In bed – En la cama

The living room is not the only room in our house to have seen some changes recently. The bedroom is also looking different these days. Here it was back in August.

La sala no es el único cuarto de cambiar en nuestra casa recientemente. Nuestro dormitorio ha cambiado también. Aquí hay una foto de agosto.

The Bedroom 2016

This is what it looks like with a new quilt. I bought a king sized quilt because I feel like the queen sized ones do not come up high enough for me when I pull then down to cover the foot of the bed. This one is enormous, and is probably too big for our bed, but I love the I can pull the covers over my head while they are still tucked in down below. However, just the quilt was a little plain.

Y ahora cómo se ve con una nueva colcha. Compré una colcha para una cama extra grande o tamaño King en inglés porque me parece que las para las camas de tamaño Queen no me alcanzan cuando cubren el pie de la cama. Esta es enorme y probablemente es demasiada grande para nuestra cama, pero me encanta poder arroparme completamente aun cuando está metido bajo el colchón. Sin embargo, el edredón solo era un poco sencillo.

So I added the throw pillow that I made for Douglas for our second anniversary.

Añadí una almohadita que le hice para Douglas por nuestro segundo aniversario de matrimonio.

Then, I added a throw and threw a cat in for good measure. Everything looks better with a cat, no?

Después agregué otra manta y un gato, para dar más de la medida. Todo se ve mejor con un gato, ¿no es verdad?

All of this took place on a Saturday after Douglas and I had to work all morning. We were both tired, and after I called him in to get his opinion on the new quilt, we both ended up taking a nap.

Todo esto ocurrió un sábado después de que Douglas y yo tuvimos que trabajar toda la mañana. Estábamos agotados y después de que lo llamé para saber qué pensaba el de la nueva adición del cuarto, los dos nos quedamos dormidos encima de la nueva colcha.

One cat came in right away and the other one joined us shortly thereafter.

Un gato llegó inmediatamente y el otro se nos unió poco después.

The poor dog was abandoned on the floor because she cannot get up on the bed on her own. She let me know that I was a horrible person when I finally did get up and notice her down there. Can you see the reproach in her eye?

La pobre Kahlua estaba abandonada en el piso porque ella no puede subir a la cama solita. Ella me dejó saber que yo era una persona horrible cuando por fin me levanté y la vi allí abajo. ¿Se puede ver el reproche en su ojo?

Even in its tousled state that evening, the new quilt was beautiful. I feel like I should take more pictures of my house at night. It has a very different feel than during the day.

Aún en la condición desarreglada en que se encontraba esa noche, la nueva colcha era bonita. Me parece que debería sacar más fotos por la noche porque la casa tiene un ambiente muy diferente después de que se pone el sol.

Bed at night

I am loving the new quilt, but in reality, we do not get to see it very often. We keep the bed covered with a sheet because the animals like to sleep on the bed and the sheet is much easier to wash than the quilts. Just keeping it real people.

Me encanta el nuevo enredón, pero en realidad, no lo vemos a menudo. Mantenemos la cama cubierta con una sábana porque a los animales les gusta dormir en la cama y la sábana es más fácil de lavar que las mantas. ¡Para que no haya secretos entre nosotros!

I am a teacher, traveler, artist, writer, homemaker and a whole lot more. In January 2009, I bought the Cape of Dreams. It was the second house that I had ever owned, but it was the first that I bought by myself. I now live in the house with my husband Douglas, our dog Kahlua, and Crème de Menthe, the cat. Because, what life is complete without a little Kahlua and Cream? I love arts and crafts of all kinds, and I refinish furniture as well. We are slowly redoing our entire house.

  1. beautiful new quilt! i really love it. the sheet is a brilliant idea. maybe i’ll try that. bonkers always sleeps on the bed during the day and leaves a mess of black fur. your house looks wonderful during the day and at night! i’m sure you’re busy decorating for halloween!

      Thanks! I have to keep a sheet on all the places that Ponche loves to sleep because his fur mats down into the fabric like it is part of it and is hellish to try to remove. I am not sure if it is because he does not bathe himself as assiduously as Creme does. I do not have the same problem with her fur. Kahlua also leaves a mess behind, so sheet on the bed is a must. I need to get busy with my Halloween decorations. So far, I only have one hanging up.

    The quilt looks great! I love the way Ponche lays with his legs stuck out behind him. And look at Crème giving him kisses! They must be pals by now. I like how my house looks at night, too, but other than at Christmas I seldom think about photographing it.
