It’s Barbeque Time! Throwback Tuesday #10

barbeque outfit

A sun-drenched week in the Netherlands!  Finally summer. And how, immediately we have a heat wave. And what does a heat wave mean? Right, barbecue time! And because it looks like it will be hot here for at least another week, we also have bbq’s next weekend scheduled!

What was going on last week

I got the blood test results. I had requested a telephone consultation. Because I was like, if the blood testing is already so bad, corona wise, I will not take that risk anymore. The GPs are in the same building so why should I expect that safety precautions would be better there.

All was well except kidney function had declined. So I need to drink more. Unfortunately not wine! Furthermore, it was a quiet week, reading a lot in the garden. Gerben had set up the swimming pool, so I kept myself cool, in there.

Barbeque weekend!

Friday I went to the hairdresser, let the old age work away. And as always, you really don’t leave there without a styled haircut! Then dropped by friend Gerdi to eat a piece of cake in honor of her birthday! Saturday evening we had a barbeque with friends. Great to sit down and not have to do anything.

On Sunday we gave ourselves a barbeque for my father and his wife and my sister and her partner. Delicious though! I will miss that enormously when it gets colder again. For the time being it seems to remain warm for a while. Three more weeks and then we also have a holiday! I am really counting down!

Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.

I would love it if you could follow me on Instagram!

    Very cute maxi dress! Sounds like you’re taking the best advantage of the warm weather. I’m sorry your kidneys are misbehaving.

      Thanks, I think a bit more water will solve that problem!

    We are having a heatwave too, but unfortunately I’m no good at all with hot weather. And there’s no escaping it in our tiny walled garden! But I won’t complain too much as it’s giving me the opportunity to wear all my hot weather clothes! I do agree with you about Hydrangeas looking great in every stage they’re going to, even when they’re becoming brown, like ours do to. Sorry to hear about your kidneys. I hope you manage to avert more serious problems by drinking lots and lots. What a shame wine doesn’t count 🙂 Your hair looks gorgeous and what fun to have your family over for a barbecue!

      Thanks Ann! Well it is to hot here. I am now beginning to feel very tired and heavy legs and all. But in a few days it will be over!

    I’m sorry your kidneys aren’t as good as they should be. I laughed when you said drinking more but not wine. If only….

      Haha, we normally don’t, only if we have people over for dinner.

    I love your stripes, Nancy. I kind of wish we’d have a heat wave – it’s been hovering around 20-24 here, which is nice, but not HOT, you know?

    Drink more, my dear! Too bad it’s not wine (heh heh). I am going to miss outside gatherings when it starts getting colder. We have maybe 2 more months here of being able to meet up outside.

      Oh really, I think it ends here half September! 24 degrees sound good to me now. I just worked out at 31 degrees, I am exhausted!

    Oh how good a barbecue sounds! I love your dress. I had to go to the lab last week for blood work and it was hairy. People everywhere without masks. I wore a mask and a shield. Then I did tele-medicine with my NP. I am getting my hair done next week. My friend who is my stylist is coming to my house so I don’t have to go into the salon. She is such a wonderful person.

    Peace!

    It sounds like you had lots of great company and good food! I am glad that your blood work was good, but do be sure to drink lots of water! I am going for a physical on Monday. I hope I check out all okay! I love your hair in that twisty updo! So pretty! Thanks for linking up!
