Friday night when the power was off, there was still plenty of light outside . . enough light to knit, but there wasn’t much light inside. I commented that it sure would be nice to have some furniture on the porch! That was not a good comment. We bought some furniture in February or March and it was still sitting in the boxes on the front porch. The chairs had to be put together. I’m not real sure what we were waiting for but Saturday morning, fairly early, Vince was out putting together the chairs.
The plastic was still on the cushions when I took the photo. Vince decided he wanted a table where we could eat outside if we want so yesterday we went shopping for more porch furniture. It’s all on sale and there was still a pretty good selection. Here’s the table we ended up with.
Pretty inviting, huh? With the fans, it’s comfortable out there til about 11:00 in the mornings but then it doesn’t cool down til about 8 p.m. Fall’s coming though and I think we’ll spend a lot of time on the porch.
We also got a glider with cushions and it didn’t get put together. I think the plan for it is to go under these trees so we can sit and watch the chickens.
See the big gray bucket on its side there behind the trees? That’s the chicken jail. Otis spent some time in there Friday afternoon. I thought after the way he acted that he might not be with us today but so far, he’s been a good boy since he got out of jail on parole! Poor Otis. He is so funny to watch but he really needs an attitude adjustment!

Love the furniture… my favorite place is our deck.. this year with the heat not spending enough time there.
Looks very inviting! We love to spend as much time as possible on our deck – spring, summer, and fall!
i agree that really does look inviting. I’ll bet that Vince will break it in between his chores outside very soon. a nice comfortable seat in the shade with a breeze and a nice cool drink—he’ll look at you and say “Why didn’t we do this before!”
Judy, your big back porch looks purt’ near to heaven on earth to this missing-Texas gal … enjoy it! (And thanks for sharing, as always.)

I love your porch–and the patio furniture will make it like having an extra room.

Porch sitting is one of my favorite things to do……
Saturday night we had a terrific storm so we sat on the porch and watched the light show………….
Hope you get to enjoy more time just sitting… (but I did put a lamp on the porch for sock knitting……..)

Great porch- all it needs is a mini fridge. The furniture is so inviting, you may get company that won’t leave! Enjoy your porch.
