Gliding through the holidays!

Gliding through the holidays the Charleston way…

Fred and I were out walking a few weeks ago, it was a beautiful sunny day, I saw a man gliding through the holidays in the coolest way… Love his reflection! The marsh was beautiful, the cloud reflections were so cool, and the sun was setting – it was warm, but not hot. A lot of people out and about. A day that makes you truly appreciate where you live.

Pretty as a picture…

Bowens Island (Restaurant) – Charleston, SC

I love to take this photo (have taken it in the past)… we were at Bowens Island back in October, the sun was setting as we were finishing dinner. I had my phone with me and snapped a few fabulous photos. (How could they not be fabulous when the setting is literally jaw dropping)? The marsh grass, the trees, the sunset, pure heaven!

Classic Pot Roast – Divine!

Classic Pot Roast – Perfect on a chilly day!

We don’t eat a lot of red meat. We go weeks without any and don’t think a thing about it. However, once the weather turns cool (oh, how I love these days!), the comforting smell of a pot roast in the oven sounds so good! It’s fairly quick to throw to together, and then you just let the oven work its magic! #youdontevenneedaknife #meltslikebutter

Palm at Sunset… Charleston!

We are so fortunate…

A sunset walk around the block, this palm looks like it commands attention. So, I had to stop and snap a photo. The sky was even more brilliant. I love how the tree and shrubs appear dark against the fading sunset and blue sky. This is a magical time of year in Charleston. So thankful for relief from the humidity!

Charleston, SC – A Quick Weekend Walk…

Charleston, SC

Beautiful window boxes, aren’t they? Wonderful color selection against the pale yellow of this home. Between the sun, the shadows, beautiful colors and those palms… this is just a tiny taste of Charleston. It’s such a pleasure to roam the streets (both downtown and in other areas), absolutely beautiful!

Sadie Springs Retreat (SL1957) House Plan by CB Ingram for Southern Living!

Sadie Springs Retreat (SL1957) House Plan by CB Ingram for Southern Living

I love when new homes look like older homes in well established neighborhoods, especially when there are also mature trees. How nice to have all the modern conveniences, yet have the illusion of an older home. You just can’t beat it! This home is another example of fine architecture.

Packed with good things (pomegranate seeds, lettuce, olive oil, onion, pecans) it is perfect as is for a light meal, or served with something grilled or roasted. It’s also perfect for the holidays!

A Perfect Getaway on a Gray Day…

The Perfect Getaway…

When life gets busy, we retreat to the sunroom. It’s like being out in nature without getting wet (it was raining when I took this photo). The birds chirp, the squirrels run through the shrubs, birds build nests and we watch as their young fly away. We see so much from this small space, yet it’s absolutely all we need! It’s the best “getaway” ever…

Life is too short not to be…

Let’s Do IT! #kindnessarmy

On an early walk around the neighborhood… I passed by the shopping center and saw this sign. Thought y’all would appreciate it. #AMEN There is so much anger in this world. We can all do better so… let us step it up and truly be good humans. I ran into a situation this week that really made me question people…

Chicken Cutlets with Sun Dried Tomato Cream Sauce!

Odd time of day to take this image; but rest assured this is over the top awesome!

This recipes comes together fairly quickly and if made for two, makes another meal a few days later!

In addition to Leslie’s innate painting skills and ability to capture this area so perfectly, she is such a nice person. Kind, and interesting – you will look at her paintings, and be reminded of an area, or a memory and smile when you think of the artist who painted it. Leslie has a following clearly because her work is gorgeous and is a nice reminder of the Lowcountry. Did I mention her exhibit which starts this Friday, November 5, 2021?
