Hot Havana nights

Bee 0077ps

I’m doing a second post today as I have a few decor items that are coming up in the next days.

What I am featuring is this new swimming pool by Bee Designs.  It’s available at the Cosmopolitan Room. It comes with single and couple animations, including some swimming ones.  Everything in the picture except the house and palm trees behind me are included as part of the decor with the pool.

It’s raining crazy right now, but when it’s not it’s hot and humid and perfect for a swim in the pool.

Two-in-one sort of day

Tres Chic 023

I was in the middle of finishing up these pictures last night when suddenly I lost my internet.  I had forgotten that they were laying out cable in the neighborhood and services were going to be cut off in the evening hours until the morning.  It’s why I didn’t get around to posting anything yesterday, as it’s already the next day here.

Hope it’s a great Wednesday!

Last Christmas

Last Xmas 005ps

As I was going through the poses on this chair, which are a few for activities and sleep I settled on this one as it sort of fit my contemplative mood.  Gazing at the beautiful tree I thought of how different my last Christmas is to this year.  I don’t bemoan material things as those have never been that important to me.  No, I grieve the loss of people that were in my life then who no longer are.

For some reason I think this could be my last Christmas in Second Life.  I don’t know what the future brings obviously, it’s just more or less a thought that funneled through my mind right now.  On January 8th, I will have been in Second Life for 5 years, which in my book is a pretty long time.

That day is also very significant.  It was the same date of January 8th two years ago, that I also met someone who came to be a very important part of my life.  I miss that period in my life, where everyday was more carefree and not as heavy.  I miss him too.  My Christmas wish for him is always that he find peace, happiness and joy.

I’m thankful for many things, but today I’m just thankful for even the cool weather that has me shivering from cold.

Memories of you always make me smile

Snapshot_018ps2
Today I’m simply doing a tribute to my father to celebrate his birthday. It’s been 6 years since dad passed and more then ever I miss him terribly.

Dad loved old cars and would from time to time share a long ago memory of some vehicle he drove or owned. The belair was one of those vehicles so when I saw this version recently it was a given that I needed to get it. It’s about the right size as he liked big cars.

His other love was music and dad played the accordion from a young age up until his last days.  I’ve showed this accordion on a previous post remembering my father and it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t bring it back out to use as this was his passion. It’s not the same kind of model as his were always the button and not the piano variety.

That Texas marquee was another must have and no it’s not because all my exes live in Texas…well just one! My Dad who grew up in Texas would have chuckled at that as he was a bit of a jokester himself.

Today is a little hard for me not being close to home to take him flowers personally, but I know he wouldn’t want me to give it a second thought. Easier said then done.

Feliz Cumpleaños Papi!
