I have to include a few words about my new couch! To start with, I love it. I found it in the clearance section at Brown Squirrel. It called out to me from its position toward the back of the area where it was surrounded by other chairs and sofas. I don't know quite how to sing the praises of a couch, except to say it's welcoming, very welcoming :) It's a great place to visit in-between the harshness of newscasts about politicians, IS, and ebola. Let's think of pleasant things whenever we can.
