Ourweather today is almost springlike. It isn;t so warm, although 8C isn;t really bad for now, but we have some sunshine, very little wind, but later this week temperatures may go down a bit, still now frost expected. It is quite different from Greece and Turkey at the moment, for example!
Yesterday was Jan's birthday and I tried to make him a nice dinner. There were a few phonecalls and cards so it was not a bad day and it just was a nice day. I had a started with a few marinaded gamba's, oh, they really were yummie. Then I had smoked salmon on toast with a two slices of hardboiled egg on it and a few thin slices of cucumber . And I made a potatoe-rootbeet-salt hering. That tasted real good too. Lots of people don;t like our hering, it is raw fish layed into salt, but we love it. Also good just like this with some diced onions, and on a sandwich or bun too. As dessert I had some strawberries with a thick cream. Later on in the evening we had our coffee with a small piece of sweet pastry.
We have some left overs from yesterday, so we will have that for dinner today, easy peasy for me, hahahaha.
I told you already that the "lease"cat Muppet visits us again , but yesterday night, already late, at about 00.30 a.m. I sudden;y saw her standing at our kitchendoor. That was a bit strange, what to do. Well, with the still rather cold nights I cannot let her stay outside, so we let her in. Perhaps she would go after a few miniutes, but less was true, she didn;t want to go outside anymore.. She stayed with us all night and also all morning today. I had not much food for her, just a few cat-snacks, I gave her that, she really wanted something to eat. I suppose, but it is just an idea, that her owner may be was out, may be just the evening, or perhaps a whole weekend? As now the lockdown is easier, you can go to a pub or restaurant or theatre till 10.00 p.m. evening, but still it was strange she came so late to us. We'll see what will happen this evening or night.
I didn;t have a good night sleep last night, because I had a bit stomach trouble, and it happens a bit too often lately. I think it is time I make an appointment with my doctor and may be they will have to make an endoscopie again in hospital. The last one was 3 or may be even 4 years ago. At that time the doctor there said that may be they would contact me after around 3 years to make a new one, just to have a good look. But with all that corona stuff, lots of not directly necessary help is persponed. So I guess sme with me. But if the stomack (most is the upcoming acid, despite my medicin for it)bothers now too often it is probably time to go to the doctor. I always need some time to finally call my doctor for something(not for Jan, then I am very decisive, but for myself, pffffff).
We'll just see what happens next week.
For the rest we cannot complain, it is a quiet life at the moment, soon there will be garden work needed, if the weather stays as good. I think Jan will start sowing some seeds, and it is good for him, to have something to keep him busy. Our nieghbour gave Jan a small greenhouse, a very simple one, but good enough. I found a picture of it
Simple but good enough. And it is rather big, so Jan can start sowing a lot of seeds, LOL.
And I made a picature(two in fact) of my last finished project, a crocheted blanket. It was a simple pattern stitch but nice and it works quite fast.
And at the moment I am making another blanket, but in a lilac yarn, in a waffle stich. I will still nedd this week I think to finish it. May be even two, when I've decided which border I will make on it. So suddenly I am gone from knitting and on to crochet. As long as my hands keep busy, specially when watching tv, it is okay. What I will do with the blankets? No idea, LOL. May be a gift here or there or I will donate it to a charity of some kind.
Good, that's about all for today, time to sit down on the couch, crochet a bit and watch probable some tv.
I wish you all a wonderful week, safe, not too cold or too warm weather,
