I’m looking out from my study window this morning at a landscape kissed with an all-encompassing frost. Winter has suddenly arrived.
Usually, winter only really arrives after Christmas, in January and February, and it’s slightly worrying that it’s making an appearance in mid-November. I’m going to predict that there will be days, over the next 2-3 months, where I’m stuck at home, with roads blocked and schools closed. I just have that feeling…
In that case, it will be a case of battening down the hatches, turning the heat on and logging into SL, or checking out the websites of some lovely naturist locations and imagining the sun on my back once more.
I was up early, and my own back garden had a lovely blue tinge over the frost as night slipped away into dawn.
Nothing quite as splendidly Christmasy as the sim I visited to take some photos, and throw on a lovely warm coat I’ve never worn before, the ‘Vampire Hunter Alison’ coat you’ll find that came as standard in your inventory.
I’m not feeling Christmasy yet -it’s far too early regardless of what the shops say- but I am feeling wintry, and I have to say that it’s a period in the SL which, like autumn, makes for some fantastically atmospheric photographs. It’s also a period when you’ll find me dressed in SL.
Of course, there are some RL & SL naturist possibilities, as we can jet off to some sun-kissed beach in an instant in both spheres, and even at home there are hardy folk who will embrace naked ‘Polar Bare’ swims. Some RL swimming groups near where I live swim (textile) all the year round. Brrrr! Far too cold for me to try out, even in a wetsuit.
