Another chilly morning, after a clear and cold night. It was shortly before 8am when I took these Ice Flower photos from the kitchen window. It was -13°C / 8.6°F at that time. Murli always sleeps under my blanket all night when it’s that cold lol. The heat is on at all times, but I understand she likes it snuggly warm during her sleep.

From the webcam on castlehill, the view over the city shortly before and during sunrise was really beautiful again.

The first picture is the view to the East at 7:30am. If East would be the 15 minute point on a clock, the sun comes up at the 20 minute point. The second picture is the view to the West.

These two pictures were from 8:30am.

Murli and I are both feeling really well! The migraine free phase is still going due to the continuous cold weather. According to the forecsat, the temperatures might go down to -18°C / -0.5°F over night❄❄❄ Depends if it stays clear, or if there will be fog towards the morning. With fog it doesn’t cool out that much.

Murli has continued having her boxpawties all week lol. This one is from yesterday, Caturday. We now have another version, which is the sidebox… She loves running through the “tunnel” that’s created in that way, and she’s had a nap in there this morning as well.

Another frigid day! Only 0°F / -17.7°C an hour before sunrise (Sunrise was at  7:42am). It created beautiful ice flowers! These were on the kitchen window, and when I took that photo, it was already almost 10am and much “warmer” outside and so the ice on the window was already melting. That melt created these cute formations❄️

It was sunny all day, so Murli could have a nice sunshine nap on the window sill😺☀️

Murli and I wish you all a happy WhiskersWednesday!😺

January 8, 2017 More snow and ice

This mornings ice flowers, while it was -9°C / 15.8°F outside. The lowest temperature this dreary morning was at -11°C / 12.2°F with freezing cold wind. As it continues to be that chilly, I continue to be free from migraines. For as long as it stays like this, I get to have a break. At least from migraines caused by warmer, spring-like weather and Foehn wind.

It started snowing as well:

Murli and I didn’t get that much sleep, since we stayed up pay past 2am, playing, cuddling and me on my iPad, trying to catch up on what I missed online that day😸 Despite that, she was energetic and awake, running zoomies around the home and playing. There was lots of playtime until she suddenly felt tired… and was lost in her thoughts, while trying to decide between playing or napping. She decided to take a nap btw🐱💤💤💤

As the snow continued to fall lightly, Murli curled up on the bed and slept all afternoon. There was a lot more playtime in the evening, with the latest box she got to keep. The one from Caturdays delivery😸📦

Btw, she starts to get more black whiskers on the right side of her face (her right). The ends of her right sides whiskers are also black. They grew out white, but then make a gradient into black. Her left side still has more white ones, but some of them also have black ends. It’s been changing around like this ever since she was a kitten, including the whiskers above her eyes.

In case you didn’t read it when I talked about it, but her MamaCat was a tabby and her PapaCat was completely black. That way, Murli still has a strong tabby gene in her. The fluff fur, under the cover fur has the tabby stripes slightly visible. But they were the most apparent with her fluffy kitten fur when she was little: Take a look here

Anyway, in photos it might look like she has lost whiskers on one side, but they are just hard to see since they’re black 😸

Have a lovely day and night everyone! Hope everyone is well and warm❤️❤️❤️

January 7, 2017 Ice cold Caturday

The temperatures dropped lower yesterday and even lower over night. An ice cold wind was blowing all day, and the cold stung and hurt in my hands within just a few seconds, just when I opened the window for a short period to get fresh air in. At night, at about 10pm, the wind was even colder than during the day and it was a clear sky. Which meant of course that the temperatures are going to drop even more over night.

These ice flowers formed yesterday. It was 10pm when I took these photos and the temperature was -8°C / 17.6°F

Over night the temperatures dropped even more of course. I woke up at about 5:30am, while it was still dark outside and I could hear by the sound the tram makes on their rail, that it must be ice cold outside. Because when it gets really cold, they make much more noise in their rails. During more mild temperatures you can’t hear it at all from where I am. It has been very quiet over night, the street empty. No one wants to walk around in these temperatures lol. I also find things sound kind of muffled when it gets to -10°C / 14°F

Yesterday, Friday, was a holiday here. And the delivery with Murlis food for the month arrived today. Of course I got her some more toys again…😹
