Waiting for a Prince

The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper. ~Bertrand Russell It seems my entire life has been spent waiting. Waiting for the day I would become a teenager, waiting to leave home to go to college, waiting for college to be over so I could live as an adult. Waiting, I’m always waiting for the next big moment. Does life even have big moments? Well, I reckon it does, a wedding day, child birth, winning the lottery. But what about us average people? Why do we spend so much time waiting to become something else? Do you know what I mean? My life will be “complete” when I lose weight, find a man, or any other of the many goals that keep us from realizing our full potential right now. It seems I’ve waited my entire life, and through it all, I was here all along. By waiting, I’ve let my life pass by, day after day. Looking back I see as I waited for my life to begin, I missed out on a lot of the living in that before mentioned childhood, teenage-dom, adulthood.… Read the restWaiting On A Prince

It’s 100 degrees Fahrenheit Already Can Someone Turn on the A/C?

What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance. ~Jane Austen Credits: Hat: Baiastice, Estrella . Hair: Tableau Vivant, Estrella *Collabor88* . Outfit including bag: Gizza, Give Me Summer *New* . Boat/Pose: What Next? I am a little off kilter these days, and just a touch behind. I hate days like this, the work–life balance long since out the window. My car’s been a bit of a diva this year, turning on the check engine light, but when I go to have it checked it decides to switch the warning off again. I’ve fixed things quite a bit more this year which is costly as it’s a Volvo. I have a newer Jeep, but I love my Volvo because my dad gave it to me 15 years ago and as so many of you know, he died a couple of years ago. It would break my heart to get rid of something my father gave to me because he worried about my safety. Sitting here griping and glowering it occurred to me I may not be acting right and perhaps a great deal of what’s wrong lately is I need to fix my karma because to experience good and valuable things in this world I must first cultivate good and valuable things within myself and all this moody self-centeredness isn’t overly conducive to a life enjoyed.… Read the rest19117736656_090e2059ae_o

With or Without

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. ~ Oscar Wilde More in a music mood than a word mood. Sometimes even the most wordy people have to stop a spell and just watch, otherwise we’ve nothing of import to recall about the world about us. I shore hope you have words to fill the vacancy’s in your world. Have a great week! Outfit

I Wandered Lonely

“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.” ~ Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper Green wind from the green-gold branches, what is the song you bring?
What are all songs for me, now, who no more care to sing?
Deep in the heart of Summer, sweet is life to me still,
But my heart is a lonely hunter that hunts on a lonely hill. ~The Lonely Hunter, Fiona MacLeod, a.k.a. William Sharp Outfit

Just a Girl

Hate crimes are the scariest thing in the world because these people really believe what they’re doing is right. ~Cher It’s strange how some days you really want to write your thoughts but as you settle in to type the words floating haphazardly on the top of the water, they rotate down the drain as if someone unstopped the sink. I am going to keep it simple rather than run away with needless words. In a world where people feel no remorse at the act of gunning down 9 human beings as they worshipped in a church, heck, or any other of the myriad of crimes against others perpetuated daily, a murder every 35 minutes according to the FBI, more specific, a violent crime is committed every 25 seconds. Instead of living like that, why can’t we realize, sometimes less is more. The sad truth is we are all just normal human beings trying to live in a world gone awry.  Why don’t we stop arguing, get to know one another, and learn the sameness within each of us carries just as much weight as our differences.  … Read the restThursday.jpeg

On Old Age

To me – old age is always ten years older than I am. ~Bernard Baruch Been thinking about growing old all day. Exactly when I decided gramma panties were better than sexy one’s I can’t even recall. Yeah, I know, random. I’m just scared I’ve become one of those people I swore I would never become, you know, old. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all bad. I like settin’ a spell on the porch, drinking a mint julep and talking about the good old days as much next as the next old coot. *sigh* But I shore wish those kids would git off my lawn! Outfit:

The Beauty of Imperfection

There is a kind of beauty in imperfection. ~ Conrad Hall I’ve wanted to say something about this for a few weeks now, but I’ve stopped myself. Lately I’ve been trying to be more fashion blog than “everyone’s entitled to my opinion” because I am oft confused at what my followers are here for. But, I find, it’s not in me to bury my head back in the sand because frankly there is a lot of summer left to be exposed to Target’s new commercial on TV and as a “fairy Godmother” to my little princess pirate it pisses me off no end. Do you know the ones? The commercials that picture unrealistically thin teenage females in bikini’s, and creates self-loathing and esteem lowering “I hate my body” moments? This crap tends to haunt every female above the age of eight. I can’t be the only one. But even if I am a party of one, I won’t stand by and watch the bullying any longer. Dear Target, the female body need not be rail thin to wear a swimsuit, float in a pool, or walk along the beach.… Read the restimage_adapt_990_high_barbie%20sports%20illustrated_1392489686773


You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say. ~Martin Luther I was reading my friend Tessa Grace’s blog, Steals, Deals, and SL Sim Appeal this morning and it reminded me of a post I wrote a few years ago. Just thought I’d repost in support of my friend. If you get a chance, check out her blog here. What comes around goes around. We so often say someone is going to “get what they deserve” when they act badly. But the truth is it works with kindness too. Did you know research shows when you are kind to others, even if it’s just to acknowledge them with a “hallo,” it’s been shown to not only increase their happiness, but yours as well. More importantly though, kindness is contagious, so the person you were kind to is more likely to “pay it forward” to the next guy and so on and so forth. You plant a seed of kindness, the roots take hold, the limbs spread out further and further, along the way new trees of kindness are formed.… Read the restReap

Following a Different Drummer

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” ~ Shannon L. Alder Not much going today, I had to leave work early today because the A/C man is replacing a part on the air conditioning and I am going away again for the weekend. A friend is celebrating a birthday and a whole bunch of us are taking up space in a hotel on the beach so no one drives anywhere. Heck, I’m even leaving the spanx at home for a change, taking nothing but the bikini a couple of pairs of shorts and tee’s, my PJ’s, toothbrush and knickers. I like light travel. Though I doubt I’ll be looking overly fashion-y. hmmm Maybe I should make sure no one brings a camera. Should be fun, but I worry, I can’t hang with the big dogs anymore, having recently curbed the alcohol in my life. Salt, sea, toes in the sand, maybe a margarita or two, it should be fun. I hope you all enjoy your weekend as well! Outfit One:

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” ~William Shedd We live in such a stellar time in history. Everyone is connected, knowledge is instant, and information is power. It’s so easy to stay attached to the outside world, moreso than ever before. It’s no longer surprising to see five year olds playing with cell phones. Say what? But I hope with this technology, we still take time to unplug the phones, pads, computers, and all other gadgets to take the time to just be still. Just sit a minute, close your eyes and listen to your soul, to your mind and to your heart. It’s in these still, quiet places that we create, and the ability to create is something that sets us apart from other creatures on this Earth. And this ability is hidden within each and every one of us, so find your abilities in this moment of quietness and give yourself the gift to create, to make your life’s journey more memorable. We each have a history, an inheritance that we will pass on to future generations, so let’s not get so spent by technology we forget to create lasting memories for others.… Read the restSteady1


“The very essence of romance is uncertainty.” ~ Oscar Wilde I did a ton of blogging for the Event @1st this past few days, there were so many groovy things to pick from. In general I blog events sparingly, first to save my Lindens for a rainy day but also because I am always late to the venue. I am inworld so little these days, I don’t have a lot of time to spend trying to gain entrance into events. As such, most everything is blogged by the time I step in the doorway. This one was loads of fun, but by the 5th or 6th photo I was reminded I am retired and no longer putting this much “time” to specifics. I want to personally thank the venue Rua A La Page for giving me this opportunity to participate this round and I wish you all so much success in the future!

“Atticus said to Jem one day, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” ~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird     My Wyoming sister is in town so I’ve done an awful lot of “catching up,” but I sure hope you had an exciting weekend!

“I am Nobody, nobody is perfect, therefore I am perfect.”  ~ Dandi Daley Mackall, Love Rules     I am going to run off at the keyboard a little today, not too much mind you, I am getting out of here and making another three day weekend of this. I’ve found I kind of like those. I am too much of a workaholic to leave for weeks on end, but three days are just enough time not to feel claustrophobic and ready to spork someone. But right now I want to comment, I think a lot of bloggers know I read a lot of blogs. And when I am not reading, I am looking at all of your incredible pictures. You are all amazing! I don’t know if you ever hear this, I know I certainly don’t very often, at least not from some of the people I want to have this affirmation from. But I want you to know, I really enjoy you! I love how you style, I love how you introduce me to new designers, I love your pictures, your song choices (those who have them) and your words! Your words! How I love those the most.… Read the rest1

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one. ~Mother Teresa The quote? I don’t know, was just thinking, in this day of fast food, foodies, gourmet’s, deli’s, bistros, and a myriad of others eating establishment found on every single corner of our life, there sure are a lot people out there getting nothing to eat. The fact is, they might even be someone you know, or at the least pass by every day. Imagine how much one of these people would enjoy the choice of a meal. Just thought I’d throw that out there.
