It's Ladybug Season. The outside Ladybugs are doing what they can to become inside Ladybugs, so they can hibernate the winter away in comfort. This old house has ample cracks and tiny spaces that allow them entry. When they come in, Alice takes it upon herself to monitor their activity.
Thank goodness we don't get the scourge of Ladybugs that I have heard that some people have in their houses in winter. We only get a few ... enough to keep Alice occupied and out of trouble, but not so much as to be a problem.
A Fine Prospect
