Merry Christmas!

What is going on Sonic, Murli & Samantha? It’s Christmas day! What happened with the time?

Ralph, I and the pussycats Murli, Samantha and Sonic wish all of you wonderful friends a merry Christmas and wonderful holidays! Hope you’re all comfy, warm & well.

We spent Christmas eve at my Dad’s, enjoying a wonderful dinner and a nice evening together. This Christmas morning, I woke up with a bad migraine and so the presents are still waiting under our little Christmas tree. It’s past 8pm now and we will finally get to it after I send off this little post.

I miss all of you, the blogging and our awesome chats in the comments, emails and by all other means. And reading your blogs of course!

It’s really almost unbelievable how quickly the last months went by since I flew to Spain in July, then Ralph’s, Samantha’s and Sonic’s move to Austria in mid September and since then the prolonged Hotelstay, getting the apartment, and during all that time the government appointments and paperwork. It was just shortly before Christmas, the 22nd in fact, when we got the last important paperwork. Now the worrying and exhausting bureaucracy is pretty much done. What remains now is all part of getting married. We’re a translation away from getting a date from the registry office. This date will likely be about two months out, because their schedule is so full.

So hopefully I will get back to blogging and keeping up with all of you much much more again.

Ralph and I are so happy and every day together is a gift. We’re enjoying every minute together and everytime I go out by myself, even if just for half an hour, I look forward to getting back home to my new lovely family and home of us and our sweet 3 cats. Despite all the worries and the exhaustion of this big change in our lives, especially for Ralph and the cats, it’s so worth it. We will soon be able to recover from it all and get on with living our new life together.

Murli is doing really well! She had a hard time in the beginning, as it was a huge change to her… New home, 2 new cats after being alone for many years and a new human! She was afraid of Sonic and Samantha, but she’s getting more and more used to them. Especially recently she’s getting better and better with them. She’s happy, playing and cuddling, chatting and eating more than enough. She loves to watch the birds and is especially thrilled to bits to have a balcony now! All 3 love the apartment and the windows and balcony are much better kitty TV than before.

I am so happy with our apartment and the area in which we live. It’s safe and quiet and we’re in the city centre really quickly too by tram or bus.

We are having a comfy and warm evening now, enjoying Stollen and coffee. The cats got quite a bit of treats… Murli was after the Stollen and the biscuits my Dad made… Oh dear.

Again, I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas time! Stay warm and enjoy the holidays!

June 30, 2017 Time to let all of you know more about how I found real love

Hello dear friends and furpals!

Only a very few will know at least a little bit about the relationship side in my life. I won’t go into too much detail about myself in that regard, just that I simply never met anyone who accepted me just like I am as a girlfriend. Everyone I got to know, would soon talk about nothing more than the ways in which I needed to change myself and how I would need to accept things as they wanted them to be, since it’s considered the norm usually. Since I’m not the norm, I was automatically expected to be the one to change.

To myself, I’m happy to be as I am, I like myself and am happy with myself. I just appreciate everything that I have and don’t even think about things that I don’t have.  I just concentrate on every bit of good in life, every good day, every good hour, my sweet Murli, Dad and the wonderful friends I have. All these things I am so grateful for.

I lived day-to-day, happy within myself and my life, and did not even consider that I will be in a relationship in the future. Every day, I just went about my life as it is and has been for many years. I take care of everything I can do that isn’t limited by my pain conditions. I help my Dad, and have so much fun blogging, commenting and posting everywhere my friends are. I made many wonderful friends that way and some them I consider close friends by now.

Going about my usual day, reading blogs and comments, I came across a profile picture, Ralph’s profile picture. I don’t know anymore if it was in someones Sidebar with many links to other blogs, or if it was within the comments that I came across the profile picture of Ralph. Somehow, and I still can’t even find the words for it. I was drawn to it instantly. Nothing like that had ever happened, and I saw so many pictures of others online. But with Ralph’s picture, it was more like BANG! And it drew me closer like a massive star.

So of course I went to check out his blog, read many of his blog posts, his comments, the About page. Everything I read on Ralph’s blog, just drew me in even closer. It’s a combination of so many things that are just out of this world wonderful. I commented and from then on, we were posting comments on each others blogs. Over the course of the first months, I fell in love with him and there was really nothing I could do about it, it just kept getting more and more. Though, in my mind I knew I needed to be careful, because I was thinking a relationship would just impossible with me. I also didn’t want someone so wonderful and kind as Ralph is, with so much love to give, to end up unhappy. I worried about this, despite having a very good feeling about it. So I remained quiet about it for months, as I really did not want to cause any upset and emotional turmoil within Ralphs life.

But as the time went by, with us communicating over the comments on our blogs, I just sent an email to Ralph in the beginning of June. I couldn’t take it anymore and just wanted to talk with him more. We had such wonderful and amazing conversations in our comments already, and so I wanted more communication with him. I also sent him a link to my photo album where I have 100s of pictures of Murli, weather pics and cloud formations, and of my city, as well as two pictures of myself, as I just wanted him to see more of my life.

From then on we kept emailing each other long emails, and soon we started having voice calls, a couple of hours long, and every day. In one of the first calls we had, and after a couple very long emails in which we both opened up about what we feel, we became a couple. Every day since, we’ve been messaging, emailing and having calls over the internet. It’s absolutely wonderful! There are just no words anymore to describe how amazing it all is.

I have never in my life felt anything like this. I feel so much unconditional love, and we have been so at ease with each other right from the first comments on our blogs. It just continued on like that, and whatever we did and however we communicated, we were and are always so natural, at ease and comfortable with each other. From the beginning it was and still is like we’ve known each other all our lives already. There is no worry, no barriers, no uncomfortable silence or worries about what to say and what not to say. We both just freely talk and speak our minds, and pour out our hearts. Never in my life have I met someone so similar to myself in so many ways. Our personalities, the way in which we do things, the way in which we just go about our days as well as so many interests we have in common, and the same likes and dislikes. It all feels completely natural and comfortable. My love for Ralph is unconditional, and all I want is a life with us together and the cats.

On July 12th, I will fly to Spain, and stay for a couple of weeks. A time we both await like nothing ever before. There are so many things to look forward to in regards to the future and life itself now. Ralph loves cats just as I do and has two wonderful kitties, which are Sonic and Samantha, and my future furkids and Murlis new siblings. Yaaaaaaaaay!

And as I mentioned in my previous post, a really wonderful thing happened regarding my daily migraines. Ever since we became a couple… my daily migraines have decreased massively. All the things that would normally trigger migraines, don’t cause them and that’s been like it for weeks now. The only time I seem to still get a migraine is physical exhaustion and heavy lifting. It’s absolutely amazing to me and opens up so many new possibilities in life. I can’t remember when I ever felt that good physically and it’s just stunning! It’s beautiful!

Ralph is such a wonderful, loving and kind man, and I still just can’t believe my luck. I feel like I’m the luckiest woman ever and I can not wait for us to be together in person soon!

We don’t care about our age difference, it does not matter. We fit together so perfectly, so smoothly and it could not be more wonderful and special. And it’s all very special.

There will be more updates coming, which I’ll post from Spain.

Here are two beautifully written posts Ralph wrote about us:
June 27, 2017 – How Love Found Ralph On WordPress Com
June 30, 2017 – 325 This Is LOVE

Also: yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaay! So happy!!!! 🙃🙃🙃🙃😸💕

Ralph, me and the furkids

June 17, 2017 Hey sweeties! Update about what was going on with us.

June 16 and 17, 2017 Important Update

Hey my dear furends! It was a couple of things. First I was just really busy, & then our internet was having problems. Connection would be there, then gone again. Yesterday it was gone completely. And I needed to safe my remaining data for my 2 mobile devices internet. It’s working normally again normally it seems.

The important/serious part of the update comes now
Wednesday night at 8pm, police were suddenly and quietly positioning themselves in my street & neighborhood. No sirens, nothing. Really quiet. No one knew what was up. They told all the people to leave the pubs and restaurants, and leave the area or go into their buildings. The street was eerie & quiet. There were many police cars & the special unit that usually always comes for more serious things was there too. They had the big guns out.

They closed off all the streets around us and put their own police vans and cars into the streets as additional barriers. After they had done all of that, I saw a policeman from the special unit walk with a second one through my street. One was carrying that special bag that gets put over things that are suspected to be explosives. Those bags are able to contain the blast and any shrapnel and things they put into those self made ones to hurt people even more. Then I knew something was wrong. But still, I thought maybe they just found a lone luggage standing around somewhere and people got worried about it and called the police. Things like that happen and of course they always have to assume it might really be dangerous. I really thought it must be something like that.

But the next day (Thursday) I heard that we had an actual terrorist b.mb threat, that was apparently prevented thanks to a person from the middle east, who heard about a plan for this somewhere and called police right away. This might have really prevented something from happening, because police were here so quickly. Maybe the extremists who had planned this thing, where prevented from doing anything thanks to police being here. The attack was apparently planned for around 10pm, but police had already been here at 8pm, after the person had called them about what he heard. It was supposed to be an attack right here in my street. There’s a big church right near me and we had an important Christian holiday. Maybe that’s why.

On Thursday police were there all day too and they were there during the night too apparently. They still had their police vans as a barrier in all streets leading to my neighborhood and my street. Only pedestrians were able to pass. It was also because they didn’t want someone attacking with a car. My church had a lot of people there due to the Christian holiday. Buildings like ours had their entrances protected by a police van right in front of the entrance, and a couple police men. So no suspicious people could get into the buildings & do something in them possibly. There was lots of police all around us. Really a lot! On Friday it seemed it was all back to normal for the most part. They are still patrolling more than they usually do, but life started to be lived again normally. There is an event on the other side of the river (Our building is next to the river) and I saw that they have put their police cars there as barriers again, to prevent anyone from trying to attack with a car again.

Unfortunately I had a migraine on Thursday, and I felt extremely exhausted, because I had to haul stuff with some friends. The last bits of my stuff that a friend had stored for me in their storage room they didn’t need. But they move out and so I had to get my stuff. And I still felt really really exhausted yesterday. So that’s why we weren’t here really.

I am so sorry my dear friends and furends. I really am. I thank you all for your sweet comments. I also thank you all really really so much, for always being so understanding towards my frequent migraines and being offline often because of that.

Murli & I love you all💕 Thanks for being such wonderful pals!

June 3, 2017 Happy Caturday sweet furends!

Hey furends! Where do I even start after having been busy so much that I just didn’t manage posting. I guess first of all, we are both doing well! Murli is happy, talkative, playful and cuddly as always😸 The weather changed from a mostly cool spring, to summer heat within a short period of time. Of course with the usual high humidity we always have in summer. It started to warm up in mid May and on May 19 we had 84°F or 29°C, but it cooled down the next day due to a cold front and the temperatures remained in the lower 70°F or lower 20°C. On May 29, the temperatures went to 84°F or 29°C again and by the next day they increased to 89°F or 31°C. At first it wasn’t really that humid, and so it was not really uncomfortable and we did well with it. It didn’t take long however, for humidity to rise to 80% and more, especially in the late afternoon and during the night.

So Murli and I are currently adjusting to the temperatures, since we are not used to them yet. The temperatures later in summer will be a bit higher, with often 95°F or 35°C with high humidity. There will be days where it goes up to 100°F or 37°C. Murli lies on the cool floor during the day now,  or she naps at the open windows. When I get into bed to take a nap, she will jump into bed right away to nap next to me, but after a while she’ll feel too warm and she gets down on the floor. The thing is, she’ll come into bed again and again, because she really loves to sleep next to me. But she always has to get down again, since she’s too warm. I gave her a thin bedsheet. It feels cool to the touch and is made of linen. I use those in the summer all the time. I put a couple of them on her daytime nap places.

Here is a video of Murli from today at 10am.
The birds are very active, and the south windows are just comfy to 
relax on. I made it so she has shade there for most of the day. Murli is
chatty like usual. She talks like this with me if I cuddle and pet her, 
and anytime I interact with her in some way. I talk to and with her all day,
and we're both very chatty MOL!

Yesterday in the early evening at about 6pm, a bad thunderstorm came through, with lots of hail unfortunately. The hail started shortly after the rain had set in and it kept going for good 10 minutes. After that the hail stopped, and the rain changed to a light rainfall. But the frequent and closeby lightning kept going till about 8pm. As always, I had to get Murli off the window, because she loves watching the hail. I’m always totally protective of her, and don’t want her near the windows when its bad. You never know if the glass could break if the hail gets bad enough (happened last year to many windows in the street). After I got Murli off the window, I started filming. And at that point, the hail increased as well.

In the beginning of the video, I added a short time lapse and a few photos I took 
before the actual rain and hail started.

Thankfully, the hail wasn’t that bad all over the city. Because I was really sad at first, thinking the newly planted flowers on my Mamas grave and my Grandparents grave were now all destroyed. Dad went there to take a look today, and they were all fine. A friend of our family told us that the hail was pretty much harmless a in other areas of the city. So glad for that!

As for today… the weather was sunny again, as well as humid and hot. But we took a nap during the hottest part of the day, and have a comfy afternoon and evening now. Murli also got one of her favorite treats, which is Turkey ham. She prefers Turkey ham over normal ham… by far. She absolutely loves it. And I love making her happy!

Also, this weekend is a long weekend, because Monday is a holiday (Whit Monday). We make it a relaxed but fun weekend at home. Murli already had her FridayNightBagPawty yesterday. For today, she’ll be getting a new bag! It’s from Aldi, and bigger MOL! Of course there will be pictures of it all😆😸

Happy Caturday to all of you lovely furends!💕 We send you all love & paw hugs! Thank you all for reading and posting those sweet comments! You’re all wonderful!😽😘💕
