Default MMTPT443~Jan. 17, 2016~And On That Farm She Had a...Donkey?

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #443


And On That Farm She Had a.....Donkey?



Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!



The Rest of the Story:

1: Oh the wonderful life on the farm. It's so peaceful out here and Lil' Red couldn't wait to get all settled in and start getting barns built and pastures fenced so that she could start feeling like a real farmer. She had the land, she had the house, and one slightly old donkey. She really needed more animals, good barns, and she really wanted to widen a spot in that creek and make a pond. That would just be the perfect cooling off spot after a hot day.

2: All of this is just dreams for now until she gets the well dug and the barn built but she can't help but think about how lively things will be around here when she has cows grazing, roosters crowing and hens laying. And then there's all the little critters that will come around too. Oh, how she longs for that day. Lil' Red has a habit of also talking to herself or to Jebidiah the donkey since there isn't anyone else around. So anyone driving by might think that she's a little off the crock so to speak if they see her out in the field talking to an old donkey.

3: But Jebidiah has been with Lil' Red all her life as she inherited him from her Granny Ol' Red who bought Jebidiah shortly after he was born. And Jebidiah is used to just listening and even occasionally brays a response. Well, what the folk around don't know, is that Jebidiah really is in the know and has numerous connections with various not-well known sources and he is determined to make Lil' Red happy and her dreams come true a little quicker.

4: One night late, Lil' Red heard Jebidiah braying but when she looked out the window, she didn't see anything so just went back to bed. In the morning when she started on her daily rounds of the field to forage some greens for dinner she noticed several rabbits hopping away from her approach, a startled covey of quail and even an old barn cat chasing some field mice. Oh how nice, she thought, finally some life around here other than ol' Jeb and me. Going on about her business she didn't think any more about it at the time. However, the next morning she noticed that now some ducks had moved up from the creek and had a nest, and further on she spotted a couple hens scratching for bugs down near the creek. "What on earth is going on here?" she knew she hadn't missed seeing any of these things in past days. And ol' Jebidiah just brayed and walked peacefully along behind her.



Challenge Translation:

Peaceful pastoral scenes to soothe and some critters to bring a smile are all welcome this week.


Destination Station:

This week our teaparty is going to be in Arizona. (Hope they have better weather than we do here). If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Bobbette. She was brought to our attention by Teapotterville resident Gail Graffiti


to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 549 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

Here is a quick link to the MMTPT443 challenge gallery

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT443 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

Her story touches my heart, especially since yesterday was my husband's 5th angelversary.


If I cannot make a new card in the next day or so, I will send her one from my stash.

Here is my card for today's challenge. I wandered from doing a scene and somehow ended with a jar of flowers. Please enjoy, and thanks for looking.

Smile MMTPT443 Watering Hole

here's some more storyline- Jeb realized that it was going to be a warm summer, and some of his savannah friends were looking for a change- so he invited them to join him and his friends. So here's a lion and a rhino enjoying the watering hole- some evergreens ( I am in NW Washington) and a variety of other trees, with some sunshine peeking through! Enjoy my card Watering Hole.

Here's my card. My distant garden is out on the farm. You just can't see the goats outside the fence.

I have just posted a PEACE quilt card that I have already sent to Bobbette, reminding her that she is loved. I hope to have other cards ready to send soon. Thank you to everyone for participating in this teaparty request. I know Bobette will be overwhelmed with all the love and encouragement she will feel when she opens her mail. Big Hugs.

Here's my card for Bobbette, Hang in there. My heart goes out to her. This may not seem pastoral to some, but I find hanging out laundry to be a calming, reflective activity!

Amazing Woman card posted for Bobbette. This is my favorite positive encouragement sentiment. "Has anyone told you yet today just how absolutely, positively, incredibly amazing you are"?

I haven't been on SCS in a while. I created a card for Bobbette and tried to follow the SC628. It isn't exact, but I hope it is ok to post it there anyway.

Love in Action

I used a card from my stash- maybe there is a bird house somewhere on the farm!
