Delicious Dark Chocolate Truffles
Aren't they cute!
Snoozing on the Front Porch
We had amazing weather while they were here. Mid 70's, probably, sunny, gentle breeze - who could ask for more.
There's about a 10' drop-off on the south
and southeast end of the porch
as you look straight ahead in the photo
The vintage chairs were found on the property when we moved here and were repainted last summer. The quilt that you see on the single nap bed was a $4.00 find at GoodWill. Who would not love flowers and bird houses? It's a queen size quilt, so I have folded it in half for that single bed.

The berries on the cranberry bush behind the glider
are orange right now, turning red.
The porch is in the shape of an L. This is the part of the porch that we are planning to screen in. There will be a door where the window (see photo above) is currently located. There will be no access to the screen room from the other part of the porch, only from the house. I know all about kids and running the circle of the house. We have that on the inside of our house. I don't need it on the porch as well.
My new melodic chimes, a birthday present!!
And we had a real deluge (about 2" of rain) on Saturday afternoon.
Can you see the rain pouring off the roof of the porch?

I suspect that there are a lot of green beans that need picking today. I hope there are enough to completely fill a canner.
