Santa payed me a visit!!!

Goodmorning everybody!

What a busy days I had this week, but I am happy with it.
Wednesday afternoon I went to that "further away"supermarket, and came back with a full shopping car, and all is nicely put away in the freezer, all in smaller packages, so it will be easy to use.
Jan went to the market that day too and came back with some mandarines, bananas and some veggies.
I still have to prepare those veggies for the freezer, I think it will be for today.

Yesterday Jan went to his specialist to hear about all the results of tests done. She was moderately satisfied, but still has not a clue, why he still retains too much fluid, although it is not in his legs anymore, only his belly, although a bit less than when it started. He looses a bit weight, but not because of the fluid disappearing, it's "normal"weioght loss, but she doesn;t like that either. Still no idea how come. It isn;t because he doesn;t eat, he eats as normal, so dilemma too. LOL.
And she has no explanation yet for him feeling so tired. Now she took another blood sample, wants to check it on other values and also wants to contact a hospital in another town, and it might be Jan has to go there for some tests. It's not too far away, just about 20 minutes by train.
One thing is for sure: his specialist isn;t giving in easily and wants to figure out what is the cause.
Well, we just have to be a little longer patient, and hopefully he soon will feel good enough again to go to work.

But....also nice things occure!!! Yesterday Santa delivered a box filled with all kind of lovely presents!. Because Santa is very busy, he couldn;t wrap all the presents, but who cares?????
All the lovely things are now under ou Christmas tree and it looks so cosy and complete.
Still, Santa loves a little joke too, he did wrap one present, just for Jan. LOL!
It brought a big smile to his face and he promised not to open it until Christmasday!
I already sent my Santa a mail with big thanks, but want to do it here once more.
Thanks you Santa, for your lovely gifts! Even our cat received a Christmas present.
It made our day!!!!!
I will make a picture of it and post it on Monday.

As usual there are still some household things to be done, but I will do it slowly, and got all done hopefully by the end of next week, LOL. Yes, all has to to be done with a few days before Christmas, at least as much as possible. I am already looking forward to Christmas Eve and day, there are a few things on tv that we like to see. I think that most of the time we will be watching Germa television, because there they have some wonderful Christmas shows, all with Christmas carrols and other nice music, and on Dutch tv there will be a couple of real nice detectives too, so our days will be filled, I am sure. I just love to hear Christmas music, it makes the holiday complete.

Time to skip to the freebie, no more bla bla for now.
Are you still in need of some Christmas kits? Well, I have another one for you and lots more to come, grin!

This one is named "Santa is Smiling"( and he did to us, sending us the Christmas presents!), and you will love the clusters and page border Arlene made with it.
Have a wonderful day and weekend!

It's been raining in so many parts of the world, that's probably why Santa's package got wet. He tries to keep things dry, even though there is no roof on his sleigh. lol.

What a darling kit! I don't know how you come up with all these wonderful kits, but they are all so beautiful. I'm going to have to a bit of scrapping.

Amazing that they can't find out why Jan is retaining fluid. But it is good that his doctor continues to look for the reason.

It is early morning here, and shortly I must get ready to leave for work. groan, groan.

You have a wonderful day my friend, hugs, Edna B.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful kits this week, and thanks to Arlene for all the beautiful clusters she made !
The papers are really gorgeous, thanks again!!
It's very kind of you to share your photos, and your home is well decorated! Your Christmas tree is lovely, and I like very much the blue hat that Edna sent you (I wish I had the same...)!!!
So I'm impatient to see what Santa brought you, LOL!
Christmas music brings a kind of magic, and I'm fond of it too!
Last Christmas I didn't know you and I was just scrapbooking with papers, etc... but this Christmas, with all the kits you share with us, it's going to be a marvellous Christmas!!
I'm very happy, and I don't need other gifts!
Thank you Kyra, and have a wonderful weekend too!

Good morning Kyra, I am glad to hear Jan's swelling is going away. I am praying he gets completely better soon. I love this new kit and Arlene did a great job on the clusters. Thank you both for all the wonderful kits. I have been going back through the posts from the beginning of your blog. Sorry I missed so many of them. You had some beautiful kits I wish I had gotten. I love all of your work. Thank you and happy Weekend to you....
