Feels a bit like winter

Goodafternoon everybody!

Yes, I am a day early, but I have kind of a "day off " today, and thought it might be a good idea to do the blogpost now.
That day off means I am not doing grocerie shopping, or laundry, or vacuum cleaning or whatever, just take it real easy and enjoy doing that LOL!

The last couple of days we had rather cold temperatures, daytime not much more than 2-4 C and at night a bit of frost. Lucky there wasn;t too much wind.
But as from tomorrow it should change again and temperatures should go up to around 7C and no frost at night. Lovely!

Before I forget, I got one comment on last week's post, that the link at Arlene's clusters would lead to the download link of the whole kit? I tried the link and I got just the link for Arlene's clusters. If there still problems with that, please let me know, so that I can change it if necessary.

Last week was a more or less quiet week, I did some more grocerie shopping, got already lots of things I need for Christmas dinner and Christmas Eve and Boxing day, so I am almost ready with that. Of course there are also the usual things you need to get, like fresh milk, and such.
Then I went back to the doctor, because the medicine drink he gave me, is helping , but not enough to my liking, So I will get a referral letter for the hospital to have an endoscopie (earlier than was planned by the hospital). I can pick it up on Monday and then i will have to make a phonecall for an appointment. Hopefully it will not take too much time before they can plan me in. For now I will hold on, it isn;t too bad, just at some moments it plays tricks  with me a bit.
Oh well, I surely will survive, don;t worry!

I had a phonecall with my friend Heidi, all seems to go opkay with her at the moment. As usual she is far too busy for her own good, but  that's how she is. Sometimes she can take it more easy, but their lives seems so busy(or may be they are making it also a bit too busy), not really enough time for all.
Still I am glad she is doing as well as canbe at the moment. she told me she will have a small bunch of people over with Christmasday, and they will stay for dinner too! Now she is making all kind of little snacks, warm and cold, so everyone can pick what they like. It is much less straining than cooking the whole dinner herself. Lots of things she can pick up in the shop, ready made, so that is easy for her.

I am happy that Jan and I are just together at Christmas. Sounds perhaps not nice, but we had our share of Christmasdays surrounded by lots of people, me cooking dinner for about 10-12 people and such.
Now it is rather nice to be together, have a nice and tasty meal and be able to do whatever you want and watch some great Christmasshow at tv. Sounds perhaps boring, but I like it a lot this way, these days.
Perhaps it means we are getting somewhat old, hahaha.

Oh my, the day before yesterday I had a not so nice thing happening to me. I was out to do some grocerie shopping, just a few things, had to get me some money with my bankcard, that was okay, then after the shopping I realized it should have taking just a little bit more in cash, so I went for another bit of cash at the ATM, and i got the message:"there is an error occuring, contact your bank"
Oh no, I thought, just now perhaps my bankcard has a scratch or so, that prevents it from working correctly.
Hm, so i decided to go to the bank to be sure. Arriving there, the guy who helped me(very nice man, I must say)told me that there was no need to be concerned about my card. I just took money from a "guest ATM" (one from another bank) and you can only do that one time a day. If I should do it at one of my own bank, there should be no problem. I tried it out there and oh relief, the card worked well.!
so I made the journey to the bank somewhat for nothing(because I already thought it might be as the guy told me, but I wasn;t sure), but I didn;t care, now I knew there was nothing wrong with my card. I would have been very unpleasant not having my card, specially these days, when you seem to use it more than usual.

Just looking out of the window now and it looks rather nice outside. At least, the sun is shoning, there even is some blue sky, but looking at the people that walk along the street, it still must be rather cold.
Hmm, may be I should go out for a short while, just to have a snoff of air(and then it is just so nice coming into the house again, it feels much warmer than when you left it, funny thing somehow.)

Time to take a bite now and something to drink.
I have for you another Christmas kit, together with the clusters Arlene made.
Have a wonderful week.

First, I did not have any trouble last week downloading the clusters. Today's downloads worked quite well too. Thank you, they are lovely. The weather here has been quite cold most of the time too. Ah, but it is winter. Think Spring and hopefully it won't take so long to get here.

It really is nice to have a day every now and then with absolutely nothing to do but relax. I probably did too much relaxing though, because just this morning I finally got the last of my packages to the Post Office. Phew! I just have a bit of wrapping left to do, but it is all for local friends and family. Woo Hoo!

I love my quiet Holidays too. For years, I entertained lots of family and friends for Christmas, but now it is just me and Pogo. But it's nice because I can lounge around in my jammies and watch TV or do whatever I want.

Now I think I'll make some supper for Pogo and me. You have a wonderful evening and week my friend. Big hugs, Edna B.

Hello my friend! I am trying so hard to play catch up with my scrapping, but seem to be hitting walls of don't want to or it don't look like I thought...LOL I seem to be having too many of those days lately! i have been helping a friend that broke her leg in a fall from her my routine is kind of all out of whack lately! I agree with you, the quiet time at home with a good TV movie or a good book and good food with someone you love is much more comfortable for spending Christmas than the big parties and all the cooking and cleaning! Not boring at all! That will be exactly what my fur babies and I will be doing! LOL!
Many thanks for the lovely kit and Arlene's creations too! Stay warm and healthy and by all means have a very Merry CHRISTmas and a very happy and prosperous 2019! hugs, Mat

Thank you for the new kit. It looks lovely so I will get busy finding pictures to make some new Scrapbook pages.
I've been having a small bit of trouble with my Vertigo. One day it was very troubling to have the world spinning and my eyes wouldn't focus very well. So I sat in my comfortable recliner and closed my eyes until I felt the wobbly feeling go away. Just didn't think I be too safe driving my car to the store so I had my Grandson-in-law (Jess) pick up what I was needing. Might have to flush out the ears to take care of the problem. Going to see my doctor today so I'll ask her if the ears need flushing.
Almost through the decorating. Jess was going to string the lights outside but it started raining and kept it up all day. Maybe today.
Thanks to you and Arlene for another very pretty Christmas kit.

I'm appreciate your writing skill. Please keep on working hard. Thanks

First of all let me thank you for the very pretty kit. I love those colours! I have been having migraines nearly every day for the past week to 10 days. I get the flashing lights in my eyes so I can't be on the computer. I sometimes wonder maybe too much computer causes it. Sure happy there wasn't problems with your bank card. Finished the last of my Christmas shopping today. I don't have many to buy for and I knew what I was getting so it was relatively easy to do. Have to get my daughter to drive me around as my car was written off a month ago. No more independence and I hate it! But not much I can do and I will be 77 in March so everyone is probably happy I don't have it anymore. Lol.
Good luck in getting your tummy looked after. Always the bes to do. Hugs.
