Today isn’t my best day. I don’t feel like blogging or a new week. After the unexpected and bad news of Ravasz’s last blood test, it was a rollercoaster of thoughts in my head. On the dark days, I just wanted to hug Ravasz and I was overwhelmed by restlessness. On the few sunny days that suddenly felt like spring, I didn’t know where to start or what to do first with current projects.
A large part of the snow melted away last week. The snow labyrinth that I was working on is reduced to a few pathetic looking lumps of ice and on the road, treacherous ice spots that are hidden under a fine layer of fresh snow make walking (and driving) dangerous. We had planned a trip to Belgium in February for the birthday of my grandmother and my godchild but since the vet gave us the advice not to travel with Ravasz, we stay here.
But it’s not all sadness. Definitely not. Ravasz is still 200% cookie-monster and he enjoys every new day (and all the snacks and stuffed Kongs he gets) and Oona and Mogwai make us laugh with their crazy and wild games.
I have to keep an eye on Oona when she’s playing because she’s hiding toys for Mogwai and if she does take them back herself, we will not find them back until spring – if they don’t disappear under spring water.
One of the last pictures on the lake. For now, we avoid lake walks as it’s been way too warm to have safe ice.
Something that finally did work out very well are these pendants with dog hair. I have to finish them, of course, but it wasn’t easy to get the process right. Many experiments and many failures but now I have a series of pendants from all my dogs. As soon as they are finished, I take new photos and show you.
That’s it for today. Ravasz is standing next to me looking as if he knows I’m about to pack the cookies and put on my boots.
Yes, I’m coming!
We are going for a walk!
