Some rain and some photos

Goodmorning everybody!

Yes, weather definately changed a bit, certainly the temps are lower, but as soon as the sun comes through it still is lovely weather. Raining this morning, okay, that's good for the garden, but I hope later it will stop and some sun will shine again.

Monday I wanted to do some "serious"work in the house and guess what? I did so LOL!
First gave  all the house a good sweep with the vacuum cleaner and then thres myself on the closet in the storage room, where I keep all the cleaning stuff, and shower/ shampoo things and such.
I sorted that out, re-arranged it a bit and it looks much better. Also we have some racks there where I keep storage boxes and cans, pots for indoor plants, toilet paper etc.
Sorted that out too, re-arraanged it too and I was quite happy about the result.
Sounds not too much work, but it always takes more time than you think.
Anyway, I was a little happy lady after i finished.

Yesterday I had to do some shopping, weather was nice, so I did it in low tempo.
In the supernaket they had an offer for garden soil, a big sac of 40 ltr for only € 3,00.
I didn;t took it with me, would be too heavy to carry home even with the shopping car, so perhaps Jan and I will go there and take one home. Then we will have more than enough for about the whole year, I think.
Coming home I noticed a little "mess"in the hallway, and saw Jan busy in the toilet/shower room, painting the ceiling and part of the walls that have no tiles.
As we had the leak earlier this year, it needed to be done and now it looks all wonderful and fresh again.
Jan also phoned the plumber on Monday to make an appointment to clean out cv-kettle and talk about some other things that still have to be done.
As the man was busy on a job, he asked if we could call him again next Monday. So I guess soon we will have a few days of a little mess again in the house, sigh!
Hopefully he will not charge us too much for the work on some pipes and a fixing of a part of a floor(yes, he also does some other construction works).

Good that is about all the news today. But I still have some photos for you from the garden. I'll start with the two containes we just filled with some new plants I bought the other week.
Now the Astilbe is starting to bloom, I love those plants, they are so elegant. Should try to find some more of them in other colors and they are easy to grow, you can divide the clumps and replant them. They do well in partly shadowed places and like moist soil.
Another hydrangea started to bloom, this one is reddish and I love the color of the foliage of this one. I should try to make some cutlings this year.
And oh my, our lillies bloom and I just LOVE that color!

This evening our football team has to play again, and I do hope they will play as well or perhaps even better as the 1st match!!

Freebie for today is the add-on of Arlene to the Bedtime Stories kit.
That girl makes fantastic things, as now again, you will get a frame cluster, a lovely page overlay and also a quickpage, I think you are a bit spoiled by her ROFL!

Have a fantastic day!!

Hello and Thank you for this lovely download.
Your flowers all look really pretty...

Oh my your flowers are just gorgeous! I planted some Astilbe this year but so far none have done anything. Of course, Joe may have pulled the plants out thinking they were weeds. I've had to ask him not to pull out any more weeds unless I am out there with him.

This is the second time in a week that my phone and internet have gone out all night and most of the day. The repair man just left here. He had to replace the modem. Hopefully, this will take care of the problem.

I did not get to post on my blog today, and it is late so I think I'll wait till tomorrow to post.

DIL Janet is coming by after work, and we will have supper together and spend some time crocheting and chatting.

Now I must get started cooking. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Good morning Kyra, I love the pictures of your flowers. I really like the purple ones but our area of the world is a Northern Desert. Lots of Sagebrush that rolls around in the late summer because they don't have a long root system and winds do blow pretty good up here. I call that the annual "Sage Brush Migration".

And I love the clusters from Arlene. Please thank her for me.

Have a nice day and see you tomorrow. P.S. I put some new pics on my blog from the GrGrandson, & his Father(my grandson)'s birthday in the park.

Thanks so much dear for the part 2 and Arlene's gifts from the Bedtime Kit. They are so appreciated. I have been rather busy since Friday the 13th and just now up to catching up again....LOL! Good luck for the rest of the tournaments for your teams...this year, I seem to have no interest in the soccer or hockey games...not enough hours in the days sometimes...right? Anyhow, thanks a lot for all you share! hugs, Mat
