Another award and other stuff too!

Goodmorning everybody!

I really wasn;t in the mood yesterday, guess I just had not a good sleep Saturday night and was up early morning again, to make Jan;s breakfast and sandwiches for the road. I did catch a bit of sleep later, when he was gone for work, but it's just not the same a a good night's rest.
But today it's a lot better, slept well last night.
Yesterday evening I got a phonecall from Heidi that they were on their way back home, they should arrive somewhere this morning.  Hoorray, no more fish feeding time.

I want to draw your attention to a new blog, an "old" blog-friend-follower started finally. She needs a little bit of encouragement to hold on LOL, but I think she will succeed. Nice things is she shows somw of her layouts, but also offer some freebies every now and then. So why not take a peep there and leave a little comment for her and perhaps even become a follower?
Just go to Chris's blog,  Chris's design place

Oh gosh, there's another award I recieved, from Mat, of Mat's memories. I first didn't want to do it, but I do really appreciate these and so there we go again.

RULES:

First, you should thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. (ck)
Next, answer the following 10 questions about yourself. (ck)

Then, choose 10 of your favorite bloggers and link their blogs to your post.  Be sure to let them know that you are nominating them for the award. (ck)

Last, be sure to copy and paste the award to your blog! (ck)

THE QUESTIONS:

1.  Favorite Color    Hard, but I think lavender/purple
2.  Favorite animal  I can't choose between cats or dogs
3.  Favorite number  16
4.  Favorite drink   hot is COFFEE and sometimes a Crodino or San Pellegrino(non alcoholic both)
5.  Facebook or Twitter niether one of them, glad I already can keep up the blog
6.  Good Book or Good Movie  also both, but I think good movie now a days
7.  My passion - - lots of them: looking after my hubby, my cats, cooking,scrapbook kit designing, all things nature, gardening etc.
8.  Giving or getting gifts actually it's giving, but as every "normal"person (am I??????????) I also like to recieve them
9.  Favorite Day  I don;t think I have one
10.Favorite Flower; hard one too, but I think it should be the rose.



Okay, I am supposed to pass it on to 10 other bloggers, I will not reach that amount, some of the blog I liked to give it to, already received it(like Mat, Snowy and Edna LOL).

For encouragement I pass it on to Chris, of Chris's design place
A real sunshine blog is Minky's Things
Next one shoudl be of an "old"internet friend Valinda of VJ's Scraproom
Then to Linda, of Random Thoughts of Linda
Another follower , who makes such great pictures and layouts of them, Karen of Time to Digiscrap
And I leave it there, just 5, but that's all I can come up with at the moment.

Seems to be a rather long post, with all the stuff to show, awards to do and such.
I had email from Arlene, with some news about her sister and She's okay with it that I post some lines of that email, to keep you all informed:

My sister is doing really well. They say they got all the cancer. She had her breathing tube taken out yesterday. She is still on strong pain medication & sort of out of it but so far so good. We're all taking turns sitting with her.
I am thankful for all the prayers & that they were answered! She is my oldest sister I was actually the flower girl at her wedding.Thank-you & all your followers for your prayers & caring, it means alot.


She also sent me a buch of new clusters, even today there were new ones in my mail, here the first of the row, two clusters made with The Romantic kit.

Despite of my a bit miserable day yesterday, LOL, I did finish another kit, which will be for later,
today I have one in greenish / yellow colorpallette, named Discovery of Wonder.

 Download    HERE

(I completely forgot to put on the downloadlink at my first posting!!! So sorry)

And slowly it's getting time to finish this post and get dressed and a few things to do. Ironing should be done, pffffffffffffff, and I also have to go to the bank, a bill to pay(yes, still the "old-fashioned way", don;t yet use internet for banking).
And may be we will have a short visit of Heidi, if they arrive early enough today, and I'll have to play Jan's secretary again, checking his working schedule and filling in his available days for the next weeks, but that last thing probably could wait for a few days, because I did that already till the 20th if August. Still I like to be ahead a bit, it can help to get some more hours. This week he has work from Thursday till Sunday( Sunday even a double shift) but he could do with a few hours more. Next week is already filled in nicely, every day a shift, he only has one day off then.
Yeah, he's a hard worker, isn;t he?
Okay, off I go now, wishing you a great day!
