 Arthur loved to ride in the car and made sure that everybody behind us saw him ! He also loved to steal food, it tasted better !

Linking to Awwww Monday




Saturday I tried to sleep a bit longer, because I hadn't slept very well during the night, but of course at 7 am I was there impossible to fall asleep again. Outside it was dark like in a moles hole, but it had snowed a bit !

It looked beautiful and I thought I will stay home today, but then I had to visit Rick which I usually do on Saturdays. Now I really fear to go there, each time he seems a bit worse to me. Now he has a wheelchair which at the same time is also a walker. But he didn't want to get up and preferred to stay in bed. He looked very tired and also was quite confused. I had bought him a few Christmas decorations, but except for the Father Christmas, he showed no reaction. 

I stayed for a little more then an hour and then I saw on his face that he wanted to sleep. He is often very tired. I left and returned home.

Rosie was waiting for me but didn't collaborate to make a selfie with me. Each time I thought she was looking in same direction she moved her head !

On Sunday it was so humid cold and dark that I didn't want to go outside. Instead Adeline my neighbor and I went to the basement and carried up our Christmas decoration. I didn't even remember what I had bought last year, because I had left all old Christmas decoration in our house. Now I regret I few things. For Adeline it was the same. But then my energy had left me again and I just did decorate a bit. Tomorrow is another day !

These are all little table decorations, and the advent wreath, Adeline gave me a little fake Christmas tree which I still have to decorate. I am happy that we have made up our Christmas program, my son with family come to celebrate with me on Christmas Eve so that I am not alone, that would have been difficult and then on Christmas day we will see how Rick is feeling and if we can take him home at least for a couple of hours, but that's not sure at all. But sometime miracles happen !


  1. Definitely an awww moment. Many of our cats have loved stolen food too. Particularly butter.
    Your visit to Rick sounds heartbreaking. I am sure it is. Hugs.

  2. I've never had a kitty that liked riding in the car, but there are many that love it. He was most handsome.

    The view from your patio is most beautiful. Snow makes everything so quiet.

    Rosie is most beautiful. They never seem to pose do they?

    It's hard to see your loved one feeling not good. I so remember.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Gattina. Scritches to Rosie. ♥

  3. Those snow pictures are very pretty! Like a Christmas Card! Arthur sure was quite the character. How nice that you have all these pleasant memories!
    You have turned your apartment into a little Christmas House! So pretty!

    I am praying for a Christmas Miracle for you, your family and above all Rick. Wouldn't it be wonderful for him to be able to come home with you for a little bit. That would be so memorable and festive.

  4. I really, really hope that Rick will be able to come home for Christmas and that he will start to feel better.
