Ry Girl made cookies with me this weekend. She caught on right away.
And, TADA!!! The couch… the Old Texas, stamped leather, are you kidding me couch and chair. Don’t you think it looks like a saddle? Who in a million years would have bough this couch except for me? It’s so awesome. Actually, The Boy picked it out, if you can believe it. I couldn’t believe it myself. I kept saying, “Are you serious? You LIKE it? Like, forever like it?” And he kept saying YES, so I said, “Load ‘er up.” There are no back cushions… just 3 sitting cushions. It’s clean and simple and so absolutely unique. happyhappyhappy dance
Our green toile couch with the 5 gazillion cushions will go to live with our favorite nurse, Renae. This summer we plan to finish off half of the basement and move the tv down there. Think fun carpet, comfy pillows, and Band of Brothers marathons. Upstairs will be for chicken and longhorn gazing, knitting, hot chocolate, and idle chatter. I think the leather saddle Old Texas Alamo couch and chair are perfect for that. We also got a rug to go under the couch and chair [read: the tax return cometh], but Abe puked on it last night so I can’t show you that right now. Nothing says “we got a new rug” like dog puke.
And now, to clean. And play with the chickens. And Franklin the Barn Cat… the newest addition to TexasNorth. He was a very friendly lost kitty in Stace’s neighborhood Friday. He was so nice that we just threw him in the back of the car and took him home. Why not, I say. Why. Not.
