Saturday Morning


No movement in the garden on this Saturday morning. No noise either. I have stopped giving seeds to the birds for three or four days – I was told that that disaccustomed them from looking their food, that it is necessary to feed them only when there is snow on the ground…

It will be sunny today. But no sunshine in the garden for the time being. 1°C (33°F) now, half past eleven. Frimousse’s Mistress is away skiing. She’ll have a beautiful day.

Is the winter finished? Daffodils and tulips are growing!

We still have the Christmas tree. It does not shed many needles. Then, why not keeping it inside? It has been a long time since Frimousse’s Mistress’s Yule log was eaten. But, the day before Christmas, it was not possible not to think of them






It is cold this Tuesday morning ( – 3.5°C 25°F) on the window sill at the moment (9:30 am). As the snow is not thick and it has slightly melted, and the lane is a real ice rink. I feed “the birds of the air”. Seeds on the windowsill and the “fat balls” suspended under the lime tree. In memory of Frimousse, to whom sparrows gave numerous moments of happiness. They are cold and Frimousse would say: “They would be much more comfortable inside my stomach”
Frimousse’s Mistress has started putting Christmas decorations. As far as the Chrismas tree is concerned, RouXy’s Master says we have to wait until December 20th to cut it this year – a master in the science of trees, he cuts according to the moon. Frimousse’s Mistress is getting ingredients ready to bake Christmas biscuits. She cannot rely on RouXy to help her this year …
She went skiing on Sunday. She hopes the snow won’t melt. If there is no snow, she can go running! I bought her shoes of another make, which seem to be better for her ankles – you can see that I run by proxy … This morning her ankle is a bit sore. Skiing doesn’t seem to be a good thing, in spite of what her doctor says…
