I think we are nuts!

Good afternoon everybody!

Today I slept rather long and then first did the shopping, oh wow, how good of me! It had its reason. Yesterday late evening or already it was night was speed skating again, the sprint 500 mtrs for men. Well, we didn't expect to have somebody on the highest level but still wanted to see how our sprinters did it. Oh my, normally it wouldn;t have take so long but there were great problems in the Richmond oval, the stade were it took place. The Zambonies gave up(the machines that sweep the ice) and all by all, it took ages before the two sessions were done. You know the rule: when something is starting to go wrong then everything goes wrong!
So it was a much longer seat at the tv than we expected. I said to Jan that we were completely nuts to stay up and not going to sleep, as there is always the possibilitie to view it the next day. But.... it's not the same, it's not live! Can you imagine how I am sitting now at my computer???????? LOL! Eyelids are starting to be a bit heavy, so probably I will try to take a nap later in the afternoon. I am glad that this evening the speed skating for women(also 500 mtrs.) is starting earlier in the evening. Hopefully all the technical problems are solved today and I might end up at a more normal time in bed.
Oh boy, the Olympics are wonderful, but it surely is an attack on your normal day rythm, because of the time difference.

I hope to receive this week the last necessary papers from the bank, so that I can send all the stuff to the accountant for the taxes. I really will be gald if that will be done. It's hanging above my head like a big dark cloud filled with rain!LOL. Ha, out of the corner of my eye I see Jan stretching himself out on the couch, so I suppose withing a minute or five he will be sleeping. Yeah, we aren't the youngest anymore, where has the time gone that you easily could survive a night up ??????????
Okay, I have a little freebie for you, it;s the last of the Chamber serie, this time the "Apricot-Orange Chamber".
I;ll see if I can stay awake long enough to do a bit of designing, or may be some challenge. I'll tell you tomorrow if I succeeded.
Now you all have a lovely day.

Don't feel guilty about needing to take naps. It come's with gracefully getting older. For some reason, I have the same problem. lol.

Love the colors in today's kit. I am sitting here and watching big fat snowflakes falling outside my window. Yeesh!! Just what I was hoping for - More snow!!

Have a great day now, hugs, Edna B.
