Granny gave Mommy some furniture yesterday. Auntie R. and Uncle P. went with Mommy to Granny’s apartment, and brought it back for us in Uncle P.’s trailer and truck. Mommy says Auntie R. and Uncle P. are her heroes! Callie checked out the new bookcase while the wardrobe cabinet was getting polished in the living room.
The wardrobe has a side for hanging clothes, but Mommy wanted shelves. She bought some artist boards at the craft store, and built some.
This morning, we helped Mommy sort our big sister’s clothes, and put them away on the shelves. We couldn’t help with the drawers, because Mommy filled them with heavy stuff like stationary and staplers.
After the wardrobe was full, we moved on to the bookcase. The bottom shelf of the bookcase was for some of our Sasha sisters and brothers. Mommy put Ivy and Zachary at one end.
Minna, Caleb and Marceline were at the other end, but the bookcase was too dark to see Caleb well, so Elspeth took his place. Cora had the same problem in the middle of the bookcase, so Parker took her place.
In the middle, Sasha, Parker and Samantha are sharing the sofa. Mommy says Cora and Caleb can sit on top of the bookcase later when she organizes all our chairs. They are excited about that, and can’t wait!
Mommy is letting us use the top shelf of the bookcase for bit, because we don’t have our house yet. We put our beds in there to help keep dust off them…except, Chloe’s bed isn’t in there yet, because someone with four legs and orange fur, got dirty paw prints on her flowered bedspread, and Mommy is washing it. We won’t mention any names, but the four legged culprit is going to have a bath, too.
It is hard for Mommy to get good pictures of us in the bookcase once the doors are shut, because the light shines on the glass doors when she uses the camera. Still, we like our temporary home, and our sisters and brothers like that they have a place to sit all together, rather than being stuck all over the house in different places!
Bibichou is happy, too, because for now, she gets to sit on top of the bookcase in her chair!
We still don’t have a final choice made for Riley’s quilt, because these three quilt designs all came in even, in our survey! Thank you to everyone who voted in the comment sections. The survey results didn’t show the results properly (Mommy will have to figure out how to make a better survey next time!), so we tallied all the votes ourselves. Mommy says we still have time to figure it out because with all the new furniture this week, she still hasn’t had time to go into the storage closet for Riley’s bed. We don’t think Riley cares much at the moment. She loves sharing all our beds with us. She picks a different person and bed every night!
