OMG! Can I just tell you what fun my husband and I had this afternoon/evening? Barry is currently “on the bench”, which is contractor speak for in the office and not on a contract site. This means he can pretty much come and go as he pleases, as long as he finishes his in-house training. So, we met at 3:00 this afternoon at Subway and had a late lunch. Then we went to NFM to shop.
Now, I love to shop. The most fun is the looking. We don’t really ever buy much – the biggest reason being we don’t need much, the second being we can’t really afford much! However, today we knew we needed to buy. ‘Twin B’ burned up our over-the-range microwave the other night making popcorn. No, really – he set it on fire and melted the ceiling on the Magic Chef! So, we purchased a beautiful new Bisque Whirlpool 1.7 cu. ft. o-t-r microwave. And (yes, God is so faithful!) it was on clearance – we saved $100.00 on it!!
We also are looking to replace our recliner. The one we have has become a bed to “Roscoe, the rascally retreiver” and is worn out. So, we shopped for recliners but didn’t really see anything we just had to have. THEN – we saw “IT”. A beautiful, red leather, club chair with ottoman (pictured above in black)! AND a matching swivel tube chair. Okay, now I’m in love!
We didn’t buy them tonight. We have a promotional e-mail allowing us to purchase $399 or more on our NFM card with no interest for 24 months. Seems like good stewardship to go back with that e-mail to make that purchase. Always good to be able to spread out payments AND have no interest!! The best part was that Barry and I both really like the chairs – and we liked them without having to convince each other. It was like “Oh! Did you see this chair set? Wow, I love the color!” from both of us at the same time. Not a recliner, but Barry liked the idea that he could sit in the chair and I could sit on the ottoman and lean back into his lap. Two seats for the price of one, plus snugglies! How can we pass that up?
Thank you, Father, for allowing Barry and I to spend time enjoying each other today. Thank you for blessing us with the clearance microwave AND the chairs that will look so nice in the living room. Thank you for loving us even when we are unlovely. Amen.
Resting in His Care,
