Life on the front porch

I started my day sitting in a wicker rocker on my front porch, book in hand, shearling slippers on my feet, big mug of tea at my side.

Early-afternoon found me returning to that same rocker, book still in hand, slippers still on my feet, big glass of iced tea at my side.

As the sun set, I was back in the rocker, closing the book because of the darkness closing in, slippers still on my feet, and I sat through the sunset while drinking the last sips of a really kickass good martini.

The porch was what made us fall instantly in love with this house, from its wraparound coziness to the arts & crafts feel of its tapered pillars and low-pitched roof. And we still love it, especially on days like today where we can enjoy the last bits of this fall's unseasonably warm weather.

It was a good day.

So glad you had a day like this to savor! One of my favorite ways to spend the day is with a good book & something to drink-no matter what the drink is! Your selection sounds perfect. Here's hoping the weather holds a little longer (!) and we can find the time to spend a little of it together! To more beautiful fall days- Cheers!

P.S. I so enjoy reading your blog! TTYS! (;-D
