Some Days Are Really Good Days
Yesterday was a really good day. S and I repaired tack holes in her bedroom walls so we can start to paint so she can have a really cool bedroom. R came over and we all baked bread...good for the soul.
We got to see friends that we haven't seen in a long time and the kids got to play the Xbox until way past bed time...but that was also a good thing. It made them very happy.
At one point yesterday, S, R and I were all sitting around this table knitting and visiting...that was very good for my soul...to have two of my most very favorite people in the world, not to mention that I am blessed enough for the two people to be my daughters, sitting around just knitting and enjoying each other...very good for my soul. I hope it was good for theirs too.
Now...about the table!!!!
For several years we have not had a dining room table...D and I have looked and kind of kept an eye out, but never found "the table". Last Friday, on his way to work D stopped at a yard sale on our block and looked at this table and chairs. He called me and I walked down and looked at it...I asked the lady having the sale to put a sold sign on it and I would go get cash...
The table is solid wood...I think maple...it is drop leaf and has two other inserts that are stored in the table itself, so it gets bigger! Plus I got 4 chairs, two captains and two armless...for $75...for all of it!!!
Gotta tend the dragons...
