Saturday Evening-Throwback Tuesday #30

Saturday evenings are the best

The week started busy again. But the weekend was relaxed. Especially Saturday evening. The plumber came for maintenance on Monday. A new appointment had to be made for the car, that was yesterday. My phone still sucks. The battery will last less than a day. Is it just me or is that just too short? Tuesday after exercising and blogging I sat outside for an hour. Yes it was freezing, but with a blanket in the sun out of the wind it was quite nice. I think I also needed a breath of fresh air in my mind.

Enough to do this week

Wednesday I had to go to the dentist and I made a video call with Denise. The dentist was surprised that I only had one hole in my hole life. (this sentence sounds weird and is probably not correct, but you know what I mean don’t you) Thursday I worked out and I am now pretty good in my routine again. That feels good, my body feels strong again. With Christmas and all, my routine for working out was a bit gone. On Friday I cleaned the house. My phone is better btw, Gerben did all sort of things on it. After I was in a bad mood for days of course……you know me by now…..

Friday was my cleaning day. I love to start the weekend with a clean and tidy house. Well it is always tidy at our place because we don’t like rubbish. And we are both cleaners, so it is always clean. On Friday evenings we always eat something easy, healthy though, in front of the TV. And then the weekend can start with coffee and liqueur. Delicious.

Saturday Evenings! Aren’t they always the best!

Furthermore, we did not do much in the weekend. We get up later and later on Sundays. Because yes, you have nowhere to go. (We don’t walk in the national park at the moment, as it is to busy.) But we want to change that. Don’t like it if a day passes so quickly because we got up so late. It would snow on Saturday, but that only happened in the evening and on Sunday it was actually almost gone. We did sit outside in the sun on Sunday. Well, sun … when we got outside the sun was shining, and when we sat for five minutes it went away. But we sat outside for an hour with a cup of tea.

Saturday evening is an evening to enjoy. Then we always watch,, Wie is de mole?,,. A game show on the Dutch channel. And then on to the Belgian channel to watch a detective. Next week,, Before we die,, starts with the second series. Just watching TV all evening without constantly looking at your phone. That’s relaxation for me right now. Yes, I also prefer to go out or play board games with friends, but that will not be possible in the coming months. Now we hope that we can go to England at least sometime in the autumn. But that could very well be November or something. For now, we have to be very careful again because of all those mutations. I hope you have a great week!

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

    We go out extremely early to do our morning walk to avoid the park being busy. Nancy. It certainly makes us both feel better for it. Have a good week xx

      Yes we planned to do that on Saturday morning but I think we forgot about it. We will do that next weekend!

    What pretty snowfall; I rather like dustings like that that don’t stick around. I feel the need to get outside and get some fresh air. I haven’t been lately because it’s been cold and I’ve been lazy but I know I always feel so much better when I force myself outside for a bit.

      I had that too. Always sitting inside is not good. But I will be this week, it will be raining all week!

    It does feel good to get back in the routine of working out again and doing all the things we get off track from during the holidays. Glad Gerben got your phone to last a bit longer. I have to recharge mine during the day depending on the apps I use, I try to never be far from a charger!

    These furballs are delightful. And love your looks Nancy. Those pants are divine!

    And I gotta say not the least bit jealous because of your fabulous teeth! Nope. Not at all. Haha.

    And it is really crazy that there are people every where you go. Parks are full. But suppose that is the way it is going to be like for a while. xo Sabina

      Yes it is. The only way to avoid people a bit is to cycle.

    I’m glad your phone got sorted. I can be very annoyed at things like that too. Technology has to work properly, don’t you agree? A lovely idea to sit out in the sun with a blanket and a cup of tea. A bit of sunshine and fresh air is good for both body and soul! Your food looks delicious! We will have to make “snert” some time soon! I really do hope we can visit England in the Autumn too. I miss it very much. Sometimes I cannot even watch English TV series without getting a tear in my eye! xxx

    I do think it’s good to get outside even if it’s not super warm. Mother nature can be so healing (and who thought I would ever say those words since I’m such an inside girl, LOL)

      Haha me too! Guess what! I even go out today to cycle with Denise. And it is stormy and dark and cold!

    I typically have to charge my phone twice a day. It is more than two years old and the battery doesn’t last much and my storage is almost gone on it. I am trying ot wait till summer to buy a new one: both my husband and my phone are paid for so that is some $25 savings a month. Sitting outside with a blanket sounds lovely. We have had sunny then cloudy days so we take advantage of it when it is pretty even if cold. I made some great progress with organizing this week. My entry closet was driving me crazy!

    To get up late at the weekend must be bliss. I wake up every day around 5.30 and can’t go back to sleep. But I like the couple of hours peace I get on my own!

      Oh no I don’t see it as a bliss. But 5.30 for the weekend is very early. However if you are rested then, it sounds good to me. I am a morning person.

    Thanks for sharing the photos of your cats. I had a Maine Coone growing up. Love those stressed out kitty arms/paws in the front. We have a calico and a rag doll, both are getting old and have a lot of medicals problems, sadly. But, we still enjoy them! I love seeing what you eat, def. different than what I’m used to… but, it looks yummy! I know, sometimes sitting outside and getting some fresh air and sunlight is so good for the soul.

      We doubted between a rag doll and Mainecoon. Rag dolls are also so cute and lovely! Don’t know what a calico is but I will look that up! Thanks Carrie!

    I am glad that Gerben was able to fix your phone! I get so aggravated when my phone does stuff like that. Right now the struggle is over phone chargers. My kids are always bending them all up that the cords separate and won’t attach to my phone properly. Right now we have 4 chargers in the house and only one will properly charge my phone! Damn kids and chargers. Haha. I really love your first outfit in this post. Those trousers look so great with the striped top and trainers!

      Haha, oh Gerben does that too! Or he takes it with him in the car!!

    Life is certainly going at a much slower speed for me also, I really need to differentiate the weekends from the week days though. Hope the dentist was a good experience, only one filling? that’s good.
    Your cats look very content.

    Thank you for linking with #PoCoLo sorry I’m late with commenting will catch up before the next post later this week.
