Keeping low profile lately.

Goodmorning everybody!

Are you all a bit exhausted of the Christmas shopping? I am glad I did that in parts and that's it's done already!
Well, almost. Only have to do some of the grocerie shopping for it, but that will be around start of next week I think.
Jan and I are keeping "low profile"lately, LOL, meaning we aren;t too active, no, that isn't completely true. We are doing things, but that are the normal things around the house etc., no activities outside, which is understandable too with the weather.
But for a few days that is improving, weather I mean, a few degress above zero at daytime and during the night just may be 1 degree under. Don't get excied now, they expect it to get worse towards the end of the week again.
Still this rather "quiet"time isn't too bad. It gives me opportunity to design again, yes, some inspiration is settling in my brains again, so I did a couple of kits and even a new quickpage for Minky's Fairie Christmas blog. I've made it with one of her angel kits and found a lovely little poem for it:
We watched yesterday the second part of a fabulous program, called "Boer zoekt Vrouw" (Farmer searches Women), kind of dating program for Farmers(also women farmers) who are looking for a partner in life, but seem to have trouble doing it on their own. We have a great host for that program, a lovely lady who is first visiting about 10 farmers, showing their farm and the persons itself and then it is waiting for the post. Oh my, some of them received bunches of letters. The largest amount was around 1025 letters!!!!!!
Now they have to choose 10 out of their letters, and next week they will have a kind of speed date with that women(or men, on women farmer in it) each letter writer gets 5 minutes.
This program is really done in a very nice way, it has been on already several years and the nicest thing is that the host is visiting the farmers after about a year, to see if they are still with the partner of their choice.
And it may be amazing, but from last years series, almost all are still together and very happy, we had a show about that two weeks ago!
Now we are going to follow a few of the new "set of farmers". Of the chosen ones, not all will be in the program, but every now and then she will give an update about the ones not in the tv program and if you like you can follow them on internet too.
It's really a blast of a tv program, mostly because of the way it is made!
It has nothing to do with a normal dating program you sometimes have on tv.
This program is one of the best watched in all Holland! Every time about 3,5 million or may be even a bit more viewers! And that's really a lot over here, when you think that a soccer match of the national team(and that is attrackting really very much people believe me!) is making around 1,8 to 2 million viewers!
 Well, at the most it could be 2,5 million!

So for the next few weeks our Sunday evening is spoken for LOL!

Today will be time  for some dusting, hoovering and such, not too interesting, isn't it? But that are things, that have to be done sometimes. I better show you a preview of your freebie for today! I think it will be another Christmas kit( have some more on the shelf, hahaha), this time one named"Vintage Like Christmas".
Have a wonderful day!

Good morning Kyra. Your new Christmas kit looks wonderful. I agree, it does feel good to be done with the shopping and busy stuff for the Holiday. As for the food, I haven't decided yet what I will do for dinner. There's still time for that though.

Your TV program does sound quite interesting, and different from what we have. I'm waiting for my favorites to start up again. Fashion designs, and Project Runway. I really do love fashion design and the creativity involved.

It's not quite 5:30 am, and I'm still at work. You have a grand day now, and stay warm. Hugs, Edna B.
