…So you see our very existence is a rhythm, of waking and sleeping, eating and moving, and that’s all we’re doing. Just consider what we do everyday. What’s it all about? Does it really mean anything? Does it go anywhere? It’s just we keep wanting to do this kind of a ‘hoop-dee-da’. So you can get a certain vision of life, where everything is seen to be a complex pattern of rhythm.
New at Jess Poses Marketplace are 7 Hip Hop Bento poses; there are 2 couple poses and 5 male poses! Mahogany and I are finding the rhythm with the Hip Hop Couple 1 pose right here. Also be sure to check out the amazing tattoos by CAROL G. The Time Male TaTToo comes in black or colour and you can find it at the CAROL G Mainstore!
1: the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2: a period of stagnation or inactivity
Did you know?
Dogs aren’t the only creatures uncomfortable in oppressive heat, so why does a dog get singled out in dog days? The dog here is actually the Dog Star, which is also called Sirius. The star has long been associated with sultry weather in the northern hemisphere because it rises simultaneously with the sun during the hottest days of summer. In the ancient Greek constellation system, this star (called Seirios in Greek) was considered the hound of the hunter Orion and was given the epithet Kyon, meaning “dog.” The Greek writer Plutarch referred to the hot days of summer as hēmerai kynades (literally, “dog days”), and a Latin translation of this expression as dies caniculares is the source of our English phrase.
If you read my previous blog post you already know that The Float House is tiny. It’s one small room, with open doors on either side. I didn’t have to decorate the inside to show off the house, but the moment I saw it I knew I was going to do it. The Float House is perfect for spending a day on the shore; do some fishing and prepare it right there on the deck and maybe even stay the night and enjoy a morning swim in the sea. Sounds perfect to me.
This post is not sponsored by Nutmeg. I just love their designs and my inventory contains quite a lot of their stuff and, hell yes, I’m going to use them in my blog from time to time.
For pictures of The Float House exterior please see this post.
I think I’m going to stay on the coast for the duration of the summer. It’s really nice, not too hot, and take a look at this cute little float house I found today by Never Totally Dead! Decorated with hanging wall planters by HJM Designs and interior decor by Nutmeg (I’ll show you a picture of that later in a post by itself). The Float House comes with a chair containing single sits (the chair is unlinked so you can move it around) and the house has a resizer menu on touch. I’m showing the original size, which has a Land Impact of 32. HJM Designs have made 5 different versions of The Bucket Wall Planters, I’ve used the Mixed Flowers and the Hanging Plant. The planters also come with an animated butterfly or bee, you turn the animation on or off by touching them. You can also change the texture of the wood by touching that; light or dark versions.
75° F in Northern Norway feels like this. It’s been like this for three whole days! It’s nice though, I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts because the average summer temperature where I live is 53° F. Today I’m featuring the Raphael Shorts which is a new mainstore release by FKD Fashion for Men. It’s compatible with the Michael Tank and the Gabriel Button Shirt and you can colour match them as well. FKD items are fitted for Jake, Gianni and Slink bodies.
Yeah, it was most likely a woman… So I’m still down the shore (I recently learned that’s what they say in New Jersey when they’re at the beach). I guess having grown up on a small island in the North Atlantic Ocean has left its mark because I love it here; it’s peaceful and the sound of the ocean and the seagulls soothes the soul. Also, Carroll’s Hot Topless Oysters are simply the best in Second Life, just sayin’.
Memory is the best of all gardens. Therein, winter and summer, the seeds of their past lie dormant, ready to spring into instant bloom at any moment the mind wishes to bring them to life.
Some of the best memories are made in flip flops, yes? Enjoy what’s left of the summer, people! I’m wearing a new tattoo, called Memories, by CAROL G for Men Only Monthly (opens July 20th) and # 17 by ARCBACK, which is a pair of denim shorts, for this round of Man Cave (open now!).
Your lips were like a red and ruby chalice, Warmer than a summer night. The clouds were like an alabaster palace, Rising to a snowy height. Each star its own aurora borealis, Suddenly you held me tight. I could see the midnight sun.
