Today is Valentine's day, so time to have some special moments with your loved one, or re-view in your mind some special moments you had with your loved one.
I always burn a little candel in front of my icaon, because this is the day my mother passed away( already 22 years ago, I cannot imagine it is so long ago). May be you think it is a sad day for me, but it isn;t really. Well, for a part yes, of course, but on the other hand it was such a good day for her to leave the earth, and a perfect day to join with her husband and all that passed away before her!
I just heard on the news that the weather in mostly the east part of the US is still terrible, so cold and with lots of snow, people are in trouble because of it. Gosh, I truly hope this kind of weather will go away and that much better weather circumstances will arrive!
Same in Great Britain, where large parts still have to cope with floods and rain and storm, and it isn;t over there yet!
Then I think we are still the lucky ones, with temperatures around 7C( around 45 F) even now and then sunshine, but also some rain showers, and a bit too much wind to my liking. But all over we should be very happy!
The last two days were again a party for us Dutchies at the Olympics. Sorry, I talk so much about it, but it's really an amazing Olympics for the skaters. And yes, I know, it's about the only sport we are really good at, although slowly we also ahev some shorttrackers, who do well, but not yet for the medals till now. And imagine, we have even bobsleigh teams that will compete LOL!
But back to the counries pride, the speed skaters. Last two days there were the competitions of the 100 mtrs. sprint for men and women. And we gathered again some great medals there.
Congrats to the Canadian too, and what about the 3rd place of one of our twin brothers?
Also watched some figure skating, they don't give much of it on our channels, but on some other foreign channels there is more to see, so we do a lot of zapping around on tv these days, hahaha.
I even felt a bit proud for the two Russian couples who won the figure skating, can you imagine?? Well, part of my blood and heart has Russian genes, so that must be the reason, ROFL.
But you have to admit they are awesome!
I think today I will have to do a bit of shopping, not too much needed, but I like to keep up the reserves, and a couple of things are running out, as always. I should do that a bit early in the afternoon, because some rain might come later. Better try to keep it dry.!
And after I have done that, probably must do a laundry and then I might do a bit of computer time.
No speedskating today, that will be again in the weekend, but lots of other wonderful sports we like to too, like curling, icehockey, figure skating ( men's long program) etc.
So on to the freebie then.
Perhaps this kit will give you kind of a spring feeling, it's named Birdie's Song.
It was fun to make this one( always fun to make a kit, but some just a bit more LOL).
Very sweet clusters from Arlene to make a perfect layout.
You have a wonderful Valentine's day and even so wonderful weekend!
P.S. Almost forgot! Linda has made again two wonderful quickpages, for Valentine's day.
You can download them on her blog ( and leave a smile when you do)
