We were really busy today!

Goodafternoon everybody!

First a sad thing to tell you:
I got an email from Arlene, telling that her sister had passed away yesterday evening.
Arlene and family will have some difficult time now, but at least her sister isn;t suffering anymore. But it always is heartbreaking to loose a loved one.

The reason I am late in posting today is that Jan and I first got rid of all the Christmas decoration.
It took a few hours, but now we have back our "normal"room again LOL!
All is put back in the boxes, out away on the closet waiting for us till the end of this year.
We also dusted the room and a very necessary sweeping with the vacuum cleaner. Pffffffffffff, glad that is done!

It's however not taking so much time as the decorating. Now we can put our mind to other things.
Now it's time to relax a bit, which I do now, and Jan is taking a nap on the couch.
There are still some things left to do, like washing all the Christmas fleece blankets and some napkins and such, but the big stuff is done!
I noticed my Shoutbox has disappeared again. I tried some things but till now it's not coming back. I think it will at some time, sorry I can;t help it.!

I will not ramble long, I think I will watch a bit tv in a few minutes, there is a nice English detective which I like.
Oh my, I almost forget it myself, tomorrow I will have my birthday and I will be 60! No big party, just remembering it and perhaps make something nice for dinner. That's good enough.I just cannot realize I am having that age. The mind isn;t accepting it, and I amglad about it. Although the body isn;t always cooperating, the mind is still young enough, certainly NOT feeling as a 60-year old. LOL!

So quickly now to the freebie. I promised you a wintery kit and so it will be.
It's named "Wintry Cold". Not the case here at the moment. We still have nice temperatures for the time of year, yippee!
Oh, I've made 2 previews of the clusters from Arlene, she made lots.
Have a great day, probably will chat more on Wednesday.

I am so sad for Arlene. I will say a prayer that her heart heals quickly.

May I wish you a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY? 60 is such a good age to be. Except for the body not cooperating sometimes, the mind is still so very young and active. I know some days I have to look in the mirror to realize how much older I really am.

I hope your birthday was fabulous and filled with sunshine and happiness.

You have a great night, hugs, Edna B.
