A real Autumn day outside

Goodmorning everybody!

It really is a bit gloomy outside at the moment. Rather fierce wind, cloudy, and there's expexted rian too. I pitty Jan, cause he had to go working this morning, he got this shift at the last moment.
Hope he can travel a bit trhough the rain showers.
Monday I went to visit Heidi, just for a talk and to tell her about Dikkie. And she told me that when she said it to Séverine, she was really touched by it.
But all together it was a nice time together, girls talk, you know.
Heidi told me she was looking for an electric bike, because her mped she is driving with now, is a bit heavy for her. So when I heard that I asked Jan if it wouldn;t be a good idea to take over the moped. It would make his work a lot easier, specially when the winds are blowing hard in this time of year. And he agreed it would be a great thing.
I told Heidi and she agreed( and also thought already about it) that Jan had first option for the moped. I have no idea what price she will ask for it, but I am sure it will be reasonable, and she even said that we could pay in parts. Isn;t that nice?

Then I got a not nice phonecall yesterday from a neighbour of hours. We didn;t have much contact, but we talked when we met at the door, and later we even got a key, in case she needed help(she is disabled, and we could help already once when she was in trouble). But last year she broke her wrist and was placed in a care home, and later she also got a new hip. But all lasted and lasted and yesterday she called me with the message she had cancer, leukemia. That was quite a shock, of course. She will go to another home next week I believe, specially for that kind of patients. I will hear a bit more about it when she is settled there, but it's possible, she will not be there for a very long time.
I hate those kind of messages, and it seems as if in this time of the year you hear more of them around you then in other parts of the year.

This week Jan is working almost every day an evening shift. Only today is a morning and Sunday a looong morning shift. I like it better when he works mornings, although it is early rising then, but then during daytime I can do things in the house( I am much more active with that when he's not home LOL), and it's coseir to watch tv together in the evenings. But it comes with the kind of work. I am already glad that he doesn;t work nights!
Oh, we have a new doorbell, Jan found one for a very nice price, so that's done too LOL.
Let's see how long this one will stay working.

I am still in a good designing mood, hoorray, have a lot in stock at the moment. Oh, have to tell you that Linda has made a wonderful quickpage with one of my kits, in sumptious dark pruple!
Take a look at her blog.
(Linda, I have trouble getting mail through to you, They keep it bouncing back. Left you also a message about it onyour blog)

Well, I am in doubt if I will go out today, it isn;t looking too good. Gives me opportunity to do a bit in the house and I can do some computering this afternoon. Tomorrow it wil be hopefully a little bit better outside. We'll see about that.
Now time for a freebie, I suppose.
This will be an Autumn kit, named "Autumn Brings Beauty"(and it sometimes does, when all the leaves are re-coloring and sometimes the sun is shining!), with matching clusters from Arlene.
Have a great day!

We are having our share of the wet stuff too. So I'm hoping for some sunshine for you.

Sad to say, we always seem to get a lot more bad news around the holidays. Maybe if we all could watch over one neighbor, there would be less bad news. That's a nice thought.

Now I'm off to see about cooking up some scrambled eggs, green peppers, and potato for Pogo and me. Mmmmm. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, EdnaB.

Good morning Kyra:)
I was able to catch up on your blog again.:) My back is having a fit so I won't be long this time.:)
I am happy to hear that Jan will get some better transportation thanks to Heidi!! He will be able to get his orders delivered much quicker this way...and probably not be as tired at the end of the day either.:) What did you find out about the spot on his leg? You can email me and tell me if you want.Hope it was nothing serious.:)

Thank you soo much for sharing your LOVELY kits with me and Thanks to Arlene for making wonderful clusters for us from your kits.:)

Yes! Christmas will be here before we know it. I must get myself into gear. Will call my DIL and find out what they all want as their gifts from us.Then I will get them what we can afford.LOL

Hope you have a FANTASTIC day my friend!

Thanks for stopping by again! LOVE your visits!!

Thank you again for another lovely gift from you and Arlene. I'll bet Jan would love the moped over a regular bicycle! Don't overwork on the house, I try not to anymore...LOL! Actually my house is clean top to bottom right now as the medications I am taking for my low back is keeping me awake for a couple of days at a time, so....I clean when I can't sleep! I know I'm weird right? LOL! Have a terrific day, see ya on Friday! Many hugs!! Mat
