Fabulawesomness and Gloriosity

2017_06_23The weather we'd been waiting for has arrived. There is something so spectacular about this area when this weather hits that it sort of leaves me without words, at least real ones. It's as if the stifling gray cloud cover has finally been ripped back to reveal a scorching blue sky.

That happened here yesterday. Today it is finally heating up as well and tomorrow promises to hit 28C. We were out in it so you may wonder why today's image is a bed. Let me explain.

We bought an Endy memory-foam mattress the first week of December. Time flies and that means we have been sleeping on it for a half year. We'd recommend the product to anyone. It's a marked improvement over a traditional type of mattress. I'm sure it helped in Jay's recovery from heart surgery during those first few weeks when he was confined to sleeping only on his back.

Today, we figured we could rotate it. This mattress cannot be flipped as it has a cooling gel top. The company, however, does suggest that it be turned every six months. We did that today because it was such a perfect day to dry the bedding under the rays of the strong sun.
