SoCS – The Simplicity of a Couch

Day 342

Today, Linda again provides a place for us to practice stream of consciousness writing. Her prompt today is:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “couch” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

Since my daughter has been home, the couch has been the place where she has recovered nestled under her favorite blanket with her family around her.

We have spent time sitting on the couch talking, watching my granddaughter’s favorite movies, waiting for news about the storm and even releasing the tears of pent up worries.

At night I have gone out on the patio to sit on the outdoor sofa to chat with hubby. Bella, their feral rescue cat, takes that as an immediate invitation to sit and be petted. She considers the outside furniture her domain.

When I was younger I longed to be fancy and call our sofa a divan or a settee. Then my cousin talked about having a chesterfield and I thought nothing could ever be finer in comparison to our plain old vanilla couch.

The storm track has moved out to sea as of this morning. We are no longer in the ‘cone’. But we all know the storm is capable of changing at any moment. No one is letting their guard down but we would all love to couch any further hurricane discussions.

My daughter is much improved today although she has been sleeping a lot. I am praying we have rounded a corner and it will be better from this point forward.

If you would like to give SoCS a shot, check out the rules over at Linda’s blog. Take a gander at what everyone else had to say about couches today.

  1. Glad to hear that your daughter is little better, and that the storm has ‘moved’. Let”s hope it stays moved, and that your daughter continues to get well.
    Best wishes as always, Pete.

  2. I’m sorry to be late getting to your blog, but glad everyone is safe and that your daughter is getting better. Sitting on the couch talking and watching children’s movies with the grand daughter sounds sweetly comforting, and probably good medicine, too. I’m sending thoughts and prayers for healing and peace.

  3. Ummm… so just catching up… went back a few posts… and just wanna say thank you for being a part of “The Good” in the world… adversity doesn’t deter you from doing what you feel you need to do… impressive. I also found it interesting that you had a restless night’s sleep the night or two before…?!

    1. Dan, the storm is fluctuating. Our place in NC should be ok. Here in Florida, we just watch and wait. We are in the cone, but not the center of the cone.

  4. I also wondered about your restless night just before the health challenge of your daughter. We do seem to be connected to our children in that way sometimes. May she heal and may you stay out of the wind and rain.
