Install Week Throwback Tuesday #52

last week of wearing masks

Last week was a scorching hot week. Temperatures above 30 degrees, that’s 86 fahrenheit, wink wink to Shelbee. I like it, because I love to eat outside and sit outside in the evening. the cats find it a little less sociable, they get a little less attention. But don’t worry, they really don’t come short. And I had all new things to try and to install last week!

The featured photo is hopefully the last one with a mask! As of coming Saturday we don’t have to wear them anymore!! But only if you can keep distance.

A bloody hot week, but I am not complaining

Monday I worked out and blogged, Tuesday I worked out and zoomed with Shelbee. What a joy! And on Wednesday someone came by for an introductory meeting. For the household help. In the evening when we were just having coffee, Gerben received a phone call that there was a malfunction in Germany. He had just been home for two hours. He had just returned home when I went to the gym on Thursday morning. Oh poor guy, and he never complanes! I worked out on Thursday, it was really unbearable, so hot.

Because Gerben had sleeping hours, but he didn’t sleep that long, we were able to go to the bicycle shop together in the afternoon to look for a bicycle for me. We were there at three o’clock and at seven we were back home. And then I was really tired, during the bike testing I didn’t realize it was so hot, and then you are also so busy choosing the right bike. But I bought one, or at least ordered one. Because the bike I eventually wanted was only available in silver. Silver? I never wear silver! And now it will be sprayed black! When we got home we got a take away because I didn’t have the energy to cook anymore.

Install week, not my cup of tea

Friday cleaning day and installing my new laptop. And also reinstall my phone, and I mean really from scratch. That is always such an irritating activity. All apps need to be installed, transfer all photos and contacts again. And did it help? No, my battery still doesn’t last a day! I never want a Samsung again. So all new stuff this week! Worked out on Saturday and in the afternoon we had my in-laws visit us for a barbecue.

On Sunday we cycled to my dad and his wife for Fathersday and back home we watched the Formule1. Yeah, Max won, it was such a exiting race! We had dinner outside and watched Broadchurch to find oout that is was season 1…….again…..

Have a great week all! (without having to install a lot of boring things!)

    Sounds like and looks like a lovely weekend. I have a very similar skirt that I wore for the first time yesterday. Bought it the early spring of 2020 and then never went anywhere during Covid to wear a skirt. Mine is JCrew. Still had the tags on it!! Love how you and Shelbee visit via Zoom. I am so timid but would love to get to know some bloggers in person/online.

      Well, I can tell you, it is amazing to talk to each other like you have known each other for years! Just do it Leslie!

    That’s amazing you don’t have to wear masks anymore. Too bad your phone battery doesn’t last enough even after the reinstallation. I can understand how frustrating it can be.

    It sounds like a lovely week. My phone hasn’t been holding a charge lately either and my husband keeps telling me it must be time for a new one but I keep putting it off.

      Tanks Kathrine, it’s now colder here. I like the heat but I understand it is nothing compared to your temperatures!

    Nancy, I have a leopard print scarf just like the one you are wearing!
    Having to reinstall all of your programs is a pain indeed. I hope you were able to get it finished without too much headache.
    Have a great week!

    I’m glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the heat, Nancy. Unfortunately it was a bit too hot for me, and sitting out in the garden was only possible very early in the morning or after dark.
    I’m also glad to hear that as from next week you no longer have to wear masks. Will that be both inside and outside, and in shops? Here, we only have/had to wear a mask outside in busy places, but it will still be necessary inside public places and shops. Which kind of makes sense … I won’t be ditching the masks completely until 2 weeks after I’m fully vaccinated. Keeping the distance is something a lot of people do not seem to have heard of. I had to tell off a lady standing right next to me in a shop earlier today.
    But back to your post! Poor Gerben indeed. But good news on having ordered a bike and having installed your new laptop. Such a bore about the phone. I hate all that hassle too.
    Loving the sight of that city park, and the photo of your boss, Castor 🙂 xxx

      We have to wear masks when the distance can’t be kept. And I too wear the masks for two more weeks now till I am safe. Yes, some people seem to have never heard of the rules!!

    Now that heat is nothing, LOL!! We have had 110 degree lately and that’s the norm around here!! But it’s all what you get used to, right??
    I love all the kitties. How nice you help out.
    And I love that you’re getting a bike. I think I’d want mine pink!!!

    I upgraded to a new phone earlier this year and thankfully it was a good choice. It’s too hot for us to eat outdoors now but hopefully we can start again in the fall. Now I eat breafast on the porch a few times a week.

      Such a pity you can’t eat outside the hole summer! Do you sit outside in the evening?

    I love that leopard print scarf and I’m jealous of your warm weather! I am missing spring/summer temperatures as it’s been a pretty cold winter so far here!

    Hope that you are having a lovely week 🙂

      Is it? It hasn’t been a good summer here, a few warm days but not nearly enough!

    I always forget about Father’s Day! Sounds like you had a good time. 🙂 How nice that you can forgo masks soon – it will be early September for us, once over 75% of us have had both shots.

    Love your black dress, Nancy, and glad you got another Zoom with Shelbee! So fun. Aw, your kitty Castor is so pretty!

      Thanks Sheila, I will be wearing the mask when it is busy somewhere. On the other hand I will not go anywhere busy!

    Oh my goodness, Nancy, I totally laughed out loud at your Shelbee wink, wink! Before I even read that part, I was like, “Ooh, Nancy put the temperature in C and F! Yay!” Haha. It has been crazy hot and humid here as well. We are just staying in the air conditioning today! New York lifted the mask mandates a few weeks ago and it is so nice to see people’s smiling faces!
