Yesterday, i was called in to work an extra day. I always squirm a bit. And give Fabiola a hard time, that i don't really want to come in. But she is the best employer i ever had. And really i should be way more grateful. Because i get to look after her 'fairies' . No elves around yesterday.
And they always teach me sooo much.
She has a dayhome for 2to5 year olds. I take over for her one afternoon a week.
Outside playing in the snow; Jozien, come look! They find some feathers in the snow.
We gather them all and, look at there beauty, feel their softness, stuff them in pockets and wonder what had happened.
And i do believe, looking at their spots and the softness of the feathers, they were owl feathers. which is very sad indeed.
Later Gwen, the poet among us. Calls me that she saw a Raven in the sky dropping a feather. It happens to be an Bald Eagle, and it probably did drop a feather. We all look up at the sky.
playing, playing, but often they hear the birds and look up to listen. And we love to fly.
And i end here with a poetic line from Gwen, which she came up with last summer, 4 years old.
lets follow the bug!
it will bring us to the bird
And here a bird of prey, they've been arriving or on their way through.
Which one is this?
Thank you all! A Hawk it is, most likely.

I had a post about these tiny bugs a few days ago. I did get some information wrong. I changed that post and here is a website to read about them.
