We still had a lovely day yesterday, although it was seriously colder as the day before. However, we couldn't complain, lots of sunshine, here and there some clouds, I even believe we had some raindrops.
It's looking nice today again, a bit less wind, always a good sign. So today will be time for some groceries shopping again, and may be even drop some bills waiting to be payed, at the bank.
But yesterday Jan and I took a "quiet"day LOL. Jan finally could finish a rather thick cross word puzzle book and started even in a new one, with more difficult ones. Which I noticed, cause he asked me sseveral times for a solution. Okay, I found a few, but also used internet, LOL! Sometimes you just cannot figure out what word they ask and then you have the wonderful website for searching "synonimes".
WHile Jan was puzzling I had a ball at the computer, made ALL the pages for the project I am working on(HUGE!!!!!) and even started on some elements.
So it was a very productive day, yeah!
I just visited Minky's blog, and I urge you to take a look there! She has posted several previews of small children books she wrote and illustrated herself, and oh my, these are just WONDERFUL! She made them to support the Sanctuary project, and sells them for just the ridiculous low price of USD 2,00!!! This lady is sooooo talented and has such a miraculous imagination and inspiration, and all that combined with a pure good heart, she is a very special person! Please pay a visit to her, look at her wonderful work(she also has lots of free gifts for you, as you should know by now) and if you want to have a special present for your child or grandchild, you should consider one of her lovely little books!
What about that as a promoting speech,LOL!!!!
This week started another serie on our crime-net. It's anohter French serie, and very up to date, looking at all the disasters taking place around the world, this one concernes a serious accident at a chemical plant. I found the description of it in Dutch and blessed are the translation sites, LOL! You have sometimes change it a bit, but it's become a rather comprehensible texte, hahaha.
Description of Series Shock Waves
Just when a school class is visiting an industrial chemical complex in a small regional town in France a large explosion destroys an adjacent shed. The intervention of a courageous young woman and the quick arrival of firefighters at the site enables them to save the lives of many of the children and to get the blaze under control. Despite this, some of the children - only 10 years old - and an employee perish and two others seriously injured. The material damage is enormous, both for the plant and the surrounding buildings. From that day there is a before and after the accident for every inhabitant of the city. The local police immediately launched an investigation into the cause of the accident. Meanwhile, local journalists are beginning to theorize about possible causes. Inside and outside the factory, they are hunting for someone or something to blame. Each episode of this series focuses on one of the people involved in this terrible disaster. Through the eyes of the five suspects and the detective in charge of the investigation, the pieces of the puzzle fall into place slowly the truth finally bring to light.
So it's quite a catching serie, and it makes you think again about all the dangers there are of those kind of fabrics, and often built too close to towns. And that, whenever BIG money is involved, precautions and safety rules are forgotten, or not at the first place of the list. Very frightning.
Well, really time now to get something done here, I will post a freebie now. It's another try on the Steampunk thing, I named it "Change of Time".
You have all a fantastic day!
