Our village at night 

A picture postcard photo, but how dumb am I looking at it and wondering why it is snowing, of course it is winter there.

Lovely pics Nonna. You have an eye for composition.  The shot with the sheep reminded me of  an Italian chap I worked with 40 years ago. He always liked bright frosty weather and said it reminded him of autumn in the mountains in Italy.

As for my day today. I'm struggliing with a recurrent ear problem. Makes me a bit dizzy, gives me slight earache, slight headache, slight visual issues and slight nausea. So.. overall not serious.. no temperature or fever etc.. But it is a right royal PITA and can make me feel pretty deathly.. so I've got a telephone consult booked with the Doc for next week.

 

On a brighter note, our mass Christmas lights switch on went well. Almost all of the street was out and young Sam and Daisy did a fab countdown.  We even attracted a few folks from neighbouring streets!

Lovely to see where you live, Nonna and I must say you're a wizard with the piping bag! The houses are beautiful

I agree.  The trouble is that they look too good to eat!

DJ thanks but the photo isnt mine . Someone in the village put loads of photos on FB of the village in various stages of the year and some of the festivities for us to remember what we missed this year. A lovely thought and it brightened many people up im sure.

Good morning, just got up and what do I see? Snowing again, worse than yesterday.

Yesterday we had a lovely surprise, the Lord Mayor of the village where my husband was born sent us 3 boxes of locally produced tomato based products.

Snowing here in the fens as well - about an inch overnight and still snowing.  One of our cats has been a bit poorly for a few days, didn’t eat at all yesterday and hasn’t come home this morning.... he’s 12.  Doesn’t sound like good news does it

Rain turned to sleet here. The snow flakes are getting a bit bigger and more plentiful. Kai has retired to his bed as we aren’t going for a walk giving me the sad eyes!
Fingers crossed your cat turns up Margie.

@margie Cats are strange creatures with strange ways as you know. We have an elderly black cat who will sometimes take herself off at night to sleep in the hay in the field shelter. Our security camera alarm just sounded and I spotted on my iPad a neighbour’s cat happily trotting down the drive in the falling snow when it could have been snug at home. You can’t understand cats!

Inscrutable certainly.... but I wish his mum (who is still in the house) would go and look for him!  She’s just sitting on the windowsill staring out into the garden

If it is time,  he will not want to be found and his mum probably knows that instinctively.

 

 

I hope he returns to you, Margie, but when the moment comes, many cats like to be alone not surrounded by fussing humans and certainty not at the vet's.  I can understand their reasoning. That would be my preference too.

 

We are too fond of imposing our will on pets and relatives/friends when the time comes to move on. It makes us feel better but it really isn't about what we want. It's what they want.

@Jill Sparrow  I totally agree with you about their ‘holing up’ somewhere to

get better (or otherwise). One cat we had about 20 years ago was not well and I kept trying to spoon salmon in her mouth because she was refusing to eat!  Eventually she escaped and just disappeared.  She was found about 3 days later curled up dead in some long grass in an unkempt garden a few doors away.   Since then, I’ve never tried to force feed any of our cats.  I just want Zippy to be found (whatever)

I just hate not knowing what’s happened to him.  Loads of people on our local village Facebook page are keeping an eye open for him ....
