Animal Wednesday / Koekie and Minoes

 I have been very busy (and still am) with an art project for Felix'school next week.
I have designed 7 mandalas with the theme what comes out of  an egg?
Here is one of the 7 designs. From each mandala I made a coloring page. The kids can choose one of these designs, which they will have to color with watercolor pencils.
A week later they will have an exhibition at school.
All groups will have their own artist doing a project with them.
Unfortunately I will be in Japan but my husband will take pictures.

Yesterday I was working on this mandala and normally Minoes occupies a bed on my desk. But while she was away Koekie wanted some attention and I put her on the desk.

So when Minoes returned they had to share the bed. poor Minoes......
For me it is very cramped to work like that, but I enjoy my animals as long they don't walk over my work or keyboard........

 This picture was taken while I was taking a nap.
Here it is the other way around Koekie was there first and Minoes just wriggled her bum in..... Poor Koekie!
Waiting for food!!!!!
We have built in flash lights in our eyes.
Where is Sjimmie?????????
Hunting for food for the ladies?
No  just checking the heating....... too cold to be out hunting 

Happy Animal Wednesday!


  1. The project for the school children looks like fun. I know they will enjoy it. You have quite the menagerie. Those kitties look like they are ready to gang up on you. Enjoy your time in Japan.
