You Just Never Know What You’ll See!

You Just Never Know What You'll See!

Have you ever wondered what goes on outside overnight? I don’t know about anyone else, but once it’s dark outside, there could be any number of things going on out there! Usually things that I’d rather not know about, like an ax murderer, aliens, or worst of all….ghosts! But, I had the bright idea a year or so ago to get a trail cam to set up in the yard to capture anything that might be wandering through. My one fear is that I’ll see something that I’d rather not know about, but so far…so good! There’s usually a deer or two, a skunk or three, or a coyote. Oh….and the odd stray cat, and sometimes a raccoon or a bunny. The coyotes are the ones I hate to see, they’ve become so brave in around the yard that it’s a little disconcerting to see them casually walk around. A couple evenings ago I stepped out onto my step and came face to face with one about 30 feet from me. He didn’t run or get scared, he just stood and stared at me. I have no doubt he was on his way to see if there was a chicken out to steal, so I tried to scare him into running away, but he just loped off a little bit and then stood looking at me again. There are guns on the premises, but I really hate guns, so needless to say the worst I could do was tell him to Eff off and try to look scary, which some people would say comes naturally to me! 😛 This morning it was a whole new ball game though……there on the camera, was a big old horse…just wandering around in the dark( I don’t have horses at the moment), and behind it….following along was a little horse! I knew whose they were once the little one showed itself, so it was just a matter of waiting for daylight and scouting around so I could tell the neighbour where he could find them. They had moved on up the field to the north and were heading east when I found them. So, if the scariest thing I capture on the camera is a little bit of wildlife or a farm animal or two…that’s fine…it’s those 2 legged monsters I really don’t want to see out there, skulking around in the dark!

There’s something in my front yard here that I’d be really shocked to see! The ‘Wicked Legs’ from {MYNX} are exclusive to the October round of The Chapter Four and add a really nice touch to your Halloween decorating! They’re 100% original mesh and they’re copy/modify so you can adjust the thigh shadows to where you need them. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month!

October is full of Halloween events and goings on, and [QE] Designs is in a couple of them with some seasonal decor! I’m showing the ‘Wire Punkin Set’ here, which includes 4 styles of wire pumpkins and lots of options! They’re colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the pumpkin, 4 stem colours and 5 light colours. These are exclusive to the Mad Circus 3 Halloween & Gacha Fair, which runs until October 31. Also from [QE] Designs is the ‘Fall Punkin Set v2’, which includes 4 shapes with 8 colours each via drop down menu. They’re copy/mod so you can cover your whole yard in pumpkins if you want! These are available at Trick or Treat Lane, which opens today and runs until November 3, as well as Mad Circus 3.

Another event for October to be on the lookout for is Season of the Witch! It starts tomorrow(October 14) and runs until November 4, and Raindale has the ‘Charfell Cabin’ exclusive to the event. This cute cabin has a footprint of 10X15 and a land impact of 40, and it’s modifiable to be resized as needed. It comes on a platform(23X23 footprint and 8 land impact) which is HUD driven with 5 grass textures, and it can be removed if needed! I’m using it here! The cabin is scripted with the Kool Door system so you can limit access. This cabin has a really unique roof line and some great accents, so if you want to get a full view you can check out Keira’s flickr site!

I’ve used the chairs from ‘Kate’s Vintage Chairs’ from Nutmeg, which is a set of six chairs, all with really unique shapes and detailing.

The ‘Deathly Tree, orange lights’ is from Refuge and available now at Salem. It’s in a gothic style stone urn with two ravens standing at it’s base. The lights can be set to blink or to stay on.

You can’t see them well, but I’ve added the ‘Black Baby Birds’ from +Half-Deer+ on the step of the cabin. These are cute little black chicks that come with various groupings and also singles, plus some wearable ones too! These are also at Salem.

I’m using grasses from Raindale and Kidd Grass here.

Let It Go

Let It Go

There are a few things in life that I’ve learned. Of course, things don’t always sink in the first time around, but the art of ‘letting it go’ is an important one for me. I went for a lot of years carrying around anger, hate, grief, and lots of other emotions that did nothing but drag me down. There came a time that I found out that a person can only keep so much inside. I hated a lot of people for what I believed they did to me and I held grudges and vowed to never forget. You know what? The only one that hurt was myself. The other person didn’t seem bothered by it, if they were even aware of how I felt at all. I learned that the most important thing I could do for myself is forgive. I don’t mean you have to phone someone up and say it to them. When I chose to forgive it wasn’t for them, it was for my inner peace. Once I’d forgiven the person for what they did, I could then let it go. It doesn’t make me a weak person, it makes me a happy one. I read once the question, ‘would you rather be right or happy?’ and it really hit home. I may be the one who was wronged, but to remain firm in knowing I was right did nothing but keep the anger or hurt festering inside me. I’ve worked on forgiving everyone who I feel have hurt me, and it’s rather freeing. Think of it as taking a balloon filled with helium and putting all of your pain and anger in it, then on a lovely fall day hold it up, close your eyes, and let it go!

I want to say how honoured I am to be chosen the Slipper Originals Blogger of the Month for August. Elle has a few wonderful ways of celebrating this milestone and one of them is naming one of her creations after the blogger. So, I’m really proud to show you the ‘Liz Bento Rings’ which are exclusive to the current round of Designer Circle! The set includes four rings per hand and the HUD for them is HUGE! Each hand can be customized separately as well as each ring on each finger. So if you want to mix your metals….go for it! If you want to take some of the set off, you can do that! And if you just want to wear one little pinkie ring, consider it done!! Thank you, Elle, your creations are what make blogging for you such a joy!

The ‘Coco Leather Jacket’ is an older release from LEGAL INSANITY but I think it’s completely timeless! There’s nothing more comfy than a leather jacket that’s been worn enough to feel like it’s giving a hug. The top can be worn with the jacket, or not, it’s up to you and it’s HUD driven with 12 colours to pick from plus two metals, and…….the sleeves of the jacket can be changed to fabric with 7 colours to customize. It comes in 7 colours and this is the brown version. You’ll find it at the LEGAL INSANITY main store.

The ‘Ribbon Collar’ is my choker of choice! It’s from !NFINITY and comes in three metals with each being HUD driven with 7 ribbon colours.

The ‘MAYU’ hair is my favourite breezy hairdo. It’s from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the fifteen colours from the ‘Dark Metallic Eyeshadow’ HUD from Izzie’s.

This is the ‘Aloft’ pose from Del May. It’s expressive without being over done! Perfect in my opinion. 🙂

The pretty balloon(you’ll have to take my word that it’s a pretty balloon) is from the ‘Garden Party Set’ of the ‘Fairylight Balloons’ from +Half-Deer+.

I haven’t been to Hazardous for awhile so thought it was time to stop in and enjoy the view.

Relax....and Have a Peaceful Sunday!

So it’s Sunday! It’s the day that is like no other, it is a true day of rest! A day when we should be able to sit contentedly over a good cup of coffee indefinitely!

It’s not a day to look ahead at what needs doing….or what is in the future, but to enjoy, completely, who you are and what you are doing right now!!
