I fear winter creeps in!

Goodmorning everybody!

It looks gloomy outside, it is raining and greay. Not my kind of weather. and slowly it seems that winter comes into our country. Most of it is in the North and east of Holland, till now, and I hope most of it will stay there.
But temps are down and we reach no more than about 2-3 C at daytime. Not too much hey?
Oh well, we'll see how far it will go and how long it lasts.
I feel sorry for Jan though today, as he has to go to his volunteerjob and it looks very wet outside. May be it will be better to take the tram for once. It's no fun to arrive at the elderly home, completely soakded, is it?

It was a quiet week here, despite of the upstair neighbour having his house renewed.  must say the guys working there don;t make too much noise, specially in the mornings.
I wonder how long it will take to renovate the appartment.

One day this week I just couldn;t figure out what to do. Do you have that same feeling once in a while too? There are lots of things you can do, but none of them seem to appeal to you, you are just feeling a bit bored and walk every now and then through the house(for nothing), then sit for a while and watch tv without enjoying it etc. It is awful to experience! It doesn;t happen often to me, but this week I had such a day.LOL.
Wednesday I went to the market and I was lucky with the weather. Just had one little and short rainshower to enndure and that was already on the way back home. I bought us some veggies for really almost nothing and I have enough in the fridge for at least 1 1/2 week I think.
The last few weeks I am kind of hooked to a cooking program on the BBC, it is James Martin Home Comforts. He gives some real nice recipees that aren;t always to complicated. I just love the way he talks you through, and every time you also get an inside look of some special home farmers and such, which is really interesting. and I just enjoy watching cooking programs, I can;t help myself.

How about my stomach trouble? That is going better and better. Nonetheless I called the doctor yesterday to ask him, if I could stop abruptly with the pills iif I wanted. He asked if it was all gone, I said"well, not yet completely"and he gave me some more of the pills. He told me to take them for another week or may be two and then if all went well, I could stop with them. If not better, I should visit him again. So let's hope that stupid stomach comes to rest and that soon I won;t need to take those pills anymore.

Now it is about time to have a sandwich and make some coffee and then wake up Jan. Yes, I let him sleep long the days he has to work, I think he needs that.
Then later I will prepare some meatballs, that jan can have with a sandwich when he comes home this evening. I am not sure yet what i will have for dinner, but one thing is certain: it has to be something quick and simple! ROFL.

Today I have the clusters and quickpage from arlene for you, made with the From past to Present kit.
Oh, I even was busy for a moment on a new kit this week, wow! I finished it(just took a few elements to complete it) and I am halfway the preview. So I think it will be uploaded and ready somewhere this weekend.

Have a wonderful day and weekend and stay healthy!

Hello and Thank you Kyra and Arlene for these lovely clusters.
Kyra, I'm sure as we get older we feel the cold more and more. Hopefully the really cold weather won't hang around long. I think it would be a good idea for Jan to catch the tram so he isn't in the wet weather any longer than really necessary. It may cost more than going by bicycle but sometimes staying healthy is more important.
I hope your weekend goes well...

Good morning! I got interrupted while reading...LOL...these fur babies can be quite demanding at times (and I'm easily sidetracked)! While away I put out the trash for pickup...made me some breakfast and another cup of coffee...after the babies got attention and treats, they are all snuggled in for a nap (all around me in the computer room) and I can type again...ROFLMBO! We give in to them too much don't you think? Oh, well, I am not doing much today as I did all my cleaning and shopping chores I am still backing up my computer folders...what a chore! I am preparing to go back to the tax office for about 6-8 weeks of working each day...need the money to squirrel away for taxes and insurance on my home at the end of the year, besides it gets me out of the house a bit (seems I could really become a hermit) too!
Thanks to Arlene for more lovely gifts...and wishing you and Jan a lovely weekend ahead! Hugs, Mat

Thank you very much for the gifts from Arlene.
I'm trying to maintain my sanity. We have a new room mate here but sh'e gone a lot. It's when she's here that it really gets boisterous. I had to take some Ibuprofin for the headache.

Today is quiet. Time to relax and fortify for tomorrow.

The kit is really great and I'm looking for some pics to use it with. Will post them when I'm done.

I enjoy cooking shows too! Cuisine is also a very creative outlet and the best part ; you get to eat your creation! Hope your stomach is better soon !

Gosh, I'm so sorry you are not quite yourself lately. I have those "blue" days too. I think it is the weather. We are sunshine bunnies. We need the warmth and brightness of Spring.

I hope all goes well and your stomach heals so that you can stop taking the meds. You are so good to let Jan sleep late on his work days. It really helps.

I've been in my own "blue funky" mood during these cold days. It makes me very tired and need longer naps. I'm wishing us an early and long Spring.

Now I'm off to catch up on your newest post. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
