Hoping for Warm Weather Throwback Tuesday #40

hoping for warm weather

And another week closer to nice warm weather, at least we are hoping! Gerben has a new hobby, barbeque. That is to say, he has pretty much everything he needs now, I hope. Now he has to put the meat on it! But he is very busy picking the right meat, we only eat organic meat, and make the sauces and rubs. Nice though! I am looking forward to a culinary summer!

Getting ready for spring

Last week was quite a good week. Not in terms of Corona, because the rules here are far from being relaxed and vaccinations will still take a long time. But Tuesday night I had a Zoom with Shelbee and Sheila! So much fun! And chatted again for almost an hour and a half. It’s just like sitting in the living room together. Also nice that we have so many similarities with the three of us.

Wednesday my sister came by and we had a nice chat and lunch. Wednesday night had such severe cramps again, I really would not know why. But I did work out on Thursday. When spring comes I always want to clean everything in the house. Such as washing the windows etc. And cleaning cupboards. So that when the weather is really nice, you don’t have to do anything extra at home. So Thursday after exercising and blogging I cleaned the windows insite. It went pretty well, it is not the most sensible thing to do after working out for me, and I was glad about that. 

Hoping for warm weather

On Saturday I first worked out and then blogged, because Gerben was outside and it was just to cold outside for me. Sunday we went to the national park again. But the wind was blowing hard and still very cold. We had hoped to see piggies. Instead, we saw a young duckling. Also nice. When we got home it took hours again before I got a little warm and I also felt very out of breath and unwell.

I am a bit worried over my health the last few weeks. (Can’t say I feel energetic and good. Still hoping that the warmer weather, and the last week of antibiotics will do me good.) Fortunately it went better when we went to eat because Gerben had done his best again with a delicious fish risotto. In the evening watched the Grand Prix, Max second place!

Have a great week all!

    Hoping you soon have some real spring weather in your neck of the woods. We had a beautiful day today and I was all over the place. Pulling weeds, cleaning the back porch, doing laundry. I am like you, I want to clean and clean when this season arrives. Need to settle down and do one room at a time and get it done.

    What a great find in that gently preloved dress. I like the way you styled it with the belt, cardi and boots. I am so ready for the dressing rooms to open in the stores here. Hate buying things without trying them on.

      I really like online shopping I have to say. Just trying on everything in my own speed. Isn’t it just lovely to be outside

    I hope your weather warms up soon and vaccines make their way over there soon so you can get back to normal. I can’t wait to hear about what Gerben puts on the bbq! It’s so nice too that you, Shelbee, and Sheila were able to chat and had so much in common. Zoom is really a great platform for bringing people together!

      Yes it is, and it’s so easy. Better then just writing to each other!

    Sorry to hear your health has been troubling you. Hopefully the weather will warm up (and stay that way!) soon. It’s back to being pretty cold here too and I miss those teasing warm days of spring. I love your new pre-loved dress!

    Spring is my favourite! It’s autumn here and currently hot & cold, can make it a little tricky to choose what to wear and how much to layer. Hope you get to enjoy your spring soon x

    I’m sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well. It must be so worrying for you! I’m amazed you have the energy for cleaning windows. I absolutely hate it and so does Jos, so if it weren’t for our window cleaner, it wouldn’t be done very often. Mind you, we still have to clean the inside, but at least we can tick the outside from our list 🙂
    I love the way you wake up most mornings 🙂 and your new, pre-loved Zara dress is gorgeous!
    I’m glad that in spite of the weather being cold and windy, you still went for a walk in the national park.
    Keeping my fingers crossed that the warm spell we are currently having will put things to right again! xxx

      Thanks Ann! The warmer weather is uplifting me a bit, I guess I am also a bit down. All the news about corona doesn’t make it any better.

    That’s so impressive that you clean like that Nancy. I never clean our windows..haha.
    Bummer about the cramps. And yet you still worked out? You’re my hero.

    I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling so well, Nancy. I’ve also been under the weather. It started on Sunday, waking with a headache and nausea which lasted all day. Then the headache went, but I had stomach cramps for a few days. Yesterday I felt like I’d run a marathon, I was so exhausted. Feeling better today though, thankfully. So perhaps it was just a bug? I hope yours will pass soon too!
    I love the photo of you and your cats in bed lol. I have the same issue…but I wouldn’t change it. I love my cuddles with the cats.
    Hugs

    Your cats are so cute! I hope that the weather warms up for you soon and that is great that Gerben enjoys barbecuing! My husband is great at it. We like to grill halibut as well as burgers. 😀 I also hope that you start feeling better. Sending healthy vibes your way! And as always, I love your outfits! 💗

    It was awesome chatting with you and Shelbee, Nancy! it’s like I’ve known you for years. Love your pretty Zara reddish dress! Ooh, that ruffle! I’m glad your weather is getting nicer, but sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well. We are rolling out our vaccines now here, and I should be able to make my appointment in a few weeks – my mom gets hers on Saturday!

    AWW, look at those kitties keeping you safe! Vizzini never cuddles that close to our faces, but likes to curl up under our arms.

    I’m so envious of the barbecuing – we don’t have an open balcony in our condo, so no BBQ for us!

    Take care, my dear!

      Oh and can’t you BBQ in that park where you used to meet up with friends?

  11. 1st April 2021 / 18:22

    Sorry you were not feeling well. If feel down and lethargic, I ask my doctor to give me a boost of vitamin B12. I feel so much more energy afterwards. I also like to have my house clean and sparkly before the season starts, It’s nice to see the sun shining through the clean glass. Enjoy your BBQ.

      Thanks Anna. I want to test my blood for vitamines but I don’t want to go to the GP now.

    Nice to read about what is going on in your life. Take it easy. I often become too obsessed with cleaning in spring time and end up overworking myself. Working out is good but it is also important to listen to what our body is telling us. Lovely photos and outfits. Have a nice Easter weekend!

      You are so absolutely right but I am quite deaf on what my body tells me…..and I know better then to ignore….
