All week I worried whether I had made the right decision. By the time the delivery truck arrived today, I had forgotten what the set even looked like. I just bought the sofa and love seat. I didn't like the coffee table they had with it, and didn't have time to look around for more before they closed. We will buy those later.
I was tired of not having living room furniture...so I did it.
I was actually pleased with it once they put it into the living room. I think I got a good deal on them, and that makes them even better.
Now I have to get drapes for the windows and a coffee table. Even without those things, it actually looks like an inviting living space.
They aren't in their final resting places, but for now until I have time to move things around and try different arrangements, this is where they will be. And yes, the fire place has papers in it. It is a gas fire place and has never been hooked up or turned on. I hope this winter we can put a gas tank out there and use it some.
Speaking of something warm and comforting:
How about a soothing bowl of Lentil Soup?
Yum! I love all things soup! This is a great recipe. Quick and easy with only a few ingredients.
Add a little cornbread to it and it is a great, filling supper.
For dessert, how about a slice of just out of the oven,
Banana Walnut Bread. Yummy!
Yes, I know there is this whole needing to diet and lose weight thing, but I had some banana's that were going bad and I needed to do something with them so they wouldn't be wasted. I happened to have a bag of walnuts and bam, Banana Walnut Bread!
I was pulling it out of the oven when they came to deliver the furniture, so I sent some home with the two nice gentlemen. They both commented about how good the house smelled, so I couldn't not offer them any. Besides, I don't need to eat the whole loaf! I plan to send some to work with Andrew...
