Evie’s body is now in Los Angeles, in customs. So the route was over the Pacific. I hope the “retention” in customs is temporary. I have never ordered from another country directly before, so I am unsure of the process.
Husband asked what name I had decided on, so I went ahead and told him what is going on with Evie and the transference that may happen and he surprised me by actually being interested and not thinking it was weird. Before I even mentioned the one and only thing to him, he asked if that would mean Evie really could go to Hawaii if she were smaller. Wow, I didn’t expect that from him! I thought I would have to explain it out in detail and watch him look confused. But nope….he went on about the machine that could accomplish this. He thought we should build a transference-time machine. It was fun talking about all the components it would need.
Mom said that there was a big box at the house, so that must be her trunk. I think when I get home, I will restack some of the unpacked boxes in the bedroom to the other side of the room and set up a table by my side of the bed with Evie’s room placed on it.
I’ve got a list going about all the things I need to get done while on this hometime, mostly preparing the remaining dolls for adoption, packing them up and so on. I also want to see if any of Evie’s grownup clothes can be refitted to little Evie. I have a pair of jeans I can cut up to make jumper style jeans for her younger form and a few pairs of summer shorts too. I plan on cutting out a few summer dresses that I can hand finish on the truck. I am so excited, the whole concept seems to be flowing in the right direction.
Another thought I had last night was how Miette and Charlotte will fulfill my need for Victorian life, how lovely that will be to make them dainty things now and then without any pressure to get it all done now. Both have comfortable rooms and lovely things and not in desperate need for anything. That leaves Evie free to be herself in the modern world, without my attempts to dress her in old fashioned clothing. I see so many Seola’s dressed in old fashioned styles, and while it suit her pensive countenance, I think she will be happiest with being comfortable for traveling and playing. I will work on a more play oriented wardrobe for her. I still find it amusing that I already have just about everything I can perceive of her needing. From toys to clothes to furniture, I have it all.
My last decision will be about Audrey and Hammie. I cannot make that decision yet, I am not ready. It will come one day on it’s own. I am in no hurry. At this moment, I cannot imagine letting them go, but I want this to see how Evie settles in and how it makes me feel before I can take the next step.
I did have a dream last night about opening the door of the house we were living in and seeing all these beautiful stars and lights swirling around us in the night, it was so magical and beautiful and I called my husband to come and look at it. I had a wonderful sense of peace, like we would soon take a new journey out there amoung the stars and light and that all I had to do is go and get my doll, in the dream it was just one and so easy to pickup and go. I couldn’t see the face of the doll, but it was the one I loved the most.
