First I will give you a little update about Edna.
The last news I had was from one of her daughters on the 25th of January, teling me that Edna was at that time already two days in hospital with breathing problems. She seems to have moved in with her other daughter, Deanne, which perhaps is a good thing, so all day someone is around her to keep an eye on her.
Audrey(daughter I had contact with) wrote me, that she only has every now and then a little texte message from her mother, very short, because Edna doesn;t want to worry her. As soon as there is more known, Audrey will let met know. She said she will let her mother know that a lot of people asked for her and worry about her. Let us just hope that Edna soon will be out o hospital and in reasonable health again. All we can do is send sometimes a little prayer for extra support.
Yesterday it was a little bit difficult day, because it was Jan's birthday. He should have become 70 years old then. But in the morning my best friend came to visit me and have a cup of coffee together and a chat, so I wasn;t alone and that was a good thing.
Her daughter Séverine had made for me and also for Jan a little present, and I was so touched by it. She made an effort to finish it in time and now her present has found it's place. Here a photo of it. It's the little bear at the left side of Jan's photo.
I also sent out a formular to be able to collect Jan's ashes. I decided that I would like to take it home and leave it in peace for a few months perhaps, wait till it is nice weather(Jan hated the cold, LOL) and then go with my best friend to some place where we can leave his ashes to "recycle". If possible near a beautiful tree in the ground. We'll see in time.
Last week I have been busy with clearing out again, This time I tackeled the cupboard, which is rather large and had a good rummage through all of them. It ended up in having a big shopper full of glasses, and also a smaller cardboard box full of glasses mixed with some China, cups and saucers .
Then I washed up all the glasses that were left over and re-organized them a bit and now it looks fantastic again. The large shopper I put out on the street with a little note on it: "This is glassware, free to take" and when I looked out about an hour later it was gone already.
I also went into town to a store where they sell cheaper stuff(just not a dollar store) and bought there some paintrollers and stuff for it so that when the walls will be tackled we have all we need. I just need to buy one or two big buckets of wall paint to have enough for all the walls.
May be I will start already somewhere this week with the little hallway, that isn;t a bit project and I think I have enough paint left from another time. It depends a bit on how this week will go. It has no rush, so I can start also some days later.
I try to keep busy as you see, which is a good thing to do. Of course I do take here and there a day "free"of a to-do list, and have a pyjama day.
This is about all I can tell for now, not too much, but I did want to make a little post, I must not let that go. It's okay to have at times a little longer break, but it also is nice to keep in touch with the "world"a bit like this.
Have all a wonderful week, keep safe and till next week.
