I was asked where we bought our living room furniture in my last post. It was from Nebraska Furniture Mart, which Connie guessed correctly. It is the biggest furniture store in the region now from what I’m told. We bought furniture from them over 43 years ago when they were just a normal little furniture store. My goodness it has grown! The rug was purchased from Costco and I bought the curtains from Amazon before we even chose the furniture. We have ordered a sofa for the family room from Nebraska Furniture Mart also, but isn’t supposed to be in until September.
First off, I finished Miss Piper’s blanket. Here it is all folded up on the bed in her room. Most of my quilts are coming in the POD so I just have a granny afghan as her bed cover right now. The teddy bear is mine from when I was a little girl. He’s pretty threadbare in places but I still love him. Those three gray furry pillows and the black one also came with the living room furniture. I have four pillows on the loveseat and sofa now which was more than enough. Who needs seven pillows?!!
A little bit closer look at the border. It’s just simple single and double crochet. The size should be big enough for her double bed.
When I mentioned the toilet in the basement that has no sink and no place to really put one, several of you suggested this handy little toilet tank lid that takes the water you wash your hands with and fills the tank for the next flush. Thank you so much! I don’t know why I didn’t think of this myself as many, many of the toilets in Japan use the same kind of tank lid. I have this one in my Amazon cart for Dennis to look at when we get back home. This would solve all of our issues wouldn’t it? And it’s under $100! It still wouldn’t be an actual bathroom but at least you could wash your hands.
A good friend at our church in Spokane sent me this picture of my handsome hubby speaking for the last time to the congregation there last week. It’s very sad to leave them all. This same friend was just diagnosed with a brain tumor late Sunday night. Her name is Marilyn and I would really appreciate prayers for her. She beat breast cancer a few years ago and it really saddens me to think of her going through even more illness.
I thought the picture below was beautiful. I love the colors of the flowers and the “Flutter-bys” as my mom always called them.
Wishing you all a lovely week. It’s very, very warm and humid here again today so I hope you are all finding a way to stay cool.
Blessings and love,
