A Room Made with Love

I recently decided to create a fresh, new home for Chris and myself. You can’t see it here, but I chose the round compound from Bad Unicorn (its at Uber). This build presents it’s challenges as it has two room with curved walls, but the middle area I was able to divide in half. The photo here is of the living room half…well, part of it. I’m so excited to be able to not only create an amazing living space, but to have the honor actually blogging a room I will keep and use regularly for months to come. This is a room made with love more than a decorator’s eye, but I’m really happy with how it looks, too.

Patio Project

With most of us stuck at home, no one actually said we could not go outside. We’re just supposed to be social distancing, right? One thing we’ve done in real life to not only give us something to do, but to give us a change of scenery is to redo our patio and garden area. Yes, we made a rush to the garden center before it was too late. It was easy to social distance ourselves in there, as most people were racing after toilet paper and other essentials. We had done that early on, so that wasn’t an issue for us. For three days, we have weeded and planted, until our patio area is looking as fresh and lovely as ever. Now, we have a lovely area to sit outside and enjoy an unobstructed view of the neighborhood in some very lovely weather. (BTW, by “we” I meant my mom.)
I decided to follow suit in Second Life, by creating an area Chris and I to enjoy each other’s company tucked away in our little concrete patio…secluded from the rest of the world.♥

Invisible Thread

“I think that when two people are able to weave that kind of invisible thread of understanding and sympathy between each other, that delicate web, they should not risk tearing it. It is too rare, and it lasts too short a time at best….”

Refuse to Fit In

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
― Mandy Hale

Middy’s Room

So, when I was putting this scene together, I immediately knew I needed a unicorn. *sighs* I really don’t like unicorns. Its a long story, but they’re kind of a sort point with me…*giggles*…point…get it? Of course, you do. The instant I put that unicorn in there, I knew this was Middy’s room. I won’t get too much into who Middy is, but I’ll give you a brief description that will help you understand some of the elements of this room. Middy is an amazing woman that loves pink and unicorns, but ironically hangs out with vampires. (Hence, the casket mirror.) I jokingly told her that I built her a bedroom and she’s ready to move in. Sadly, this is created on a platform and is the only room in the house that has furniture in it. I kinda feel like a predator waiting to capture her and keep her hidden away. Though, to be fair, she is a bit of a introvert and might just enjoy that.

Pocketful of Sunshine

I got a pocket,
Got a pocketful of sunshine
I’ve got a love and I know that it’s all mine
Oh, oh, oh
Do what you want,
But you’re never gonna break me,
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me
Oh, oh, oh

I got pocket,
Got a pocketful of sunshine
I’ve got a love and I know that it’s all mine
Oh, oh, oh

Wish that you could,
But you ain’t gonna own me
Do anything you can to control me

….

There’s a place that I go
That nobody knows
Where the rivers flow
And I call it home
And there’s no more lies
And the darkness is light
And nobody cries
There’s only butterflies
~ Natasha Bedingfield – Pocketful of Sunshine

Setting the Table

I have a serious weakness for dining room sets in Second Life. Growing up, my mother always set an immaculate table. She did this daily, for our nightly dinners. She would say that presentation was as important as the taste. For special occasions, she went completely nuts, breaking out the fine china. We actually had two sets of fancy china, real silver silverware, and a complete set of crystal goblets for every type of drink. The way she set a table made it seem like we were one of those rich families, but we weren’t. My father was a soldier and my mother was a nurse. Still today, even though we never have any one over for dinner, she will set the table for special occasions. If we do have company, she’s breaking out the place mats, matching table clothes, and of course the crystal goblets.

A Real Grump

This past week I’ve been in quite a funk. I’ve had some sort of stomach bug and I’m fighting like hell not to catch whatever flu/cold bug is going around. I’ve been more withdrawn than usual, only speaking to a small handful of people, because I know what happens to me when I get like this I can be a real grump. I really hate bringing other people down. I tend to keep most of my crap to myself to avoid hindering anyone else’s experience inworld. No one comes into SL hoping to hear all the ways I’m feeling miserable. Don’t get me wrong, I know that my wonderful friends are loving, caring individuals that will gladly listen to me complain. I just hate doing that to them. There’s nothing they can do to change how I’m feeling physically and I certainly don’t want them to feel helpless either. I love them and I want them to be happy. *shrugs* So, yeah, I’ve been isolating a bit and I think for the most part, my friends are used to me doing this by now. If not, they’re just not paying attention. *laughs* Which…if it’s Tracy, that’s HER usual..*grins*

Cherish one another, please.

I’ve spent the majority of my adult Christmases alone. This year won’t be very different. It’s not a great feeling and its one I wish no one ever had to feel. It can be absolute hell for some and the darkest of hours for others. I’m not suggesting that anyone hover over their friends, but please…if each of us take a moment to reach out and wish each other a good day…offer a shoulder if needed or able…a silly little joke…something personal. Not just a generic, “hey, how are you?” Ask something that requires them to think of an answer, not give you that auto pilot reply, “I’m fine.” If we all do this for one another, we will remind one another that we matter….all of us matter. Be kind and grateful to one another and for one another. There are no guarantees that they will still be part of our lives next year. Cherish one another, please.
