This morning I started up the computer, no problem. Then I saw my internet icon didn;t jump to the "blue arrow". Okay, that sometimes happens, even sometimes internet works well even when it seems not connected. Other times I just have to unplug and plug in my internet connection and okidoki again.
Not this morning. I went looking to the little box for the internet connection, with also the telephone line on it and the box had no lights at all. Mostly there are some of the lights orange instead of green, and unplug and plug in is the solution. Not today! No lights at all! That was strange. On the same powerpoint we also have a lamp connected, so I thought: let's try the lamp. Oops, no light!!! OMG!! What now. I immediately had the idea that the powerpoint didn't work for some reason. Already saw in front of my eyes the change of the extension box they were connected to. Or perhaps worse. But..... I got the brilliant idea to check the connection of the plug. Hmmmmmm, it was a bit loose. So I plugged it in well and tadaaaaaaaaa............................ there was power and all worked as it should!!!!!!!! I suppose the plug had been disconnected just a bit because Dikkie Dik is making his jump to the window seat from there, using a little side table that is there. (he seems to hate to move too much if not necessary, although he easily could jump on the windowseat from the floor!!!)
Anyway, I had heartbounces for nothing LOL!
It really is getting wintery overhere! Even during daytime it's a bit freezing, in the easter part of Holland a bit more severe, and it might get even colder during the week. Hmmmmm, no real harm till now, at daytime sun is shining, so okay, it's colder, but dressed well in coat and cap and gloves it even isn;t too bad going outside.
As long as there is no snowfall, or hail or whatever I can digg it.
I was out for a moment yesterday and it wasn;t bad. Got some things done in the house, like preparing the veggies from the market for the freezer, ironed some laundry, dusted the room, cleaned the little windows from one of the cupboards, Jan did the sweep with the vacuum cleaner, so all together a rather well spend day.
Today I really want to take care of the curtains, I saw them from the outside yesterday and oh Lord, they look aweful! And to be honest, infact it is done rather quickly, but it's just the stuff around it that holds me back a little. Have to take the ladder out, clime it and take the curtains off. That should also be a good time to wash the window at the inside, you know. While doing that, the curtains are in the water and when ready cleaning the window, I'll have to take the curtains out, hang them for a while in the bathroom to get rid of most of the water and after some time take them still a bit moist to the room and hang them again. It's best to do it this way, then they don;t wrinkle, you know. Then put the ladder away and such, this always takes more time than you think. But... have to be brave!ROFL.
Oh, about a week ago Jan already planted some tomatoe seeds and the sprouts are aleady coming up. It might be a little early, but they can grow strong and healthy indoors for a while and when the weather will be much more spring like we can harden them during daytime outside and after a bit of time let them stay outside. I hope they will do it well, Jan is like a mother hen to them ROFL!
Well, that's it for today. Today I have, after a long time, again a fantasy kit for you, "Happy Fairy". And I think this Friday I will have my Valentine kit for you. After all, it will be soon Valentine's Day.
Have a wonderful day!
