Baking Pies

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US so it's time to bake those pies. There is only so much room in the oven with the big ol' turkey in there. So today Livy and I went on a pie baking mission at my house while her mom cleaned theirs. First up was making the crust. This is not as fun as I had thought. In fact it took me more than one try to get the crust right. I am new at this crust from scratch thing. I did have quite the adorable helper.


After baking the pies we needed for tomorrow we decided to use the leftover crust dough and filling to make little hand pies. I should have known not to turn my back on a little trouble maker...


That little Thanksgiving turkey stole one of the mini pies and tried to run away from me! Oh well her mom will have to deal with a messy sugar monster tonight and not me. I am such a loving sister!

Fresh Ingredients

Thanksgiving is Thursday here in the US so it's time to get ready for the food! This past weekend I went to get apples and pumpkins for our pies. I decided to take Livy with me for some auntie-niece bonding time. Well her mom may have begged me to take her with me to get some alone time for a few hours. Who am I to say no to a desperate sister? Our first stop was the pumpkin patch.

We found the the right sized pumpkins to whip up a tasty pumpkin pie from scratch. After that we had to make a quick stop at home to change. I hadn't anticipated the muddiness of the pumpkin patch before we left and our clothes were a mess! Our next stop was the orchard to pick some apples for apple pie, and of course some for eating too.

We had great fun at the orchard. Livy liked that I let her climb a ladder, carefully supervised of course. I am not that irresponsible, most days. After we finished picking a big bucket full of apples it was time to head home. Livy told me she has a secret to tell me before we left.… Read the restPumpkin Picking

Updated PDA


No more planners, multiple cell phones and such for this boss. Ho no she now has the latest and greatest in Personal Data Assistants. Sure she may be bigger and more colorful, but trust me she makes work a whole lot easier. It's nice having an employee with all ten digits that requires no salary. She doesn't need to carry around a planner for me, but she does it for aesthetic reasons. Well enough of my talking up my new PDA, there is work to be done after all.

Storytime



My dragon friends love it when I read them stories. I try to make sure the stories all have dragons, but not terrible knight who go around killing dragons. Stupid knights don't know what they are doing! All because one dragon once went a little crazy and terrorized a village now all dragons are bad. Hrumf I say. The Dragon Queen, also known as my mom, watches out for all the in our land. I get to play with all the little whelps. They are too adorable for words! That little one who is trying to read over my shoulder is always following me around. I think it may be because our wings are the same color.

Quiet Corner for Coffee


I love grabbing a cup of coffee and finding a quiet spot to just chill out in and have a moment to myself. Moments alone are very rare and I jump on them any chance I get! I am also a somewhat terrible person because I will listen to things other people are talking about, like where to get the best chicken and waffles near my house. I do this in Second Life as well. Only it's more socially acceptable when it is talked about in a group you are in. For instance these pictures were taken at Whole Wheat, which I had never heard of till it was mentioned as a place for fall pictures.

They have different scenes all set up there, like the coffee house which is where I chose for my pictures. It is really worth checking out as they are always adding to it.


I had to add this picture so you could see the adorableness of my face. It makes me look all sweet and approachable...it lies.

Binge Watching

I know I am not alone in having a show or twelve that I will happily binge watch. While I try to keep my late night binging to a minimum sometimes you just can't stop watching. This is when good battery life can come in handy.


Sometimes you don't want to admit to something you may have binge watched, for instance, the first three Jaws movies.Hey the first is a classic and well the other two just sorta followed, don't judge. We all have binge skeletons in our closets. We stay up till all hours and before we know it the movie,season or series ends.


There are times when the endings are all we hoped for, they are the best. Then there are endings that leave you going WTF! I'm looking at you Sopranos! However you feel at the end of a binge session is just one of those things you won't know about until after you do it. So go forth my friends and binge. Oh and tell me what you are binging on because I am always use more stuff to watch.

The Burdy Sisters – Raven

Finally we come to Raven, the last of the Burdy triplets, and maybe the most...interesting? You see Raven had obsession with death and dead things. She would even sneak out at night to meet with her unkindness, her flock of ravens.

No one was ever certain whether she had trained the raven to come to her or if they just naturally saw her as their queen of some sort. It did disturb the other people living on the island whenever they would see the ravens circling here. They also feared the ravens themselves for it seemed that anyone who witnessed Raven in the evenings would be found dead within a week. No one believed this to be a mere coincidence.


Due to the deaths that surrounded seeing Raven at night many of the island dwellers made sure to be locked up tight in their homes before the dark of night descended. No one wanted to risk being the next one to be at the wrong end of the Raven Curse.

The Burdy Sisters – Hawk

Today we take a look at Hawk Burdy. She is the fiercest of the triplets. She took on the role of protector at an early age and may have taken it a bit far. Over the years Hawk turned into an almost primal huntress. Her attitude toward strangers fueled the rumors about the strange family on the island.

Hawk also seemed to have an inherent interest in hunting. She kept her family well fed on that island. While her sisters dressed in more traditional clothing Hawk was a little, hmmm, less formal? She felt her attire gave her the freedom to move quickly and easily when hunting her prey.

The Burdy Sisters – Dove

Some time ago on a small island a mother gave birth to three baby girls. As they grew she notices something peculiar about her girls, they were growing feathers! It would appear it was a rare genetic disorder, but their mother swore it was a curse put upon her and she never had anymore children. Each of her daughters grew and aged as any normal girl would, only they had feathers. Today I will introduce you to young woman whom they call Dove.



Dove was given the name due to her dove colored feathers. She was very much like her namesake in a way. You see Dove was very peaceful and loving. She loved to surround herself with the color white and she collected things that she felt were beautiful, even if no one else saw the beauty in the object.



Dove was the sweetest and most innocent of the Burdy sisters. If it weren't for the feathers scaring off people she may have found love...

Autumn


This year I am getting used to a whole different type of autumn than I have known. Warm days and green leaves are not what I grew up with, but I am sort of liking it. However the hurricane bit I could do without. I shouldn't complain, because all the sunshine and green makes me a happy camper. Well not a camper because I am not a sleep under the stars kind of person. I do however like to take walks. On of my favorite places to walk around is Old Saint Augustine. If you ever get the chance you should totally visit. I should stop there before I turn this into a tour guide post.

You Look Fine

"You look fine", that is what she told me when she woke me up from my nap to take a picture in the yard. I knew I shouldn't have trusted her, you never trust an older sibling. I should have learned that over the years, but did I? Obviously not or else I wouldn't look like I got into a fight with a squirrel.

Oh well even looking like still have sleepiness in my eyes we are still a cute pair, though maybe next time I will decide when we take a picture!

Omens in Flight

Have you ever Googled the name of something you bought because it was a word you have never seen before? I have, in fact I do it very often for certain brands, mostly from We ♥ Roleplay. Finding out what the word means usually influences what I decide to do for a photo. This is one of those times, of course as usual I took some creative liberties.

Standing there watching the birds in their flight one can often wonder what they are doing. Are they playing a game, running from something or may they are just a sign from above that needs interpretation? If it is the last then that is where I come in. You see I am an modern day Auspex, a bird watcher of sorts. You see I have a gift to divine omens from the flight of these birds you see here. Not all omens are bad, however these are ravens so...yeah.

One day I hope to be able to take flight just like the birds I spend my time watching, until then I will be content interpreting the messages they bring to me.

Dancing with a memory


I may be missing someone very much, or maybe I am trying to be "arty". It is quite possible that it is a combination of the two. I wish I could think of something wise or moving to say, but I got nothing today. Hopefully I will be more brilliant in the future, for now you can have the credits.

Planning an Invasion


I have a geeky admission to make. I have been playing a table top RPG for the last couple months. It's actually pretty fun and I was surprised by my enjoyment of it. What does that have to do with this post you may be asking yourself. Well you see there are some bad AI's in it and I figured this is what one may look like if it were placed into a humanoid body. Yes it is just that nerdy.
You have to admit there could be worse looking overlords bent on destroying the human population. Now back to plans on destroying mankind!

My Week With Livy – Day Five – Kite Flying


I am a big fan of the Disney movie Mary Poppins, so I am always wanting to fly a kite. I decided that kite flying should be one of the activities that I do with Livy. It probably would have been more effective in the spring or even at the beach, but she didn't care. Just getting her kite that little bit off the ground was enough to make her day. The best part for me was that she exhausted herself running back and forth so she slept like a champ.

My Week With Livy – Day Four – Matching Outfits (sorta)


I will admit this was my silliest day with Livy. Whenever we went out people assumed I was her mom. I mean I get it it's not that far of a stretch, so I had fun with that. I decided to match her dress, at least a little bit. I decided to take a couple of selfies to send to her parents to let them know we were having fun. Yes we were making silly faces in a lot of them, but I did insist on at least one "nice" one.
Don't we look adorable?

My Week With Livy – Day Three – Swimming


Yesterday I showed off the pictures of Livy and I catching fireflies, today we are swimming! Livy wanted to show me how she can swim without floaties now. I recently had a pool installed at my house and we used that. we actually hit the pool most days, but this was the day I actually had a friend around to snap a picture. Looks like they got my best angle. Noe looking at the picture, Livy and I were color coordinated with the pool and it's tiles quite nicely, go figure.

My Week With Livy – Day Two – Catching Fireflies


On the second day of...no wait it's not Christmas time yet. Let's try that again shall we? On day two of Livy's visit I thought it would be fun to catch some fireflies. I hadn't done it since I was a kid myself so it took a fair amount of practice for us to finally catch some light up creepy crawlies. Livy was quite proud of her catch. Of course being the nice people we are, we released the fireflies shortly after we caught them. I though I was trying to teach her a deep lesson, she just thought it was so she could catch more. Oh well at least I can say I tried.

My Week With Livy – Day One – Playing Princess


As you can see I had a not so little visitor this past week. I updated her room in my house just before he visit. What can I say she visits often and I want to keep my "Awesome Auntie" status. She may have grown out of some things, but playing princess isn't one of them. Well I mean sort of. You see she has realized that the Fairy Godmother really has all the power and not the princess. So she decided I needed to be the princess this time. I guess that is better than me being a wicked witch!

Harvester of Dreams


There is a very special job for the resident of Dreamland. I mean sure all the jobs there are important, but one is the most sought after job. That is the job of dream harvester. Didn't you ever wonder where your sweet dreams came from? I mean sure science and psychologists have their theories, but we know the truth. Those sweet dreams are harvested in Dreamland and magically create those dreams while you sleep. Sometimes though unripe dreams sneak in there and that us when the strange dreams happen.

This big round dream orb is ready to be picked. You can see by the glow and the roundness of it. It looks like a big dream too! The smaller round ones are getting close to ready, but they could use a little more growth. The square ones you see are the newest dreams growing, they all start out as little squares and as they grow and ripen the round out. Those should be ready in a couple weeks if all goes well.
