Lazy Summer Sunday Afternoon

Some may accuse photographer bloggers of documenting every little mundane thing in their lives with pictorials that they in turn force upon the World Wide Web community.  I say balderdash!

Oooooo but let me tell you all about our recent, wonderfully lazy, summer Sunday afternoon!

With big white puffy clouds in a crystal blue sky, my new hubby and I jumped in the car for a little Manitoba exploration.  In Birds Hill Provincial Park we actually stumbled upon a polo match.  Stopping to watch for 7 minutes – we determined that was long enough to make an informed decision that it wasn’t our cup of Earl Grey.  Onward we go…

Soon after we found a little cemetery in the park.  When I was young, my Dad would take my sisters and I for bicycle rides through our local cemetery.  It’s not as morbid as it sounds – it was a nice, quiet place to ride without the threat of cars that could mangle  our little pink bikes.  It also gave me an early appreciation for stone structures and wrought iron fences.  So on this lazy summer Sunday afternoon, we were happy to discover some old tombstones with a bit of character, begging to be read and preserved via digital files.

After grabbing some local produce from a roadside truck, we went home to roast corn on the cob while playing botanists.

We’ve decided to try a wild flower garden again next year, so we collected seeds from some of our favourite flowers.  (Feel free to insert poppy seed harvesting jokes here)  And what better way to end a lazy summer Sunday afternoon then to partake in a little wine …

and delight in the knowledge that your new husband is just as nuts as you are.

Thanks Anita. Now that our gorgeous Manitoba weather left us this week with a blowing, cold North wind, I might just sit by the corn roast fire image and see if it’ll warm me up!
