The shadowy world is always in fashion at Hey Harriet's most excellent Shadow Shot Sunday.
We know that it is Summer in Queensland so it is warmer there than most of the US now. And with an approaching snowstorm that is poised to leave 12-16" (30-40 cm) or more by noon Sunday. So not only will it feel like Winter, it will look the part too. To prevent any seasonal blues, we can alter our psychology a bit.
We look to the summer on our patio instead. It is true that we want the warming sunshine now as we prepare for snow. Yet, we look for relief when the sun is strong, so the shadowy shade we seek.
The umbrella covers the table outside, and we luxuriate in shade on occasion. This day was in 2007, the patio was scrubbed down, the humidity was delightfully low, and the ambient temp was around 80°F (29°C). In all a delightful day to light a charcoal fire and burn cook food over the grille. And sit in the shade. and relax in the sun, with the snow to be later and we will deal with it then!
