Visit to hairdresser and cleaningwork done!

 Goodafternoon everybody!

Today is nice but not all too great weather, yet. Sometimes some clouds, temperature could be 21-22C, which is of course already nice, but next week we will reach very high temperatures, could be 28-30C. Well, it is summer and then you should have some warm temperatures also.

I just watered the garden(it is still very dry, almost no rain), did give it a good soak, so it should be enough for the next two days, may three. But when it will be very sunny and even warmer, we need to water all the containers almost daily. 

Last Tuesday I went to the hairdresser, and now I have real short hair, which is wonderful. So easy to maintain, and I am happy with it.

Then Jan and I also worked hard on a day, we did wash the net curtains of the front and Jan washed the windows inside and I did it on the outside. Gosh, it all looks fresh and shining again.

I also went into town one afternoon to see if I could find another pair of pillows for the new couch. I bought two in sale, but it would be ever so nice to have another pair of them for the second couch. And yes, I was lucky, I found them in sale and even in extra sale so they only did cost me 5 euro the two!!! Isn;t that a good buy? You will see them when I make a photo of the new couches, which will be here on the 2nd of September. Yes end of this month Jan and I will have to clear out our old display cabinet, and put the stuff somewhere aside. Gives me perhaps opportunity to see what we will keep and what can be thrown away. 

Good news from my friend Heidi too, she phoned me last Monday and she sounded a lot better already. The flue almost was gone, she only had still a bit a soar throat. I was real glad to hear it.

Now next week Jan and I will have a hospital appointment, told you already last week. Both are in the morning, which is a good thing, because on Thursday and Friday we will have the highest temperatures! So best to have it done before noon. 

To give you a bit of a good feeling at the end of this post I have a few photos of the garden for you. The first is of one of our tomato plants, and you can see we will have tomatoes! (To really see them well you have to see the larger picture.)

Here one of our Verbena's, they do so well this year.

This clematis already flowered once and to my pleasure it flowers now again China Rose, I fell in love with the flowerof this one. You often see them in red or orange, but this I like even better.

I think it is time to have a cup of tea, nice and quiet in the garden.

I wish you all a wonderful week, with possibly some smiles during the week. Stay safe!

So glad you had your hair done. It always make us feel so good. Nice to see that you and Jan have been busy. I can't wait to see the new photos of the couches with the new pillows. Your flowers are beautiful. How wonderful it must be to sit out on your patio. Enjoy your day my friend, big hugs, Edna B.
