Finally a few photo's

 Goodafternoon everybody.

We have still nice weather, although it will change during the week (snifff). Now it is about 20C, with quite some sun, but ater this week all could be different, with rain, cluds, more wind and much lower temperatures(could be something of 16C only). I am not ready for that yet, but I will have to get used to it soon, because autumn weather will be in store, I fear.

This morning I first had my cup of tea and my "quiet"moments in watching a detective, having a sandwich too and in company of...........our lease cat, which sat next to me on our couch, even sleeping happily. Yeah, she still is visiting us every day, and during the night from around 1 or 2 o'clock she is mostly lying in her little basket on the cupboard in the garden. We will see how we will can make it more sheltered for her during colder and wetter times(if she still will be there at night).

 I've tried to make a photo of her, here it finally is:


Isn;t it a beauty? As we don;t know a name, we call her "Muppet". 

Then I made a bit later some coffee for Jan and me and after that( you see, we took it all easy) I changed the duvet covers and sheets etc. on our bed. Then Jan started to look through a part of our dvd's and cd's, to see which ones we want to keep and which ones can go. I will have to go through them also perhaps. It all takes such a lot of room and a lot we don't watch or listen to anymore, so why keep it? After we will have cleared out a lot of cupboards and such, it will still looks as if almost nothing disappeared, hahahaha.  It is amazing what you collect over the years, and inherited from the parents etc.

It was a more or less quiet week. Jan did some clearing up, meaning he dismanteled a low cupboard that needs to go away, it was hard work, the shrews and stuff that held it together were tight and not easy to remove. Now it waits to be picked up one day by bulky waste collection service. Oh, we have already quite some stuff ready for it, so I think I will call them somewhere this week to make an appointment for it. Oh, it will feel so good to got rid of a lot of stuff that only takes in room and has no use anymore,

I also did some garden work, meaning I did cut a lot of the ivy, that always grows as mad and needs a lot ore control pruning than we do, but hey, it is hard work. Next week I should try to find some courage to do a next bit.

We still are very happy with our curtains, I have one photo, which isn't really doing them credit but perhaps you get an idea.

I am busy with trying to make me a sweater, if I will succeed I don't know, but I like the pattern that I use, which is very easy. It is called the Hurdle stitch.

Cast on multiples of 2 

Row 1(Right Side) Knit all

Row 2(Wrong Side) Knit all

Row 3: * Knit 1, Purl 1*

Row 4: * Knit 1, Purl 1*

It looks like this

Well, this is it for today.

I am sure i did forget to mention something, but cannot believe it is very important. Wishing you all a good week in safety and good health and if possible with a few laughs!

Muppet is beautiful. I think you should let her come indoors, especially for the colder weather that is coming. She may be just adopting you and Jan. That is how we got our house cat, Blackie. He showed up cold and hungry and adopted us. Your new curtains look wonderful. I'll bet they make everything look brand new. It's getting cooler here too. Alas, I do not look forward to the winter weather. But Spring will be back in a few more months. so we have that to look forward to. Your new sweater pattern looks very interesting. I can't wait to see pictures of it as it progresses. Now I'm off to try to accomplish something today. You have a super week my friend, big hugs, Edna B.

Love the colour of the sweater. Nice pattern. I use that sometimes for different things, sometimes dish clothes.
Your curtains look lovely and it makes a house so cosy when everything is new!
Muppet is a very pretty cat and I think you've been adopted!!
Weather here up and down....yesterday +32C, today going to be +19C
I will be working on my digital scrapbooking today. Have a great week and you and Jan take care.
