The Allure of a Picnic


I can barely resist a canopy of leaves
offering a shady oasis from our
Texas sizzling summer.

I feel a bit like Golilocks as I
stumble onto the perfect place
for an afternoon retreat.

A chair...just right.
A lounging sofa...just right.
And a bowl of porridge...not too hot,
not too cold, but...just right.

There I go dreaming again ;-)
So, as I sleep please tip toe over to
Susan's porch because she is
BETWEEN NAPS on the PORCH
