Rain, Rain, Please Go Away

It’s been raining none stop for two days and there will be no sunshine until possibly Sunday.  I don’t do rain too well.  It’s depressing and I hate driving in it because of the glare issue that I have.  Good thing I got all the straw covered before it started. :)

I’ve been busy looking on Craigslist on a good deal for one of these.

Actually I need to look at these in person in the IKEA store to make sure they are not to large.  I’m thinking two chairs and one stool.  It’s funny, but if I would have looked on Craigslist a week ago I could have found a dozen of these.  Looks like everyone, especially in Maryland was trying to sell them.  

I did go to a guys house this morning to check on two wicker chairs, but they were way to big.  Don’t think I could have even gotten them through the door.

I chatted with the man for a while.  He is a US Marshall….very interesting man.  So we were talking and all the sudden he asks me if I was in law enforcement.  The first thing that came to my mind was that my jacket didn’t cover my handgun that I carry in the inside of my waistband.  I asked him what made him say that and he pointed to my boots.  LOL….Bates Boots….the best walking and most comfortable boots I’ve ever found.  I get them out of a catalogue for law enforcement officers.

I sure have enough space for a couple of small chairs  now that my butt ugly (I like that name…can you tell?) sofa bed is history.




I’ll probably move my office to the right side and use the left for the living room.

LOL….my sister might be coming over on Friday and I don’t have anywhere for her to sit.  I might have to ask Cyndi and Kenny for a folding chair.

Check out those  swell window decorations….aren’t they butt ugly?  They remind me of Motel rooms.   Wonder who came up with that idea?  Somebody told me it had to be a man.  Well, I think I will cover them with a different color material the first chance I get…or totally remove them.

Time to hit the sack.  It sure is nice and snuggly warm in here. :)


  1. My older daughter has 2 of those Ikea chairs in her bedroom but with dark blue cushions. They are very comfy!

    Your place looks cool.

  2. Yes, that's what I've hearing. :) Did you have to put them together? Was it a pain in the ass?

  3. I have two of those chairs as well. They were fully assembled and they had a choice of 4 different colors, but this was 15 years ago and I still use one of them every day. Right now in fact.

  4. Guy....so when ever I get mine, we will all be connected by our chairs. LOL....We'll have to start a Chair Club.

  5. I've just caught up on your last 8 posts Tango and girl you've been busy!!!

    Love what you've done with the place. The more I read about that Buckland Farm Market the more I wish we had one of those close by. They seem like they really care about their customers and that is so rare these days.

    I'm so glad to hear your health scare wasn't anything too serious after all. I know how worried you were. That's great news.

  6. Gypsy....hey...how ya doing?
    Yes, I've been swamped with stuff to do before it gets cold out here.

    Buckland Farm Market rocks!

    I'm super happy about the findings at the doctor. Now if I can just remember to make an appointment for the biopsy. I knew I should have made one while I was there.


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
