I'm not sure who taught him about them, but Dan has recently taken an interest in snow angels. I'd never actually seen him make one, until he made this one for the photo, but he talks about them all the time.
Then, the other night in the barn, I was shoveling TMR while Dan played on the other side of the pile. When he disappeared, I peered over the pile to see where he had went.
I found Dan laying in the TMR on the edge of the pile.
"What are you doing?" I asked him.
"I'm making feed angels," he replied.
I chuckled and went back to shoveling.
Last weekend, we finally got around to conquering the disaster area that was our basement. One of the tasks was sorting through the pile of clothes that had accumulated under the laundry chute.
As I sorted lights from darks, Dan pitched in by handing me articles of clothing so I didn't have to bend down. The next thing I knew, he was laying in what was left of the pile.
"What are you doing, Dan?" I asked.
"I'm making clothes angels," he looked up at me and said.
As I finished the laundry, it occurred to me that maybe Dan was onto something.
If we had a snow angel to clear the snow, a feed angel to feed the cows, and a clothes angel to do the laundry, our workload would be a lot lighter. We could actually use a whole fleet of angels, but these three would be a good start.
