That Fall Nip

In real life, I live in Alabama, which takes forever to get real cold. It’s just now getting down to chilly temps in the evening and at night, but still in the upper 70s during the day. It was hot enough during the day today to make the metal on our door burn our hands. Was definitely nice lawn mowing weather though! This coming week, however, it’s getting lower which means I’ll have a nice pot of chili on mid week and enjoy that to its fullest. Soup just tastes better in colder weather.

We still have yet to turn our sim into fall, which at this point I think we’ll just skip that and go straight to snow. I will take down the apple area when it happens, so I wanted to get in a photo or two while it was still there.

What’s your favorite part about fall? Mine is the holidays that start and pumpkin EVERYTHING!

Does It Matter?

It’s me again, Margaret.

Does anyone even remember that song or am I showing my ancient age again? Hah. Annnnnyway. . .

I’ve not kept up with this blog like I’ve really wanted. Between quarrantine, a virus scare, having a house full when I’m not used to it, an emergency move to Alabama, getting more heavily involved in WoW and putting my SL Music on hiatus, this has just gotten put on the back burner and when I think I want to do something, I have been lazy and unmotivated. I’m going to try to start to do better and actually start improving my photos.

I got this jacket at this week’s FLF and from there build a whole outfit around AsteroidBox. I really like their darker things, and get excited when they have some clothing out. I tend to buy their Sat Sale and even Kustom9 offerings when it fits my style, like this does. I’m kind of obsessed with this look, especially with the shorter hair. What do you think?

These Pictures of You

This is a story of love and loss. I chose this medium for my “hate” portrait for the Adams Photo Challenge mostly because it symbolizes the worst and best kind of feeling, the feeling of letting go after you lose someone important to you. 2019 started out as a year of loss for me. It started with losing my partner at the beginning of the year, and losing the people I held closest as family mid-year. However, after that I not only found kinship with a new, amazing group of people I’m proud to call family (I love you Anatines), I also learned to be with myself.

Do I miss the people I am moving on from? Yeah, sometimes, of course. When you care about someone you can’t just turn it off. I wish all of them the best. But, it’s also time to let that shit go and move on with life. Be ready to make new experiences and new mistakes. That’s where I am now. Leaving the hate and hurt in the past and moving on.
