At Long Last

We've been searching for the perfect 'patio furniture' for a few years now. Nothing we found satisfied all our criteria and was in our price range. After a brief look again this year I thought, *picnic table* it will have to be. Wasn't my first choice because I think most of them look cheap. We commissioned to have this one made for us and we like it.

It was delivered Thursday evening and we enjoyed our first dinner outdoors. I loved it, Piper was amused, and I don't think Zac cared one way or another so long as I was happy. I wanted to post pictures of our outside dinners, but really who remembers to bring their camera to dinner. My second favorite part about it, is that the benches are separate from the table. Meaning that when we have guests for a fire we can use them for additional fire viewing seating in a pinch. Now I have my eye on a pair of Adirondack chairs for said fire viewing, wish me luck.

Planned to post days ago but have been too busy. Cleaning window sills and putting in screens occupied my time. Yes, I know that is to be done in the spring. We didn't know that our living room windows even opened. So many in our old old house are painted shut.

Piper and I trekked to a bridal shower for my soon to be sister-in-law. By request I knit them both fingerless mittens. Again, yes, I know that's a fall/spring staple..it was by request. Modeled here by my love and me.

Hope your weekend was well despite the rain.
