Sally Goes Exploring

It's a cold, snowy day here in Woodlee Junction. I got all the measurements I needed from Sally, and I've been busily sewing. But I think this left poor Sally a little bored, and so she went exploring.

Sally first found what appeared to be a construction site

Very carefully she found her way up to the window to take a peek in.

She thought it would be quite nice, whenever it was finished.

She wanted to go in, but since it was still under construction she thought the best of it and kept exploring elsewhere.

Next, she found herself in front of a little gray building.  She couldn't imagine what it had been used for.

Sally peeked through the window, but it was all dark inside and the glass was foggy and she couldn't see.

Sally wasn't the kind of doll who would normally just barge into a place, but knowing she was the only doll in all of Woodlee Junction right now, she felt it would be just silly to knock.

It was a pretty little place, but Sally wasn't sure what kind of business it would be. She thought the shelves were nice, though. 

Finding the little shop cozy and nice, Sally determined that it would be a lovely whatever it was someday.

There wasn't much else to do in an empty shop, no matter how cute it was, and so Sally wandered on.

 "Hmm...'C&M'," thought Sally. "I wonder what it could stand for?"

After a quick glance in the window...

... Sally found herself thinking (rather uncharitably) that it must stand for "Chaotic" and "Messy".

But she could see there were books, and she liked books, so she thought she might find one to take home and read.

It turned out, there were a LOT of books. Unfortunately, they were scattered everywhere. This place was a mess!

What started as Sally thinking she might sort through the mess and find a nice book to read...

 ... became sorting more and more books, and then became...

... getting all the books up off the floor...

...and finally turned into tidying up the whole place!

Well, the whole place excluding upstairs. Sally could see there would be work to do up there too, but maybe not today.

With all that sorting, Sally had found a book that sounded interesting, and tucking it up under her arm headed back to the house for a nice afternoon of reading and relaxing.

And now she had a project in mind for tomorrow!
