Sentence a day: August

Documenting our months with a sentence a day!

08/01 It was Gerben’s first day at his new job, his car arrived in the afternoon so it was a short day.

08/02 Working out, blogging and into the garden reading, I am reading a lot of Scandinavian thrillers lately.

08/03 Cleaning  and nothing else really.

08/04 We went out for diner with friends in the evening, eating outside is the best!

08/05 My father in law’s birthday,82 , after the visit was gone we ate pizza with my parents in law and brother in law and his wife and kids, it was just a lovely day!

08/06 Working out, blogging and reading, it is still very hot over here and I am loving it.

08/07 Working out, and then had a meeting in the town hall of a volunteer group.

08/08 A busy day, first I had too prick blood, then the groceries and then to the tailor to put a new zipper in a skirt, spend the evening by myself as Gerben came home around midnight from work.

08/09 Working out, finally some people of my group came too as I worked out all summer by myself, that is a bit boring.

08/10 Cleaned the house, did some ironing and stuff and when Gerben got home he brought some Chinese food as he was very late.

08/11 Worked out, made a pie because we had friends over in the evening for dinner, I made a caramel banana pie with the perfect caramel, boil a can of condensed coffee milk in water for two hours, in the tin, and you get this!

08/12 We had a nice long breakfast and then we went to the national park, walked, and we have seen wild boar with young.

08/13 I had to go to the practice assistant for the blood results, my cholesterol is a little too high, no more chocolate and wine, and I canceled an appointment for the hospital (lungtransplantation), I am in no mood to go, I will go in the winter, worked out and blogged.

08/14 Worked out, blogged and did the groceries because tomorrow I go cycling with a friend, I always do my groceries on Wednesday.

08/15 Went cycling with Celina, who you have seen on the 11th, we took two ferries and of course there was also food involved.

08/16 Working out, blogging, a bit of cleaning and a bit of reading, Gerben got permission for our vacation!!!

08/17 A bit of cleaning

08/18 First I have a appointment with a designer who wants to work with me, then in the afternoon my brother in law and his wife will pick us up for a birthday party.

08/19 Gerben and I both worked out, he at the gym and I at home, then he had a lot of paperwork to do and I was so bored, in the afternoon I did not want to eat at home and we called friends and went out for dinner.

08/20 I have such a sore throat for weeks now, and I am pretty tired, still I started the day with a work out, blogging, have a lot of blogging to do in preparation for our holiday.

08/21 Worked out, then after lunch , Celina came by on the bike and we cycled to a dairy farm, a little further to buy food in the farm shop.

08/22 Did the groceries, did some blogging, read a bit and then I had an appointment in our village, I went on the bike and when I came there a note said that they had moved to the other side of the village, I came there too late and too sweaty from cycling.

08/23 Worked out, blogging and some cleaning as Gerben is spending a night in a hotel for work and I have to do everything by myself.

08/24 Cleaned the house, did way to much(again) and Gerben came home late, so we had a late dinner with to much wine!

08/25 Way to tired, went to my hairdresser and decided that I want my hair a bit shorter, in the evening we went to our friends house to play settlers of Kartan.

08/26 We both didn’t feel like working out, Gerben had things to do, and we went to the national park for a walk, in the evening Gerben cooked a very delicious meal.

08/27 Worked out, blogged, but I am very tired, I have to take things a bit slower otherwise I will get sick.

08/28 Worked out, and had a meeting at our town hall for my volunteer work, it was very interesting because we want to try to set something up that involves all citizens in our village.

08/29 Did the groceries and then had another meeting at the town hall.

08/30 Worked out, did some cleaning as I wont be doing that tomorrow and worked on the blog.

08/31 It’s my Birthday! I had some people in the afternoon and the rest in the evening, I was very spoiled with a lot of wine and gin(does that say anything about me?) and it was a fabulous day, I felt blessed with all the lovely people surrounding me!

That was my month! I hope you enjoyed reading it. If you have a similar post, then join our linkup!
