Full disclosure – this was a crap week in pictures for me. We had plans EVERY SINGLE day of this week, and my picture taking took a backseat to running around and having playdates and such. All of these pictures are actually from the same day, the one day we managed to take a long walk together!
These lovely purple flowers looked excellent adorned with morning dew drops.
About a fifteen minute walk up the road from us is an adorable little farm. We see the owner walking all the time, and last time she let us know that they have a new baby donkey, and we should just let ourselves in the gate and go visit! I was just as excited as my little. Mama is up front, baby is to the right and Daddy is to the left. Just look how fuzzy that baby is!!
The donkeys were so friendly, nuzzling right up to us, and letting us pet them. Mama (pictured here) was all about getting some attention! The baby was a bit skiddish, and tended to stay close to mum or dad. But eventually he(she?) warmed up too.
My hubby actually took this one for me. I am terrified of spiders, but I definitely can appreciate their value and even yes, sometimes, beauty. I love the yellow and black contrasts on these orb spinners. . .however I was NOT trudging into spider laden territory to get this shot. His back was away from us, so my wonderful hubs climbed up the bank to snap a picture for me. I wish it had been closer, but the angle was really awkward, and I didn’t have my zoom lens. While my hubs isn’t afraid of spiders like me, he wasn’t about to get too close either!
Clockwise, from top left. . .
1. We started our Labor Day morning with pancakes.
2. This little moth decided to join me in a late night painting session.
3. The hubs was out at the MTG Judge Conference this weekend, so we spent Friday and most of Saturday at my bff’s place. They have a great park to go to!
4. I’ve posted lots of book photos as the September edition of Books and Cupcakes Book Photo Challenge is in full swing! The prompt list is below – hop in and join the fun with #booksandcupcakes #bookphotochallenge, and (if you’re taking part in it) use #novelteabookclub to share your snaps with members!

Oh, the donkeys! And the baby donkey! That is so awesome that she told you to scoot in and have a peek. 😀
And the spider is fantastic, too! I don’t know if you saw my Three Things Thursday post this week, but it looks like we have very similar spider friends. 🙂
Ah I definitely did see that! Your picture is far more impressive than mine that’s for sure! Such great color contrast in these spiders.
The first photo is GORGEOUS!! and awww the donkey is so darn cute!! My grandpa has a lot of donkeys at his home in Mexico… they are very noisy lol I remember when we’d go to visit the donkeys would always “hee haw” (or whatever it is they do lol) and they would ALWAYS scare me haha
Haha! I always find the noise donkeys make hilarious. It just cracks me up!
I’ve never met a donkey before, but now I really want to pet one. They’re so cute! It was cool of the owner to invite you guys to go see them! That spider (and its web) are impressive. I probably would have kept my distance, too. I’m a fan of small house spiders, but I wouldn’t want to get too close to anything that large.
