How Ailís Spent Her Snowday

Writing the Great American Novel 1/8
This past week we had a snow day and Ailís decided to use it to write a novel. Like Kimi, she'd been reading a gothic romance and decided she should write one.

Maybe Writers' Block 2/8
She decided to use her grandmother's old fashioned typewriter. It just seemed more fitting. With her iPod playing, a plate of cookies and some water she was ready to go!

Hard at Work? 3/8
Hmmmm... Yes, ready to go. (notice the page is still blank!)

Maybe a Snack Will Help 4/8
Maybe eating one of the cookies will inspire the beginning of this great novel.

Or Feeding the Fish? 5/8
"Did I remember to feed the fish today?"

Maybe Reading a Book 6/8
Maybe reading a bit would help. Don't all great novelists read a lot?

Hmmm...  Perhaps a Nap 7/8
Feeling a little sleepy, that bed looks awfully comfy.

ZZZZZzzzzz.... 8/8
Zzzzzzzzz... (I guess the great American novel can wait another day.)

Kimiko has her pensive side.

Snow Day
On cold winter days she likes to sit in the bay window and daydream. Reading gothic romances inspired her to select a black dress and velvet cape to wear today.

Outside it's snowing and a little windy, but in Kimi's mind the winds are howling over the moors.

The winds would be whipping the rain in all directions, but she would not be afraid to go out into the storm. She would pull up her hood against the cold.

No one would stop her from doing whatever she wanted to do. Being a girl would not have any restraints.

Hmmmm... Women didn't have a very good life in those novels. Kimi'd rather live in modern times.

Oh well. It's fun to daydream...

It's Snowing!!!

Hurry!  Quick!  Lookie!
Penny and Lily looked out the window and discovered it was snowing. Immediately Penny started yelling for big sister Valentine to come quick.

Please! Please! Please!
Poor Valentine was getting a headache from all the pestering by Penny begging to go out in the snow. We will have to wait and see what happens next.

The Tiny BJD Family

Tiny Family

I took a photo of all my tinies. They are each from a different company and are quite a variety of sizes and shapes. In the back from left to right: Planetdoll Riz, Elfdoll Winkie, Pukipuki Pongpong, Lati Yellow Lami. In the front on the left is a baby Hujoo (in ABS, not resin) and Orientdoll White Chocolate Vampire So.

Say "Cheese?"

Valentine wanted to try her hand at photography, but Penny was not cooperating!
