house girl, at rest...

In a rare moment, our girl takes a break from her chores.

We have had mixed luck with the help. The boy has been quite useless. But the girl has been surprisingly industrious, very reliable, and extremely hard working. She even knows how to read!

They make a funny couple, really. We don't understand them at all.
