We've hardly had a winter here and the brilliant blue skies just glow with the last particles of the sun from the west as the moon rises in the east. Beautiful days and nights that we don't want to give up. Finally we sigh, say bedtime, suddenly eager to get to sleep so the next colorful day can arrive. I am still on the road at madrugada, early before dawn or early to rise. The light is just cresting the horizon as I head down the street and out on the carrtera, the main road heading out of town. Amazingly quiet at six ten in the morning.
Recently we were in Mazatlan with some friends and I have shared this photo on Facebook, but not with the blog. A shrimp boat, a dot in the offshore distance (or, KD, is it a dot offshore in the distance or possibly even offshore, a dot in the distance......) from our hotel. I telephoto'd this three times on my Sony cybershot and suddenly it was no longer a dot, it was a real boat with real birds. I like it. I think I'll enlarge and frame it.
And remember these things? The abandoned chairs at the San Carlos Tetakawi? My chairs now, well, a photo of only one of them, but all three are finished. Had Daniel, our iron worker, weld on a couple of the missing metal plates (beneath the base cushion). I still need to stain the wooden base a dark brown.
But they are 'sitable', I bet that's not a word, but maybe it is, maybe it's a word my Big Mama made up when we were kids............ why, this chair is sitable, this is a sitable chair, ya'll sit down now.
Anyway, they are pretty comfy. I went to Sorriana and bought the foam bases, they looked the right size and sure enough, they fit perfectly, snug. Covered them with some upholstery fabric I bought at JoAnn's in Tucson. Did you know you can get remnants there for five dollars a yard? You would not believe how much upholstery fabric I have.
And I am not ashamed. I used my glue gun.
so how long will they be 'sitable'..............you ask.........
why, forever and ever and ever, ya'll come over anytime and sit a spell...........
Senor is playing bridge. I should be doing something, I guess this is my something.
