All is going well till now!

Goodafternoon everybody!

We´ve had some colder weather, quite some rain, still all together not so bad for the time of year. And I saw on the weather report that next week we might even reach temperatures around 17C, with almost no wind and quite some periods with sunshine! That would be good, because then it would be much more agreable for Jan to go out.
And he has to, to gain some condition and to get his muscles working again, and it also is good for the bloodcirculation. specially in his underleg and feet.

Last Tuesday Jan's brother Rob, came by to do some little jobs in the house.
He would come around 1 o'clock p.m., because first he had to buy a ramp for the shower in a shop not far from our house.
I had the idea, that when Rob would be busy, I could go out to do some shopping or whatever. The day before Jan and I already prepaired as much as possible the tools and such so Rob (or Jan ) could start working without loosing much time searching for things.
But..... it ended in me helping Rob with some of the jobs LOL!
Well, obvious Jan couldnl't do that(he isn;t yet allowed to lift things or sit on his knees, bending too much etc).
So I helped Rob in holding things in it's place, getting the right screws, and more. But.... lots of the things needed, were done. Most important was the ramp in the showerIspecially for Jan at the moment). Then there was needed a kiind of shelf in the kitchen on the place where we had the dishwasher. Now we just need to find a small cupboard, that will fit there.
And there was needed a new piece of wood on the kitchen door outside. Actually we should replace that door, but for the moment this is good enough( a new door could be rather expensive!). Now it needs a coat of paint and it will do fine for the winter.
well, it sounds all not much but it takes all time to do. I am glad Rob could help us with the jobs.
After my not intended help in carpenting and so, hahahaha, I was happy to sit down in the evening on the couch and I went to bed earlier than usual!

This week Heidi's husband had to go to hospital for an operation on Thursday, not all too serious, he only had to stay over for one night and came home again Friday afternoon.
The Friday morning Jan and I went to hospital in the morning to have his staples removed. Well, that went sooooo quick, all the visit and removing didn;t last more than about 15 minutes! Gosh, never thought it would go that quick, because normally there always is a waiting time for the appointment. Not this time.
The cicatrice looked well, and has no need of an adhesive plaster anymore.
The nurse only put on some small pieces of plaster, just to kind of strengthen the adhesion.
Jan still will have to carry cummerbund(is this the right word) for about 4 more weeks. At least during the day, he can remove it in the evening when he doesn;t move too much anymore and during the night.
And then we'll have to wait for about 3 months, when he will have his next appointment with an echo.

This week Jan planted even some more bulbs in containers. He did sit down on a little stool, and the containmers where at about the same hight, so it was something he could do, although slowly and careful.
Now hoping we will have three of four containers next spring with a selection of tulips and one container has daffodils. 

So all together with some grocerie shopping and a market visit for some fruit and cheese and veggies, it was a filled week. And yesterday I finally made us again a Boeuf Parmentier(kind of Sheperds Pie), because now I could prepare it and heat it up in the oven, yeah!!!
we had it yesterday evening for dinner with a bit of salad and for desert I made us the first stew pears of the year again. It all tasted really good and I have an easy task today for dinner. Yes, you might have guessed, we have the Boeuf Parmentier again and the stew pears. Wonderful, LOL.

Hmmmm, I think it is time I get myself a cup of tea(or may be a coffee. I don;t know yet), I am getting thirsty a bit.
I hope you all will have a wonderful week to come, with not too bad weather and lots of moments you can smile about.
stay safe and healthy!

Slowly coming into sort of normal rythm again

Good afternoon everybody!

So far, so good. as you know Jan came home Saturday a week ago and till now, it seems to go rather well.
Of course he cannot do much, has to be careful not to put much strain or strength on his belly.
But he seems not to have lot of pain of the wound, only if he has to sit down or come up, that sort of thing, or reach for a mug on the table, he has to do that carefully and slow and then he feels it.
He has an elastic bandage around the waist and belly, to give more support there and he still have to use that for some more time. Only in the evening he takes it off, when it really starts to bother.
Last wednesday we both went to out doctor across the street and Jan could walk that distance without much trouble. We went there to get our flu shot.
Gosh, I think the doctor hit perhaps a muscle in the arm or so, because the place where i had the injection, still is hurting when I touch it or lie on it.
I will tell him to do better next time LOL!

Then Thursday morning we had to go to hospital for a control appointment for Jan with the surgeon. Oh my, we pensionados aren+t used anymore to get up very early, you know and we hadn to be there at 8.30 p.m. so get our of bed at about 07.00 p.m. to be able to get dressed and have a cup of tea and such not in a hurry. We went with the tram, yes, lucky Jan could sit sduring the ride, and then he walked all the way from the tramstop to the hospital and the the department. Quite a distance for him now, but it went well.
Wound looked good, we only have to put on an adhesive plaster every two days, as long as there is some wound fluid. Today it already was almost dry, so to be sure, I put on another adhesive plaster.
Coming Friday we will have to go to hospital again, to have the staples removed)yes, first time they closed the wound with thread, second time with staples too). Hope that goes without too much problems, and then, when all goes well, Jan has to return after 3 months for a control. Then they will make again an echo to see if all hold well and works okay.

It is a pity, that the weatherr isn;t really good now, it isn't really cold, but we have wind and lots of rainshowers, so not the best condition for Jan to go out and try to have a little walk. It would be good for him to do it, and build up again some condition. It doesn;t matter if it is colder, but at least it should be dry, if possible with a bit of sunshine and not so much wind.
However today, the temperatures were realy nice, around 19-20C so Jan did a little of work in the garden(with my supervising eye and help for lifting things!!!).
He placed some flower bulbs in two different containers, cleaned out a few smaller pots with plants that were finished, and after half an hour he he enough of it. He was a bit tired and I understood him completely.
Still it was a start and he has to build up from this to more.

This week his brother came for a visit and Jan asked him if he could help with some smal jobs in the house, that at the moment Jan cannot do(and me neither). That was no problem. so he will come on Tuesday to do it.
Most important thing is a handrail in our shower! It is a lot safer, when you can hold yourself and also for stepping in and out.
Specially now for Jan, but also in future. And there is some carpenter work to do also for Rob(Jan's brother).
And I want to ask him to come by another time, perhaps next week, to do some jobs in the garden. There is a bush, that has to go, but for me it is far to heavy to dig it out, here is needed some manpower, really.
And there are some smaller jobs to do in the garden that are also for me at the moment too straining and difficult. So I would be happy with the help of Rob.

That;s about it for this week, we both slowly come to a sort of relaxing and catching up some sleep. And I am happy with that.
Thanks all for your thoughts and prayers lately!
stay safe and healthy as much as possible, and till next week!

Another hectic week!

Good afternoon everybody!

Weather here at the moment, rainy, windy and not very warm.
during next week temperatures could rise again a little bit up to 14-15 C, and with a bit more sunshine. It definately is getting into Autumn weather.

Well, you know about Jan having to go to hospital. (thanks to everyone with good well wishes!).A little as a surprise he could go home again last Wednesday. The wound looked good, almost dry, so medical wise it was okay to go home the doctor said. I wasn;t all too happy about it, though it might be just a wee buit too soon, but nothing to do about it.
It went rather well Wednesday evening, next day too. of course Jan feels the wound when moving, and he is very tired, but he had something to eat several times(little portions to start with), he has to regain strength again.
Thursday evening we had small dinner, and then when just finished around 18.00 a.m. Jan looked at his dressing gown and it had at several places a very strange color and it felt wet.
So we looked further and at the wound with adhesive plaster and that was all red and tearing it off at the bottom of it blood. Oh dear, the wound was leaking!
First I dried it as much as I could but it kept leaking. I could the hospital first, and they said well, come over to us. But How? I have no car and I wasn't sure if a taxi driver would take us, but they wouldn;t send an ambulance.
All stressed up I called my friend Heidi and asked if her husband Danny could bring us to hospital. In 15 minutes they were there and off to hospital ER.
(I had a sheet of plastic I layed over the seats in the car).
To make it short, Heidi stayed with me till about 19.45, then she had to go, because she had to go somewhere with her daughter.
It all took till 1.30 at night till Jan finally was brought to a ward! He was completely worn out, but I was too!
Next morning they operated him again, and it seemed that in "stitching him together, they missed a little part, that opened again caused a hematome and that started leaking. How nice!
After operation I went to hospital at about 1.30 a.m., and Jan was already awake(well, more or less LOL). We wanted to know if he had to stay for another night, of course, it took till 7.20 a.m. that a doctor decided it was better he stayed another night.
Yesterday he could come home, after still long waiting for the decision! we were home at about 18.00 a.m.
Hopefully now it will all go well and heal as it should do etc.
The worst of all is the endless waiting you have to do before you get any results or answers. I know, it is very busy in a hospital, and the doctors have many patients, but there must be a possibility to cut the waiting times? I think it does no good to the patient as well as relatives. Very stressing.

But okay, we are home again. Jan cannot move around a lot, of course and has to be careful not to put too much pressure on his belly.
So this morning I helped him to take a shower, I felt better to be next to him, to avoid any problems.
He tries to do as much as possible himself, but I don;t want him to move around too much yet( he has to move every now and then, but by little bits), so I am very busy with all those little things, like bringing him something to drink, helping him to put his socks on,making him a sandwich, and lots more things you normally don;t do. Rather time consuming, but it will only be for some days and then he already will be able to do a bit more himself.
As long as he heals well, it is all okay for me!

You can imagine I didn't have much time to do anything else this week, than gooing to and from hospital, and actually running around like a headless chicken ROFL!. It wasn;t one of the best weeks of the year, I can tell you that.

Now I will finish the post, hopefully next week there will be some lighter news to tell. I have a luandry turning in the washing machine, that is almost ready. I will hang that out, then I will have a little time to sit down to watch some tv or do a little game on the computer and then I will have to make us some dinner. Time is running out very fast today.
Have a wonderful week to come, stay safe and healthy.

Shocking week!

Good afternoon everybody!

To start with the weather, it is raining now with lots of wind, although the temperatures aren't too bad yet. But they will drop from now around 17-18 to 14-15C later this week. It really is getting into autumn-weather.

Where to start? The week started quiete good, quiet, some plans in the head to do, all quite as usual.
Wednesday evening I already noticed that Jan wasn't all 100% himself. He also didn;t have much appetite in the evening, I asked him why, he answered that he had some tummy trouble. Okay, that can happen. But it got worse, he really hurt when having tose "stitches", so I said he needed a doctor. He wanted to wait till morning so I could call our doctor. But it got still worse, he vomited also, so I called the SMASh(night emergency doctor's post). First they asked if we could come to the doctor's post(in a hospital rather far away from us), but I refused. Jan was in no comdition, to get into a taxi.
So the night doctor came to us. Couldn't find right away a cause, gave him a kind of painkiller and medicin against feeling sick and vomiting.
Urged us to call our doctor in the morning. You can imagine we didn;t have a good night, specially Jan not, the poor soul.
Next morning I right away called our doctor. Explained it all to the assistent and urged her to send the docor over as soon as he could. He came around midday, and called for an ambulance, because he didnlt know exactly what the cause was, but said Jan was a fragile patient, so better take no risk.
On to hospital emergency. We were there for about 4 hourse at least, Jan had all kind of tests and scans. They couldn;t see anything causing those pains in the belly. Gave us the choice to stay in hospital ro going home. ou shouldn;t give people that kind of coice, I think,. but okay, there was no direct medical reason to keep him there. He got however the advice, that if it got again worse, we should call directly to the ER of the hospital and we would be fetched by ambulance.
I wasn;t happy with it, but Jan wanted to go home and see how it went.
For a bit early evening it seemed to go slightly better, but already soon it all came back and even worse. So at about 5 o'clock night I called the ER.
Explained, and asked for ambulance to pick us up. Then I got the answer that they couldn;t send it, but I had to call for the 112(emergency phonenumber for police, ambulance and firefighters). Strange, but okay, I did so. ecplained and there they said the hospital probably could send the ambulance. All very confusing but after half an hour there suddenly was the ambulance.
Then the whole circus started again with all kind of tests and scans(in the meantime, Jan got some painkillers, so it didn;t hurt that much). Becaue of his diminished liver function and slight kidney problems he cannot have all painkillers, but they knew that.
After a long session of tests and waiting, I think we were there busy for about 6 hours, finally they stumbled onto something.
I try to tell it all as short as possible, which isnt easy, sorry.
At last there came a specialist Jan knows from earlier stay in hospital and he told him that they seemd to see on the scan, that 3 bloodvessels, going to the intenstins, were smaller(partly blocked) and therefor the intestins didnt get enough oxygen rich blood causing in longer terms mortifying of the intestins, and at first possibility of getting into a knot. And that causing hose pain-stitches Jan felt.
Two options: doing nothing, he would die, very soon or in short time.
Second option: an operation right away, with no garantee of succes, that was all depending on the situation of the intestins, that they only could see and know when opening the belly and taking a look.
Quite shocking, isn;t it?? We never could have thought of this to happen.
Well, there wasn;t much to argue, Jan decided he wanted the operation.
Then after may be 10 minutes came the surgeon who would do the operation, explaining us what they would do. As they already were operatinm they would place some stents into the vains leading to the intestins, so the blood could run freely and well again. And then they would see how the condition of the intestins was, if there was a knot in them or not, and if there was any kind of mortification to see or not.
Jan was in the operation room wihin an hour I believe.!!

I was a bit in a stress, you could say! About just two years ago I had almost the same situation, that time when Jan's kidneys had to had to be brought back to life again. He could die or he would survive. Well, that time he survived.
Now it was about the same. Quite a tricky operation, (specially because Jan was already having a fragile liver and also kidneys and all together it made it more tricky)with no knowledge of the outcome till the had opened the belly and even then, or just die.
Pffffffff, not the thing you are waiting for on a Friday!(or any day of the week)
I right away called Heidi, I just needed some support. She came right away, I think within 15 minutes she was there, and she just could see Jan for a minute and wish him well, before he went to the operation room.
Then I just had to wait. After Heidi and I (and also Séverine came over, so sweet)had a cup of coffe I decided just to go home and wait there.
 At about 5 o'clock a.m the surgeon called me to tell the operation went well, there seemd to be no dammage, they placed the stents into the vains and that worked really well. Of course we still had to wait how all would settle again,  but he was moderate optimistic.
Tonnes of weight fell of my shoulders!

I visited Jan Yesterday afternoon and of course he was terribly tired, but that didn;t matter. He still wss there! I saw the belly and I think he has quite a scar there, but that can heal. It will all take time, but that doesn't matter too much.
Gosh, I was soooo happy to be able to give him a little kiss and look into his eyes and hold his hand!!!!
In an hour or two I will go to the hospital again and see how he is feeling today. We just will have to take it day by day, won;t we?
Good, that was our week.

I will finish now, I think my laundy it just about ready, so I can hand it out, before it is time to go to Jan.
Please stay safe and look after yourselves and your loved ones. Life sometimes has nasty tricks up it's sleeves!

Probably last of the summer days.

Goodafternoon everybody!

Yes, this weekend we have still summer weather. Yesterday it felt already niice, but we had lots of wind, today there is much less wind and the temperature feels good. I think we reach around 21-22C. But..... next week temperatures will drop already, not too much but all counts in this time of year LOL.
Temperature will be around 17-19C and slowly the nights will be colder too, to under 10C, and you can feel that.
In the evenings the room feels chilly and so we put on the central heating on, and I wished we could have waited with that somewhat longer.(it all takes gas and electricity, and it isn;t very cheap these days).

It was a quiet week, I did achive a few things(small things, but okay, I did them hahaha), not interesting enough to mention though(and some I don;t remember off anymore anyway LOL).
But..... I did try out the washing machine! yeah, and I already know that the program I tried, will not be used a lot, it takes a lot of time! So next round of laundry will be done in another and shorter program, that will do the job just as good(I think).
And I also tried out the oven last Friday, just for a little thing, but it works fantastic(after I figured out how exactly use it, hahaha).
Today I made us an oven dish for dinner, yeah! I have cannelloni with minced meat, tomatoe sauce and bechamel sauce and covered with grated cheese.
It has been such a long time ago that we had that for dinner, so I am really looking forward to it! I will add a tomatoe salad to it and for desert there is a yoghurt with peach taste. Not bad for a Sunday.
I don;t make the cannelloni tubes myself. I buy them ready made, dried, and i just have to fill them with the minced meat (fried with diced onions, fresh basilicum leaves chopped, some pepper and salt).
It's much easier than making your own, although that always taste just a little bit better. Still, it is too much work for just us two. Why do it difficult if you can do it the easy way.
Only have to put it in the oven for about 25-30 minutes and yummie, it will be ready.

I cannot think of anything else to tell, so I better leave it for today and hope to have more things to share next week.
Stay safe and have a lovely week!

The kitchen looks renewed fo a part!

Good afternoon everybody!

Our weather is going up and down and up and down again. Frustrating!
Last week we had some rather cold days(if you compare with the heat we had before), we reached may be 17-18 C, sometimes cloudy and sometimes a it of sunshine. Also a day or two with dark clouds, making it look all very gloomy, and a day with lots of rain. This weekend we have better weather, with temperatures around 20-21C, sunshine so it looks nice and also feels quite good.
But that will be over soon. Next week is expected cool weather with may be temperatures between 15./16 to at the most 18C. Brrrrr, that will be a difference. We will need to put on the heating at times I guess, to be comfortable when we are sitting in the room.
Oh well, it is to be expected of this time of year, I only hoped for a bit longer summerlike temperatures.

Yes, it really happened! I have my new appliances, whoohoo! Last Thursday two guys came with the stuff, early morning at about 9.30 and I think they were ready with it all at about 13.00 a.m. Gosh, it looks a bit different now.
 I also have a spare pladce in the kitchen now where I had my dishwasher. We didn;t buy a new one, because I can do the dishes and that myself, it is done so quickly, no need to have a machine doing it for me. It uses a lot of water, more than I use by hand. But now we have to figure out waht to do with the space. Best would be to make some shelves there and use it for my pans or something like that. I donlt know if we can find a ready made cupboard of the size needed and what it will cost. Or may be we can find someone who could make us what we want. Till we figured out what to do I can hid the gap with a little curtain, that will look at the least better than that dark hole LOL.
Next week I will try out the oven, first have to look into the booklet to read the meaning of all the little drawings. All is rather obvious but I feel better when I first saw the explanation in the booklet.
After a few time it will all be very easy going.
I am happy that finally we were able to replace some of the old stuff, because they were really at the end of life! LOL.
Best had been to may preplace the whole kitchen(with cupboards and so) but that we cannof afford. So for now, it will do.

Oh we also did  buy something else at the same time. Not long ago we bought ouselves a new tv. Well, we werenlt all too happy with the sound. So now we have a soundbar and that makes a lot of difference. Sound is much better and you also can adapt it to your liking or to the program.
Pffff, that were a lot of expences in short time.
Necessary? Yes, most of it and the soundbar? in a way to, and why not give ourselves a little present?

Next project will be to find somebody who can take away an old tree in our garden. The tree is dead, not too big, but overgrown with ivy and it is bending over to one side. I fear it will break when there will be a storm and then the damage might be quite big. specially when it fall is into the neighbours garden.
One of our beighbours migth know somebody who could do it for us for a not too heavy price(when I call a specialized company for it, I think it will cost me a lot of money). Let's see what this person will charge us(if he wants to do it) and then we can decide. But it has to be done this autumn.

Another good thing from having the new appliances is, that we had to clear out the fridge, and one or two cupboards and drawers, so the men could easily connect some pipes etc.
It gave me the chance to look over all the stuff and clear out some of it. It feels so good when you finally decide to throw some things away, and get rid of some things that take room and that you never use(so it came out seeing it coming out of the cupboards LOL). Okay, it wasn't all too much but again a start.
It is unbelievable what you gather over the years, specially when you have a house where there is quite some room to stuck stuff away for a while ROFL.
I will have to do that kind of clean out several times more, believe me, because we have far too much of everything standing and lying around!
Good to bear that in mind and when I have another burst of energy I should do some cleaning out again.

The daughter of Heidi, Séverine, is zstudying now! She is doing a study to become speach therapiste. I think it is great. She has to travel to another city, about an hour travel all together, with the subway and then also tram or bus. And her mother is worrying a bit about that. I understand, because she is still a yongster, only 17, and then all alone making the travel, specially when it dark in wintertime and so. But it seems most of the time she can travel with one or two other students, doing the same study, so that is reassuring.
I hope Séverine will finish the study, it takes at least 3 years, and isn't that easy as it may seem. I wish her all kind of luck.

Okay, that is it I think for this week. Time to grab a bite(it will end in a little sandwich I think hahaha) and then perhaps already prepare a bit for the dinner this evening.
And also I can perhaps sit for 15 minutes in the sunshine, taking advantage of it while I can, because next week I don't think it will nice enough.
Have a wonderful week everybody, try to stay safe and healthy!

Sunday, September 08, 2019

This week I will have the new appliances!

Goodafternoon everybody!

The weather isn't great for the last few days, but a little rise of temperature is coming this week.
We had quite some rainshowers, also sunshine, one or two days with too much wind, we even had to start the central heating on in the evening, not for long, just to make it feel comfortable. I really do hope that temperatures will rise again and stay for a while around 21-22C at daytime and that night temperatures will not go too low yet.

There wasn;t much going on last week, although I had one day an injection of energy suddenly and I took advantage of it to clean on top of the kitchen cupboards. Yeah, it was necessary. I always put on some newspapers or kitchen paper on them, which helps a lot against  getting dirty. But still it needs a cleaning every now and then. It is taking some energy, because I have to climb up a ladder and down again and up again etc. etc. Still, I am happy I did it, even cleaned some little windows that I only can reach with climbing up the ladder, so I was rather happy with myself LOL.
And I also did it now, because I expected the guys with the new appliances soon.
I had hoped they would come this last week, but had no phonecall. So I called, but they didn;t call back and then Jan went there on Saturday to ask why not calling back and when they thought they would come placing the new stuff.
It seemed they had some trouble with trucks not working or so, could be true and they had a lot of work(the last thing I do believe). But okay, now they will come on Thursday, between 10.00 and 12.00 morning.
Oh, I will be so happy to have it all finally and I am getting even a bit nervous about it. I will have to take time to read the instruction books of the apppliances, most of it will be simple enough to handle, but I always have trouble with instruction books. I wonder why often the instructions are written in such a way that it looks aweful difficult, and once you get the hang of it it is rather simple?????

Well, we will see how it all will go, First the installation of the things, hopefully the guys will not encounter any hidden problems!

Pity that slowly autumn is getting into the garden. Lots of plants lost their flowers, although we still have some blossoms here and there. The hollyhocks are still blooming, and also the roses are showing a second life! Jan already took out our tomatoe plants, we had a few tomatoes of them, but now a great harvest. Now we only have to clean the plastic pots, take out the used soil and so. We can use the soil from the pots in the borders, there it casn recycle itself, so to speak. Some parts of our borders need some more soil and this is a good way to do it. It isn;t always necessary to buy bags full of new soil.
If next weekend the weather will be nice enough, I think we will replace some smaller bushes. We probably will cut back and then dig out one of our hortensias( the white one), because it isn;t really pretty anymore. I have a cutting from it standing in an other part of the garden, so I still will have a white one and it is kind of special to me. I once got it from a good friend of ours, lots of years ago as small plant, and it grew and flowered well for many years. Our friend died long ago at rather young age, so it is a memory of her.
Now I still have the cutting of the original to hold on to the memory.
In it's place we will plant another hortensia, a dark red one that at the moment grows in a pot, but is getting to big for it.
Also have to replace a smaller azalea, with a fantastic color of flower, so it will be more in sight when it flowers.
There always is work in a garden, which I don;t mind, but some things will get tougher to do, the more we get older. But for the moment we can handle it still rather well, we'll see how it goes the next few years.

Also I am looking around for a new laptop(two actually),  can buy a new one but that is rather expensive, so that will be the last option. I am sure I can find soon a good second hand one, that will serve me for a couple of years.
First the new appliances and then the new laptops and then the installing of the programs I always use and that in windows 10! Oh dear, I hope I will not encounter too many problems with it.

At the moment, when Jan and I are at our computers (most of the time Jan reading the news and then playing a game and me at times reading some blogs and then playing a little game, not yet ready for designing again sorry), we put on "old" records we sometimes didn;t play for a very long time. And it is nice, you know! Sometimes it brings memories, and sometimes you didn;t even know you had some songs on disc. It isn;t easy to remember which artists we all have, because I think we have around 600 records, then we also have quite some cd's, so music enough!

Good, that is it about for today. I think  will make myself a cup of tea, play may be a little solitaire and later on watch a bit of sport on tv.
I am having a really easy Sunday, and it includes the dinner.Yesterday I made us a chicken soup, well filled and there is still so much left that we will have that today too! Perhaps just a sandwich with butter with it and our stomach will be filled again. If we get a biit hungry later in the evening we always can take something like a sandwich or may be some frankfurters( most of the time  have one or two cans with in the cupboard, always handy to have).

Wishing you a lovely week, hopefully you will all stay safe from any hurricanes, or heavy rainshowers, or extreme heat(all depends where you are living obviously).
See you next Sunday!
