Steve is out of town, visiting the nice people who pay him to go tippy-tap at his computer all day. I thought for sure that today would be abysmal as a result, but in fact I was so resigned to that certainty that it was entirely lovely instead. Tomorrow we'll just have to try harder.
As predicted, the charm of eating off the floor wore off rapidly in the face of rampaging, food-fisted baby. So for the moment we are dining at an end table, because we have one.
The whole arrangement is at about knee height, and Jane is very pleased to put her feet on the table at any moment when she is not actively engaged in eating.
Full sized plates are not possible, as you see. At larger meals we pull up a couple of footstools to hold the serving dishes. All is whisked away between times to allow us to appreciate the calm blue ocean of space, and also so there can be an end table where one is expected.
Note to prospective dinner guests: a somewhat more humane camping table will be arriving soon.
In the meantime, Jane has composed an interpretive dance to convey the poignancy and humor of her odd-tabled state.
