What A Surprise!

Dear Diary:

What a pleasant surprise I got on the weekend when I went outside to take a peek at my strawberry plant.  Yes, the leaves had filled in some of the sparser parts but peeking out from underneath the foliage were white flowers.

In my first world, the strawberry plants haven't shown any sign of flowering yet.  I think the weather has been a little too chilly to produce buds but in my second tropical world, the temperature is warm and sunny most of the time.  Pretty soon strawberries!

Good Night for now.

Spring Is Out! Summer Is In!

Dear Diary:

I couldn't let this day come and go without celebrating the idea that summer is here.  I say "idea" because today in my first world, the temperature didn't reflect summer weather at all.  This morning when I got up, my outside thermometer measured 9C!  I still needed my slippers and housecoat on to walk around the house and feel warm.

Since I live in a tropical area in my second world, I thought I would go to my beach. Truly the weather HAD to be warmer there.

It was cloudy and the water was cool so it didn't put me in a celebrating mood but at least I wasn't wearing a sweater and jeans.

Hopefully we all will have a great summer season ahead of us.  Those of us that have too many months of snow are looking forward to it.

Good Night for now.

My Annual Visit To The Vintage Fair

Dear Diary:

All my friends know how much I like vintage clothes, in any of my worlds.  I like how they seem to transport me back to other times.  They have history.  They ooze style. So I had to make my annual trip (with a loaded wallet) out to see what was offered this year.

Over the past few years, I've written several posts about my shopping excursions to Vintage Fair.  The items I bought all seem to cover different eras.  This year my purchases could be worn in many different decades.

This dress by Purple Moon was a knockout!  And what a bargain! For one price you get 7 dresses in different colours.  It was hard to choose what to wear when I went visiting but the tiger print got me.  

While I was at the fair, I managed to pick up a lot of things that would be perfect in certain role play situations.  But I just enjoy wearing the styles in any situation.

I've never been disappointed with my purchases from Vintage Fair.  They're in my closet waiting for that special occasion. 

Good Night for now.

My Plant Is Growing!

Dear Diary:

I've never been very good at growing house plants.  I forget about them.  I get busy with others things.  I get tired of them.  And of course when that happens they obviously don't flourish so thank heavens for Second Life.

I moved my strawberry plant from the green house to the outside.  The weather is starting to get warmer and some days the sun is truly hot.  That plant loves it outside and it really is growing well.

I'm so pleased with myself that I actually remembered to water it.

Good Night for now.

I'm Celebrating With My Yoyo

Dear Diary:

Today is National Yoyo Day, not an official holiday, but one of those quirky days to remember.  It's always celebrated on June 6th, in memory of Donald F. Duncan Sr who produced the yoyo in the early 1900's.

As a kid I loved the yoyo and had several over the years.  It was a lot of fun trying to do all the tricks.  So to honour this day, I grabbed my yoyo and flew out to New Orleans, my favourite US city.

Everyone you meet in New Orleans is friendly and helpful, including this policeman I met on Bourbon Street.  He just asked me what I was doing and I said, "I'm just 'walking the dog' right here!"  

Good Night for now.
