#28daysofwowlove - Day 16

The Power of  Love.
Or is it the drive to fill in the blank spots in our achievement panel? I tried to get this done for some guild mates yesterday, only to hit a snag with raid schedules and Valentine's Day plans. Geez, guys, priorities. I was here to do an achievement, real holiday be damned.

Seriously, though, we did get three people their achievement yesterday before people had to leave to do things, and had I been told there was dinner and a date waiting for me, I would have bailed on my game schedule, too! Time was getting shorter, and this achievement is a bear! We decided to group again today at 6 server to give it another go. Thank goodness for the custom raid finder! There were 2 groups going, one at max and one that was taking people in and letting them go as fast as they could. We grabbed our 8 people and everyone got their toy and achievements.

Give the Lich some Love, too!
What's Love Got To Do With It?
At least I got a couple new toys this holiday season. One more try for the rocket across my gals and I will again join the ranks of those who still don't have a hot pink mechanical mount. Love is In The Air, but the wind is coming!

#28daysofwowlove - Day 15

On the downward slope of this hill, but it feels more like I have come from the peak and hit a valley, and I am just starting to climb. It is so easy to post when things are going well. Life is getting complicated again, and the post ideas just won't come. Here is the idea for today, taken from the newest development in my house.

Yeselda

Anyone who is a battle tag friend knows I have a serious problem ,and it is that I have many priests. When I was looking for a home after KNR faded away, I rolled priests of all shapes and sizes and factions all over the Worlds of Warcraft. This one, however, is not of my making. This is my eldest daughter's shadow priest, Yeselda. She lives on a PvP server with a tauren priest I rarely play because of the nature of the server.

IRL, my house and life are not unlike the old woman in the shoe. Small house, many children, not enough room, and it seems like I am always "spanking them soundly and sending them to bed". Well, the one that finally got away is coming back, temporarily. If my house doesn't bust out at the seams, it will be a miracle.

Love that my daughter enjoys this game, too.

Fan Art!
The Hearthstone Facebook people shared Naekole's Hearthstone Valentines with us today, and I just love them! Go look at the rest of them, now!

So small.
I love how this game puffs  you up, makes you feel like you are the savior of everything, and then reminds you how very small you are. It's good to have both.

Wind.
I love the ambient sounds in the game. Here, the hurricane is best when the music is off. Here is a great video from Xfire user Dk69 with the music. You can still hear the force of the hurricane as he closes in, and he gets some great shots all around it. I wanted to embed it, but it isn't on YouTube, so Blogger won't let me.  Please, click on the link, put on your headphones, put it on fullscreen and enjoy.
