Benjamin Franklin apparently invented a library chair that is hinged and folds over the top of itself to become a step ladder. Clever, and typical of the great man. I started down a Google rabbit hole of looking for chairs like that for sale online and they are legion. Some of them are quite beautiful. Not that I am shopping or need any more chairs here now, but someone in our group might find one of these useful and have a local builder or furniture store with them in stock.

The furniture I need to pay attention to now is the sofa, that I haven't covered with the dog-resistant ugly cover this year. I lieu of that access have a number of thick dog beds on the floor (and am not letting them into the one carpeted room). I redid the seat on the leather chair (now covered with upholstery samples) so I'm not letting the lab up on that either unless it's covered. It all depends on whether they stay on the floor or start demanding access to furniture in cold weather. Negotiations are ongoing.

My phone weather app Weather Underground let me program the conditions I want in place for walking the dogs. Temperature, wind conditions, daylight, etc, and it tells me if the next day has those conditions. I need to pay attention to that more and get out walking. It was handy to remind me about walking times morning and evening during the heat of the summer, now it tells me the warmest part of the day during winter months.
