This weekend I cleaned off the back porch: I washed cushions, scrubbed the grill, swept out grass and debris, and washed chalk drawings off of the pavement. Then I went full Mormon and cut some flowers off of a tree to make it seem more homey (watching out for rattlesnakes the whole time, of course). And wow. I just used the word HOMEY on this website. Feel free to poke me in the eye with a dirty finger.
