Sweet Weekend from my Spring Porch
Today I am talking around the idea of a Spring Front Porch. So I write this note about my weekend I am seeing myself on a porch something like this.
Oh, yes or one like this, well more porches later...
We had a wonderful weekend with family over to celebrate our son in laws birthday. I cooked dinner. As requested my famous meatloaf, baked mac n cheese, and roasted potatoes. Melissa made his favorite cake, Fun Fetti. I know there are so many amazing cakes and that’s what he wants.
With Spring in the air we under the new weather plan. Tornado season. So we are checking the weather as we go to sit for dinner because our son tells us we are in for quite the night. Sure enough…. Well, it’s been damp and wet all day so we will check the weather later on to see what up by the time everyone is ready to leave, they may want to bunk down in the basement by the reports we are getting on the news.
Then during dinner we heard a HUGE BOOM!!! I thought it was the cat in the basement. I knew she was down there, and there were a stack of boxes, maybe they were knocked over. We played on the Wii. I bought a new game for us. Ever watch the show
“Big Balls” hehe “Wipe Out”? well that’s the new game. Lots of fun.
As the kids all went home Kevin opened the door to the garage and let out a Oh!!! The damp weather I was telling ya about, Well the tape to the seam on some of the sheet rock let loose. Nearly half our garage ceiling was all over the garage floor and car!! There was nothing up there nothing putting weight on it! It JUST FELL!
We did make it through the night. It was a bumpy ride. The closest to us was 3 miles away got hit and there are power lines and trees down all around. The schools are starting on 2 hour delay so they can get some clean up done and make sure streets are passable.
Ok, so on with some pretty Spring Porches
How sweet is this little garden porch? Take a book and enjoy some sweet tea out here!!
And finally I think I could watch the kids on bikes and say Hello to all the walkers while petting my kitty all from that pretty white wicker chair.
Happy Monday I hope you all have a wonderful week!
