The pet babies are both asleep. Ivy is sprawled across the couch and Charlie is of course next to me. What did we do without this puffy recliner chair, me and the Charlie boy?
I guess it’s a blessing I sprained my ankle the day they delivered the wrong furniture and I had to go back to the furniture store.
They had to push me around in a wheelchair they luckily had in the store, and I didn’t feel much like choosing recliners. But I was determined to get one that day because I was in such pain.
So I chose one of the first ones I saw that I could bear to look at. Less “puffy” than most of them. And I bought that one.
It helps both my back and my neck. And if I’d gone with the first one that didn’t get delivered, it would have been pretty but not helped my body so much.
And Charlie just adores this chair.
So from what I understand in the comments yesterday, I have missed several seasons of “Vera” because it isn’t on Acorn TV. Well shoot. Now do I have to sign up for Brit Box to see the seasons I missed? What malarkey.
Oh well. Guess it’s still cheaper than cable TV and I get to watch shows I truly enjoy!
I didn’t go out all weekend. Stayed in and nested. Enjoyed the electric fireplace and the peace and quiet.
When my oldest daughter came to pick up Marley week before last she’d never been here before. She looked around and said: “It’s cozy.”
Highest form of praise for me.
I wanted Marley to come over Saturday. I had the ingredients for convection oven s’mores and hot chocolate, but she was going to some kind of professional game with her dad.
Marley is somewhat of a tomboy. She said a girl at her school said of her: “Oh, is she the girl with the raspy voice who sounds like a boy?”
She does have kind of a raspy voice. She doesn’t seem to care about fashion like her mother did at that age. She enjoys sports. And the things she’s writing on her blog are so cute and funny.
She will take a photo of a leaf or a branch and put on there, because she loves nature. That’s Grammy’s girl!
Oh, what did I do without this child? I have missed out on so much but am so grateful to have her in my life now. I try not to dwell on what I’ve missed or I sit in a puddle of tears.
Why is it when you call your pets’ names to get them to look at you so you can take their picture, they refuse to look at you? Stubborn as children.
