The neighbor called yesterday to see if Morgan would like to come take care of Martha. Martha is 2 now and Morgan has been hired to be mom's helper. They wanted to pay her at first but we decided it was a good learning experience and said no need to pay. But the last three times Morgan has gone to help they've insisted on giving her a little babysitting money. She is thrilled!
When she got the call yesterday, even though she usually goes alone in no snow conditions, I watch her one way and the neighbor meets her in the yard, I decided to tag along. On went the snowshoes and off we went.It was actually raining ice and I didn't want her any where near the road so we went through the field between the properties. Now just to let you know she actually has a cute "girly" coat for school and outings. This old coat and snow pants have been around for a long time!I turned around and headed home. The ice was pricking my face and I didn't want to take the camera out very often. A very dreary walk with no birds in sight. On the way with Morgan we spotted this bag. I told her I would pick it up on the way home. It seemed to have a smiley face on it. But in reality it was no smiley face at all. But it must have been laughing at me because when I backed up after retrieving it from the bush, I forgot I had snowshoes on and down I went!Poor guineas.... I went out, closed the door and called it a day!
