During this last move our friends said, “It’s time to chuck that old stuff out!” We agreed with them, but there are a few hurdles between them and the junk heap.
Mozambique has precious little replacement furniture to offer…tired furniture is better than no furniture.
If you flip the cushions over, it doesn’t look as bad…maybe we could just recover it?
It’s difficult to part with stuff that so many memories are attached to. It’s just plain difficult.
Two lazy boy chairs currently stand in our yard because there is simply no place to put them in our small living quarters. They’ve been sitting there for over 3 months, and I think they’ll be there a few months more. By the time rainy season rolls around we’ll need to have a decision one way or the other. I have a hunch they’ll end up on our back veranda, and in time, they’ll once again be squeezed through doorways where they’ll carry on with their purpose in life. Truth is, they’re not much to look at but they still work (sort of). That + 1 + 2 + 3 (above) = 0 new furniture in the near future. (Lynn’s furniture replacement assessing formula). I think I better google “Reviving Old Furniture”. I don’t think this furniture’s adventure is over yet!
