I know, it's not the biggest wish of many of us, that winter should arrive suddenly in haste LOL!
But the ice speed skating, as well as figure skating is mostly done now in big stadions with a closed roof over it. I believe next week will be one of the 1st speed skating contests, which will give us a bit of idea on how our skaters are doing. All of the focus is of course on the Olympic wintergames, but a few other contests are important too. Those are needed to gain a place in the Olympic team.
I am looking forward to it.
Yesterday evening we watched a little bit of figure skating, and it was wonderful!
There wasn;t too much activity in the house during the weekend. Oh, some minor errands have been done, I hope soon we can place the flooring in the kitchen now. That will gave a total different look!
I think that Jan just can handle that char with his back, I will need to help of course. I don;t mind that, we only seem to have trouble sometimes in working together on the same job. I admit, we both are at times kind of hardheaded and stubborn characters, and that can clash sometimes. Oh well, we survived many of those clashes already, so this time it will not be otherwise ROFL!
Yesterday I spent some time in the kitchen making a meatloaf, filled with boiled eggs. It turned out very well, and tasted good too. Made some chunks of potatoes also in the oven and as we had some red paprikas left that needed to be used, I cut those in larger pieces, fried them in a bit of oil and voila, we had some veggies too. Add to that as desert some strawberries with whipped cream, we had a tasty meal. And bst is, that we have enough left of the meatloaf for this evening.
So I don;t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen today, I think I devote some of the daytime to the laundry, washing and ironing. Sigh, that aren't the most enjoyable things a women can do, but they have to be done.LOL!
The next few days could be real nice, when looking at the forcast of the weather. It seems that tomorrow could be a gorgeaous day, with temps around 68F, which is extraordinary for this time of year. Oh, for me it can go on like this for a long long time, but i fear it will only be for one or two days. But they said all week temps would be rather high, later around 62F-64F, which is still nice.
Not too much rain either, yes, we still can live with that.
Ladies, it's time to finish this post, and I have a nice kit for you, named "Almost Easy". Amond the other elements I have made you 2 pageborders, and together with Arlene's contribution of 3 clusters I have good hopes you can make some wonderful layouts with it.
Here a preview of the kit, of course, but also of one of the pageborders.
Have a fantastic day!
