The Couch Has Landed

The couch came! Only four days late. We'd honestly given up on getting it this week. It was supposed to be delivered this past Monday, but due to some unspecified SNAFU it never shipped from the warehouse, and then it sat on a truck, etc. They were expecting it to arrive Friday afternoon, but since Heather and I are leaving town, we didn't expect to get it until Monday. But, hurrah, it showed up at the 11th hour on Thursday evening, and was in my house by 7 p.m.

The couch is awesome. In the showroom, we thought it looked smaller than our old couch, but now that it's in our living room, it's clearly larger. On the old couch, I exactly fit when I stretched out completely. Now, I can stretch out, and there's room beyond my feet for our fattest cat to sleep comfortably! Big fluffy cushions. A chaise on one side. And it's still far less heavy than our old monolithic couch. I'm in the land of bliss.

It's been a busy week. Wednesday was my day off, and I took the car in to get the windshield wipers fixed (it was just a busted fuse), oil changed, new tires, 120,000 mile services, brakes repaired, etc. -- all the things I've been putting off until we got $$$.So now I'm confident the car won't die on us or otherwise fail in some spectacular way on our road trip up to Sonoma county. I wrote a wee bit on Wednesday, a couple thousand words, not great. But I walked several miles on various errands, so at least I got exercise.

In a few hours, I'll leave work, go pick up Heather in San Francisco, and we'll take off for a weekend in the place where the Russian River meets the sea. I can't wait. Reading books, eating good food, drinking wine... hope you all have a good weekend, too.
