Goldie’s Goals

I’m Goldilocks.    

{Okay, yeah, I know my hair isn’t gold.     And I don’t have any locks, just stubble.}    

But, this is my story, and I’m sticking to it.     

I’m looking for the perfect chair gardening stool.

First I tried Papa Bear’s Chair.           (PP’s kitchen seat.)

slob, humor, too tall stool

Too hard!

Too  hard tall!!     (I know!!    How could anything be too tall for me??)      I almost fell off of it, when I tried leaning over to weed.     Not good!


Then I tried Mama Bear’s chair.            (PP’s dish washing stool.)

slob, humor, too short step stool

Too soft!

Too soft short!!        (I couldn’t get up without help, too short!)

Now I’m looking around for Baby Bear’s chair, ya know the one that will be just right???        And I don’t see it anywhere!!


PP is fresh outta more stools.          Whatever am I gonna do??

 


Another 8 house post.     Brought to you by Goldilocks, and The Three Bears.

Tale of Two Tables, Two

I have 2 tables. (Which I totally did on purpose.)  The glass top one I inherited with My New Place, (as opposed to My Newest New Place!).

dinette chairs

And the white fold down one, I bought from DD1, specifically for this house.

(Please ignore the Valentine’s Day leftover tablecloth.  This is all about the TABLE!)

 

 

 

1 had to go according to Nony’s 1 in 1 out rule.

Can you believe I got rid of the one that I had already painted 2 of the chairs purple??   The table was too big for the space.  And PP and I kept tripping over those gorgeous legs,

gorgeous curved chair leg

So horribly mean, reaching out those gorgeous curls to trip the unwary!

 

at the other house.   So…… buh bye!   My friend, Kimberorangely, who took it didn’t want the chairs.  But their day will come.  Be afraid, chairs. Be very afraid.  I’m a known killer.

Funny story.  When I saw the posting on Freecycle, wanting a table, I didn’t think anything of it. I just responded that I had a table.  When my friend, Kimberorangely called and said, “Is this you?”  I answered, “Yes! Is this you??”  We thought it was hysterical that neither one of us recognized each other’s names!  (To be fair, hers was initials, with her last name.   It’s a VERY common one too!  And yes, Kimberorangely is not her real name.  But, she likes orange, and my name is Purplelinda, so what could I do??)

So, I just need 1 more tiny table, to put the modem on, before I can move the other table into it’s proper position.

Hey, I have a tiny table!

PP's tiny table

Oh yeah, right!!  that would last all of 2 seconds!  As soon as PP walked in the door, she’d screech “MINE!!”  And that’d be all she wrote.  Poor modem would be in smithereens on the floor, I’d be out of Internet, and the world would end.    <sigh>

So, yeah, that ain’t happenin!

So…. still in need of 1 tiny table….   Any ideas??   Anybody??  

Crickets…….                             <sigh>

 

Aha!  Thank goodness for Sweet Friend!   He’s my idea man!  When he came to visit last night, I was on the computer, (in my Office!) and when I walked out into the dining room, this is what I saw!

Brilliant!!

 

 

The only thing I had to do was decorate!   Thanks, Sweet Friend!  You’re the bestest Sweet Friend I have!

 

Choring Chair

This chair is hideous!!

I was so excited that the lady left it, but not after I sat in it a few hours!!   First of all, the seat is wood.   Ergo, it’s hard.   DUH!

facepalm

Facepalm

 

My seat is so numb…..  and not the chair’s seat, either!

Can you see the problem??

Maybe this view will highlight it better.

The stake’s placements are NOT shaped the same way as my bottom line!!

{Eeew! And it’s dirty too!  But, haha! for once it’s not MY dirt!!   Oh no!   I sat in someone else’s butt funk!!!!!   GAH!!  I think I have to go boil my pants now!!  If only I had a dollar for every time I’ve had to do that, I’d have a dollar!}

Anyway, Sweet friend solved the problem for me.  Thanks Sweet friend!!

Purple Slob in computer chair

Ah! Soft comfort once again!

 

(Why are men so Logical??  That annoys me!!  But, I’m sure happy enough when he fixes something!!)

Now, I can comfortably be on my computer again, for hours upon end.

Lol, see what I did there???

Charity Chair

I have a gorgeous dining room set.  (Well, it will be once it’s all purple instead of green!)  I love the curves of the legs, and the airiness of the glass top.

dinette chairs(Please ignore all the clutter on the table, it was invisible to me until now.  Just play along, and no one gets hurt, capese?)

But I had a serious problem occur.  One of the chairs broke a leg.  How it did this, when I didn’t even know it went out running, I’ll never know.  Nevertheless, here it is, in it’s sad state.

broken chair leg

Poor thing, needs a cast.

broken dinette chair leg

So very tragic.

I wanted to put it out of its misery, like a horse, but how do you kill a chair??  So, I put it out by the road.  Fortunately, my SIL saw it, and questioned me.  He whisked it away in his ambulance van, and returned it to me the next morning, with its leg whole!  Miraculously, he knew a chair leg doctor that worked for thank yous from a sweet, blonde, (PP) baby.  Welded it up, and good to go!

Thank you SIL!!!!

welded chair leg

Better than new. I DARE it to break now!

Now, it’s on restriction, and forbidden to go out running ever again.  Next time, I’ll tie its feet together.
