New Furniture And A QP Freebie

July 15, 2015

Good afternoon.  Sorry about such a late post, but the window man came by this morning to check out my windows and give me a price for either ten or fifteen windows. We had a long, but very productive meeting, and I ordered fifteen new windows.  

In a couple of weeks, another person will be out to re-measure all of the windows to be replaced, and give me a date for the installation.  The whole project should be completed no later than the beginning of September. 

While I was taking this man around the house (inside) to measure the windows, I was making a list of maintenance projects that are needing to be done.  Hmmm, we'll be busy here for a while.  My brother was our handyman, but he's been gone for a while now.  It's time to get me a new handyman.  I'll have to check with Joe to see which projects he can do, then hire outside for the rest of the projects. 

Well, yesterday, the new furniture arrived.  The guys brought it in and set it up.  Then I signed the delivery slip and they left.  It was then that I realized that the sofa and  recliner were okay, but the chair was not the one I had purchased.  I called the store to report this.  The manager arranged for a couple of employees to come by after work to deliver the correct chair and pick up the wrong chair. 

Here's photos of the recliner and the sofa.  Thank goodness I thought to take these photos at the store when I was choosing which items to buy.  They look really nice in the den where the walls are a light lime green and the rug is dark green.  Both pieces are very comfortable, and the dwarfs like them.

One of these days, I'll take new photos of the den but I think I'll wait until after we've repainted it.  That's one of the projects coming up soon.  I just have to go buy the paints. 

Here's an image that I borrowed from the web.  I just thought it was the cutest thing!!!   Imagine this little fellow growing into his harness?   Gosh, he looks so anxious to get started with his training.

Today I have another QP freebie for you.   As usual, credits are listed on the TOU.  I hope you can use it.

Here's your download link:

Well that's all my news for today.  Pogo has been waiting patiently for his lunch, so I'm off to the kitchen to rustle up some food for my little guy.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You have been very busy. I need new windows too, but hate doing it. They are so costly too. I do not know why I have been missing you blog. Some days I am just not responsible. Do not over do it.

The new furniture for the den looks beautiful and good thing you did take photos just in case something might go wrong!
And how wonderful you found a windowman who obviously can do the job rather quick (and hopefully also for a good price?).
Yes, in a house there are always jobs to be done. I suppose some of the painting can also be done by the dwarfs? And cannot Eddie do some of the handy/man jobs?

All together it was a satisfying day for you, some things were accomplished as they should be, LOL.
Oh. did you already go to the vet with Pogo?
We seem to get a very nice summerday today, so I will not linger too long at the computer, time to take a coffee in the garden.
Have a lovely day,

I know that I commented on this post but for some reason it never showed up on my end. I just want you to know that I am usually a daily reader... Hugs..
