Day 6-7 (Saturday & Sunday, June 23rd - 24th, 2012): Duck Sitting Ghalita
Ghala loves it when I sit outside with her. Our routine, for most days, is wake up, she bathes, then perches on the edge of the tub and dries off (while I do her laundry--duck diapers and towels). If it's raining we stay inside, if not, we go outside and she stands on the deck or near me as I read manuscripts or work in the garden. Sometimes Ghala keeps company with my khaki girl Chai, who is one of the only ducks I can allow in the garden, so I call her my garden duck. Chai forages for several hours per day in the garden without disturbing the plants.

Ghala is a smart one, too, as it didn't take her long to figure out the garden rules, such as where the path is located. She wandered around, through the carrots and over a few bricks and flower bed
barriers, but soon discovered the walking route, perhaps by seeing Chai use the paths.
