Front Porch

I was anxious to check out the shrubbery this morning and did not notice anything different about the house.

The three little bushes the plant set out yesterday are all drooping.  Now, I am wondering if they are getting the water they should be getting from the irrigation system.

The gardenia blossom had opened and I stuck my nose in to inhale it.

Andy pointed out the railing around the front porch.

Andy is so thrilled with the refrigerator; he added ice to his water bottle.

When we returned to the house in the afternoon, I paused to take a picture of the front porch with the railing.

It was cold inside.  For most of the past week, it was hot and the workers had all the windows open. I looked in the garage to see that the Sun Kool man had finished and closed up the unit. We had noted a few days ago that they had installed a new thermostat.

I took more pictures of the front porch on the way out, just because I was so excited about it and thinking of how I would place a few chairs and tables for front porch sitting with the neighbors.

The only thing we can think of that needs doing now is installing the washing machine.  We are almost lamenting the fact that the house is done.  We have become accustomed to a surprise or two every day. What are we going to marvel over now?

    There will be the gradual building of the community around you to look forward to.

      Yes, we love to make new friends; that was one of the best parts of our boating life. I am already monitoring the progress on other houses in the area.

      I agree, Peter. They’re embarking on an entirely new adventure in their lives and I can foresee an unending list of possibilities as to what might be encompassed. The completion of their new home is just cracking the cover of a limitless story of newness.

      I just saw a post on the neighborhood facebook page about there being no recycled water. That may explain the plant droop. I may take a pitcher over there tomorrow and give them a drink.

      I agree. It was one of the reasons I chose this house plan. Love me a porch.
