Granny Smith’s

Granny Smith’s

For me it's Tomato Soup, in a mug. Not any old Tomato Soup either, has to be Heinz, Cream of Tomato. That is the taste of Autumn to me. I believe everyone has a taste, or smell, that they associate with a season and lots of them are represented in the photo today. This photo [...]

And the Sea Breeze Whispered

I came back from summer vacation to a whole new summer vibe in SL and I'm so here for it. Plus there are no mosquitoes bothering me in SL...so far! Today I am sharing some goodies from Summerfest. You may have spotted some of these beauties in an avatar photo I posted a few days [...]

One Is You Make Me Happy, Two Is You Set Me Free

One Is You Make Me Happy, Two Is You Set Me Free

Is it really almost Thursday? That means it's almost a week since I returned from my sunny rl paradise in Sorrento. It seems like 5 minutes ago but also month ago.  I think I'm about caught up with everything now though and can maybe take a bit of a breather in SL and RL. It's [...]

Excuse My Caffitude

Excuse My Caffitude

I'm a coffee lover...especially that first hit in the morning where you literally feel the caffeine kick course through your veins. That said I do try to limit the number of cups I have per day to 4. While that first cup gives me that needed boost I've never been kept awake by caffeine, even [...]

Objects Have Meaning

One of the areas that is was an absolute must to bring back to Deer River was this cabin and even more important the rocking chair on the porch.  These were both fixtures of the first iteration of Deer River and it was on that chair that I sat with Mr Smith for the first [...]

A Clean Desk is a Sign of a Sick Mind

A Clean Desk is a Sign of a Sick Mind

I used to work with someone when I was younger that said that to me all the time...I am not a tidy desk person at all, in either life! That's had to change over the years as, in real life, we've moved more to a hotdesking approach to office space. Late last year I gave [...]
