Saturday Morning on the Porch Swing



E woke up early. I got up and got her a vaffle and told her I was going to go get some coffee (we were out) and come right back. She said: "I go with you, get coffee?" So I said: "Sure," and Melody rejoiced beneath the blankets.

We walked two blocks to Starbucks and got coffee and a blueberry muffin to share and sat outside enjoying the wispy morning clouds slinking down over the San Gabriel mountains. We met a dog with a blue sweater on. We met a woman from Georgia who sounded like she was from Georgia. We came back home and E insisted that I get mommy to come down and swing with us, and bring the "Pig Book." That's how it happened.

I can't believe you have to walk 2 blocks to a Starbucks. Here in civilized Seattle we have a coffee shop on every corner.

I love this! And I think it's okay if you have to walk 2 blocks to a chain coffeeshop. It makes me feel a little better about the west coast. We'll be in San Fran in September; hoping to fly via sky bus into LA and drive up. Hope, HOPE we can see you!

Glad Eleanor likes to read books in the swing like we did at the farm!
