am here…

Festive

Peeking out from my rather long bangs am thinking of absolutely nothing as the last couple days my sinuses have just taken my energy and stuffed it somewhere…It is a good thing my Christmas list is super short and have already finished getting the bigger gifts that I needed.  The Forest ~ Winter Wonderland starts out with you landing at a Train station among a gorgeously done snow scene.  When you look out while waiting for the train to take you around you will see deer grazing as well as the Christmas gnomes that are keeping watch…Plus those amazing igloo’s that are just behind me ~ this is another sim that I will be coming back for more exploring as it deserves a second look ♥  The warm sweater am wearing is one of the pressies from the POE hunt…after years doing this I realize the need to get it done early as a lot of the gifts are geared for Christmas and winter…Peace on Earth hunt is marking its 11th year in SL ~ clicking on the above link will take you to the website where you can find a list of the stores and the prizes♥  The gorgeous scarf wrapped around my neck is a pressie from Ty & Truck owners of Calas and the gorgeous Christmas sim A Midnight Clear ~ it is a group gift that is free and you will find it at the Pavilion under a table close to the front as you come in…lastly my hat/hair was a very nice pressie from my bestie Dena ♥  Before I go please let me thank each of my readers for taking time out to read my blog as this truly makes me smile especially when a stranger sends me an IM telling me they love reading my blog and yes I am surprised at times to hear that honestly did not realize…to my friends and fellow bloggers thank you a well for supporting me ~ till next time hugzz to all ♥

city sidewalks…

NewYork

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air, there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner, you hear…”

New York City is a place that truly celebrates their holidays ~ from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Centre…not a place I would live in because things are hectic, people rushing around and at times a little bit scary for me…yet as a past visitor of that Big Apple it is marvelous to go visit, see the amazing sights especially at Christmas time when you can go ice skating right next to that huge Christmas tree, walk along Fifth Avenue, grab a bag of those delicious roasted chestnuts from a street vendor and many other touristy things that NYC offers…

Also, the infamous New York subway that is an experience within the underground you can hear live musicians ~ some famous ~ some not…you never know what you will see down there ~ feeling festive wearing one of the Advent gifts and the necklace that is also a pressie from the Poe hunt *check credits below*  That’s it for now with the exception of a little reminder regarding those suffering from depression as it gets closer and closer to Christmas a lot of individuals truly struggle and need compassion along with making sure they are aware you are there for me even if it is just a short call saying “hello was thinking of you” even a short text might just brighten someone’s day ~ hugzz ♥♥

A Midnight Clear…

A Midnight Clear

“It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From Angels playing near the earth
To touch their harps of gold”

A Midnight Clear is a wondrous collaboration between Tymus & Truck owners of Calas and this is their special Christmas sim that they outdo year after year and of course, this year was no disappointment to me…If you never have experienced Christmas at Calas this is a must see sim that will delight you in ways and words that I just cannot describe. A couple of things you must know before going over there is first there is you have to be under 100 scripts or the script-police will whisk you away ♥  Secondly make sure you have your music turned on and your environment set to the sim one ~ My suggestion is first to take the sleigh tour that you can relax, enjoy the scenery along with the music that Truck has picked out just for this ~

CalasC1

Along the sleigh tour where you can cuddle up with your special someone or ride alone, you will get to a good look at the Emperor Penguins making their arduous trip heading to their breeding site *fyi* did you know they are the largest and heaviest of all penguins…

CalasC2.png
When you land you will be given a nice folder that has all the lm’s to the photo ops like the one you see above with the horse and sleigh w/several couple animations ~ Please remember to keep your scripts under 100 and if you are so inclined please donate some Lindens as Ty & Truck do depend on donations to keep Calas up and running ♥ enjoy your visit to “A Midnight Clear”

“Peace on the earth, good will to men, ‘
From heav’n’s all-gracious King.
The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing!”

As always I want to thank all my readers that take time to read my blog and thank those that send me all those comments constructive and nice ~ till next time be kind to one another ♥♥

Toshi Farms…

Toshi Farms
Couple days ago I grabbed my cute pet “Puggy” and we went exploring looking for a snow-filled sim and we found as you can see above a very nice one called “Toshi Farms” ~ there are all sorts of winter activities that you can take part in plus they have the coolest tree farm that I have seen ~For those owning Water Horses there are nice snow covered trails that you can come to ride♥  Snow is falling so make sure you dress warm with hats, mittens and especially boots as the snow is rather deep in places…Sadly the truck behind me is not mine along with that gorgeous tree in the back of it ~ they do have a gorgeous tree lot that you can pick out your own special tree and do not even have to bring your ax with you as they are already cut ~ enjoy walking around Toshi Farms ♥♥

SL Winter…

Winter1

Its beginning to look a lot like Winter Wonderland around SL and I absolutely love it ~ especially with none of the biting cold effects that come being outside…wearing my heavy warm sweater by Perch that was a prize from the WOH, my Ugg boots and yes my hat because where I went it was snowing a lot…  Footprints in the Snow is a gorgeous sim with a lot of photo ops for you to take ~ if you are not too noisy you can get up close to the reindeer like I did *grinz* Winter is one of my favorite RL seasons and the creativity is limitless in SL that I am finding bunches of sims that have changed to winter that I will be exploring ~ there will be coming up soon the start of Advent season with various stores participating that I will try my best to keep you informed ~ Peace on Earth hunt starts also and that one is probably the biggest hunt of the season ♥  December will be a very full month that my wish is you will stick around with me ~ until then remember to take time out for yourself and this is your SL make the most out of what you want ~ hugzz♥♥

the bayou…

BlackBayou

Oh, am sure you heard the stories about the Bayou where people get lost and some never make it out alive ~ where the landscape is stark and the waters hold snakes, gators and all sorts of waterfowl ~ a place you don’t wanna go unless you have a guide…that is just what I did was travel to the Black Bayou to discover a land that brings back all those memories for those that have gotten a glimpse maybe from the movies, tv’s or books…

BlackBayou What a great creation and truly love the starkness of the trees, water, and some rather interesting structures that you can only imagine the secrets they hold…really a remarkable place that even has a wooden boardwalk that you can walk around to different locations to get some incredible landscape shots… BlackBayou

Different types of waterfowl that just beg to have their images captured on film so those that really love places to go and explore just remember the Black Bayou and you won’t find any stores to go shopping or cafes to sit and sip your lattes this is truly an amazing place ♥ Did not see any residents wandering around but from the laundry hanging out to some buildings that would fairly pass as houses am sure there are some brave souls that love living down in the Black Bayou♥  Make sure when you go to dress accordingly as this is the Black Bayou with swamps, mosquitos and who knows what ~ ENJOY♥

“Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life.”anonymous

 

trick or…

trick or treat?

I decided to take a look at the Destination Guide that SL provides and did the eeny meenie thing to see where I wanted to end up ~ before I tell you about my trip I will say turning my blog into a destination or travel blog am truly finding my niche as they say and honestly with the pressure of having to meet deadlines and doing things on my time frame am back to enjoying SL as it should be♥  After getting back from enjoying the Copperfield Winery I chose a Halloween theme to go/see ~ and followed one of the editor’s choices that was not right at the top ~ landing at Halloween Rock n Shock you are made aware of houses, pumpkins, and a very inviting atmosphere ~ as you walk around to make sure you grab a free trick/treat bag so when you start knocking on doors the candy has someplace to go LOL ~ free treats and they are calorie free as well hehehe ~ once done you need to hop in the pumpkin coach for a tour ♥

RY1

The pumpkin coach takes you on a rather interesting ride around Doll Island just a warning those dolls are very creepy I would keep your hands and feet in during the ride just a warning…

 

RY3

Once you finish with the tour you can hop out and go exploring like seeing that castle in the sky up there it’s not a bad walk lighted by torches so you won’t need a flashlight just giving you another warning that I am horrible at finding my way back out the door so try to remember how you came in as I spent several panic moments trying to find the door for outside ~ lot of spookiness going on that Island of Dolls so please remember I did warn you~ the entire sim is done really well that you will want to spend time walking around as I only covered a portion of what is here~this was just a peek to what RebelYell has in store for you… I am truly hoping that you are enjoying the way the blog is going as I would love comments or suggestions of places to see and hey they don’t all have to be Halloween themed but out of the way that might be interesting and you would like to share ♥  RL is grabbing me the next couple of days for one of my favorite dog sitting customers but will be back on Sunday ♥  Enjoy ~ ooops here is the RIDE hehehe
