Looking For Spring...

Usually in my weekend posts I share with you some pristine pictures of the nature that surrounds me. Or of the stunning views out of my windows, capturing the beauty in plants, trees or the sky.
However, this would mean sharing yet a few winter pictures and I assume everyone is about to be fed up with that.

As I dislike to keep my posts completely picture-less, I did upload a picture as seen here above. It depicts a view I show rarely, although it deserves to be seen. Taken out of my kitchen windows, one can glimpse the sea in the distance. A view obstructed by birch trees in the summer, but absolutely magnificent in winter.

As for the rest of today's post instead of a collage, I decided to share with you my first small cinematographic attempt. It is not that good; still, I hope it will make you smile.

I think that the star of my film needs no introduction and the clip itself explains the sentiment.
All that remains for me to do now is to wish you all a lovely weekend - from all of us here in the white house on a hill.

Hilary said...

Very clever and well done. But you can't fool me.. I know cats. Batcat was really only contemplating his next nap. ;)

Jill said...

I LOVE the fact that you can see the ocean from your kitchen window. THAT ALONE is HOPE in the midst of winter blahs!

AND, I always enjoy seeing Batcat and his wonderful, luxurious life...even HE longs for spring!

Dear Zu I loved that. It would be wonderful to see the water from your window. I love the water. None around me now though. Batcat has the right idea. Basking in the sun would be great. I always enjoy hearing from you and visiting. Thanks dear one for stopping by. Blessings

I have always wondered what cats are thinking when they sit and stare out the window so thanks for the movie!

But I must take issue with you living on a hill. Everyone knows Denmark absolutely and completely flat. *ducking and running*

I love that you have a view of the sea from your home! That must be very special. Are the beaches you go to that near by?

Well done you and Batcat! What program did you use? I have Windows Movie Maker, and guess I should give it a go some time. I love your text over the film and the choice of music... what a creative woman you are. Of course Batcat is a born star.

Doreen said...

good job on the video! love the credits at the end. our winter is hanging on way too long also. just had a couple more snow storms this past week. I don't have my speakers hooked up yet so couldn't hear the song, (cannot find them yet is more like it!) they are packed away somewhere safe. :-)

Ahoj Zuzko. Jak pak se ti daří?? Mě se daří docela dobře. U nás už taje sníh a jaro už se kvapem blíží. Už se těším na teplejší dny. A hlavně, že den je ode dne delší. No prostě, že je déle vidět. A tak mohu být s Matýskem déle venku. Olympiada už se blíží ke konci. Ráda se v televizi dívám na sport. A Česko získala pár medaile. Ahoj Radka.

Kath said...

Oh dear, no signs of Spring here in England, just rain and power cuts all weekend!

Brian Miller said...

ha. fun vid....you gotta wonder what goes on in their little heads...no spring here either...hope you have a marvlous weekend!

LadyCat said...

Bravo...a star is born! That is a very cute video and Batcat is a doll.
Great view...how lucky you are to be near the ocean : )

sprinkles said...

Thank you for your advice. I tried to download the link you sent and while that worked, I still can't watch videos. :( I will do a little research to fix it because I REALLY want to see your video! Especially since I saw in the comments that Batcat is in it!

Zuzana,
Lovely post. Bat Cat looks so sweet. He looks like what we would call a "Tuxedo Cat", mostly dressed in a black tuxedo with the white shirt showing through at the neck and possibly white paws. Very good camera work. Hope you have a lovely weekend too.
Kat

Batcat is a star in the making. He appears to be an old pro at film making, so natural in front of the camera! The moment when he thinks he's spotted a leaf bud or maybe a droning insect is well acted. Bravo!

Claus said...

I LOVE IT!!!
It's really, really great!, and the star is fabulous as well! :-)) I want to make one of Lucas&Mateo now! :-)
A great video for the blues of winter (and the song is completely summer to me).
Have a great weekend Zuzana!!
*hugs*

Betsy said...

I'm so very jealous of your gorgeous view out your window! OH my!

Your kitty is just adorable. Don't you just love the personality of a cat!

Susan Deborah said...

Zuzana:

What if Spring is a wee bit late, you have your creative prowess to keep you warm and cozy.

Liked your small video and the Star is puuurrrfect!!!!!

Joy always,
Susan

P.S: Who is the singer in the video?

Susan Deborah said...

Zuzana:

Got the singer. Thanks.

Susan

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

Yes, I am looking for Spring too! Love the handsome and so dignified Batcat!

A Grand Video Zuzana!
Good Wishes From Stellan Skarsgård (*blushes*)

Cottage Garden said...

It did make me smile! What an absolute star Batcat is - he is such a natural in front of the camera. I loved this Zuzana - a brilliant idea and so very clever.

I'm envious of the view from your kitchen window - the sea looks so blue!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I missed you posting today!

Beep said...

Cheered up a lonely early eveningtime for me :) Cute!

Diane said...

I feel just like Batcat :(

Cathy, Hilary, Jill, QMM, Keera, BPG, Doreen, Radka, Kath, Brian, LadyCat, sprinkles, Kat, Stevie, Claudia, Betsy, Susan, C&V, Eternally Distracted, Mel, Philip, tony, Jeanne, Michael, Margie, Beep and Diane – Batcat is absolutely proud to have received so many compliments on his acting. I have a feeling that from now on he will behave slightly *diva* like, demanding special treatment.;) Now when he is a star and all.;)

Thank you all for your very kind words on my cinematography and I am also happy to hear that you enjoyed my sea view. It is indeed very tranquil and soothing to just rest your eyes on the blue body of water from time to time...

Thank you so much for stopping by – your visits always make my day.

Xoxo,
Zuzana

Nessa said...

That's so funny. I feel bad about posting any more "snow" pictures.

Nessa, I think snow pictures will have to be posted at least until the end of March. But hopefully with less frequency.;)xo
