Our New Couch

Hello my friends!
I realized with all of the Christmas festivities
and goings on, that I neglected to show you
our new couch.
It's actually part couch,
part lounge chair.
The best thing about it, is we can
change the lounge part to the other side
because there is a movable ottoman underneath it.

We chose a neutral off white color,
with a herringbone pattern.

The blue pillows also came with the deal.

I so love the blue and off whites
for a Winter look!
Including my blue striped linsey woolsey blanket.

I added this crocheted afghan that my sister
bought me 20 years ago as a Christmas present.

We have had this couch for about 3 months.
The kitties still avoid it.
I added the afghan thinking the kitties would
warm up to the couch.
Ace will lay on the afghan sometimes.
He jumps from the floor, to the pillows,
then to the couch,
It is so funny to watch.

Here he is sleeping on the afghan.
Too cute!

Last night I drove home from work
in freezing rain.
Winter is finally here in Michigan.

I have also been dealing with some pain issues.
Constant pain up and down my left leg.
It works itself out by midday,
but in the early hours of the morning....
it's back with a vengeance.
Going to the doctor before work today.
Wish me luck.

Winter Blessings To All!


  1. hoping the pain can be resolved quickly.

    1. Well since we feel like they are our kids...we want them to feel like it is theirs too. :-) I have sciatica nerve pain. Not fun. :-( Janice

  2. Hi Janice,
    The couch is really pretty with the blue accents and your kitty looks so cozy snuggled in the afghan! So sorry to hear about your pain issues and hope the Dr can come up with a diagnosis and solution!! We actually had ICE on the sidewalk here today and it was 30 degrees!! Not your usual AZ weather in my area!!! Now the sun is out and it will be 57 later so am happy for that!! Hope you are staying warm!!
