We have in general not bad weather, sometimes it is the wind that makes it feel a bit colder(coming from the North), but at the moment we have again lovely weather, with some wind, okay, but lots of sunshine.
There was even a little bit of rain yesterday, but not enough to keep the garden happen for a longer time.
The only ones that are happy with it are the blackbirds, because after it has rained you always see them hopping around and getting a lot of wurms out of the ground. So for them it is a festivity.
Temperatures are around 17-20C later this week may be even a bit higher.
Last Monday Jan and I did get all that pruning stuff at the street and there were lots of sacs and some bundles and later(as we agreed with them) our neighbours put there an additional 6 or 7 sacs with cut ivy to it.
The picking up service did come very early next morning, wow.
Glad we got rid of it, we had it in our garden for more than a week.
I also did make a phonecall to my accountant, to to ask if he received all the taxpapers in good order(I like to be sure). well, all arrived and he will send the the declaration in time to the tax office. So that's done, and now we wait to see if we have to pay some moneyon top. I count with it for a certain amount, if that will be lower, well, that's okay.
Jan wanted to do another job this week, the window cleaning of the front windows. But he didn;t get to it. I don;t know exactly what was wrong with him, but he said he didn;t feel really perky, bit of trouble with the belly and stomach. So better he took it real easy for a couple of days. I think already yesterday it was a lot better, not yet quite, but it seems today it is all good again.
so if it stays that way, may be later this week we will attack those windows LOL. At the same time we can clean them inside and also wash the lace curtain.
That's one of the things that we need to do.
There hasn;t much changed about the semi lockdown we have here. And it will stay that way I think at the least till the end of April, may be even till mid-May. Then may be we will have a re-start of the economy in stages. Every time a few things that can start or open again, like schools, perhaps restaurants, coffeshops etc( under strict conditions of course). It still will be a difficult time for longer.
I think it is better to do it slowly and prudent, and not have to regret a fall back and have a second outbreak of the virus.
Oh, I was surfing a bit on the net this week, just to see if there also still was something nice to see and yes, there was enough.
And to give you a little bit of happy feeling I gathered a few links, that might lift your spirits up a bit and make you smile.
If you want something more about nature look at this
and if you want to have a really good laugh
Now about time to take a look at the stew that is on the stove, has to stay on for at least an hour more, ay be even a bit longer. It is chopped lamb meat, lots of onions in it, also fresh paprika, cut in larger pieces, and mushrooms.
I will boil later some potatoes and perhaps make some salad or boil some grean beans, not sure yet LOL.
I hope you are all still okay and are holding on. Not always easy, but what has to be done, well, has to be done.
Take care and till next week!
