That Time Of Year

No I don’t mean Christmas, though it is that time of year as well. I mean cold and flu season. That’s right it is here, tissues and cold pills, thermometers and blankets, ice packs and heating pads for everyone!

I’m not sick, at least not yet. It is inevitable that I will end up catching something. The idea for this hit me this afternoon when I saw Sari-Sari’s Am Sick gacha at this month’s round of The Arcade. Sadly my Portia is a bit under the weather and that combined with the gacha made me go in this direction. For the two of us living in locations where winter is a legitimately cold season being sick is just part of the deal. Combine that with having small children and you have an even better recipe for the unavoidable.

I have never been a fan of the cold personally. I’m not as physically built for the freezing winds and loads of snow. During this time of year you’ll regularly find me hiding indoors or if I’m out I am bundled up. I used to say I would move to a warm weather climate to avoid more years of winter and yet today that’s a different story. Plans changed when I met this lovely lady of mine, and she’s worth the future Winters I will have to endure.

We’re about a third of the way through this round of The Arcade now. I’m sure many of you have probably stopped there and played your machines of choice. Many more have most likely gone to the various yardsales across the grid to try and find that one piece to complete a set. I highly suggest taking a second look too, as I myself overlooked the Sari-Sari machine the first time around. There’s always something that gets missed when you plan out costs and wants vs needs.

I added in some wonderful creations from Remarkable Oblivion’s Home for The Holidays set and the Intrigue Co. Plushie Pals: Northern Neighbors set to finish off the shot above. There’s more to come from us from The Arcade because between Portia and I we hit -A LOT- of machines. Once she’s feeling better and there’s time of course. Stay warm until next time, and if you’re not in a cold weather climate, I’m jealous of you.
