Spring days like today...

Spring days like today make me look forward to Summer porches
and outdoor living. Some of my fondest childhood memories
include afternoons spent stringing beans with my grandmother
on her shaded, double-decker porch. We would eat salted
oranges, wipe our hands on her apron, and go back to
stringing the beans that rested in one of those
vintage metal colanders on her lap.
