  1. After seeing this warm and lovely picture, I started missing the porch at my parents house… So good to sit there on chilly summer evenings! 🙂


    • This is my first porch since 2006, and it is a much better one. I never knew how amazing a really nice porch is until 2 weeks ago, now I am such a convert. I agree-porch sitting is wonderful.

  3. Ah the liquid muse of scotch. The trick I’ve found is to drink past the point of feeling sleepy and then your hands, whether at a notebook or keyboard, are like lightning. Just be ready for some major editing at a later date.

    P.S. The porch is nice too. I wrote the first post from my blog on a porch.


    • I normally imbibe scotch after my work day is over, but perhaps I should try to turn it into a muse. That could be interesting!

      PS-The porch is a delight! I have not written a post from there yet, but plan on doing so very soon.
