We could do with a few degrees more!

Goodmorning everybody!

Last couple of days the weather isn;t quite as I would like it to be. Temperatures are a whee too low, and the sun isn't showing much either. But according to the weather forecast the coming days temps should rise a little bit and we will have more sunshine again. Okay, we will hold on to that hope.
Not much going on here the last two days.

We have now containers in our street and neighnourhood for the garbage bags. In a way it's a good thing, no more piles of sacs every week at the sidewalks, and often they are picked open by the seagulls and that makes a mess on the street.
But now we have to walk with our sacs to a container, and there aren;t too many of them, still we are lucky to have one not all to far away from our house.

Short news about our soccer team, they did win their second match too, although it was a rather touch match! They will have to play another match in this 1st round, but they are almost certain for a place in the 2nd round. Okay, so far, so good.

Told you about the offer of the supermarket for that 40 ltr. sac of garden soil. well, Jan was busy with some things that day so I went alone to buy it. Took my shopping car, of course and took one home. Gosh, it was a big sac and a bit heavy, So I struggled to get it into my car and there was a nice lady who came to help me with it. I was sooo grateful to her!
Arrived home and Jan had to take it out LOL!
Good that I bought that soil, cause I used up the last bit we had still standing around. I had to repot some seedlings again. Soooofunny, some weeks ago I still had some stew pears I cooked for us. Had to clean them first, of course and though: "Why not take some seeds and try planting them?"so I did and now I have 4 new started pear trees LOL! They grow well, but if they become taller I have no idea where to put them! Perhaps I can place one later in a big planter and see what comes of it.

If tomorrow the weather is a bit nicer again, Jan and I will visit a little fair not too far from our house. It would be a nice little walk.
No idea yet what I will do today. Perhaps first a little housework and may be I will take another trip to town this afternoonand see if I can find myself a new pair of shoes.
Usually, when I go to buy something specific, I don;t find it, but come home with other things, LOL!
Okay, in a way that is nice too, because then I found stuff I was looking for already, but now stumble upon them for a nice reduction price.

Freebie today is part one of a kit named "Lost in a Dream"I really like the colors of it.
See you back on Monday, wishing you all a fantastic weekend!

I love the colors in your new kit. They're so soft (and orangey). Our weather is a few degrees cooler today and it feels so good. I'm sure the sun will be back in your neighborhood with warmer temps soon.

It's good you were able to get the large bag of soil. That's how I like to buy it too. I can't wait to see a picture of your pear tree. It will be fun watching it grow.

I have a couple of pears so maybe I'll try planting one of the seeds to see what I get.

Now I'm off to do a load of laundry. You have a fabulous weekend my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

I really am feeling lazy when I read about the many things you have been doing in your home.The cleaning and organizing etc. I really need to take a day or several weeks to get mine done.LOL Seems I no sooner get something started ..when something else comes up to take my time away from it.:) Tomorrow..tomorrow..I'll clean it tomorrow...tomorrow's a day away.hehe

Good Morning...thanks so very much for this lovely kit, I like the colors as well. Hope your weekend is a good one and that you get a chance to relax.
We finished one back of fluids last evening and start the second bag today, we are down the first week now of the dialysis of Tommy...yeah! He seems to be feeling some better, just hope it continues!
Gotta run, still have some dust bunnies to chase around. Hugs, Mat

Thanks for the newest kit. I love the soft orange/salmon. One of my favorites.

I've been reading your blog and I'm getting a good idea of life in Holland. That is where you live isn't it?

Your Pear tree could bear fruit in another 2 years and then you won't have to go to the market to get them. Fresh from the garden is always best!
