Wandering through Target on the weekend I stumbled across these miniature gems! Aren't they wonderful? I've never seen camping gear displayed like this. Imagine being the person whose job it is to miniaturise all the tents into display form. I wanted to get one as a house for Purry but they only sell the big ones :( I was also very tempted to raid the toy isle and tuck a whole bunch of bears into the mini sleeping bags, but I restrained myself.
All is well here. It's clear and sunny again but the few days of rain we had have dome wonders for old San Antonio. The temperature has dropped to a simply delicious 35 degrees C and everything looks so greens. It's given a whole new lease of life to all the poor plants, as though they've been waiting for months to have one huge growth spurt, and now everything is just covered in green. I don't think I've ever seen such growth and so quickly!
(PS. Tiny Size! is a bit of an in joke but it's a brand of mexican gum - Kath and Andrew used to send it to Jo and I when they were in the states and "Tiny Size!" kind of entered our vernacular. Got to love bad translations!)
