This week I’ve spent lots of time with tiny animals. I’ve been wrangling, cuddling, bribing & generally annoying my feral little dogs which always involves equal parts eye rolling and laughter. And then…

A ladybug has turned up, awake and a little confused in my craft room at home. Because I’m an over thinker &  an animal lover (and yes, ladybugs count!) my first thought was that unless I put something out for her, this ladybug was going to die a terrible death from dehydration or starvation. Ignoring this would be like letting a ladybug version of the Saw films play out in the room where I knit & drink tea on the weekends! Obviously, I can’t let that happen.

After some online research I found that a water soaked paper towel would let her drink & a rasin soaked in warm water would help her keep up her nutrition. I placed them on a saucer on top of my typewriter by the window she’s been frequenting and very soon she found her way to it

I’m happy to report that the ladybug has been resting on her new saucer home since yesterday afternoon, and being able to watch her while I’m at my computer has been making my days a lot sweeter. Here’s hoping the weather changes to Spring soon so I can let her outside!

In the mean time, I’m thinking of naming her Beatrice.
