Outdoor Seating

I love to read. I love it. Love love love it.
I especially love the classics, but will read anything. (Well, almost anything).
I also love to read outside when it is nice and sunny and warm and breezy.
I have been looking for a lounger for my deck (just for reading purposes) and came across this.
I just had to have it.
However, me, being me, I couldn't just buy it right then and there...on the spot?!?
No sir-reee bob.
Just with everything I purchase, I had to give it a lot of thought and deliberation (it's a blessing and a curse). So, I mulled over it and found a lot of other lounge chairs in stores and online that I thought looked nice. But, I always came back to this one.
It reminded me of the Dominican Republic. I loved the Dominican Republic.
So, a few months later, I bit the bullet and bought it.
It arrived today.

The UPS man leaned the box against my garage door.

It made me very excited when I saw it. I dragged it outback (with help from my little girl and her little red wagon) and put it together. ALL BY MYSELF! It was very easy.
No jimmy-rigging necessary (which is what sometimes has to be done when you buy furniture online and have to put it together yourself).

What do you think?

All that's missing is a cushion. I have to find one.
I don't think it will be too hard. It's that time of year, so they're everywhere.

I even bought the little side table.
I am not messing around when it comes to my lounge time.

That's the book I have to read for my next book club meeting.
Have you ever read it? Is it good? Will I be able to finish it in time?

Our next meeting is in 4 weeks. I guess I should start it soon...
Now that I have the chair it should be easy. right?!

  1. My dear friend and fellow Gemini Book Club Member...I feel that if anyone can finish Bleak House before our next meeting it is you... Especially if you have that beautiful piece of furniture to read it in.

    Your blog is so cute and I want you to help me make mine cute (with room for pics) too! I think we should make a coffee blogging date asap!
