This is my girl constructing stories for me while I work. She has an extensive collection of playmobile (from pirates to fairies to Noahs Ark...) and comes up with the most entertaining stories. I should record her. Right now she's saving the penguins and rabbits from the wicked sasquatch (today he's bad). When I'm done with this were going to make some miniature food from polymer clay. I made a few things at 1/12 scale some months ago and they came out looking rather piddly and unconvincing. My sis brought some mini food at 1/6 scale and they are easier to see and play with. I think we will make some more cakes.
We are getting a puppy and a baby bird this weekend. I've been really nervous trying to get everything ready ( more for the puppy than the bird) so i've been extra weird. I've never had a dog before and am expecting chaos. I've watched all the reruns of the Dog Whisperer I could find and I think I understand dog logic. It put me in mind of wolves, all this business about pack leaders and who's top dog. That should be easy. I like being a leader, sometimes. I liked the idea of her watching out for Azalea. The dog we've chosen is called a Shiba Inu, a Japanese breed that looks like a fox. The bird is a Lineolated Parrakeet, known for being one of the friendliest birds. It will be nice to have this new energy in the house. Well we are ready to make little cupcakes and then back to puppy proofing!
