A whee bit of Spring for a moment.

Goodmorning everybody!

Told you yesterday, it looked all bright outside and that I might go out for a moment. Well, I did take a little walk, and when I left, the sun was still shining, though less bright then early morning. It still was rather mild, but the longer I was outside, the more the weather changed and slowly I even felt getting a bit cold. So I turned back home and was very pleased to be inside again. But at least we had the impression for a while, that Spring was waiting around the corner.
Today it seems to be all different. Lots of wind, grey, a bit rainy clouds, I think we have the wind now here, that was in Snowy's area yesterday. It quickly took the cross over from England to Holland!

Yesterday I found the bill for the teeth prothese of Jan. Wow, it's not a very pleasant view, the amount of money! But we are lucky, that we have a basis health insurance and that it covers 75% of the costs. So in the end, it is to oversee what you have to pay for yourself. But if you don;t have an insurance, lots of people could afford it, which is the same with some midicines and doctors fees etc. But helth insurances are becoming also more and more expensive and if it goes on like this, I fear that at a certain point, a lot of people cannot pay anymore for it and ehat then? It's a very difficult issue, but it started to go all wrong when they changed it from "state ruled"to "commercial". Already some time ago everybody paid a certain percentage of the wages for health insurance and if you wanted to cover more costs you could take a supplementary insurance, of course payed by yourself. So of course, the ones that earned a lot of money, could be insured for almost everything, but at least everybody had a basic insurance, which wasn;t bad at all.
Now they changed that, it has gone to insurance companies, who also slowly are neginning to decide in which hospital you can be treated and in which not, completely crazy. Government said, because of the competitive character of it it would improve the price. I don't believe a sh..... about it and it isn;t so.
I don;t think that all changes are good changes. Sometimes the "old ways"aren;t too bad, they only could do once in a while with a little adjustment, okay.
Oh my, I am turning grumpy again, LOL!
Better I cheer you up perhaps with two previews of quickpages I've made yesterday for Minky. This morning I didn't see a posting on her blog yet of it, but it might be so later today. She is very busy at the moment with
moving all the creative inspirations to the new place Sulina's has obtained shortly. Now she finally is able to make a special place for the Star Children project. So give her a bit of time, LOL, she has to do all things still almost one-handed!
But here are the 2 previews:

Don't you think they make you feel a bit lighter of heart?
Brrrr, the wind definately is blowing with some force today! Guess I stay inside today, and do some things around here. Just saw in my garden a little sparrow, enjoying the treats I placed in the garden. Well, that's the first guest, I hope there will follow some more.
Today I have the second part of the kit "From Old Books"for you. And then it's time, as always for another cup of coffee. And as the weekend is approaching quickly, I wish you all a wonderful weekend, full of creativity!

Hopefully the cold won't last very long and you can get back outside again. It's a good sign that the little birds are coming back into your garden.

I agree about the way the healthcare is handled. But then, it's to be expected. The folks who make all the rules are the ones with lots of money, and they don't care how it is for the little folks. But I better not get started on that!!!!

You have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.
