Almost a miracle day

It was a day filled with little miracles today. First the world turned completely white with loads of snow. All the bushes and trees outside are wearing white fluffy hats and it looks truly beautiful.

The second amazing event was a visit from Sjefke. Now why is that amazing? Sjefke is a baby donkey, only three weeks old. He lives on a farm that is owned by good friends of mine. Since I have been sick, I could not pay them a visit to celebrate the birth of this gorgeous boy donkey. Kees (his owner) decided that if I did not come to him, he would just bring the baby to me. So we had a baby donkey in our hallway! He was not fazed by this at all. He walked through like he belonged. His enormous ears and his silky, spotted coat where stunning in real life. Meanwhile his mother was still in the trailer making loads of noise. People walked by looking really stunned about the long and loud IIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAA. Of course my camera was empty, but luckily pictures have already been posted on Facebook (Sjefke on Facebook), just click on the link and you'll find much more pictures of him and his mother Majolica.

What a boy!
As everything seems to happen in three, the third little miracle. Our dog Sara got really, really sick very very fast. We called the vet, had to bring her over immediately. We all were convinced that we would not see her again, she was that sick. She couldn't walk, her eyes were rolling back. It was horrible. However, arriving at the vets, madam stepped out of the car like nothing happened. The vet checked her thoroughly and diagnosed the event as an epileptic one. So we have our girl back, she is tired but happy. We need to watch her of course but for now, all is well. Hopefully it will stay that way!

More soon,
