Can you tell a lot about someone by looking at their nightstand?
Anita (from Mud & Coffee) and I have been talking back and forth on Facebook. We talk about everything. The woman has a gift of encouragement, among other things. But she told me a little story about something she had next to her bed that showed her a little something about herself. And that got me thinking…does what you have on your side of the bed, or on your nightstand really tell a bit about where you are in life? Wait for it…you see it coming, I decided to do a very scientific experiment. Here goes nothing…
I took pictures of my nightstand and the things on the floor next to my side of the bed, I didn’t stage this, clearly!
The stuff on my nightstand says that I try to do way too much in the 90 seconds I have between climbing into bed and falling fast asleep! Alas…it’s true.
Here’s the inside of my night-stand drawer! Again it’s painfully clear that I didn’t straighten up before I snapped these pictures! Today, I’ve solved the missing yellow high-lighters mystery! This drawer is all about reading and comfortable sleeping! I’d say that’s pretty much where I am in life!
Here’s the little container on the floor next to my bed…snugly socks=comfort, exercise =sanity to me…Somerset Maugham book=beautiful words…and the menopause book=whatever… So far I’ve gotta say…this is me Peeps
Oh this reminds me…look at the label inside my desk that I use for a nightstand….it came form Alaska!!! (either the desk or the label!Either way it’s fun!)
Here’s The Husband’s side. (I did not ask his permission, I do however plan on asking his forgiveness!)Very little here because The Husband does not spend time reading, crafting, or high-lighting in bed. He gets up so early that when he hits the sack, he’s asleep before his eyes are all the way closed! He only looks at his weight lifting book on Sunday & Wednesday nights to plan his workouts for the week. (He and I have weightlifting books because Really Ruthie is a personal trainer and she made us get them)
Had to show you my second basket of books…During the holidays when I was home all the time I’m horrified to say all these and MORE were living on top of my night stand! They’re still within reach but I’ve straightened up a bit since then
So my best guess is…you CAN tell a little about someone by what’s on their night-stand! It’s true, I’m a reading-writing-snuggling-always trying to learn something new-the more books the better-kind of girl! (I keep my Bible downstairs, I feel a bit like a heathen not having it on my nightstand, but honestly, I don’t usually read my Bible in bed!)
So, what kinds of things do you have on your night-stand? And do those things tell a little bit about you?
