Doing Things

So Friday I got home from work and found Barb had pulled down the dying pine tree by herself. The sand for the back porch base had been delivered and we had to haul it into the back yard by the wheelbarrowfulls just as we did the paving stones. Next step taken care of (sort of). It'll have to be spread out, smoothed, compacted, and layered before the stones are set in.

Then I had to work Saturday morning. When I got home, we went out to "The Dump," a closeout furniture store, to buy ourselves a new armchair. We ended up buying... an entire living room set. It'll be delivered next Saturday (two years no interest, free delivery... apparently we HAD to spend that much for such a deal). It does mean being a little tight for the next year or so, but hey! Real adult furniture instead of hand-me-downs and the entertainment center we made in our "sure, we can make furniture!" phase.

Then last night I made spaghetti sauce and we had a lovely pasta dinner with bruschetta and salad.

Then I was awarded the Liebster Award by An Eclectic Muse for my writing blog for my first installment of my Rule of Three blogfest story!

Ugh. Slept ALL day. I fell asleep in my clothes, then woke up at about 6:00 a.m. when Dickens wanted breakfast, changed into my nightgown, put on my CPAP, and set the alarm. Somehow turned off the alarm and took off the CPAP without waking up. Kept dreaming about waking up all afternoon. Guess I had a larger sleep deficit than I thought.

Just couldn't make it. :-(

Poor Maggie! :(

Feel better! If you need a nice meal during the week just holler! :) (There will be less ordering of/going out for food for a while, of course...)

It means I will be very very poor for a while, but I think we'll enjoy the hell out of it all! Woot!

what style did you go for?

Style? Well, we got an armchair in a distressed brown microfiber, a reclining couch in a soft cream leather, the coffee table and end tables do match, in a dark wood with stone lay on top (Geez, I don't even know what kind of wood or stone), with drawers, and the entertainment center and connecting bookshelf (which we'll use for CDs and such) are, I think, called "Santa Fe," with slightly lighter wood but a similar stone inlay.

I'd probably call it "southwestern," given an option; don't know what the furniture store calls it. :D

We'll post pictures, of course.

The stone inlay on the tables and the entertainment center (presuming it's actual stone and not faux stone of some kind) is slate. The tables are, I'm pretty sure, pine with a dark finish, and the entertainment center is definitely oak with a light finish.
