Reading Teacher Writes

Sharing a love of literacy with fellow readers and writers

Slice of Life Tuesday: Room(s) With View(s)


LOL! I really did laugh out loud this week. I was reading Facebook posts of several friends that uploaded pictures from vacation hotspots. Paris, Hawaii, Florida, Colorado, you name it, there was a picture. Then I came across a picture from the comments under one of the photos: it was a front door on a nice brick apartment (or townhome?) building, a simple landscape tree, and a little grass. The person noted something along the lines of, “This is the view from MY front door.”


But I was really excited that day about my front-door view, because we had overgrown and ugly (!) bushes torn out, and new landscaping rocks poured into the space. It made my front door and porch look so much more open and welcoming! I love it!

So as a tribute to vacations, I’ll re-share a few past vacation photos, as we all celebrate summer:

And I will add my current summer vacation view — home:

Have a great summer! It’s almost AUGUST already!

  1. I’m really not ready for it to be August, as the summer, as summers always do, is whizzing by! Your post reminds me to bask in vacationing at home and do some of the leisure stuff that we’d do on vacation in the comfort of our own home. Love your pictures, though.

  2. You made me laugh! I, too, have been looking at everyone’s pictures (mostly beaches this summer) while I spent my summer getting a rental house ready to sell and teaching adult classes in my district. Your bench and rocks look great!

  3. That made me laugh too.

    Not sure the view from my front door is anything great, but the view from my back door is pretty nice. (I love our backyard since it’s wetlands. While it’s kinda buggy, that wouldn’t show up in a photo!)
