Hello, Summer

It’s about 92 degrees outside.  We’ve had some very humid days this month already but also some nice non-humid days.  I always welcome a break from the humidity with open arms.

Our oldest son has been on a 16 day trip to Italy with friends from college.  Today they finished up their trip in Venice.  Riding.  Gondolas.  In.  Venice.  I can’t even imagine.  On their trip (that was a year in the planning), they participated in a wine tasting on Mt. Etna, walked the beaches of Sicily, toured Capri, hiked Mt. Vesuvius and toured Pompeii, Vatican City, the ruins in Rome, took a cooking class taught by an Italian chef, spent a day in Assisi and several days in Florence, and finished up in Venice, to name a few.  They ate lots of good Italian food.  They arrive back home in the States tomorrow and this mama is looking forward to hearing all about their trip. And seeing all of the pictures of course.

Hubby picked up some steaks to grill out this weekend.

I’m making this Strawberry Bacon Blue Cheese Salad to go with the steaks.

I guess we’ll split a baked potato as we usually do.

I cleaned some today and organized some drawers.  Tomorrow I plan to relax with this:

    Oh Gail! What a wonderful way to spend the weekend! I love every bit of it – Southern Living has been a staple in our home for years because my mom’s from the south…lol
    Enjoy having your son home too! xo
