We Played Ourselves

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week we both felt a bit stupid… More than usually…

Here’s what happened:

Yesterday I noticed that out on our balcony there was A LOT of snow. So, I thought to myself, “How can I use this to trick Lola?” Well, I went and told Lola that I had heard from someone that there was a treasure burried in all the snow on our balcony. And believe it or not, she bought it!

I then stood inside and watched Lola tire herself out over nothing:

 

 

While Sasha was watching me dig further and further into the snow, I got suspicious. I figured that if there really was a tresure then she would want it herself! So, I went inside with my master plan figured out: I said to Sasha: “Oh my! That treasure is huge! Thanks for the tip, Sash!” And she said: “Treasure?!? You found it?? What?!” And then she rushed outside.

I was pretty happy at this point. And I did the same thing that Sasha had done when I was digging for nothing, I simply just sat there, in the windowsill and giggled:

 

 

FUN FACT:

David & The Cats

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week it has been very snowy and very dark outside. The sun actually never comes up. We won’t see the sun again until late January.

Since we were feeling a little under the weather, Zoe thought it was a good idea to plop us down in front of the TV and watch David Attenborough talking about birds!

And it actually turned out to be quite a lot of fun! Check it out:

That was fun! It was even fun when thought that the birds had flown behind the TV, and then when we went to check if they were there, we of course felt real stupid!

Yeah! And David is so good at explaining stuff!

Mhm, I know.

*Winks at Lola*

What’s that supposed to mean?!?

Oh, nothing… It’s just that it’s so obvious that you have a thing for him.

WHAT!? Naha!

Oh, just admit it!

Well, alright… I call dibs!

 

FUN FACT:

Male donkeys are called jacks and females are called jennets or jennies. Donkeys are very social and usually live in a group called a herd. The herd is usually lead by one jack and consists of several jennies in the wild.

Ur’in Trouble

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week we have been, or Sasha has been, up to some funny buissness in the fresh snow…

I don’t really know how to adress this following photo, so, I’ll just show you…

Balcony''''''-

As we unfortunately all can so clearly see, Sasha is doing what she does best in the snow. Wink wink.

Um, what? I was not doing anything naughty out there! I was just enjoying the fine early winter morning.

Oh yeah? And I’m the queen of Bulgaria. Take a look at this video I took of you moments after the picture was taken:

EXPOSED!

Halloween Snow

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We have been so worried that we wouldn’t have snow for Halloween. But, our “prayers” were answered, and today we got lots of snow! When we got up thin morning there was just a light sprinkling of snow, but now we ave loads of it! Yay!

Here are some pictures and a video of us enjoying the chrispy frozen rain:

What was up with that last one Lola?

Haha, don’t ask, don’t tell!

Ok, you goofy little fluff ball!

We’ll talk about that nickname later…

But hey, Lola, what are you gonna be for Halloween?

Huh, that I have not thought a lot about.

Maybe we should do one of those cute but scary Pinterest DIY couples costumes!

Oh, Sasha, you are so funny, but you don’t need a costume to look scary!

Ok, that one was called for. Well played my friend…

FUN FACT:

When vampire bats feed, they use their teeth to shear away hair or feathers from a small spot and then cut into their victim’s flesh with their sharp incisors.

Windows

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We have been sitting in the window watching the snow fall. Yes, snow, on the 7th of May.

Our faithful readers will know that we sit at the windows a lot. It’s actually quite nice and peacefull. Here we are a couple of days ago, before the snow came again:

Sasha_Lola_window_lr

What I like the most about windows is that you can kind of be outside while still being inside and that Zoe thinks I look very pretty in the window.

Sasha_curtains_lr

What I like the most is that you can look out but everyone on the outside can’t see what you are doing on the inside!

Umm… But, Lola, they can.

What?

Yeah, everyone on the outside can see what is going on on the inside.

Are you sure?

Yes. One hundred percent.

Wow. Well, that changes everything! Windows are even cooler than I thought!

FUN FACT:

Cats rarely suffer injuries when they jump through windows — because they rarely jump if the window is too high. There is a name for what happens to cats when they fall from heights, it’s called high-rise syndrome.

Ends and Odds

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We have been looking back at some of the little kooky things we’ve done this winter.

We investigated this really stupid cat toy:

I dug in the snow:

*Note: The door sill is about a foot above the ground, so there was a lot of snow out there..*

And this week I watched a really smart crow solving a complicated problem on tv:

I  think that crow is smarter than you, Sasha.

No comment.

FUN FACT:

Crows are emotional animals. They react to hunger and invasion by vigorously vocalizing their feelings. They display happiness, anger and sadness.

Mystery Snow Sculpture

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Just yesterday we had a major snow shower! It’s been really fun because we have had abnormally little snow this winter so far. And apparently it’s been fun for the humans too! On Saturday morning Zoe and her mom went outside in a jiff. They started to build something out of snow in the back yard. We went to check it out — Umm, I went to check it out because you were too scared because you said that what they were making looked like a huge frog.

Naha!

Yeah!

Ok, FINE! YOU went to check it out then… jeez.

cat_head_snow_5

Well, we still have no idea what it is… Is it a frog? It it a dragon head? Is it a two humped camel? An alien? Is it Jabba the Hut, that thing form Star Wars? What is it? It has whiskers so it can’t really be a frog. Can you readers help us figure out what it is?

FUN FACT:

Wood frogs can survive more than 60% of their body freezing for as long as two weeks.
