Mommy invited Auntie R. to go to Ikea with us to check out cabinets for the new house she is going to make us. We picked Auntie up at her house around ten in the morning, because we all wanted to get to Ikea early enough that we could stay for lunch, too. We took our seatbelt off while we waited for Auntie to come out of her house, but she fooled us. We thought she would take a long time to come out, but she was at the car door lickety-split. We felt silly then for undoing our seatbelt, because we just had to do it back up right away.
It was fun to look at some of the bookshelves on display. Mommy took our picture next to some artwork on this shelf. Auntie was snooping around looking at all the lamps and things like that. She said she had come to buy lots of small things, so we figure that was why she was looking at so much of the stuff that wasn’t furniture.
We really liked these pretty bookshelves, but Mommy said the shelves were too narrow for our house, and besides, she wants us to have glass doors so we don’t have to be cleaning our rooms all the time.
On the way to where the cabinets we wanted to look at were, we saw these cool cabinets with lots of drawers. Mommy says she would like one of the tall ones for all her sewing supplies like thread and trimmings. We liked the grey ones, but Mommy liked the whites one. She said they were “brighter.”
Finally, after looking around for quite awhile, we found the cabinet Mommy had seen online for our house. It comes in two colours, but we like the white one best, because we can see better in it. Can you see us on the shelf? We were trying to hide, but it didn’t work very well!
The floors in this cabinet are extra wide so all our furniture will fit easily, and there are lots of shelves so we can all have a room of our own, if we want. We wanted to order the cabinet right away, but Mommy says we have to wait another month until she has time to clear space for where it will go in our living room.
It is hard to wait, but I guess Mommy is pretty busy. She is still making Auntie E.’s rug, and the wedding gift cross stitch, too. In the meantime, Auntie E. sent us some photographs of our cousin who lives in France with her.
Here is our cousin in her new swimsuit. We love the pretty green crochet thread Auntie E. used to make it.
And, here is our cousin, in her new sunsuit, relaxing in the sand at the beach. Isn’t it a beautiful colour? We hope the stores will start getting new stock soon, now that they are open. We all want some new summery outfits, but there is only grey, white and black yarns in the stores where we live, right now!
