Hello, my dearest readers. I know things have been rather quiet on my end for a while, but to be honest, not much has happened since the last time I wrote.
We're slowly getting settled in our new little home, although we've been having trouble finding just the right furniture for it. Beast'sbelle says she's been keeping an eye out at the thrift stores in town, but nothing has caught her eye yet.
We're still hoping to find some more comfortable seating and a shelf to replace the rather large dresser in the middle of the room.
On the plus side, Beast'sbelle was able to find several toys for Emilie's side of the room. Ironically, Emilie's very favorite is the "Beauty and the Beast" themed dollhouse and dolls that Beast'sbelle found her. It's similar to a "Polly Pocket" playset which apparently was popular with you humans back in the 80s and 90s, long before I was around. It certainly makes a perfect dollhouse for our girl. :) She's spent hours playing with it.
She's also enjoyed carrying her Beast and Belle dolls all around with her. She told me that the Belle doll reminded her of me. Gracious, I hope my face paint is a bit better than that. Thankfully, she hasn't told Robby that the Beast reminds her of him. ;)
I took a moment to admire her dollhouse one day and I must admit that it is amazingly detailed. I can see why she likes it so much.
Best of all, when playtime is done, she can close it all up so it takes up less space. It's still so odd seeing a picture of "me" on the lid. ;)
And as you can see from the picture above, Beast'sbelle had a few other little trinkets to fill Emilie's shelves. I think Beast'sbelle has been having as much fun finding toys as Emilie has had playing with them. ;)
We had another horrendous heatwave last week. It was so bad that Beast'sbelle and her girls left the house and stayed with her mother and father, who have something called "central air". I was so grateful that we'd been moved away from the full heat of the window. Even so, it was still miserable. The temperatures have cooled down considerably this week, but Robby is still recovering from the effects of the extreme weather. Ben has prescribed lots of fluids and lots of rest. Now that Robby's starting to feel better, he's getting pretty restless. I'll just be glad when the worst of the summer heat is over and our lives can be somewhat normal again.
There's not much more to tell at this point. We're slowly waiting for furniture, slowly waiting for Robby to recover...slowly waiting for anything exciting to happen. Just thought you'd like to know I was still alive and all. ;)
Until next time, dear readers. :)
