Here's the new comforter that I ordered a while back. We have a king sized bed and now it looks huge in our bedroom. It's going to take some getting used to. It really looks like fall. We had an ecru summer weight down comforter on the bed... for the summer.The fabric on this new comforter is soft and not as shiny like the picture.The dust ruffle was a job to get on....had to be pinned all the way round with those little spiral pins that they used to use on doilies. I was afraid that the elastic would sag after a while. I opted for elastic...thinking that the mattress is too big and heavy for us to lift and put the other kind on. The cords from the wall lamps bother me now...I never noticed them until this picture. Someone asked to see the comforter...I can't remember who.....so I obliged.
Today is a little cloudy. It looks like it could rain. I was going to go to the farmer's market, but then got caught up in bed making....so I figured that the "good stuff" would be gone.
Speaking of the new comforter....do you like new things? I takes me a while to adapt to new...be it a new pair of shoes, bedding, a new handbag, new furniture arrangement, or even new foods. I can shop online everyday...almost buy things but then delete the order at the last minute. I was never like that before the age of online shopping.
Joe's class reunion is coming up this month. It's to be casual, but I wanted something new to wear. I can't tell you how many things I have almost bought online. I get reminders that I left something in my shopping cart often. You'd think that I was dining at the White House.. for heaven's sake. It's casual!!! I have any number of things in my closet that are suitable....these people haven't seen any of them....but I have... and I felt that I needed something new.
(Here we go from clothing to kale.) Kale is another example. I want to like kale. I know how good it is for me......but I can't get used to the taste or texture. I bought a "new" salad in a bag. It has kale, cabbage, broccoli, carrots etc. A healthy mix. I really don't like it. Joe wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. So, there it sat in the fridge. It's old now and this morning I had to toss a half bag of it.
New birdseed is another thing. I usually buy sunflower seeds only. This week, I tried something new. A fruit and nut assortment. You should see the birds. I swear they are giving me the evil eye. They want the old familiar. The squirrel is the only happy one and the chipmunk of course. The birds will get used to it.
So, I guess at my age, it's time to try new things. I won't always like the new, but it's good for my mind to stay out of the rut...so to speak. The only thing that I don't have to get used to are new movies and books. I love to watch new movies and especially love to open a new book. The one I'm reading, Chasing Francis, is a great book. I can hardly put it down. I want to see what happens at the end...but I won't read the last chapter.
Well, this is the holiday weekend. I'm trying a "new" recipe for me. I found it at Jane's blog....http://blondiesjournals.blogspot.com/ She made a tomato pizza thing that looked delicious. We'll give it a try.
Hey, new comforter, new book, new recipe, and a new outlook on change. How 'bout that?
