Nowadays one requires a portable computer, not necessarily in a pink carrying case, a wireless signal and a charged battery. And a sleeping dog.
A little rain makes the freshly carpeted porch snug, and reduces the heat enough to make sitting out comfortable. Or sleeping out for a dog.
My house is small enough that even on a regular sized 100-foot by 60-foot lot there is room enough around the edges for mature trees to wave their fronds around.
Against the day that the empty lots on either side fill in we are growing vines to increase the cover.
A rainy afternoon and a pot of tea made for a good afternoon off.
But there was promise at dusk of a sunny day to come. That will drive the dog to sleep in the shady cool of the unnatural dehumidified air indoors.
