    Ready for Spring!

    I was looking thru my photos and found this one taken last year of my sister on my screen porch. We take the sewing machine out there & enjoy the weather. I think it's supposed to get to 10 degrees today...
    Usually like the cold weather, but I'm ready for spring!

    I could go to sleep out there. With the exception of cooking and bathing, I would spend my whole day out there weather permitting.

    Ditto to all of the above. I'm also ready to see Spring. Will be taking the camper up to the campground in Harbor Beach in April. I set up a screen room so that I can sew outside. People come by to see what I'm working on, and also just to chat. Enjoy being outdoors.

    If we didn't have winter, we wouldn't appreciate spring. Come on Spring!

    The porch is composite decking & aluminum. We enlarged & screened in a small porch several years ago. I had them put in electric outlets several places. Then I went to look for a large teak/outdoor wood table. They wanted a zillion dollars! I looked on craig's list for a Danish table like we have in our DR, the legs are solid teak. Found one for $100. We cover it when it's on the deck (that big thing behind my sister is the cover). In the winter, we bring it inside.

    That is a great looking porch. Move it out here to Southern California and we would both be sewing on it. Going to be in the 80s all next week. With no winter, we will probably have lots of fires again.

    Beautiful porch! My Dh is a farmer and is outside all of the time and he said that he has been seeing lots of flocks of geese flying north - so hope that means that winter is about over!!!!!

    I'm sitting inside the house in Northern Indiana. Nepture is raging outside with a chill wind. Thermometer says 27 but the wind chill is so low the Amish are calling me to rescue them. Two so far. And one was already sick. I took a Vit C. The wind is so strong it is howling through the trees. I can't believe what those poor folks in Mass. are going to get. I have seen 5 dead skunks on the road and a pair of mating foxes. Spring has got to be close.

    Beautiful porch! At 4:00 p.m. I was in the car, 5 degrees and I don't want to know the chill factor. Wind is blowing hard but still not as bad as last winter here. Waiting for spring too!

    Very nice porch! It has been 80 degrees here for a couple weeks. Don't know what is going on! We need some more rain or something or this summer the forest will be too dry and not good for fires.
