete
That's an impressive bed!ReplyDelete
I would love to know more about the bed as well. I am long overdue for a new mattress, and have a board between the mattress and box spring. It will be sometime before I can replace it (disabled income) but I think it could help my pain in sleeping since my stroke! I hope it made a difference for Mr. C. !!!ReplyDelete
Plenty of work, but ahhh... rest!ReplyDelete
We have a king size bed we bought a year and a half ago and we love it. Ours is from a Southern CA store. They shipped it to us and it has been a great mattress! https://www.brentwoodhome.com/pages/mattress-collections?gclid=CKTr4IXb9tECFRu2wAodk54NtwReplyDelete
OH this sounds like the ever best bed you could dream of, dear Sherry. Congratulations with your buy, after all the checking and testing, I wish you many years of wonderful sleeps, on these madrasses .ReplyDelete
And we will try not to blink dear, January surely was fast gone !! Wishing you a lovely weekend, raining or not, stay inside and enjoy the cozyness !! Xoxo
Looks like a comfy bed Sherry! That is amazing that it was delivered in all those boxes, we need a new mattress too! Is it a king size. Stay safe and I hope the rain quits soon.ReplyDelete
Fascinated by your new mattress coming in 5 big boxes! Looks like several layers, though, so that must explain it. So happy you and Mr. C found the perfect mattress after all the research! Love your comment about the mature dust bunnies :) Happy February! I love this month - nice weather and lots of blooms! xo JaneReplyDelete
I need a new bed so maybe Mr C can come install one for me. He's so good at putting things together! I bet he would even find some mature dust bunnies under my bed, too. LOLReplyDelete
Good luck with your new bed! And your newly engineered gutter system! I hope the rain stops soon. I enjoyed your post very much! And I hope you can enjoy your day, rain or not! XOReplyDelete
oh there's nothing like a new mattress. we have a sleep number bed and just Love it!ReplyDelete
Were having rain too now, best thing about Feb. is the snow is finally starting to melt.
Sleep is so important. This looks great. Hope you are both happy counting sheep!ReplyDelete
I bought a new bed a few months ago and it is so nice to get a nice sleep. Enjoy!!! Hugs, lJReplyDelete
It was so much fun playing catch up on your blog. I so need a new bed but will have to wait till I put this home up for sale and move. I love your adventurous train ride. How much fun. Dinty Moore stew wow. I cracked up over the can opener. Then I went back to your post about moving. Your home is gorgeous. You must hate to leave it. But its time just like it is for me.ReplyDelete
I so love your posts and enjoy everything you write.
Ooh! I do hope you enjoy your new bed. There is nothing quite like a good night's sleep. :)ReplyDelete
Hearts are one of my favorite shapes, so I love February for Valentine's Day (though my hubby and I do not generally celebrate it.)
I am sending you dry wishes! (And can just picture Mr. C. and Mark Harmon building an ark in the imaginary basement.)
It's always so interesting to come here and read about what happens when Mr. C. takes a notion - hope this is the cure!ReplyDelete
