Greetings, everybody! How are you all? Things around here have been quite all right! I am glad that we live on top of a small hill though! It’s been raining a lot around here, and there are some places that are flooded. Not exactly Mississippi level flooding, mind you, but still standing water! The place where my mom works had their parking lot flooded on the night when it was raining! We had quite the creek running through our backyard after it was all done!
The area where we live used to have marshes and swamps surrounding it. As more and more people moved out to the country, they filled in the swamps and the marshes to make more land that was suitable to house building. Unfortunately, that took away the land that the water used to soak into. So now we get overflow—and creeks running through the backyard. Upstream—and further up the road, one person had their entire side yard filled with water! It doesn’t bother Mom and her family too much, because all that gets washed out is grass, but she is sure that it probably irks the people who live upstream because it probably kills their trees!
Our newest friend here at our house is really not a part of my hug. Mom found her at Goodwill. She bought her for Tilia! Now she has a friend. It turned out that her name is Lindera. She is another Liv Doll. Tilia lent her some clothes, and they’ve been talking ever since. Tilia seems to enjoy having company! Mom says that they both think that she ought to invite a boy home! (Mom doesn’t think that’s going to happen, but don’t tell them that!) Neither of them seem to be too interested in being travel companions (Tilia was bought to be a travel doll, but it didn’t turn out!), so Caleb doesn’t have anything to worry about. Tilia doesn’t want to mess up her hair, and Lindy seems to be a little worried about getting too far away from Tilia at this point! I’ll post some more pictures later. Tilia likes to get dressed up and have her picture taken, and I would guess that Lindy would too. Sigh, sometimes, girls are so predictable!
Mom says that I have to go to bed now, so I’m going to go upstairs! I hope you all are having a great day! Talk to you later!
