This time of year, while being my favorite season (Fall), drives me crazy. Having the sun set before 5-5:30 PM in the evening sets my internal clock all kinds of out of whack. With the countdown to Thanksgiving here in the states at a little over a week and a half left, I’ve been searching through recipes by the dozens – looking for something unique to try this year. It’s a little thing my friends and I do each year, have a little Turkey Day cook off. This year – I intend to win. 🙂
When I saw the set Kibitz had made for Fantasy Gacha Carnival this time my first thought was – Scheherazade. She who married a king and was saved from death by keeping him intrigued with tales she told each night. That’s the simplified version. Of course my brain works in a disjointed, yet related way and had me leap from Scheherazade to Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, from Ali Baba to the Aladdin, and now I have “Friend Like Me” from the Disney version of Aladdin stuck in my head. See how that works? Completely understandable, right?
Fantasy Gacha Carnival is almost here and let me tell you, are there some truly beautiful and fantastic things coming your way. SO. MANY. SHINY. THINGS. The theme for this round is Silver, Gold – Angels and the Dark Side of the Moon. For my first FGC post I nabbed this set from FDD Stories. I put in on and felt like a fantasy version of Wonder Woman. Funnily enough, a friend of mine said the same in voice to me as I was thinking it when I put this on. 😀
So, I’m a day-ish late with this post. Yesterday morning I went on a photo field trip with some of the Lindens to a sim called The Trace. (Apparently this is the first of several they have planned for the future.) I loved the sim. The Trace is a beautiful beachy sim that I had not been to visit before. I decided to combine some pretty landscape shots from the field trip with some more pics of goodies from the Wayward Hunt.
Spring has arrived in SL! Like I did for the Winter season, I took some time to TP around and check out some sims with pretty Spring scenery for those of us who love to take pics and those who just love to explore. Come and take a peek…
This week for her Monday Meme Berry wrote about her blogging milestones. Since my blog and my posting regularly is new in comparison – sort of a toddler to Berry’s adult – I decided that I probably wouldn’t have too much to say about milestones quite yet. So I am doing last week’s challenge this week and because I am doing so on a Monday, the procrastinator in me somehow feels as if I am on time. Yes, I know. My logic is skewed – welcome to my world.
So last week for her Monday Meme, Berry proposed making motivational posters for Second Life. You know the ones. They were up ALL over the place – doctor’s offices, schools, company lobbies… I think I may have even seen one in a public restroom at one time. You can see her post about the topic here. She even linked it to a nifty website that lets you turn you images into a poster.
I think my poster is a little on the hokey side…
