Thankful

Thankful
Thankful

Tomorrow for those that live in the USA is Thanksgiving ~ most will be gathered around with family and friends enjoying their turkey, stuffing and all the fixings that go with the dinner ~ its one holiday that is strictly based on the food ~ turkey for most is the main focus ~ then all the different regions have their own individual sides ~ if you are in the south maybe you are grilling your turkey along with green bean casserole and cornbread ~

Along with the meal is a time of reflection ~ to be thankful for what you have whether it is just a simple meal that you cooked yourself or a full course spread…remembering as a child getting up to watch the Thanksgiving Day parade with my Dad while my Mom would of already been up early to put the turkey on ~ then all piling into our station wagon and headed to my Dad’s parents for the huge feast.  Gram and Pop Pops house was just as you expected grandparents to live ~ table was always decorated just so with the good china, way too many forks and glasses ~ but for me that was how it was and I loved the tradition…this is something I am thankful to have shared and been a part of.  My roomie along with her Mom always shared the meal with us as well, which still brings smiles.

Am also thankful to have had strict parents that kept me from getting in more trouble than I did  ~ seeing who knows what my future would of been like if they let me run amok ~ oh I was not even close to angel status *laughing* I spent most of my teen years on restriction for simple infractions like talking back, coming in past curfew, poor grades and course skipping school and getting caught drinking.  Still with all that I did survive ~ my parents are gone now but I do still am thankful for so many life lessons they taught me.

Lastly am thankful for all the friends I have met in SL and on FB ~ ones that share a hello, a laugh and just at times an ear to let me vent over some idiotic thing ~ they know who they are and how happy and thankful they are in my life ~ love them to pieces ~ so yes this might be a tad corny and mushy but I just wanted to say how thankful I am this year.  To all that celebrate the holiday *Happy Thanksgiving*  hugzz

Follow me to the wonderful Wooden Walk

Wooded Path
Welcome to Wooded Walk

Hi Everyone and welcome to another adventure with yours truly!  Sometimes you just have to go revisit certain locations over and over ~ things change like the seasons and today I took a chance to sneak in a visit on the grounds of Image Essentials to show you some curious things ~ oh yes I know that I work there and at times it keeps me busy that I forget all the wonderful things Kay adds in here especially for this months photo contest ~ so lets saunter around and see what is around…

Wooded Path1b         Beware of slow moving snail because you know snails move slow *giggling* ~ anyway this was the first thing that I came upon on the wooded path ~ a cute little fairy perched atop of the snail ~ for me am guessing this is one of her favorite pets that she likes taking out for walks ~ my I do hope she has plenty of time to spare ~ she really is a cute thing so dainty I just had to snap a pic of her while she was making her way across my path.

Wooden Path1c
Magical Unicorn

Walking further down the path we are in a bit of luck today to run into this magical unicorn ~ don’t you agree how majestic he looks ~ searching all around for to see if he belonged to anyone but how could he being all magic and what not ~ so while he was nuzzling with me I just had to come up with a name ~ grinning and poof his name just appeared before me Parsley Sparkle Reins ~ what a great name and seems it means Parsley is poetic and romantic. He is as sparkly as the milky way, and he casts mischievous spells. He nodded his magnificent head when I asked was that his name…Parsley and I had quite the time together but for myself a couple of times I had to dodge that horn seeing I did not want my brand new skirt to be sporting a hole in it ~ time was passing and I said my cya’s to Parsley maybe coming back another time ~

Wooden Path1d   I spied a nice pile of leaves that after horsing around with Parsley decided to plop down and take a rest ~ maybe I will just lay my head on my arm for a little tiny nap….sooo in case I don’t wake back up before you all leave me again thank you for keeping up with my blog ~ hugzz and all the details are at the bottom just in case ~ lays my head down and falls asleep on the leaves….

Winterfall

What a really gorgeous place to explore ~ a bit chilly so grabbed a nice fluffy fur jacket and headed off to have a look see…really was a short trip so I do know will be making my way back there several times to really look around.  Peering down the street at the end there is a very nice home – at the moment they looked like they had company so I turned the other way and gave myself a reminder to go look when no one is home *hey don’t we all do that have a peek in windows ~ you know you wanna ~ anyway I turned to my right and headed off ~ there was something interesting that my camera focus got out of wack and will have to try to fix it before my next trip but besides this iron gate were all these sets of locks – just not knowing why so many or even the reason behind them…hmmm very curious and if you go check it out.

Winterfall3

Cant really tell but the snow did start falling as did the temps ~ just look ahead there is a lighthouse and some other things to explore ~ water was chilly as I just had to put my fingers in ~ HEY could of been a nice hot spring all warm but nope the water was ice cold … BURR !  Guess no swimming here yet.

Winterfall4
Hot Cocoa Time

Wandering I did spy this picnic table with a full thermos of hot cocoa mmmmm nothing better to warm you up than a nice cup of hot chocolate ~ don’t you agree?  Snow on the ground and the air has that nice crisp clean feel to it just my time of year.  Oh yes the temps have dropped but this wooly jacket keeps me snug along with the black wool leggings ~ looking down at my shoes and back up I shrug well my footwear is not the best to wear and my tootsies are getting chilly so I might just need to head out.

Hand picked apples

Ok you caught me not wearing the best type of clothes to go tramping around winterfall, was a spur of the moment hop and once I was here not really wanting to rush back and change boots or put on a better set of clothes ~ but I will be back and on my way out those hand picked apples caught my eye and grabbed a variety of them to take back to my place and think about making an apple pie for my sweety…till later thank you for reading all the details on below ~ hugzz

Street Fighting Extraordinaire

Everyone was....
Everyone was ….

Oh another song just pops into my head while writing this post ~ here is a little sample of the lyrics ~ “everyone was Kung Fu Fighting ~ those strikes were fast as lightning” ok ok so I changed up one word to match just what I wanna show you ~ hehehe ~ now is that tune in your head?  Was a 1974 classic tune by Carl Douglas ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhUkGIsKvn0 ~ now you can listen to the original tune while I finish up ~

Was a very honored to be asked to do a blog featuring these gloves “Street Fighter” gloves by the creator Aℓκιτн ιгoηЪℓσσɗ (alkith14) ~ kind of cool that he is a follower on my flickr page and asked me ~ with that how could I not say yes ~ anyway these gloves fit really well and the detail is superb so those of you that do RP they come in male and female versions ~

Street1b
Street Fighter ~ female version

Different sizes along with different colors also these are mesh which really looks great ~ one thing I will say if you have slink hands you need to remove those before wearing the gloves ~ couldn’t really find anyone to go one on one with me but hey I look really like am ready to do some of my own fighting ~ pow ~ pow *giggling …But not really and before I forget the creator did say this was his version of “Teken” – not being a gamer am clueless but those of you that game am sure you will recognize that…His store name in case you are wanting to search right this moment is called “Natural Motions Main Store” and have provided a link so you can zip on over if you wish and see them in person…thank you again for asking me to show these to all my friends ~ and the rest of you stick around for my next post……hugzz

More from Thrift Shop….

Sometimes you just see a photo and a certain song just pops into your head ~ well once I finished this part of the lyrics from an oldie but goodie just flew into this brain of mine but trying to find the exact lyrics was a little daunting even though with all the help you do need to at least get most of the lyric correct.  Was driving me crazy ~ ok more than normal crazy but finally after much relief as well from roomie going “thank gawd” I figured out the song and found the tune on Youtube ~ YAY me … so once you see the outfit and the background maybe if you are semi old and grew up with grandparents or parents playing these tunes you will recognize the lyrics ~ if not am putting a link for you to listen ~ on to the outfit now ~ yes at times I tend to ramble on and on …… hush already right…
