No more children sitting on their feet and no more cold bottoms because I finally made padded covers for the metal stools that surround the island in our kitchen. It seems noteworthy to tell you that we’ve nicknamed this seating area Inis Meáin, which translates to ‘the middle island’, and is the same name as our island neighbor here in the Aran Islands.
Most meals are eaten here in the kitchen. The dining room table is a hub for crafting, game playing, Lego and sorting clean laundry. As the chalkboard sign in the upper left corner so well documents, it was our 163rd monthiversary, ♥ 163 months married ♥, it was the 24th of November.
The unabating mild days and warmish weather have made this a wonderful winter so far. A lot more sunshine would be nice, but that just makes our new homemade stool covers all the more welcome. From the feeling of being wrapped in apricity, to the colour and texture they add to the room, they are an all around breath of fresh air for this space.
Cheers to another day, another blessing!
