diabetic fund rasier_001

Hey, how was your day?  Decided to drop in to the Diabetes Fund raiser in Second Life. It is a good cause, of course since I was there, I felt I should look around.  Found myself a fun costume.

I wasn’t ready to  do a lot, change worry about hair style etc. so you can see, I chose accordingly, the virtual world, is no different from our day-to-day, we still have to deal with choices.

My ribs are showing.  You can’t see how hard I had to resist having one of the special Halloween cupcakes I got for hubby.  LOL it was hard, but knowing I had just committed to not having dessert for a month, and I mean JUST….  I settled for the plastic spiders on the icing.

I actually took up needle and thread today, instead of applying more bond, or glue to the fabric piece I was working on.  I sewed the part of the roof that had not bonded properly to the background material

Now I’m at a dance with some fab music happening while I am busy sharing time with you.  Multi-tasking at its best.  You can see my avatar is dancing behind Nick, he and his wife Mel are dressed in identical outfits.   They are rather clever.  The party is just getting underway.  Will go and be social.  Meanwhile, we are ending October, tomorrow we start into a very busy month… some time soon we hope to here when the operations will be. I do know that we already have a lot of medical appointments set up for November.

Please understand if I am not as regular with my posts…. I will do my best, because sharing time with you all, is good for me.  Over the years, you have all inspired me at some time or another.  I love the connection we share.  You are all the best!!!

Travel safe my friend – goodbye

goodbye Lizzie 9.18.17_008.pngLizzie was an artist with a thirst to create, not just anything, everything she did was alive and vivid, just like her. Her creativity knew no bounds.  When she first was told she had cancer, she said, OK, let’s deal with this.. and did what she needed to do, she beat the odds.  Once, twice, the little vixen fought her way to live another day.

goodbye Lizzie 9.18.17_005

This last fight, she grew weary. She laid down her brush,  with the quiet dignity of the true diva she was, she spread her wings and took flight beyond the heavens into the “night”..

goodbye Lizzie 9.18.17_009

We will miss you Liz, your energy and spirit,  a diva  warrior like no other,  will forever glow in our hearts.  Rest in peace.

when is fantasy real

China at Wash sale 4.3.17_002

AT home I have a recliner, but basically I sit around with my feet up, and my whippet is never far..  .

Yup I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk, working on the computer, or doing something with my paints and stuff.   In this picture, I was trying on shoes.. I did go an buy them. (some things never change)

q mermaid 4.7._004

I watch programs that take me underwater, and show me creatures that live in the sea.  Except, in this case, I was swimming underwater, my avatar was swimming with mermaids..  ah ha!  that could be a bit of fantasy… but… I was there, via my AV .. I was the avatar and the mermaids and other swimmers were friends, it was a benefit to raise money for a charity RLF  (Relay for  Life)   hmmm sounds like a familiar event.  we were all there visiting in real time.

q mermaid 4.7._001

I am the cute one ( sorry E) Siamese cats are just that much more adorable.  Especially the Dinky avatar ones. =^_^=

Now, true in the day-to-day world, I am not going to put on  a sea witch outfit and jump into the Ottawa River, or the St. Lawrence. (river that divides some of Canada from the USA)  but my friends are from all over the world, and we really do meet and chat in-world when these events take place.

We wake up every day, and often we are always doing something within a certain mile radius of our home base  With the social media blossoming like it has, we get to stay in touch with so many friends, and their friends, whether they live close to home or not.  Golly gee, now they even  have to warn us about “fake news”

So…… I ask you again….  when is fantasy real? =^_^=   gives a Shirley Temple smile, and skips off the screen.  (for now)

chasing the Mad Hatter

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_008.png

It all started out innocently enough. I heard about a place where there was a possibility I could run into, or meet up with the Mad Hatter, and if really lucky maybe Alice herself.   had to crawl through a door to do that, and fall down a big hole, but I was game.

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_002

Once there what had started out easy enough, was proving to be a big confusing, there were no road signs, in fact, there had been a note earlier in the game saying I should follow the path.  And it would be more fun if I had my settings at night.. but you can see, I wasn’t that brave.. I kept to travel in the daylight.

I went in to explore the first building I found, it was empty, but fully furnished I was able to warm myself by a roaring fire.  I wasn’t tempted to rest on the bed.. but I did sit a spell on a chair in what appeared to be a bedroom with a lot of books.

When I found my way out of the big spooky house, I sat for awhile hoping that I would be given a sign, or someone would come by… no one came.  I did meet a guard at the entrance to the red queen’s palace, but she was no where to be seen.  I dared sit on her throne.

I made my way over hills, and through a huge valley of coloured mushrooms, I could hear activity, but didn’t see anyone.  When I came across the tea party, no one was there, all the desserts were out, and the tea still hot, but not a soul in sight.

The windmill was beckoning with its welcoming lights at the door, before calling it a night, I thought I go explore.  Sigh.. a woman’s work is never done.. I had to mend and sew without any proper light before I could go to bed.

Meanwhile, while I was out exploring, Little Q was at home enjoying a night by the fire, with not a thought in her head to leave her cosy home

Q got a new hairdo 4.2.17_001

No two people use “time” in the same way.  The trick is to find what is “right for you, and make time to do it.  Every day we get to create our own “chapter and verse”, it was a grand week-end.  Now, we have a whole week ahead. Happy start of the week everyone.

Q got a new hairdo 4.2.17_004

I am little Ms Q.  and I luv YOU… from my virtual home, I bid you a good night.

lazy mind

8.20_011

A lazy mind can sit and ponder, wonder and consider her options for hours on end.  there is nothing wrong in daydreaming, or taking time out to unwind, de-stress, or as some of us say, just chill.  However, often it is after spending hours drifting aimlessly through imaginary and often lingering moments of “fantasy”, we emerge and finding that all the “stuff” we had waiting for attention in the “immediate” world, is still there, waiting …..

8.20_013

Sure, we can make a list, and we can plot out just how we will get to this project and that one, what materials we will need, even “see” it in our heads.  But all of this is not getting “it” done.

8.20_009

Maybe a walk will sweep out the cobwebs and give inspiration.  Wow, it is so nice out  here, such a pleasure to be out in the fresh air.  hmmm yes, hear those birds, and look… look at how white and fluffy the clouds are today.

8.20_023

Oh my goodness, look at the time, where did it go, it must be dinner time, and I’ve not even started to get things ready.  where did the time go.  Must have closed my eyes after the walk, it was only going to be for a few minutes.

8.20_020

Hello Mr. Crow, will you help me while I start preparing for supper.  I had a good day, thank you for asking, how was yours? hmmmm oh I see, you were busy with your pals clearing up left over seeds at the neighbouring farms.

8.20_024

Well compared to your day, I guess I didn’t get much done..  but then again, I was “busy” all day.

Can any of you relate….. to my “busy” day, shared with my “lazy mind” ??

Oyashikiri

PL Principle # 14  I will not have a mind to be lazy.  I will not have complaints while working nor be overly concerned and complain about others.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
