Mud is very nice to feel
All squishy-squash between the toes!
I’d rather wade in wiggly mud
Than smell a yellow rose.
Nobody else but the rosebush knows
How nice mud feels
Between the toes.

While we are in transition, Miss Wigglyhead is submitting a guest post about how she spent her summer. Enjoy.
This summer, like most summers was full of sunshine and good times. I was lucky enough to spend this summer with my cousin Hanna, who was recovering from her time as a prisoner of the Trolls, and her therapy bear (and friend) Hector. Here are some pictures of our adventures.
The summer sunshine meant a good crop of strawberries. We all pitched in and harvested a lot of food. It may have been hard work, but we had a lot of fun as well.
Before too long, the tomatoes were ready and we headed back out to harvest enough food to see us through the winter.
In between the strawberry and tomato harvest, we spent time on the beach.
My cloth body means that I must avoid immersing myself in water, so I spent my time on the beach crocheting a sweater for Hanna. When the Trolls captured Hanna, they took all her clothing including her hat! As a result, we have been working hard to stitch a new wardrobe for her. I think this wee sweater will keep her warm this winter.
Hanna has a non-cloth body so she could spend some time splashing in the cool water.
It was so hot, Hector took off his scarf!
Summer means yard sales. Even when you are very small, there are big deals to be found. I was very lucky and found all kinds of good things.
As summer drew to a close, Hanna decided it was time to return to her family.
Good Luck Hanna and Hector! I will miss both of you. Don’t forget to write!
