By Your Side

By Your Side

Featuring PosEd Poses and Ayla

You think I’d leave your side, baby
You know me better than that
Think I’d leave you down when you’re down on your knees
I wouldn’t do that
I’ll tell you you’re right when you’re wrong
And if only you could see into me
Oh, when you’re cold
I’ll be there, hold you tight to me
When you’re on the outside, baby, and you can’t get in
I will show you, you’re so much better than you know
When you’re lost
When you’re alone and you can’t get back again
I’ll find you, darling, I’ll bring you home
And if you want to cry
I am here to dry your eyes
And in no time, you’ll be fine
You think I’d leave your side, baby
You know me better than that
Think I’d leave you down when you’re down on your knees
I wouldn’t do that
I’ll tell you you’re right when you’re wrong
And if only you could see into me
Oh, when you’re cold
I’ll be there, hold you tight to me
Oh, when you’re low
I’ll be there by your side, baby
Oh, when you’re cold
I’ll be there, hold you tight to me
Oh, when you’re low
I’ll be there by your side, baby

Taking My Moment

Taking A Moment

Featuring PosEd Poses

The last few days around here have been crazy!  This past Friday morning at 6:30 AM,  our spare bedroom ceiling fell to the floor, the sheetrock soaked from the rain that has been going on for days.

A little background…my husbands job was moved out of state a few years back and he moved into an apartment and kept his house in Virginia.  After we met we then moved into a lovely rental home while he was still deciding what to do with his house back in Virginia.  There is a very large military, technology, and research presence where we live now, with contractors coming and going all the time.  Due to this most home rentals are handled through real estate companies who then deal with the actual home owner.  This works out well most of the time since the real estate company has their reputation on the line.

Fast forward to last week!  We had huge winds (no rain yet) that blew off several shingles.  I took pictures and contacted realtor.  They responded that the owner had contacted her insurance to make a claim.  Then the rain started…POURING rain and a couple days later…crash.  So now we have  a bigger problem, right?  It was explained to us by the realtor that because when I reported the missing shingles there was no actual leak that it was not an emergency and emergencies come first.  Understandable but what about that ounce of prevention I have heard about…or even common sense!

To make a long story short (too late, right), on Saturday, a roofer came and put up a too small tarp that still allowed leaking, a demolition guy came and cleaned up the mess AFTER helping my husband empty the entire room (I was just a week out from surgery that has me on a 6 week, 5 pound lifting limit), the rain continued all day and night Saturday resulting in more leaking and of course no work was done yesterday.  Though I was completely frustrated with the comedy of errors it had become, when Sunday arrived and I saw the sun for the first time in about a week I was able to just let it all go.  We are safe, the contents of the spare room are fine (though they are scattered throughout the house) and I don’t have to cough up any money for roof repairs.

So I put on my comfy clothes and did a little exploring in Second Life and found this nice relaxing spot at Soul2Soul Falls and took my moment!  Happy Monday everyone…let the construction begin!

I guess I have to type something…I have been staring at this photo and otherwise blank screen for a couple of days now.  I moved on to something else and now find myself here again.  I have gone back and forth between posting and not posting this photo.  My dad had a stroke the day before Christmas Eve and it seems every step forward he has taken something happens and its two steps back.  I am generally a private person so I most likely won’t speak on this again but decided to post this to remind you all to be kind to one another, friends, family and strangers.  Tell the people you love that you love them.  Show them with your words AND actions and if you would, please think happy thoughts for my dad!

Listen With Your Eyes

listen with your eyes

Featuring PosEd Poses

To my husband

It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain what I hear when you don’t say a thing
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all
All day long I can hear people talking out loud
but when you hold me near you drown out the crowd
Old Mister Webster could never define
what’s being said between your heart and mine
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

Visions of Sugarplums

Visions of Sugarplums (2)

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.

We are right in the middle of that time of year where treats and goodies are plentiful everywhere you look.  Myself, I have been thinking about Russian Teacakes.  They are a Christmas tradition for me and I admit to visions of them dancing in my head even while “snug” in my chair.  I am loving all the Christmas decor and photos and am starting to wonder what we will all be taking photos of after Christmas.

My pose today is by PosEd Poses and is aptly named “Thinking Out Loud”.  If you look closely you can see I am thinking about sugarplums and other treats “dancing” in my head.  I need pecans for my teacakes…I may as well head to the store so I can make my teacakes and then start thinking about the next tasty treat.

My Soft Place to Land

My Soft Place to Land

A soft place to land…we all need one.  I have a great one in my husband.  Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes he’s as soft as a brick if you know what I mean but that is to be expected in any relationship.  Not every day is perfect and there are times he makes me angry or just irritates me and I know there are times I do the same to him.  I don’t like picking up the jalapeno stems he constantly leaves on the kitchen counter and I know he doesn’t like it when I fact check him on things…like *ahem* the build up of co2 from a vent free gas fireplace for instance.

Even with all of that, he and I have far more perfect days than imperfect ones and I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world.  I have learned a lot about relationships from him as well, most important I think is looking at things from the other person’s viewpoint….something that is not always easy to do when your emotions are in the way.  I have to remind myself that just because we are having an “imperfect” day doesn’t mean he has stopped loving me.  We can be angry with one another but that doesn’t mean the love is gone. He has stayed by my side through some major medical issues, provides a great life for the both of us, encourages my dreams, tells me he is proud of me and brings me a candy bar and a frozen coke several times a week as he comes home from work.  I hope he feels those same things from me..taken care of, respected and most of all, loved.

My Turning Page

The Rose

To my husband

TURNING PAGE

I’ve waited a hundred years
But I’d wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do
If I had only felt the warmth within your touch
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough
Well I would have known
What I was living for all along
What I’ve been living for
Your love is my turning page
Where only the sweetest words remain
Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase
I surrender who I’ve been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Well I would have known
What I’ve been living for all along
What I’ve been living for
Though we’re tethered to the story we must tell
When I saw you, well I knew we’d tell it well
With a whisper we will tame the vicious seas
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees

Fairy Photography

Fairy Photography(1)

My daughter, an only child, got married 2 weeks ago.  It was wonderful and bittersweet at the same time.  I am so proud of her and who she has become.  We live hundreds of miles apart and I miss her every day.  She and I went hunting for fairies often when she was little and being the creative child she was, she spent a good month one summer, making tiny articles of clothing for the fairies she was sure flitted around our house.  They were bits of twisted and tied fabric that I still have to this day.  She would lay them out near her bed each night, sometimes with a note, and every morning those tiny pieces of clothing had been scooped up by the fairies sometime in the night.  This beautiful pose by PosEd Poses was a sweet reminder of the childhood moments she and I shared.  Someday I hope she has a blond haired little beauty of her own and that they spend warm summer evenings hunting fairy boys and girls among the flowerbeds and trees.

Winter Woods

Winter Woods

I know, I know!  Here I am posting a winter photo and it’s not even Halloween yet!  I do love the beauty of winter and appreciate it more now that I live in a state where it rarely snows enough to make even a dusting.  Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t want to live where the snow comes and sticks around for months anymore but I do miss it very much at Christmas.  I am starting to see posts regarding some of the winter/Christmas events and really, like most things, it will be here before we know it.  I have a feeling I will be getting my winter fix via Second Life this year!  I’m off to a great start with this photo featuring items from PosEd Poses and TLC Home Collection.  The pose is currently at the Pose Fair and the TLC items can be found at the inworld store.  I have to give a shout out to Studio Skye and Alex Bader as well!  I would be lost without his items that are my “go to’s” for set building!  Thank you all for the great creations!
