today, we had to put down our oldest cat, tomtom. (two years after his brother.)

rest in peace, tomtom!

a couple days after the previous stroll, i repeated the stroll. this time, there's a lot of snow!

on new year's day, we enjoyed a peaceful stroll through the nearby forest.

it finally started snowing. well, already two days ago. but today, for the first time, it was sunny again! (and we started moving the snow away from the balcony and the pathways so the cats won’t take a dump there…)

this is how it looks like from out of a cat tree:

once during the last days of december, a great fog panorama presented itself to us. the fog was close, but didn’t reach us yet:

in the last 30 days, a lot of things happened. the worst thing happening was that one of our cats, töffel, lost more and more strength and started looking really miserable. since in the weeks before we already had to give him infusions as he was drinking way too little, and he hated that pretty much, we decided not to start more medicine experiments and instead to stop his suffering by putting him to sleep. he’s probably better off now.

rest in peace, töffel!

it’s more than eight years ago that i started spielwiese.

so far, spielwiese was mostly a black and white, lowercase english experience. until now. using nikola‘s multilingual capabilities, i decided to try translating parts of spielwiese to züritüütsch, a swiss german dialect spoken in the canton of zürich, in which i’ve now spent more than eight years of my life.

since züritüütsch isn’t my native language and i’m still far from understanding and speaking it perfectly (though understanding is much better than speaking), i’ll surely make mistakes, though i hope most will be caught by my wife before setting them live :)

this is yet another experiment, and i’ll hope some of you will like it.
