HNT - Summer Chores

It's summer time, and as such there are certain personal "chores" that require more of our attention. It's in these routine, daily activities that sensual and seductive moments are lost ... or are they?


*click*


“Look, I really don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive, you got to flap your arms and legs, you got to jump around a lot, you got to make a lot of noise, because life is the very opposite of death. And therefore, as I see it, if you're quiet, you're not living. You've got to be noisy, or at least your thoughts should be noisy and colorful and lively.”

~ Mel Brooks

Matt-Man said...

My, my, my. How I wish my tongue was that razor. Cheers Dana!!

Jay said...

I'm jealous of that lucky razor. ;-)

Vixen said...

I love that! Very creative. Lighting/shadowing in both are *awesome*.

happyHNT!

I Smile 2 Much said...

Summertime chores never looked so good! Luv*luv the 1st tub pic tho both are so dang sexy & clever!

Happy *U make summertime BEAUTIFUL* HNT 2 U!!

Seductive is right! ; ) You most definitely are!

Dana said...

Os, and if you had a TALL ladder, you might be able to get that view through the window.

Matt-Man, I'm thinking your tongue would like my leg much better AFTER the razor!

Jay, don't be a razor-hater!

Dana said...

Vixen, who'd have thought shaving one's legs could be creative?

I Smile, you are always so kind in your comments - they make me smile - BIG!

Boo(duh) said...

I'm jealous of that tub! Lovely as always, Dana. I have no idea how you keep coming up with these great ideas!

Happy HNT!

Baby said...

Wow I love that tub... very sensual photos.... :) Happy HNT!!!

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

It doesn't *look* like they've been lost at all. :)

Those are lovely shots--I especially like the first. Happy HNT!

figleaf said...

They really are both cool, distinctive, everyday-sexy photos, Dana. Very nice!

Happy HNT,

figleaf

Mike said...

I never knew that seeing someone as lovely as you shaving themself would be so sexy! Love both picture, now does that make me sad or what?? lol
HHNT

Adam Apple said...

Some of those 'routine, daily activities' can be quite 'sensual and seductive' if shared with a willing friend. *hint, hint*

Happy HNT!

Anonymous said...

Oh, lady, you and you're awesome bathtub making me so envious!

Love these shots. Love the sunlight how it hits. It's great! Get those chores done, girl. :P

Anonymous said...

Sexy photo and technique! You put a lot of creative energy into these sexy layouts! Thanks!

Dana said...

Boo(duh), jealous of the tub and not me?? WHAAAAAAHHHH!!

Baby, it really is a great tub!

Ms. I, I've often wondered what that point is in a relationship where moments like this become deserving of nothing more than a quick glance.

Dana said...

Figleaf, thank you - it was that everyday-sexy thing I hoped to capture.

Mike, I have a fantasy that involves shaving - specifically someone else doing it for me - but have not yet had the opportunity to make it happen.

Adam Apple, yes they can, and I hope to find that willing friend soon!

Lu' said...

my mind is now thinking of whipped cream...

Real Live Lesbian said...

Great idea! LOL...I'm like Lu..I think whipped cream and tongues would be a natural next step in HNT@ :)

Mike said...

If only there was a little pond bwteen us as i would of help you with your fantasy ;)

Anndi said...

My mind went where lu's and RLL's did... yes ma'am!

Anonymous said...

More than just the bubbles and nekkidness, I find something VERY sexy about the idea that you're taking care of this "summer chore" for the benefit of another. Readying yourself for the touch of a loved one. At least that's how I see it. Your particular situation notwithstanding Dana.

Great pics as usual

FMD

Talisman said...

Now this is one I never would have even thought of! Good job, they both are awesome pictures!

doggybloggy said...

did somebody say whipped cream?

Flyinfox_SATX said...

Very nice Dana! I must admit that I love your sense of style!

Flyinfox_SATX

Dana said...

FF, I will admit that my tub is my indulgence. It's the one thing I really enjoy about this house!

Kannon7, I got lucky with this one - it was a point and click moment!

Lu, I don't know how well that would work with my razor!

Dana said...

RLL, I have to say that I've never had whipped cream liked off me!

Mike, I'm working on getting that fantasy fulfilled a little closer to home, but I appreciate the offer *wink*

Anndi, at least the whipped cream in the tub would be easy to clean up!

Dana said...

FMD, I might just be readying myself for the touch of a loved one *wink*

Tali, I started thinking about how many times during my day I do thinks that really could be seen as erotic in an "ordinary" way - this was one of the things I came up with.

DB, you do realize that second pic was especially for you, right??

Hank said...

what an awesome view. love how the light is hitting you. Maybe you could move over and I could join you. HHNT!!

Mike said...

damn lol, but i know your have a lovely time when you do ;)

Dana said...

Flyinfox, sometime the less you try to be sexy, the more it appears you are!

Hank, there is plenty of room for two, but I've yet to have a taker!

Mike, somehow I think that if I make the right choice, reality will be far better than the fantasy!

Mike said...

I have no doubts about that ;) oh to be a fly on the wall when you do forfill your fantasy ;)

the good doctor said...

Do you have a professional lighting engineer on retainer or something? Damn! These are fabulous shots!

Tink said...

Awesome shot! I really love the angle and the lighting.

cat said...

You always make me smile!

Dianne said...

I know I should get all carnal and suggestive but I gotta say

the angle, the lighting
that is so stunning Dana

and I like your new avatar
very summery

although legs and wine will always be my favorite

Dana said...

Good Dr., just the afternoon sun beaming through the window! Timing is everything!

Tink, I've decided I am quite lucky - the camera goes where the tripod is steady and the sun ... well ... it just is!

Cat, smiling is good!

doggybloggy said...

armpits and inner thighs.....I hear ya!

Bina said...

Very nicely done! You are so creative and sexy! I would NEVER have thought of doing one like that but you certainly make it work!

Dana said...

Dianne, no need to get carnal and suggestive - those are usually already covered! I'm working on a revision to the wine/legs avatar - a little color work - you might like it even better when I'm done!

DB, I didn't forget!

Bina, sometimes it's the "ordinary" stuff that turns out surprisingly well ...

Paul B said...

Great photos...very creative and oh so very sexy!

HHNT!

Knight said...

The lighting in this photo is fantastic. It really draws you in and makes you open your eyes. Beautiful.

Leighann said...

Smmooooth!

Karen said...

Very nice. I never though of shaving cream as sexy before.

Mina said...

very sensual. Love the lighting. HHNT

Bond said...

Always a wonderful take on the theme...Very well done Dana...

Dana said...

Paul, thank you for stopping by! I'm glad you enjoyed the visit!

Knight, nature at it's finest - I did not altering of either of these - didn't even need to crop!

Leighann, I'll give you smmooooth ...

As American as Apple Pie said...

So what else did you shave? Going off of your Meme yesterday I'd wager a guess there was an even more sensitive area on the chore list.

I volunteer to share your tub! Baths are one of my indulgences but ours is little so it takes some of the "fun" away.

Dana said...

Karen, sometimes, when you take a second look, even the most mundane things can be sexy.

Mina, thank you! HHNT!

Bond, I kind of liked - OK, REALLY liked, your HNT today!

Lapis Ruber said...

I can just imagine how smooth and silky your legs feel after that! Happy HNT.

bittersweet said...

an arresting shot .. love the angles!

happy HNT

blue said...

Hi! THanks for coming by my blog...you are right last week kicked my butt, but I think I managed to come out on top. Really appreciate your support! Looks like you and I have a hell of a lot in common. Great pic, too!

colorlessblue said...

That's a really incredible shot. I'm amazed at how awesome the lights play in all photos I've seen so far!

Dana said...

Apple, I have no doubt that you were thinking that would be the click-through, but I can't share everything on the blog!

Lapis, they were, and still are!

Bittersweet, thank you! HHNT!

Dana said...

Blue, I always do my best to get around to as many HNT's as I can - it's all about community!

Colorlessblue, lighting can really help the mundane come alive. I got lucky with this one!

Polt said...

Man, I HATE shaving everyday...but at least my face area is not a as big an area and my pits and legs. Yuck. :)

HAPPY HNT!

Helga Hansen said...

Ah, thanks!! You've just reminded me I must get some blades when I do my shopping on Sunday! :D Nice photos - both of 'em! HHNT!

Anonymous said...

Oooooh the evil necessity! Nice HNT! :)

Dana said...

Polt, but on the upside, a knee is much easier to shave than a chin!

Helga, don't forget the blades!

Mssolitaire, it is an evil necessity, isn't it?!

Ro said...

Once again, Thursday makes me wish I had a bathtub of my own!

Lovely photos - you've certainly captured a couple of "sensual and seductive moments" :)

Happy HNT!

Anonymous said...

You make leg-shaving look like fun! Alas, if I did that in a bubble bath, I'd burn and break out in red bumps all over.

Greg & Sheryl said...

So that's how you keep your legs looking so lovely! Happy HNT!

Luka said...

I love the fact you have taken such a mundane, everyday chore for most of us women and turned it into a graceful, serene work of art!

HHNT!

Nude Canadian Boy said...

Excellent phots, and great Mel Brooks quote.

HHNT

Just your everyday average married momma... said...

I'm jealous of your fabulous photography skills... and that you actually have quite time in your house to take a BATH... I'm lucky if I get 2 minutes in a shower without one of the kids coming in to tattle or Baby B coming in nekkid herself to hop in.....

I wanna come live with you and sleep in the big ol' bathtub...
water, bubbles and clothing optional I suppose

ambergail77 said...

Sexy pic. I dated a girl once who liked to help shave certain hard to reach areas for me. I can totally understand why you would fantasize about it. Maybe I should send you her number ;)

Stiletto Reflections said...

Love the lighting!

Dana said...

Ro, and my tub would easily fit three people ... just sayin'

Irish, I have been blessed with skin that seldom reacts to anything I put on it!

G & S, it helps to have the shave cream hiding the "bad" parts!

Dana said...

Luka, I just think that sometimes we forget the little things that can be every bit as sensual as lingerie!

NCB, a gold star to you for noticing the Mel Brooks quote!

E, I'm so glad you are becoming a regular visitor again! I take an entire HOUR on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, lock the door, crank the tunes, fill the bathtub, grab a book and SOAK!!

Dana said...

ambergail, she doesn't live in the midwest, does she??

Stiletto, thank you! HHNT!

tt said...

clever,clever girl. I never thought of shaving my legs or pits as something that could be viewed as ....sexy.
As usual, you own it!

Lucia said...

amazing pics, very very creative
:-) love the lighting in it too!

HHNT!

TK Kerouac said...

You are the very best on HNT, a shining example of creativity
be proud of your midlife.

Lu' said...

Well Woman, you do have a sharp tongue *kiss kiss*

Mariposa said...

Simply amazing! HHNT!

Matt-Man said...

What I find disturbing is that 75 people ogled you. And to think, you used to be all mine. (okay, maybe not...but...)

Tears, tiny, tiny, tears...

Cheers Hot Stuff!!

Slick said...

Cleanliness is next to Godliness (sp?)

Hair is dirty....dirty dirty.

Dana said...

tt, you're missing out if you don't think sexy thoughts while doing mundane things - they all become sexy!

Lucia, thank you! HHNT!

TK, by no means the best, but thank you so much for the compliment!

Dana said...

Lu, Me?? A sharp tongue?? Nahh ...

Mariposa, thank you! HHNT!

Matt-Man, don't cry ... they may oogle but I'm still all yours!

Dana said...

Slick, you'll be happy to know that I'm about as "Godly" as they come *wink*

Biscuit said...

I love this picture! The lighting is superb, and the subject divine :)

Rex Venom said...

Sexy.
Reminds me to be clean.
Rock on!

The Covert Lover said...

Truly wonderful photo! Love the lighting, the tub, and the sexy pose! Chores can be sexy and fun - just takes a different type of thinking. :)

Happy very late HNT!

d2b said...

I'm really late for checking last week's HNT, but I'm really glad I didn't miss this. Love the pictures!

Happy, belated HNT!

SeaRabbit said...
