    Love this picture. I’d like to be sitting on that comfy couch and reading a book!

    I don’t know which is more inviting, the tropical plants/skylights or the comfy couches! There is a cute bookstore up for sale in Seattle and I so wish I could buy it.

    The only thing lacking (depending on the time of day) is a cooler with a bottle inside (chilled glass to the ready) or a tray with a teapot, cup & saucer and a plate of hot scones .. oh, I think that sofa needs a purring cat…

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
