Roz and Cora checking in to say that there was a control burn over the week...

...and it sucked.

And why did it suck, exactly? Because everyone got sick from the smoke. Allergies kicked up, some had to go home from their jobs, some who lived near by the smoke evacuated immediately.

And I had to get sick, right in the middle of everything!

Oh, don't worry, it wasn't bad; just a sore throat. I'm better now except for the fact that my nose is a water-fall. Cora still has a little bit of a headache(from me dropping her on the floor on Wednesday) but she'd doing fine.

Someone that mom knows said that it was supposed to go on for three months. THREE MONTHS. But it looks like they're ending it right now, 'cause I don't smell any smoke.

And, boy did it smell bad!

Well, no wonder I can't smell anything now... my sinuses are plugged up.

Like I said to mom the other day, "If I sound stuffed up it's because the government is trying to kill me with their control burns."

It's funny because last year I didn't get sick. Well, at least I don't remember being sick last year. I just remember the smell.

Well, me and Coraline are gonna sign off and watch her movie. And do some drawing, too. I need her to get better so she can go golfing with her peeps. She might win a medal this time...!

Guess who came to visit? Miss Coraline Jones, the bendy doll!

I got her off of eBay. There were only four of these(there were other dolls like her but in different clothing) so I got the raincoat version. Her clothes are removable, too, so that way I can dress her in my - ahem - Polly Pocket clothes.

Coraline reading her book...

Coraline reading the back of the Coraline DVD...

Cora and the peeps playing miniature golf...

I love her so much. I take her every where with me and she totes around in my black Emily the Strange purse. Takai loves her too. Right now she sitting next to Cora, telling her a little about her life adventures. Mom knitted her a small skirt, blue and black stripes running across it.

Oh, and by the way, sorry I haven't been blogging that much. I've been kind of spacy, because we're moving to a neighborhood a street over from us, and everything has been really confusing. But now we're moving in and trying to pack everything, and since all that is going on, I'm trying to avoid painting because I don't want to get any more stuff so that I can't pack anything else.

But I WILL paint some more once we move.

And do lots and lots of blogging.

Because we've got a new back yard that if you go beyond this little mountain with dozens of rocks, there's a FANTASTIC view of Prescott! I was eyeing every corner with envy when I saw it; and I thought, "This is great blog material!"

So anyway, I'm going to get on with my life and draw a little - drawing some of the characters from Coraline is what I'm doing right now. Me and Cora say bye and that we'll both be blogging soon!

But... a little nap first...
