Oh adorable husband Jim, how do I love thee…let me count the ways….
Thou went out to buy video games and came back in a tizzy about a yard sale that made you do a double take, pull a wicked U-turn and run down the driveway at the slightest glimpse of a tulip shaped table and chairs (oh how I’ve taught you well). Thou sped home post haste to scrounge for sofa change when thou found out the set was only $50. Thou urged me to purchase the set instead of talking me out of it even though we already have a larger version. Your love is true. Sighhhhhh….
These two chairs are actually very similar (if not identical) to the other armless tulip chairs I have in my dining room, though these chairs are about 1 inch higher, which is good because I felt the other chairs were a bit short for the dining room table. I can swap the shorter chairs out and put them with the round table and all is right with the world, that is as soon as I recover the seats for these…
…seersucker polka dot cotton is not a good upholstery choice for a chair seat.
I also spotted this mini drink set at the same sale. Needless to say, it had to come live at the ranch! Only $2!
Look at those starbursts!
So it turns out that there are no tulips in my garden, just a tulip table and chairs in my den…but look at the garden now, only a mere one and a half weeks after planting:
That’s right Leo! Holy Salad!
Every day or so the plants seem to double in size…
look at the radishes now!
…and the cute little lettuce!
…and the peppers…as in more than one pepper!
Everything is up except the parsley. C’mon little guy…you can do it!
It is raining right now…I wonder how big the plants will be tomorrow!!!
