Springweather coming soon

Goodday to all!

Took some time to actually sit and start a new post but here I am.
It is going upwards with me, may it be slowly, but steady and energy is coming back too in little portions.
I am not ready yet to post every few days or even every week, the break I have with computering is actually fine with me for now. Oh, I do check my mails every couple of days, and sometimes do a little game, or check something out on internet, but I am not having the urge yet to get back to designing. Don;t know why to be honest, because it gave me lots of pleasure. Well, I will get back to it some day, I guess, but it may be not in the quantity I produced before. Who knows, I'll let it come as it does and we'll see.

Spring is really around the corner here.  Last week we already had temperatures around 10-14 C, although the nights still were rather cold, but they promised us that next week there will be days with sunshine and temperatures that may reach 18C!!! Now that is good news.
All the seeds Jan put in little pots are doing quite good. Some of them still have to sprout, but others are growing real fast.
So yesterday I already put some of the bigger ones in several pots and some in the garden soil and now crossing fingers they will bloom later on.

Next two weeks I will have to put some more effort in "spring-cleaning", not that I will jump into it as mad, but  I have to do it more thourough, want to have things in order when my niece comes to us.
I do hope that the nice spring weather will still be there, it would be nice to be able to sit for a moment in the garden or take a little walk or trip, just because it is lovely weather, you know.

Cannot chat all too long now, because I have to go to my friend Heidi's house to walk the doggies. She and the family are moving house shortly and are busy in their new house today again. It isn;t too far from us either, although it takes some more time to get there, so it will be harder to go there sometimes to take the doggies for a walk.
But we already tried once or twice to leave them at daytime with us and that went rather well. So if necessary, they can bring the doggies and we take care of them and their hands will be free. Okay, our cat isn;t all too pleased with it, but he can stay in the garden if he wants. And he can go into and out of the kitchen, cause the doggies just stay in the room and cannot open the door of the room.
So Brodski always can have something to eat if he wants.
First time the doggies were here, in the late afternoon Heidi came to fetch them and then after a while Brodski came into the house again. But he refused to come into the room and that lasted for a couple of days! Next time he dared to come into the room the same evening, the doggies stayed for a few hours. WOW, what a HERO! LOL.

Last week we had elections for a new government. Well, parties were chosen and out of them will have to be formed a government. It will be rather difficult, because none of them has a majority. So it will be necessary to have a coalition of several parties, probably 4. difficult, because they have different programs and ideas and will have to come to some agreement. We will see how long it will last until we will have a new government.
There were as always lots of ideas and promises, but you will always have to compromise if you want to work together, so let's see what will be achieved in the end!

Good, now I will have to end, soon will have to go to the dogs.
I do have a kit and clusters from arlene too. It is named "Quiet Moments". Hope you can use it for some lovely layouts.
Have a wonderful day and week ahead, and till next time!

Still round, just taking slow on computering

Goodmorning everybody!

I am still around, but just do very little on the computer.
Thought however it was about time to make a little update.
Not much happening here in the house and life, which is all okay with me for now.
just trying to get back some new energy, which seems to be a hard thing. It might be a bit the time of year,  just have no idea really. But don;t worry too much, I am doing fine and doing better in little steps.
Talking of time of the year, we have some nicer weather lately, even sometimes the sun comes out for a bit and you see that nature is awakening.
Jan already did a lot in the garden, mostly pruning and cleaning up, it all looks about ready for the new season. He also has made a lot of little pots with seeds in it, now just hoping they will come to nice plants with a lot of flowers!
I got a mail lately from my niece in France, that she wanted to visit us for a few days, and see if we could swap some documents and photos of our families and that mostly of my mother's side of course.
It will be lovely to see her again after such a long time, I just hope my French will still be good enough to talk with her and her husband. Must say the French is rusty with almost no practise.
I already told her, that I gladly will give her already some albums with photos and such to take with her and give it later to her children.
With her children getting older, they get more curious about their roots.
And I am glad I can leave those things somewhere where they will be safe and a little appreciated.
My niece will come next month, just a few days before Easter, so I guess I will have to shake myself well and do some serious cleaning here, to have it all in good order when they come.
Then I will have to think about the things I can make for dinner. They are very easy people, but I want it to be nice and tasty of course.
So  will be busy coming time with that, apart from the usual things.

This is about it for now, of course i can ramble a lot more about some things, but that will be for a next time.
To compensate you again for the long silence I have a kit and some clusters for you.
Be happy and take good care of yourselves.
