Sentence a day: July

Documenting our month by a sentence a day.

So let’s recall how my past month was!

07/01 We were invited to spend the day with my sister and her partner in Giethoorn.

07/02 It is such great weather here in the Netherlands, I am trying to stop with what I am doing at 3 o clock in the afternoon to enjoy the sun and read a bit, after the work out and blog work of course.

07/03 Worked out and in the afternoon I had a meeting about protective living for my volunteer work, it’s about making life better for the ones who need guidance in life.

07/04 Groceries and reading and lying in the swimming pool!

07/05 Worked out, alone, there was no one else, they called me the die hard!, in the evening I had a talk with Gerben about not being very social and outgoing the past two months, we agreed to invite friends and family again and to go out on Sundays, we didn’t for the past months because of Gerben’s trouble at work and because he was very busy during the weekends.

07/06 Cleaning, cleaning,and cleaning.

07/07 Worked out, and made salads and read a while in the garden, in the evening my parents in law came over for a bbq!

07/08 We went to a food truck festival, it was so nice and delicious and just lovely, we enjoyed a relaxed day.

07/09 I start with a work out at the gym, normally it’s at home on Monday but because of the holiday at the fysio it’s on Monday now, blogging.

07/10 Work out at home and in the evening we invited my brother in law, his wife and their son for dinner at our favorite Asian restaurant, it was delicious!

07/11 The groceries and I had a meeting in the town hall where I had to take minutes, we got to know our new alderman, and……my Pinterest account was suspended!

07/12 Working out, blogging, mailing to Pinterest, being very pissed of!

07/13 Cleaning and trying to relevate because I want to enjoy summer!

07/14 I had an appointment at my hairdresser to update the outgrowth, then my brother in law came by and after he was gone I made salads etc. because friends are coming over for a bbq in the evening, we sat outside till midnight, what a great summer weather!

07/15 We went with friends to a estate fair on the bike, it was a hour biking witch I loved and it was very nice there, after that we cycled home, refreshed ourselves and went out for dinner with those friends, do you recognize the estate?


07/16 Working out, blogging, working at my new Pinterest account and reading in the garden.

07/17 A busy day, working out, in the afternoon to a meeting from my volunteer work, had to get some groceries and in the evening we went to a birthday party.

07/18 We went to Groningen to the hospital, I told about that on Instagram and got so many lovely comments.

07/19 It is such a crazy summer, we never had such high temperatures for so long, I love it, so again it’s working out do some blogging, and reading in the garden, Teun and Castor don’t like the hot weather at all.

07/20 I went with a girlfriend on the bike to Arnhem to the weekly market, it was so nice and afterwards we drank something at my place.

07/21 Worked out, and in the evening we went to our friends house for sangria and catching up.

07/22 Because Gerben was on call the hole week and he had a very busy week, he didn’t want to go out, so we stayed at home in our swimming pool and I made sate and cucumber salad for diner.

07/23 Working out, cleaning, because it is so hot I don’t want to clean everything in one day but do a bit each day, love these simple treats of strawberry’s and whipped cream.

07/24 Working out, blogging, cleaning, in the afternoon reading and hanging out in our swimming pool, I hope we get good news today about Gerben’s job!

07/25 Did the groceries and bought something delicious for with coffee after dinner as Gerben has his final day this Friday!

07/26 Working out, way to hot, to the beauty salon and back in the swimming pool again.

07/27 It’s finally Gerben’s last day at work, he has to hand in the car and then it’s over, he took Monday and Tuesday off and starts on Wednesday at his new job!

07/28 We had my father and his wife over for dinner, we had a very nice evening, relaxed.

07/29 We went to Heerlen to a hotel and walked for an hour and a half, I walked a lot too, and had a lovely dinner outside on the terrace.

07/30 After a lovely breakfast( I love breakfasts in a hotel) we went to GaiaZoo, we spend the hole day there and on our way back we went out for dinner,what a fantastic weekend we had, very relaxed, we forgot all about the past hectic months!

07/31 No working out today as I have a ton of things to do and we also want to cycle a bit in the afternoon, Gerben starts tomorrow at his new job so we want a relaxed evening.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my month! If you have a similar post, join our linkup party!

Note to my friend: Gerdi, reading back this post does make me understand why you always think FOOD when we meet! Lol.

See you next month!

    Seems as if you are always busy, Nancy…the best way to be. I think you had lots of fun too. Well, maybe cleaning is not really fun haha. Would love to see more of your garden…one of my favourite flowers.

    It’s so smart to try to stop working a little early in these fabulous months and enjoy the outside. I’m going to try that today!!
    Hopefully Gerben’s new job will make things better. Being at a job that you don’t like or aren’t appreciated is the worst.

    SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU JOINING US!! Yay! What a wonderful month it was, aside from the Pinterest business, which I am now experiencing. I have only been to a food truck circus once but really enjoyed it. There is one very near our home on Thursday evenings. Looking forward to cooler evenings in the fall so we can go and sit outside and enjoy our meal. Too hot to do so now.

    Your photos are lovely, too!!

      Thank you very much Leslie! I would go every week if there was one near our home! Haha, it’s so very nice, not only the food, but the hole sphere. I hope your problems with P are solved!
