{just a pretty image today}

my mind is jam-packed with school stuff today
so no wise words to share with you
just a pretty photo I took 

oh wait...........
 I did learn a new word today from one of my students........
do you know what a zedonk is?

the offspring of a zebra and a donkey
it truly is I looked it up
boy my students are smart.... I really think they may not need me at all this year

I will pick a winner this Friday for my
Where Women Cook giveaway

No problamo. I know how that goes. I'll take one little adorable picture anytime. Spent the day out ATVing, that's antiquing, thrifting and vintage shopping. What fun to find anothers trash, which will be a blog post treasure someday.

Wishing you a lovely week filled with beauty of all kinds...and new words galore!

Well, you know what they say - A picture is worth 1000 words - or 999 in this case. Do you think next year will be the "year of the zedonk??'

Beautiful teacups. Kids are so smart! My grandsons always amaze me with what they know and I don't.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I had to look up zedonk and came across Pippy who lives in Georgia. She looks like a donkey up top but has striped legs. So cute! Back to school this week has been good but my sleep pattern is off and I feel sooooooooooooooo tired. Thankfully it is the weekend. Best wishes, Tammy

I wanted to drop in for a bit of Bluebird cheer and sure enough your beautiful picture made me smile. On top of that...I learned a new word, can't ask for more!

K @ Aurora Blythe said...

Sometimes the picture is spot on and no words are necessary. Love your penchant for blending beauty and creativity through the lense of a camera. Your pictures often bless me!

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Thank you for sharing "zedonk" with us. Now, tomorrow, I will have an awesome new word to share :o)
Oh, one of my former students stopped in my classroom the other day and we reminisced about her sixth grade year. She brought up our "Olympics Party" ~ and I smiled thinking that it was inspired by the Olympic mascot book you sent to me.

Onward to another inspiring year!
*Bless you always,

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Precious one! I OVER SLEPT UNTIL 5:00am!!! That is too late for me!!! We have an assembly today, writing and more procedures to teach, FINE WEATHER, and a second recess since it is going to be 80 degrees outside...and it is indeed FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But of course, it never gets SUPER COLD...bring a cozy sweater, but also something light, JUST IN CASE!!! I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU..I am reserving that Friday night and Saturday to make either dates. LET'S KEEP IN TOUCH.....AND YOU ARE LOVIN' SCHOOL??????? YIHHHHHAAAAAAAA! I know, I love the students. But I just need to get used to the early morning hours and juggling emails and blog comments!!!!

BIG HUGS and I cannot wait to meet you!!! Anita
