yesterday i asked prairie to empty the washing machine into the basket and put the basket out by the line then i would hang it out. she was ages and when she came back in i said, jokingly, had she hung it out. no she replied, i was talking to the guineas. i believed her until i went out a bit later! i stood there and laughed and laughed. creativity at the line and note, that she even managed to match the pegs (one of those things that if i ever wrote 7 weird things about me that would be one of them - peg matching) she thought i was laughing at her and when i ran back in for the camera she begged me not to blog it but how could i not. its so sweet and i think i have convinced her that she touched my heart with her spontaneous act!
speaking of guineas - this is our new boy. we were out at my brothers a while ago and this little guy was 4 weeks old. such a little looker i just had to take him home. michael paled somewhat when we went to leave, at the sight of the cat cage loaded with hay. he is randy and earls little bro. i wanted to call him ringo star with that fine marking but he is the crabman.
