If I thought I Could Fix It ...

When we lived in Michigan, we bought two La-Z-Boy recliners in red leather, that I really like. They are very comfy and a great place to take a nap.  Unfortunately, since moving here both have experienced a broken spring in the recliner mechanism. It was obvious with each of them. When we took the first one in last year, we had it back in a few days. When mine went a couple weeks ago, we took the parts that had fallen off it when the spring broke, told them the spring broke and they had it at least a week before they even ordered the part. I still don't have my chair back after 11 days. Personally, if I thought I could fix it, I would stock the parts and fix it myself.

Cleanup Day

What DH and I hadn't intended to do today was to defoliate some tree limbs that came down in last night's storm.  The big limb on the left is what brought the other two down. DH is standing right at the back of the limbs, so you can see it was a mess!

We spent an hour defoliating the limbs. Our nice neighbor behind us wants the firewood and will come with his chain saw and cut it up and take what he wants! We gave our chain saw to DH's cousin and her husband before we moved from Michigan. Nice neighbor behind (all our neighbors are nice) says straight line winds damaged a lot of trees in the neighborhood five or six years ago. This tree was one of them.

But, because we spent some time outside today, we got to enjoy the lovely yellow irises from cousin/friend Carol back in Michigan.

And I got to enjoy a visit from an indigo bunting this afternoon at the bird feeder, while uploading photos!
