If there’s one thing I may tell you, let it be: You are your home,
Your body is the only house that you will truly own,
Maybe its got some broken windows, and there are tear-stains on the floor,
Maybe you lock the things you wish you weren’t behind its many doors,
But there is wisdom on its bookshelves and a laugh to light the rooms,
There’s a vase upon the table where the love you’ve grown all blooms,
Dreams sit on the mantlepiece next to kindness and your trust,
Where you use them all so often they have no time to collect dust,

So please don’t look at mansions with that envy in your eyes,
There’s more that makes a home than its appearance or its size,
Your body is your shelter so you deserve to love it all,
Don’t let the world stand around outside and tell you how to paint your walls,
How lucky that you have somewhere to protect you from the night,
And if there are cracks left from the past?
Well, they just let in more light. ~ e.h.

I was playing around with filters in PicMonkey and happened upon this one and thought, “This is not bad.”  You can also flip the effect so that color would be on everything surrounding Cougar.  You can see which one I preferred.

Work continues on Lac des Cygnes.  I pulled up the original landscaping I had put down in the meadow and orchard and am in the process of finishing up the area around a farmhouse.  It’s tedious work as there are about 5 to 6 different layers of plants that make up the ground you walk upon.  Using lots of prim/land impact but the effect is not something I have seen in photos or my SL travels. A picture of the partially completed ground can be viewed here.  Yes, I went back and added more lol.  It’s been 3 months since I started this project and if memory serves me correctly, it took 4 months to complete Lost Horizon.  I’m not a very fast landscaper that’s for sure.

Have an excellent rest of the week.  We are on the downside now and the weekend is not far away.  Yay!  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
