Definately change of weather and some pics.

Goodmorning everybody!

We really ha a change of weather over the weekend. Friday it still was warm, although a bit less already comparing to the day before.
Jan went to the market, but I had no energy and stayed home. But I did do some housework, like a good dusting in the room and a good sweep with the vacuum cleaner.
Busy with that I always encounter little things that need to be done too, so some things look already a bit better now. We almost got our living room back again LOL, but there are still some things lying around, that need to have a place on the walls or have to be put away.
Saturday I spent some time on shortening some curtains, I am not happy yet with one, so I will have to give that another try. OPh, well, slowly does the trick too and finally it will be looking the way I want to.
Then early eavening we suddenly had a rather heavy rainshower, with one thunderclap.
It didn't rain for too long that heavy and soon it stopped again; But I could tell the garden was happy with the watering.
Sunday we did a bit of this and that and you could feel already the change of the weather. Although it still was nice, when the sun peeped through some clouds, it was much coooler.
And yesterday evening we had some more thunder with some rain too. Our Brodski didn;t like the tunderclaps and lightning too much, he even came inside for a while.

I promised you some photos of the new painted room and such, so I have made a couple.
I even found a picture where you can see the wallcolor as it was before, it was real nice, but time was there for some refreshment!

This is the couch area, front of the room, we changed the pictures hanging above, funny how changing a few wallhangings for different ones or changing the way they hang can make look the room different.
Here the chimneypart where with Christmas I have all the bears together on the floor LOL.
Here the area )just behind the chimney) where I do my computer stuff, and sit every time I ramble to you, hahaha.

Backpart of the room, towards the garden doors., we made that a bit a Russian corner. The small paintings you may see, are done by my mother, showing figures of Russian fairytales.

And finally I've managed to make a photo of a blooming morning glory bud. Jan is completely in love with the, hahaha, and thinks it is a pity they bloom only one day.
That's about all for today. I think I will "throw"myself on the curtain again, hopefully with a better result. They have to hang in the extension, Jan already painted what needed to, so when the curtains hang as they should, perhaps I can start to clear out that room (real mess now, we dump everything there for the moment LOL) and we will have back another part of the house.

Today you will have another Nutshell kit, in a sort of soft apricot color, and named very simple L'Estate (Summer). Arlene made a lovely stacked quickpage for you (she is awesome in her quickpages too, don't you think???) and a frame cluster.
Have a wonderful day, I hope we will have a mostly dry one, although the froggies seem to like the rain hahaha.

Oh my, I love your photos! How nice and bright everything looks. You and Jan have done a great job! I love the morning glory too, although I don't have any planted here. I meant to put some seeds in, but then I forgot. The new kit and clusters are fabulous. Of course, I just love the colors!! lol. I am still at work now. Later today, Pogo and I will be having a picnic and meeting up with the Queen Jester in person. Can't wait! You have a fabulous day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.
