THIS is my porch: (5/17/13)
|This was our porch in the fall 2012|
|This was the porch at Christmas 2012|
|Looking out from the porch in winter (we live in Florida...) 2013|
|And this is our porch now, in the spring (5/17/2013) SEE UPDATE BELOW|
|And THIS is ONE of the inhabitants of our porch in spring! Isn't he charming?|
|He started to show us his "colors", note the red throaty look peeping out from under his chin...He thinks we want to get cozy with him...or he may think we want to fight...|
|No Porch, no flowers or shrubs...and lots of bright, hot sun in the afternoon (western exposure) Thank the Lord for those sycamore trees in the summertime...but they are bare all winter...|
and it still gets pretty hot out there!
Afterthoughts: Where do YOU like to go to relax in the early mornings, evenings, or during the day if you are home? Or, if you work, do you have a special place where you can take a mini-vacation break to rest for a few minutes away from the computer, phone and busy-ness of the day? If you don't have such a place in your life now, look for one...create a space just for you and your mate, friends, neighbors, or you alone...a place to reflect, rest, and re-create...and listen to the sounds of God's world around you. Ahhhhh....just breathe! (that was a "Calgon take me away" moment, created just for you and me.)
Blessings to you today....
|This picture of the front of our house added on 5/2/2015...quite a difference!|
Over the past couple of months we have been working on our front porch...and today I can say that my dreams of a large country porch are finally coming true!
Now I hope someday YOU will come and sit a spell with us too!
