Good morning! Happy Saturday. I found this beautiful piece of bark yesterday at work while I was walking around during a break in the storm. I love that the bark is so delicate and paper thin, and how the lichen looks like it’s blooming across the top. I love it when nature gifts us with these beautiful, tiny little presents, don’t you?
Did you have a good week? Mine was busy but not stressful, so the time went by fast. I got to help a lot of instructors get ready for their classes, and I stepped up to run point on a big project in our department. Oh, and I had lunch with my co-workers a couple times this week and got to know some people a little better. I’d say it was a good week!
Today I’m taking Connor shopping to buy some shoes and maybe a dress for her school’s father-daughter dance, which is next week. I’m also going to drag her to a few furniture places because I am determined to buy some accent chairs for the living room.
I’m specifically looking for two swivel chairs with a rounded shape that are relatively compact but comfortable. I found these online last night. What do you think?
And here’s the Sophie Upholstered Swivel Chair from World Market!
I don’t want to spend a ton of money on them because Connor’s so young and I anticipate the chairs eventually getting trashed by her and her friends; perhaps I’d buy another set in about five years or so.
To be honest, I’d rather spend more on higher quality chairs, but I also don’t want to be too precious about our furniture. I don’t know if it’s the right path to take because I really don’t want to buy more stuff that we just won’t keep, but I want to feel like our home is one we can actually live in.
Anywho! Let me know if you have any good ideas. I’d love to hear ’em.
