Before I get on to my post, I just have to share this...so fitting for me. This morning after my workout I had a 'momentary' lapse of judgment.
OK fine, maybe not momentary... I made some very unhealthy choices at the grocery. Ray is away at retreat and apparently I justified the unhealthy with the good ol' "when daddy is away, the kids and mommy will play."
Why is it the one time I have frozen french fries, oreos, brownie mix and ice cream in my cart my fitness instructor walks up behind me in line? I'm being totally truthful here.
Yes, I was called on it but I quickly stammered my reasons as to why such junk was in my cart (hey, it was on sale!) In an effort to redeem myself I quickly held up my organic pears and yogurt. I think my ship had already sunk however.
Anyway...my real post...
Do you see these gross resin patio chairs and table? Yuck, right? Remember when I said there wasn't a lot in the budget for NEW patio furniture? In case you forgot, I did. So, this little number was going to end up in the landfill. I am in the middle of trading out farmers market picnic furniture so I knew where this one was headed.
So, what did I do? I hauled it home and thought I could repaint it so we would at least have something to eat on outside.
The redo cost me 15.00 and probably not worth it, but it will suffice for now. I chose Squash Yellow as the color. I bought the oilcloth for just a few pesos when I was working in Oaxaca, Mexico 2 years ago. I have been saving it for the right time.
