About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Not a very good ninja.

So said Fourthborn, when I told her there was one parked next to Lorelai outside the apartment, and I was going to take a picture of it.

“If you can see it, then obviously it’s not a very good ninja.”

At the doll meet-up, I handed Fourthborn my camera and told her to knock herself out. I was happily knitting away on the birthday present for Bittiest, and disinclined to get up.

As with their owners, the dolls themselves embody Diversity with a capital D.

That little one with the blue feet? Mel-Mel-Chan did the face-up. It’s one of the Soom mini’s, approximately the same size as my Faith, or 28cm tall, maybe a little taller because of her feet. This one is a human/dragon hybrid. The little dragon horns are incredibly cute.

Your usual assortment of ghouls and hussies.

In the red, lounging gracefully against the wall, is Fourthborn’s FaithAnn, in a prototype of Fourthborn’s future wedding gown. I am guessing that the gown itself will be a more traditional white-to-cream. I’ll get back to you on that, as I will be sewing it in the next couple of years.

On the left is her Rosalie, representing LittleBit, complete with piercings and the 50’s-pillowcase birdies just below her collarbone. My two are nowhere in evidence. Camera-shy, or off filching somebody’s chips and salsa?

Honor went home with Mel-Mel-Chan to be restrung. Temperance is smirking on the sofa table, because she got to go yesterday, and Chutzpah did not. Sibling rivalry. Still not done with that, apparently.

I am now off to do battle with the wasp in my bathroom, so I can blow-dry my hair and look somewhat presentable for church.

All dolled up there.

Meantime, bug zappers. Look like cheap tennis rackets with wire strings, and you swing while pressing the button and zap! End of bug. Even if you couldn't see it going while it didn't see you coming.

(Got mine for $2.)

Glad you had fun, but please tell me that you realize that as adorable as they might be, they are *inanimate* objects, yes?!

Inanimate, absolutely, but still with their own quirky personalities.
