Walk to Rivendell - Week 9 Report

I would be prevaricating if I didn’t admit that this is starting to be more than a little difficult – not the walking which, despite the weather, is getting easier and easier. But finding something to say; something that would justify my taking the time to write it out and yours to read it. On some days, I feel as if the interminable gray white is turning my brain to slush.

Then on the other hand just when I feel that the only solution is… well I can’t actually think of a doable solution as something like moving back to Greece presents me with the even more difficult challenge of coping with the heat. I’m a Finn; I can’t take extreme heat. So, just when I think I’ll give up and crawl under the bed with Neri until at least May, the sun comes out, spilling it’s irresponsible bounty all over my plants, office and turning Neri (temporally) into a kitten again.

She wore herself out so completely harassing me that she has had to retire for the rest of the day.

But! I have faith the sun will continue to chase the snow demons away, and spring with all its promise will win out.

N. I saw those and knew I had to photo and post them for you.

Sonja - Thank you very much. Maybe my brains haven't gone as mushy as I feared.

Little paws make me happy.
I miss the kitties (I should be getting them back tomorrow).

Glad to be of service. I'm glad you'll soon be reunited with your own little paws.

I love the kitten paws!

The first photo makes me want to set off on a journey of my own...
