This is our couch. I'ts brown corduroy and very soft. The left end is my spot where most everything I need is right at my fingertips: magazines, remote, light, Puffs tissues, reading glasses and a blanket.
The sheer drapes let just the right amount of light in without being too dark or too bright. The room looks dark here but really it's nicely lit with the sun's rays.
Since our two oldest kids have moved away, and the youngest back at school, and me working just part time I basically have lots to quiet time. Sometimes it's a blessing and other times not so much.
If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.
