Sentence a day: June

Documenting our month by a sentence a day.

Why goes time so fast in spring and summer? I want it to be June forever, but allas, it is gone already! Let’s look back.

06/01 Friday, that means cleaning, Gerben came home sick.

06/02 Working out, and in the afternoon I went to the birthday party of my sister in law and her daughter, Gerben stayed at home because he has a fever, it was very nice, with a bbq and nice wine!

06/03 What a boring day, I had planned to go out for dinner but Gerben is still very ill, I went outside to read in the garden.

06/04 The day starts with a workout, then it’s blogging time, Gerben is feeling a bit better, but is very tired.

06/05 Work out and blogging. Gerben is still sick but he is able to join me to a friends birtday party in the evening.

06/06 It is so warm here in the Netherlands, I love it, I am reading a lot in my garden and in the evening we are going to have a pedicure.

06/07 Started the day with a workout and then did some blogging and reading, we eat outside almost every evening!

06/08 My cleaning day, nothing more to add.

06/09 In the morning we went to the optician for a new test and advice for a frame, I need new oxygen glasses because mine are getting pretty fragile, it will be the same one because those sizes are good and I only can choose from one frame, then I read the hole afternoon in the sun.

06/10 We went to a city park on the bike where there was a market with local products, we enjoyed the atmosphere and the sun and then cycled home with a detour.

06/11 Working out and then the hole day mailing and blogging, I am getting a bit stressed because I ordered the glasses and paid for them but get nothing back, I remember from 3 years ago that it was a hassle to order them.

06/12 Worked out at the gym and then started blogging, updated a plugin, went wrong, I was so stressed that I tried to fix it myself, didn’t work, and hell broke loose, this needs two sentences. End of the story, I was dead tired at the end of the day because the person that host my blog didn’t want to help me, I was so angry that I immediately terminated my contract and phoned a local person who solved the problem for me right away, but I have to pay a fine for breach of contract!

06/13 Had a very bad night because of the stress, have to take it easy now otherwise I get sick, still can’t get in touch with Oxyview.

06/14 Start with a workout, got in touch with Oxyview and did a bit of blogging, cleaning and reading, in the evening I have a meeting and I have to speak a few words because our chairman is leaving.

06/15 Cleaning the house as every Friday.

06/16 Gerben is cleaning out the garage because it gets a new roof, I am reading in the garden and working out in the morning, Gerben made mussels Irish style!

06/17 Fathers day, so we went to Gerben’s father in the morning and mine in the afternoon, Gerben made aspargus! I love it when he cooks in the weekend!

06/18 An awfull day, there went something wrong with a plugin and my hosting company didn’t want to help, I was so angry, it was their fault actually, so I took my site away from them and now have a local man doing it.

06/19 A lot of stress because of the blog, I want things to be organised and they aren’t at the moment. In the evening we went cycling with friends and had some delicious ice and had a drink at their house, that was relaxing.

06/20 Did the groceries and sat in the garden reading and enjoyed the bees and butterflies.

06/21 Gerben has a few days off because the asbestos of sheds will be removed and Gerben needs to built a new roof on the garage and sheds are demolished, this is all on a piece of land that we bought and is at the end of our garden.

06/22 Cleaning, blogging, you know, it’s Friday!

06/23 Working out, then did some groceries and figured out the last stress things about the blog, now it is ready to migrate, got my new Oxyview glasses too!

06/24 Blogging, because Gerben is busy with the roof, the weather isn’t that nice and I have nothing else to do.

06/25 The sheds are being demolished, an exhausting day.

06/26 I started the day with a workout and then went to the optician to pick up my glasses, it is the same as I already had because there is only one model but my old one got a bit rickety.

06/27 Did the groceries, did some blogging and sat in our garden reading the new Karen Slaughter, oh what a bless.

06/28 Started with a work out, pretty heavy, I now push 90 kg. with my legs!

06/29 I have a appointment with my lung specialist nurse in the hospital, I went on the bike about 40 minute ride.

06/30 No workout today, I am not in the mood, tired and I have had enough of all the tention, next month it will be better!

I hope you all enjoyed my Sentence a day June.

      Thanks Vera, luckely it’s all solved. I am glad you liked the post!

    It’s surprising how stressful a blog can be – I had a problem a short while ago with only half of my pages being indexed! You feel so alone when you get that sort of issue.

    Hope your July is a little less stressful Nancy – with the asbestos, the glasses and Gerben being sick, it all sounds like June was quite tough!

      It actually was Gail! I talked about it just yesterday with Gerben that summer is over before we know it and that we also have to do social things. So now we have planned several dinner dates and Sunday we are going to a food truck festival!

    Good that Gerben was able to join you although he was unwell. Seems as if you work out a lot, which helps with the stress.

      I work out four times a week, I would love to work out more, but that is no good for my poor lungs.

    June was a busy month for you! I hope July is wonderful so far! Always enjoy your blog!

      Lekker gluren! Hahaha, doe een keer mee, is echt leuk!

    Loved the selfie of you on your bike. How maddening is it when supposedly simply things go wrong with the blog? It causes so much unnecessary stress. Enjoy your July.

      Yes, and it is so easy to solve…..but not by me! Haha

    How lucky that you didn’t get sick after Gerben did, Nancy. I always seem to catch whatever Rob gets!!
    And isn’t the blogging thing stressful at those times? You do something the same as everyday, and yet it causes issues….ugh!!
    I’m having issues with people being able to pin from my site, and my hosting company isn’t helpful either—they tried but haven’t been successful. But in the scheme of things, I have to laugh about it!!
    I’m so glad you’re joining us in this. You’re working out is inspiring me!!

      Yes, I was afraid I would be sick too because he had such a huge fever. I can get very very stressed when things don’t work on my blog, and ad the same time I have to think: is my life in danger, no! Relevate girl! Hahaha

    I’ve gotten back to working out this month. What things do you do? I’ve just been running but have been considering a Barre class.

      I do fitness, but I have a special programme because of my lung disease. Do what you enjoy doing!

    Enjoyed the photos and your summary.

    Having plugin and other blog related issues is the worst!! I am able to fix some things but other problems are beyond me and trying to find someone to help is hard. I can totally relate to your stress!!

    Love the bike riding pic and the one beside it with the olive pants. Those pants are so cute.

    Hope the demolition and roofing projects are tidied up now. Wishing you a July without any plugin problems!
