A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Casper...It's White but Not the Friendly Ghost

It's day 69 for our Casper Mattress, and it's the kind you order online and it's at your door in a box in a couple of days. No mattress shopping for us this time around because ordering this way is very easy. It's another industry "disrupter". To tell you the truth, though, it all sounds good, and well, easy, until you stop and think, what the heck our we thinking? Don't we have to "check it out in person?" Jump on it? Get on and off several times and see how we like the "firmness?" Plus sleep is important, right?

So here we are on this 100 day "try-out" period which is all the rage with these type of mattresses. I guess the industry figures if you can muster 99 nights in without any problems, it's a go for the longer "sleep" haul. Now, of course, there is no way that mattress will go back into the jack-in-the-box box, even if we get to day 100 and don't like it. But, right now, at day 69, it's been great. Actually, pleasantly surprised, though there was a kind of 'break in' period for about a week or so. I must admit I was "hedging" a bit before ordering it, but my husband convinced me to go this route, and now I'm thankful I heeded the notion and ordered one 71 days ago. Here's wishing a Good Night sleep to all!

BSoleille! The bright side of a good night sleep!

We debated trying one also, but ended up at Mattress Warehouse.
