My science teacher has sent home specimens. Frogs, perch, and a turtle. Katya has been fascinated by it all. She prefers her animals dead, you see. She would never touch a live frog, or fish, or turtle, but dead=safe, so we’ve been encouraging her to look at the specimens, tying in the correlation between the animal’s body parts and her own.
Today Katya and I examined the turtle, which she enjoyed. Afterwards I asked Katya to pose. She really, really tried,

I don’t use much makeup myself, and so have no idea if these would stain if called upon to remove anything pigmented, but they work quite well for dabbing apple-cider-vinegar on my face.

Sometimes, when Mum needs a break from six people needing her attention, she asks Daddy to take us out for the afternoon. This time it was to The Conservatory, or the “Mechanical Garden” as Chad calls it.
The plants were, as usual, beautiful.
Due to the snow, the place was practically deserted.

They had switched up some of the blown glass.
It was a nice time.
