Here she is at Christmas making her gravy:
The fall last month did nothing but give her a few aches and pains (well first of all it gave her a fright, and an uncomfortable night on the floor and a road rash on her elbow crawling to the cabinet to drag out some blankets to throw over her as she spent the night on the floor!) But she is fine and even more careful than before. Yes, she still lives alone in her house, and no she doesn’t use her walker.
It is going to be quite the test to 1. sell our houses 2. move (meaning finding a house that the three of us can live in together and agree on!!!) and then the daunting task of packing up the stuff and moving. And 3. decorating!!!
Ahhhh who gets to put their stuff where. I mean I do NOT like her couches one single bit:
… but she loves them, why is that… ah yes because they are blue!! (but from the 80’s… at least we took away her 1962 BLUE AND GREEN couch… let me see if I can scan an old picture to show you the color of that…
that's uncle Jess... and look who this is... baby JB...
Baby JB turned 31 last week!!! and this couch was pretty old when he was a baby! ( I always say that that couch would have won top honors in the Ugliest Couch Contest!)
So yes, I like to decorate as to the kind of house it is; our Half Moon Bay house was a white and brick two story, rather like a farm house with knotty pine cabinets. I certainly didn’t decorate it with modern furniture. Our house here in WA is/was a new house, for our new marriage!
I really can’t imagine using these couches in my decorating scheme!
This move may prove harder than I anticipated.
