Summer Countryside and Southern Porches

Fridays are usually the day I visit my parents.  Sometimes, I miss a week or we have to schedule our visit for a different day, due to doctor appointments, etc.  I often end up spending three or four hours with my parents because it's a 45-minute drive one way.  Yesterday was no exception; I was there from about 12:30 to 4:30.  We ate lunch when I arrived, and then I stayed with my dad so my mom could run a few errands.  
While I was there, I took some pictures of their front porch all dressed up for summer.  :)  My mom just got her wicker porch furniture painted white; her dear friend and neighbor, Susie, painted all the wicker pieces. We think it looks so pretty!  The furniture was originally a natural, tan color and it just didn't show up very well on the porch.  Now it looks cheerful and summery.  :D

Summer Kitchen

It's officially summer, yes?  Whew, is it hot here!  It's supposed to be in the mid-to-high 90's all week, with high humidity.  Welcome to the south!  At this point, the catch phrase around here becomes, "Hot enough for you?"  After hearing this so many times, no one even bothers to reply.  😜  It's almost like the dead of winter because everyone stays inside, where it's air-conditioned, as much as possible.   
Today, I want to share a few pictures of my summer kitchen.  I've made a few little changes in here since the big renovation in 2012, namely a new dishwasher, new replacement windows, and wood floors.  All those things were money well-spent, and we still love our kitchen.

Charleston's Unitarian Cemetery

This is the second part of a post on the Gateway Walk of Charleston, which Hal and I did back in April of this year.  Today I'm sharing the last of three cemeteries that were part of the Gateway Walk.  You can find the first post here.

The Gateway Walk of Charleston

Happy June everyone!  How are things in your part of the world?  The sun is finally shining in a blue sky here, and I'm a happy camper.  :D
