Major Construction - Installed a Pool This Weekend

A great "60L Weekend" find was this pool at MiChiGaN's ShAcK. Yes, there are some naughty animations, (TY Michigan. ;) ) but a there's G menu as well, for couples or solo. There is a very nice selection of poses/animations for the pool side or in water. You can also use your own animations for swimming and fluttering around. There's a huge pool area as well as a spa with jets. I had to re-landscape and terriform the side of my house, but so far I am pleased with the progress.

LOTD - New Stuff From LouLou&Co at Rhapsody and Baby Monkey

I went to the event fashion mall, Rhapsody and found this cute sun dress, from LouLou&Co. Rhapsody is set up in small areas themed to a music genre.  It is a well set up event and lag is low.

 What I like best about the dress, Veruschka, is that it has a HUD with 15 fabric choices and 15 belt choices. I only had to adjust my avatar a little to have no gaps on the bodice.


Here are a few of my favorite textures in the selection:



The other new find are these cute wood heeled sandals, Lorna, from Baby Monkey. They also have a color change HUD with tons of choices. When they came out last week, they were 1/2 price to members. I'm not sure if they are still discounted.


They are for only Slink Feet, which I finally bought. I am rather ambivalent about one maker of avatar attachments being the only one that designers are making an item to fit. I finally acquiesced after Jessica Lyon's talk at the SL11B event, in reference to Linden Lab working on a different viewer. We need to continue to buy, make things and participate in SL as a community. It will be years before the new viewer, and SL may go on long after that. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy my new mesh items. I'm sure a year from now, these will be in a box in my inventory. But they will be here on my blog hopefully forever:)

My Mountain Meadow in Summer

In keeping with what I said last week about blogging more and saving more SL images, I am trying for a couple posts today of pics I have taken the past week. First, I have put in more flowers and grasses in the mountain meadow on my sim. I am quite happy with the result. Everything was in my inventory with the exception of a small grouping of flowers and buzzing bees and insects from Two Moon Gardens. I was so impressed with the display from them at SL11B, that I had to visit.  (repeated here 4x)

(Summer Weeds from Two Moon Gardens)
The other grasses, trees and flowers are from many, many creators. When mesh came out awhile ago I replaced most all of my prim plants to get more stuff into my Homestead Sim.

Fun at SL11B

These pics are from Ginger Lorekete's build, Immersive Art. I have loved her stuff for several years now.





and then there are the freebies.........


The hat of all hats, and this crate of fruit and a blender just to show a couple............ who has the rum?

I finally got to listen to Jessica Lyon's talk from yesterday. All this hoopla about Linden Labs working on another platform is no need to panic. She is so right; keep on enjoying SL, build, buy and connect. I want to add... blog, even if as I do for my own "scrapbook". It's the only way we will be able to remember our inventory as we cast away the stuff we no longer use. I cleaned out 30K of my inventory today of clothing and pictures/textures I will never use. I am now just short of 75K.

SL11B and This Point in Time

I know it's been more than 6 months since I have posted. I needed that break. Here are a couple selfies I am submitting to the SL11B pages.

Yes, I'm dancing and enjoying myself :) participating and enjoying connecting with old friends.




I got a ladybug face painting amongst hundreds of freebies and amazing eye candy of builds to have forever in my head.




I've not been disenchanted with SL, just wary of relationships and drama I don't have in RL and don't care to deal with. Yesterday we heard the news that LL is building another platform. I love my sim, and everything I have built, but I know all in SL and RL is temporal, ephemeral . As Buddha has taught, attachment is a trap, even to these pixels of which I have imagined and given birth to..., and refined..., and re-imagined ..., and ...............   breathe....

Just My LOTD



I'm still enjoying fall in SL. It's too early to put out the snow, but I have been shopping:) It's still 80 degrees for me in RL. This is my LOTD, sweater dress from SLC, sweet and feminine and goes so well with the Baby Monkey leggings and boots.
