Accepting the Loss of Winter Boots

has been included in the winter 2006 issue Crescent Moon Journal since I co-judged their Winter Contest. This is a beaut of a journal -- elegant layout and warm winter colors. A lot of Blueliners here, too now that I look at it.

Some Reasons Why I'm in Such a Good Mood:

Went to my favorite Sims supermarket last night at mod the sims 2 and came home loaded with groceries. Now we have fish to fry:

Steak to grill:

And wheeeeee!! A pie for dessert:

Life just gets better and better... for my Sims, that is.

One of the unfortunate joys of having a Mac is that the Sims just don't seem all that compatible. :(

Congrats on the publications!

Thanks, Fey!!

Not compatible? Maybe it's a Sim thing, not just a Mac problem. I'm sort of having a hard time getting them to have three lightnings for each other (and I even downloaded the horoscope compatibility chart to play Cupid, but they *do* have mind of their own, I think and just keep wanting to woohoo with everyone but their partners). Hee.
