The Golden Couch & Fish Lake

 Call from Matthew - "Did you get my text message?" I have not. Wait for text to arrive. See a picture of a fabulously vintage golden yellow Baldwin-style couch. Heart rate increases. Best part - the huge FREE sign. 

12:15 p.m. 
Call Matthew back - Yes, yes, yes, yes I want it. He wins Husband of The Year award for finding this beauty. Can it fit in the back of the truck?! He'll call me back.

12:17 p.m.
Well it would...except we still have the full sized boxspring we just purchased off craigslist - in the back of the truck. My screams are heard across the land - Nooooooooooooooooooo! "Don't worry" he tells me. He'll drive the 30 minutes home from EWU, pick me up and drop the boxspring in the garage, and then we'll go pick it up together. HUSBAND OF THE YEAR. 

2:00 p.m. 
After lunch, we depart for Cheney - to see if the magnificent yellow couch is still there!

2:35 p.m.
IT"S STILL THERE! Quick - put it in the truck before someone else takes it!


Post yellow couch extravaganza, we decided to stop by Fish Lake - a beautiful little spot complete with lily pads, willows, and a sandy beach. Numi went wild!
