Let the rain fall…

Let the rain fall

I love a good rain storm, especially in the summer time. There’s something incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring about it all.

Storms always bring out a bit of nostalgia in me as I look back to my childhood, standing on the deck with my parents and watching a storm roll in over the lake. Even if it was long past bedtime, we’d throw on yellow slickers and stand outside until the rain reached us. Maybe someday I’ll get the chance to pass on that tradition.

This is what summer dreams are made of

This is what summer dreams are made of

I haven’t posted in awhile. We’ve been so busy since we got back from vacation, and when I’m not exhausted, I’m too hot to even think about getting on the computer. It’s now a requirement that the next house has central A/C. But summer is coming to a close and the hubbers has been kind enough to set me up on his PC so that when it’s super hot I can at least sit in front of the window unit.

Enough of my rambling and ONTO THE PICTURE! Summer is my favorite season. Autumn comes in at a close second followed by winter and spring.

I grew up near Lake Michigan, so for me, summer means a lot of time at the beach with family. It’s the sunshine and the sand. Splashing in the waves. Wrapping yourself in gigantic towels and eating fresh blueberries, watermelon, or ice cream. Funny tan lines, beach grass crafts, bonfires with s’mores and falling asleep to the crashing of waves on the sand. All the windows were open unless it was raining and the A/C was barely ever touched. Most days the breeze or the wind coming off the lake was enough to keep you cool.

And now I live out East, where the humidity is higher and there are no nice lake breezes. And what passes for beach time out here is the Atlantic shore. Which….eww. (Sorry if you’re a fan of the shore but I don’t get it.) It’s a 2-hour drive – which is actually more like 3-5 with all the traffic unless you leave at the crack of dawn. Now the boardwalk is fun, I love the shops and restaurants and the rides. But then you get to the beach and have to pick your way across what feels like a mile of hot sand, around medical waste and trash is not particularly appealing. It’s not really even worth swimming. I don’t mind the ocean but up here we do not have the nice clean, blue waters of Florida and the Caribbean. Run in, cool off, and usually I come out feeling grosser than before I went in. I’ll take a polite pass.

It’s been relatively cool here the last couple of days so I’m getting in all the pics I can.  It’s nice to be able to walk into the office and not instantly break out into a sweat. It’s going to get back up into the 90’s again later this week but I’ll be on vacation so it doesn’t matter! Wheee! Sorry. Spazz moment over.

I was feeling super cute after the last picture I did as a dolly and I don’t normally do the cutesy thing so I figured one more wouldn’t hurt. I did have to inject a little bit of my typical style into it though giving me this cute kind of punk-rock doll. I’m enjoying this look so I may stay doll for a little bit longer but then again, I may change back to my regular look tomorrow.

Funny story. I bought the doll key from Hopscotch thinking it was just a normally scripted key but oops it’s RLV enabled. After admitting my blunder to my hubby followed by an explanation of what RLV is, he has a sudden renewed interest in SL. LOL. Go figure. I expect the next few weeks to be interesting, to say the least.

Sexy Time

 

Mark&Kaiden062017

Just a quick pic that I did last night. I’ve been working for weeks with the hubby and helping him get his avatar up to date with all the new mesh body parts and such. We’re finally at a place where he doesn’t mind the look so I logged him in last night while he was busy working and took a snap before he decides to change everything again since he’s still on the hunt for a hair he loves. He doesn’t hate it so small wins right? Until next time!

Until next time!

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

 

This place.

This godforsaken town.

Outsiders don’t get it. They never will. Everyone wants to visit but nobody wants to stay. And while it seems lovely and idyllic on the outside, the truth is that there’s little to offer those of us who weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. It’s a lifelong sentence of drudgery and mediocrity. The rich drink their champagne and party while the blue collar families slowly drown. Efforts to revive the city have done little to boost the economy and so we are left waiting, wanting more. Wishing, for the wind to sweep us away to anywhere but here…
