I've been meaning to take summer blog banner pictures for the entire month of June... but if you check the weather history of Halifax NS (which as a fisherman's daughter, I do like the weather network lol) you'll see rain, fog, drizzle, thundershowers with a risk of cloud. For the past three weeks. UGH.
Although it has clouded over already as we speak, I came home from work at 5pm to find SUN. So I put on my "summer clothes" and began warming up in the apartment. I felt a little silly practicing downward dog in a skirt... but no one was around to see. :)
Andrew came home and off we went, walking (briskly) to find a fun, shady street. My plan: Utthita Hasta Padangustasana (or hand to big toe pose... well ok, my approximation). It was already starting to cloud over so, as soon as the coast was clear I ran out in the street, threw my purse to the ground, my flip flops to the side (oh Goddess, I hope there's no glass on the street!) and up up up. Five second grounding, CRAP THERE'S A CAR COMING! LOL. It was so much fun!
In the end, the picture we chose was a last minute, on our walk back picture. I saw a beautiful tree and, the silly person that I am yelled: "Take a picture of me under the tree- QUICK!" and posed. So not quite dancer's pose... but fun nonetheless.
We'll be trying to adjust the borders later, but right now it's off to get some GUINESS for pre-Canada Day celebrations!
Blessings and Happy Summer!
