Why does 62 degrees feel delightful on my open porch, yet freezing cold inside?  Me thinks it’s the porch, not the temperature, that feels so good.  A piece of heaven, I guess. ❤️


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    I think you’re right Jennie. A porch is a comforting place.

    enjoy the change in seasons.

    Aren’t front porches wonderful. We don’t have one but if we did, then I’d find the perfect chair to sit there and have a fudgsicle!!!

  15. I so agree. I bought my manufactured home because it had a wonderful front porch. I love sitting out there and don’t do it enough. Love the porch.

    Good guess, Jennie! Could also be that the inside air is trapped. The porch might feel colder if the wind kicked up 🙂

    I’m with you on that question Jennie. But I suppose it’s like a swimming pool – water in the 70s feels ice cold when you get in, yet outside temps in the 70s is ideal. 🙂

    Ahh…such an inviting porch! I think we are happy to accept cooler temperatures outdoors just for the love of being close to nature but expect warmer inside!

  19. Beautiful, Jennie. What a lovely place to sit! ❤

    This is a beautiful porch, Jennie. The temperature is nice and not too cool or too warm, just right: maybe a breeze will come through. . .
