Loveloy weather, and a shock LOL

Goodmorning everybody!

Oh yes, it almost looks and sometimes even feels like ral Spring here lately.
Which is a good thing, because Jan and I did some more garden work on Wednesday afternoon!
I cleaned out some pots, with some indefinable green things in it, some also dried already, so I took that out, and now we have already some pots ready for the new seedlings, and other ones, looking much better and having room for the plants to grow a bit.
The other day Jan found a great big container in a recycle shop for only € 2,50 !!!
We filled that with soil and planted there anemone bulbs Jan bought at the market. Oh, I so hope they will grow and bloom well, they are so lovely with all their different colors!
We also got rid of a lot of weeds and pruned some more bushes, and at the end of the day we had a bunch of sacks and a BIG pile of prunings, that we got rid of all in the evening to be taken away the next morning.
Slowly we are getting back our garden a bit.

Yesterday I had to do a bit of shopping, so I asked Jan, if he could go to Heidi, to take the dogs out. I could have done it too, but it would have been a day of running around from left to right for me. Well, no problem, he went there, and I did my shopping.
Both home again, Jan got busy again in the garden, he had to stain some shelves, where we have a lot of pots standing on.
And I got brave and ironed all the laundry and stashed it away into the closets. Pfffff, good girl LOL1

As it looks to be another rather good day here, we probably will go to the market, We could do with some fresh fruit and perhaps some veggies too. This year the municipality decided to re-organize and improve the market place, so some of the stands already are gone, and others will have another place for a while, it all will get very messy I guess, but perhaps it will look and also be better when it all is finished. I just fear, that when it is all done, the rent of the standplaces will go up, and then as result the prices of the products will go up too. Hmmmm, we'll just have to see.

The weekend weather will be even better, lots of sun, temps going up to around 15-17 C ( 59-62 F), and if that really will be so, we can look forward to some more garden work, or perhaps a little walk to somewhere, I don;t know. But it sure is helping to get the spirit up a bit, and it also gives one a little injection of energy!

Today's kit is mostly in my favourite design color, Lilac, and named "Plunged in Thought".
Arlene made some splendid clusters as add-on.
I am working again on another kit, and I think I can finish that this weekend( if I do;t spend too much time outsiede, grin).
Also have to make two previews of clusters of Arlene of two other kits/
And if Jan and I are up to it this weekend already, we should plunge into some paperwork.. Perhaps we can apply for some reduction of municipality taxes, we received the forms for it, but oh boy, it is complicated to fill them in. You should think they could have all the information, or about all of it already from the tax office, but no, you have to fill in all kind of questions again, add a lot of papers to it, and probable will have 'no' as answer. well, we will see if it is really worth all the trouble.

Back to brighter things in life, here is the preview of the freebies, just got the shock of the day, LOL, it's only 9.30 a.m. ad Jan is up already!!( considering he always goes to bed late at night, it seems his systems work a bit different from other people, ROFL and he sleeps nrmally longer in the morning), so I better finish now my post, he already told me he wants to go to the market rather early( gone are my precious silent hours in the morningm hahahaha).
Wishing you a fantastic weekend with lots of fun and hopefully also some good weather.

Happy Friday! Have a terrific weekend and enjoy the lovely weather. We are back on the upside and today is supposed to be in upper 60's or better. We never stay cold for very long around here, just enough to make all miserable and ill with the up and down roller coaster of temperatures....LOL Thanks so much for the lovely kit and please send Arlene thanks as well for her lovely contributions. Hugs, Mat

Thanks for the new kit. I love these colors and I'm already searching the picture files for just the right one to pit in it. We can't get started on our out doors area yet because it's still bitter cold. But soon. I've got lots of crocus in the front but the back is just two large trees and grass for the dog to play in.

Oh my, I love the colors in this kit. I'm playing catch-up with my blog reading. Our internet here is yukky!! Makes it difficult to do anything on the web. I hope when I get home the weather is nice enough to work in my garden too. The weather here in Florida is just fabulous! This morning the girls are leaving and heading home. I'm going to miss them. It's been wonderful being with them all week. Now I will catch up on my blog reading while I can. You have a wonderful day my friend. Hugs, Edna & Pogo B.
