I awoke early yesterday and spent much of the morning working on the journal for Expedition #9. I made the jump to Second Life and spent some time at the house reading Second Style magazine and had forgotten what a unique and enjoyable experience the magazine is. It also reminded me of how I need to work on my wardrove, especially my jewelry. So I fluttered about shopping and completed my amethyst and topaz jewelry ensembles. I also made a resolution to change my jewelry to match my outfits more often.
In the afternoon, I went to the grand opening of the New England sim and spent a lot of time considering the possiblities for a bustling community there. I believe the sim can take it’s places among some of my favorite complete communities including Mill Pond, Nantucket and others. The concert stage is truly superior and should be a good venue for live entertainment. The rents may be a bit high, especially relative to associated prims, but I’m very spoiled because I have hundreds of prims available at my own home.
After exploring New England Township, I headed over to Kimala & BidD’s Rez Day party. They have an easygoing, beach-style home on a sandy tropical island, and we danced and carried on while DJ Crighton spun his tunes. I think they had maye thirty people there including Gal & Lou, but I didn’t know many people, but came because I wanted to get to know Kimala and BigD better. BigD and I met at Diamond’s and have a mutual interest in writing and reading blogs.

I left SL around 4pm and had dinner, but something I ate upset my stomach. I didn’t return until late in the evening when I resumed my jewelry shopping and chatted with Sheridan. Sheri and I need to spend some quality time catching up soon.
