The chicks and ducklings are well. Despite growing rapidly, they are still content to remain in the wading pool. The largest one is Donald, the duck, who is timid and very mild. The smallest, Shy Guy, is doing well. There still seems to be something off about him, but I think he will survive.
The girls like to accompany me on walks. We go no less than 1/2 mile from home, and I’m astonished each time that I don’t have to carry anyone back up the hill. Susie enjoys being off-leash. She’s turned into a responsible dog in her old age, and I enjoy her steady company.
When we’re not outside, the girls are drawing with markers, playing with blocks, reading their books, or playing with their dolls. It’s just like we are at home. Whenever I need a moment to think, I turn on the television. Napping is still unattainable although I do sometimes manage to get one down.
As for me, well, I have started a new hobby which I will write about on Knit Me For a Loop.
