And another week passed. Geez, we’re almost in August already. What a depressing thought. Let’s talk about the weather. I really hate winter. The cold, the short days, the much more time spending inside. And we’ve actually had such a bad summer, let alone a bad and cold spring. And although the temperature has been nice and warm for a few weeks now, it is often cloudy and it rains regularly. Very nice for the garden because everything blooms enormously, the weeds also grow vigorously. But I wish summer would last for many more months.
Enjoying the weather by cycling
Do you have any plans for the holiday? Abroad or not? That is still the question here. May or may not. Corona still keeps us in its grip, even though we are vaccinated. We do often meet up with friends and family now, still keeping distance of course. We feel good about that, meeting up that is. But to go somewhere where there are a lot of people, it just doesn’t feel right. I think at some point you have to let go of that, what do you think? Or is it just not an issue for you anymore?
Last week, in addition to the usual things, I enjoyed cycling with Denise. And of course we had lunch, that’s part of it. The water in the rivers is very high and the floodplains were flooded. So we cycled over the dikes, because that is a beautiful sight. (Of course the flood was horrible in Germany and Belgium. That’s a totall different story) But you couldn’t go on many bicycle paths because of the high water. Furthermore, there was not much special last week, just enjoying the weather by reading outside.
Lots of good food at the weekend
Saturday we went out for dinner with friends, which was very nice to do again. It’s been a year since we have been out for dinner with them. On Sunday Gerben made pork belly on the barbeque and a friend came over to eat with us. We had barely finished eating when it started to thunder and rain. Quickly cleared everything and settled on the lounge set where you can sit very well when it rains! Just enjoyed the rest of te evening and we even saw the owl!
Have a great week all!
