Gramma Camp Week 4.4

Easing into the day, we decided to make masks. We took the day off school, since it was Good Friday! They didn't work very well, as it wasn't the right size for kids, but it was fun.

Josephine mushed Nutmeggie. You can see her paw "making dough!" You cannot hear, but she was purring mightily. Nutmeggie, I mean. Well, maybe Jophee was purring, too!

Next, Jos videotaped Cinnamon! She used my camera, which is a bit awkward to use. She did well.

I thought Tiberius should get into the spirit.

They checked trailcams, brought in wood, and kept quite busy.
They played with the cat. Twice he rolled off the shelf, held on to the ladder by two arms, and once hit the ground, but he got back up.

Grampa went into our GP's office, where a healthcare worker stabbed him with his cancer treatment injection, in the parking lot, in the snow. (He's had a cough since November, and they have strict rules.)

After breakfast in the snow, on the front porch, Josephine was birding, identifying birds by their sound, as well as sight, wrapped in a blanket. It was peaceful.

The girls fetched the trailcam memory cards. The first section is the site in the day, with the wicked winds. Next, the coyote ate something. I think it was a frog. You can see it dangling.

Butch raccoon was there. There was a group of three. I hope it was our 4 release raccoons, who have stuck together all winter, with one off-camera. Taco, burrito, Mary Kate and Ashley.

Stay safe. Stay well.

I would have lived being out there with her, birding!

Looks like you had a better supply of material than I did to make masks. Mine had to be all white with an old sheet from the rag bag and a new T-shirt I got at a trade show back when I was working as a Tech Director for the school district. But they came out okay. One T-shirt gave me enough cloth for eight masks including the inside layer and an extra strip in the middle to make three layers over the nose and mouth. Finally all done with them today. - Margy

The girls are lovely!
Masks and gloves should have been distributed freely to the population, in my opinion.
