Porches

There are three.

 

The Kitchen Porch

The porch off the kitchen with Victor in the foreground. There is a door from the kitchen leading to the porch.

Main floor bathroom windows from the inside. They are not blue.

You can see the windows from the outside on the porch wall.

 

The Porch That Goes Nowhere

This little porch is on the other side of the kitchen windows. It goes nowhere. Originally there was a door from the kitchen to this porch. Thinking we would never use this door we replaced the door with windows. So this is a place for children to hide. Or whatever.

 

The Front Porch

The front porch. Which I love. You will notice that it has a slight tilt to it. Yup. Kinda think it will likely stay that way. It grows on you.

I have.

Three of the four original Angels were back yesterday. Not Carmen.

But Joe and Victor and Walter.

There was grading. The big pile of topsoil was spread to dry out. They carefully avoided the brave scilla.  There was stone and levelling done in the garage. There was sewer pipe finished off in the basement. It was a busy place.

Window Seat

All my life I’ve wanted a window seat. And now there is one.

Or more accurately – there will be one. A bit hard to see.

So close your eyes. Poof!

Something like this.

Not me.  Here’s where my early morning coffee wanderings took me this morning. An old house, circa 1890 something. Somewhere in the southern US. Which explains the tiles on the porch. OMG the tiled porch. No possibility you could tile a porch like this in Ontario? Right?
