Yesterday, we drove to Waterloo to visit with Auntie S. and Uncle S.. It was Auntie’s birthday last week, so we took her gift with us. We bought her tiny food and other things for her dollhouse, like a mini vacuum.
We all arranged to meet at a restaurant for lunch. We got there first so Michael and I did a little exploring around the restaurant parking lot. Autumn is almost over here, so we enjoyed seeing the last leaves and blossoms on the trees.
We climbed some trees to get a better look at the faded blossoms and leaves. I just love the shapes of these blossoms and leaf clusters. Michael just liked climbing.
After awhile, we decided to take a break from exploring, and just chat about what we wanted to eat for lunch? Can you guess what we had? Chicken, of course!
After lunch, we went to a small bookstore in downtown Waterloo. When the bookstore moved into the storefront, they found a hidden closet in the building. With the help of some book lovers, they turned it into a reading nook for kids. We found an interesting book on owls to read while Mommy, Auntie and Uncle browsed around the store.
Mommy bought a calendar for 2022. With Covid restrictions and supply issues, she has been looking for next year’s calendar, without success, for quite some time, so she is excited to have found one she likes. We like it, too, because the artwork on it is peaceful looking.
After the bookstore, Uncle went to read in the library and we went with Mommy and Auntie to visit the fabric store. On the way, we passed through the mall to use the washrooms, and visited Paris for a bit…hee, hee, hee.
Mommy did not buy much at the fabric store, but she did find this Christmas fabric to make some dresses for our Sasha sisters. I think it is pretty.
Speaking of Sashas, we have a new Sasha sister. Here she is with Hamish and Dennis. She is a wobbler, who is almost like a toddler, except she walks a little wobbly! Her name is Gypsy Kat, and she came all the way from Ireland. She used to live with a lovely lady named Kathleen, who rerooted her hair, and fixed her arms and legs. Dennis is smitten with her, but Hamish has fallen in love with her dolly for some reason!
While Dennis was showing Gypsy Kat around her new home, Hamish even stole the dolly! He keeps hiding it so she can not have it back – naughty baby!
Auntie S. had brought Mommy a sweet lamb when we met in Waterloo yesterday, so Mommy said Gypsy Kat could have the lamb to make up for Hamish stealing her dolly. The only thing is, the Lamby doesn’t fit in her doll stroller…
But it doesn’t matter, really. Gypsy Kat seems quite happy to carry Lamby around everywhere in her arms.
