This is long overdue....but here is our porch during the summer months. Between the dog hair, all of the rain, pollen, and saw dust from making the window wall, I have had my hands full with trying to keep it clean. I have to admit, I gave up for a month! Isn't that awful? I was telling the hubby yesterday that our home is beautiful on the inside, but the outside was beginning to look like Sanford and Son. So....I rolled up my sleeves, pinned back my hair and got to work!
I don't know why I've always had my chairs facing the stairwell, go figure. It came to me to face them the other way facing the swing...now why didn't I ever think of that before?! Now it's perfect for sitting on the porch!
I really need to wash the house down. It is filthy and that drives me insane!
Most of my flowers are dying off because of too much rain, so I rescued what was left and put them all up here.
Maybe I can keep my cushions out for awhile since the sun is shining beautifully today.
See how perfect this is for visiting and relaxing? I am still scratching my head on why I've never done this before. Oh well, I guess it's one of those senior moments I hear everyone talking about....
One of my ferns died...always a sad day when that happens. I love ferns! Mammaw did too...
You may be surprised...but this is where I do the girls hair coloring. They pull up the stool and this is where I mix everything and work from. Those fumes will kill a person if you're not outside! Can you imagine what people think when they are driving by?
I love to come out and swing....there is something about having a swing on a porch. I grew up with one on Mammaw's front porch and I have so many sweet memories of sleeping, playing and courting.
(don't tell the hubby that I courted before him)
It's a great day to enjoy the sun!
So there is our porch...now I must go play with this little booger because he is climbing the walls and ready to pounce!
It's almost Friday...I can rest then because the girls can play with him!
