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.

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.

Can’t Decide?

Halloween is quickly approaching and if you don’t know what to be yet do I have a suggestion for you! Lady Plague Skeleton Doctor person!

As you can see I have a lovely skeleton bits on my dress as well as my plague doctor mask. It’s like I couldn’t choose between some fancy lady, a skeleton and a plague doctor so I mashed them all together. Now if you have some treats for me I would greatly appreciate it.

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.

Tropical Getaway

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

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.

Cooling Off

Somedays you just need to toss yourself into a kiddie pool, clothes and all! It’s one of those hot and humid days when all you want to do is cool down, no matter what it takes. I do not have a pool of my own in RL, but there is one in my complex but outside is where the sun lives and we have a love/hate relationship. I love the sun, it makes me happy, the sun on the other hand hates me with a burning passion (that is a fancy way of saying that I burn easily)

Normally I am not a rose all day kind of girl, but in the heat of the summer I will drink just about anything as long as it’s cold. And while it may not be a drink per se, I will also eat boozy popsicles, like the blueberry-grapefruit-gin one I got from a local food truck/ice cream truck recently. As an asides I do not recommend eating a boozy popsicle on an empty stomach unless you want a quick, cool buzz. If you hadn’t guessed I am finally home from my epic adventure and will hopefully be back to posting regularly now. Have a wonderful day my loves ♥

Silent Reflection

I have been doing a lot of thinking during this Fantasy Faire and it’s not just because of the quest for a change (more coming on that in another post). I have been spending the days as one of the caregivers (okay so I am a glorified babysitter at the moment) to my father who is currently battling cancer. And it is a terrible thing for anyone to have to do. But that is why we relay and why the Faire is important, because not everyone has the ability to travel and help family in a time of need.

I will stop going on about all that, because this outfit is beautiful and should be the star of this post. I think I found the perfect spot on one of the Faire regions for my photos. It is gorgeous and glowing, oh and don’t forget magical. I mean there are waterfalls and unicorns! I am going to head off now. I have more photos to take and posts to write!

His Little Mermaid

For those of you who have followed me through my various blog iterations you might remember me doing a photo/story long ago about a man rescuing a mermaid. If not, well I once wrote a little tale about a man rescuing a mermaid, or at least he thought he was rescuing her. Even my own memories of it are vague at best. That however is neither here nor there, but what is relevant is the bathtub. You see when I saw this bathtub along with the mermaid tail applier I had flashbacks to those photos and I wanted to sort of recreate them.

Here is his little mermaid getting herself all cleaned up and properly hydrated in the bath. Some mermaids can walk on land because their tails will morph into legs, while others are forever finned. This little mermaid is forever finned in her purple scales.

She does have a friend who will happily blow bubbles in the bathtub with her, and other silly things too. But this isn’t about him and his ability to amuse a little mermaid, it’s all about her, and her bathtub.
