Readathon update #4 and Walkin' & Snappin' mini-challenge


For this mini-challenge, Kim over at Page after Page wanted us to take a break. go for a short walk and take a picture of what we saw.

Love the porch! It seems like a great place to read. Keep up the good work!

The porch does seem like a great place to live! I'm in a sunny area too, and have been considering sitting outside for some reading. No comfy chairs out there, though.

Happy reading!

Good job, I'm on three coffees, one tea and one coke by now!

Reading on that porch must be so cozy.

What I wouldn't give for a front porch like yours! I LOVE it. Thanks for playing with my first ever mini-challenge.
*smiles and happy continued reading to you*

The porch is nice and the chair is the whipped cream on the banana split.
