When I was a little girl ..
my mom would make her bed every Sunday with her special Chenille spread.
I was not to sit on it. . .
no babies bottoms were changed directly on it. .
and though we lived on a farm. .
with four boys. .
and one. .
little girl ..
the spread remained clean and free of tears and missing chenille.
Now the spring has sprung. . .
I had a longing to see it once more. ..
and so the double bed spread ..
is spread on the queen sized bed. .
stretching as far as it can. .
and meeting the white bed skirt that sweeps the floor.
I read the instructions. . .
all over again. .
I may not use flake soap. ..
but Chenille does enjoy a good windy day.
Speaking of babies bottoms. . .
guess what today is?
I'm off and running.
