I have spent the last few years on a major purge,
so adding anything new into the house
seemed to be, well, just wrong.
I had watched this bamboo rug for several years and when
I saw it at a great price several weeks ago,
It helped that it was 3 am and I couldn't sleep.
I have a lot of that honey or maple color
in the western areas of the room so this "pulled" it
to the other end.
Although several hundred things have departed
my abode, I'm still debating the wisdom of this addition.
DD and friends have given a thumbs up,
but Howie does not approve.
It makes noise when he walks on it,
so he won't. He does this shuffle to the left
that is adorable.
It is easy for me to let the old go,
hard to let the new in.
If I had a shrink,
they might say, hmmmm
expand on that.
