It was a lovely weekend, I must say.
Apart from the elections in the whole of europe for a new European Parliament of the European Union.
I will not ramble much about it, but it is kind if destressing we hardly know the representatives in that Parliament, and we have all our doubts about the use of it. In basic the start of an European Union was good.
Had to do with trade agreements, and such, but the Union has grown to big(as a lot of people think), also too quickly, and nobody knows or undderstands really what they do. Then lots of people think the European Union and parliament is messing too much in the national politics of the countries, froming the EU. It also is consuming lots of money(talking billions), and we could use that money for our own country at the moment, with still the crisis going on.
And it is often so that decisions are kind of dictated by the bigger countries, most richer part of that EU, so is there really a democracy going on? I wonder if all the representatives still know what that word really means.
But to stay a bit in a good mood, we drop the issue LOL and go on to our ususal life and little events/
Saturday Jan and I went to the market, it was a lovely day for it, and unfortunately a lot of people thought the same. It was real crowded. But even if it was kind of hard at times to find a way through the crowd we did find the things we wanted and best of all was we found a little plastic container that we could use as little pond in our garden, and now our frogs have a bit larger space to dwell in, yeah!
It still isn't completely the perfect one, but I am already so happy we found a bigge one so I placed it yesterday . First had to dig out a few plants to make room for it, then dug in the container a bit and placed the plants back, some of them around the new pond. I even bought a little cold water plant for it, that might give a bit of extra oxygen and also will give the frogs opportunity to hid under. Plants around it still will have to grow some to hid a bit more of the edge of the container, but a start has been made.
I've made you a few photos of some of the already flowering plants, like my cleamtis, which has never been so full of buds as this year.
Later made us a potatoe salad, filled with of course potatoes, but also dices of cucumber, and apple in it, and capers and tiny bits of baked bacon, mixed with some olive oil and little bit of maynonnaise, pepper and salt. with that we had each half a roasted (small)chicken and then strawberries with some cream. Yummie!
I have still some left over of the salad and a bit of chicken too, so I will mix the chicken into the salad, but perhaps also give a little hamburger with it and tadaaa, our diner will be ready quickly today!
Have to do a laundry again, and after that is done I can change the bedsheets and give them a wash.
Also want to make the preview for a new kit I also finished this weekend and then upload it.
Gosh, almost forgot, Friday I went to the annual checkup to the hospital for my lungs. Well, good news, nothing has changed on the photo they took of it, and values of all kind of things stayed about the same, so I was a happy girl, when I left the hospital.
Well, I h=think it's about time to post the freebie, It's the second download of the kit "Where Dreams Begin", and Wednesday I will have the lovely add on from Arlene again.
Have a wonderful day!
