As planned, how wonderful, I went for some shopping on Wednesday. I can tell you I had all sorts of weather during the little trip. At the time I walked to the bank, it started to rain, and turned into wet snow. It was not the weather I asked for!
Okay, it stopped after a while and when I was done at the super, the sky had cleared up, showed some blue and even the sun came out. And then it was even rather nice outside, as long as I stayed into the sun and out of the wind.
Home again I took me sandwich and didn;t do much else LOL.
Some little things, yes, but in the afternoon I sat down to watch a nice serie I like to follow, and some more stuff on tv, soon it was time for dinner and that was the day.
Some good news about Jan. He had, because of his painkillers, some constipation trouble, so when he went to our doctor, he got some medcine for that too. It took some time to work, but hoorray, the last two or three days it is working and it's a big relief for him. I know how that feels, had it myself a couple of times, yak.
It's not all to usual yet, but i's a good start and only willwork "natural"again when he stopps taking the painkillers. He doesn't use them as much as at the beginning, but still needs them at times.
Slowly and careful are the words at the moment. I am already glad that the laxative is doing it's job, poor soul can do without any extra trouble.
Oh, despite of the weather Jan did plant seeds in a lot of pots and it's now an every day round to take a look at them( they are standing at several places in the room LOL), and oh my, you cannot stop nature's behaviour, a lot of them are peeping up already, some grow really with an unbelievable speed!. Okay, that's motivation to endure a bit nasty weather, and I have hopes temps will go up a few degrees next week. Already would be a good thing if the night temperatures stayed above zero.
Oh my, despite of his physical condition at the moment Jan had already some ideas for the garden to tackle this spring. We have a tiny little rockgarden, where I have also the mini-mini-pond for the frogs and toads. Now he came with the idea to move it to another spot in the garden, and rebuild it.
I couldn;t help myself starting to laugh a bit, telling him that all is nice, but that at the moment he was in no condition to do such work, but I also didn;t want to spoil the fun, so I said we probably could do that, but a bit later in the year, when it would be much nicer to be outside.
Still I admire his spirit, not complaining about his situation(although I know he HATES it), no, it's always me who has to ask how he is doing, and have to do it with some reluctancy, otherwise he gets really irritated LOL.
What a sad sight at our half of the street! They started to cut the trees and it really is a pity.
Okay, they will plant back new ones, but it surely is a naked view at the moment.
But Jan had great news too, the other day. He was for a moment looking into the garden and spotted several great tits!! It might not be something special to a lot of you, but it was so for us. Being in the middle of the city, having a cat roaming in it, I thought it was wonderful. Lots of gardens that are still in town, don;t have too much greenery in it, a lot of people remove the planting and trees, put in tiles, because they want to have an easy garden, which isn;t good for the birds and all other creatures.
So if we have visits of frogs, toads and now again from some great tits, I feel happy.
Perhaps I can find a little birdhouse for a few bucks and hang it in the ivy we have at parts of the garden fence. Who knows, may be we will have some tennants there? The cat cannot climb into it, so they would be safe.
Okay, enough rambling done, let's take a look at today's freebie. It is named'What means the Most"and is in soft colors. And oh my, what a wonderful present you will get from Arlene!
She not only made lovely clusters as usual but also gives you TWO quickpages. Yes, I have a lot of previes today. One of the kit, one of the papers, and two of Arlene's work.
I wish you all a spectacular weekend, with a lot of scrapping pleasure!
