Sorry for the long siesta. I was in Malibu on vacation and although I took my ipad2 with me, I discovered it does not play well with wordpress, so I could not post.

This week I’m preparing for installation at the Dream sleeping porch 11 300x270 Siestas & Sleeping PorchesHouse but as I sit here writing, I am looking out to our back deck and wishing we had a sleeping porch.

Ahhhhhh . . . a sleeping porch. There is something so old fashioned about them, don’t you think?

Doesn’t this well-appointed sleeping porch¬†from Georgia Carlee¬†just beckon you to take a siesta (which means afternoon nap?)

Down the road we are planning on redoing sleeping porch with four beds by lake 300x225 Siestas & Sleeping Porchesour back deck. We plan to add a second level to bring it down closer to the pond.

Hmmmm. . . . wouldn’t it be wonderful to build a small, screened sleeping porch so we could sleep to the sounds of the spring peepers?

My nieces and nephews would have a blast being entertained by the summer fireflies.
