Woo hoo! It’s Friday! Not that it matters a whole lot, I’ll be working some this weekend anyway. LOL
So the couch arrived, w00t! It needs a wee bit of repair, but overall it is in excellent shape. I bought the old couch for $100 and it’s lasted a couple years. Of course, it would have lasted much longer except for getting stomped on & jumped on by a certain 200 lb sharp clawed party. Anyway, this is the gem – found it for only $150, which is a real bargain! Both ends recline & it’s all leather. We’re trying to keep the canine crew off it, but if they sneak onto it, at least it will withstand the paws. :D
For once, Leonardo didn’t jump into the shot. LOL He was busy leaning on me at the time. And yeah, it took about 30 seconds for the oldest manlet to declare that this couch is teh awesome. ;)
Speaking of the oldest… he has been really fascinated the past few months with graffiti art. He’s actually gotten really pretty good at it (with markers on paper, btw)! I had to ban him from the spray cans because he oversprayed my car. he he he Anyway, in the course of researching the various artists online, he has found some truly impressive videos out on YouTube. Here is just one sample – outright AMAZING, isn’t it?! (I know this one isn’t graffiti – I’ll post some of his other finds in another blog entry!)
Blech, no running accomplished this week. *sigh* One thing after another, but overwhelming number of days where I woke up with a headache. grrrr!
BUT ~ when I do get ready to run, I’m all set with the new iPod! :D I finished up my Runner’s Companion project pretty quickly. I’m not too sure about the yarn I used – I’m thinking a good sock yarn might have been better, especially since wool has a fantastic wicking benefit to it. I’ll know more after the first couple of runs, I think! Anyway, here it is!

So believe it or not, “couch” actually did turn up some results! Not enough to have some fun here, though, so I tried something else instead.

Happy Friday, all!
