This morning the winter came back. It snowed from the early hours of the morning. So the joy of the unexpected spring last week-end was rather short lived.- Never mind. We will wait till may.
I am suffering severe effects of sleep deprivation! For the past two weeks I hardly slept! All due to Aussie's imaginary fears. Two - three times a night he needs comforting shaking like a leaf and looking over his shoulder. Now it came to that that he doesn't want the light turned off! So last night we slept with it on! Tomorrow we are going to see a dog psychologist. OK, to forestall any witty remarks - it's a woman.- he!-he! He doesn't suffer in any other way - eats well and plays with Filou. I just have had enough of sleepless nights. I can imagine what the new parents go through with a young baby..
We are enjoying the morning walk with the neighbour.
A first sunny day for a long, long time. Gorgeous sunrise - the life is worth living! The ground was quite frozen still - perfect for an invigorating walk with the boys. The above flowers gathered in the market place are arranged in a container made by my fair hands! In the garden - just little green noses poking shyly from between the old blades of grass.
I resisted the temptation - the ice might be too weak for me!
Resting after the enjoyable early morning walk.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
We wish... All's frozen, cold and unpleasant outside.
SOMETHING THAT I MISSED...
A few years ago, in Shanhai, I contemplated buying this clock! It is so ugly that it becomes interesting! Now I am obsessed with going back to Shanghai and looking for it - maybe next year on my way to Australia...
TRYING ON A NEW DOG.
A HORSE WITH A BIG HEAD TO WORRY WITH...
The boys at home.
...give me a beach at any time of the year!
Huge choice of flowers and grave lanterns along the road to the cemetary.
My Parents' Grave
Gentle music adds to the reflective mood of the Necropolis.
