D Day

New Couch
Not an invasion exactly, but rather a plethora of deliveries.  After sleeping on a really good mattress in Spain we decided that it was time to get ourselves a new one.  The mattress industry says to replace your mattress every 8 years, well ours is around 14 so it's definitely time for a new one.
To go with the new mattress I ordered new bedding, in the picture it looks maroon and yellow, it's actually burgundy and gold.  The mattress was delivered on Tuesday, the bedding came today.  Miss Kitty was sure the new mattress was for her and has slept on it the last 2 nights.  When the bedding got here today we pulled the old mattress off and slid the new one in and added the new bedding, looks pretty good, very autumnal.

Old Couch
The new couch came shortly after the bedding.  I had bought a new couch early last year, but it was a disaster from the word go.  Done in a green microsuede it showed everything that got on it, and we eat lunch on it so it was a mess.  Also the cushions couldn't be turned over and I hated the too wide arms.  Mac says he hated it from the moment I bought it and wondered why I had, well, the color was right, but in the end that just wasn't enough.
So the new one is a dark brown chenille with reversible cushions.  It's very comfortable.
Had a call from Lowe''s and the new washer is to be delivered between 2:30 and 4:30 this afternoon, so tomorrow will be an all day laundry day.
The old couch, mattress and washer are being picked up Saturday, then I can put the house back together.
For a person who hates shopping I've done a bit lately, but I think I'll put myself on purchase probation.


  1. A good bed is a necessity. I find it rather soothing to make up a bed with fresh linens, fluffy blankets, a bright quilt--of course the cats think I've done it all just for them.

  2. Some lovely purchases there. I desperately need a new bed, we both wake up with a bad back just about every morning, it's just getting round to looking for one.

  3. Wow!!
    Well, sometimes we need to freshen up things and doesn't it feel good!
    You guys will be all cozy for the best season of all :)
    Happy Fall!


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
