It is getting frisk now,

Goodafternoon everybody!

yeah, the weather definately is changing slowly. We still have a rather nice day today, about 17C, with here and there a bit of sunshine in the morning but getting cloudier during the day.
And later this week we will not reach a higher temperature of 12-14C.
It is a big change to the weather we had till now.

Oh boy, Jan did a big job this week, he painted all the wooden posts of the windows and door of the extension outside. Well, some parts really needed a new coat of paint, and now the wood is well protected again.
It took a lot of his energy, so he has to take it easy for a couple of days.
At the moment he is going to plant a few bulbs in the garden, some tulips and some daffodils. He already has planted some small tulips in a planter, they should flower in march/April.
Something like on this photo I borrowed from the web
They are called Mix of dwarf tulips Praesens.

We had a quiet week, I managed to ge some stuff done (cleaning some more, very boaring but when it is done, you feel kind of satisfied with yourself, hahaha).
Also we tried to enjoy the last good days with rather high temperatures and lots of sunshine. With a thicker sweater or so, and in the sunshine it was nice walking. I didn;t take on really long walks but I went into town city once(where I found some last Christmaspresents, I soon will have to wrap them and I want to send a bix of very early, because last year it took a real long time before arriving at destination!), I also went to the market, bought some veggies, cheese and apples.
We can do with that for a whole week or may be even a bit longer with the veggies. I love to make my own apple compote, it tastes aLOT better than the ones you can buy in a pot in the supermarket.
And I need some apples for out parakeets. Yes, they have returned, i told you that last week but this morning I counted about 7 of them on our rosebow(where I hang the little nets with appleparts and sometimes some peanuts too).
I am really happy I see and hear them again.

I have today a new kit for you, named In the Library.
May be I will have something for Halloween next week, but I am not promising anything.  Perhaps I find time(and mostly inspiration and energy) to make a mini kit, I just don;t know yet.
For now I wish you a lovely Sunday and week ahead.
Thanks for visiting and please, stay safe everybody!

I'm so glad our parakeets are back. I have a few bulbs to put out in the garden too. Hopefully, Joe will plant them for me. I love the little tulips that you have planted. They are going to be so pretty when they bloom. Our weather has turned too cool too quickly for my taste. Winter is more than two months away but it feels like it is on its way here already. I'll have to start counting down to Spring again soon. I've been getting a lot of my shopping done too. Pretty soon I hope to be able to start wrapping things.

Now I'm off to read a few more blogs and then get busy on a few chores here. You have a wonderful week my friend, hugs, Edna B.

Thank you. I also planted tulips this month, but over 50. Should be beautiful when they bloom in May.

My favourite thing to do--read! Thanks so much for the beautiful mini kit! Glad to hear you are still getting some decent weather. It has just been so cool and windy here. One gorgeous day when it went to 24C!!!
Oh yes, nice the parakeets are back. I saw for the first time in my feeder a downy woodpecker. My computer faces the front window where my feeders are. Being in the city I don't get much variety but am always happy to see what comes by.
Wishing you a safe and happy week.

Thanks for the new mini kit.
Like I said in my earlier post, I've been cleaning out my electronic files. And I haven't looked around the internet to read any blogs. Shame on me. I'm sorry. I'm also starting to get the spare room cleaned out for the Grand kids to use when they get here on Friday. They are fleeing the fires in Calif and coming up here to take care of me.
Bless you and thank you for your kits. I really do use them. I love all of them.
