 Oh! It doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I’ve bought some corn for popping
and The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It’s summer here in Kangaroo land. I know it’s snowy and cold out there your side of the world and I hope you are cozy and warm. <3

That melancholic weather + the added stress of the holidays. Families raining upon you. Kids are out of school and bored out of their mind, being at home and pissing you off 24/7. Dreading family gatherings where everyone’s main concern is not for each other’s wellbeing, but how they have one-up everyone else’s in the family. The realization that 2014 is coming to a close and “ohmygod, what have I done all year? What have I achieved?

Or maybe you’re one of the lucky ones that are free from all the stress and self-doubt.

NEVERTHELESS.

Let’s work extra hard to remember that we can make this a good season. Maybe be a bit more understanding to those who are projecting RL frustrations into SL and don’t feed trolls. And on the flip side, know thyself and be aware that you are projecting, and don’t be the troll. Projecting frustrations on someone else will never solve anything, in fact it’s just exacerbates it since now you’re going to have double drama, right?

Take some time out for yourself and I hope you won’t let the noise of this month gets to you. <3

 Song of a Sewing Machine (Constance Woodrow)

Oh, the happiest worker of all am I,
As my wheel and my needle so merrily fly;
With a spool full of thread and a heart full of song,
I am ready and willing to work the day long.
Oh, faster and faster my glad wheel flies
When it catches the light in a young maid’s eyes;
The dearest and tenderest girlhood dreams
I stitch into gossamer hems and seams.
But slower my wheel and softer my song
When fairy-like fragments are guided along –
I am stitching the dreams most sacred of all
Into dear little gowns and a wee silken shawl.

Decorating is therapeutic. :D

I need to wind down this week, and I also don’t have anything interesting to say that has no connection to work. I’m going through that phase in life where I and the people around me really need a life beyond…work. LOL. Hopefully with the Christmas holidays coming soon, we all can let our hair down!

This space is also partly inspired by another blog post. Earlier this week, Caitlin Tobias of Cait’s World plurked this post written by Canary Beck: The Instant IM and Honouring Transition Time in Second Life.

Go ahead, click that link and read it.

You’ll understand. <3

I challenge thee to The Witch’s House…

Ulalume, by Edgar Allan Poe

The skies they were ashen and sober;
The leaves they were crisped and sere—
The leaves they were withering and sere;
It was night in the lonesome October
Of my most immemorial year:
It was hard by the dim lake of Auber,
In the misty mid region of Weir—
It was down by the dank tarn of Auber,
In the ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir …

I dare you to take up the challenge of walking into this witch’s house. :P

Productive week is productive, hello lovelies, it’s me…again!

The Challenge is now into its’ 22nd round, and the theme this round is fairytale. It’s a mainstore-based event and The Challenge’s items are discounted for one week. Here’s the catalog for this round. \o/

For The Challenge, Bauwerk made this adorable cottage. It’s supposed to be a witch house, but I’m not entirely convinced. :D It’s too lovely for a cottage to house a witch. XD

Like all items out for The Challenge this round, The House of the Witch is discounted for one week (starting today!). The pack includes a normal version and a ‘snowed’ version. Since I am not a big fan of winter and snow, I decided to use the without-snow version. But if you’re curious, here:

 Now.

Let’s see you walk the step and go inside, eh? ;)
