This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

No - we still haven't been able to go out into the park!

The snow sitting here since last Friday has been compacted, and there was an addition to it on Monday as well. It has been below freezing, with very cold nights, and the couple of hours of winter sun have not had any great effect on the snow. The icicles have grown, however.

As a few cars here in our little road have made it out into the main road, I grabbed this last opportunity to get a taxi into town and back. The state of even main roads is beyond belief, as were the pavements in town - not that I walked there ...

So Miss Sophie had the chance to chew a nice Christmas bone while I was away, which did not prevent her from dragging my proper hand bag off a chair, knocking over the waste paper basket in the living room, nor from getting a couple of balls out of the box in the hall! And then she ran into the front room as I came through the door, not wanting to even look at the balls she'd taken out ...

Now we're snug and warm, everything prepared - and if the weather and snow allow us to go out during the next few days, we will do so, to feed the ravens.
