We love to eat outside and finally the weather is perfect for it, especially to throw a bbq! Can’t we have these sunny days the hole year please. I am fully enjoying it! This week it will be very hot again, bikini time!
Buying a new bicycle is not that easy
On Monday Gerben had an online course and in the afternoon we went to a bicycle shop to look at another one for me. This was the bicycle shop where I bought my current bicycle in 2013. In the meantime the shop has a new owner and what a disappointment! I know exactly what I want and need, and then they provide me with bicycles that don’t work for me. What a waste of time.
When we got back home I felt like having a bbq and Gerben went to the butcher to buy some meat and salad and it was delicious! Sat outside all evening. Like we did the rest of the week.
Worked out again on Tuesday morning. Been busy with all sorts of things. I sat outside for a while but actually it is too hot to sit in the sun. On Wednesday I went to another bicycle shop and they helped me very well. I did a test ride on a few bikes and next week I’ll go with Gerben and then I’ll decide which one it will be. And the computer man called that my ordered laptop has arrived! Yeah, after almost six months.
Last Saturday I brought my old laptop to him and he transferred everything and in the afternoon it was ready! So this week I will start with the new one! Worked out again on Thursday, ironed the laundry (I hate that so much) did some cleaning and read in the sun and in the evening I had a Teams meeting.
Bbq weather and going out for dinner
On Friday I cleaned a little bit, and in the evening we went out for dinner with friends. That was fun, so long ago that we did that. On Saturday I worked out and in the afternoon we took some outfit photos and in the evening we watched the telly. We hardly watch television when the weather is so good, we like to sit outside as long as possible. But Saturday evening was quite chilly. On Sunday my father and his wife came over for a bbq. The weather was perfect for it, not to warm at all. So good to catch up. What a wonderful weekend it was! On to a red hot week!
Wanted to show you how I have organized my jewelry. I read Jodie’s post about how she organized it and I was so envious! Take a look, it looks amazing!
Have a great week!
I love your jewelry displays! I also like all of the looks with the black dress, but hair up if you aren’t wearing a belt, and I prefer the skinnier belt over the wide one. But I LOVE your first look with the maxi skirt – you are so chic in it!
Good luck with your bike hunt, Nancy!
Oh yes, that is a good idea to do the hair up without the belt! Yes do you like that maxi skirt? It is pre loved, something I almost never wear, but now more and more, maxi skirts that is!
Fun to see how you organize your jewelry. I am glad you found a bike! We still haven’t decided on a bike rack for our van. They are very expensive when you want one for 6 bikes! It is too hot to enjoy our porch right now and still too many bugs even with them spraying the yard. Less mosquitoes but little bugs still bite. I set up the tent for the boys in the backyard yesterday and slept there with them. They loved it. Hopefully now they can sleep out there without me.
Haha, oh you first have to sleep with them! Haha, that’s fun! Yes we have a lot of bugs too at the moment!
I prefer the skinny belt with the black dress. I love that bright printed maxi skirt in the first photo; it looks just perfect for a summer BBQ!
Thank you Joanne!
The black dress looks so good on you all 3 ways! I guess it just depends the mood you’re in when you wear it. But if I had a great waist like yours I’d wear belts all the time!
Like you don’t have a great waist!!
I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the hot weather – unlike me, you must be part lizard! – and that you’ve been making the most of the sunny days to barbecue and eat outside.
Loving the maxi skirt outfit on top of your post
Sorry to hear of your experience with the bike shop, so glad you found another one which can provide exactly what you need. Good news about your laptop too. I think I need one to transfer everything when I buy my next one, as I always find that quite nerve-wracking.
Love your jewellery storage solution! xxx
I don’t transfer it myself, the guy from the shop does it for me! Yes, I guess I am part lizard! Lol.
I have those dog butt hooks…they just crack me up (Ikea right??)
And yeah for the hotter weather. It’s so nice not to be cold all the time. Love that colorful orange outfit Nancy,
Ikea indeed! Thanks Jodie!
I love that you are maximizing time outdoors and enjoying the beautiful weather! Your bbq outfit is so bright, pretty, and summery. For the black dress, all ways look great but my favorite is the wider belt as it really highlights your waist!
I hope you are having a great week so far!

My hubby is looking for a new bike, and that is a process!

That is a process indeed! Thanks Jess.
Nancy, I love that black dress so much! And I honestly like it styled all three ways equally. I am glad that you finally got your new computer and you are deciding on new bike as well. And you just got a new car recently, too! Look at you, Fancy Pants! Hehe
Indeed!! Haha, thanks love!
