Winters Wind

Sweet Dreams

I’m going to close my eyes for just a few minutes, give my mind a rest and maybe drift off to where anything is possible! I take a deep breath and slowly exhale, trying to rid my body and mind of stress. I make a mental note to relax each part of me and to feel the tension flow out of my body. OK….this is good, I’m feeling calm and peaceful. I slow my breathing and let myself go, wanting just a short nap to refresh and regroup for the day. I’m falling, the fresh breeze and sunshine on my skin is the only thing I know. As I drift off a thought occurs to me, I didn’t pay my phone bill, and it’s due! I should go do that! No, it’s OK….it can wait another half hour! But if I don’t do it right away I might forget to do it later! I won’t forget, just relax and go back to drifting off to sleep. I breath in then exhale slowly shifting into a more comfortable position, nope….now this isn’t going to work! My eyes are open wide and I know the moment has passed that I could fall asleep and get a nap! Why do my attempts at naps always seem to end this way? I’m usually up between 4 and 5 AM, so a nap would be nice, but I just can’t control my thoughts for longer than a few minutes! OK…I may as well get up and get going, again! And so it goes, another nap ended before it even began!

The June round of The Liaison Collaborative is on and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Stay Cool’ pose prop gacha set! It’s right full of fun in the sun summer activities, with props including this mat and magazine, a tube to enjoy water activities and a fan for some cool air on a hot day! They’re all fun and unique with great poses! The Liaison Collaborative runs until June 30.

I’m wearing the ‘Del Sol Bikini Collection’ from !APHORISM! here! It’s the blue satin version and it’s compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The ‘Hani’ hair from [monso] is so cute. This is from the blacks pack and it’s unrigged for easy fitting!

The rest of me is the Alex mesh head from Logo with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(soon to be ‘Avada’). I’m also wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

I’m at my home in ‘Winters Wind‘(which has a couple vacancies right now) and I’m laying on ‘The Jetty’ by IMMERSIV.

My November Guest

My Sorrow, when she’s here with me,
Thinks these dark days of autumn rain
Are beautiful as days can be;
She loves the bare, the withered tree;
She walks the sodden pasture lane.

Her pleasure will not let me stay.
She talks and I am fain to list:
She’s glad the birds are gone away,
She’s glad her simple worsted grey
Is silver now with clinging mist.

The desolate, deserted trees,
The faded earth, the heavy sky,
The beauties she so truly sees,
She thinks I have no eye for these,
And vexes me for reason why.

Not yesterday I learned to know
The love of bare November days
Before the coming of the snow,
But it were vain to tell her so,
And they are better for her praise

The words don’t come easily today. So, I give you a poem by Robert Frost that is fitting for me today.

The Sexy Amanda Outfit by LsR Moda is exclusive to the current round of Designer Showcase. It includes the pants/boots combo and the top and are compatible with the Maitreya, SLink and Belleza mesh bodies! I love the top with it’s one shoulder off, it remindds me of my younger days!

Also at Designer Showcase are a couple of pose packs. The first picture is using one of the many poses from the Runway 2 pack from ALIUD. The second picture is using one of the poses from the Hippie Female Poses set from BAXE. Both are exclusive to Designer Showcase!

I came across the Soul Flowers tattoo from Carol G. Tattoo Wear on Market Place. It covers nicely over the hips with an intricate floral design! It comes in four tones and is Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP, and SLink body compatible.

The Miss Coco(browns)hair is from Vanity Hair.

I’m using the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Irina skin in pale tone from itGIrls. I also have the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the elegant1 hands from SLink on.

I’m comfy in my seaside cottage at the Winters Wind sim for these pictures.

All Hell for a Basement

And now I’m free to go
But time cannot remove
The only life I know
Now only time will prove
Yes, only time will prove

If I have lost my way
‘Cause I hear a tale
About a heaven in Alberta
Where they’ve got all hell for a basement

All Hell For A Basement ~Big Sugar~

There’s a few lines from one of my favourite songs! That’s about all I can offer you on this chilly Sunday morning!

I love this top from Stories&Co. by Flowey! The Lisbeth Tee looks like a few of my favourites in real life! It’s a well worn top with some incredible illustrations done by Celeste ‘Jim’ Forwzy. It comes in ten solid colours and five prints, is compatible with the Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies, and all perfectly comfy for a Sunday at home with movies and popcorn!! It’s available now at the current round of n21.

And what’s the best thing to wear on a Sunday at home in front of the TV? Why leggings of course! For this I opted for the Mermaid Leggings from {MYNX}! They come in six colours and are TMP, Maitreya, SLink, Belleza mesh bodies, and classic avatars compatible. Love!!

The pose I’m using here is from the Bowties are Cool pack from don’t freak out!.

I want to mention where I’m at here in this photo! You all know I was basking in the sunshine at Summerwind South for most of the summer….well Summerwind South is no more, but I now have a fabulous cabin on the beach at Winters Wind! There’s two new sims to explore at Summers Wind and Winters Wind. There’s residential, commercial, and recreational areas for everyone to explore, plus some really great areas just begging for picture taking! I think I’ve found my forever home! 🙂

I’m still in the process of moving in but a few things I have behind me are the Himalayan Salt Lamp from [free bird]. If you want a diverse collection of gachas, [free bird] is where you want to be! The leather chair and pillow is from floorplan. / brocante.. The Pedestal Fan in bronze is from [tmk] and the Vintage Frame/lemonade is from tarte.

As always, I’m using the Maitreya, Lara mesh body, the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the flat feet from SLink.
