Wednesday 15th was the first real spring day. Plus 9 degrees Celsius. Yay 😀 Roads and sidewalks are bare from snow. Still snow in our backyard. But it will disappear quickly enough as it was also warm yesterday, 8 C, and raining in the night. Best time of the year.
Jacky’s first Christmas and Christmas tree 🙂 Santa brought him this tube which he loves a lot. Hubby says it looks like a canoe.
Canelo got a green hippo from Santa. Watching the birds is tiresome. I need a nap. The flower is purrfect for that.
Canelo needed a grooming. So we took him to the groomer yesterday. This was the first time since Jacky came into the family. Oh my, you should have seen Jacky’s face when we came back home. His jaw dropped. Eyes and mouth wide open he stared at Canelo. What on earth happened to you ? ? And you really smell oddly ! All afternoon and evening he just had to sniff, lick and touch him. Canelo felt a bit annoyed and told him to leave him alone. This morning things are back to normal 🙂
The circle cat toy with a ball in it is a favorite toy. Jacky plays with it every day. He is able to make the ball spin around super fast. Canelo thinks it sounds so funny and wants to do it too. So they do it together. Canelo cannot make the ball run as fast as Jacky. But, I think they are so cute and I love to watch them. Sometimes we even see Canelo playing with the toy all by himself. Sorry about the background noise which is the dishwasher.
The boys playing ❤ 😀
After the coffee with my sister on Friday we went to meet my childhood friend. When she retired she moved back to her childhood home very close to my childhood home. It’s years since the last time I was there and I think as many years since my friend and I met. It was like stepping back in time. It all looked pretty much the same except that all the trees have grown. E.g. the little oak tree outside our house now already, after about 65 years, (the black and white photo) is a quite a big one. The ground cellar where all the potatoes, root vegetables, salted mushrooms, jams, juice, apples were stored for the winter also still is there. It was so nice to meet my friend and how sweet of her to arrange with the now owners of my childhood home to have us there to see the place. I love the changes made, modernized interior but keeping so much of the old. Thank you so much my dear friend for a fantastic afternoon and thank you to you now living in my beloved childhood home.
