Can you believe it?! I'm so thrilled to have landed a cute little wooden picnic table at a yard sale this weekend...perfect for under The Climbing Tree (have we thought of a better name yet?)! So what do you think? What color other than the primer splattered with some questionable tan generic color should I paint this darlin' thing...???
In L.L. Bean we discovered glossy white, or red, or hunter green picnic tables that just beg for a site like this. Yet...when I'm looking at this little table now...in it's own setting...I'm just not so sure...
Perhaps it should just be painted a basic woodsy brown or sage green that's not quite so glitzy...I don't know...decisions, decisions.
Anyhoo, I love having it here and the children have thoroughly claimed it and made it their own. All it lacks is the official christening of sticky jelly, peanut butter, and marshmallows - which will come only too soon!
And then there's the see-saw...
Which could also be a perfect depiction of my life right now...or, better yet, the quandary of my life right now! It's the balancing act that must be performed in the last waning days of summer. Where oh where has this summer gone...??? I wanna know! How much more can we get done on the log home, rearrange the storage unit, fix the barn for the horse, get some more hay up, get the bunny cage expanded, and now prepare for a new homeschool year,...??? And ya know, there's much, much more besides! What can I say? Decisions, decisions!
Well, I'm just not gonna boggle my brain over it all...not just now anyway. We still have some beautiful...FULL...is the operative word here...days ahead and I want to enjoy each non-blustery-cold, non-snowed-on minute of them! Even if it does mean some wild, precarious balancing act to pull it off! And that's my decision!
So jump on over to Green Pioneer and see what we got done on the homestead this week!
