Do we have secret gnomes in our house???

Goodmorning everybody!

Yes, we are up real early again, cause we are waiting for a carpenter to come.
Let's start at the beginning.
Friday we had the guys from the gas company for making the new pipes. They were real nice guys, cannot say anything else. At about 3 30 afternoon they were done.
They had to saw a little bit to make a hatch a bit larger, but the "boss" of the group said they could send a carpenter of the company who would fix it for us. Nice, of course. But we also need in fact a new one in our sitting room(there was one, but when our floor was put on these guys didn;t pay attention and covered it with the parket). As we had to go under the floor to check all the pipes of the central heating system, we asked the guy of the gas company if perhaps the carpenter could make us a little hatch. He said, we could ask that and mention his name, and that it probably won;t be a problem.
So let's hope it will be done.

Now the most amazing thing that happened this weekend. You know we were having trouble with the central heating thing. I had to refill the system about every 4-5 hours, which isn;t normal, of course.
Then Saturday morning I woke up, looked right away at the central heating, and yes I had to refill it. Okay, I did so. The checked after a few hours and ............................................ the pointer was still at the same spot, as it normally had to be. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm??????
Then again I checked after two hours. Nothing changed.
That went on also on Sunday, and even this morning it was still at the same place.
Jan and I don;t understand anything about it. Not that we are complaining, you hear! And we still keep an eye on it for the next few days at the least!!!
So I wonder if there moved in a couple of nice gnomes in our house and they were so sorry for us having this misfortune added to a couple of others and fixed the central heating????????
I really have no idea what happened, but as long as it stays this way, we can wait a bit with calling a specialist to take care of the thing. We still will need to call in one somewhere this year, the kettle needs a regular cleaning and inspection anyway.

Yesterday the weather was nice, although bot as good as predicted, at least not in our area. Still temps were real nice, oh what a difference with two days ago. So Jan did a bit of garden work yesterday, I am laughing (inside) actually about it, to see how he took up the gardening, he is doing much more than me at the time.

I'll have to finish soon this posting, because when the carpenter will be here on time, after his job done, we will have to put back all the stuff in place, that had to be removed for the gas company guys. Well, good opportunity to look at it all and hopefully get rid of some of it. Yes, we people keep too much stuff, and often a lot of it is hardly used. So if you don;t use it at least 4 or 5 times a year, you don;t need it actually. After that is done, the house needs a sweep with some water and then also could do with a vacuum cleaning LOL.

I am having such fun maing those Nutshell kits, you know. Of course it's nice they take a bit less time to make than the bigger kits, but now much, really. But I really love making them. I can tell you I already have made 9!!!
Yet, today I will offer you a "normal"sized kit, all in red, named "Happy Moments". And you will get also 4 clusters from Arlene, made with this kit. She keeps amazing me with her creativity.
Have to leave you know, wishing you a terrific start of the week!

I love your new kit and Arlene's frame with the roses is wonderful.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful kits.

I look forward everyday to reading your blog and see if there is something new to download.

I live in the United States (Ohio) and my husband and I were wondering what kind of a heating system do you have that has to be refilled? Thank goodness we have natural gas in our area. We do not have to do a thing but turn it on.

Good morning Kyra:)
I finally got to read several of your posts that I missed recently.I am so happy to know that Jan's back is doing better and he is able to do more.:)
I am also happy to hear that your repairs are being accomplished.Odd that your central heating suddenly works like it is suppose to...but I agree..if it isn't broken..don't fix it yet.:)

Thank you so much for sharing your LOVELY kits with me.So PRETTY!

Huge hugs!

Hello and Thank you for these lovely downloads. I hope all goes well with the carpenter and the heater...

I hope your "gnomes" stay and keep things working nicely. It's good that your weather is finally getting nicer. Parts of our country are battling with two fierce winter snow storms. Imagine!

Your red kit is just beautiful. Arlene's clusters are wonderful too. It's such a nice warm color.

My daffodils are blooming, so I need to go outside and get some photos before the blooms are gone. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

Beautiful - love the red/gold frame and butterflies. Thank you!
I hope your gnomes stay around for a long time. Maybe they can take care of future problems before they happen.

Morning, yesterday was so busy and went by too fast for me to get by and get this BEAUTIFUL kit and catch up with you! Glad the gas folks didn't take too long and got all the pipes fixed. Gnomes? I hope they stay with you and keep the heater working for you!! So nice to have a worry lifted!
Hope your weather holds! Maybe the gardening will help Jan to keep his back muscles stretched while he is healing, just don't do any heavy lifting!!
I had to turn my air conditioning and overhead ceiling fans on yesterday! Was so very humid and way too warm. It was 90F here and to be that today, then tomorrow another front comes in to drop us back into the 30's. CRAZY weather for all this year!
Thanks for the lovely kit and send thanks to Arlene for her lovely gifts as well! Chat more with you tomorrow! Hugs, Mat
