226 - New year's eve ball

Dim Sum wonders why that big ball hasn't fallen yet. Doesn't it know it was supposed to fall at midnight? No wonder the fireworks haven't started either!

One more before the new year ends, and barely in time!

225 - Poinsettia moose

"Hey, where did you get that poinsettia lei?"

Flickr changed their links, so I can't pin my images from this blog to Pinterest anymore. So I'm uploading twice now. Oh, well, no more links going back to Flickr.

In case I don't get a chance to post again this year, ...

224 - White wolf, white cat, white Christmas

If cats could giggle, Dim Sum would have giggled at the big scary wolf with the little Santa hat. Instead, she looks up at him adoringly for doing her this little favor.

I was very happy that he agreed to be in this Christmas photo, wearing a silly Santa hat. I simply told him that I already sent a copy of the Santa hat to Dim Sum and that I had to resize it smaller. I thought he would resize it larger, but this worked out well. The smaller size made the hat look daintier, which was a juxtaposition to his larger-than-life gruff and scary demeanor. :D

My original idea was to have him hold Dim Sum in one of his (large) hands, but his beast AO didn't have a ground sit, and I couldn't rez an object to position Dim Sum. So we had to make do. I moved Dim Sum farther away for better composition and to make his neck look less distorted.

Anyway, ... Happy Holidays!

223 - Westminster altar

Where's Dim Sum? #223 - Westminster altar

Dim Sum quietly pads through the darkened cathedral. She could almost hear the echo of her breath.

Real life exploded. In a very good way. Last month has been very lucky and very busy. First, we moved to a new (bigger) place, which became available after almost a year of waiting, so I had to pack, move, and clean the old place in the span of a week or so. We're still unpacking. Second, Thanksgiving happened (I was stuffed), and also my sister's 25th-wedding-anniversary-vow-renewal ceremony and reception. Third, I accepted a job offer and I started last week.

That said, I have to be very selective about what I do during my now-much-rarer free time. Dim Sum will continue until Day 365. However, that day could very well be a few years from now. ;)
