See the new sofa?  Right there next to the desk chair?  No?  Neither do I.  That's because it's not here.  It's a fairly long story but there are restrictions on deliveries in condos, ours is 9-5:00 and not one minute after.  That was clearly written on the order.  

Someone at the delivery department said it wasn't convenient and changed to to 4-8:00.  When I called to say it didn't come they said it would be there before 8:00.  No, sorry, it won't be allowed in.  I had the gate called, the manager called, the elevator padded, and the doorman told.  So - I have no sofa.  Oh, and the delivery fee for this great service was almost a hundred bucks.  

This is what it should look like.  I will toss or recover the pillows but the sofa is very plain and it is actually a denim slip cover, washable.  And a bed with upgraded mattress and ottoman.  So maybe next week, I am working with a nice person now, someone that seems to have a brain so I am hopeful.  Stay tuned.

In the meantime all is still well in my world.  I got my hour in the pool before the rain came and that was lovely.  And today I have canasta.  With mostly people I like. (insert smile here).

Oh, and that top photo is old because my tv is on that wall now but you get the idea.  Have a great Thursday y'all.  I sure will too.  Promise.


  1. I ♥♥♥ that orchid art. I have been perusing orchid photos for inspiration to paint one. Did you know I used to have orchids? Not that I am any sort of professional in any way shape or form - I just love them. I had about 4-5 dozen orchids. I had to leave them all with a friend in Florida when I moved because the yard in my house in Georgia was much too sunny for them.

    And my cats kept breaking the bloom spikes on my inside plants. *sigh*

    Buggers to no couch because people can't follow simple instructions.

    Have yourself a lovely day! And me, too. big hugs xoxo

  2. How frustrating! I hope they get it right the next time. Meanwhile, have a great day!

  3. Why, oh why can't ppl follow instructions?! Sooo frustrating. Good luck.

    Big hugs, honey...

  4. Humans are screwy at times. Who ever changed the times should be whipped with a wet noodle. I like your pink chair. Have a great day my wonderful friend. I'm leaving to have my colonoscopy right after I send this comment. See ya Bee.


  5. Well bless their hearts. That's why you put special instructions on deliveries. Hello. Just bless their hearts.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and my very best to Roche. ♥♥♥

  6. UGH... I've been there with those rules and deliveries. I know how frustrating it is when the shipper doesn't understand that the special instructions are really true. Hope you get it today.

  7. Bee, I had to back up to see all I have missed in your world. I love that sofa....but the pain of the business people. Hope it comes when you can get it. xoxo,Susie
