We have been needing new kitchen chairs but my husband and son insisted they had to swivel or roll. (We like to roll about the kitchen to get things out of the fridge while at the table, and the chairs are ever so comfy I do admit!)
But, our kitchen table is rather vintage and has these crossbars supports under the ends of its rectangle shape. Which, make it impossible for any normal size chair to fit under the table. I have been dropping hints about using desk chairs for a while and finally my sweet hubby gave me the chance,(since nothing else was working out!) I think it was at Best Buy...we found these comfortable chairs, brought them home, assembled them and yes! they fit under the table perfectly. So...I sewed them new dresses to wear for the occasion although their brown leather 'look' does nicely too.
I am so sleepy today but I honestly think I got TOO much sleep last night. Really. I took my library books over to the library this morning and bought 1 movie and 5 books from their 'sale' shelf. Then I stopped in at our Goodwill and bought more books and a kneeling pad for the garden. All for under $10...big grin. I'm going to run a Clorox wipe over their covers next. Now you know I'm a germ-o-phobia person.
I'm looking forward to planting some seeds this week-end. Isn't this break in the weather heavenly? I'm ready for spring, though I will miss the cozy warmth of the woodburner in the spring. I don't like that part of spring where its wonderful outside and chilly inside.

Oh how I love the way books can carry you away on drifts of thought...places you've been many times but had forgotten the delight of...or the recovery from sadness of...and such. A gift from our Father, indeed.
