The Front Porch View-July 2019

The Front Porch View July, 2019 ISSUE

 Hot off the press!


July (my definition, not Webster’s)  – when the weather finally catches up with the season. The thermometer will reach above 90 today. I had to laugh as I am already seeing folks longing for pumpkin everything and cool fall temps. The summer sun has me yearning for snow too…in a cup, smothered in chocolate, marshmallow in the middle, large! Maybe you fall wishers could get one in pumpkin…is that a thing? Well if it isn’t it should be. I know pumpkin ice cream has been around awhile so rather than wishing summer away, how about you run over to your local ice cream shoppe and pick up a big ole cone of it to cool off with.  As for me, I’m going to enjoy some fresh cut, ice cold watermelon, a snowball here and there, meat and garden fresh veggies on the grill, concerts in the park, fireworks and all things SUMMER!  Drop me a comment letting me know what your summer favorites are; I am always open to your “cool” ideas.
