house rebuilding

5

I’m starting with a new building series on my YouTube channel. Baisically, in this series I will be rebuilding every single lot in the Granite Falls. My aim is to have prices similar to the original ones. I started with the smallest and cheapest one - Granite Falls Campground.

The Campground is available for download on my Gallery (HeyNekoMei or #simswithmei).

I have never been sorted into Hufflepuff. I’ve always been sorted Ravenclaw and just in the past few months due to some major life changes, I’ve started recognizing that I’m becoming more of a Slytherclaw.

But THIS. I have never identified with Hufflepuff more. And I have NEVER read a more beautifully, powerfully worded description of Hufflepuff.

My best friend in the whole world is a Hufflepuff and this passage made me start crying because it all of a sudden put into words why I feel so fortunate to have her as my best friend.

Anyone who can’t put their finger on a definition of Helga Hufflepuff’s legacy…this is it. This is everything you need to know.

Fred-N-Barbs Revised by fredbrenny (The Sims 3)

It has a big live-in kitchen as they both love to cook or burn things. Thy have kept their original beds, but moved them upstairs where they each have their own big bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The garage and shed are still unfurnished. Might be used as a hobby shed, a guest house or just as a laundry room. Freddie wants to turn it into a bed and breakfast, but Barb would really like to think about it some more.

Creator Notes
The original house was used to rebuild this lot. It is called Brenn Haven and was submitted in August 2009. Conveniently placed in Sunset Valley, the only place to go back in the day. Of course there was Riverview too, the only (free) Store World available then.

Am I the only person who actually enjoyed this episode of Sherlock?

It showed Sherlock, John and Mycroft’s characters so much. It revealed the reason why Mycroft is so protective of Sherlock and that actually he’s not that emotionall strong. It revealed why Sherlock is the way that he is, constantly needing to solve puzzles, to save people. It showed John as the strongest, mentally. It showed Sherlock’s emotions towards his brother and John and it showed Mycrofts emotions towards his little brother. Mycroft was about to die because he knew Sherlock would not be able to kill John Watson. HE WAS GOING TO SACRIFICE HIMSELF SO JOHN WATSON COULD STAY ALIVE. The end montage of them rebuilding the house, John obviously moving back in with Sherlock and them looking after Rosie, all well solving crimes was brilliantly done. And Eurus’ character was brilliant! Also, how could you not love the episode after Moriarty’s entrance?!

I didn’t need to spend three hours downloading new mods and tweaking her, but I did. And now she’s here. And I love her. Serqet Ra, first of the Ra Legacy, aspiring cook and serial romantic. 

Quick Update

Sorry everyone. My plans for my days off went fubar due to RL stuff. Nothing bad, just errands and working around the house & helping rebuild a fence etc. So I haven’t had time to even turn on the laptop until today. I am hoping to get some mental focus & write something today, but I am in one of those creative moods where I’m looking at all the amazing 2K Giveaway prompts and going “I want to write them ALL OMG….too many ideas….focus focus focus….damn, it’s been hours of ideas & no words….”. 

Speaking of 2K giveaway, I have prompts from all the winners except for @stilesbansheequeen and @derekslaura now in, so I’ll probably post a summary in a bit so I can keep track of prompts and have a summary all together. I’ll add prompts for the before mentioned two winners when I receive them. I totally understand crazy RL and school nonsense, so no hurries for those, you two!

I’m off another two days, which means I am going to really try to focus & get some words banged out before work starts again. I have to work Tues-Sat this coming week, which means my usual weekend writing time isn’t going to be as abundant, and Shipping With Stiles week starts April 1, which I am totally going to write for! Speaking of SWS, I seriously request that any of you into a variety of Stiles ships with time & energy that might want to help that blog by posting fic recs or answering Asks, reach out to @cobrilee so that she has some help! I love the idea of the blog, especially with a chance to bring attention to some rare pair authors who deserve a lot of praise, but she can’t do it on her own.

Hope everyone is doing well! Feel free to poke me & cheer my muse on as I attempt to get the words out of my head and onto paper this weekend! 

Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.
