I Like To Grow Things

Dear Diary:

This past weekend was a super duper one here in my first life  (It's always super duper in my second one!) so I decided to get into the garden and get rid of a lot of dead leaves.  After I cleared a lot of my flower beds, I could see the iris and tulips trying to get through to the sun.  This spurred me on to do some planting in my other world.

At the Lost and Found Event, Free Bird is offering an interactive strawberry plant.  I thought this was a great idea.  In my first world, I do go out strawberry picking in the bush but it is hard work and the strawberries are usually small...but very tasty.  One year I did try putting a strawberry plant in a hanging basket but the birds got to the berries before I did.  This plant is more forgiving but it does have to be watered regularly or it will cease growing and start all over again.

So I retreated into the greenhouse to start up my little plant.  It's thriving!  I will keep you up to date on how it's doing.

Good Night for now.

Do You Have Your Towel On? Where Are You?

Dear Diary:

May 25 signifies Towel Day.  Everyone who has read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" will be celebrating today, in honour of Douglas Adams, the author of the book.

A lot of people will be out IN their towels or at least carrying them.  You'll see them on people going to work; to school or shopping.  Towels will be everywhere!

I like to pick different locations to wear my towel as I did in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. This year, I've chosen to wear my towel to a gorgeous place, featured in the Destination Guide.  I flew out to My Secret Garden.

It's a beautiful sim with lots to look at.  I chose the Art in the Park area and discovered two art canvases that had poses.  I feel as if I'm part of the painting.

To participate in Towel Day, there are certain things you can do:
     - carry a towel 
     - read or re-read any of the books authored by Douglas Adams (I think there might       be a movie adaptation out too)

Check out this helpful website:
It gives lots of ideas and explains Towel Day.

Finally DON'T PANIC!  No matter what comes your way today, your towel will help you out.

Good Night for now.

I'm Adding Milk To The Menu

Dear Diary:

When I was a kid, I drank lots of milk...litres and litres during the week.  It didn't have to be flavoured, just plain white milk was perfect for me.  But as I got older, milk didn't hold the same desire for me.  I got away from drinking milk for every meal and just had it with supper.  Eventually I did away with the supper drink and only had it with my cereal.  Recently I decided I better start drinking it again.

On a recent trip to New York, I stopped in at a KFC for my fix of a spicy chicken sandwich.  Yummy!  Parked out front was a milk truck making a late afternoon delivery.

That was a sign!  I started adding milk to my diet once again.  I think the calcium will do me good.

Good Night for now.

It's My Time To Catch Up

Dear Diary:

I've been super busy in my first world lately and I seem to have fallen behind in my blogging job.  Having said that, I'm going to combine two of the things I had to do.

Strawberry Singh has been keeping me on my toes!  She has posted two challenges lately that I'm just completing now.  The first one is the Yearbook Challenge.

I took this picture just after I became the "new" me so I figured it qualified to be in the yearbook. year 10 years for me!!  That's hard to believe.  I did other yearbook challenges in 2015 and 2016.  I seem to be getting as I go along.

The other challenge Berry threw out was the Vlogger Challenge from the end of April but I'm not the swiftest tortoise in this race so it did take me a long time to do it over and over and over.  Then I discovered my sound was rather muffled but I wasn't about to do it another over again.  So you can view it here.

Whew!!  I feel I accomplished what I was supposed to do...or did I???  That's it for awhile...I think.

Good Night for now.

A Weekend Trip With My Dog

Dear Diary:

I managed to buy two more pets - dogs of course - and these are spaniels!  

When I was about 6, my first pet was a black and tan cocker spaniel.  I talked my Mom and Dad into taking a trip to a local pet shop to look at getting a gold fish for me.  We walked out of the store with a dog.  He was beautiful but we only had him for a short time as he wasn't very healthy.  After that, our family had a variety of pets but still mostly dogs.  My Mom liked dachsunds so we never again had a spaniel.  But when I moved out on my own, a spaniel was the first thing I got.

I bought two adorable cockers at The Epiphany from Jian.  The first one I received was perfect since she is a stay-at-home dog.  She isn't really a guard dog.  She prances around, barks girly like - and wags her tail.  The second one is perfect to carry around for sight seeing.  She is also friendly, wagging her tail and getting excited at everyone she meets.

This weekend I took a trip to a fabulous sim, Chelsea by the sea.  Of course I had to take the dog with me.  The weather was perfect, the scenery is gorgeous and there are a lot of places to explore.  Fly out and scout out the surroundings for yourself.

Good Night for now.
