Robbed Peter - Paid Paul

Lovely evening, nothing on tv,
I had finished up another book,
and then I

Next thing I knew I had swapped tables from
family room and porch.

Done and Done

It will work better for several reasons,
one being that I needed change.
Since it is becoming apparent that a move now
is simply not practical, I am very
antsy and craving change, no,
 I am lusting after change.

So much so that new piles of stuff for sale
are increasing in the garage.
I posted some on a virtual sale via email,
and have already sold most of it. 
I will continue to purge and sell,
purge and sell, 
and if need be another damn garage sale.
Pals will join me so they
 are always a wee bit fun. 

I've added another third more since I took this last week.

Almost time for flannel, soups and stews.
Pumpkins are already out.
I come back alive in the fall.

I roamed Ikea with a dear friend for 
FOUR hours on Saturday.
We did sit in the dining area 
for over an hour
but still...
We bought some wonderful live plants 
and assorted everything else, and we chatted
and wandered to and fro ,
and ignored the floor arrows,
and it was lovely.

On another up note:
Over the weekend, 
I had a dear friend 
return back into my life.

what joy!

Not So Easy Come, Easy Go

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, 
I jumped.
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.
