We had a nice weekend, Saturday morning Jan had to work, but then he was free the rest of the weekend.
It was still nice weather, although much lower temperatures.
We even had a thunderstorm yesterday evening, with lightning and thunder and even some rainshowers.
There isn't too much to tell, well, nothing real special, although there is something I can tell you from the Olympics. We have won two medals there, a silver for the swimming team on the 4x100 mtr. freestyle estafette for women and a golden one on the cycling event for women, on the road.
Marianne Vos was of a special level there, really a worthy winner of the event.
We did watch a lot of the Olympics, and did you see the opening ceremony on Friday evening??? I found it amazing and wonderful, specially the 3 first parts . Wow, the Brits had really used their imagination and skills. I had a great time watching it.
This morning I read the blog of Edna and she had some wonderful news!! She has a new dog in her life, named Pogo, the sweetest little tea-cup Yorkie you could wish for!!! She has some pictures of him on her blog, but I cannot resist showing you already one of them.
So meet Pogo, Edna's new companion, and I hope they will spent many wonderful years together!

Hey, I've done it, rofl!
It's time for freebies
From arlene I have various clusters, made with various kits of mine.
And there is a kit for you too and after that it will be time for me to slowly get busy around here, some things I want to do before Jan gets home again.
It's a one colour scheme kit, named Innamorato. Have fun with it.
