afternoon delight…

Down on the Farm
The field is all plowed, animals have gathered around my sexy hubby and me as we enjoy a moment…this is what I truly love about SL that you can one minute be frolicking in snow ~ the next moment you can be on a gorgeous beach or like Brutus and I sitting on a farm surrounded by farm animals…I can repeat and repeat this saying over and over but after 10 years am still enjoying myself ~ oh there have been a lot of ups and downs especially in the past couple days ~ my fingers are crossed they will soon get resolved so I can stop tearing my hair out and screaming in four-letter frustration…am sure my bestie and hubby will also be glad so I will stop venting over and over on this as they both have been patient in letting me truly rage ~ anyway even with that I love being a long time resident of Second Life ~ the poses have truly gotten better, the clothing makes me wish my RL clothes would fit just as well hehehe ~ that is something that most of us wish ♥ btw that billy goat is looking rather hungry he just better stay on that hay bale and not jump over to start chomping on my clothes or whatever he has got his eye on…best that I get back to that moment as Brutus and I do not see each other for very long ~ take care and again thank you for sticking around it is very appreciated ~just remember to take a moment to your self ~ hugzz♥♥

glamping we go…

Cramming as much of comfort stuff that Dena and I thought we would need I gave her directions to one of the most gorgeous places I have seen the Smoky Mountains that borders on Tennessee and North Carolina ~ we were really lucky the National Forest was letting us spend a couple of nights as the temperature was mild and the snow forecast for the next couple days was absolutely nil ~ as you can see Dena and myself set up camper and if the weather gets bad we can always hop in our comfy travel trailer to get us comfy…Dena did most of the work setting up as I struggled with the tent ~ you can just see behind us the peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains ~ choosing a perfect spot just in front of the Tennessee streams where the fishing is amazing.  At least I hope so as that was the plan for dinner ~ back up is the pot of soup simmering on the campfire along with a kettle of hot water for tea or maybe hot cocoa later…lunch is the sandwiches that we grabbed just before entering the park ~ you can also set we set up some nibbles of wine and cheese when we get back from fishing…ummm Dena is yelling at me from the stream so gotta get going ~ Y’all take care and we will be back soon ♥

Geisha girls…

Geisha Girls
Dena came up with the idea of this blog and I truly thought what a great idea and jumped into doing it enthusiastically until trying to find the hair, makeup took probably as long as the RL training to become a Geisha ~ laughing as that is so not true ~ for about a week now am having some major issues trying to sign in to the SL website so I could look at Marketplace from outside SL ~ without going into a lot of detail just saying it is getting frustrating after 4 days and not fixed *grumpy face*…still the idea finally got going with a bit of creative finesse as you can see by the pic above ~ what I said about the training for Geisha’s is true as the time relates to approximately 6 years ~ not just about the makeup or wardrobe but as a geisha you study music, language, dance and yes the traditional tea ceremony…also learning the proper way to speak, act and even walk in  in a floor-length kimono without tripping over her hem, and to pour sake so that her kimono sleeve doesn’t dip into the cup. In a group of men and geisha, she learns whom to greet first and how low to bow when greeting each person. She learns how to flatter a shy man, an arrogant man and a disinterested man with equal success…There is also the art of fixing your hair, wearing the kimono and the clogs that keep the hem from dragging on the ground without falling over…sadly in today’s world there are fewer than a thousand registered geishas as most females will go through that process as part of their family heritage or because it is a very romantic endeavor ♥  Side note is that all geisha females are single and if they decide to marry they must retire ~ also the first geishas were men, not women♥♥ Not a profession I would have ever considered as it takes most up to two hours just to get dressed not counting putting on makeup…

who is he…

He grew up during the Depression era ~ born to dirt poor farmers in Texas he found himself always on the wrong side of the law mostly due to his older brothers influence ~ arrested various times he spent time in prison yet he was still searching for something ~ love ♥ He found forever love with a 19-year-old waitress ~ both only want to be together yet desperate hard times called for him and her to rob, fleece, steal and eventually murder ~ those last acts of cold-blooded killings finally led to the ambush and murder of both♥  You and I both have read, watched movies about them ~ who is he ~ who is this man who was so desperate to find love he did whatever to be with her ~ why his name is Clyde Barrow, of course, ~ taking his pic is his forever love Bonnie Parker

two cuties…

Dena and I love to get the same type of clothes, skins, and other things with the exception we try not to look like twins or clones of each other…some say if you wear a certain type of head you look the same of others wearing that head ~ both of us disagree especially with the sliders that have been created on mesh heads giving you options to change the shape of your mouth, eyes and other facial features♥  the same can be said for skins as well as they will look not like the designer’s ad unless you have that exact shape and change very little you will look similar…nothing wrong with that as most mesh heads gives you choices ~ with all their sliders can make you look very unique as we all have seen the overblown lips, bums and breasts looking like they will explode at any moment…what Dena and I also agree on is clothing that is made for a specific body like Maitreya for example and you basically have to use a complete body alpha to hide 90% of the skin peeking through…before you comment I will say most of those clothes are not made by unknown designers or those just starting out in fashion either ~ and that makes it sadder that either some are just not taking the time to truly make the outfit fit with that specific body…yes, yes and yes try the demo before you spend your Lindens just there are those outfits that you want even with the knowledge you will have to use those alpha’s…those are both our thoughts on this and would love to hear what you think♥ our outfits come from my over the top gacha addition at The Epiphany hehehe ~ till next time just remember take time to breathe, be kind to yourself and each other ♥♥

Enjoying a moment…

Taking a moment just to sit, relax and really enjoy each other as our days have been hit or miss in SL lately…this is nice sipping on hot chocolate as he tells me how much snow he has gotten in RL as I look out my window and see nothing but rain ~ also gives me a chance to try some of the newest poses from Pose Fair ~ I wish that pose makers would give you pics of how it should look as I get confused wondering wtf is this pose to look like and end up just tossing it as not wanting myself to get frustrated either with the shot or the fit of the pose♥  The pose fair is still ongoing till the end of the month and I went overboard in the number of poses I did buy except that is nothing new along with all the gifts I did get a very nice selection of couples and single poses to use in the upcoming months ♥  That brings me my last comment I would like to make regarding Flickr, which is for me I cannot see myself spending hours upon hours looking, faving pics just to get a fave back…people are always recommending me to spend time faving everyone’s pics to get your numbers up ummm nope not gonna happen as when I fave a pic I truly love it ~ thats just how I have been and will be not saying this to suggest anything other than that ♥ with that I will leave you as RL is taking me away HUGZZZ♥♥

Bestie and Bride…

When planning our wedding we truly wanted to keep it very simple, which we had made the decision no best man or maid of honor ~ still I wanted a pic of my bestie and me together as she has been there for me…plus I just had to show off our gowns again as how many times will I ever wear this wedding dress again ~ as we all know if you do go to weddings only the bride wears white SL or RL the protocol is you never want to outshine the bride…the dress Dena is wearing a Christmas gift from Scandalize as well as her necklace that did come as a gift from Lindens Shop & Hop event…

Here is a portrait in beauty as Dena shows off her bouquet and dress by herself ~ even though we had no bridal party she was my honorary maid of honor and just love the bouquet that matched mine…I love the rich color of her dress it was such a compliment to the wedding color we chose Christmas Red as we all know the protocol of never wearing white to someone’s wedding as you never want to outshine the bride on her special day…BTW I will admit that I am a tad behind on my blogging since this should have been posted right after the wedding and I got it mixed up with my Sax girl post so please have patience while I do catch up ~ RL has kept me busy for a chance I am having a social life LOL ~ take care & will be back very soon ~ hugzz ♥♥
