The house continues to be a bit of a construction site, although there is very little to show for all this work in progress.
Well, we have put in some closets in the bedroom
& work in the kitchen continues at a steady pace.
Sometimes in all this chaos, the best thing for me to do is go for a walk & just get out of the way.
Here are just a few details from a walk around the neiborhood this week.
In spite of cool temperatures, spring is really starting to pop out all over.
Had I mentioned that the ceilings of the early piazzas were painted
" haint blue" to dispel evil spirits. The theory being, that the sky blue color would fool the offending spirits into believing that it was indeed the sky & that they would move on along without entering.
Everywhere one looks, there are so many aging & crumbling details of a time gone by.
In what was once Wilhemenia's, is now one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants, Five Loaves
....on Cannon Street. Another favorite is Butcher & Bee (not pictured), which is also in easy walking distance. They both offer great vegan & vegetarian options.
Charleston is a bicycle kind of town. Everybody rides bikes here.
Although many trees are still bare, spring is surely on its way.
Hope you have enjoyed yet another walk around the neighborhood in Charleston.
