I’m on the Brink of Being a Swinger …

I watched as the guy who has become our friend … build the frame on the back porch for the new swing another friend gave me for Mother’s Day.

He used 4×4’s, one for each side … one at the top. Sturdy bolts, chains, swing … it’s one of the nicest swings I’ve ever seen put up. I’m proud it’s ours.

He’s very good with anything he builds… he built a boat that is used on the ocean … a huge boat! The boat takes out fishing parties today.

I look forward to swinging … Skip and I.  Swinging, talking … relaxing on the summer evenings. I was thinking about the fall evenings, also. Even on winter evenings one could grab a little blanket, come sit on the porch to swing.  Back and forth, back and forth … soothing, comforting.  Nice!  Sort of like being rocked as a baby 🙂

I have the nicest swing of all times. It’s built well. We will get it painted in the future, add happy-colored cushions.  I’m thinking I’ll paint it a Italian sage green color.  I’ll paint the other porch furniture to match.

I’m ready to make the porch cozy, comfortable.  The swing is the perfect addition!  I’m on the brink of being a swinger! 🙂
