Making a House a Home

So I spent a good part of the day trying to make my house into my home. Planting flowers and trees. Shopping for benches and beach blankets. Adding some greenery for the ducks. Adding some fish in the tidal pool. Not sure how much of all this will stay, but for now things feel a little more comfy and cozy. The swimming pool still needs LOTS of work. I’ve already used up a third of my prims, so I will probably have to toss some of what is here. 🙂 Shades of work – too many flower prims!!!! Arrggghhh!!!!! But I am having fun and enjoying myself. And after all, that’s why I’m here.

Election Night ’08

So last night I was hanging about inworld, listening to RL news about the election results. I was by myself, thinking about landscaping, planting some big trees. Darcey logged on and I invited her to join me. She tp’d in and we planted another tree. Then we decided we’d worked hard enough so we changed into our suits, stretched out in relaxation chairs, poured ourselves some iced lemonade and listened to the waves and the sea gulls. Oh- maybe I should tell you where we were? 🙂 We were hanging out at MY house. 🙂 That’s right – I now own land. With a house. With 3 trees. LOL. With WATER!!! But no ducks yet. That stupid work sim is holding my ducks hostage. 😦 I’m going to have to login there today and WEAR a duck and hope that I can smuggle it out that way!

But in the meantime – here are Darcey and I enjoying my new Home Sweet Home! Notice that I’ve not really figured out how to landscape. Although after we’d sat there awhile I realized the shore line was a little too stark for my comfort and I didn’t want to burn. 🙂 So I rezzed some palm trees and banana plants.
