Now I waited so long to write a new post that I just can bombard you with pictures.

We survived the last snow.



Goku is still with us and he will stay. To be honest, life became much more stressful with him
 but he is so damn cute that we can't let him go anymore. There is still some fighting between
 them but the overall situation is better than some weeks ago and Goku is long not giving up on Hamlet and he seems to feel very comfortable.



The birds on the balcony brought them closer together!

Besides improving our balcony for summer I destroyed our new wonderful coffee table...

But just to make it even better!



Yeah, my first drawer!

We also went to the Game of Thrones  Live Concert but I was a bit disappointed from that.
 Way too little focus on the music itself. But still a nice event.

And we visited the butterflies in the botanical garden. Amazing!





They didn't wanted to sit on me as well. Must be the male sweat...

I would love to have a bonsai one day....

Our french is also getting better and I'm working on my portfolio.
 I picked a theme for it this time. A warhorse tribe. I'm still in the sketching phase.


Oh, and I discovered a new hobby: Micro Macrame. So relaxing. Still need a lot of practice
 though, but fun is fun.

And last but not least I cut my hair again.

So, enough!

Our family grew a tiny bit. 
Have a look!

We named this not so small fur baby Goku because I noticed that he sounds like a little monkey. 
So he got the name of Son Goku, the japanese version of Sun Wukong, this very old mythical monkey king from China. Since we both are fans of Dragonball this matches even better. 
He is 8 months old now.


Well, but things didn't stayed that harmonic between them both. After 4 or 5 days of a relaxed 
new family life Hamlet started to bully little Goku who didn't know what was going on. He had 
to go back into his "safe-room" and there he still is every night and when we are not at home. 
If we can't convince Hamlet in the next two weeks that Goku is a cool guy we will have to give 
him back, with a really heavy heart...

Fortunately Goku is a sunnyboy who forgets pretty fast that Hamlet was mean to him and then 
he plays and cuddles like crazy. And he also loves to watch movies with us

So wish us luck with this. He is way too cute to let him go!

Winter is here. The news warned that it will be a very harsh one and that everyone should 
get prepared. Well, I guess that means staying inside, drinking hot chocolate, playing games 
and ...... learning french.
We already had two power breakdowns and we covered all our windows in plastic foil. 
That seems to be very common here....

Well, that was some days before Christmas!

But I don't care too much about the cold and so I was at an indoor shooting area for air guns 
(which is just at the other side of the street) and we made a funny beer trip to the "Beau's Brewery".

And my crafting streak struck again!
I bought this stuff

And after some hard work and many blisters...

 became this!

And I decided to participate at the Artwar contest from Cubebrush. 
You can take a look at my stuff here: 

Oh, and on the quiet I became Level 28!

So, since I'm pretty sure that I will not post that much in winter I wanted to point to the 
great Montreal-blog. If you are new here, or you need some tips for a short visit or you already 
live here since a while but your ideas for freetime activities run out, this is the site to go. 
It's always up to date and primful with insider tips. I'm so happy that I found it so soon.
