Place of Peace

We cleaned the screened side porch today, washed all the is almost porch season.
If you have never experienced the joy of sitting on a screened porch, come on down and spend some time.  The ceiling fan turns slow, just a gentle breeze.  The old glider was a my grandmother's, a perfect spot for an afternoon nap.  The table has seen paint, glue, glitter, play dough and every imaginable arts and crafts project known to our nieces and nephews.  The old yellow chair is the perfect place to sit and read.  I painted the floor cloth several years ago, but it has aged well.
That porch is one of my most favorite spots on earth.  I think every house should have one.  It is my place to sit in stillness, listen to the birds and the water that flows in the is a place of peace.

  1. I agree, everyone should have a place like that inside or outside of their home. A place where they are at peace with their thougts.
