Who catched the rain, hmmmmm????

Goodmorning everybody!

Ha, Wednesday we did make it to the market. The weather looked quite nice when I was at the computer to post, so I had great hopes for the day. Pity Jan had a longer sleep and got up rather late. Then of course there's first coffee to drink, watch a bit the news on tv, take a shower, then grab a sandwich( and then he often says I am the one that needs a lot of time to get ready for a walk or so!!!!!grrrrrrrrrrrrr).
Okay, still no problem when we finally stept out the door to go to the market. It was a bit fresh, but with sunshine, you could say agreable weather. So at the market we kept our eyes open to see if we could find some speaker-wire, but no, there wasn't. But surfing the first part of the market, the sky was getting darker and darker and yeah, the forecasted rain fell down on us.
Not just a little rainshower, but a real serious amount of water splashed down, and that wasn;t the worst, it even hailed! The good thing about a market is that almost all stands have a roof( from cloth, but made to keep the water away from their products) so we found a good shelter. ROFL, did you ever notice, that when suddenly there is a severe rainshower(or something like it) people are just acting like cockroaches?????? In time of 1 or 2 minutes the crowd is flying to all directions, all gathering under a very small shelter, and if you had the nerve to then walk over the market, it would be a lot easier, cause you could walk where ever you liked, without having to watch your every move, without being blocked by good-willing mothers with prams ( great things, those prams, but a curse on small paths on a market!!!).

It took a while to get almost dry again, and we could continue our market-visit. No speaker wire found yet(I think Jan has to go to a shop for that), but found some real cheap vegetables and some fruit, so the trip had been usefull anyway. And the best part of it(grin grin): arrived home again, the sky had cleared up and the sun peeped through the clouds. %%!!@***""++&&!!!!!!!!!!!! (Fill in the words yourself, LOL).

Yesterday I did go out to do just a few grocerie shoppings, not much, some cat food, a package of sugar, a bottle of mayonnaise, things like that. Oh and there was a nice offer in the supermarket for some great jam, so I bought that, one is made from figs and the other from oranges. MMMMMMMM, I tried the figs, oh, it tasted so good! And I like the one from oranges too, with the little skin parts in it, sweet but also a little bit bitter.
Towards dinner time I made a hotchpotch, mashed potatoes with sauerkraut, and small squares of fried out bacon. A little piece of meat with it and we had a tasty meal. There is enough left of the hotchpotch for this evening too, and you know, the second day it even tastes better. I also like to fry the hotchpotch a bit in a pan and put it on a fresh white sandwich! Easy meal but very nourrishing.

As Halloween is coming near, I thought I might give you my Halloween kit today. I hope it isn;t too scary for your pictures!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Good morning, Kyra. I'm sitting here giggling over your description of the people at the market once the rain and hail started. How true! Your Halloween kit is simply adorable, and oh sooooo scary!! I'm getting ready to leave for work soon. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
