This photo (which will be appearing soon as part of another post) is currently my favorite picture of me. And not because of the me, but because of the way Poky is looking at me. Like she loves me. Donkeys are more affectionate than most, or any, other farm animals. Donkeys are very satisfying.
Today is my birthday, so I’m taking the day off posting. I’m baking myself my favorite super spice cake (see the recipe here). All the years I was growing up, whenever my mother asked me what cake I wanted for my birthday, it was always spice cake. I love spice cake. With cream cheese frosting, of course!
Already, for my birthday, I have been given a bunch of two-year-old asparagus plants (yay!) and a cherry tree (double yay!). And always, every day, I’m given the gift of you. Thank you for being here. I’ll be back to regular posting tomorrow.
