The deep chair was designed to be used with a loose supporting pillow. This isn't the right pillow … I'm waiting to gauge my fabric quantity before I make the pillow covers. Still thinking it may be grey on front (with a monogram in turquoise thread and piping to match the chair) and a different fabric (maybe like the one pictured) on back, or both front and back the same fabric (leaning towards mixing it up a bit!). The chairs are so comfortable, perfectly scaled for tall people.
Also, delighted to have a stack of interesting books on the way! We ordered my top 6 picks last night and I have two that I'm working through right now with one waiting on the table. It's been a while since I made time to read as much as I like to … only so many minutes in a day!
My husband is interested in The Daniel Plan. I am doing pre-reading on that now. It is not very different then how we already eat. I think it is such a luxury to be able to cook for my family rather then needing the convenience of eating out a lot.
We still have all three of those silly black cats! I guess I sorta like them. They are funny together and all have sweet personalities. They sure do like to run in and out (and about). Sammy is okay with them … we tried to send a couple of them off with the kids at Christmas, but each one meowed so desperately that the cars were turned around and the cats were unceremoniously dropped off in the drive way. Little whiners.
What else … airplane stuff up in the air so to speak. Still waiting to see if the shareholders in the plane are able to secure (purchase) it. They seem to have been conned out of huge chucks of money. Very sad. I do hope, for their sake, that everything works out for them to keep the plane. I love instructing them in it. It is so cool to help motivated people reach their goal, and of course, it is a joy to fly. I've got lots to do either way … one big goal this year is to create a habit of daily intentional exercise. Last year I had great success in getting and maintaining an appropriate weight … this year, yoga, cardio and weights for strength training (I think my gym has a rowing machine, and I think I would love rowing). In general, I suck at group exercise. I think it is time for me to accept that … lol! VERY excited about my FitBit Force bracelet coming as a birthday gift … I love that I'll be 55 in a few days. I like getting older … should say, I like the experiences that come with time on the task of living life.
And … I think it's time for me to get to work around here! Loved visiting California! I should get out more!
Oh … three quick additions … an interesting (to make) lamp and an interesting painting seen in the Tommy Bahama Store:

I might create one with white clay and glaze
