Feeling 17

Taylor may have felt twenty-two, but today I am channeling my inner seventeen year old. I say that because when I saw this outfit at Kustom9 a couple months (I think) ago it reminded me of my youngest child in the non-digital world. Their haircut may not be the same, but it is dyed the same. And they are forever wearing boots of some style, but you don’t want to know about my child’s wardrobe.

Well that was interesting. As I was writing this post my mouse decided to roll over and die. Sometimes life just doesn’t want me to be productive I swear. I think I am going to just get to the credits before something else decides it wants to get in on the fun!

Always a Good Time…

For cookies! At least to me it’s always a good time for cookies. I mean there are such things as breakfast cookies so that means they are good anytime of day. Generally I don’t do milk with my cookies, unless it’s an Oreo and I am in the mood for dunking.

On cold days in the winter I love to bake because it warms up the house, makes it smell good and leaves me with something delicious to eat. In fact it was cold in my non-digital life yesterday so I baked some brownies. I may have even had one as a midnight snack, but don’t let cookies know I cheated on them! That is enough rambling from me. I will be back with a blogging vengeance (no for real!) as soon as I am house guest free.

Cold Outside

Christmas may be over, but that doesn’t mean that winter is over, not even close (well at least here in the northern hemisphere). In fact it’s freezing cold here in the south, literally. Luckily where I live we don’t get snow or else no one would know what to do!

Warm blankets, a roaring fire (that is not what I am called when mad, I swear) and some battery powered lights can create a cozy little feeling when the snow is falling and the power is out. If one has to get snowed in in a remote cabin being stuck there with someone you love can make it at least a little more fun.

While it may look like we are headless, I assure you we are just bundled up nice and warm. I mean maybe later things will look a little different when we explore other ways to stay warm, but for now blankets and a warm fire will have to suffice.

Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate today and Happy Thursday (or whatever day it is you are looking at this). I know I have been lax in my postings lately, but RL has been a busy one this year, in good and not so good ways. Since it is Thanksgiving for me I thought I would share what I am thankful for this year. I am thankful for my family, and that my dad is still with us and fighting his cancer. To be completely honest we didn’t think he would make it to Thanksgiving, but we are more than grateful that he is. Friends, who are there for me during the rough and dark times and there to celebrate all the wonderful moments with me as well. I am thankful for the good fortune that allows me to have a roof over my head and food in my belly. Oh and my cats, all four of them. Even the little kitten who has left no part of my unscratched. And coffee, because without that I would get even less done in a day, and be a terrible crank while not doing anything. Last, but certainly not least I am thankful for you! If no one has told you today that they love you and are happy to have you in their life, well consider it done. I love you and am happy you are here!

Now that I have given you enough cheese to make you lactose intolerant have some credits.

Run!

We had an uninvited guest join us on our camping adventure. Needless to say we didn’t stick around to find out if he was after us, our food, or if he just wanted a spot to eat his tasty honeycomb. Of course the bear comes along before we could take our cute matching outfit couples picture. In my opinion I rock the tank top looks a little more than him, bit I may be a touch biased.

Teddy Bear Day

Today is Teddy Bear Day or at least that is what some special day calendar thing told me. I had a hard time narrowing down which teddy bear themed idea I wanted to go with for my photo. As you can see I have decided to try and hide in plain sight among the other teddy bears. I will just have to save the other ideas for another time.

I could so go for a getaway right now, sitting on a beach drinking boozy cocktails.

Miss Mouse

Whenever I head to Disney World I try to dress with a character in mind. It may be super vague to anyone who sees me, but at least I know who I am trying to channel. Luckily in SL I don’t have to worry about wandering the park in heels all day, something you couldn’t pay me enough to do IRL. If you couldn’t guess by my look I am channeling my inner Minnie Mouse. Now I would not suggest wearing long sleeves in FL in the middle of summer, especially there as there is no ocean breeze so it gets so grossly hot.

A whole lotta nope

Yes I am back yet again. It seems like just when I start to get back to things something comes up and knocks me back a few steps. This time it was Covid. I got walloped hard by it and am still waiting to get my sense of taste back. For the record not being able to taste things is the worst diet trick ever! And if that wasn’t enough I had house guests right afterwards! So right now I am feeling like answering every request for my time with a resounding “Nope!”

As you can see from my top I am all about the nope right now. That and sloths are cool.

Decking the Halls

In the non-digital part of my life my house has been decked out for Christmas since a little before Thanksgiving. That may seem early to some, but after the craziness of the last two years I will do almost anything to make the days cheerful. I don’t have a perfect looking tree like this one, not even close! It’s actually covered with random ornaments collected over the years, each one representing something I love or something that happened. This year the ornament I bought shows that everyone in the house is vaccinated, compared to last years where everyone is wearing a mask. Now you know a little more about how I celebrate Christmas.
