A Season for Happiness and Giving Thanks

Tomorrow is (USA) Thanksgiving – time for turkey and lots of side dishes! I know I will be getting up early to cook all of the food ^^ One of the traditions for Thanksgiving is that you acknowledge things that you are thankful or show gratitude towards.

Many of us would say things like you are thankful for your health, that you are able to get up in the morning, family, friends, or financial stability. But suppose if none of the following applies…at least not fully? Maybe you are not in the best of health, or you are not on the greatest terms with your family. And, I know few people who currently can say that they are secure with their finances. If this applies to you, then it’s time to break things down. What makes you happy? If we are happy about something, then we can be thankful that something can bring us a moment of happiness.

Ironwood Hills – Winter Edition

Hey guys! Things have been busy as of late. My grandmother, who had been bedridden with severe bedsores for the past month, passed away on Monday. She was one day short of turning 91 years old.  So I am a bit distracted at the moment. I have a ton of cool blog posts coming up – already have pictures taken for them. I think I will redo some of them, because after sitting on them for several days, I find that I’m not 100% happy with the way they turned out.

I DID get to go exploring a bit at Ironwood Hills. According to the notecard that was given to all visitors:

“The once rainy city of Ironwood Hills has been transformed into a desolate winter landscape . A barren rural area with glimpses of city life, the town stands abandoned and frozen in time. A horrific snow globe capturing just one memory in the long life of Ironwood Hills.

Featuring both urban and rural areas, a graveyard, snowy hedge maze and asylum, sideshow circus plus many other areas to explore. All touched by the hazy shade of winter with falling snow. The sim is full rez enabled with no auto return to allow photographers to take their time with getting the perfect scene.”

I used the region windlight, so it is pretty dark (and cold!). I saw a cemetery, some old shops, and several people I assume that were taking their own pictures ^^

And yes, I’m one of those people who walk around with sunglasses at night. It protects my eyes from all of that snow and wind :P

The Boho Couture Fair ends soon

The fourth Boho Culture Fair ends on November 2nd. So if you haven’t been yet, now would be a good time to check it out. I think many are focused on celebrating Halloween ^^

Today I am wearing Ghee‘s clothing, which can be found at the Boho Couture Fair.

I normally don’t wear green, but since the Foxy Lady Madylin skirt had green flowers, I decided to wear green tights as well. Ghee has a variety of colors, all at their main store. Make sure you demo so you can decide the best way to wear Ghee according to your tastes.

The strangest thing I’ve ever seen at a funhouse

I was looking for a carnival of sorts to take a couple of photos of the outfit from Blacklace Lounge, Cherry Pop. I think this looks very “fun” – gumballs, bright colors, etc. It even has a cute purse that I can see myself wearing with different outfits. I had found a section to take pictures at Sleepy Hollow when I saw this in front of me:


I guess someone didn’t like clowns…or just maybe not this one. I don’t get why people don’t like clowns; I’m not scared nor ecstatically happy to see them.

*whispers* You can slip 25 cents in my purse…but if you try to take any quarters out, you will end up like the clown :P
