Spring Trees

At the risk of annoying my dear friend Honour, I’m posting more plants in bloom pictures today. Honour and I are not that different in some respects – we both love and need growing flora. Of course in other respects (shoes and hair, for example) we do differ greatly. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today was already a “difficult” day and it’s not even 10:30 am. I woke up tired. I don’t know why – I think I slept well. I don’t remember any bad dreams or tossing and turning. Yet I’m tired. It happens.

Then I made the mistake of listening to the news on the radio as I got dressed. Made the bigger mistake of looking at headlines as I fed the cats. Saw that I had no response to two emails that I had hoped might get answered. Looked at my work schedule and saw meetings booked solid from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Ouch.

But today is a beautiful gorgeous spring day outside! The sky is a lovely shade of blue, trees around the house are blooming, no power landscaping services disturbing the serenity. My husband made a full pot of coffee. *smile* I did what any sensible person would do. I took my camera and went outside. I want to upgrade my phone SO MUCH. But in these worrisome times, that is a foolish expenditure of $$$, well, in my opinion anyway. Who knows what’s going to be happening in the future and a new iPhone, no matter how fantastic the camera, is not essential. (yet)

Looking at all these gorgeous trees (none of which fall within my property lines) cheered me up. How can you not smile when looking at such beauty? Then I discovered that my 10:00 am meeting was cancelled. Who knew that just looking at trees could be so rewarding? *grin* The little grape hyacinths are in my garden, as is the andromeda bush. I’ve been waiting for my seed order to arrive – it’s been weeks. I understand seeds are not a priority shipment, but it would be nice to have something to do in the garden. It’s still too early to put in plants. Ahhhh. All this talk of the garden and trees – I feel better already.

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!

  1. I like the blending of the red and pink foliage blooms in that last photo. Unfortunately, something out there is making my eyes tear again.

  2. Then isn’t it good to have pictures of it all so you don’t have to venture outside? ๐Ÿ™‚
