Breakfast in my carport

I wish I had a veranda to sit in, but I do not. I do have a patio in the back, but the view isn’t very interesting. So, every morning around 6:00 AM, I sit on a chair in my carport. It is 71F at this time, and I have to wear a sweater.

This is my breakfast, which consists of crackers covered with Guacamole and Spicy Hummus:

I gaze at the scenery.

This is my carport. That chair next to the red car is where I sit and watch the world go by:

When breakfast is over, I head back into the house before it gets too hot. It is expected to hit 87F today with high humidity. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

It is Summer in Hawaii, and the living is easy!

    Pleasant mornings in your diverse neighbourhood.

    That’s a nice start to the day, Gigi. And I remember all that work you guys did to your driveway last year, it still looks great. So what is David doing while you’re outside people watching? πŸ™‚

    That kind of heat day after day would drive me bonkers!

    Wish it was that warm at my place – it’s going to be about 45f/7c here at 6am tomorrow. Of course it’s our winter so we have to expect it.

    Your neighbourhood has a very international flavour to it πŸ™‚

    What a lovely way to spend the morning. Here we do about the same, only on the patio in the back while we watch the birds and squirrels in the trees. Morning coffee on the patio is very special because the rest of the day gets too hot in the summer.

    Love the idea of finger foods for breakfast. You have a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the people traffic. They are after all, Hawaiian wildlife:)

    I like your breakfast and fun people watching. We see a lot from our front windows in the house, it overlooks the road.
    We even saw an older man fall off his bike the other day and the ambulance came as he might have hurt his back! There he was lying on the road and people waving cars by. This never happens usually of course.

    We like to sit out front, too, instead of the back patio. There’s more to see, more people to say hello to. Also, it looks like your carport is a favorite stop for your neighbors!

    If I go out at six o’clock in the morning there are birds and a few cars but NO other people.

  13. Linda Reeder Says:

    It’s great that you get outside in the cool of the morning.

  14. Musings Says:

    I’m really glad it’s cooler where I live. That said, I have the ceiling fan on right now.

    I hate pigeons. They are pooping on and nesting under our solar panels.

    A wonderful way to start your day. Nice breakfast and watching the world go by is interesting. Looks like the birds are waiting for biscuits crumbs.

  16. DJan Says:

    Nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

    You reminded me of my last house where I sat on my front deck and watched the ocean at my door and the activity on the beach and water. Treasured moments.

  18. Debbie Says:

    Thank you for sharing your world.

  19. Joared Says:

    Much to be said for watching the world go by. You have shelter and shade and can enjoy the less warm temps of the day so sounds good to me. Plus, you get to greet some neighbors to start the day.

    I love what you see when you look out! And the hummus/guac looks great. I hope your daughter is recovering from Covid well with no after effects.
