Great Aunt Doll Searches for Peace and Quiet
Great Aunt Doll and Hitty Jean are trying to clean up the Holiday Aftermath. Hitty Jean thinks it is time to take down the Christmas tree, though it is so lovely, she thinks it a bit of a pity. Great Aunt Doll can’t believe the mess. Paper everywhere, stockings and new toys strewn about…and it seems the littles have gotten into the tin of Quality Street candies. Sigh…So very much to do!
Hitty Kalyna is asked to help with changing the beds. But what Hitty Kalyna *really* wants is new bedding. “Please?” Great Aunt Doll considers this request as she sends Kalyna off to the linen closet. Perhaps sometime soon, but new bedding isn’t in today’s plan:
Great Aunt Doll goes to her sitting room, thinking she will find some Peace and Quiet there. What she finds is the setup for a concert the Hittys are planning. They have gone off to find some maracas. Great Aunt Doll thinks she will let them practice a little bit longer:
Finally! Bécassine is in the kitchen, preparing coffee. She pours one for Great Aunt Doll as well and they add just a *bit* of Baileys for good measure. Great Aunt Doll considers which of the Quality Streets is her favorite. The two friends share a moment of Peace and Quiet in the kitchen, reflecting on family, togetherness, and their hopes for the New Year:
Happy New Year to our Hitty Friends! We wish you all the best in 2018!
‘Til Next Time…
