An "old"friend is back!!

Goodmorning everybody!

All real quiet around here and early in the morning. Yes, Jan is working again in the morning. And Sunday morning and Monday he has even two shifts, one in the morning and then from 5 p.m. till 10 in the evening too!
That's more like it, and hopefully it will stay that way the next months!
The leak isn;t handled yet, it seems. Yesterday we had some rain showers and we had a small share of it inside the kitchen again. Not as bad as it was, but it's still no good. I guess Jan has to go to the neughbours again this afternoon. Some day it will be dealt with(I hope).
As Jan is the working party now in our little family LOL, I'll have to do my share at home, at least, I feel it that way. So I get busy the times he is working, with all sorts of things a house needs, and I try to put on a tasty dinner.
Wednesday I made tagliatelle, with a creamy suace and little pieces of broccoli and chopped tunafish, and tomatoe salad to it. It tasted good, but pasta isn;t Jan's favourite food LOL. But it makes a nice change from the potatoes, meat and veggies sometimes.
So yesterday I made a greater effort and we had chicken breast filet, filled with some salami and camembert, simple boiled potatoes and fresh spinache leaves, fried in a bit of oil, with some chopped onions and garlic to it. And as desert an apple out of the oven, filled with some buuter with brown sugar and raisins mesh, bit of cinnamon to it and when ready some whipped cream over it. It was yummie.
Now Friday is generally a "free"day, concerning the cooking LOL! Jan makes something himself and me too. And you'd be surprised what the result of it can be sometimes. The most strange combinations of things, but wonderful.

I have wonderful news to tell. My "old"creative friend Minky is back on internet!!!! Yeah, she already posted a looooong post on her blog and even prepared a little freebie for you. But this could be the start of a renewed collaboration of fantasy-kits and things. Oh, I missed that, and yes I've made some fantasy kits, but it wasn;t quite the same. But first welcome her back and she has some great news to tell! Here a preview of the freebie she offers. Like to her blog is HERE

Also had some news about Arlene. Not only she had to deal with her flu, but she has a sinus infection too, the poor thing! She is on anti biotics and is feeling a little bit better. I told her to take care of herself first and then think about some new clusters, but she dragged herself to the computer LOL and sent me wonderful things again from the last few kits.
Today some great clusters made with the Sounds of Yesterday kit.

Oh, I just remember that today is again fish feeding time at Heidi's home!!! Pffffff, good that it came into my mind. Not that it would hurt them to wait another day, but it's better to go there every other day. Well, with that in mind I should hurry up a bit, if I want to do that too this morning, before Jan gets back from work.
Today the last part of the Attic Chest kit. And then may be I will have some inspiration this weekend for another "regular" kit and something fantasy for Minky's blog. Whee, busy times arrive again ROFL!!!
Well, have a wonderful weekend, all of you and we'll meet again on Monday.

Hi, Kyra,

Somehow, coming here and reading your posts feels like home. LOL I miss ya. Life just has a way of playing by its own set of rules, eh?

The dishes you have mentioned sound so fresh and inviting. I've lost yet more weight, but, the spirit is still good. My mom used to make a pilaf. You say Jan doesn't care for pasta. This is so easy.

Saute a pound(cut small) smoked, or any preferred kind, of sausage. Without draining too much, saute into it one cup of rice. When rice turns opaque, add two cups water and one can tomato sauce(15-16oz or roughly two cup size) and cook until rice has absorbed the sauce, about 20-25 minutes. You can doll it up with seasonings, if wanted, and serve with bread and butter. It is delicious!

I think it is great that Minky will online again - every day! I burst into tears! Blessed Ian! I look so forward to what is to come! I know you do, too.

Well, that is all for here. I'll try to get an e-mail off to you. Things to tell! LOL

Good morning Kyra. You do have lot of good news. It's good to hear that Jan's job is picking up nicely, and all is better with Arlene. I'll have to hop on over and visit Minky too. I've missed her. Today is a lot cooler (72 F degrees). It will feel good after all the heat. Now I'm off to work. Now I'm off to work. You have a wonderful day, hugs,s Edna B.

Good morning Kyra:)
Aww.... sure hope your neighbors get that water problem fixed for you.It's hard to take care of the problem when it comes from someone else.
It sounds like you have no problem keeping busy while Jan is working. Just don't over do it.:)
Thank you so much for sharing your new kit with me. I finally caught up with your blog posts and the downloads again.:)
Hope you have a fantastic weekend my friend.:)

Hello Kyra, Thank you for the lovely downloads.
Just want to let you know that the link for Arlene's download has extra on it so that has to be taken off to get the correct web address.
Have a great weekend...

Sun is leaving France, and we'll have rain too...! Today I've bought a new english dictionary, because the other one was so old, when I was a student, LOL.
Thank you for your recipes, and for part3 of this wonderful kit.
Arlene did beautiful clusters with your creations (thanks!).
Have a nice week-end,
