Usually on Friday nights, I get together with my best friend of 14 years for either time at the gym, or dinner, or shopping, or sometimes all of it. But her little one has the H1N1 [prayers that he recovers quickly from that would be helpful, btw.] and so she's under quarantine with her family. So resigned to a night in SL, I was hopeful that Tyson or Sophia would be in world, since I haven't gotten to see either of them much lately. But, that was not to be either. So...I set about entertaining myself. If you're on my plurk list, you already pretty much saw these pictures. :)
I started out by running around in my toe shoes [yes, still] and heading out to Ministry of Motion to play with dances.
While I was there, a girl stopped to ask me what was at that store. Uh... look around? LOL Then she asked me if I got paid for dancing there. Nope, sorry, these dance pads take your money, they don't give it to you. Might be for the best. She might have taken camping money and bought another outfit like this.
After that, I went home and decorated the front of the house for Halloween. The inside of our home still isn't really furnished, but the front looks good. LOL
One thing I really wanted to do on the island for the fall was create a pumpkin patch. So...that's what I did.
Then I got bored, used the Emerald Viewer command "gth 1000000," and ...
Not a good look.
Then I did a little yardwork.
I thought I'd go over and check on Emerald's chickens, since she's about to send most of them to the big chicken coop in the sky. I didn't realize she had her turtles out in the chicken coop. But um...hey Em? I'm kinda thinking this? Isn't right.
I spent the rest of the evening putting down a few things in the house [not in place, mostly just in one room to look at them] and watching two explorers wander the island. As I watched them, I realized that the island has never been prettier. I also realized I spend too much time keeping busy and not enough time just exploring what others have done.
Maybe one day I'll learn to just relax and smell the roses. :)
