Here we go.
The screened porch is up. Once again, we won the race with the neighborhood mosquitoes.
Actually, we’re about two weeks later than usual. This year, we had to replace the railing around the deck which finally gave way after 15 years of deep snow. Plus, we had to stain the new wood. Lots of huff and puff for our age.
As porches go, ours is not real big. Only 8’ by 16’. But it is our window to the world. Now we can begin our big drift into summer.
Our daily bookend begins with coffee and the newspaper in the morning and closes with wine and a little opera in the evenings. In between, we’ll enjoy children on bikes and trikes filling the sidewalk all day long.
Rattan, here we come.
