Always Thankful for Family

A while ago I took my niece Livy to her grandparents cottage, and while we were there I thought it would be a good idea to take some Thanksgiving themed pictures because I wasn't sure I would see her for the holiday. And because I am all about cheesiness I made sure we had matching outfits. I will not even begin to describe the amount of shapewear I had to wear underneath to get this dress to fit. What can I say the only matching outfits I could find were in the kids department. Once I was trussed up and dressed like a turkey we headed outside to take some pictures. I got the camera all set up on the tripod and angled as best I could. I then scooped Livy up in to my arms and told her to say cheese. It seems the little trickster didn't like my smile and helped "fix" it.
Silly Girl

She is just a laugh a minute I tell ya. I thought it would be good for Livy to write down what she was thankful for on an easel I found in the shed. I handed her a piece of chalk and got to setting up the camera for another picture. When I first walked over after adjusting the camera I saw she was thankful for candy. I asked her if there was anything else she was thankful for, knowing there was only one answer I was looking for. She listed a few other things before landing on the one I wanted to see. It's nice to know where family ranks on the list!
I give up!

A Pirate Story Part Two

            When Morgana woke up the following morning she found a beautiful gown draped next to her. She has no idea who is was from or who had spotted her, but since it covered her much more than what she was wearing she put it on. Once dressed she spotted a ship in the cove below her, it felt like ages since she had been the captain of her own vessel.
Longing - A Pirate Story

           She lusted after the ship terribly and was lost to her own thoughts. She was staring dreamily at the ship as a stranger approached. He said to her, "I see you are staring at my ship.", needless to say this startled her greatly as she did not hear his approach.
Sneaky - A Pirate Story

               He didn't let on that he knew her to be the much famed Captain Morgana, but all good pirates knew who she was. He invited her to join him on his ship. Having few options available to her and with much caution she decided to join him. They sailed far from the archipelago that had caused her so much grief. She taught him how to be a feared but just pirate as they sailed the seas together. Overtime they took their fortune and sailed off into the sunset, putting their pirating days behind them.

A Pirate Story - Part One

              Long ago in a far away land there was a pirate who sailed the seas. She was the much feared Captain Morgana. One days she sailed her ship too close to an island in an archipelago and was captured by the king's Navy. These men had her caged and brought to the king. He then ordered the men to place her in a secret location in the castle. This is where the king kept his human prizes. He and the lords or his court would stare with their beady eyes at all the ladies kept there. Once a day a shaft of light would land on her cage and it allowed her to keep hope alive.
Caged - a Pirate Story

                        One day after the cage was cleaned the guard did not snap the lock tight on her cage. This was her chance to escape! She quietly followed the route she glimpsed the lords taking each time they visited the secret rooms. After some trial and error she was finally free of the castle. She allowed herself one moment to pause and breath deeply the sweet salty air of freedom before looking for a means to getting away from the castle.
Freedom- a Pirate Story

           She stumbled upon a rowboat and set off rowing to her what she hoped was safety. She rowed all night and into the morning trying to put as much distance between her and the island of the awful king. As she tired she accidentally steered her rowboat into some rocks. As her rowboat started to sink she made her way onto the island she crashed ashore on.
Rocks suck - a Pirate Story

             Knowing the beaches low ground would leave her vulnerable she started climbing the hills of the island attempting to seek higher ground. She finally made it to the top of one of the tall hills on the island. It provided a good view of the main village of the island.
Safety?- a Pirate Story

            Afterwards she found a seemingly safe spot to sleep and drifted off feeling free for the first time in ages. To be continued...

Fixing a Koala Nightmare

Every once in a while I take my adorable niece Livy to her grandparents cabin for a get away. It's a little cabin full of older furnishing and stuff my parents felt the need to keep. In one of the bedrooms sit a koala bear that I got as a graduation gift ages ago. Someone saw my cute bear and thought it would be funny to tell Livy about drop bears! Now she is terrified of the sweet bear sitting upon the chair. I think she envisions this when she looks at my poor bear.
Scare Bear

Tonight when she was all ready for bed she covered her eyes trying to hide from the koala.
No sleeping!

Since she was so terrified I decided to make up a little story to help her fall asleep and maybe forget about the whole drop bear thing...

Once upon a time there was a smart koala named Klaude. He lived in a house very similar to this one. He was a sneaky little koala and like to sneak out of bed at night and head to the kitchen to look for sweet treats.


After sneaking a treat he would head outside to find his friend Botti the black bear.

Bear to Bear conversation

Botti was an avid painter so he would always talking to Klaude about colors and shapes, but inevitably their conversations always devolved into talk of food. This is usually the point where Klaude bid a fond farewell to his friend and headed back indoors. Klaude would climb up into his favorite chair and drift off to sleep, just like you should be. Maybe my own Klaude will have some adventures tonight protecting you from nightmares. 
The End

With the story told Livy peacefully drifted off to sleep and there were no nightmares had that night.

Shades of Brown

The Walkway

Brown seems to be the prevailing color in my world at the moment. I am sure it will soon be replaced with white, but for the time being there is brown. The trees are naked! I also realize I have been wearing boots a lot lately. I think that is because in my non-digital life I live in boots this time of year. It's possible I may have a boot addiction. But that is for another day. I chose the red purse for a pop of color against my brown canvas, though it does come with a HUD so I could have gone all brown. I think the red was a good choice.
The Walkway II

There are many things that I envy about my digital self, one of those is her ability to always look good in a hat. She doesn't have to deal with hat head when taking one off. Oh well, at least with this hair I could wear it with or without the hat. I however think the hat looks good and besides you not want that heat escaping. I think I may have yammered on enough this morning. I will free you from my thoughts by sharing the credits of this look with you.

A Love Lost

The Tragedy

If only he had listened to the warning on the wall and had not ventured into this strange lighthouse maybe he would still be with her. It has been a year since his mysterious death and she just can not let go. She wrapped herself in his old military jacket and pants just to feel close to him, sure they didn't fit properly, but they were his and she missed him greatly. After his death she fell into deep despair and was determined that she could bring him back to life. All year she search through libraries, old book stores, and even the few occult shops she found nearby. hoping to come across something that would help, and she did. Today was the day when she would bring him back to life!
The Hopeful Resurrection

She had found a book and gathered all the supplies that were required for his resurrection. She got to work reading the words and mixing all the things together. She was so filled with hope that he love would be returning to her. Suddenly a light began to emanate from the book. She looked on with bated breath awaiting for her love. What she saw made her gasp in horror!
A Demon Released

That was not her long lost love she saw rise from the tome, it was some sort of demon. Her skin was red as a ruby and she flames shooting through her hair. The poor dear recalls nothing after that, at least that is the story she told me when I visited her in the asylum.

Last Leaves of Fall

Falling Leaves I

This autumn has been a bittersweet one for me. It is the last one that I will be living in New England for. Now I may be biased, but I think Autumn in New England is beyond compare. The leaves are ablaze with colors that defy description. At least that is how I feel about it. As with most things the beautiful foliage must come to an end.
Falling Leaves II

So as I sit here on the ground, as the last of the leaves float down, I will comfort myself knowing that like the seasons life changes. So as I await the start of winter I will await the new adventure ahead, just without the need for a heavy jacket just yet.
