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. ❤️
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.
It looks very comfortable and cozy.
Ah, you have given me porch-envy again, Jennie! 🙂
(62 degrees is almost high summer over here. 🙂 )
Best wishes, Pete.
We are fortunate to have a small house with a big yard, the opposite of what most people seem to want. The porch is comfy living outside. When the heat rolls in, like this weekend, it is the evening escape. Best to you, Pete.
I am with you! I much prefer a comfy home and a huge (acreage) yard. Happy for you! InJoy!
Thanks, Ren. 🙂
It looks warm and inviting!
It is. 🙂
It’s always wonderful to be outdoors!
Enjoy that porch while the weather allows.
I think you’re right Jennie. A porch is a comforting place.
Indeed it is! I’ll be there tonight and tomorrow to escape the approaching heat wave.
hmmm, sounds like a science question, teacher!
enjoy the change in seasons.
Good question. Hmm… Humidity? Or as Dan says, the atmosphere?
YOur porch looks very nice, Jennie. I would like to sit there too.
Thank you, Robbie. I would love to have you over here with me. Really! 🙂
Thank you, Luanne. 🙂
Jennie, it’s a lovely porch, and with those cheery lights. Thanks for this glimpse of part of your charming home. Happy weekend hugs.
Thanks, Teagan. I’ll have to post this from the yard, too. Happy weekend to you! 😀
what a lovely haven!
I looks a piece of Heaven Jennie.. ENJOY.. ❤
Thank you, Sue. My favorite place. 🙂
I can see why Jennie.. xx
Yep! You answered your own question! Thanks for sharing
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!!!
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.
I’m so glad you like a porch, too. It’s a wonderful place to be. Best to you, Marlene.
Good guess, Jennie! Could also be that the inside air is trapped. The porch might feel colder if the wind kicked up 🙂
I think it’s because the porch makes me feel warm, in my heart. ❤️
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. 🙂
Good point! 🙂
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!
I think you’re right, Annika. Many thanks.
Beautiful, Jennie. What a lovely place to sit! ❤
Thank you, Diana. 🙂
Good for you!
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. . .
Than you, Robin. It’s my favorite place in the house. 🙂
What a beautiful porch!
