a "new" couch...

the past few months i've been half-heatedly looking for a replacement for our chaise. we inherited it from a friend, who had it probably 4 years..in total at least a decade old. there were rips in the fabric on the cushion so we had to sit on a blanket to avoid further tearing, it was getting stinky & not the most comfortable to sleep on those nites.

i look on craigs list. found a nice looking one, but the seller never contacted back. then i saw one this week & emailed. received contact back! i had to wait for N to get home to look at the picture, so i couldn't commit to seeing it that nite. someone else was scheduled to look at it so i figured it would be there if it was. next morning i had an email in my inbox saying she/he never came over and if i wanted to see it, i could. arrangements were made & off we went. turned out to be super close. we sat on it, nodded & paid for it. included in their firm price was delivery, which we needed. N helped the guy load it in his truck & back we home we headed. the seller left, i rearranged the living room, then off we went to dump the old chaise. fortunately there is room at our place for you to do that.

long story short...there are some stains, but that's ok. doesn't smell too bad...just like the previous owners so that will go away & it's comfy to lay on! the total cost.. $75

yet another angle...we're liking it

tree in corner..one nite i'll get a shot of the lights..tonite it was pissing me off. the lights are orange on top, white & purple around the bottom. found out 3 white strands didn't work this year so we substitute our halloween lights. it reminds me a a tequila sunrise or the mamba candy.

Tim is so cute looking in these photos, and so happy! His offspring, Shimmer, got a home a couple weeks ago. Black Pearl and Toby, the mom and one of her kittens, from same location Tim came from, hopefully are going to a home together the 21st. Tim looks soooo happy! That was the best three hour vacation! I keep telling people about your town, and most say they've been there or know.

he's getting fat! in our new place he'll have room to run and we're starting to exercise him too. he loves to chase string so it's pretty easy :)
that big plant at the beach is an electric plant i found out owned by Edison. maybe you can come down again sometime..you've visited longer then my mom has since we've been here :)
