Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.
July 19th - porch sitting
Come sit on the porch with me. The drinks are cold and the friendships free.
I’m blessed to have what I call the sun porch here at my house. It’s really an enclosed patio. I spend a lot of hours on the porch. Sometimes just sitting watching the world go by and sometime I read or work on a project I’ m doing.
My favorite time of day to enjoy the porch is early on summer mornings. There is usually a gentle breeze blowing even on the hottest of days when it’s early. Just after the sun rises and before the noon sun heats it up.
I do keep an old box fan out there just in case it gets hotter than I like, but really it is one of the nicest, most comfortable rooms in my home. I got the patio furniture back when I had a camper and used to spend a lot of time sitting on the deck there in the woods. I checked out most every chair to make sure it was comfortable. They not only swivel but they also rock. Rocking is my little way of making sure I get some exercise every day. Ha!
It’s a lovely way to spend a morning and I can recommend it ! I may be retired, but I’m not retired from life. There are so many ways to enjoy it. And my favorite place on a summer morning is the porch.
Life is better on the porch...
