Play Me

Play Me

She was morning, and I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying beside my bed
I softly said “Come take me”
For I’ve been lonely in need of someone
As though I’d done someone wrong somewhere
But I don’t know where, I don’t know where
Come lately

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me,
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night, and what was right
Became me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

[Instrumental]

And so it was that I came to travel
Upon a road that was thorned and narrow
Another place, another grace
Would save me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me……

It’s been a really quiet Saturday, so far…..and I don’t expect it’s going to change. I’m going to keep it simple in order to not overtax my brain, so it’s just a song for you today! And of course a photograph…..of me…….again. I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock here. There’s 2 sets with 7 poses in each set and they’re all a nice variety of standing, sitting and laying………and all perfectly sexy! The ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the sexy ‘Anyway Bodysuit’, in black, from Asteria. It comes with both a solid and a lace version here with the option to wear the belt or not. The metals are HUD driven with 4 options each for the belt and the neck.

The ‘Bloom’ hair is from TRUTH Hair.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m sitting on the ‘Distressed Piano’ from Nutmeg and the sheet music is also from them, and both are available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from Nomad.

I visited the ‘Cafe des Arts’ at Summers Wind for this picture. Imagin@rium Art has an exposition by Giancarlo Perini, from RL to SL, and it’s outside, plus there are some nice pieces inside, which is where I am here.

When All Else Fails……….

When All Else Fails..........

………hug the dog!

It’s a cure all for what ails you. Well, not for everything, but for matters of the mind or heart dog hugging is recommended by 8 out of 10 doctors. The other 2 doctors say ‘hug the cat’! I’ve always been one of those people that won’t go to other people for comfort, it’s always been an animal who understands me best. When I had cows, that’s where I went because my life always seemed better when I was with them. They accepted me completely, they were always happy to see me, and they could calm me down like nothing else. Some of you may laugh that my pet of choice has always been a cow, but anything can be a pet, mine were always just a bit bigger than most peoples. I have chickens I could go hug, but I’m not sure they’d be open to that, although I’m sure they’d get used to it if I do it enough. As they are now, they’re happiest just doing their chicken things. So, that leaves me with either the cats or the dog to hug. I like the cats, but none of them are really the hugging type, Hazel likes to just sit on my knee, Bob only likes to be petted, and poor stray Nipper, well…I can’t touch him….yet….but he’s getting much quieter. So….I guess the dog it is! I liked having a large dog for this, I could get on my knees and wrap my arms around them and rest my head on their shoulders, but since I only have my little girl, I have to pick her up and squeeze her tight against me. She doesn’t mind luckily, she’s a snuggly little thing, all 12 lbs of her. I sometimes wonder if people with significant others still have to resort to the dog for hugs, I’d like to think their partner would be the hugger of choice, but I guess there’d be times that the dog isn’t the one a person is fighting with at some point. I think the dog would be my second choice for hugs no matter what, if the dog wasn’t my only choice! 🙂

I’m a little sad today, it’s another cloudy day and life is just kind of a downer right now. But, Second Life always cheers me up….even if it’s just a little bit. I want to bring your attention to the current round of ~uber~, which ends on December 23. I know it’s getting to be near the end of the round, but the ‘Pied-a-Tere’ skybox from KraftWork is there, and it’s well worth dropping in to grab it! It’s an adorable little skybox, perfect for one or two people to live comfortably in one room. I prefer a one room build, myself, it’s a nice open floor plan and with a few privacy screens or even just using rugs, little separate areas can be created. The ‘Pied-a-Tere’ has a LI of 58 and a foot print of 15X15m, and the view outside is a very pretty one. It’s HUD driven with texture change on all the major parts so you can customize and make it your cozy little home. Also from KraftWork is the ‘Easy Like Sunday Morning’ sign, which comes in a blinking and non blinking version.

The majority of the decorating in my little home is from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom‘ from ~BAZAR~. It’s a huge bedroom set including the bed(with lots and lots of adult or PG animations,whichever you prefer), chairs, lights artwork, cabinet, candle bottles, men’s and women’s clothes racks, stacks of books, rug, bicycle decor, night stands, clock, headphones, paper bag, men’s and women’s shoe decor, and typewriter. It really is an incredible set and very reasonably priced.

I’ve added house plants from {what next} and dust bunny.

The ‘ROCK’ sign is from a gacha set from .:revival:..

The ‘vintage radio’ is from the ‘Summer is Gone’ gacha set from ..::THOR::...

The ‘old radiator’ is from .junk. but I don’t think it’s available any more.

I’m wearing the ‘Sophia Bustier & Draped Dress from Asteria. The ‘NO.SHELTER hair from NO.MATCH. And as always, the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m in deep thought using the ‘weary’ pose from Del May.

I’ve added a bit of lighting from my much used LumiPro.

Come On….I’d Rather Be Shopping!

Come On....I'd Rather Be Shopping!

I told myself that I’d get a post done today before I go to the Thereafter Event. I really really want to go to it because I think deep down I have survivalist down deep in me just waiting to emerge at the right time. I’m sure of it, what else can explain my need to stockpile dry goods and extra supplies. I’m not a hoarder, no way, that’s a whole different thing! I know, I know, you’re saying I’m a hoarder, but really if something happens like a total loss of the power grid I’ll be prepared. I’m ready, bring it on! I say to the world, ‘do your damnedest, just try to break me’! I do, I say that all the time. It usually comes after I’m done crying when the truck won’t start! 😀

Ok…..I’m going to type fast and not correct typos, how does that grab ya? LoL. First off, the ‘Nerissa Nails’ are from Slipper Originals and have been at Designer Circle, but it’s over today. Yea…I’m a little slow…so sorry, Elle! They’re full mesh nails fitted for the Maitreya bento hands. All you need to do is turn off the Maitreya nails and apply these and you’re done! They’re HUD driven with all kinds of colour options, including being able to colours the enamel of the nails individually! The stars and anchors can be on or not, and the stripes can be coloured separately, too. They’re perfect for a nautical outfit, or just lounging in your undies!

Ok, the new round of Men Only Monthly doesn’t start until the 20th, but I’m giving you a heads up on the new release from !NFINITY. The ‘Sharktooth Necklace’ is exclusive to MOM and it’s perfectly detailed and textured. It’s completely resizable via drop down menu so even though it starts out fitted for men, it was easily reduced down to my size! There’s 3 tooth options, 2 metals, and 4 cord colours and it’s 100% original mesh! Remember, MOM starts on the 20th.

The ‘Irina Shirt and Panties’ is a gorgeous creation from Asteria and this, and also a ruffled corset, are exclusive to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017, which only has four more days to go! You have until August 21st to shop the MBA Fair….don’t wait to long!

The ‘KOMA’ hair, from the Blacks pack, is from Argrace! One of my favourite short styles!

As per usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa along with the ‘Lara’ mesh body, including bento hands, from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 12 colour options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ Catwa applier from Buzzeri. It’s available now at the ‘Blush‘ event!

My eyes are one of the ten colours in the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set from Zombie Suicide.

The ‘Two Initial Charm Bracelet’, on my left wrist, is from the ‘Charm Bracelet’ gacha set from Izzie’s!

This pose is from the ‘Get Down’ singles beach poses from Aerial Poses and Props.
