Sunrise

Sunrise, sunrise
Looks like mornin’ in your eyes
But the clocks held 9:15 for hours
Sunrise, sunrise
Couldn’t tempt us if it tried
‘Cause the afternoon’s already come and gone

And I said hoo…
To you

Surprise, surprise
Couldn’t find it in your eyes
But I’m sure it’s written all over my face
Surprise, surprise
Never something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day

And I said hoo…
To you

Now good night
Throw its cover down
On me again
Ooh and if I’m right
It’s the only way
To bring me back

Hoo…
To you
Hoo…

Sunrise‘ ~Norah Jones~

I’m a morning person by nature, so I’ve seen many sunrises in my life. Although it’s a little more difficult to be up before the sun this time of year in my part of the world. The longest day of the year has come and gone and it’s always a shock to know that the hours of sunlight will start getting shorter and we slowly march towards winter, again. But, I don’t want to think about that this morning. It’s cloudy, but the sun’s been up for about 20 minutes and it’s looking like it’s going to be another hot one. We’re in the midst of a hot and dry spell here, and no matter what anyone says….yes….it’s a dry heat…….but it’s just plain old hot! I do appreciate not being in a humid part of the country, it does make it worse, but when the sun burns down……feeling like it’s scorching everything it touches, I just want to be inside where it’s a little bit cool and dark. But right now…..the suns behind a cloud and it’s still behind the trees, not forcing me to close the blinds, so I look out and see another day ahead, full of possibilities! What’s not to be happy about…..I’m not pushing up daisies, I have a hot cup of coffee in front of me, I’m loved, and I live in one of the best countries in the world…..yup……life is good!

It’s early morning in this shot, and I’ve had a hot cup of coffee brought to me and as I look out on the vista before me I think of all the good things in my life. Liz does look cute in the morning….in a cute little nightie and tousled hair! The ‘Eloen Nightie’ in ‘buttercup’ is from [QE] Designs and available now at the Midsummer Enchantment event. The set includes the nightie and panties and has a dreamy look that’s both sexy and innocent at the same time. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and is HUD controlled with 3 nightie and 2 pantie options. The Midsummer Enchantment event runs until July 9.

The ‘M116’ hair is from .:CHEVEUX:..

My little tattoo is ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, my skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’ve combined a pose from the ‘Fashion 01’ set of poses from C O R P U S with the attachable coffee cup in the ‘Santiago’ set of poses from Ana Poses, to create this look!

Fire And The Flood

I was only walking through your neighborhood
Saw your light on, honey; in the cold I stood
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

I been getting used to waking up with you
I been getting used to waking up here
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Since we met I feel a lightness in my step
You’re miles away but I still feel you
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are
Late at night when you can’t fall asleep
I’ll be lying right beside you counting sheep
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Now listen here she said
Boy when you know you’ll know
And I know

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Fire And The Flood‘ ~Vance Joy~

The June round of FaMESHed Go is up and going strong, it’s a HUD based shopping event taking you to the main stores of all participating creators. I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here and it’s just in time for the summertime fun. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom and there’s tons of colours, including the printpack. The top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only thing covering the girls, so you can be a little more daring if you wish. This is one time I’m not showing the rear view, but it’s definitely worthy of seeing. You’ll probably get to see it in one of my shameless butt shots in the future.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, 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.

This is pose 1 from the Tatiana’ gacha set from Poses.

I’m at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

Hold Back The River

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But it’s there that I should’ve been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we’re caught against the tide
Those distant days all flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?
Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river
Hold…

Hold Back The River‘ ~James Bay~

I was going to try to find a song that related to the mood of this picture, but since it’s Saturday and I’m in a good mood, I figured I’d pick a song I like and go with that, regardless of matching the picture. I’ve always written blog posts with feeling, matching my mood of moment. I can’t say ‘mood of the day’ because I never have one mood for an entire day, well I do sometimes……but it seems that only the truly dark moods can last for days without being altered. Whereas, the happy moods always seem a little bit fragile and can leave me in a heartbeat and be replaced with usually something not so happy. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good mood get better in that way. My moods can plummet from the slightest things, usually having to do with others in my life. I’ve always wondered if everyone is like this, and they’re just better at controlling it, I’ve never been able to control it…..I’m just full of free flowing emotion that can get swept away with the tide so easily. But today is a good day, although……it’s only 5:30 AM…..I’ve had coffee and not seen or spoken to anyone yet….after this…all bets are off! 😀

The main thing to focus on in this picture is the pose! I saw the ad for this set of poses from IntoXx and knew I had to attach my PocketGacha HUD and work at getting it. The June round of PocketGacha started yesterday and I haven’t done much shopping on it yet, since I was so focused on getting this RARE pose. Remember when people used to say, ‘talk to the hand’? I haven’t heard that in a long time! For your copy of the PocketGacha HUD just drop in to the PG HQ and you can get right at all the gacha fun. You can find more poses for men, women and couples at the IntoXx mainstore.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

I’m wearing the ‘Sahara Dress’ from Tetra, I love the long cool look of it!

As always, 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 at the gorgeous Oboeru sim for this shot.

5 Years Time

Oh well in five years time we could be walking round a zoo
With the sun shining down over me and you
And there’ll be love in the bodies of the elephants too
And I’ll put my hands over your eyes, but you’ll peep through

And there’ll be sun sun sun all over our bodies
And sun sun sun all down our necks
And sun sun sun all over our faces
And sun sun sun so what the heck!

Cos I’ll be laughing at all your silly little jokes
And we’ll be laughing about how we used to smoke
All those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine
Cos it’s what we needed to have a good time

And it was fun fun fun when we were drinking
It was fun fun fun when we were drunk
And it was fun fun fun when we were laughing
It was fun fun fun, oh it was fun

Oh well I look at you and say
It’s the happiest that I’ve ever been
And I’ll say I no longer feel I have to be James Dean
And she’ll say
“Yah well I feel all pretty happy too”
And I’m always pretty happy when I’m just kicking back with you

And it’ll be love love love all through our bodies
And love love love all through our minds
And it be Love love love all over her face
And Love love love all over mine

Although maybe all these moments are just in my head
I’ll be thinking ‘bout them as I’m lying in bed
And all that I believe, it might not even come true
But in my mind I’m havin’ a pretty good time with you

In five years time I might not know you
In five years time we might not speak
In five years time we might not get along
In five years time you might just prove me wrong

Oh there’ll be love love love
Wherever you go
There’ll be love

5 Years Time‘ ~Noah and the Whale~

In 5 years time I have no idea where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing. If I think back 5 years I don’t remember ever thinking about where I’d be 5 years later, which is now……so I guess I can’t be disappointed or surprised by anything that’s going on in my life. Back in June of 2013 I was a year and a half old in Second Life, I was probably wearing flexi hair and was all system, or what I now call…..classic avatar! I was 5 years younger, which I’m sure everyone was…..I don’t think I’m the only person on earth that suffers from getting older! In all honesty I can’t remember much about that year……I don’t think anything happened to make it stand out from the rest. So….if I think ahead 5 years, it makes it 2023, which is an incomprehensible number…..it seems like yesterday the biggest worry in the world was Y2K! Oh, if only it was still that way, instead of what’s going on in the world today. I hope my family are all still with me and healthy and the world isn’t in the turmoil it is today. I hope Second Life is still thriving and I can continue to live a virtual life with Liz keeping busy with what she keeps busy with! Oh…and may she age well, being one of those women that everyone whispers, ‘I can’t believe how old she is…she looks so young’! Will I still be doing butt shots? Hell yea………I’m going to flaunt IT while I got IT………and I might flaunt IT even a little bit after IT’s gone!

Today’s shot is taken at one of my favourite sims, Isle of May. I’m just kicking back a bit and enjoying the sights. I’m using a pose from the ‘Still Waters’ set of pose/props from Le Poppycock. The prop for the set is a rowboat, but I’ve managed to look pretty darn comfortable and relaxed in a chair here on the sim.

The ‘Luma Tube Top’ is one of my all time favourites from *Just BECAUSE*. This print is just gorgeous……but I love most orange tones!

The ‘Miyeon’ hair is from MONSO and available now at FaMESHed.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, 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.

My eyes are from the ‘Soma’ set from Zombie Suicide and my eye make up is from the ‘Sydney’ pack from La Boheme.

Take Me Away

Imagine myself in an automobile
A hundred miles an hour, only me at the wheel
I want it to shine, to be only mine
The engine has to be just one of a kind

How many dollars do I need sir?
You know I sure don’t have a lot
There must be something we can work out
Well, I’ll take it anyway

I guess I could make room for one, a bottle of rum
You and me together riding into the sun
Live without care, with the wind in my hair
I’m driving through the desert, yeah I’ll go anywhere

Take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take me, any place today

Imagine myself in an automobile
A hundred miles an hour if you know how I feel
Alone with my mind, leave my worries behind
I might even reach the border, it’s just a matter of time

I said take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take me, any place today

Oh I’m going to San Diego, here I come
San Francisco, it won’t be long
Sacramento, yeah in the sun
I just might go

Oh, I said I’m going to San Diego and San Jose
San Fransisco and hang by the bay
Sacramento, yeah all the way
I just might go all the way to Mexico
I just might go all the way down to Mexico

Automobile‘ ~Kaleo~

I’m so glad I had a childhood before technology! It’s a good thing, because it’s not like I had a choice in the matter, we all just kind of happen when we’re meant to. When I look back on the first road trip I remember the family taking, and then think about parents today and what they keep kids occupied with on road trips, I have to chuckle. Nowadays it’s get the earbuds and throw ‘Finding Nemo’ into the DVD player or play games on the phone and everyone just stay in your own world. The first trip I remember took place when I was about 5 or 6, just a young’n, the destination was British Columbia to see my aunt and uncle and it was Mum and Dad and my sister and I. I remember being super excited because Mum had bought us new stuff for the trip. We had pads of paper with new pencil crayons and regular crayons, I had a bunch of new little plastic horses to play with, and the pièce de résistance was a blowy thing. I remember it perfectly, it was hand held, made of beige plastic and had little piano keys on one side in all kinds of colours. I have no idea what it was called, but my sister and I both had one. The idea was to play it like a little keyboard while blowing in it, but needless to say the blowing in it was easy, the playing it and making music, not so much. As an adult I’ve asked myself this many times, why………when parents normally don’t want the kids to have toys that make noise, would Mum buy, not one….but two noisy toys for us? I like to think that my sister and I were really good kids and were generally quiet, so the little bit of noise we may make, wouldn’t bother anyone. I don’t think I’ve ever asked her, I’m going to……see what her take on it was. Back in those days a road trip consisted of lots of nibbles, new fun toys and watching for license plates from other provinces and States. For some reason I remember watching for cows too……even at that age I loved cows! 😀 A road trip now isn’t that much different for me, there’s nibbles, and watching for cows, I still check out license plates but I don’t have the blowy thing anymore, now it’s just singing as loudly as possible every good driving song I know.

As you can see, it appears Liz is on a road trip! She’s ended up in the back seat, but that’s OK…..lots of time for thinking and watching the miles pass by! I’m in the ’64 Chev Impala SS which is in front of the diner at Mother Road.

I want you to take a look at my featured item today! It’s the ‘Jaclyn Earrings’ from Elle Boutique and exclusive to the Vintage Fair. The Vintage Fair is an event that I look forward to and with it only here once a year, I’m always excited when it finally opens! It’s everything retro and Elle has created these earrings that are right outa the ’70s! They’re HUD driven with 16 colours for the hoops, 7 metals and they’re also SL materials enabled. They resize on touch and oh…did I mention they’re really great looking? The Vintage Fair runs until June 24.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and it’s available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Sabrina Top’ is from /erratic/. I love this top……so summery and cool!

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As always 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.

The pose is from the ‘Maya’ set of poses from RK Poses.
