The Art Of The Outdoor Nap

The phrase "looking forward to" can not do justice to how I feel about one of my spring-early-summer rituals. The outdoor nap! On my porch I have a porch swing fitted out with a huge pillow at one end and a blanket folded up in fourths that fits it perfectly as a pad. My house faces exactly west and once spring really takes hold here in the northeast, the sun shines dirrectly on my porchswing in the late afternoon. I lay long-ways on my swing and gently rock in the sun and nap like a happy cat as the kids do their homework outside.
"Soon" I tell myself, "Very soon..."
