It’s been a little warmer than normal the last couple days and although I don’t like to turn the air conditioning on this early in the year, I admit I’ve had to. Last night I was dreaming of how nice it would be to have my very own sleeping porch during the summer months to enjoy the evening breezes while dozing. A screened sleeping porch of course, so I don’t have to deal with mosquitoes and creepy crawlers!
