It's been very cold here for a couple of weeks. Colder than it has been in about 12 years, I think. Really cold, really pretty, but really cold.

I'm on my favorite table, down by the small canal behind our house, debating if I want to walk on the ice ...

I quickly left that scene ... tell-tale signs I was on that table.

Humans love this stuff ...
This is the pond in our neighborhood, currently a natural ice rink.

When the canals, ponds or lakes freeze, the Dutch go skating! I'm a native Dutch cat, but I don't skate. I don't even like to walk on that white stuff, no way.
Me, the Queen of all I survey, go outside again? Surely you jest!

Ok, so it's probably going to warm up this week ("they"predict) and all this cold stuff will melt, then I can go outside and track my muddy pawprints back into the house.....yessssssssss!!!
Well that's about it from my point of view. My humans are off next week for another vacation - in Germany this time. They're going to find the Ampelmann and what's left of The Wall again (and "mom" is taking her sketchbook again, of course) ... can you guess where they're going? lol . I'll be back, when they get back.
doei! (bye!)
