Happy Easter

Mesi is trying to catch some feathers from the toys bought by the local witches* last weekend. 
 Shame there are no chicks attached to the feathers......

* there is a tradition here that children dress as witches on the Sunday before Easter,and come round to the houses with decorated sticks; they say a little rhyme in exchange for sweets. And we get the sticks.

Saturday return

And we are back!  We thank you for your good wishesfor Äiti's dizziness to depart. It hasn't, but it is better and some sitting out in the sunshine is helping us all. Spring seems to be here - even if there is still some snow outside. I have been very comfortable in my sweater, grabbing the rays. A Loyal Reader asked if there is a pattern - not really. Äiti chose an easy template and began crocheting.  But if anyone is really interested, I can instruct her to makea post about the design.
And as it is an arty Saturday, here is  a Lunapic version (Delaunay filter) of me. I've gone all blotty splotty.
And the jigsaw. Enjoy!

Sunday snooze

Pekka hogs Äiti's lap so she placed the laptop on top of him.  How rude.
Äiti is having a bit of a tough time with the dizzies right now,so we are going to have a bit of a blog break. Hopefully not for long though.

We're using a photo from earlier in the week for arty stuff. I'm not sure about this Lunapic 'life art' effect as it makes my butt look really fuzzy, and the picture is very dark. However, Äiti wanted to post it so I have allowed it as I am kind and generous. And maybe you might like it.
Anyway, here's a jigsaw for you. Have a good Saturday.

Thursday Spidercat

Mighty Mirsku was on perimeter duties as Pekka and Mesi soaked up the rays. Mirsku likes to keep himself occupied with a bit of stretching.
 And climbing. Luckily the Catio wire can cope with 6kg of muscle holding on by a few claws.
 Mirsku decided to descend. As gracefully as he could.
