I really accomplished a few of my plans!

Goodmorning everybody!

I can feel rather happy with myself, as I did accomplish a bit of my plants I had on Monday.
First I did the bedsheets, then removed lots of dust bunnies, then took out the vacuum celaner and gave the living room a real good sweep, yes, I even removed some of the furniture( and what a mess you can find under a couch LOL), and reached into all little corners, which looked to be real necessary.
After that I was pooped out a bit, but with a good feeling.
Yesterday I took it a bit easier, but turned on the washing machine, and cleared out again some stuff of the extension, the mess there is at a point, that you even can move around a whee bit easier, meaning there still is a lot to put in place again but you can almost overlook it hahahahaha.

Today I do have to go out for a bit of shopping, at the same time I will see if I can post a parcel, and perhaps I can also deliver a few things at the charity shop( it's all on the same route).
If there is time, I even may do a quick visit at the market( but perhaps Jan has plans for this, if he goes, I can stay home, I will just ask him a few things he should buy then).
I should do the shopping today, because the weather is not too bad yet, as by tomorrow lots of wind is expected, perhaps more rain too, not the nicest weather to be outside for our Sinterklaas.
Yes, all little children are getting quite excited now, full of expectation for the "big"day tomorrow!
I still can remember how i felt during those days, and I was rather nervous too.
Specially the day itself, all day hoping that in early evening there would be some banging on the door or window, meaning that Sinterklaas came by and left a basket or box with presents!

One of these days I will have to finish the Christmas cards I have to sent, sneding them next week will probably be good enough to arrive at time.

That;s it for the moment, I better get myself into action after I finished this post, then I will have enough time to do all I want to.
Why not continue in Christmas spirit and post a Christmas kit? Isn;t Christmastime a time we smell the cinnamon around? I think it is, so I made you a kit with this theme and named it"Christmas with Cinnamon Smell".
And Arlene made you a wonderful quickpage and two clusters as add-on.
Hope you will like this color palette for some Christmas layouts.
Have a lovely day!

Gosh, even when you don't do much, you manage to do a lot. Today we are enjoying some sunshine. It's not as warm as yesterday, but it is manageable. I hope your weather stays fairly good for tomorrow and Sinterklass. Now I'm off to find some mischief to get into. You have a beautiful day, hugs, Edna B.

I have so enjoyed your snipets of the tale of Sinterklaas that I had to look him up on the internet. It's a delightful story and I wish we had something here in the US to match it. Alas we don't and our holiday has become so commercialized it's obscene. There were 4 deaths this year when people tried to get the biggest deal on Black Friday. I won't even leave my house that day.

And I thank you for the pretty kit with the smell of cinnamon.

Hello, miss me? I have been so very swamped with a lot of different things that kept me from my computer for so long I was beginning to have withdrawals....LOL! I am helping my friend Jan that is having her radiation treatments, my friend Nina has been terribly ill over the Thanksgiving holiday so I had to help with some shopping, etc for her, then another friend had a small accident on a motorcycle and asked for some help and I have been trying to get my outside fur babies all prepared for this winter ice that is supposed to hit us tonight. We dropped 43 degrees overnight and the wind is blowing in from the north now that will take your breath. We are supposed to accumulate 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice overnight tonight...if that happens, we may have a lot of power outages as we still have many trees with lots of leaves and that creates extra weight causing limbs to come down on power lines.
I picked up all that I have missed and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you share with me, thanks to Arlene too, I just hope I can get to the Christmas blog train before we have no power....LOL. I have lots of blankets down just in case and all my babies outside have heated beds and shelter if the power goes. I have plenty of food for them and me so we are set for our ice storm tonight and another on Saturday! Bring it on Mother Nature, we do not have to go out! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Mat
