I can’t believe it’s October already and with the Canadian Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, it’s time to take a moment and think of all the things to be thankful for. I don’t like to appreciate my blessings just once a year, I try to think of everything I have to be grateful for every day. I wonder, if more people were thankful for what they had instead of always wanting more, would the world be a happier place? We’re bombarded everywhere we look with what we need to make life more enjoyable, right from cars, beer, electronics, and even our looks. It’s all just a marketing tool to sell things that no one needs, and it works as witnessed by the rise in consumerism. There’s nothing I need in my life, I have a roof over my head, it’s not big and fancy but it keeps the warm in and the rain out. I have a vehicle to get me from point A to point B. It’s 20 years old but it runs and my truck and I have a long history together. I have food on my table……I grow and raise most of it myself, and I’m very thankful that my health allows that. I do have the extras in life like a computer, smartphone, and TV with cable, but I could live without them if I had to. I’m not rich, but I have enough…..and really….since I’ve never seen anyone’s possessions disappear when they pass on, I’m pretty sure you can’t take it with you!
This picture pretty much sums up how I think a perfect day could look like. It’s a gorgeous fall evening and my cat is keeping occupied watching the Koi swimming peacefully in the pond while the pups wait for me to give them a bath and play with them. I can’t imagine a life without animals…..they are the constant in my life that always make me smile. I’m surrounded by everything needed to bring peace to me and it’s all from │T│L│C│. I’ll start with the ‘Garden with Wings’ which is exclusive to Rock Your Rack 2017, a Second Life event that raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research. The garden includes the pond, flower beds, bench, and the butterflies flitting carelessly around can be turned on/off by the owner. The lighting is also can also be turned on/off with a touch. It has a land impact of 87 and is modifiable, but do take care when modifying. The ‘Butterfly Watering Can’ is a hunt gift with 100% of it’s 10L$ cost being donated to the cause. And also having 100% of it’s cost donated is the ‘Butterfly Bed’, a nice little flower bed that includes lighting, butterflies, and gorgeous Hydrangeas in full bloom. While at Rock Your Rack 2017 you can also purchase the ‘Ginger Cat’, who stands on the edge of the pond and watches the fish and often playfully dips it’s paw in the water in hope of catching one of the fish. I played the ‘Animated Puppies’ gacha at the │T│L│C│ main store and scored the ‘Puppies Bathtime, RARE’ which has the 3 puppies waiting patiently for their bath. While I was at the main store I couldn’t resist Pack 3, of 4 free swimming, feedable Koi. I was a little worried that I’d have trouble with placing them in the pond and get them swimming happily, but I had no problems following the directions that are included. I know you can’t see them here, but they are really nice addition to any pond. Rock Your Rack 2017 runs until October 14.
