We are fish-sitting LOL

Goodmorning everybody!

Friday morning I told you Jan had to work. So I took advantage of the time he was away to do some stuff around here. And he came home all smiling, cause his shift has been an easy one and even kind of cosy. He even had time to have a little chat with some clients.
The afternoon we had planned to go to the market, but as the weather was so bad, we skipped that idea. It was raining almost all the time.
Then late afternnon the phone rang and that was Heidi, telling me they were going on holiday that evening, hahahaha. She though she had mentioned that already to me, but no way! So it was good she made that phonecall. Now we knew we had to check on their house and feed the fish, hahahaha.
The rabbit and bird have passed away, as well as their goldfish, so they have a tiny little aquarium now.(and the doggie of course, but he is going with them).
And Satuday afternoon I went over to give the fish some food. It is easy to take care of them, just every two days a bit of food.
On the way back I bought another pair of reading glasses for Jan. You know, that cheap one you can buy almost everywhere. Yes, he already has one pair, but he liked to have another one, to have permanently in his bag when he goes to work. And if possible also in a firm cover, so it wouldn't bent every time he makes a move LOL!
I just had seen one in a shop and so he is the proud owner of two pairs of reading glasses now ROFL.
It just was € 1,89 all together. Amazing that they can make it for that price.

Yesterday I just did nothing!!! Well, no rummaging or cleaning or that kind of thing. Just spent time at the computer, in the garden and on the couch. Wonderful!
Today however there is need of some action. Not too much but I need a few grocerie things, then some attention might be given to laundry (ironing) and perhaps  a quick sweep with the vacuum cleaner. And if weather stays reasonable, we might go to the market today. I hope it will stay dry, and it would be better if it wasn;t so windy. Oh ad not to forget the feeding of te fish, this time it's Jan's turn.

That was the weekend in a nutshell. Not really interesting, but as a lot of people probably have spent it, or something like it.

Sometimes I really am desparate of what to eat for dinner. You easily stick to some same things, but I  want to try to have a bit of variation in it. Yesterday we had chicken filet, normally I make it filled with salami or ham and mozarella cheese, but this time I cut the filet open, filled it with lots of pressed garlic, some lemon juice to it, some pepper and salt, closed it and wrapped it with slices of bacon.
And prepared it on the oven. Turned out well, but I think we had an aura of garlic smell around us for hours LOL! Together with baked potatoes and a tomatoe salad and strawberries with cream as desert, we had a more than good diner.

Time for the freebies now.
First a wonderful quickpage by Linda, made with the "Sounds of Yesterday kit. You'll have to go to her blog for the download. 

Frome Arlene I have clusters fro the Elegant Wedding kit.
Download     HERE

And the kit is a rather huge one so I splitted it up in 3 downloads. So that will be for the whole week LOL. As I had a bit of trouble with Mediafire on a time I wanted to upload, these downloads are via 4-shared. I know many of you don;t like it, neither do I but normally it should work okay.
So bear with it, and next kit will be again on Mediafire.
Here the start of "The Attic Chest", preview is of the whole kit, in every download you will have some papers and elements.
Have a great day!

P.S.   It seems some of you have trouble downloading 4-shared, so I re uploaded the files to Mediafire.

Your chicken with bacon and garlic seems to be excellent... I'm going to try soon, thank you !
I'm a bit disappointed, because your new kit looks wonderful, and I can't have it with 4shared...
May be one day you could use "box.com"...? it seems very easy, quick, and with no ads.
Thanks to Arlene, the frames are beautiful.

Good morning Kyra:)
I bet Heidi is happy too that she called you and told you about the fish!!:)
Your chicken fillet sounds yummy. I will have to try that some time soon.:)
I had reading glasses in almost every room in the house until I got my glasses with bifocals.:)Before that, I got them from the Dollar Tree store and they worked just as well as the expensive ones...and that way...I could afford to have them in every room.LOL
Your kit looks wonderful!! Thank you so much for sharing pt.1 with me.:)
Thanks so much for coming by and always leaving a smile with me.:)
