eye rolling, orange chairs, and edamame

so... here you have it ... a peep at my house ... at dinner time .... i usually try to have dinner ready at 6.30 .... at 6.15ish? the doorbell rang ... it was groovy painter wendy delivering my painted furniture ..... all six of us ran to the door (me, he, three and the dog) .... the chairs! the chairs! she delivered the chairs! the carrots, grapes, strawberries, edamame and broccoli were already on the table .... the ribs, the potatoes and the asparagus were still being warm in the kitchen .... 
we took the delivery of ten chairs, one turquoise table (another blog post), and and orange desk (yet another blog post) .... and then sat down to dinner .... my children were ravenous but i said WAIT, WAIT ... let's appreciate the chairs ..... they make me so happy i could cry (i was being melodramatic on purpose ...no teariness at all, actually) .... "they make me so happy i could cry" ....and i got FOUR sets of simultaneous eye rolls .... a few groans ... and a pass the barbq sauce ... 

and above ... a post dinner shot .... pretty groovy, huh?

So!So!Groovy! (At first I wrote "SoSoGroovy, which - I think - could have been interpreted as "moderately groovy" which is not what I meant at all...

But it makes me sad because I am in the midst of Un-Groovying my own colorful house to sell it. "New Taupe" and "Groovy" do not occur naturally in the same sentence.♥
