Another Quick Trip Is Here

Dear Diary:

Yes, it's another quick trip for me but not to an interesting place like Japan.  I have to fly (in my first world) to a conference for work later this afternoon.  It is nice to get away and have someone cook your meals, make your bed and tend to everything you want but I think I'd rather be home.  However, I have to attend so off I go.

In my first world I leave from a medium sized airport so I have to be there at least 2 hours ahead of time.  In my second world I can just pop in to any airport I like and can leave right away.  I checked in at the Hollywood Airport.

My plane is just coming up the runway so I need to hurry downstairs to be prepared for boarding.

See you in a week.

Good Night for now.

A Quick DayTrip To Japan

Dear Diary:

I'm fascinated with Japan - the culture, architecture, history and creativity.  So the other day I took a quick trip out to Kisaragi Town, a sim everyone should see.  It has the hustle and bustle of a large city, but with a feeling of calmness.  The people I met were very friendly.  I stopped to inquire about a parking place for my car.

First of all, I had to get my glasses out so I could even see...oh the joys of getting older!  Then I had to get my translator.  After I fumbled around and got everything I needed, a very kind lady came by and read the sign for me.  We ended up in a noodle shop for lunch.

It proved to be an enjoyable afternoon.

Good Night for now.

A Crisp Winter Walk

Dear Diary:

It's been very cold in my part of the world.  A lot of days at -28C...a few at -35C...and one with the wind reached -42C.  It's been hard to appreciate the outdoors when the wind is whipping through your jacket making it feel like you're naked inside a cold blanket.

The other day we got a break.  The temperature actually went above 0C so that called for a trip outside.  I called Chloe and we decided to head out for a pleasant walk, in winter weather.  We landed just at dusk.

A quick walk in winter is exhilarating.  It makes your cheeks rosy, your lungs full of fresh air and your whole being feels made over.  As long you're dressed properly, with lots of layers underneath a warm jacket, it is a wonderful way to get exercise.

Well, that was one day that I truly enjoyed.  What's the forecast?  More cold air headed my way.  I'd better get my walks in now.

Good Night for now.

Thinking About The Past Holiday

Dear Diary:

The Christmas holidays are the highlight of the winter for me.  I love the shopping, the busy days, the decorating and even the snow.  I spend a lot of time decorating my tree.  I'm not a theme person although I do admire some of the trees my friends put up.  My tree is a cacophony arrangement of baubles from my Grandmother, my mother, collections from my travels and a mish mash of things the mean something to me.  My life is on that tree. 

I leave everything up to Epiphany.  That was January 6th!  So now I'm putting everything away that I so carefully had put out just a few weeks ago.  I resent putting it away.  The season is over.  But I am looking forward to doing it all over again next year.

It's something to think about.

Good Night for now.
