Somethin’ About Sunshine

I am having the worst week. Seriously. The. Worst. I can’t even begin to explain why. And I’m sure you all don’t really want me to. Its a long and boring and business related story. And I’m so over it.

And why does my computer’s keyboard keep switching to French??

Moving on, I feel like I’ve been super negative and whiny around these parts lately, you know, when I even bother to show up for class, and I’m really trying not to do that. So here are a few pictures from my wonderful weekend. We’ll get back on track tomorrow. Promise.

I spent a few hours Saturday sitting on a bench at the mall catching up with my long lost friend Monica. It was wonderful and far to brief. Unfortunately the only picture I took was of my clothes, my new favorite Saturday go to outfit.
There’s nothing I love more than being able to spend my days stretched out on a lawn chair, soaking up the sun, reading magazines, writing blog posts, drinking a cold one and painting my nails.

Saturday evening was spent celebrating my cousins very belated birthday, and because I was super lazy I just tossed a blazer and some jewelry on with my outfit from earlier.
And Sunday was spent once again, flaked out on my lawn chair working on my tan so that I’m not the palest bridesmaid in the world next month.

Hello Sunshine!

Summer has taken quite a while to reach these parts. We had a decent month of May, but let me tell you, June, well June and I, we aren’t on speaking terms. It was cold and windy, and it rained nearly every day.

July has been pretty good so far, sunshine every day and the temperatures have been great. If only the wind would stop. But thats wishful thinking here in Newfoundland.

But I’m a take what I can get kinda girl, so I’ve been soaking up every bit of sun I can, and doing my best to take advantage of the not freezing my ass off temperatures.

As you can tell les jambes are ghostly white so I need all the sunshine I can get.

My idea of the perfect way to spend a few hours in the sun.
Last evening it was finally time to put the boats for the rowing club in the water. When we were done a few of the experienced rowers decided to go out for a spin. I can’t wait to try it out.

I know what you’re thinking. Kathryn, I thought you said it was sunny. Doesn’t look very sunshiney in these pics.  Okay, so maybe you weren’t thinking that, but just in case you were, I feel I should explain that it was in fact super sunny yesterday. And that haziness you are seeing in these pictures is not fog, or clouds. It is smoke. Thats right, thick, yucky, smelly smoke. There’s a forest fire 480 miles away (near Labrador City) and that lovely wind I was telling you about is bringing the smoke our way. 
And even though Whitney is off enjoying her long weekend. I’m still #backinthatazzup.
