November 26, 2019

When we had our infamous garage sale all those weeks ago, Ned and Marta decided that the proceeds would go to buy a new couch.

Yesterday was the day.

Ned and Marta went in to Sacramento over the weekend and found two couches/beds that they liked, but didn't want to buy one until I'd tried it out for sleeping, so Ned and I went in to R.C. Willy to look at the two they liked.

I liked the "firmer" one for look and ease of converting to a guest bed, but it wasn't very comfortable for sleeping but the other one was wonderful.  It was like when the two of us went shopping for my recliner.  As soon as I sat down in it, I knew it was for me.

It is going to change the look of the living room having an L-shaped couch, but I think it's going to be nice.

Fortunately it's not in stock so they won't be able to deliver it to us until the middle of December, which gives Ned two weeks to get all the boxes and stuff out of the living room, now that they have more or less organized the kitchen, and the couch will be here before the Christmas guests arrive.  We may have Jeri, Phil, Tom, Laurel and the girls here overnight one night after Christmas...and believe it or not, Ned has planned for us to be able to host that many people.

He truly is amazing.

I sat there enjoying our new couch while he went upstairs and finalized the sale.  I looked around at the clock display and realized I didn't have a clue what time it was!

When he came downstairs he was laughing.  The garage sale got them $1200 to go toward a couch and this cost $1200.47.  Great planning.

In the afternoon, we watched the movie Bernie, a 2011 movie with Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Matthew McConaughey.  Black is a quiet mortician, beloved by everyone in his small town, who does wonderful things for everybody.  He befriends a bitter widow (MacLaine), who trusts him as the first person in her life that has ever been nice to her.  But when she becomes jealous and controlling, Bernie goes to surprising lengths to separate himself from her.  Good movie, which I recommend.  I didn't realize until the very end that it was based on a true story.

At night I made pesto to go with pasta for the four of us, but for Walt and me I had to celebrate the fact that Dungeness crab season starts this week.

We spent dinner discussing more things that have to be done to organize and re-design the house, all of which sound great.  And we laughed a lot, which I love.  By the time Christmas gets here the guys coming to spend it with us aren't going to recognize the place.


How Ned and I keep from feeding Polly twice!

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
