Autumn is here

We got a new couch recently and while at the furniture store, I spied some teakwood lounge chairs on the walk.

Almost dozing in my cozy new
lounge chair :)
Most of the deck chairs we've owned in the past were the cheap webbed ones that left plaid marks on your back when using them. They usually began to deteriorate in the parking lot of the store after purchase, and after a season or two, we'd sell the aluminum frames at a recycling place.

But the chairs we saw this time were not the cheap ones. They once made ships from teakwood so I knew these were sturdy.

At the store we haggled a bit on the price, but I walked out happy with two new loungers for the backyard.

I took one of them outside with a book and a frosty glass of sweet tea. After a few moments, I heard something squawking aloft. Shielding my eyes against the sun, I saw a V of geese heading south.

Today September 23,  which is the Autumnal Equinox so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised by the geese, but still, it's another sign that autumn is here.


  1. Indeed it is here. Our temps today were proof of it! It's my favorite time of the year.

  2. Hope you'll have some nice Autumn weather to enjoy your new teak lounge chair.
    The leaves are starting to change to a fiery red, yellow and orange here and although it's cold in the morning it's beautiful in the afternoon. My kind of weather.

  3. I hate the webbed chairs, too. I have wrought iron deck furniture. I bet yours is more comfortable.


  4. Gotta say, I loved the line 'They started to deteriorate in the parking lot!'

    Yep the Geese are heading south. Frankie Lane sang a song I have remeber since my child hood; My Heart Goes Where the Wild Good Goes", I think mine does, tome to head South with the Geese....

    Your line about how yard chairs began to deteriorate in the parking lot of the store made me think about bananas ripening in the car on your way home!!

  6. Your chairs sound great! I love outdoor chairs made from good woods...they last forever if taken care of every year. Enjoy them!
