Winter outside, Spring inside.

Goodmorning everybody!

As almost every morning I first watch the news on tv and read the teletexte pages.
And there are the "funny"pages that I like. This morning there was an item about snow and traffic.
In a town in Holland there is a small street, that apparantly is used often by people to avoid the busy traffic on the main roads. Well, that ofte happens, and we call it "the sneak through routes".
The inhabitants of that street had enough of it, after complaining lots of time at the council about it and that there should be taken measurements against it. No succes.
And now they found a solution: The barricaded the two entrances of the street with large heaps of snow in the shape of whales. That I call creativity!
Now for a few days the kids can play there without danger.
Of course it could be a problem if e.g. an ambulance or fire brigade had to pass the street but the chance that it happens is very small.
It might not be the best solution, but I can imagine the frustration of the inhabitants and then this is a peacefull action , don;t you think?
Good thing or not, I had to giggle about it.

Yesterday I went out and although I hate the mess of the snow and the slippery parts here and there, it was great to be outside, it wasn;t really cold, just fresh and with a little bit of sunshine.
It looks as if today we have some sunshine again, and the more sun the better. The snow can melt and get away, and all transport can work again as usual.

When I was in the supermarket yesterday, I saw they had some sales at the flower department. And I bought three little pots with "Tete-a-tete daffodiles". They are just sprouting, so Jan can put them together in a pot and if they do as well as the hyacinths, we will have some Spring inside our house.

I will be busy in the kitchen for a while this afternoon, cause I want to make lasagna for supper. I will make it with minced meat, fresh spinach leaves, self made bechamel-sauce, some garlic and grated cheese of course and tomatoe sauce too(that one I have ready made in a pot).
If it turns out the way I want, we have a yummie meal this evening.

That's about all for today, nothing more happened which is worthwhile to ramble about LOL.
So on to the freebie, this time "Dark Days of December" with clusters from Arlene.
Hope you can find use for it.
Have a terrific day!

Thanks again for another lovely kit and for Arlene's lovely, lovely clusters too!
Glad you weather is sunny and not too cold. Our weather has all the trees, plants, grass, animals all confused. Even saw some robins this morning and a red headed woodpecker being chased by a mockingbird! LOL
Well, since it is so pretty here, think I will continue with some outside cleaning of my storage units, trash and even some of the created spaces for those outside kitty cats! LOL!
Chat more with you later! Have a terrific day! Hugs, Mat

Your kit and Arlene's clusters are wonderful. Thank you. You ladies do such great work together.

Our weather hasn't been so bad except for the miserable cold! Gosh, I just don't like the cold. Brrrr.

I am longing for Spring too. Recently I ordered some Seed Ballz and they arrived in the mail yesterday. You plant them in a large pot, water them, and they grow. I got poppys and a mix of flowers to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. I will wait until after the middle of March to plant them. Once they get started growing, I will transfer them out to the garden.

Now I must get busy here, have my own post to write. You have a great day, Hugs, Edna B.
