Sleeping Comfy

I may have my sleeping figured out.

There were all manner of beds and futons I could have loaded in my truck and taken with me from my large house. We had several guest bedrooms all with beds. I just focused on getting all my tools and electronics and I guess never gave sleeping much thought.

The cabin has a loft, but I wanted to be able to sleep with my doggies, so the loft is out. I could put a bed or futon in the main room of the cabin, but I like the current layout. There was a futon mattress already up in the loft which seemed perfect at first, but turned out to be too unwieldy to setup and take down. It kept falling over and scaring poor Zoey.

So what I decided on for now is a twin sized air mattress with my big-and-tall Coleman sleeping bag on top of it, which fits the mattress perfectly. Right now it is working out perfectly and all my doggies have taken to it. They like it because everyone fits inside snug once I zip it up, and they can come and go during the night if they need to, as long as they go on the side opposite Zoey.

When I was young, all I could think about was that big fancy house. And when I had the house, all I could think about was getting out of the house and pitching my sleeping bag under the stars.

The spot where I flop my sleeping bag down is next to the cabin's main window, and sometimes during the night I randomly open my eyes to see the big dipper filling the window. This area is so remote that at night it's breathtaking to look at the sky with dark adjusted eyes.

Lately we've been sleeping like babies in a proper dog pile.
