Rare Occasions

My latest entries have been a bit… heavy on the mind, so I thought, I will pick up something I enjoyed very much during the last week. I would say we all, but I have the sad feeling, what I am going to say now, doesn’t counts for everyone. So I rather say >I< have this special someone, everybody else has no chance against. And I am talking here about my attention. My sister Dakota, is that person for me. If she is online, and has the time, I am all hers, no matter who else is online. She is, has been and always will be my priority number one – sorry boys.

As she is my number one and soulmate, I enjoyed my last week a lot, since she had the time, to spend it with me. We both don’t like to just sit around, well… we do if we got someone to talk about – hehe. But since we like to do some things, we had some nice adventures together.

Her rezday wasn’t that long ago, so I decided to gift her a horse. But not just some horse, no one of the amazing Bento Waterhorse Riding Horses. (If you don’t have one yet, go and get one!) So we went to the stables, and had a nice long trail ride, all over the Calas Galadhon-Park. You can imagine, two girls like us, we had a lot to talk and laugh about, not to mention, how much we loved that afternoon.

A few days later, I don’t want to bother you with every detail, we managed to go out sailing. But not just sailing, no! But flying and foiling with the Flying Shadow all across the Blake Sea. I love almost all sailing boats, provided by the great designers living in Dutch Harbour, but the FS is and has been always my absolute favourite. And while I was managing the main sail, the jib, the spinnaker and the daggers, she managed to flawlessly skid from one side to the other, if necessary.

Great outcome, we didn’t keel over once! YAY! Not as if that would happen to me anyhow, but still YAY! Our destination was Sires Isle, where we stopped, and switched to her Bandit IF. We both love it but seriously, it is not just a great boat, but hers, probably the one with the best overall paintjob in Second Life! Or that is me talking, as her sister and probably biggest fan and supporter.

Someone was playing something nice on the guitar, but when he left, Dakota thought, dang, I want music, so she picked her guitar, and serenaded us, until our time ran out. Probably one of my loveliest afternoons ever. I am still humming ….

Waiting Time

What is it about time? We feel we have not enough. It goes by slowly or super fast, sometimes it is as if it stands still. Time is a construct we made up, to measure the circles the earth makes around the sun. The weird thing is, that time is endless even though sometimes it is short.

This week, for me, it was both at the same time. All day long, time was slow, standing still, and when the time came, to meet someone, it was over, and more than ones, before it even begun.

People often say, the anticipation is half the pleasure, but what, if there is no pleasure at all in the end, and everything you get, is anticipation and waiting. In that constellation waiting is probably the worst part. One fills their time with nonsense, to not be just waiting, and also to be able to drop whatever one is doing immediately.

So what is it with people, who make you wait for them? And I don’t mean to wait for something special to happen, I mean to simply spent time with each other! I think, Coco Chanel was the one who said “Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. ” And I think, with people who make you wait, it is the same thing.

For me, it ended in going to bed alone, and now, enjoying my afternoon tea, while I blog for you, and watch a movie with my brother. Because, HE doesn’t makes me wait.

A long overdue Family Day

My long-term readers know that I have a kid and that kid has a Dad. We separated on good terms and still take both care of our boy. Since we hadn’t much time together lately, we were able to have a family day just yesterday, and we had so much fun.

Jurasic Park- Family Portrait-CD

Kantows, that is Damiens Daddy, had the great Idea to take us out to a dinosaurs park.

Since I love the T-Rex best, I picked this song to go with it, I hope you will find it as catchy as I do. We all had such a great bonding time together, and it felt really family like again, even more, like nothing had ever shifted or changed during the last year.

Damien even told us what happens when to people get a room, “they start sleeping because everyone knows, that babies come from the birds!” God my son is soo wise, how could I ever doubt that child-logic?!

But the park was great, the dinosaurs were kind, and had eaten, so we could get close to them, on one Damien could even sit for a moment, to take a picture.

It ended how a family day is supposed to end. With Pizza for everyone, beer for the parents and a hot cocoa for the little boy. After some family shots, we took him to bed together, I, as the mommy, read him a good night story, and Daddy fell asleep, before Damien could close his eyes.

Dancing with my Stars

Last night I checked in on my sister Dakotas set. She has another sister, a friend of me, and the two of us danced together. It was like dancing with the stars all over, because damn she got moves! I wanted to look clubby and fresh for once, so I stepped out of my comfort zone of blue jeans and shirts, and put on a mini and a cropped sweater. Did I felt exposed, heck I did, but I felt good too. And for the first time in a long while I really had fun, I was laughing and just got out there. I even enjoyed the music, which is a huge compliment to my sister Dakota, because I usually hate electronic beats.

It was awesome to dance and just have fun with the girls, although .. I was chatting via SMS (some would call them IMs) with a special someone.. and dang he made my panties drop so hard, that they just ripped a hole down to Australia. I think I need to ask a friend there to retrieve them, so I can get them back.

While the evening passed by, something happened, and I am really happy about it. I don’t know how or why but.. suddenly Ana told me, that I am a sister to her as much as Dakota is. That really warmed my heart. This way I am flattered, that we became family, even without being related by blood, or in the SL universe, related by bits.

I think, I should do that more often, getting out of my comfort zone, who knows what good it might brings, when I am out of my jeans…

A boy needs a treehouse …

Damien my sweet son, lives with me again since June 2015. I love him madly, and he is the sun of my life, but also a real dragon pup .. i can totally blame myself therefor, because i am spoiling him rotten!

Tho, in the spirit of a boy needs a treehouse, my little Darling got now one. His aunti Hera, my neighbour and a very close friend of mine, gifted him one. And not just some treehouse, no its a Dustbunny Rare item, from the newest Arcade…

It startet pretty harmless, we were having breakfast and Damien still thought sumemr clothing would be fashionable. Jaspar came for a visit as well and we all had coffee, but Damien he got cocoa, and we all waffels!

While Damien was testing his new fall-fashion i put into his drawers, i sneaked out, to set up his treehouse, for his first overnight party!

It is adorable and has just enough room for two to three kids and their toys. I took the liberty to install a radiator, tho they wont freeze by night and rough sea winds.

Just an ordinary day!

Just a day,
Just an ordinary day.
Just trying to get by.
Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking to the sky.
And as he asked if I would come along
I started to realize
That everyday he finds
Just what he’s looking for,
Like a shooting star he shines.

He said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don’t you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand

Just like the lyrics of Vanessa Carlton, my day was pretty ordinary, well it started like this, but how it turned out? I put on my Animare-HUD for this gorgerous shot in the water, close to the beach where i live. Even Samson my Orca helped me and just showed up in the right moment for this shot. Just a few minutes later, Jaspar ….

my lovely, sexy bestie came over to me, to hijack me for a ride in his new Madpea. He grew very fond of that boat, something I can totally relate to. He even told me his ‘fuck off’ line.

“OH! I am sorry, you must have mistaken me with someone who cares!”

While we were sailing someone called me home, someone I grew fond of the last week, for a surprise. He hates shopping for clothes and fitting and everything that comes with it.. but he did it even with full TMP Body… what a surprise, I am still smiling about this kind- and sweetness.

While we were talking, Damien woke up, and wanted some fun on the beach with his mommy. He was his usual bratty, and nosey self, but he swam, for the first time alone, with floaties, but he swam. I am a very proud mommy right now!

Zoolander – or just a family day at the Zoo

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

Today I thought it was time, that my boyfriend, and my son spent some time together, to get to know each other better. Quron had the great idea, we could go to the Zoo together, and Damien loves them, like most kids do!

We choose the Oasis Zoo, and it was amazing, we couldn’t even explore everything with one visit, so we will definatly go there again another day!

But we had all we need, even cotton candy, everyone in their favorite color!

The primate house was a huge highlight, and we had the luxury, seeing thiscapuchin monkey eat its fruits! Damien said very wisely “Oh Mommy, so humans are just apes too?!”

Unfortunately we started on the right side, but the left side had more kids-stuff. So the next time we will take the other way around. But Damien got spoiled badly.. not one but two monkey plushies and an ant-farm .. someone should educate his mommy….
