Wednesday work

New tables, chairs
I have been wanting a nice table/chair set where we can eat dinner, play games, etc. (notice the singular “I").  Dick thinks our wooden picnic table with the attached benches is fine.  I don’t.  It isn’t comfortable for any lengthy sitting.  Period.

So Dick relented and went shopping with me, and then did one better—found just what we wanted already gently loved by someone else.  In the bargain, we also got a matching bistro (high top) table and 2 chairs, AND a matching side table. 

3 tables; 8 chairs…all for cheaper than the new price for 1 table and 6 chairs at the local store.

Did I mention bargain?  We love to save (cruise) money!

Today was already cleaning and laundry day, so now there is more to clean, but I’ll be smiling!  Mama’s happy.

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, y’all!  And while you are at it, please say some prayers and send some bloggy love for our good friends Bee and Sarge.  They sure need them. 

Thank you very much.

Very smart shopping! I need a new set of chairs for my bistro table. Perhaps I'll find some gently used, too!

Charlie's news yesterday took my breath away when I read it. It just breaks my heart. They are both in my heart and prayers daily.

Big hugs, my friend. xoxo

There is nothing like finding exactly what you need at a bargain! No doubt you'll be enjoying your new find in no time!

Lots of love and prayers being sent to Bee and Charlie today. I knew this would eventually be coming but it doesn't make it any less heartbreaking.

That's wonderful! There's nothing wrong that... It keeps more out of the trash.

Definitely sending out the prayers and love...

Excellent that you found comfortable patio furniture to sit on that you love, Sandy!
Smart shooping, like Barb said:)
