Dear Diary,

I have a new friend.  I don’t know who she is, she is very mysterious.  I think she is a Russian princess.  Mama is making her some fancy gowns.  She is like the princess and the pea story, she is fragile and spends most of her time in a satin lined train case all wrapped up in a blanket.  She doesn’t like getting dust in her hair or anything like that. 

I talk to her everyday until she comes out for a fitting or a meal.

2011-01-16 011 2011-01-16 012We have to talk through the train case, but that’s ok.  She tells me about fairy tales and wonderful magical stories about a moon. 

Sometimes I just lie on the train case and listen to the stories.

Dear Diary,

Mama fixed my hammock so it is up higher.  She took a picture for me.

2011-01-13 009 This is where I sleep at night. The big suitcase has all my stuff in it.  Mama says I have too much stuff.  I don’t think so. 

we are still in California where there is this awful dry an dusty wind called the Santa Ana winds.  We keep coughing.    It is like summer here and we see palm trees and green grass.  Papa says we could be back in the snow in a matter of days!

Dear Diary,

I climbed a tree in California!


I was up very high in the sky!

I feel good around trees.  I wonder why?

Later, I explored the area behind the truck stop.  I found some water.  I couldn’t go down to it, there was a fence to keep kids out.


Then I found a flower!  I have never seen a flower in January before!

DSC00625 Then I found another one!  This one was yellow.


I also found a really interesting cave,

DSC00626 DSC00630 DSC00628I wish mikko were here, we could go exploring.  I am not sure it would be a good idea for me to go in there alone.  Maybe there are monsters in there!  I got kinda scared thinking about that so I left.

DSC00635 I found a tire and a yellowy bush.

DSC00633I liked the tree best, so I went back to it and sat for a while and watched the trucks go by.  Can you see our truck behind the tree?

DSC00601 I loved it in the tree. 

DSC00594I feel at home in trees.  Maybe I should live in a treehouse?

Dear Diary,

Today we are in Arizona.  When we stopped for the day yesterday, I got to go out into the desert and see a cactus.

DSC00547it was really sharp with spines!

DSC00532The weather was really cool and nice.  I liked it and wondered if there were any rattlesnakes around.  Mikko would like that a lot.  Not me.

DSC00530I listened carefully for a rattling sound.  I didn’t hear any.

DSC00556ON the way back I saw a Border Patrol car.  I pretended I was on the run!  I wish Mikko was here, we could pretend to run in the desert!

DSC00557When we got back to the truck, Papa let me sit at the drivers wheel.  I bet Mikko would be so jealous if he saw this!

Dear Diary,

Did you know I live on a truck?  It’s ok I guess.  Sometimes I get bounced all over the place.  I like to watch out of the window and see different things.  I like dolls too.

DSC00496I got teased about my lobster socks.  I really like my lobster socks!

DSC00498It’s cold on the truck at night, so I wear them.

DSC00495I wear my scarf too.  It keeps my ears warm and my hair from getting too dusty.

Best of all I like to read books when it is time to go to bed.   I am learning all about dolls.

DSC00502DSC00503 DSC00504 DSC00506

Sometimes I wonder how come I look like some of these pictures.

DSC00507Sometimes I get called a living doll.  I wonder what that means.

My first entry

Dear diary,

Today we are in Texas and it is snowing a lot.  We cannot go anywhere yet.  we have to wait until tomorrow to travel to California.  I think today I will read a book and dream about snow fairies and how pretty their snowflake wings must be.
