We have sun, but temps are low!

Goodmorning everybody!

Oh whee, I kept my promise to myself to get a bit busy yesterday. among other things, vacuum cleaning, turning the washing machine and did the ironing.
I was a bit inspired by the sunshine we had. But when I stepped outside in the garden, the wind was blowing and that was COLD.
it didn;t stop Jan from re-potting a lot of the seedlings, I only saw later that he had overdone the work outside and that's resulting in a bad feeling back. Well, I can understand he wants to try it out, but I think I stop warning him for this, as he isn;t listening LOL.
Already a lot of the seedlings could do with a big pot, so now we have the big ones standing in the room, awaiting better temperatures so they can stay outside.
This week it will not be, perhaps they can go out during daytime for a few hours, to get used to outside conditions, but towwards the evening they have to come in, cause at night we still have a couple of degrees frost.
But perhaps, perhaps next week it will go better, if the forcasts will be fulfilled LOL.
At least no more frost at night, at daytime a whee bit higher temperature and wind changing to south or south west. That should bring really some spring.!

Today Jan is going to our doctor to talk to him about his back, he also will need some more painkillers, although he takes them less. Still needs to take them once or twice a day, otherwise it's no fun at all.
We just will have to go through this period, hoping it will go better, but it is a slow process.

I'll have to go out today for some grocerie stuff, will be good to sniff a bit of fresh air, must think of something to eat for this evening, have no idea at the moment but that will pop up in the supermarket, I hope.

Today I will share with you a kind of new sort of kit, that after a long thinking time got the name of "Nutshell-kits"Each little kit will have around 3 papers and about 12-20 elements in it.
I think one can make several layouts with this, but also will be nice for just one you just need to make.
So every now and then you will have a smaller kit, but I hope you don;t mind too much.

Must wake Jan now, so he can take a coffee and a sandwich before going to the doctor.
Wish you all a very nice day, oh, and keep up the little prayers for Mat's sister, Kathy. You can read an update about it on her blog.

Sad to hear that Jan is over doing it in the garden. It's hard to take it easy when we want to be active. Hopefully, his back will be straightened out soon.

I like your idea of Nutshell kits. Just enough to make a really page or two.

Today our temps will be in the 40's (F) again, but will start warming up a bit tomorrow. (right now it is 32 F) Ugh!!

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Thanks for the nice little kit! It almost makes it easier to make a LO when there aren't so many choices.

I love the nutshell kits... Thank you so much. Honestly some people do kids with so much stuff in them and I don't know what to do with it all! Lol... These are fantastic.
