I'm just having a bit of chamomile tea before bed. It's been an exciting weekend and I'm a little worn out. I got to go to an early Thanksgiving party! Yesterday, Wendy, Lenore and our newest resident, a boy named "Wolf", were all invited to an early Thanksgiving dinner at Reddiker Woodes. Ahma asked if I would go along, so there would be a responsible adult along, to watch over the kids. And of COURSE I said yes!
I've never been to Reddiker Woodes before, but Lenore goes at least once a month for "Movie Night" and says it's very fun. We arrived just a bit early, but I don't think unfashionably so.
I don't know much about Wolf. He's about Lenore's age, and I think he's seems like a very nice boy. Lenore said he hasn't been around the house for very long. But, to me, it seems they already fight and harass each other like siblings. It's very sweet.
The hostess of Reddiker Woodes had set up a place just for we dolls to hang out and socialize! Isn't that wonderful?
There were lots of other dolls around. Lots of new friends to talk to!
It was all so exciting, I admit that I found myself a bit distracted.
Maybe more than a little bit.
Because when I turned around to ask Lenore something I found that she was GONE!
Serenity, one of the residents of Reddiker Woodes, told me she thought they were probably headed upstairs. Which she said is bad. Because there are some rather dangerous dolls who live upstairs.
I asked her the quickest way after them, which she said was a handy thing called a "fairy door." That seemed very useful.
It was also incredibly jarring. What a strange way to travel. I do not think we need to install any of these at home.
By the time I got up there, he kids had met a green demon lady, who they said was very nice.
But they had also met a vampire, who was trying to offer Wolf an apple. Lenore was trying to stop him, saying she'd read somewhere that you shouldn't eat the food supernatural creatures offer you. EVER.
The vampire lady was trying to calm Lenore when I arrived. I told the kids to skeddadle so I could talk to the nice lady.
I explained to her, as politely as I could, that it was my fault the children had bothered her because I wasn't a very good baby sitter and that she really shouldn't eat them. She just laughed and said it was all a misunderstanding. Whatever it was, she did let the kids go, so that's good.
I'm not the type to raise my voice, but I let the kids know that they had almost gotten themselves eaten, and that I was very upset. They were very sorry, and on their very best behavior for the rest of the night (though I heard them quietly arguing over whose fault the whole thing was.)
I'm just glad they didn't get eaten by anything. They're both just so curious and fearless... well, it turned out okay and that's really the important thing.
Anyway, I'll try to have another update about things going on for you soon. First things first, I need to figure out what's going on with the cut flowers in my house. Really! They keep vanishing. It's weird.
Do you see that vase over there? The blue one? The EMPTY one?
It had flowers in it this morning, when I left to visit Miranda. And now they're gone!
And this has been going on for a while now. I just kept thinking that it was all in my head, but now I'm starting to wonder what's up. Maybe someone has adopted an invisible pet goat? If it could happen anywhere, it would be here. *laugh*
*yawn* Well, that's the last of my tea. It was yummy.
I'll do my dishes tomorrow morning. *yawn* Chamomile always makes me sleepy and it gives me nice dreams.
I hope you have nice dreams too! And I promise to tell you right away if it does turn out to be an invisible goat. Night night!
