I love exploring so early this morning I set out to wander the coast in search of a cup of coffee and some fresh air. I wasn’t disappointed in my adventures except by one thing.
These birds man, they are horrible. You can’t see the birds? Well they are those blobby grey things. I rebaked every texture on the grid trying to improve them. I fiddled with settings, I tweaked this or that I can say with confidence that this is as good as these birds get.
Bear coffee? Delicious! Birds? Bleh.
After my wake me up I went out and grabbed some necessities for dinner.
Or is it Bellisserian? I don’t really know. But I do know that it’s a perfect refuge after a long week. I picked up new chairs and and a new camper cooler and I couldn’t be happier with how this evening is shaping up.
I’ve got the grill going, cold drinks and popsicles. Don’t tell me it’s not summer. As far as I’m concerned, it’s here.
I’ve got a cold drink for you, if you want to stop by.
Isn’t that camper cooler the cutest? It’s from What Next! You need one!

People seem to be VERY torn about the new Linden home theme CHALETS so I decided to go give them a look-see after Gogo posted the demo area SLURL on Plurk.
I admit I’m a dedicated Bellisserite. Bellissarian ? Regardless, I love my Linden home. I love the gorgeously landscaped neighborhoods and the beautiful homes. I’m still in a Victorian, loathe to give up my amazing beach spot. Might not give it up – we’ll just see won’t we.
So the theme seems to be a sort of a Dutch happening, with windmills and tulips. This demo area is a little sparse – maybe I’m spoiled with the AMAZING lush areas they built for Victorians and Traditional? Or perhaps I’m being picky as this is just a demo. I’ll assume that’s the case.
They had a bit of a brewfest park set up. I’m not sure if this would be part of the outdoor design. I would say that if it is – the beers should give me a beer. Don’t tease me with beer. That’s just unkind. Also these beers are nuts – way more than this pixel girl can drink.
My quibbles with this style are small. I’m unsure of the color schemes. They just don’t do it for me. Maybe they do it for you? That’s cool if so. One thing I do like in the various models I walked are the big open rooms with nice space for camming around. I HATE SMALL ROOMS where I am always struggling to see. Nice job moles.
This is my favorite model. Windows, windows, windows. The one quibble I’ve had with all my Linden homes is either that the windows suck OR they aren’t facing what is beautiful where I live. Such as I live on the beach, the ocean is behind me. I want to see the beach, but the windows at the back of my house SUCK.
You landscape beautifully, let us see outside!
This one meets my needs of great open rooms and wonderful windows. Very cute. The color is eh, but maybe the choices would spruce it up?
It was an interesting jaunt around the chalets. They aren’t for me, but I think it’s cool that they are really creating lots of different styles to appeal to everyone. But now that I’m back on Bellisseria I’ve decided to tool around and decide if I want to pull out a different house model for a while. I’ve been in this 1 story for a while. Who knows?
I’ve done a bit of wandering today. I couldn’t figure out why I was only bringing up some really lame locations from search. I love to just search random terms and see where I end up. It turns out my search wasn’t logged in properly and I was only bringing up G rated locations. There are so many amazing builds across the grid, I never know where I’m going to end up. This little shanty town offered a lovely waterfront view as well as some snacks and games.
It looks like amphibious plane is the best way to get here if you can’t teleport in. Adventure abounds in this spot.
I’ve had such a good time exploring this location. I love this bird. I kinda want it.
How has your week been going? I got some exciting secret news today. Maybe I’ll get to show you soon!
My beloved cousin Ghanima Uriza messaged me the other day after a long absence. She has started to dip her toe into the world of mesh and I guess I had not realized how long she’d been gone – the pixel world has changed so much since the last time we were able to chat.
She’s back at work creating her beautifully hand-painted textures that were the HALLMARK of Blueblood back in the heyday. I am so excited to get to share a little something she’s been working on.
It was so lovely to chat with her, to talk about our lives and how we are both in such a different place how with regards to how we embrace Grid Life. Neither of us are willing to allow it to run us anymore, instead we are excited to get to participate in the things we love on our own terms. For me it’s blogging, for her it’s creating.
I have to say, I’m excited to have another Uriza cousin back on the grid. We’re a rare breed.

Well, it’s finally happened. I decided to get my ALT a body and well now she’s got a decent head and a decent body, I should probably let her move in. I mean, I’m accustomed to my solitary space anymore, but there is something nice about having someone who appreciates my new wine fridge.
Excuse me, OUR new wine fridge.
We decided to cook out. I picked up this ridiculously cute new table at SOY. But the toll of the week being so busy already has the both of us worn out.
After all, she’s had to go shopping to get some less ridiculous clothes. That’s a lot of work. God bless her, I never buy her anything. But now at least she looks “less” nuts. So I’m not completely ashamed to be seen with her.
I picked up a new lounger at Chez Moi (thank you for the suggestion Sparklies!) and they are perfect for a Victorian themed house. They were a perfect spot to listen to the waves and just relax this evening.
I always remember what I learned from Auntie Mame – enough is as good as a feast.
This lovely little spot in the world is enough. I am so happy to be here.
I have coveted this dress from the Alaska Metro lucky chair for weeks. I stop by there almost every log in just to take a peak to see if I’m lucky. Finally the other day, IT WAS A G!
You never saw anyone flip on their group tag and sit down so fast in your life.
It didn’t disappoint when I got it on, with it’s whispy chiffon shoulders and gorgeous embroidered flower textures. I decided to take it on a nature walk and found a lovely little spot in the Destination Guide. It’s called Timberline Lodge and I recommend ambling through the woods to see what you can find.
Happy Sunday lovelies!

I could NOT resist on this, the anniversary of IOF’s 13th year, to wear this freebie outfit I got at Shop n Hop for Christmas.
I love the Shop n Hop events. I roll through them like a kid in a candy store. I love finding new stores and grabbing freebies to see what folks are giving out, and buying things that I don’t need just because I want them.
I used to have a friend in SL who said Need wasn’t a word we used.
You might think I’m insulting this outfit, but I’m not. It’s well made. It comes with several color options and frankly, it’s cute! I like it. I was tickled to find it in the box as a gift, and felt like today was just the perfect day to wear it.
I am also wearing a skin from YS & YS whom I haven’t worn in a while and I love it. It’s a wonderful free gift also from Shop n Hop.
I needed to run out to pick up a few things today and decided I’d stop at my favorite beauty supply shop. It might not look like much, but it’s got it where it counts, kid.
After I’d grabbed a few necessities I decided to find a lunch counter to grab a quick bite. Interestingly, a found a place that had a vending machine lunch and so I decided to give that a whirl. You KNOW how much I love to eat. Plus I love fun cafes, so this had everything I was looking for!
The portion sizes I got back in exchange for my vending machine ticket were CRAZY! Am I supposed to eat all of this? Well I’ll give it a whirl! A little of this, a little of that, what a perfect treat on my shopping trip.
Now what to do with the rest of my day?
