Quality time with friends and family has never been more important than now. In recent months we, and no doubt you too, have seen our family and friends far too little. Now that the weather is so nice, we can have a barbecue and eat outside again, and get together with them. And that’s what we did!

Quality time with friends and family
Monday and Tuesday were nothing special, the usual, working out, blogging and feeling tired. On Wednesday I went cycling with Denise. It was not super sunny weather, temperature of 19 degrees Celsius. Which is 3 degrees to cold for me. We had a delicious lunch en route in a very nice town, Doesburg. Very touristy, and too busy. We cycled 40 kilometers and in the evening I was exhausted. But it was fun. just some cycling is quality time to these days. From Thursday, summer finally came back to the Netherlands, so finally time to read in the garden again! I have started with the new Karen Slaughter!
Now more then ever spending time with your loved ones is so important
Friday is always my cleaning day and I was soon finished. It was over 30 degrees and very stuffy, so every step I took outside I was breathless. The fact that a junkyard in the nearby village was burning did not help either. Smoke was visible in half of the Netherlands. Not normal, it was just dark outside! I was standing in the bathroom when it started and thought, hey where is the sun? Is it going to rain. But then all the sirens made it clear there was something going on.
I was again looking forward to a wonderfully quiet Friday evening, but Gerben was only home at 9:30 PM. We still had a nice dinner outside and saw the owls! Saturday we had a bbq at our friends. That gives me energy. Socialize with people I love, while enjoying food and wine! Sunday we celebrated my father-in-law’s birthday in my brother-in-law’s garden. And as always, we ordered pizzas! The hole family got together and we kept us to the 1,5 metre rule. It was very doable. How’s that for quality time! Then watched the Grandprix at home. Was still exciting in the end!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
