I Like to Call It Art

Yesterday Dave and I needed to go to the mall so he could buy running shoes so of course, we turned it into an adventure! Also, I felt like I was in a hair commercial all day yesterday. It's getting so long! Finally!


It was such a gorgeous day out too. Kind of cold when we started out, but as we got into our walking groove, we warmed right up. And the sun was just glorious! A perfect Spring day.



We are going to start running together. It has been torture waiting for the weather to finally get nice enough to go outside and run. Running indoors, in place, just isn't the same thing to me! I want to be outside, enjoying the scenery. So it's exciting that we are going to get fit together.



Pit stop to re-fuel. I hate mall food. More than life itself. It's so gross.


We passed some swings on the way home. You all know I can't resist swings. Swing face!


God I love him. Look at him: waiting patiently, holding all my shit, while I swing and carry on like a toddler. Seriously, I love you Dave.


There is just so much amazing art around this city. I wish that the city left it alone and didn't clean it up or paint over it, I love it.  It makes for such a colourful and vibrant place to live. I know there are gang signs and whatever there too, but it doesn't bother me. I don't know, maybe it should, but it really doesn't. 



I WILL stay rad, thanks for the reminder!  We were standing under a bridge and dodging bird poo at this point, we could hear it bombing all around us...had to get out of there quick :)


Oh dear. And here is where the 'photo shoot' began. Like most amazing things, this was not planned...it just kind of happened. Classic excuse.




Oh yeah...we went there. Why the shocker Katherine? Why?





IIINNNNN West Philadelphia born and raised...I have no problems being this big of a loser. What does this say about me?


These pictures remind me of pics of my dad and uncle when they first came to Canada and were in some kind of greaser gang.  They are standing in your typical grandmother's basement, holding a gun with pictures of topless girls on the walls. These pictures are hilarious. You can tell they thought they were so badass when really they just look like little skinny white boys being ridiculous. 


The photographer. He really drew the gangster out of me, captured some pretty real and harrowing photos of life in the city. I mean, I was scared.



We ended up having a really awesome day. A couple of hours in the sunshine will do that. You have no idea how grateful I am for it when it decides to show it's face (unless you do!)...it really is a blessing.  When we got home we went for a run and Dave broke in his new shoes. It was awesome running together...we pushed each other and supported each other...it was great!

Tonight will be about going for another run, eating an amazing home cooked dinner, and relaxing with my love.  

What are your plans for this sunny Monday?
