Isn't it wierd how quickly Christmas is gone again? We are living towards it for several weeks and then there are the two Christmasdays(yes we have TWO) and whoops, now it's Monday and it is done with!
I hope everybody had a lovely Christmas time. And a warm thank you for all your wishes!
We surely enjoyed our Christmas days.
On Christmas eve Jan went for a moment to the cafe( there was the lotery, remember?) and I had a terrific evening! I watched among other things the "Miracle on 34 th street" on tv, popped in on a German channel and heard some wonderful Christmas music, then for a moment hopped behind my computer screen, with a cd of Christmas music at the background, wnet back to the couch and watched some more great programs on tv. Then Jan came home and oh whee, for once he wasn't lucky with the lotery, no prize! I didn't mind too much, to be honest. As it was already past midnight, we decided to open out presents, waiting for us under the tree. We agreed not to buy anything for eachother, but there were still some presents, yeah! all the way from America, from my friend Edna! Soooo sweet of her.
Here a picture of the things we received. The two scarfs really came in handy, we didn;t have real nice an good ones. And I can drink a lot of tea, big box with 100 teabags in ti, wow! in 4 different blends. And I just LOVE my mug with the rose print! Thanks Edna, you've made our Christmas eve!!!
Second Christmas day it was also quiet, hoorray, outside it looked even not too bad, and snow and ice are still melting, for the moment the leak also stopped, so why not be happy?
I did some things at the computer Jan did his puzzles, later we watched a bit tv, and for dinner I had a pastry cup filled with a feral or wild hash (ragout) and then I made my potatoe salad and on top slices of smoked salmon! Yeah, again the salmon, but we love that! So dinner was easy to pprepare, but very tasteful! I can say we had a great Christmastime together!
And now we have to return to the "normal daily life"again LOL.
There are some things to do now, I don;t know if I can manage it all today, but I have another day tomorrow.
I do have to go out, have to get me a medicin at the pharmacy(I've almost run out of one) and some little things to fill the fridge again. Oh there's still enough left in there, but I need some stuff to put on our sandwiches, some cat food, usual things.
It looks better outside for me, there still is some snow but much less than last week, so I hope it will be easier to carry around my shopping car!
Now that the weather is slightly improving here, I heard that e.g. in America and also in the area of my friend Edna there is falling a LOT of snow, causing also problems, and in Australia, Queensland, there suffer from too much water, caused by heavy rainfall! It doesn't seem to be a great time when you speak of weather conditions, hey? Also in other parts of Europe they still have problems with the snow, so I hope for everybody in the world, tat a more"normal"weather will come their way!
Oh, there is an anniversaire to celebrate, the blog of Miram, from Miriam's Scraps celebrates it's 1st anniversairy. You might pop over there to congratulate her with that and at the same time you can snatch a lovely scrapkit she made and offers as freebie there!
Hmmmm, I think I covered all I wanted to write, I suppose, so it might be the right time to go to your freebie here. It's a rather big kit, so I splitted it into two parts, one part today, the other tomorrow. It's named "Memories are Golden"and it's a kit for all kind of pictures and occasions, I hope. I've kept it in a brown colour scheme with a few brighter accents. Enjoy it, I hope.
And have a marvellous day today!
