For our Christmas photo, I wanted to buy umbrellas that represented Houston’s sports teams, several of whom–Rockets, Astros, and Texans–had feature roles in making 2017 meaningful for us. Alas, I couldn’t find any, so instead I bought the three oversized black umbrellas that are in the photo.
Before the flood, my walking stick I’d gotten one year at the Renaissance Festival, and my father’s cane were propped in a corner of the library. Then after the new umbrellas came, I decided I’d like an umbrella stand, so Debby and I went shopping yesterday to find one. And I lost my mind and bought six dining room chairs at my favorite antique/retro store. I’ll share photos later when they are delivered.
Debby did find an umbrella stand for me to purchase, too. Mission successful!
