The Pigeon Meets a New Friend
I have a feeling that Safiya's memories of me are going to consist mostly of me hovering about taking pictures from odd angles...
That being said, this is a good snapshot of our typical morning table. Books, craft, crepes, cookies...I'd be lying if I said that I don't eat cookies for breakfast. (Someday I'll have to share why they get baked a mere four at a time in our house.) As for the bird, Safiya cut up the wool sweater scraps into tiny pieces to for stuffing, which she proceeded to execute with enthusiasm (not the bird, the stuffing of), after she figured out that making a stuffed animal was a lot like making beanbags (she's helped me with hundreds of those, what with the child labour laws routinely being ignored around here):
And after it was all done, the old pigeon finally met the new pigeon...
I think it looks a little stunned :-) They'll both be travelling with us wherever we go for a while, I'm sure...
