All that glitters is gold LOL

Goodmorning everybody!

It's looking to be a rather nice day today, for the moment I see some sunshine and not too much wind, so may be a good day to pop over to the bank to leave there a bill to pay(such a pity for the money LOL), and sniff some air.
Last two days I did some little things in the house, also had to do some shopping( had no more coffee and cat food, for one), on the way I bought Jan some metal angles he needed to finish a closet, I am such a nice person, ain't I grin grin!

The of course also a lot of Olympics to watch, naturally most o it was the speedskating. Well, there was a big surprise. On the 500 mtr. sprint for men we hoped to win a medal, because normally competition from other countries is huge, but we did win all three of them!!
Oh gosh, it was sooooo exciting and not clear till the last moment who would win the medals!
I am really proud of our guys!
An extra nice thing"the gold and bronze medal were won by two twin brothers!!!!

Then yesterday there was the 500 mtr. sprint for women, and we didn;t really count on a medal there, but the miracle did happen! We did win a bronze medal, done by Margot Boer.
We were so happy for her, she's aiming for it already several years, and finally she did the trick, at the Olympics. Of course also congratulations to the other medal winners. Great job!

Finally we even did get to see a summary of the figure skating, oh my God, how beautiful is that!
I surely hope we will get to see more of it and not just a short summery!

All those sporters deserve a great respect, no matter on wich place of a ranking they end up.
Did you know by the way that this Olympics there also is ski jumping for women for the first time?
I did see a bit of it and it's fantastic!

With all that chit chat about the Olympics you can tell by now we LOVE to watch all kind of sports, and yes, some more than other, but in general we do watch it with pleasure.
Now today another important speedskating event, at the least, for us. 1000 mtr. sprint for men is on the programme and we do have some very good skaters for it. But again, competition is high, from Norway, the U.S, Russia, and more. So it will be exciting again.

In between all this we do watch some other things on tv too LOL1 And even do some things that have nothing to do with tv. Life is going on and bills have to be payed as well as soon tax-office will knock on the door, and the house sometimes is crying out that it needs a cleaning etc,etc.
Our politics go on too, there was another crisis going on in the government and parliament, but the minister who wa "under fire"survived it and still has his position. Now why isn;t that a big surprise to us???????????? The goernment supported him, although he made some big mistakes, because otherwise a good chance was there that the government had fallen. And no, of course they don;t that to happen. We know it already for a long time, but you have to admit, again, that politics often is a rather dirty game!
No, I will not continue on this subject, it will spoil my day and yours too!

Better I post now your freebie, don;t you think? Soon Valentine's Day will be there, but I didn;t make a specific kit for it this year. But I think this one might have possibility to use it for a nice Valentine's day layout. I named it "A Lady in Red". Together with Arlene's lovely clusters, you could end up with a wonderful layout.
Have a lovely day and till Friday!

Your new kit is gorgeous! Congratulations on the Olympic wins. I thought it was pretty amazing that twin brothers both won medals in the same sport. How fabulous, and how proud their parents must be.

I had to work last night and did not get to watch any of the Olympic games so I'm hoping that there will be more of the ice skating on this week.

I guess there is no getting away from bad government games. Such a shame that you can't trust very many politicians. Ah well, we do the best we can. Now I have to get back to my laundry. You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.

Kyra, what a lovely, lovely kit, love the red cat. Thanks to you and Arlene for the great gifts.
I have been so neglectful of all my friends since the Olympics started, however, I did warn them in advance....ROFL. I have been glued to the TV every time they have been on. The speed skating has been awesome this year and you guys have won all but one...great even shut out the US in the 1000 meter....the snowboarding has been awesome too, some really nasty falls because of the condition of the snow, can you believe how warm it is there? Just adored all the pair skaters and so very emotional when the Russian pairs took 1st & 2nd on their homeland ice. I so enjoy watching them. Well, enough, got to get my papers together, going to file my taxes this evening...ugh! I hate having to do this (but don't we all?) Chat more on Friday or Saturday or maybe Sunday...LOL depends on the Olympics. LMAO....
Hugs, Mat :)
