A peaceful and happy Sunday…

Same feelings, same situation after three years. It’s terribly hot, thunders are on the way to cool it down, and maybe some rain…Hope springs eternal as they say….we still hope…

This is the first Sunday of this summer… Appreciated moderate temperatures, light winds, generous sunshine make it a wonderful day, -may be- the last peaceful Sunday of this season. Next weekend with the beginning of summer holidays all holiday houses in the neighbourhood will be occupied then peace will be sorely missed for two months… Better enjoy every minute of this last week of June, September seems a long way away with the help of headphones…

My ET on #macromonday

#macromonday with peony roses, and I’d like to talk about my post of #silentsunday.  A White Cat on A Quince Tree

That single photo was very important to me under the circumstances. After months of fighting with a serious illness my sweet cat was out and about, climbing on a tree. It is her kidneys that need constant care until her death. For a cat that was born in the garden, being inside, not wanting to go out was for me very difficult to accept. After weeks of force feeding, sleepless nights (still ) she is getting better with medicine ( for life), and a special cat fountain. Because these things should keep her alive.
That photo, and a few more showed her as her usual self: something that has made me silent and think about the difficult times we’ve been through. Is she out of the woods yet? I don’t know…Nothing is certain in life, we are not eternal. I will cherish our time together as I had always done with all my pets: dogs, cats, and a dear wild rabbit before ET.  As I’m planning to travel in coming years, ET will be my last furry companion for the time being.

Longing For The Sea



It’s too hot, too sunny, it feels like a real summer day before Summer. What makes it even hotter is  preparing tax papers: that annual torture day! It’s confusing to fill tax papers for two countries in our united Europe! So only thing that gives me pleasure today to dream about the sea, a splash, a fun swim…I’m OK now, back to the papers….
