Life is a Journey

Life is a Journey

The sign on the side of one of these says "Life is a Journey" and the older you get the more that phrase rings true. In my opinion anyways. I had been on one journey and then my path changed and now I am on another journey. It's just the start and I've barely set [...]

Feast For Your Eyes

Feast For Your Eyes

I love dining in Second Life. I mean, not only is it calorie free but the food often looks much better than anything I serve up at home in real life! For years the dining table and kitchen have been a mainstay of any house I've owned or decorated and they've all been interactive with [...]

Ten to Two

I'm sure I'm not the only one that has nicknames for neighbours, or people you need to refer to, to other people but you don't know their names? Many years ago I used to work for a publishing house and one of the ladies we would see every day walking through the office was nicknamed [...]

Photoshop introduced the sky replacement tool a little while back but recently I've been using another plug in for Photoshop called Luminar AI...I have to say I love it! It's far more intuitive than Photoshop and has a lot more options. Overall I think the end effect is brilliant. But....and it's a big butt....I feel [...]

In Repose

Happy Sunday! I was thinking today about what Sunday's used to be like when I was a child. Shops didn't open at all on Sunday's then and the pubs opened for a couple of hours at lunchtime and then closed again until later in the evening. It was housework day in our home too. We [...]

End of Summer’s Breath

Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night, And swaying branches bear The Elven-stars as jewels white Amid their branching hair. Though here at journey's end I lie In darkness buried deep, Beyond all [...]

I'm so ready for the weekend! Earlier this week I booked a summer holiday....for next year. I hope by then everything will be back to normal. I'm heading to my favourite holiday destination...Italy! it's a whole year away but gives me something to look forward to. Of course one of my absolute favourite things about [...]

Poolside Gourmet

Poolside Gourmet

The start of the month is always busier for me than the latter part of the month and one of the reasons I look forward to the last half of the month is that it gives me time to blog. It's how I unwind from the busy times and honestly the reason I keep on [...]

Work Time Corner

Work Time Corner

I'd long had an idea of making an outdoor work area at home but have never gotten around to doing it. We all have our habits and routines and I find that when I am working in SL, and it requires periods of time in lots of programmes and flipping back to SL occasionally to [...]
