Favorite Spot

Our porch is one of my favorite spots in the house. 

My girls love love love being outside, so this is a frequently used perch. Often, I’ll rock Lily while Patsy rides her tricycle, picks flowers, runs like a nut, climbs the stairs, or sits with me while we wait for Joe to get home. It’s also a favorite spot among family for visits. Before we moved in, it was our most regularly used dining room, though then it was a makeshift table with drywall scraps, pizza boxes, and metal folding chairs. It’s also served well as a place to set up the saw horses for door sanding/priming. I wonder what other folks used it for in the 100 years before we had it.

Someday, I want to build a swing like the one my grandpa built that’s on my parent’s front porch. The darker patio furniture will hopefully live on a to-be-redone deck in the back. I might stain/seal the rockers and coffee table (a house warming gift from my parents), or we may just let them weather. One certain addition in the future: anything and everything to stop the darn mosquitoes from using us for dinner. Anybody have luck with certain plants, candles, lasers to help with that problem? All suggestions welcome!
