Yes, it is already evening. I just finished washng up from our dinner and thought now was a good time to do my blogpost.
Weather today was fine, around 20-21C, with some sun. Last two days we had some rain during the night, happy about that. Next week temperatures will rise again till around Wednesday, then later it will drop a few degress. All by all it will be lovely weather.
Today I was, in slow pace, busy with several things, so I found no time to do the post earlier. Yesterday I've made a big pan of tomatoesoup, well filled with lots of vegetables, and tiny tomatoes, and small meatballs, so that was our supper for the weekend. Then I found out that I still had a roll of ready to use puff pastry. I had it planned for a savoury plate dish, but never came to it, so now it had to be used. Well, I tried my hand on some backing, which I rarely do. I made an apfelstrudel, a bit my way, I suppose and that is now waiting to be served with our evening coffee. I have no idea if it will be any good, but hey what disaster can you produce with ready puff pastry and some apple, raisins, and sugar?
I;ve made a photo of the result, now just hoping it will taste well.
Rest of today I was busy with the laundry and some gardening and i between it all taking it easy and slow, LOL.
It was a rather quiet week, as many of them are, thank God, and still the days go by so fast and looking back I don;t know with what it was filled, but I have the idea I did a lot, only cannot remember it all hahaha.
Had to make a call to the bank to ask something for Jan, had a very nice person on the phone that helped me very well. There is nothing better than a person to person call, so much easier to explain things than on a computer chatprogramm, at least that is my opinion.
Soon we will have wellfilled evenings concerning tv watching, (we always have lots to watch and always are short in time to watch it all)but in about two weeks time there wil start the European Championship Women soccer and you know Jan and I love to watch that. Our tean stands a good chance, but there are a few more very serious candidates for the title. Let's just hope our team performs well and comes into the finals.
Oh, last Thursday afternoon Jan had to undergo an endoscopy, which is nothing bad, but takes time. As Jan gets into panic when they enter his throat he always has a light anesthesia, but then the whole procedure takes a bit longer. So after the endoscopy, which takes not long, he has to get awake again on a ward, and that takes about an hour. They always keep the patients for about an hour in the bed, give them something to drink and perhaps, if they want a little sandwich(e.g. Jan wasnt allowed to eat during the whole day). But then to get him home is still quite a challenge, He still was a bit under the weather, so when we finally ot home, he was glad to lie down on the couch and was asleep within a second and slept almost the whole evening and night, only woke up two times for 10 minutes or so.
I did say to him that I better liked to take a taxi home, but he refused that and wanted to go by tram. And there is no arguing with him about it. So stubborn and hard headed at times, hopeless. We managed to get home, but if there is a next time, I will have to plan it otherwise, because I didn;t feel very happy during our travel. The tram was okay, but we also have to walk aa bit from the station to our home. Pffff, why are man so difficult to handle at times????
But okay, all went well, he had a good sleep, next day he took it easy, and I did also, and on Friday evening we were up to date again. Now just waiting the result of the biopsy they took(they almost do that every time). Every time all was well, it is more of a repeat control every no and then.
Our garden is a real pleasure now, with all the blooming snd the good weather at the moment. I am now waiting for my tomatoeplants to blossom. we have sown them a bit late and then perhaps moved them outside just a bit too soon. Now they seem to do well, they grow like mad, but still is the question if they will give us some tomatoes. There is still a little bit of time, so we'll just have to wait patiently.
Soon there will be the evening news on tv, so this is a good time to finish the post. I wish you all a splendid week, stay safe and healthy.
