How time really flies.

Goodmorning everybody!

Again another day is waiting. As every day I watched a lot of the Olympics and I keep admiring all the sporters. What I also like to see is horse riding, the dressage. And it may be boaring that I mention it every time when we got a medal, but yesterday was a very beautiful one of Ankie van Grunsven on Salinero. Oh boy, was that an elegant and really super performance. She and her horse Salinero did win the gold medal, but they were really honestly the best of all. All the movements were so perfectly matched to the music, it all fitted together, unbelievable.

Yesterday I had a yummie dinner. In fact very simple. I made a potoatoe salad. For the dressing I had some olive oil, a bit of basilicum vinagar, some mustard and mayonaise and pepper and salt. In the sald I had(how funny) potatoes, spring onions, little block of cucumber and two almost hard boiled eggs. And I bought an already grilled chicken, which I only had to warm up in the oven. As almost always I made too much so today I can enjoy it once again. It is sometimes hard to invent something different to eat. But it often happens, that I see some cooking program on tv and see a recipee tthey make and Then I make my own variation of it. And there are always lots of books I have or there is the the internet with soooooo much recipees. But I am happy I don't have to brake my brains today for the dinner.

And how time really flies. I just discovered that coming Sunday will be the 24th of August. And then I will be married already ONE YEAR! Can you imagine??? No big partie or anything, just nice together at home, but I must try to make something a bit extra for dinner, perhaps. But it is unbelievable all passes by so quick. I stll remember well all the excitement of preparation and me, boaring you to death with all the bla-bla of it. LOL!

Today I have a rather neutral kit, it suits a lot of different kind of pictures. I named it "Cherished Memories". I am sure it will be useful sometime. The wooden frames are from Anna of and the ribbon frame is from Sylvaine from Wonderful ladies, who make it easier for us, sometimes, lazy "designers".!!

I did get a question yesterday if I would write perhaps some tutorial on how I am composing and inventing my kits etc. But I am not doing that. Sure I am flattered that people think I could do it. I think I am still in the learning process myself and I don;t feel up to it. So I have to say sorry, but no thanks. And it would also take too much time and I already am so often short of time to do all I want to or HAVE to. !!!

Well, here is the preview and I hope you will enjoy the kit. Nice day to you all. Oh, I must say this before I finish. Go over to the blog of Linda of She just returned from the wedding of her daughter and she has already some pictures of her married daughter. Just look and you will have to admit it is a beauty of a bride!!!

My dearest friend,

You are just the SWEETEST lady I know and with such a BIG (Russian-Dutch) heart! I LOVE to read about your daily events and battles with the city council, dinner menus and such! I feel as though I am right next door! Oh gosh, would that mean the city would wish to paint my apartment too? LOL! Funny how intrusive the government can be and as you eluded to, dare we ever try reciprocating!

HAPPY FIRST ANNIVERSARY to you and Jan!!! There should be dancing in the streets and fireworks for such a LOVELY couple as you two are!

Kyra love, thank you SO much for stopping by and leaving me such a BEAUTIFUL message on my CBox. I just had to come and congratulate you on your NEW lightning quick computer to find that I am also congratulating you on one year of marriage on Sunday!!! WOO HOO!

We had such a marvelous time at my daughter's wedding and it still all seems a bit surreal, but I know that as I am able to scrap her wedding photos, it will begin to SINK IN deeply! I am SO blessed as now both of my girls have WONDERFUL men in their lives. Now, for my boys ... hmmm .... quite another story! He, he ...

Have a GORGEOUS day my friend and I shall be catching up on things over the next week or so.

Linda :)

P.S. That potato salad DOES sound yummy - just might have to give it a go!
