Somethings are the same no matter where you live.

Two blog posts in one day!  This is what happens when you mix early morning, coffee and the excitement of the Internet man coming to my house!

Turns out that when the Ikea catalogue comes to the mail box, it doesn’t matter if you can read the words it’s still just as exciting to go through page by page and see what’s new from last year.

I meant to show pics of our free couch from the neighbour, it’s not in the best shape but it’ll work in the hobbyraum downstairs.  Once the kids are playing inside cause it’s raining all the time, we’re going to be very grateful that we have something in that room so they can go and play out of the main livining area.  The couch is in three separate pieces which I think I’m going to try to attach together once we move them to the basement.  If you look closely you’ll see that there is actually knitting on the back of the couch!  (remember when this was a knitting blog, and I KNIT!)

Following is the corner of the couch where Elijah’s toys wait for him to come home from school.  Somedays they are at a movie and need me to make them popcorn at lunch time.  Today Uppsie Daisy is reading to them so the books are on the back of the couch so she can reach them.  It’s a very elaborate morning ritual which cannot be rushed just because “the trains are coming Elijah, hurry up!”  Uppsie is a bit of a floosy, she hasn’t worn a top in quite some time, the little minx just wants to be the center of attention all the time.

  1. I LOVE Ikea. I loved going with my mom when we lived in Germany and it’s still one of my favorite places to shop. Stopped by from SITS!
