Trimming the tree

This year I had some help decorating my tree, since Livy was on break from preschool. She loves decorating the tree, but she doesn't exactly reach all the way to the top. That is where I come in. My job is to decorate the top parts of the tree, but even I need a step stool for it. Livy was getting a little distracted by Buster the puppy who was running around under the tree. The silly boy even tried to climb it. Sometimes I think he is part cat! Eventually Livy and I got the putting the star on top of the tree. I think next year I need a shorter tree or a taller step stool.

Choosing the perfect tree



Before any tree choosing can happen one needs fortification. In this case it is a warm cup of hot chocolate. However if you are going in the morning may I suggest a festive peppermint mocha. All the chocolate goodness of cocoa with the caffeine boost of coffee. Once you have that then it's time to hit the tree farm, or tree lot depending on where you live. When I lived up north we went to a tree farm, tramped through the snow, mud or whatever was covering the ground at the time. That isn't an option where I live now so if I want a real tree it's parking lot tree lot. Now it's the hard part. Finding that perfect tree. You don't want one too tall for the room you are putting it in, not do you want it too scraggly that is has giant gaps in it. For me the perfect tree needs to be tall, not too fat around and it must smell like a Christmas tree.


This one looks perfect to me. Look at those strong branches and lovely green needles. It will look fantastic in my living room all dressed up in Christmas finery.… Read the restHot Chocolate

My Dancer Dreams

I know Thanksgiving here in the US was almost a month ago, but hey this is a bust time of year! Anyway every year I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, it's a tradition around here. As always I watch The Radio City Rockettes do their thing, and my feeling are mixed. It's a mixture of awe and jealousy. You see I am about as coordinated as a newborn calf. Saying I have two left feet would be putting it nicely. I always have delusions of grace when I watch them on television. Here is what I see in my head....



As you can see in my dreams I am elegant, graceful and ever so festive. I guess one out of three isn't bad...right?



When reality sets back in it can be a little saddening. Luckily I get to make my house look all pretty and festive to recover from the harsh reality.

A special pet

We have all heard that after a while an pet parent and they non-human child will start to look alike. Well a certain someone has a pet of mythical proportions and let me tell you she and Nyssa are looking more and more alike each day.



Luckily she doesn't have talons or wings like Nyssa, but that just may be coming sooner rather than later. Just look at the way she has tattooed her face. She is one devoted pet parent!


At least with a pet phoenix she never really has to worry about it dying. I am fairly certain that beautiful creature will outlive us both.

Tattoos and Me


Some things you may not know about the non-digital me is that my hair is currently red and I have two Celtic inspired tattoos on my body. Nope I don't have pictures, it's hard to take a picture of your own shoulder. I don't have nearly as many tattoos as seen here, not does my hair ever look this fantastic.


The swirl  bit you see in the middle of my chest there is what I have tattooed on my wrist, though it's a little changed to be more meaningful to me, which isn't that what a tattoo should be, meaningful to the wearer I mean? If you click on the picture you can see better, but there is a lot of Celtic knotwork going on here too. That is what I have on my shoulder, though my knots are in the shape of a star. What can I say I have a thing for stars. Please forgive my pictures if they are a little on the blurrier side of things. I am still getting used to the new computer and it's graphics. Hope those celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow enjoy and those that don't have a happy Thursday!

Shopping Trip


I am one of those people who likes to get there holiday shopping over with before the real craziness of the season hits. My theory is if I get it done sooner then I can relax more en enjoy the parties and everything the holidays bring. I will however still shop for those last few things that I forgot or that I can't get online. Today I did splurge and get myself a few lovlies. However I will be wrapping them and putting them under the tree. Yes, I give myself presents, I deserve them gosh darn it! Now I am switching into Thanksgiving prep mode. My duties for dinner include making mashed potatoes but not the turkey thank goodness. Before I ramble on must longer I will go back to enjoying my hot cocoa and relaxing.

Good news and a little delay

On 9th November 2017 · By Phire Zuhra · With Leave a comment
In Fashion, Second Life, Style Genesis · Tags
There will be some delays with new posts for a bit. Nothing is wrong fret not. The good news is I got a new computer that can handle almost anything I throw at it. The bad news is not everything copied over, like it should have. So I am currently playing a game of get to know you and fix my settings to my liking. Once I get all that done I should be up an running. Then Holidays are also getting here faster than I thought they would. Either way I hope to be back posting in a regular way ASAP! 

Here is a random picture from a post I decided to scrap. Enjoy

Followed by a Nightmare


              Have you ever had a bad dream that woke you up, a terrifying nightmare that you just can't shake? I know I have, it feels almost like there is a dark cloud over your head. Maybe it isn't a dark cloud, maybe, just maybe, that nightmare is a thing. A haunting creature that stalks you throughout your day.



             Even the sweetest and kindest of us are not immune to nightmares. How does one beat a phantom? Does it take happiness to defeat this foe? Or could it just be that after time the Nightmare simply fades into obscurity? Whatever you do, fight hard and don't let the Nightmares win!

A little boost



Some days I have trouble finding the motivation go get things done. Those are the days I turn to coffee, the magic potion. Coffee get my synapses firing...most days. However some days I need a little extra boost and that is where sugar comes in. What goes better with coffee than a donut?



Luckily those donut days are few and far between or else I wouldn't be able to button my pants. Today has been a two cup kind of day, so far. The day is no where near it's end and I still have much more to get done. Why did I agree to have company over this weekend?

The Many Loves of Black Widow



                   Every year about this time the Black Widow make her way to the graveyard. It's her own private graveyard where she visits old friends. And by friend I mean her old lovers. You see she is a Black Widow, not just because all her husbands die oh no, that would be too simple. You see she is a demon, the kind who gets foolish mortals to marry her, and then they die. They die without anyone ever being the wiser. It's like they just vanish from all memory. All memory except for hers. So every year she comes to see her forgotten loves.


                   Some she mourns more than others. He may not have been her first, but he will always be her favorite. If she could turn back time, maybe change her ways he could come back to her. Alas it seems to be only a dream for her for she is who she is. Next year she will be back and there will be more forgotten for her to visit.

Autumn Leaves


                   Well I met that handsome flower market man in the park and it turns out he is actually a gentleman. He explained how he had some liquid courage to help him get up the nerve to call me, but it was a little more than he imagined. We had a good laugh about it. I can't say that I haven't done the same thing in the past. We spent all afternoon just chatting away. We never even went to go get that coffee! We agreed to meet at a coffee house next time to guarantee my caffeine fix.

In da club


             A few days after giving the flower merchant my number he called. As my luck would have it he called me right when I was waiting for the bathroom. The girls and I were out at a club and I was the first to break the seal. If you are unfamiliar with the phrase I will spare you the explanation, no one needs the imagery in their minds. So we chatted for a bit when things got shocking!


             He had seemed so umm, vanilla, when I met him at the market. Little did I know that the man had a playful dirty side. I wasn't going to ditch the girls at the club because that isn't how I roll. So we made plans to meet in the park and go for coffee the next day. I am a coffee fiend so it was my idea for the coffee. Here is hoping it goes well.

Call me


You never know when you may meet someone new. For instance you could be picking up flowers on the way to visit you mum and meet a lovely flower vendor. You may even put your number into his phone. This could leave him looking dumbfounded. It's okay, it happens. I wonder if he will call, I would call me, wouldn't you? I am freakin' adorable in my autumny outfit. I guess only time will tell if he calls.

The Spider


                            “Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,                       'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;                       The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,                        And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.”                                The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt
That start to the poem is what inspired me for this post. It somehow seemed fitting. Maybe it was because I used items from The Twisted Hunt, or maybe it is from playing too much Overwatch. Either way it works.

Alone, but not lonely



       Some days you just need that alone time to recharge yourself. During that time being alone isn't being lonely, it's blissful. Maybe I am just saying that now that I finally have my alone time again. Last week was Hurricane Irma madness, everyone was home all week! I missed those quiet hours when it was just me doing what I needed to get done. Now everyone is back on schedule and I couldn't be happier, maybe not them, but it's all about me day. If you couldn't guess from the photo I have been to The Arcade. There will surely be more posts to follow featuring items, and I may even get them done before The Arcade closes, one can dream right?

Two for the Road


Getting stranded in the middle of now where is not my idea of a fun road trip. Sure we may be at a truck stop, but it's still a lonely road that isn't traveled much. Hopefully someone will come along and offer us a ride or else this may become our new home. At least we won't get overheated in the hot hot sun, we aren't exactly bundled up here. We were on our way out to LA to see if we could land a role in a movie or something. Hey we'd even be happy just being extras. Screen time is screen time after all, and beggars can't be choosers! Wish us luck on finding a rise the rest of the way!

Falling for You


I'm falling for you all over again. It's a good thing I am because you keep me grounded instead of floating off into the air. I will give up my wings for you and find a new heaven with you.


I have no idea what just cam over me. Am I a romantic at heart? Nah I just get ideas in my head and see if I can execute them well enough to make me happy. And I am happy because I know a secret about this post, but I am not gonna tell! It won't be a secret if I did, Duh! I do need to buckle down and organize my inventory so I can get back to a regular posting schedule. What can I say everything needs to be in it's own proper place to make me feel productive. I am rambling again so I am going to go sort while you ponder my post.

Sunny Days and Damaged Shoulder

Why yes I am finally back after a three month or so absence. Back in May I messed up my shoulder...bad. Not being able to use one whole arm for more than two months sucks! But now I am back and I got to enjoy a little of the sun while I was healing. Hitting the waves was much more fun than physical therapy.


Before getting into the water you need to test it. It was cold, but not freeze your bits cold. From here the waves look fairly tame, but looks can be deceiving. Some of those waves can knock you off your ass. Or they can toss you around and you get a sand rash. Next time I try boogie boarding I am wearing a rash guard! The nice thing about bigger waves is that they bring the surfers to the beach. I am not going to lie, I was sneaking a little peek here and there at then. I was studying their techniques, as realizing I am going to need be a little more graceful before I can attempt surfing.


That won't stop me from observing the surfers in action anytime soon.

Want to Play a Game?

You don't know me and that is probably a good thing. You see I am a bounty hunter, and not the kind that works for the human courts. I am a soul bounty hunter. What's that you may be asking. Well here is the deal, whenever someone says "I would sell my soul for whatever nonsense they are desiring", one of the many damned lawyers pops up here and strikes a deal. You may think that we wait till that person eats it to collect their souls, but we can be an impatient lot downstairs. So when it the time comes to pony up and you try to sneak away they call me. I got out and I get the job done. You know when you meet someone and think they have "soulless eyes", yeah that is our handy work. Anyway I try to find the fun in the job, so sometimes I offer a game. If they can beat me in a game of poker they get to keep their souls. SPOILER ALERT! They never win.



Take this moron for instance. He agreed to play poker...with a demon. Did he honestly think he had a chance to win? I sometimes literally have an ace up my sleeve.… Read the restLets play

The Oracle’s Walk



Everyday the oracle who lives in the forest takes her walk. No matter the weather she is out there walking. She uses her senses to guide her on her daily stroll through the area. She knows that the quacking of ducks and the trickle of water means she is at the pond near her home. The ducks are always having a lively conversation, what about the oracle isn't clear on, but the do seem into it.



Once the scent of tulips hits her nose the oracle knows she is home. For her home is the only place in all the forest where the tulips will bloom. She loves the scent they give off and can only imagine their beauty. Before she ventures further and enters her home she hears an unfamiliar sound.



Turns out what she heard was me practicing my violin after yesterdays failed concert...oops.
