Oh, I like the mild weather!

Goodmorning everybody!

The last two days the temperatures were so nice, not yet at the point of "great" but it's still nice.
Between some rainshowers(here not too heavy, in other parts of Holland real raincurtains!), we also have a bit of sun, and that is making it quite friendly looking outside.
I did a few bits and bobs in the house, still have to do some today, but also had time to do a bit of gardenwork and some designing at the computer.
I got a nice mail from a reader, with an advice to conquer my snails. Put a moist newspaper on spots the snails show up, do that early evening and go checking around 10.00 or 10.30 that evening again. They should be on that newspaper and then you can get rid of them. I tried it out yesterday, but it wasn;t yet a overwhelming succes. Yes, there were some on the newspaper, but much more on several plants they seem to like. So I did it the "old-fashioned"way again, by hand, and disposed of many of them again.
Hmmmmmm, it may also have to do with the moist weather we are having lately, they LOVE moist and nice temps with it. Oh well, we'll have to live with it, try out a few other plants and keep smiling LOL.
I could try the other suggestion, dig in some small tins or whatever around the plants, filled to half with beer. Imagine, that you could look the next day at both drawned and completely drunk snails . The drunk ones singing all kind of songs, like "You'll never walk alone",  ROFL!

This morning Jan is going to an agency to talk about, hopefully, a contract for some work in the health care. I reall hope they will accept him, and he didn;t work the last few years, so it's hard to give them some references, the more while the agency he was working for at that time, doesn;t excist anymore.
I'll cross my fingers and hope he will come home with good news.!
When he's back again, we might take a quick visit to the market. I don't need too many things, but we sure could do with some fresh fruit again.
And in the time he is going to the agency, I could do the vacuum cleaning, and I will be done for the weekend.
I will not chat too much today, better show you first now some clusters from Arlene again.
This time she has made them with the "Embrace your Past"kit.

And first I had another kit in mind to offer, but I changed my mind, ROFL. I decided it might be nice to start the weekend with a fantasy-kit, named "Somewhere Magical". I'll give you a previews of just the papers and one of the whole kit.
Nothing left than wishing you all a "magical"weekend.

Well, I always love you scrapping posts and download most of them, but today I cannot because all I get at Media Fire is Preparing you Download (never Download) Tried over and over and no way. Happening at all the scrapping sites that use Media Fire. Bummmmer.

Hello and Thank you for these lovely downloads.
I wish Jan good luck with his trying to get a job too, not nice to be out of work.
I have heard about the beer in containers put in the ground for catching snails as well, whatever you try I hope it works...

Gosh, I'd love to be there to listen to your singing snails. That gave me quite a chuckle. I do hope that Jan made out well and got a job. They are so hard to find as we get older. I'm wishing him lots of luck. Kyra, your new kit is simply beautiful. I will have to pick a photo to scrap with it. The sun is shining beautifully here today. I hope your weekend is great too. Hugs, Edna B.

ROFL, there is nothing better then to read your posts and come away with so much laughter as with the drunking snails singing away. Thank you for yours and Arlene's gifts today. It is a bit of cloudy weather here and possibly it will rain this evening, eventually making it out your way. Oh, the snails will just love that LOL
I did to drop by Minky's blog to read her recent post and felt so sad that such a wonderful lady of spirit should be so possessed with such a mess and so I did say a pray that her well-being be elated and her health and mind return to the loving of life it so wishes to embrace again. It is now dinner time so I say Enjoy, both you and Jan, and your kitties, the days and nights. Thank you again.
