It was a bit rainy earlier today. It was overcast when I left for my walk, but it wasn't raining. I had gotten to the half way point, turned around and headed back before it began to sprinkle a little bit. It began raining pretty well there for a bit so I had to walk with my umbrella. Luckily, it was near the end of my walk, and it also stopped before I got home. I only had to use the umbrella for a bit. I got home and had some coffee and then relaxed a bit. I did my workouts, had lunch, and then made another cup of coffee and settled in with my Kindle. I finished The Fireman last night and I started on Sleeping Beauties today.
I had some clothes in my dryer that I had washed yesterday and never got around to taking out. I took those out and put them away and then dried my bed linen. I always wash it on Sunday. I put up the last valence on my bed and now I have a 'canopy' bed. :P It looks pretty cute. I would like to get something to go over the top to make an actual 'top' to it. Here is the bed:
Cool, yes? I like it. I think it looks pretty neat. I have a bed sheet that matches the bed skirt, so I might use it as a topper. I attempted that today, but it didn't look great. I needed more supplies than I had to make it work. I'm thinking of trying again in a few days. I'm thinking I'll take down the valences, get the sheet up correctly and then put the valences back up. I think that would probably work better. The things around the top are a string of Christmas lights that I strung around the frame some years back. They were a pain to put up, so I didn't bother to take them down!
I am sitting under my hair bonnet hair dryer waiting for my hair to dry. After that, I'm going to put the linens back on my bed and get in there with the Kindle. I want to read more of Sleeping Beauties. So far, I haven't read a lot, but I'm hoping to change that later. I just need to do my French lesson via Duolingo and then I'll go get my linens. ^_^
