|What's Missing From This Picture?|
If you said, "A dining table", you'd be correct!
When I wrote, "Clear the small dining table" on my to do list, last night, this is not quite what I meant to do:
|The Now Discarded Dining Table|
This morning, I cleared off all the items that were on the small dining table in the family room. I had been doing some paperwork there and I had a box of files to be put away in the new filing cabinet that I had got from neighbor T and a box of miscellaneous bits and pieces to be put way. I put the files away, put the basket of current papers to be read (insurance and local elections related brochures and the current bills) away on the small shelf unit, and put away the bits and pieces that were in the box. Then, I wiped down the top of the table.
|The Poor Table|
I will ask M to help me break it up, although I'm wondering if I can use those legs or the table top for something! Maybe I can build a new frame with some proper wood and attach the legs to it to support the table top!
I guess I will be looking for another small dining table. I don't have to have one - there's the big dining table in the more formal dining area, but, there is a ceiling light fixture hanging down where the table used to be in the family room and it seems weird to not have a table there!
In the meantime, I moved the old tea trolley/cart that I kept in the corner of the family room (had been using it as a side table for one of the sofas and storing my canning jars on the shelf underneath, which is actually a removable tray) and put it under the light fixture to act as a temporary table! With the two drop leaves raised, there's room for three chairs:

I told neighbor S that many of my blog readers wish they could have a neighbor like her and she laughed.
