A "surprise"for Brodski.

Goodmorning everybody!

You might have noticed I changed my bloglayout. Yes, we are in autumn season now, so the layout should fit that LOL.
But although the weather isn't that great anymore, we still have mments of sunshine every other day or so, and after a week of really low temperatures, even for this time of year, it slowly rises a bit and we should reach about 57.
Jan and I both did little bit in the garden, but we have to pick another day and really get busy on clearing out the borders and some pots, but we have to wait for some days, it will not not rain, so the soil will be dryer and it will work a lot easier. Adn we still have lots of flowers, spceially from the dahlia's, so it's such a pity to remove them already. Not the best photo, but you get the idea!

Last Monday it was cloudy, but still not bad weather, so I decided to go to the market. It was that kind of weather when it is good to walk, and even getting too warm with your jacket on, but without it it is again too frisk. About halfway I saw standing some chairs along the sidewalk, someone apparantly wanted to get rid of them, they were kind of used, but I saw use for one of them, hahaha.
I first went to the market, and hoping they would still be there on the way back home. I did my thing at the market, bought quite some veggies, some fruit, took my time to walk around and look around and after an hour or two I went home. And yeah!!!!, the chairs were still there. Hmmmm, now get one of those home! without any further delay, I took on on my arm and walked home. Had to switch chair several times to the other arm and back, even had to put it down a few times to have a rest, but I succeeded in getting it home. ( pity it didn't fit on my little shopping car, which had been much easier).
But why did I took that task upon my shoulders???????? Just simply because our cat Brodski needed a new chair, hahahahaha. Yes, that is true!
For several years he is spending quite some time outside on an old chair(also found along the sidewalk), but it has had it's living time now, poor Brodski almost fell through the sitting part LOL!.
And just in time I saw the "new"chair. Well, the "new"one isn't completely without defects, but it will do for certainly a year or may be even two. And how quirky one can get about his or her pet? Jan even took the trouble to give it a new coat of varnish!( it also kind of "preserves the chair a bit). Yes, Brodski is happy with it and already has adopted the new chair.LOL.( and it is placed under a balcony so he can sit pretty much dry when it rains)

The rest of the week I stayed busy with the usual things we girls have to do in a house, hahaha. Every day one or two things, in between some shopping, which is good for the muscles in your legs, and the whle body, actually, moving around walking.
And I finally finished one of my knitting projects I was working on. I've made a new "blanket"as cover of our couch. For now it will do fine , it is of very soft yarn, and for winter time I think it is making you a little bit happy, just because of that bright green color in it. Soon (well, first days of December aren;t too far away anymore), the couch will be covered again with a Christmas blanket!.
It is time for me now to finish this post, the writing always takes longer than you think, and I woke up rather late this morning(around 9.30, which is late for my doing, most of the time I am awake between 7,30 and 8,30), and time flies again.
But I will not part without a freebie, and no, not one, but two! Today you will get one of the two Halloween kits I've made, (named Creepy Romance) and I will post Arlene's clusters with it as well. Oh wow, I am sometimes a lovely person, ROFL!!!!!!!!!!
I hope you will like this kit, next week  will post the other one, and it will be just in time. Adn believe it or not, I am already busy with several Christmaskits, yes, it may be early, but before you know the month of December is there and even gone. Terrible, how fast a year goes by finally.
Ahhhh, it is one of the facts of life we cannot do anything about .

I wish you all a fantastic and wonderful weekend.

Kyra, your dahlias are beautiful!! Most all our blooms have passed by except for some pink and red roses and the butterfly bush. These will linger on for a while.

I think that chair is just perfect for Brodski. He looks quite happy lying on it. What a great find, and what a wonderful mommy you are to carry it all the way home for your fur baby.

I have to say "WOW." What a wonderful job you did on your sofa blanket. It looks really nice. And the pillows are wonderful too! Yesterday, I washed Pogo's little bed cover. Now that the nights are cool, it keeps his little bed warmer and it looks so nice.

I love Halloween, and can't wait to try this new kit. It looks like such fun. Of course, I love the colors. Arlene's frame clusters are beautiful too. Thank you ladies.

I am watching the Weather Channel to see what is happening with Hurricane Patrick in Mexico. It is a wicked strong storm. Well, it's time for me to type my blog post. You have a fabulous day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

Love the dahlias...I have been trying to do so trimming etc on my flower pots, but with the illness and the stormy weather I am behind, but they are still blooming so, it is hard to work on them. Anyhow, playing catch up on my blog and my blog reading. Glad all is well and thanks for the lovely kits I had missed. Have a wonderful Sunday and I love the look of your new background! Hugs, Mat
