After looking for a month I have found a headboard for my bed. We went to every yard sale and garage sale I could find today . I found a headboard early but it was a double bed in lousy shape. Canton, Fruitvale, Grand Saline, and Van. After driving through Van we turned around expecting to drive back through Van have lunch and return home without a headboard. I past a ratty little building advertising used tires. I glanced as we went by they had some furniture too. It was a pain to turn around again and see if they had any thing I needed. I left hubby in the care I was so sure that it was a waste of time. An overweight young man laying on a couch ask me if he could help. It seemed too much of an effort to get up. I ask for a headboard a queen size one. He said he thought he had one. We went into a back room with about 25 bedframes leaning against a wall. He ask me to move so that he could toss about half of them down. That brought some guy a running. After I crawled back and peaked at the headboard I measured it somewhat it was big enough. I ask the guy how much when he said $l5.00 I was surprised. They dug it out for me and we finally got it into the trunk of the car. Holding down he trunk lid with a bunji cord. I drove all the way home at 40 miles an hour. It was a bear to carry into the house. Now I just need to get it cleaned up and attached. It is too dark and scratched but I think I can make it work.
I finally think I am getting the house together. I wonder why I have been so positive I had to get every thing together. This is a rented house and I am spending as much time as if it was mine. I don't know why it has just seems important. At least we are comfortable and maybe we can stay put for awhile.
Beautiful day today, I think they were eagles we were watching flying and soaring over the lake this morning. They were way too big for anything else. This is such a pretty place to live you can sit and watch the wild life all day.
