I've just been sitting here, admiring my new rug. It makes the room quieter and a wee bit more colorful. You know how when you're shopping and you're not quite sure what you want, but when you see it - it hits you like a whammy between the eyes? Well, that's what this rug did for me. I had run all over town looking, been on many web-sites, and revisited a few in stores - but when I saw this one, I unhesitantly (it IS too a word....) said - This is it!! Now I need a few new throw pillows and smaller coffee table....perhaps a leather, pillow-top bench or something similar, like 2 matching hassocks. I could always use more seating, couldn't you? I like the table we have now; it was my grandmother's library table, and my mom had it cut down to make it a coffee table. The problem is that it is loo long for the space available. When I recline my chair, I have to push the table out of the way of my feet, and that makes it not centered - which I hate. So I am looking for something less than 28-30" wide. It may take a while, but I'll find it.
Gratitude is a good feeling and I feel the need to express mine. Years ago, when I first started blogging, I followed a blog by someone whose initials were AC, I think. She posted about her love of animals, among other things, and music. Posting an audio tape of one of her favorites, Tommy Emmanuel, led me to voice my great liking for that guy's music. Lo and behold, I received a CD she had put together for my listening pleasure - as the old DJ's used to say - and I played it a lot in those first few months. Of course, as time went on I sort of forgot about it, as new CD's took precedence for a while.
A few days back while cleaning and organizing, I discovered that CD again. I have played it at least 6-7 times in the last few days and I like it even more than I did on first hearing, if that's possible. I just want you to know, AC, if you are still reading here that I am very grateful for your gracious gift and still enjoy it. I wish you were still blogging too.
