A Gown and Robe Kind of Day...........

I didn't get up until 10:00 this morning and I am STILL in my gown and robe! The beauty of being 'retired' is that we don't HAVE to do anything! We can sleep late and stay up late if we so desire!

Louis Dean had coffee made and a fire burning in the den when I finally got up!
He said he was just about to come in and make sure I was still breathing!

It took us all day to get the den put back to rights!

I keep the window unit covered when we're not using it so behind that curtain is a brand spanking new A/C/Heater!

 There's a good dozen cords hanging down but we managed to get the TV/VCR/Sound Bar/Cable all hooked back up and working! It takes us a good bit longer to do this electronic stuff than it does young people!

Lucy was confused all day yesterday and today because her bed wasn't in its proper place.
Everything is back now and she is happy!

We have a baby grand piano in the corner of our den. It has a shiny lacquered black finish that collects dust like crazy! I keep it covered up too. This quilt is hand made and in excellent condition. I bought it at a garage sale for $4! It saddens me to see how little some people value the handmade treasures they are given. THIS one found a good home here!!

Our sweet neighbor, Stephanie, brought in food today! NO cooking for us!!!
It was an Italian casserole with garlic bread and sauteed mushrooms.
DELICIOUS!! Thank you, Stephanie!!!

We caught up on our Downton Abbey episodes this afternoon!
It's amazing how fast they move their storyline along!
Every Wednesday Vee at A Haven for Vee has a discussion post and I look forward to that every week!

Now we are fresh from the shower and in clean bed clothes just waiting for The Black List to come on.

We do love us some James Spader!!
Normally we don't watch it 'live' but record it for the next afternoon's entertainment.
Tonight we decided to be bold and see it before we go to bed......and hopefully we won't have bad dreams.

Haha, I watch Blacklist the next evening (early) as I too usually have bad dreams. Happy you have your den back together:)

Kathy said...

I have never seen Blacklist and seeing as how it gives you and your sister bad dreams, I don't think I will.

So glad you got your A/C taken care of. Won't it be nice when it's finally warm enough to use it? We are supposed to get snow every day for the next 8 days.

Linda, I'd love to have a hub like yours to share my ways of life. Not in this life I am afraid but on the opposite. Happy about your way!

Hi, Sweet Linda...Spader has always been one of my favorites...ever since I first saw him in Pretty in Pink...:) I've never heard of Blacklist...don't know if we get it or not.
hugs, bj

...sometime I wish I could sleep in. 7am is my "sleep in" time

Bev said...

Sounds like a great day!...and I'm glad you found that quilt!

Vee said...

It all looks so cozy that I want to hang out all day there, too. We can talk about Downton Abbey!

Carla said...

That's my kind of day. David is an early riser and I'm not. What an awesome find, a quilt for $4. Their loss and your gain.
Glad you had a slow relaxing day.
