Saturday at my house...

Here you can see the chair I already did and the duck doing the table on the box with the other chair.

And here they are!  Very comfortable and they recline one position further back as well.  The little table between them is nice, I like that it does not have a glass top, my other one does.

I am in the upper condo that is almost cut off in this photo.  I was looking into the sun and didn't get a good shot but it's that high up and a bit windy.  Some days a lot windy.  I don't like those days too much.  Anyway I am very proud of the chairs, they are exactly what I wanted.  I only wish I had found them when Sarge was still here, he would have loved them as well.

Next up I went to the pool for a half hour of exercise in that warm lovely water.  I put on my bathing suit and sunscreen and cover up.  I gathered up my beach towel, my purple noodle, my bifocal sunglasses, my kindle, and my water shoes and off I went.  As I was opening the gate to go into the pool area the weather alarm sounded on the golf course.  One long.  Lightening.  Back up I went.  By the time I got upstairs it was lightening, thunder, and rain.

I waited about two hours for the all clear but no, it didn't happen.  So I got my pajamas on and turned on Pandora for some ABBA.  I started dancing.  All by myself.  Twirling and dancing and having so much fun.  Who knew I could still dance?  I haven't done it in thirty or more years I'm sure.  Sarge wouldn't go near a dance floor.  I had a blast.

And so that was my day in a nutshell.  How was yours?


  1. Those are lovely chairs and do look comfy, Sorry the weather made you miss your lovely swim!

  2. Oh Bee you look fabulous, oh and so do the chairs.
    I have some similar one inside in the library/tv room and I love them.
    I didn't know you lived so high up and I adore your view.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Wonderful post! I went back and read the posts I missed... I always do that.
    I love your view, but I would miss my garden. Or if I had your view maybe I wouldn't need my yard. The chairs look terrific, as do you!
    I am the non-dancer in our house, which is a shame because human loves to dance.

  4. Dancing! Great exercise and so much fun! You can use your purple noodle as a dance partner! Love it!

    Love the chairs! I'd love the same thing!

    Have yourself a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  5. Love that you were dancing and having fun ! My little granddaughters love the movie 'Mama Mia' so we dance to ABBA music all the time !! It's fun being the 'Dancing Queen' !! PS...Love your view.


  6. I love your chairs and your balcony is HUGE! I would love a balcony, though it would look stupid on my house. ;)

    I quite often dance in the kitchen when I'm cooking. MWM doesn't dance much but I love it, which I why I go to Zumba twice a week.

  7. Bee, Your chairs look so look so pretty relaxing in it too! I love that you decided to dance - dancing makes you happy ( even when you do it alone) and its so good for you.......those sticks of butter will just keep slipping off you with all the exercise you are doing.....
    Enjoy the chairs and the beautiful view.


  8. They look so nice and comfy! And your balcony rocks! Keep enjoying it :)
    Hugs from Ohio,

  9. Kudos to you and the duck. Great team! Everything looks great and comfy. Dance on! I do that around the house.

    Have a great day. Come join us for cake! Big hugs, honey...

  10. I love the image of you dancing to ABBA, I think I may just have to call you Dancing Queen from now on. ;)

    And those chairs are very nice, I want them for our patio!

  11. Ewe can see yoo dancing to Dancing Queen Auntie Bees!
    Fuzzy hug Saturday

  12. The first thing Mary Lou said to me this morning was that Bee has a beautiful, large balcony with her beautiful new chairs and how wonderful Bee looks. Well I had to wait for breakfast and when immediately to the computer to check on your blog my friend. Mary Lou was totally correct. Wow, what a balcony with a great view and those chairs, they look very relaxing.
    It's a shame that you couldn't get to the pool but you dancing, fantastic Bee. Mary Lou hates dancing but I'm even though my leg is not was it was like years ago I'm the dancer extraordinare in my family.
    Tomorrow my daughter is having both dads over for a BBQ. She and her husband do this every year. She called my son but he will not be coming over. Oh well.
    Have a great day my lovely friend.

  13. I can remember hearing that horn at Dad's place. Didn't know what it was for at first.

    I love those chairs! recliners/how clever! I would have loved those on our balcony!

    Keep dancing...

  14. I love your new patio furniture. I knew I would because you have such great taste. Just saying.

    Love that you were dancing. Pandora rocks and then some. Good for you.

    Have a terrific day honey. Bug hugs. :)

  15. I love your new chairs. I can just picture you out there with a cup of coffee and your kindle playing draw something :). Now you dancing made me smile big and thinking John would be shaking his head at your choice of music...haha. I hope you get a chance to swim today.

    Big Hugs!!

  16. Hi Bee,
    Trying again to leave comments.
    Love the new patio furniture. Enjoy in sunshine and health.

  17. So you're a dancing empress rather than a dancing queen? Either way it sounds like you had a nice time and got your blood moving in spite of the nasty weather - good for you!

    The new patio furniture looks lovely - and comfortable! I'm sure you'll get lots of lovely use from it.

  18. Hiya Cruisin' Lady...
    I truly have missed reading your blog. No excuses from me...
    I will stop in as often as I can.
    Love the chairs :D

  19. My dear Empress... please tell me, how were those epidurals for your sciatica? I am scheduled for my first on on June 27th and a bit apprehensive. It's good to be back. Hugs, Carol G

  20. Mmmm. Love the chairs, but even more the idea of you dancing all around your apartment keeping time to Abba.

    You are a Dancing Queen!

  21. You go, girl! I have been known to dance around my living room, too. Chairs look great. Enjoy!
