Caribbean Dreaming

All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is gray (and the sky is gray)
I’ve been for a walk (I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day (on a winter’s day)
I’d be safe and warm (I’d be safe and warm)
If I fly away (if I fly away)
Caribbean dreamin’ (Caribbean dreamin’)
On such a winter’s day
apologies to John Phillips/ The Mamas & The Papas

I got home from my morning walk and realized if I did not escape I might just break down and cry until April. I’m not heading to the Caribbean but I AM heading to Tempe, AZ. Yes!!!!

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. you have a lovely place and I’m enjoying your photos. BUT – you’re still a good 20-30 degrees cooler than my NEED. šŸ™‚ I’m not happy til the mercury is in the high 70s at a minimum

  2. I grew up in Scottsdale but always loved Tempe better. I hear there’s a huge lake or something there now that you can go out on in a boat even. Cannot imagine it. Have fun!!!

  3. Oh there is a nice lake – i think it’s called Tempe Beach or something like that. I may have posted some pics of it back in October 2020 when I was there. It IS nice. I’m not sure what we’ll do this trip. I told my son that I really didn’t care if he couldn’t take time off to spend time with me – I was coming for the heat and the sun no matter what. šŸ™‚ My first full day there is supposed to be 80F and sunny. Can. Not. Wait.

  4. I’ll be there Thursday night. šŸ™‚ Leaving my husband home to tend to BC and WC . šŸ™‚
