Farewell to Miss Peach

(image found at Purrchance To Dream
made by Jan of Jan's Funny Farm for the Cat Blogosphere)

This morning I found out that Miss Peach has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. That made me so very sad... Who is Miss Peach, you think? Well, in her own words: "I am Misses Peach, an 18 year old Victorian Devon Rex kitty who tolerates living in this modern world but would rather live in Jane Austen or Beatrix Potters time." A cat? Yes, but not just any cat...

As a beginning blogger I visited Miss Peach's Meowz, my first encounter with a blogging cat. Little did I know... There is a whole Cat Blogosphere of cats with blogs! Cat-lover as I am, I started following a lot of them. Miss Peach always had her special place in my heart. Can you care for a cat you've never met irl? I know I can! Non-catlovers and non-bloggers (and maybe more people) might not understand, but I don't care. Of course it's not the same as loving my own furballs, but that doesn't mean it isn't real...

Rest in peace, sweet tiny Miss Peach! You'll be missed around the world... My heart goes out to her loving family, that took such great care of her until the very end. A candle will be burning in front of my Bast statue for all of you!

The Queen's Meme - The Upside Down Question Meme

Questions you say? Today we shall ask questions about..well....questions. I shall pose a question. Your answer must be a question. Behold your brain-twisting activity for the day...
If you could ask one question of the following .....
What would your question be?

Your iPod
"How do you know exactly what song to play 'at random'?"

Casey Anthony
"How did it come this far???"

Your ex's last ex
I think I am my ex's last ex...

Your pet
"Can you really understand a word I'm saying?"

John Lennon
"Can you forgive Mark Chapman?"

Your great-grandmother on your father's side
"How did a typical day in your life unfold?"

Your mirror
"Why can't you just lie to me?"

Foofur & Arwen in the dunes

Yesterday I took Foofur & Arwen for a walk in the dunes. I made pics and two short video's. When I got home I downloaded Windows Movie Maker and started experimenting. This is the result! No music yet (still have to figure that out), just the sound of the wind. I hope you'll enjoy it nevertheless. :)

Adiana progress update

Do you see the two white spots left and right of center? We have twins! *lol* Hahaha, no... Those are the Adiana inserts. Last Thursday I had an appointment to check the progress. I got an internal ultrasound scan and a talk with the gynaecologist. Everything is okay, it's going as planned. I've made an appointment in October for the  final HSG-test.

The Queen's Meme - Mimi's Old Memes Meme

Mimi took one question from each of the first 7 question memes she ever did and put them into this meme!
  1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? (from The Silly Questions Meme)
    ---> Aaaargh, bad hair day!
  2. Name something about humanity you absolutely hate. (from The Monday Melee Meme)
    ---> abuse of children and animals in any way
  3. What was the first lie your mother ever told you? (from Ten Lies My Mother Told Me meme)
    ---> I don't want to remember that...
  4. Name one thing you should never say around a Ouija Board. (from The Ten Things You Should Never Say Around a Ouija Board meme - from Frank @ Honk'n'Hollr)
    ---> "Wanna play? Come on over!" (although I strongly discourage use of a Ouija board, but that's another discussion)
  5. What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now? (from the I Think I Caught Something Meme)
    ---> I don't have a bathtub (yet!), but in the shower I use Dove.
  6. If a doctor told you today that you were pregnant, what would you say? (The Honesty Meme)
    ---> "Whaaaaaaaaaaat???" Although technically still possible I hope not (see my Adiana post)
  7. Are you in a complicated love situation? (from The Don't Call Me, I'll Call You Meme)
    ---> Thank goodness no! I'm happily married. :-)
Mr. Linky doesn't work for this meme for me, but if you leave a comment I'll visit you!

Castlefest 2011

Oops, quite some time again since I posted last time. It's not that I don't want to post, but most of the time it would be bad news and rants. Life isn't great at the moment, and that's a huge understatement...
We did go back Lier for 5 days and we had some wonderful times there. The weather wasn't great, but we enjoyed ourselves nevertheless. Unfortunately I caught a bronchial infection. Even with antibiotics it took quite some time to cure. When I got better, Ron got sick. Nice couple we are, always lucky! :-S

Last weekend we went to the fantasy/medieval/gothic/pagan fair Castlefest. We had a great time! Here's a video, that gives a nice impression:
In the afternoon there was a cloud burst or maybe a few all together! We found shelter under a tree, but still got soaking wet. The rest of the day it was dry and even sunny at times. We met a lot of friends and others, went to a lecture, watched some great bands perform... We had a great time! I've put the pictures we made in an album on Facebook (no account needed to see them).
