Guest Blogger!

issa-baby-showerToday we welcome Oura Scribe as guest author!!! Saturday was the baby shower for Issa. 🙂 Although I would have loved to be there, RL had priority. So I had to send my regrets but I asked Oura to take pictures and think about writing it up for me. Good friend that she is, she came through! So although I missed the party, we can still enjoy the pictures and hear how it went. Take it away, Oura……

ouraI attended / co-hosted a baby shower in world this morning for Isabelle Urqhart. This was my first baby shower and a pleasant deviation from the normal routines of SL.


baby-shower-blocksI will have to say right off the best part of any gathering of women is the conversation. Today was no exception. The lighthearted happy thoughts of any infant, coupled with the gifts, demonstrations of how the gifts work, and laughter of friends made that time special.

issa-and-baby-presentsBeing across the world from someone but still able to sit and chat, wish them well and share a moment is a wonderful experience. There was some issue about time zones since Isabelle is in Australia and I think 18 hours ahead of us. So we were 7am SL time and I believe Issa was somewhere around midnight.

In attendance Isabelle, Peace, Ruby, Oura and Sammy.

Thanks Oura! I’m sorry I missed the party – looks like everyone had a lot of fun!

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
