HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017

Sunbeam took some TIME off from blogging in the year 2016.  A lot of TIME off! A whole year of TIME off ! NOW she’s ready to start anew. 2016 was so full of lots of fun in OpenSim: special projects, special builds, HG VISIONZ magazine, many changes and much more she was involved with there just wasn’t any TIME left for blogging.

Anything and everything under the ‘Sun’ is fair game.  We decided to revamp the way we do our blog for 2017.  Instead of 50+ images showing her travels and friends and what she’s was up to in the OpenSim Metaverse each month, we choose NOW a simpler life, a simpler blog focusing on one subject at a TIME.    We may blog on thoughts, on a word (or two or three), on an OS destination, on an OS event, on a friend, or an enemy, or a spirit.  The main objective is to K.I.S.S. my blog (Keep it Short and Simple).

TIME is the word for today’s blog.

TIME: noun> “the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole”.

TIME: verb> “plan, schedule, or arrange when (something) should happen or be done”.

TIME is that one thing one never has enough to do all they want to do.  We must use the verb TIME to make the noun TIME fulfil our dreams and visionz.  As most everyone knows, the best laid plans of Fairies and humans often go awry.  Things often go wrong even though you have carefully planned what you are going to do. With that said our new 2017 mottos shall be: ‘Go with the Flow’ and have a ‘Devil may care’ attitude and with thoughts like those TIME will always be on my side! I’m gonna ‘live in the moment’!!!

In closing I’d like to say “Happy New Year! Have fun, enjoy life and may 2017 be your best year ever!” Step in Sunshine

Delightful December

December has so many facets; A) End-of-the-Year month      B) Winter Solstice month     C)  Christmas Day.  All Delightful! End-of-the-Year conjures up hope for a better tomorrow and an exciting future.  Winter Solstice brings sparkle and beauty to our world, all bright, white and positive.  And Christmas Day bringing family and friends closer oozing love and unselfishly sharing our hearts and humanity, true and giving. We believe the Magic of Giving indeed brings happiness to all.

Sunbeam was so busy in this month of December 2015 she took over 200 photographs: building her Happy Holidays area at AAcme City, GCG, attending various HG tours, attended OSCC, began Mentoring at GCG, going to fab Winter/Christmas parties including a Masquerade Ball, where Sun won 2nd Place in Theme Dress contest,  joining in on two ‘Treasure Hunts’ (Tangle HG Hunt and GCG Winter Hunt) and chillin’ with friends and family! Of course we didn’t post all 200, lol, but do hope you enjoy our Delightful December Slideshow below.  Enjoy !  Smiles!

YAY 2016 is here.  Happy New Year to ALL!  and after much reflection and thought about Metaverse Magic,  the virtual adventures Sunbeam has experienced over the last three years, we have decided its time for a change.  A change to our format for 2016.  After reading a post by Selby Evans on blogging “Keep it Simple” Google +, that is exactly what we intend to try and do.  Instead of cramming a whole month of her adventures into one post, we will do a Simple Post detailing one event or activity at a time.  Hopefully blogging a few time per month.  Smiles!

As always my valued friends, and soon to be friends, thank you for visiting my Metaverse Magic and Step in Sunshine!

April Fools’

Certain numbers were considered sacred, holy, or magical by the ancient Egyptians, particularly 2, 3, 4, 7, and their multiples and sums .  Can you name the only number that has the same number of characters as its value in the English language?  Here’s a hint: what month of the year hosts EARTH DAY?

The beginning of my favorite month! Why you ask? Well……

My parents were married on April Fool’s Day (1944) and me and Dude were married on April 4th (44 years yeah, wow) and then there is Easter which usually falls into the month of April but occasionally its been known to sneak in early at the end of March.  Such as the dates below:

22nd March 1818 – 30th March 1902 – 31st March 2002 – 31st March 2013  31st March 2024                 4-5-2015  Easter is coming…Happy Easter ♥ have a crackin’ Easter Everyone!

Moving on through my love of April, both my rl chidlren were born in the month of April (son born April 22nd , daughter born April 25th) and one of my most passionate causes EARTH DAY global observance April 22nd.

So you can understand why April is packed full of fun and celebrations for me.

Enjoy your own April ! and don’t forget April Showers bring May flowers!

90 Days of AAcme City

Feeling guilty for not keeping up my blog! I read many blogs and love how they know just what to say with style and wit! and then I vow to ‘Add New Post’ to my own but keep getting sidetracked (rl gird and now building 3rg).  Today I joined a new google+ group ‘Virtual World Bloggers’ and felt compelled to finally blog again!

Since most of my online time has been spent building building building on our two regions in 3rd Rock Grid, AAcme City and AAcme City Southside, I decided to post some of the photos I’ve taken as we been building.   Come see us anytime and if you want to have a home or shop for FREE @AAcme City contact me here, google+, Facebook or inworld.

WHAT HAPPENED?

Sunbeam wasn’t as active the last couple weeks at her Grid Hopping.  Plus, a technical disaster happened at WHAT virtual world and the founder decided it best to closed the grid completely after days of trying to repair the damage.  The best he could do was roll back to November 2012 and let the members know what happened.  He’s a stand up guy.  Many other grid have had ‘technical’ issues or closed  up without a word to their members.  I was proud to be part of the WHAT core crew.   We were right in the middle of making a new Welcome area and setting up Free parcels for new member when it happened.  It’s been a week now, we  miss WHAT,  but are certainly grateful for the time  spent there sharing space with the wonderful  new friends I met and my partners in crimes for a long time exploring and visiting virtual worlds of the metaverse.

Sunbeam was lucky enough to dance and laugh and  share good times with long time  her  friend Mikey McIntrye while he was spinning some of the best Blues on 3rd Rock . What a wonderful grand time reminiscing about our days together a couple years past when we planned parties on a region called Decades.  Those were the days my friend!   

When  Grid Hopping over to Metropolis to see Minethere Always’ new Steampunk project Sunbeam fell into the middle of a impromptu party.  She made a new friend,  saw a couple familiar faces and had a fun time.  The Euro feel of this grid and friendly members makes it a fun hop.  Sunbeam is now working on a Steampunk Gazebo for Miney’s next Free Theme OAR to be given away free to anyone that asks.  We’ll share pictures of that build next post.

A brand new world … brand new! Tundra 3D

Sunbeams’ friend form Island Oasis, Isis Ophelia invited her to come see a brand new virtual world she had just joined.  It’s called Tundra 3D and is based out of Italy.  Everyone was very welcoming and Isis offered Sun a couple parcels to set up shop at ID Designs.  Love a new start and fresh beginning.  Its like the first few weeks of an intense romance.  Smile.
