Sunday is for Self Care

My friend Gogo over at Juicybomb told me about a new residential community called Portofino that is to die for with so many great things to see and do that I had to check it out. So I drove down to the train station to ride over in style to check out this new to me place.

I specifically went for lunch, hoping to find a nice café and wasn’t disappointed. Portofino is a roleplay sim but it’s great for us tourists also, and I’ll be going back a lot I can tell. It’s just lovely and welcoming.

After lunch I found the cutest nail shop that I couldn’t resist stopping in for a quick manicure.

It’s really lovely to have an entire city here to come to and do all the things Gidgey loves – did I mention there is both bowling and roller skating? Plus lots of dining options and even a big box retailer we will refer to as Bullseye ! You already know I went and smelled some candles.

After my exploration and adventures I decided I deserved a little treat so I grabbed a slide of really good cake at the local bakery.

Portofino? Can’t go wrong there! I love it!

Seaside Market Day

I hopped a taxi and headed to the seaside market to see what is on the must haves for the day. First things first. I found this outfit in my inventory – I think it was a free gift from something. It’s cute enough, top and skirt in neutral colors but look, my bootie is hanging out the back.

I’m not showing you. I’m a married woman.

The front is worse though, because it’s got panties (to which I say THANK YOU) but they show under the skirt.

It’s as though I’ve got some really long, dangly vagina under my skirt.

Sorry about my unwieldy vagina, boys. I can’t control it.

Just kidding though – I had to take the panties off and alpha out the old vag.

Am I complaining about an item I was given for free?

Nope.

My POV is as follows. There are some people who are probably into having their vag hang out and to them I say, good for you. You do you. I’m just not one of those ladies.

Overall it was a lovely outfit for a random market day at a lovely location.

How was your Thursday? Hopefully it had just the amount of vagina that you like.

Christmas Eve’ll find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Lelutka has released a new mesh head called Simone. It’s a special edition head with additional expressions including this mournful one that perfectly captures some of the emotional turmoil I am feeling this Christmas season. With the passing of my aunt this summer, everyone from my parents’ generation is now gone. My sister had a tough struggle with cancer last year and came though in the end, but now has a new cancer that has gone from Stage One to Stage Four in just one month. I will confess I cry a lot lately, but I am still hopeful she will beat the odds. She is the strongest woman I know. Homesickness has manifested itself in the kitchen with traditional Christmas baking like lefse and rosettes and cooking up Cherry Soup with Dumplings, the foods that make me think of home and family.

No one loved Christmas more than my mom. Each year, my dad and my uncle would scour the woods for the perfect black spruce or balsam fir. It has to be 17 feet with no bare spots, so when I put the angel on the top it stopped just shy of the ceiling. Dad made a tree stand with wheels so we could turn it to decorate it evenly. I did the top from my bedroom balcony while they did the middle and bottom before we oh-so-carefully wheeled it across the living room so it was framed in the center by all the windows that faced onto the lake. It was a huge undertaking that was never done in a day, particularly since many of the ornaments were generational hand-me-downs and hand-made memory-laden pieces that prompted stories and remembrances of the past. There were no themed trees or single-colored trees because that store of ornaments was much more precious – a store of memories.
