B-E-A-utiful!

Standard

Thank goodness for air conditioning!  How did Southern women do it, back in the day, before AC?  And wearing dresses and petty coats, no less??

Since returning from Ohio, C & I have been laying low, mostly to stay in air conditioning indoors!  Whew!  The heat and humidity were in full effect here in Memphis.

We’ve watched Baby Einstein, lounged around, read, napped, and enjoyed the AC!  Have I mentioned that I love our air conditioning?

6_15flowersWe decided to take advantage of the nice day and go to one of our favorite restaurants, Central BBQ, to eat lunch.  I think the idea was to sit outside on their patio to eat, but we ended up inside.  No biggie.  As always, the food was delicious and keeping C entertained while we waited and then ate was fun.  Who knew how fun paper towels and straw wrappers could be?

I’d heard of the Shelby Farms Summer Concert series, and as tonight was just beautiful, we went as a family and met up with Susan, Margie, Rick, and Zach.  It ended up being just perfect – cool, mostly bug free, with a very pretty sunset in the background.  Not to mention the soul/funk band that was good, and the myriad of local food trucks that were around the parking lot!  DH & I both got a Philly Cheese steak from MarksGrill.  Oh My Gosh.  SO good!

Anyway, it’s been a really great couple of days and I am so happy to be back together as a family after the trip C & I took.
