Donkeys in the Mist
Man was it foggy this morning! First morning in ages that we have had fog like this. I couldn't even see my MIL house, and it is only 214 feet from mine... snort snort... the only reason I know the distance is because of the electrical line. No really that is true ;0)
Anyway I got some cool photographs this morning for Donkey Saturday. First is the sunrise. Pretty huh? The second one has Coffee walking through the gate to come and get his morning ear rub. Love that sunrise in the fog.
And how do you like this group shot? This is from one side looking back towards two pens of donkeys, you can see my Standards between the two pens. The oak tree also stands between the pens, can't be in the pen or the donkey would rub and chew on it and I don't want anything to damage this tree. But this photo does give you an idea of a group of my children. And this is only 10 or so out of 26.
Then I caught what we call Donkey Kisses. I have showed photos of this before, but I love when it is Darlene and Macey..... where does one start and the other end? This is a bit of you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours type of thing. :0)
I wasn't going to show this, but then decided to go ahead. It didn't come out at "nice" as I wanted. I purchased a puzzle card for my Nephew, his birthday was this week and his party is this weekend. And I thought he would get a kick out of the card coming in pieces, he is now 6. Well this puzzle is slick paper, and man .... my Copics were not happy coloring on it! Not fun, and next time I will have to try something else, I don't even know if my pencils would have colored on it. So it is a bit streaky and not even, but I finally got it where I accepted it. Now the funny thing - This new Magnolia Edwin stamp... it is my nephew. NO really it is him!!
And you want to see even funnier -
Remember my card with Tilda in front of the Alota Rubber stamps school house? This is my Niece... SO you know I had to own these two new stamps right? I mean I think they used my Niece and Nephew for the models!
Ok, I think that is long enough... whew! Hope you have a great Saturday planned, mine is some blog surfing for a few minutes, laundry, some house cleaning and then cake making later... Yes, I am the official birthday cake maker.... One decorated for the kids to eat and then I make something more "adult" and from scratch. Kids this year is going to be the some fly boat thing from one of the cartoons he watches. Sorry I forgot the name again. And the other is called "14 carrot cake". I don't like carrot cake, but I love this one lots of yummies in it! And fresh whipped cream cheese frosting don't hurt! So better get going - hope you have a great day and get inky!
