Ode To The Sunporch.....











I felt that yesterdays post, did not do our Sunporch it's rightful justice...

The pictures I posted showed it in it's demolition mode...

Perhaps some of you [newer peeps] had not seen pictures...and my praise...

For our sunporch...

It is a place to drink morning coffee..and look out at the Lake...

While the bagels are toasting...

It is a perfect place for a strategical game of Scrabble....or Chess...

It is a perfect place to sit...enjoy a cocktail...while dinner is cooking...

EIther thru the pass-thru in the kitchen...

Or...across the lawn on the BBQ....

In the evenings it is perfect for dining...with no buggies....

With a fresh bouquet of flowers from the garden bounty...

The music from the stereo beckoning you for a dance or two....

Shelter from the rain...and still be "outside"...on a warm evening...

We have already replaced the floor to the Lakeside...over the years...from water damage...

And.......I have painted it at least 100 times....never a bother...

'Cause it just makes it more beautiful...worth all the work...

It is perfect for the sun to beam in at the end of the day...

And...share the sunset with a few friends.... 

  

But it will be worth all the work...


After all...

It is the perfect place to do almost anything you could dream up!!!!

I hope I have made a Sunporch lover out of you ....as well as me...


Enjoy this rainy, warm Sunday....

A bit of blue sky peeking thru right now...

On the menu this evening...

       Summer fresh pasta...

          How appropriate...in honor of the under construction Sunporch!!!


                          Cheers!  :o)  [cheers to the sunporch.....tee hee hee]

  4. Every home should be required to have porch. I think families would be happier if homes had porches. :-)
