Comfort & Warmth

It is early in spring here in Australia, and I am already longing for autumn. A cozy couch to curl up on in front of a crackling fire would be amazing. Instead, the temperature is hovering around 31C and I am wearing shorts with the windows wide open.

But with all of these delicious home & garden goodies, I am pretending the frost is just around the corner.

The nirvana set from [ keke ] is as extensive as it is exquisite. You can find it at the current round of Shiny Shabby. And the sofa by Kuro can be found at the main store, where there is currently a sale on selected items. It’s a good time to stock up.

Tea & Sympathy

Just when I thought I was completely over the flu, I got hit with it again. This is a very nasty strain that seems to cycle back and just torment you with a sore throat, headache and rumbling cough. I can say, unequivocally, that I am over it.

Over having it; not actually over it. So I am dosing myself with loads of tea with honey and lemon and resting as much as possible. Thanks to [ keke ], I can serve up my tea in style with this weekend’s 50L special, the “hard to find set” in blush. This is an amazing bargain, with eight pieces in a lovely shade for one small price.

You can find this set at the [ keke ] mainstore if you, too, need tea and sympathy.

On The Edge Of Forever

I think it’s wonderful to find accessories designed for the Water Horse Riding Horse at mainstream events. Jinx has once again done this at The Liaison Collaborative. This time it is a side saddle and a dress that works with it. The top is an Omega applier and the skirt is pretty much one-size-fits all and comes with a colour-change HUD. You will need to alpha out your legs and possibly your pelvis (like I did), but it makes for a lovely ensemble. Best of all, the saddle comes with versions for both the Warmblood (English) and Quarter Horse (Western). Since there are a lot more accessories for the Quarter Horse available, this is very welcome news for us Warmblood owners!

Also good to know for Water Horse owners is that Calas Galadhon Park has riding trails set up all throughout the sims. There is a particularly long coastal trail that covers the full perimeter of the park. And for those of you who don’t own a horse, they have rezzers in some of the sims, including double riders so you can enjoy the park with your loved one or friend. Do remember that these sims are maintained for our use by two individuals, so if you are able, please leave a donation to assist with the upkeep at one of the several donation stations set up throughout the park.

When riding along the trails, there are lots of places to stop and enjoy the scenery. I just happened to do it here, on the edge of forever.

I wasn’t even afraid to look down.
