Made a great find!

Goodmorning everybody!

Will have to be a bit short today, because we have an appointment late today to attend to.
We'll have to go to our insurance agent, to talk abouut a special insurance I have for my "pensionary days". At the time I lost my job at the business I worked about 9 years, we got a sum of money for the years we worked there, that was a special arrangement with the labour union. A part of that money I invested in a kind of insurance fund, and how miraculous, the sum has grown till now.
I have no idea about what our insurance agent wants to talk about concerning this insurance, but as the first visit for this will not be charged(that already is a miracle these days LOL), we will go there to hear what they have to tell us.
I am no wizzkid in financial things, neither Jan is, so we will have to be careful, and already agreed to sign nothing, or change nothing, it oly will be infomative and if they have suggestions, we will first think them over carefully. Sounds a good plan, hey?

As the office is about at the other end of the city we will have to leave on time, so must be a bit short on posting.
The last two days we didn;t do all too much, again, but Monday afternoon I thought it was a good time to visit town centre for a moment. So I did and found a few little things but I think the best was me spotting some nice buckets for a nice price. Hey, I didn;t buy them, but coming home and telling Jan about it he said: "why didn;t you take some home???"
Now can you guess what I did yesterday afternoon? Yes, went back to town and bought us 10 uckets, as they were only € 0,99 a piece. They are of a soft kind of plastic, in all nice happy colors.
You might thik, what we are going to do with 10 buckets???????
We will use them as planters! They just have a nice larger size, and the garden will look more hapy with them standing around and filled with all kinds of flowering plants. I think it is a good buy.
If we use them as planters. we better make a few holes in the bottom for better drainage, but that is no problem. And we also can use them as "overpots"containing another pot with a plants or whatever.
We already used one of them for one of our tomatoe plants that was almost growing out of its pot.

Weather looks to be wonderful today, sun is shining and lots of blue sky, temps will be around 71 to 74 F, the days to come we will jump quickly into 82 to 84 F!!
Might be that in the weekend there will be some thunderstorms, we'll see.
Okay, must finish now, to have time to dress, to drink a coffee and have a sandwich before we leave.
I promised you today the clusters from Arlene and so it will be LOL.
She made you 2 wonderful clusters and a fantastic quickpage!
Have a lovely day!

What wonderful news about your financial investment. And you are right about not signing anything until you've had time to think about it and talk it over.

I think the buckets for the garden is a wonderful idea. We are doing it now too.

We are having flash flood alerts in our area, but so far the rain has not started. A little rain about now would feel nice. (just a little rain!) You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Hello and Thank you for these lovely pieces.
I hope all went well with your trip to the insurance place.
Plastic buckets will always come in handy especially at such a good price...

Thanks so much Arlene for the lovely gifts.
Glad you had a productive day and hope you get good and sound advice about your investment. I did the same think with my retirement money and it seems to be doing pretty good so far, not a lot, but steady increases.
Have a lovely mid-week day and enjoy the great temps!
Hugs, Mat
