Jacky . . .

Yesterday I helped “dad”. I kept track on the peelings, of the about 100 peel and seal envelopes. He threw the peels onto the bed. It was pretty fun to catch them. Although he was a bit slow and I had to wait for the next one and next one . . .

Sour Cream Sugar Cake

I noticed a 2 dl tetra pack of whipping cream in the fridge. The best before had expired weeks ago. So, I made a quick and simple sour cream sugar cake.Sour Cream Sugar Cake img_2652c

2 dl sour cream, 1 ½ cups sugar, 1 ½ cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 egg Whisk egg and sugar. Mix flour and baking powder. Add it and the sour cream to the whisked egg and sugar. Bake in 175 Celsius for about 35 min.

New Lookout Spot

Jacky img_2622c Jacky loves his window sill in the utility room. (Blog post Oct. 2) He spends a lot of time up there. The window is too high up for me to see what he sees. I know there are birds and squirrels. But, not all the time. So I think he often just meditates. Last night we put up a new shelf in the bedroom for him to be able to watch what’s going on on the road side of our house. We put the shelf halfway up the window. I looks strange but it doesn’t matter. As long as Jacky is happy we are happy. And he is. I even saw him up there in the middle of the night at some point.

Jacky, two video clips

When I posted the pictures of Jacky on October 6 up on the laundry drying rack we thought he was done with the rack. But how wrong were we ? ! Nope, now it’s his favorite hobby. He’s up there many times a day. I still am afraid he will fall. The floor is so hard. It’s concrete covered with ceramic tiles. I have tightened the cord. I think it’s safer. Some nights we can hear him jump up there after we have turned off the lights at bed time. I can’t believe hi is doing it because it’s pitch dark ! Yesterday when he was up there my husband called me to come look. Really ! Jacky half asleep laying across the rack. My husband suggested we take the rack down. I don’t know. Would have to put it back every time I do the washing. Maybe we have to take it down when we leave Jacky at home alone. Thumbs up he grows out of the habit soon.

Alpacas & Alpaca socks

On Saturday there was the November market at Myyrmäki market square outside Myyrmanni mall. “Koiramäen kartano” had Alpaca products. Mittens, socks, beanies etc. I bought two pairs of socks. They had brought with them these two very cute Alpacas. Both were enjoying their “food” and didn’t seem to let anything bother them.

It’s snowing

Jacky our cat img_2382cJacky our cat img_2384cJacky our cat img_2386cWe woke at 6:30. My husband said look it’s snowing. I looked out the window. The ground barely white. When my husband was back from the dentist and we had done the grocery shopping I put the harness on Jacky. I wanted him to experience his first snow ! I took him outdoors and put him down. I’m not sure whether he liked the snow or not. Maybe he didn’t even notice it. I think Canelo playing with a tennis ball and cars driving by were much more exciting. But when the bus came he thought it too noisy and wanted back inside.
