Ecological Footprint

Walking in the snow. Following Mr. Bowie’s ecological footprints wil guide me home and ignite my bones. Giant steps are what he takes. Paws they hardly touch the ground. I hope my legs don’t break.

Enjoy this cold day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

No Planet B

Waiting for spring. And summer. Early morning exercise is good for your heart. Walking in the morning has tremendous cardiovascular benefits, so Mr. Bowie gets the most from his walking routine. But today it seems Mr. Bowie regrets his decision of going outside. Temperatures dropped below zero degrees Celsius and a few cm snowfall is predicted for next Tuesday. This will be our first snow of the winter. Although Mr. Bowie likes playing in the snow, lately he prefers sleeping on the duvet in my bedroom.

Meanwhile, over 12,500 students gathered in Brussels on last Thursday, skipping school again for the second week in a row to march for the climate. “Skipping school? No. We fight for our future,” one sign read, according to The Associated Press. This protest mimics similar climate movements by students in other countries over Europe. One of the most notable young activists is Greta Thunberg, a Swedish 16-year-old who began a strike in front of Swedish parliament last year and has inspired thousands of others to do the same. The students marching for action against climate change will go on until they see real change, according to Anuna De Wever, the 17-year-old instigator of the movement. Respect! The Belgian students are hoping to protest again next week, according to the reports.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Sunday Snowday

Snow! The horror… the horror! This morning, a cold snap resulted in several disruptions on the roads and rail way networks in this part of the world. I had to drive through the snow to see if my Dad was alright. We had lunch together and watched Bear Grylls on tv. I picked up some good advice to get back home safe.

Meanwhile, Mr. Bowie’s wondering what the white stuff is doing in his garden. And why he has to stay inside…

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Hibernation

Dangerous cold, snow, sleet and rain today. No Mr. Bowie, we can’t go outside. It’s even for a furry four-footer way too dangerous. How can I mentally survive winter? Do people really love winter that much? Can humans survive hibernation in good condition? Hmmm. I guess I’ll stick with espresso.

Snow Walking

IMG_7211

Most cats have to travel a long way to the snow fields. Ensure you have regular breaks to stop, revive and survive. Walking to the snow fields can be tiring because of bad weather, darkness and narrow, winding roads. Watch for signs of travel fatigue and stop and rest as soon as you feel tired, Mr. Bowie. Adjust your walking speed to the weather. Slow down when conditions deteriorate and proceed with caution, particularly in snow or ice conditions.
