Busy vegetable day!

Goodmorning everybody!

Oh yes, I was a busy bee yesterday. After posting I quickly had another coffee and then jumped into some clothes and went into the kitchen. First turned on the washing machine again, and then put all the veggies on the counter.
Cleaning and cutting time. Pffffffffff. One after another they had their very short cooking time on the gaz and already that took some time. Then had to drip them off and I put them in plasti boxes too cool down.
Waiting for that I could wash all the pans and stuff I used, put them all in their place again and then went into the backroom to do a bit of ironing. Back to kitchen after a while and the maschine was ready with it's load of laundry. So into a big basket and hanging up time. Then I thought it was a good moment to sit down a few minutes. Went back to kitchen to see if the veggies were cold enough, yes, they were, and I could put them in portions into their plastic bags. Left them open to coll off some more, had a quick sandwich, bacj to kitchen, closed the plastic bags, put stickers on them and finally placed them into the freezer.
And then I really was happy to sit down at the computer, believe me!
 Sometimes upi can feel you aren't in your twenties anymore, but we have to accept that and deal with it LOL.
To remind us of that and more, I will post a few wonderful pics and quotes I receives by mail from Minky! That women also has lots of humour!
I just picked out a few, but received lots more.

They are good, hey???????
Today looks to be a more grey day, but you never know around here, there may be some sunshine later today. No matter how it turns out, I still have to go out for some weekend shopping. Not too much needed, but a good reason to sniff some air. And I think that will be all I do today!

I hope they don't have anything too interesting and well priced at the supermarket flower stand LOL. Although it isn;t yet quite the time to plant spring plants outdoors, it's always sooooo tempting, when you see loads of violets, daffodils, and other stuff crying out to you "Buy me for your garden please"!!!
And wheeeeeeee, Jan's tomatoes show growth EVERY day now! Amazing the speed of it. If it goes on like this I think he will have to split them somewhere next week and give them a bigger pot! It's funny to see, that when he wakes up in the morning he first goes to the kitchen to pour a mug of coffee and entering the living room he first goes to check his tomatoes! He was looking very happy yesterday when he could announce that also the sixth little pot has some growing sprouts in it!
I will keep you posted on it, may be take a picture nextr week again LOL!
Now time for a freebie, I suppose. After all the grungy kits I think you would like to see something different. And I have a very bright kit for you, all with happy colours, named "Cheerful Hawaii".
Hopefully it will make you feel a bit lighter on your feet and gives you a happy feeling.
Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday again!

I would have a difficult time keeping up with you young lady! I only went to work today, and that used up most of my energy. I absolutely love those "growing older" quotes and pictures. I especially like the one about the "twinkles in your wrinkles." I smile a lot so that must mean I have lots of "twinkles." Sounds pretty good to me!! Have a great evening, hugs, Edna B.
