Seasons! With this you get two new outfit categories, Hot Weather and Cold Weather. Here's little Adam Pearson in his cold-weather gear: And here's Mommy: Eliza's Hot Weather outfit includes cool shades. Only issue is, Sims wear their outfit both indoors and out... which leads to this. Further proof that Emily is slowly ditching her upbringing... VEST TOP. SHORTS. SHORTS. THAT SHOW. KNEE. *faints* Jobs require daily tasks. You don't technically have to do them, but it helps. Emily's is to play chess. Adam's going to be a big brother! I love how Sims get a moodlet when they have good WooHoo Eliza loves composing tunes. Eating a healthy omelette. Playing in the sprinkler! For some reason, Sims stay in their normal clothes. In Sims 3, Sims changed into their swimwear. Adam is Cute #1: playing in the paddle pool! Adam is Cute #2: playing in the sprinkler! Yep, his Hot outfit is very similar to his normal outfit. Yet, if he wears the normal outfit, he risks getting a Hot moodlet. Meh. Festivals occur fairly regularly. There is no scheduled one during Summer, so I created one called Summer Festival. Traditions are Fireworks, Barbecue and Water Fun, so Eliza is fulfilling the Barbecue one. Adam is Cute #3: He just is! Personally I always like the Toddler stage. I think it's because he's wearing glasses, it just adds extra cute factor. More pool time. Eliza threw a party for the Summer Festival. She barbecues some potatoes. Seems that I like this shirt a little too much Edward is on the computer, Eliza is next to Eddie, and Mark is at the back. Elijah is the one in green. Reading Adam to sleep. The Spice Festival was being held in San Myshuno, so Nicole invited Eliza along. Sadly, it was raining. She bumped into Elijah. Behind her is the Spicy Curry Challenge, but she did not partake. It wasn't the best of trips, given that she was soaking wet, hungry and exhausted. I directed her to go to bed. But NOPE she autonomously stopped the action and... It's go time!! Eliza opts for a home birth this time around. And.... it's a BOY! This is Benjamin. Three guesses as to what the name theme will be...
A lot of people enjoy the variety of seasonal changes, especially when winter ends and spring begins, as well as the end of summer as the crisp air of autumn settles in. To hell with that! I want summer every single day! There is nothing as depressing as the days getting shorter, temperatures getting colder, trees and other natural wonders going dead. The end of summer also means school is starting back up and that only means loads of homework and other distractions from my having fun! I don't want to have to put on multiple layers just to open the front door! Maybe I need to move to the equator! Just sayin...
Here in West Texas, the seasons here are a bit different than in some other parts of the United States. Since we have had seven days in a row where the highs were 80F or less, I have declared that FallWinSpri has arrived. FallWinSpri is my favorite season. Where I live, FallWinSpri usually starts sometime between mid-October and November 1st, and usually ends sometime between the end of February and mid-March. As the name implies, FallWinSpri is my term for the seasons of Fall, Winter, and Spring. It is the portion of the year in West Texas where the majority of daytime highs are 80F or less. You might get a little snow and ice before it's over, but you should never bet on a white Christmas. When FallWinSpri ends, you transition into Almost Summer, followed by Summer, and then Still Summer. Anyhoo, Mr. Cartmann99 brought me something from the garden last week: He's a little on the puny side, but look at the beautiful greens on top! I stood there admiring the green carrot top and hating the idea of chopping that off for the compost pile. So, I Googled and found out that the tops are edible, and one way to eat them is to make pesto out of them. Mr. Cartmann99 thought this was funny because he has a thing for basil, we have an abundant supply in our backyard and here I am talking about making pesto out of carrot tops. Seriously, meet the section of the garden devoted to basil: If I stand behind the tallest plant next to the fence, the basil comes up to my waist. The two smaller plants on the left are lemon basil. You don't want to know how much basil pesto, basil salt, and dried basil Mr. Cartmann99 has made this year. So, I gave Mr. Carrot a nice bath, ate the carrot like a ravenous rabbit, and chopped off the greens. You only want the leaves, but the little stems the leaves are attached to are fine, just cut right below where the leaves begin and then follow your favorite pesto recipe. I prefer fettucine over linguini for pesto, so that's what I used for this. Since the tomato plants are still producing, I mixed them in with the hot pasta and put more Parmesan on top. He brought me another carrot and a French Breakfast radish later in the week, and I made more pesto from those leaves. I think a pesto of just the radish leaves would be too hot for me, but a small amount mixed in with the carrot leaves was quite nice.
