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.
