Aby-a-Day – 2 Juni 2020: “Face masks in public spaces do not provide any greater protection to the population” (Cartoon Tuesday)

I have been very frustrated at the fact that Sweden doesn’t think masks work to control Covid-19. The State Epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, has said repeatedly that “masks don’t make sense” and has literally scoffed at the very idea of wearing a mask in pubic.

So, since I have been using my Izaak Baby Yoda and Zak Toothless as my Facebook userpic and cover photos…I took out a little of that frustration by putting masks on their faces.

Didn’t work. I am still frustrated. And I am still wearing my mask.

Aby-a-Day – 17 Maj 2020: An Angel watching over me (Swedish Sunday)

I fall asleep watching television pretty much every night. I never see the end of movies we watch.

I guess Angel decided I needed some company and settled herself on top of the big sofa cushion and joined me in my little nap.

Aby-a-Day – 3 Maj 2020: Just some cats outside in springtime…(Cinema Sunday)

Yesterday, we took the cats outside for some exercise. We’ve had some days of rain, but even though it was a bit cloudy yesterday, the cats wanted to go out, so out we let them…

Lorelai, of course, LOVED it.

As did Alfred.

Dashiell, as I posted yesterday, had his own kind of fun outside.

When Izaak wasn’t striking poses…

…he was exploring the great outdoors with Rory.

I wish I could be as joyful as Freddy running outside in the daisies.

Here’s a short video of the four of them outside.

Aby-a-Day – 2 Maj 2020: Dashiell the tree hugger (Swedish Saturday)

I took the cats (sans Angel) outside today whilst Björn was fixing our bikes.

Dashiell and Izaak had so much fun playing around the trees.

Zak did that thing where he runs up to a tree like he’s going to climb it and then, at the last second…doesn’t.

dashzakoutside_2413

Look at Zak running off in another direction. This photo makes me laugh everytime I look at it.

dashzakoutside_2414

LOL @ Zak!

dashoutside_2416

After Zak ran off, Dash spent some more quality time with his tree…

…and then he decided to head off towards the lake. Dash is getting braver everytime he goes outside.

Aby-a-Day – 5 April 2020: More fun outside in the sunshine (Swedish Sunday)

Today I am sharing the rest of the outside adventure photos I took a couple of week ago but never posted. Starting with Dashiell and Lorelai outside.

I could have sworn I had already used this series of Rory bounding down the hill…but evidently I never did!

Same thing with these two of her loping along the walkway. They’re great! How have I not used them?

roryoutside_1409

I love this one of Rory watching birds fly overhead.

Björn took these two of a very determined Izaak.

Zak and Dash are such buddies.

Our upstairs neighbour, Oksana (Markis’ human), loves Freddy because he is so cuddly. Apparently Markis is not much for snuggling his humans.

freddyoksanaoutside_1404

She loves the fact Freddy lets her just hold him.

freddyoksanaoutside_1405

She used to come downstairs just to get some cuddle time…haven’t been able to do that in a while, though.

It’s fun to watch them chase each other.

And to finish the collection, a couple of very cute portraits. Here’s Zak in the sunshine.

Freddy joins Zak in his sunbath.

And last but not least, Angel and her shadow.

Aby-a-Day – 22 Mars 2020: Lorelai and the Geese (Cinema Sunday)

It started with Alfred.

He’s the first one who ran towards the lake.

But Lorelai took it to a whole other level.

She decided to HUNT the geese. Who probably outweigh her. Here’s a video of Freddy, but mainly Rory, stalking the geese.
