The Tea Party

I had a little tea party this afternoon at three.
'Twas very small,
three guests in all,
Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate up the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea.
'Twas also I who ate the pie,
And passed the cake to me.

Poem Author: Jessica Nelson North

The doll was hand made by me
from a pattern by Morrissey Dolls.
She is about eight inches tall.

Meeting Parker

Michael,  "come with us and you can meet him."

Nanny,  "Okay boys,  but this better not be a joke."

The boys assured her it was not a joke.

The boys led the way.

Tony,  "Nanny,  this is Parker."

Nanny,  "Stand back,  he could be dangerous."

Tony.  "No Nanny,  he is sweet.  See!"

Michael,  "Yes,  he loves us."

Tony,  "Master Harry says Parker is a FanDaC dragon.
That is why he loves sweets so much."

Nanny,  "Well Master Harry might be right. 
For now we need to get the doll's table back in 
Georgia's room before she misses it. 
Then we need to figure out what to do with the 
newest member of the Evergreen Youth Academy!"

A sweet tooth!!

 Nanny,  "My goodness girls.  Why are you yelling?
And what did you do to the kitchen?
How did these things get spilled?"

Tella,  "We didn't do this.  We found it this way."

Tella,   "We came in here and we saw-----" 

Nanny,   "I think I understand.  The boys must be behind this."

Cinnamon,   "No Nanny,  it was a-------------"

 Nanny,  "Please bring me the trash basket.
And girls,  please tell Tony and Michael that I need them in the kitchen."

 Cinnamon,  "But Nanny they didn't do it."

Nanny,  "Please tell them and I will deal with it."

 Nanny,  "Now boys,  what do you have to say about this mess?"

 Tony,   "Nanny,  we didn't do it.  I promise."

Nanny,  "Well you are going to help me clean it up."

Nanny,  "Thank you for helping.  
Now would you like to tell me what happened here?"

 Michael looked at Tony

 Tony looked at Michael

 Tony and Michael together said

"We think it was Parker.  
He has a sweet tooth."

Nanny,  "And just who is Parker??"

Cinnamon "I wonder where it came from"

Stealing vegetables??

Tony  "here is some lettuce"

Micheal  "do you think this will be enough?"

Tony  "with the rest of the veggies,  maybe it will be enough"

Michael  "I hope so.  He is awful big you know."

Tony  "there is no bottled water.  Do you think he will drink this?"

Michael   "I don't know.  Water might be better."

Nanny  "Just what are you two doing?"

Micheal    "Ah,  Um  we needed a snack"   

"A snack"  said Nanny.  ""Since when do you two eat vegetables for a snack?"

 Tony  "Well we couldn't find any cookies!"

Nanny  "So you were going to eat uncooked vegetables?"

Tony  "You said they were good and helped us grow"

Nanny  "Well I think these crackers would be better this time."

 Michael  "What are we going to do now?"

Tony,  "I don't know,  but we better think of something.  He is hungry."

This left me wondering even more

I overheard this conversation yesterday!

Tony  "Nanny,  is it true that God made all creatures?"

Nanny,  "Yes Tony,  that is very true."

Tony,  "So that means we need to take care of them,  no matter what?"

Nanny,  "Yes Tony I would say that is true."

Tony   "Okay thanks."

Nanny  "Tony,  tie your shoes before you go back outside."

I now have to wonder!!!!
Does this have anything to do with the movements in the woods???


Friday, August 26, 2016


A glimpse of a slight movement just at the edge of the woods.
Are the children playing out there?
Or are there animals moving through the grass.
A opossum was seen a while back
and a beautiful gray fox just last week.

Each morning as I fill the bird feeders I watch.
I wonder what  (or who) could be living in the woods.
Maybe over time we will find out.
