Furry weekend again


Friday, I could come back from work directly. I ate and did the chores for a few hours, also packed my fursuit and did more stuff. Then, I used my computer. Later, I went to the coop to buy something for the dinner. Then used my computer again until Anita came. We started to cook together and then we also ate. We started to tidy up and then we watched TV. Anita left and I finished to tidy up and clean. Then, I used my computer some time and went to bed rather late.

Saturday, I woke up at around 10, had a small breakfast and did some chores. Then, I watched TV and did other stuff, then got ready and met Anita and Toxo downstairs. We went to Bern by car. We tried to park in the parking of the train station. It took us more time than expected, but then it was okay. Then we walked to the cellar of the restaurant in the old city and we were a bit too late, but not the last ones. I said hello, talked and then started to change. We started the walk at around 3PM but had to go back at a certain point because of a demonstration. We still walked around the old city until the Bärengraben for almost two hours and then came back to the restaurant. I changed back and then talked, then we left with Jacky and all 4 went to a small Chinese take away to have an early dinner. Then, we left and walked to the parking again, Jacky went with us there and we said bye. Then we left and Toxo drove on the way back. We arrived at around 8PM. I emptied the case, did other chores, fed the cats and had a shower, then Toxo came. We had beers on my balcony and smoked shisha. Then we went back inside because it was getting cold. We watched videos on my TV and then it was 1AM, so he left and I got ready to go to bed, it was quite late.

Sunday, I woke up at around 10:30 but stayed longer in my bed because I wasn't feeling very well, I think I had too many beers... I did some chores and had a coffee, did more chores and used my computer later. I used it mostly the whole day and played with Davinci Resolve/Fusion but also did other stuff. I also ate a bit, but I wasn't too hungry. And I pet my cats and played with them too. At 7PM I cooked  some rests, ate and then watched the news. Then went back to my computer. I used it for the rest of the evening, had a shower, put new sheets on my bed and used my computer for a short time and then went to bed not too late.

Friday, I could come back from work directly, but first went to the UBS to take Rand for south Africa. At home, I started a wash machine, then ate and started chores. I did quite a lot, washed more and also vacuum cleaned and washed all the floors. I packed my fursuit and then, I relaxed at the computer. Later, Anita came and we went to the Qualipet. I bought quite a lot of stuff there. Then, we went to the Fust to get the new printer for Anita. Then to the Coop, where we bought stuff to cook for the evening and I also bought more stuff for myself, including beer. Then, we went to Anita's place to bring the printer (I transported it). I also reaped a few peppers and then went to my place. I first did a few things and then I started to cook a chili con carne, Anita also helped. I had a beer during this time. Then we ate and after that we watched TV. Anita helped then to tidy up and then we watched TV more but she left. I watched the TV for a while and then I finished to tidy up and then used the computer for the rest of the evening and had more beer. I went to bed a bit after midnight.

Saturday, I woke up at around 9AM. I did some chores and had a breakfast, pet my cats and used my laptop and then got Ready. Anita came and we went by car to Rothkreuz where we met Shadow, Neo and Flint. We went to a Landi to buy a few things to eat and then we waited for Kitwana who came by train. Then, we went by car to a restaurant on a hill (after 30min car) and we waited there and talked. Suddenly, we got a phone call so Kitwana and I put our fursuits on. I took me some time but then I succeeded. We all waked where the children who have cancer would come in the sports cars and we waited. They came and waved when they were driving in, then gave Sugus and later chocolate. We moved around to give chocolates and played with the kids and interacted with them. We got photographed and filmed. Then we distributed ice cream and played more. In between, we went to the cars to make a break and to drink and then came back again. We gave more chocolates and played with the kids. Some were tough and full of energy! We then waited until the kids went into the cars and drove away, we waved at them and also made high five. When they were gone, we walked slowly to our cars but met some people on the way. I removed my suit and took some time, then I talked to Kitwana's dad and talked with the others. Then we left. We took a bit more time, because there were traffic jams in Zürich. Anita brought me home. I put my suit out of the case, then had a shower, did some chores, used my laptop a bit and then went with Anita to her place, by car. At her place, I helped to cook a rösti, it took more time than expected. I also had a beer. Then, we ate and after eating, I helped her to install her new printer, via WiFi and it went pretty well. I also installed a driver on her phone, so that she can print from it. I had another beer, we talked and relaxed and then she brought me home, we were tired. At home, I didn't do much, just got ready to bed and went to bed a bit after midnight.

Sunday, I woke up a bit before 10AM but stayed in the bed and used my phone. Then I got up, did some chores and then had a breakfast at the computer. I used my computer and did some more chores later, I also pet my cats and played with them. So I used my computer most of the day, but did many things in between like more chores or eat or play with my cats. At 7:30 I watched then news and ate the rest of the chili con carne and then back at the computer, I ate the rest of the rösti. I spent again most of the evening at the computer, had a shower, used the computer some more and went to bed at around midnight.

A week of holidays [Aug. 27th, 2018|01:45 pm]
Tambako the Jaguar

Friday was the last day of work. Afterwards, I went to the acupuncture. At home, I ate the rest of the dinner of Wednesday, and then did the chores and packed for the weekend. The evening, I didn't see Anita and didn't eat a lot, so I had time for myself. I used the computer much and also watched TV. Of course, I had a couple of beer and didn't go to bed to late.

Saturday, I woke up rather early, had a coffee, fed the cats, finished to prepare my stuff and then Anita came. We went by car to Meirigen and in the car, we talked, I used my phone and laptop. We arrived at the tipi village near Meirigen (had to walk 10 minutes from the car park and the village) and talked to the guy there and chose a tipi. A bit later, we left again and went by car to the Aare gorges, pay the entry and visited them. We walked to the end and back and I took many photos with the D850 and the wide angle lens. When we were back, we had a lunch at the restaurant there, I had a salad from the buffet and a beer. Then, we took the car again and went up a narrow road until a restaurant where we parked and then walked down along waterfalls. Anita stayed then at a place and I went almost to the base of the waterfall so that I could take some nice pictures. I came back to Anita and then we walked to the car, but we had to wait at least 20 minutes until a truck blocking us drove away. We went to the center of Meirigen and went to a tea room. We wanted a dessert with ice cream and meringue, but it was about to close, so I just took a cappuccino and a mineral water. Then, we walked in the village and went to see the outside part of the Sherlock Holmes museum and Anita took some photos posing with his statue. Then we went to another part of the village and sat rather long on a bench and observed a bit people of a wedding. Then, we looked for a restaurant and found one. I ate meat and potatoes from the grill and salad. Later, we left and went to the car and then to the tipi village. We sat down with the other people there as the night was coming and we talked and played cards. Then we went to the tipi and prepared for the night. I also took a long exposure photo of our tipi. Then I brushed my teeth but didn't have a shower and went to sleep to our tipi.

After a not too good night, we woke up at around 8AM and then went to have a breakfast outside, which was nice. We took the time. Then, we packed and got ready and later, we left. We took the car and went to Brienz. We spent around one hour and walked in the nice village and visited some shops and also walked on the shore of the lake. I took a few photos there. Then, we took the car and went to Thun. There, we found a parking house and also visited the town, walked around, took photos and then we found an Italian restaurant. I had a pizza, a salad and a beer. Later, we walked back to the car and went back home through Bern, we also stopped on the way to buy drinks and snacks. I arrived at 7PM at home, if I remember right. I did my chores and for the rest of the evening, I used my computer and also watched a bit TV.

Monday, I woke up rather early and took it easy. I had a breakfast, then did some chores and later, I used my computer most of the time, but also pet my cats, did more chores, ate a bit, etc. Then, I went to cycle around the lake. Then, used my computer and got ready and went to Anita's place with the bus. There, I took care of the pepper plants and then we ate together something simple but good. I also had a couple of beers. Then we relaxed, talked and I used my computer. Back home, I used my computer a bit, had a shower and went to bed not too late.

Tuesday, I woke up early, had a coffee and got ready and then took the bus to Stettbach. There I bought a coke and some pastry, then took a train to Winterthur, waited and then took another one to Frauenfeld. I arrived at the Plättli zoo at around 9AM but had to wait until I could buy the ticket. I went to see the lions but didnt't see the pumas. Then went to the other part and pet the friendly male camel. So I spent most of the day walking around the zoo, between the two parts but the animals weren't much active. I didn't see the pumas, or at least not well to take photos of them. I also took some drinks but nothing to eat. Only after 4PM, I saw the puma cubs and took a few pictures, but still nothing really extraordinary... I left at 5PM. In Winterthur, I went to eat at the Mc Donald's and didn't need to take a train later. I was at home a bit before 7PM. I did some chores and then used the computer for the evening, I also watched TV if I'm not mistaken. I had a beer (or two) as well. I took a shower and went to bed not too late, because I was tired.


Wednesday, I woke up even earlier. I got ready and went as well through Stettbach and Winthertur (also had to wait there for a while), then to Gossau and then to the Walter Zoo. Quite at the beginning, I saw Armando. We took photos of the tiger cubs together, since they were quite active. We walked quite around their enclosure since they were moving, but I got a few nice shots. Then they calmed down but we still waited. Then, we went to the leopards and the chimpanzees and then tried again to wait for the tigers to get up, but no success. So we went to have a coffee at the restaurant, then walked around the zoo and took a few pictures. We went again to wait for the tigers to move again and later (around 1:30PM), Armando left. I walked around the zoo and took more photos, but also looked if the tigers were active, but no luck. Then I walked a bit around and left at 3PM. I came back a bit before 5PM. I did some chores, used the computer (I copied the photos to the computer) and then Anita came. We talked and relaxed a bit and then we went to the coop near my place to buy stuff and then slowly started to cook pasta and a tomato sauce with many ingredients. We ate outside, I also had a beer. We talked much. Then, we stated to tidy up and watched TV for a long time. Anita left and I finished to tidy up and used the computer. Then had a shower and went to bed.

Thursday, I woke up at 9 and started to wash my clothes. Then, I had a breakfast and then did some chores and later, vacuum cleaned. Then, I continued the wash, went to the Migros to buy much stuff, then finished the wash, got ready and went with Anita by car to Glattfelden. We went to a quite isolated small house outside the village where there were mini pigs. We looked at them and took photos from outside the enclosure until the woman who owns the pig came with her daughter. We went inside, talked and started to take photos of them. There were also 5 cute piglets. We pet the pigs, talked more, etc. Then the woman and her daughter left and then we stayed there and took more photos and also pet the pigs and observed them (also like two males tried to mate ;) We left and 30 minutes later I was at my place. I did a few things and then had a shower and changed my clothes, because I was stinking from the pigs. Then I did some chores and then used my computer. At around 7PM, Anita came and we went to the Qualipet, I needed some cat food and Anita got in love with two rats. Then we went to the newly opened coop of the Volkiland and Anita bought a few things. We came back to the Qualipet to take the rats and we brought them to Anita's place. Then, she took care of her new rats, etc, and during the time I took care of the pepper plants and then I ordered food for us. Later, the food arrived and we ate, we talked and chilled and then Anita brought me home. At home, I used the computer a couple of hours and then went to bed.

Friday, I woke up at 7:30AM and then had a coffee and got ready and a bit before 9, Anita came and we went by car to Mulhouse through Basel. We arrived a bit before 11 and there were quite many people. We first went to say hello to the camels, and then the normal tour to the arctic foxes, polar bears and then big cats. We stayed there a while and saw the new young lions but not that new clouded leopards. We took photos of the tigers and snow leopards too. Then went to the lynxes, Pallas cats and wolves. I could take a few pics of the wolves. Then back to the big cats and then to the other animals like meerkats. We stayed a while at the maned wolves, then to the monkeys and red pandas. Then walked to the food stand and I ate a crepe with a mineral water, it was also nice to sit down. It was getting warm. Then we left a bit earlier as expected, because the wasps were annoying. We went back to the big cats through the other way and I only took a very few pics. Anita wanted to have a tour in the small train, and during this time I took photos of the big cats, especially the Amur leopards. I saw the male clouded leopard on a platform but it wasn't worth taking pictures. Then I saw Anita shortly, and then took more pics of the big cats. Then, a bit after 3PM, I went back to the entrance where I met Anita and went together to the car. We went to the Super U supermarket and walked around. I especially bought Alsatian beer, some soaps, also some chips and sweets and finally a half Munster cheese. Later we payed and went back to the car. We drove back to my place but it took more time than expected because of lots of traffic, well, it's normal for Friday evening. I arrived at around 7PM. I did some chores and had some of the rest of the pasta from Wednesday and a few other things. Then, I used my computer for most of the evening and also pet my cats. I took a shower and then went to bed rather late.

Saturday, I woke up rather late. I had a small breakfast and then did chores for a long time. Then I went to the bancomat and then to the village fest to a stand, to take some cat food I ordered and then talked a long time ago with the woman I saw there. I talked with the guy of the That food stand who also owns the Thai restaurant direction Dübendorf. I walked around the feast and then came back home. I finished the chores and then went used my computer a couple of hours, I had enough to do. I also ate a bit and had a tea because it was getting cold... Later, Anita came. We talked and sat on the sofa, for almost 30 minutes and then went to the feast. We first went to the post because I had to throw a letter, then we looked around waited in line to have some Thai food. We went inside the Zwicky Halle to eat it and I also had a beer. We talked, used out phones and also listened to the band playing live. Later, I took a raclette even if I wasn't really hungry. About one hour later, we went back but on the way we saw Toxo. He came shortly to my place because Anita had a jacket there and then she left and I went with Toxo to the feast again. We first had a beer where the tables were and then went to the bar behind. We first had a beer there and then a caipirihna. We talked much and looked stuff on our phones and looked the people at the bar.

Then I came back home, started the chores, ate and then continued the chores for many hours. Then my brother called me saying that he couldn't come today because he was sick, so I didn't do all the chores and used my computer a couple of hours. Then, I went with Anita to the Waidhof restaurant (actually my brother and family should have come) and I ate a big cordon bleu with rösti as usual, also with a salad and enough beer.

A bit later, I prepared the brunch and we had a good and big one and then I tidied up and got prepared and we took the bus to the street parade, of course there were lots of people on the bus. I took a six pack of beers with me. We arrived at Stadelhofen at almost 3PM but we still could see the first love mobile. But we were on a place with lots of people and it was hot. We moved to the other side of the street but it was even worse, so we walked a bit further and there weren't too many people. We saw a few love mobiles and then walked further where there were stands. We walked to the main station and then along the Bahnhofstrasse. We had an ice cream and then walked to the train station again and took the next train and then came back home with the bus. At home we relaxed a bit and then prepared the aperitif, also started to prepare the Lasagna. Then, Anita came and talked with my brother and family. I continued to prepare the lasagna, Anita came to help me and when it was in the oven I finished the aperitif and prepared to eat, but the guests also helped me. We started to eat quite late, at 9PM, but everybody seemed to appreciate the Lasagna. Then we tidied up and prepared to sleep. I took a shower and went to bed before midnight.

Then Anita brought me home and we transported a mattress in the car. I brought it up to my apartment and then did chores for some time. Later, I used my computer. I watched and started to Photoshop the pictures of Saturday but also did other things. I had a shower, put new sheets on my bed, used my computer for a little time and went to bed not too early.

Weekend in Munich with Speedy [Jul. 30th, 2018|01:58 pm]
Tambako the Jaguar

Friday I came home before 1AM but had some delay because the train line between Dübendorf and Schwerzenbach was blocked, so I came back with the bus from Dübendorf. At home, I did some chores and then I ate and the continued and vacuum cleaned. Later, I packed and did the last things and waited until Anita came. She came a bit before 4PM. We stopped to tank and buy something to drink and then drove direction Munich. It was quite hot but the AC in the car was good enough. The traffic was okay but we had to wait at the border to Austria. Then we stopped after the border to buy a highway vignette and then drove further. Then, we arrived in Germany and later in Munich, with some delay but still not too late, so at 8:30PM. We first went to the Pension Lutz. Anita called a woman to give us the key and then went to Speedy's place. We said hello to him and his mother and stated to eat dinner: typical white sausages and Pretzel and typical sweet mustard. And of course a couple of beers! Later, we went to the Nymphenburg castle by car and we found a place where I could take photos of the lunar eclipse. The photos weren't too bad. We stayed there quite long, until a part of the moon was again lit by the sun. We went back to Speedy's place but didn't stay too long. Then he drove us to the pension and there we installed us in the room. I took a shower and went to bed a bit after midnight.

Saturday morning, I got up at 7:40 and stayed a bit in the bed. Then got ready and we went to have a breakfast at around 8AM. Then went back to the room to take the stuff and went by foot to the Gern metro station where we met Speedy. He helped be to purchase a ticket to the zoo and then I went alone there, I needed to change only once the metro and then walk a few minutes to the zoo, but that wasn't complicated. I paid the entrance and walked through the zoo. I arrived at the tigers and took photos of them in the old part of the enclosure and saw they now have wolverines instead of snow leopards. Then walked to the lynx and other animals and then to the lions and went inside the tropical house and saw the fruit bats and the fishing cats. I bought something to drink. Later, I went to the baboons. During the day, I mostly moved from the lions to the tigers and also to other animals. Later, I also went to see the apes and later the wolves. I also once had a pretzel and a beer and later an ice cream. I could take some good pictures, but also not too much. But I walked around quite a lot. I left a bit after 6PM, went to the metro station and came back with the two lines, the same I took to go to the zoo. At the Gern station, I met Anita and Speedy and we went to his place. There, I relaxed and had a drink, then late we started to eat meat from the barbecue and also some salad and more. Then I was really full. Then, it was getting fresh, so we went inside. We started to play a card game all 4 and it was quite funny. Then it was around 11PM, so we left and Speedy brought us to the pension. I had a shower and got ready for sleep and went to bed a bit before midnight.

Sunday, we woke after 9 but didn't get up directly. Then I got up and got ready, but wasn't feeling that good. We had a breakfast but I didn't eat that much. Then, we took all the stuff in the room and left the pension and went by foot to Speedy's place. We had something to drink there and talked quite some time and then we left all 3 by car and went to have lunch at the Königlicher Hirschgarten. It took us some time to find a parking spot in one of the streets. It is the biggest Biergarten in Bavaria. I had some nice meat dish with Spätzle and mushrooms and it was very good. I also had a beer even if I wasn't feeling too good. I payed the bill and then watched shortly the deer in the enclosure and then walked back to the car. At Speedy's place, we make some photos of us tree and then had the dessert, it was a strawberry cake and we had cream with it. We also had a coffee. Then, it was getting late, so we gathered our stuff, said bye and hit the road. In the car, it was first quite warm but the AC worked well and it was getting better. There was lots of cars on the road but no jam. We stopped along the road to buy something to drink and eat and then we had a jam just before the border to Switzerland. But then it was okay again. I arrived home at almost 7:30PM and then did about one hour of chores and pet my cats. Then I used my computer for a good part of the evening. I had a shower and used my computer again and went to bed before midnight, because I was rather tired.

Tambako the Jaguar

On Friday, I could go home after work, which is rare. I bought some stuff at the coop on my way and at home started the chores, then ate and then continued the chores. I vacuum cleaned, then cleaned the floors and finished the chores. Later, I used my computer for a couple of hours and then Anita came, we talked. Just after, my cousin came with his new girlfriend from Poland, Ania. We talked and they get installed into the living room. Later, we ordered food from Nesti and talked more. When the food came, we ate and talked more, then I had a couple of beers. Anita left, we talked more and then we all got ready to sleep (made the bed) and I took a shower and went to bed after midnight.

Saturday, I woke up before 9 and went to the bakery to buy bread and croissants, then I slowly started to prepare the brunch. Later, we ate the brunch together and talked a lot. They got ready and started to tidy up the stuff from the brunch. Then, they left to go to visit Lucerne and Zürich and during this time I finished to tidy up and also did some other chores in the apartment. I mostly used the computer that day but also pet my cats, did more chores and went outside to buy stuff at the coop and also to bring stuff for recycling. Then, my cousin and Ania came back at around 7PM, then Anita came just afterwards. I saw stuff with her and later we all left and went in Anita's car to the Schnitzelhuus in Oerlikon. We all ate a Schnitzel but with different sizes and I took the biggest one. We stayed quite long and talked and at the end Anita an I payed the half of the bill. We came back home and Anita said bye. At home, we all went quite soon to bed. I took a shower before and was in my bed at 11:30, because I was tired.

Sunday, I woke up at 8:45 and used my phone and started to prepare the brunch. We ate at around 9:30 and afterwards I tidied up and we left at around 10:30. We went to the Technorama with my cousin's car. There, we visited a big part of it but not everything, because we'd need much time, but it was fun to try the experiments, there were a few new ones as usual. We stayed there until 3:15PM and were at my home around 30 minutes later. My cousin and his gf got ready and then they left, I accompanied them to the car. Then, I started to tidy up the apartment, especially the living room and did other chores. Then, I used my computer, but also took photos of my cats, played with them, ate and did more. After, I took a shower, used my computer for a short time and then watched TV and went to bed not too late.

Warm weekend [Jul. 16th, 2018|03:39 pm]
Tambako the Jaguar

Friday, after work, I went to the acupuncture. Then, I went to Schwarzenbach to buy 3 different coffees and some sweets. Then I walked to Stadelhofen and went back home. At home, I ate and did chores, but I didn't need to vacuum clean, because I already did it on Wednesday evening (because my cousin came on Thursday evening). Later, I used my computer (didn't want to go to bike because I was quite tired), instead I had a beer! Anita came quite late and we went to her place. She cooked and during this time, I took care of the plants (one of the yellow peppers were already ripe), cleaned the table outside and helped her with other things. We ate and I had a few beers and relaxed then, but I was again quite tired. Anita brought me home, I had a shower and went to bed a bit late.

Saturday, I could sleep longer, so at least until 10, but stayed a bit in my bed and also pet my cats. Then I slowly did some chores, had a breakfast on my balcony, did some more and then used my computer for a few hours. A bit before 3PM, Anita came and we went to the Volkiland. First to the Qualipet, then to the Fust and then to the Coop. We bought stuff for the Lasagna of the evening and I also bought stuff for myself. Then, we went to Anita's place and I helped her to transport the stuff to her apartment, then I had a coffee, looked at the plants, used my phone, pet Tigi, etc. Then, we went to my place. We unloaded my stuff and put it into the apartment or cellar. I did some chores and then started to cook the Lasagna. We ate at around 8PM. We ate outside. Then we tidied up a bit and we watched TV, then Anita left. I finished to tidy p and watched TV and later Toxo came with his shisha. We smoked and had a few beers and talked a lot. He left at 12:45, had a shower and went to bed at 1.

Sunday, I woke up at 7:10 and I was feeling not too bad. I had a coffee and got ready and then took the bus to Stettbach where I bought me a breakfast. Then a train to Winterthur where I had to wait some time, then a train to Frauenfeld and then a bus to the Plättli zoo. When I arrived, the puma cubs were a bit active, so I took some photos, also of the lions. But then they started to calm down. I stayed a bit to see if something happens and I also took photos of the tamarins. Later, I walked around and saw a young male camel. I went back to the pumas but not a lot happened. So the next hours I waited until the pumas (or lions) do something, but also went to the other part of the zoo and still took some photos, but not a lot. I also could pet the male camel which was quite friendly. Later, the pumas were active again and I could take some cute photo, at least from one. Later they were playing together, so I could also take photos of both together. Then I walked around again, took more puma (and lions photos) and did a tour again before I left. I took the bus at 5PM, went to the train station of Frauenfeld and bought drinks and an ice cream at the Kiosk there and then took a train to Winterthur. I had to wait almost 30min there. Then I took the train to Stettbach and the bus back home. At home, I did some chores and took care of my cats. Then, I used my computer for a short time, watched the news on the TV and ate a bit at the same time, and then used my computer for most of the rest of the evening. I started to Photoshop my photos of the day. Later, I had a shower and used my computer again for a little while and then went to bed a bit before midnight.
