So a little while ago, when I said that the back porch doubled our living space, I was SO not kidding.
This is the best bed in the house, its on wheelie rollers, so we can trundle it out under the stars every night.
This is our cozy seating area, because who can resist dining on the deck? You may note that our little candelabra (who looks disturbingly like Lumiere) has been de-tapered. That is because THIS happened when we were in LA.
And you know what, that isn't quite enough for me, I think y'all need to see the close up of its pitiful flaccid candle self. (With bonus arty shadows!) Enjoy!
So anywhoo, what all this outdoor livin' means is that this morning I woke up earlier than God. Seriously! See, straw one is that we're pretty bug free here most of the time, except for that 15 minutes immediately before the sun comes up. Then those skeeters gotta get their gettin' while the gettin's good! And then there's that whole sky getting bright thing, did you know that happens BEFORE the sun actually comes up?! And well the final straw is those charming little hummingbirds that I spend an hour every three days washing and filling feeders for. We seem to live on the I-5 of Hummingbirds, the Autobahn of Hummingbirds, the Indianapolis Hummingbird Speedway for pete's sake! They ride in on their little mini Harleys and souped up Datsuns and squabble amongst themselves as they pull up a stool at the Red Nectar Bar. I guess it could be disturbing, if they just weren't so frickin' cute. Squeak, flap. Buzz buzz, hummmm. Squeak.
