December 2nd, 2016

Good afternoon, everybody! How are you? I’m all right. Things have been pretty quiet around here this week. Mom has been working her two jobs still, so there really hasn’t been much new around here. We have brought home a new AG friend though. Mom bought her as a reward for making it to a whole pay period at her new job.

Meet Mabel! She is an Melody doll. She loves music and bright clothing. She is Adelaide’s cousin.
More next week!

One thing about Mom’s new job is that she doesn’t have to work retail on Black Friday. She does have to work at the new job, but it will not be as annoying as the retail job!
Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends. This Thanksgiving was Graham’s first one. He really seemed to like all the new food. Oliver, on the other hand, was not impressed.

He said that he has had all the turkey one dog can eat and he wants to nap. He also said that he wishes that everyone would be quiet!
I hope everyone is having a great week!

Hello everybody! How are you? Things have been pretty subdued around here.
I have been going to Mom’s new job with her. I sit under her work table all day long! Boy, it’s nosy! She is working at an embroidery machine. She puts people’s names on their aprons, bible cases, totes, and baby bibs. Caleb, who has gone with her since the beginning, sits in the bag with me. We play on her ipad and phone and talk. It’s kind of crowded, but Mom needs the moral support! It’s kind of exciting too—it’s inside a factory! There are conveyer belts and everything.
This is what Mom’s embroidery machine looks like. She found a good picture of it on a Dutch website off all places. They were made in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They were made by a company called Barudan. Mom was looking for a history of Meistergram, but we’re not having much luck. There is a 135 article wiki on embroidery machines, which is really weird in it’s own right.
Thank you for listening to my talking. This is a really new experience for both me and Mom. She is worried about a lot of things, and I’m doing my best to help her. Researching things on the internet always helps!
Since an entry isn’t complete without a picture, here you have a new picture of Oliver!

Good afternoon, everybody! How are you all? I’m all right. Things are still pretty quiet around here. Mom is pretty tired from all her working. I want to go on an adventure, but she doesn’t have the energy. Maybe next week!

We have been having a very nice fall here in Wisconsin. It’s one of the reasons I want to go outside! Mom let me sit on her lap when she drove home today so I could see the scenery! I do love fall.
Do you have a favorite season? Mom likes summer because everything grows and there are flowers. I think I like fall because of all the reds and oranges and yellows. What do you think?

We’re getting closer to the election here in the US. I’m glad it’ll be over with soon. I hate the TV commercials and all the mailing ads!
Things have been pretty quiet around here. Mom started her new job a few days ago. She still is staying at the bookstore because she loves books so much. I’m not sure if I want to be away from her so much, but we’re going to take it a week at a time.
Graham is getting bigger and bigger. He is almost ten months old now. He will be one year old on the sixth of January.

He still hasn’t grown much hair yet! But he has four teeth, which I feel with regularity! He still likes chewing on my nose. Mom doesn’t let him do it for very long, since he could do damage now!
We did go for another walk. It was quite chilly, so we didn’t go far. We didn’t see any cool animals though. We did see an ox-eye daisy though! (Now I know that it’s an introduced plant!)

Have any of you gone anywhere interesting? Maybe Mom will take me for another walk soon!

So Mom found herself a different job. She works at the same place that her sister does, but in a different building. She is learning to operate a an embroidery machine. It is big, fancy, and possibly older that she is.
Last night, we forgot to write an entry. So it’s actually really the day of, and Mom is extra tired. So we’re going to post this and then write next week’s. I hope you’re all having a great day!

We have had a pretty quiet week around here. It’s been mostly filled with babysitting Graham and Mom’s work. Today Oliver, Graham, Mom, and I went for a walk!

Mom wanted to take a picture of the New England aster, but Oliver said that she ought to take a picture of him instead! (A while back, Mom found an app called iNaturalist. It’s sort of a catalog of all the natural things, allowing people to see where you can find cool things outside. Mom really only gets time outside when she goes for a walk, so we try to take a picture of something each time!)
I’m pretty tired, so I think I’m going to encourage Mom to go to bed.
