It's early afternoon, but as I am used to post early morning, I feel I lost half a day LOL!
Well, loosing time seems to be quite a "normal" feeling at the moment. The days pass by in a kind of rush, and when I look back at them, I just cannot remember with what time passed. I know there are things I achieved during those days, but I am "missing"also moments hahahaha. No, don;t worry, I think my brain is still working okay, but days sometimes are filled with all kind of little things to do and they aren;t all worth remembering.
This week I finally got to the hairdresser, and what a relief that is, believe me.
Also had an appointment with my "volunteerwork coach", which was nice as always. He gave me another two weeks to orientate myself to volunteerwork I might like to do( this coach is very nice to me, and gives only positive reports to the guy of social service benefits, ), but also I might be taken in in a group for language lessons to non-natives, specially women on another location. They know I am not a teacher, so giving lessons myself already, hmmm, I don;t know if that is a good idea, but I can help perhaps in setting up language course, in getting material for it, calling around, typing things if needed etc. etc. I hope to hear from the starting group soon, they will have a meeting and I am invited to it, to brainstorm with them. Might be nice.
It hasn;t been the best of weather to go out for a longer time last week, we had lots of rainshowers, some real heavy ones, at times also some clearing up and sunshine, but the temperatures dropped enormously to about 16-17 C daytime. And that is really several degrees lower than usual temperatures in the beginning of September.
But may be later this week it will crawl upwards again a bit. I really hope so, because i am not ready yet for low autumn temperatures and such. I am crossing my fingers for having a loooong Indian Summer, short autumn and winter and early spring again.LOL!
I will have to spread my dahlia's otherwise in the garden next year. Oh, they are doing very well, but they grew much bigger than I thought, so they will need more space between them and another place in the garden.
The tomatoes are doing okay too, we had several times a salad containing a few of our own tomatoes.
Just need to cut them down a bit, remove more of their leaves, so that the tomatoes at the plants will catch more light and sunlight specially. And we have to hope for a week or so of much warmer temperatures, so all my tomatoes will ripen at time.
Today Jan has his last day of social work this week(no, it hasn;t ended, just this weekend LOL,) but I wonder if it isn't a bit too straining, 3 days in a row. I asked him, but of course he denied it, still I see he is rather tired after 3 days from 16.00-19.00 a.m., which may not seem a long time, but he misses his after-dinner nap like this. He comes home around 19.30 a.m. drinks something then after some time he has to have his dinner, and of course then it is too late to take a nap.
He helps people of age with their evening sandwich and drinks, preparing it, clearing off, getting the little kitchen in order etc. for a group of about 15-20 people. Most of them are at that department for
medical rehabilitation, after an operation of e.g. a hip, or a fall at home, something like that.
So the larger part of them are still capable of eating themselves, but have sometimes a bit of trouble making their sandwich, (and sometimes they just like to be pampered a bit, hahaha). One day there is much more to do than on another day, there are evenings he has time to take a pause, even take a cup of soup himself if there is some left over, then is isn't so straining of course.
It's a kind of work Jan likes to do and does it well, it also helps he has his background of nursing, so he has a keen eye to see where real help is needed and so. Plus he is easy in little conversations with them.
well, I will keep an eye on him, so to speak and if I think it is just a bit too much will try to convince him to perhaps spread his 3 days differently. May 2 in the weekend, then a day od rest and then another shift. But that will be hard work for me to get his that far hahahaha.
And.... did I do some designing this week? Not too much, but I did start another kit again.
I am spending time at the computer though, but it is filled with other things at the moment. Have to keep up a bit with a few blogs I follow, and now again I will have to spend some time searching for a nice volunteer job if the language thing will not blossom, and slowly Jan and I have to spend some time in the garden, preparing it again for autumn and winter. We still have a bit of time but with the weather changing to less good all the time, we'll have to pick the moments.
But there is a freebie for you, made by the wonderful creative Arlene, clusters and a quickpage made with the Seaside Sunset kit.
Leaving you now, with wishes for a lovely day and good start of the week.
