|Bathing Mathilde Plantagenet
||Today I did take
to visit the girl that has no seeing. I did tell her I would so bring Mathilde Plantagenet, and she did have joy feels when she did have thinks about Mathilde Plantagenet coming to visit her. Before we did start, I did give Mathilde Plantagenet a good footbath, as
does always take one before she goes a-visiting. Then I did wash the neck and ears of Mathilde Plantagenet in a careful way. It took four
-bottles full of water to do so.
||I have had a big problem. That's what
says when she has had a
difficulty of managing
. My big problem was what to carry water in when I go to make prepares to give my pets foot-baths and neck-and-ear washes. I have tried thimbles to use for wash-pans when I do wash the hands of my pets, but thimbles hold not enough of water. Often and often again there is needs to go for more water when one does use thimblefuls at a time. Sometimes now I do use a
jar. It holds more water than does a thimble, but mostly now I do carry
bottles full of water when I start on my way to wash the neck and ears of my animal friends. Sadie McKibben has gave me advice and a
to carry those Castoria bottles full of water in.
