As I was sitting out on my screened porch this morning, I had to smile, realizing how simple of a pleasure this room has become. FINALLY feeling like Spring is here to stay, I cleaned things up from the winter and the BEST room in the house is in full use!!
I considered getting new furniture out there this year, and then realized, what I already have , has a alot more miles on it, serves its purpose very well, and the tiny chips on the wicker as well as the quilted covers I use for the pads only adds to the warmth and character of the room. Right?? I convinced myself, and obviously my little poodle has no problem with it either. :)
It is where I go to find peace and quiet in an otherwise stressful day. A place to decompress, a place to collect my thoughts, or best of all, a place to have uninterrupted conversation when others join me here. I have had the deepest conversations with my teenagers in this room. No distractions other than the birds chirping. A perfect place. Sometimes, I have to even SNEAK in there, and no doubt, if the dog knows I am going that direction, she is right on my heels. Guarding me from any other 4 legged canines that might walk on our sidewalk!!!
It is also the room that my customers come through to get into my salon. Funny how I have actually had customers come up to an hour EARLY for their appointment, and ask if I mind they just sit on the porch and wait. 🙂 a porch swing is on the opposite side of the room.
Yeah, I think the furniture out there suits my needs just fine…..atleast for another year.
