A Beckoning Couch

is one adorned with something snugly, squishy and fuzzy…extra-large pom poms are an added perk. It’s no wonder this is our favorite place to lounge.


The weather has intensified to a wily state where the clouds cluster and the rain has mustered for an extension of time that feels like an eternity when waiting to plunge into pools with twisting slides that leave children shrieking, then laughing and eventually making them sleep deeply through the night.

The mighty ocean still cannot swindle me into taking a plunge, but I have no complaints admiring her perched up in the nest. While I can no longer say we are devoid of the almighty sun, the crisp early morning air still beckons us here.

It will continue to move with us as our lives change, it may get a new fabric look one day since it’s supported many bodies even used as a makeshift bed for overnight guest. Thank you for your kind words.


  1. I could curl up on that couch with that lovely, warm throw and stare at the ocean for hours! I’d also love a little cutie playing nearby! I’d be thrilled to invite her into my impromptu tent! 🙂
