Step by step progress in the house

Goodmorning everybody!

It was another beautiful day yesterday. Probably today it will be a bit less, there may be a little rain, but it sure is already making you feel a lot better, those few days of spring weather. The last few days Jan was busy re- installing our hifi installation. It's almost done now and that's a good thing. He wants us to find a different small closet for it, hmmmm, perhaps one of these days it will be there too. And remember I told you yesterday I had to do the curtains? Well, the one on the front of the house wasn;t looking good anymore and that's understandable, after the namy years it hang there. But.... I still had some almost new ones in a box, only they had to be shortened a bit. That's a bit tricky, because I am not good at all in these things, and I don;t have a sewing machine. Okay, I sacrifised myself LOL and did it by hand and I also had some clips lying around ( you know, you clip it on the curtain and a little ring can be placed on the rod) and you know what? It worked, so I have an almost brand new, really white and crisp looking curtain on the front window. Oh my, that looks good. Again a little project done!
As I was on my little shopping tour yesterday I went looking around in a few stores and stumbled on a magnificent tool. It's a kind of broom to remove weeds from the terras, it's on a stick with a broom at the end of steel wire and even a little hook for wriggling out the weed that grows in the space between two tiles. Oh gosh, is that a good tool!! I didn;t try it out yet, but soon I will, and I am sure it will work fine. No more kneeling down needed, and that's an improvement first class! I also found two small garden lamps, solar with led lamp for a nice price. They aren't in the garden yet, first we will have to attack the garden and they will be placed when some things are done. I have some garden lamps, but a few died I suppose during the messing around of the guys who made the roofing.
So you could say it was kind of productive day. Now I hope this"flow"we are in, will last for a much longer time, because more things need still to be done.
 In a few days April will be there already. On Magickal Scraps we just uploaded the new daily download for that month. It is another swell collaboration of the girls. I probably will have the preview shortly, Snowy has to make it, together with the slideshow. You definately have to take a look next month at this daily download, I can promise you it is a really great kit!

And what is there in store for you today? It's a little project I was busy on this week. I found a bunch of sites with free content all in the vintage- victorian style! I just love those things so I made something out of the things I so eagerly downloaded. I tried my hand on some bragbook pages and I have 6 in total for you, together with 3 tags. I splitted them up in 3 downloads, 2 pages and a tag at a time. Here's the first one, named Vicoriana 1. Hope you can do something with it. Now I think I will try to continue a bit on the "flow"I still have LOL and will do some more in the house, which is really needed a bit, after the not so good period of feeling low, hahaha. We will have to stay thinking positive, and you know, Capricorns don;t give in so easy, oh no, no way! So we'll see what the weekend brings us and I am wishing you a fantastic one too!
Till Monday then, take care!

Oh my, these pages are really nice, Kyra. They will make a lovely brag book when they are all together.

It's cool here today too, but I know the good weather is on it's way. When it gets here, I shall have to do something about my little garden too. Yours is going to look just beautiful when you finish working on it.

I'm still at work, but I'll be going home in about an hour. I will definitely need a nap later this morning!!

Have a fantastic weekend. Hugs, Edna B.
