The invite

Simone and I went to Alkmaar for some shopping. Instead of buying clothes we ended up buying sorbets...

We kindly invited ourselves over for dinner at Ilse and Cassie;s. How rude of us! But it was a very nice evening :-)

Getting ready

I got some stuff ready to pick up on Sunday and bring it to my mom and dad's. Some things are too personal or too valuable to put in storage, like my model trains.

After work I went to hire some personal storage close to my work. I walked back home which was cool.

My house is a mess. Boxes everywhere. Not cool...

Boring is what my day must've been coz there are zero pictures to prove otherwise...

The walk home

I went to my Mustang straight after work to see how the new thermostat housing was holding. There were no leaks so that was good. When I started the car, it fired on the second attempt, very pleased with that as well. With the engine running there were still no leaks. I drove it outside and back in just to move stuff around a bit and to warm up the engine hoping the thermostat would open. I think it did but I'm not 100% sure. I'll have to take it for a proper spin when I have the opportunity again...

This view never bores me :-)

So when I was done I was thinking how to go home and I figured I could try to walk it. I had plenty of time and nice weather so I did it.

After leaving the outskirts of Zwanenburg I entered a very green area which was lovely to walk through.

After entering Amsterdam it soon became a whole different game...

I made this picture of when I crossed the A10 (ring Amsterdam) and straight after my phone ran out of juice. So that's it for today!

The coffee table

I bought this little table from IKEA and now I have a nice little coffee corner at work! I love it!

On my way home there were lots of bunnies next to the busstop again.

In the evening we walked again. The Twiske park is always beautiful.

The lock.

The mill.

Installing the new thermostat housing

Today I made some car-time. I really want to be able to drive again so this thermostat thing needs to get fixed pronto! But before I started on that, I put my new vacume cleaner together. I bought it a while ago. It doesn't just suck, it also blows, real hard! And it can also suck up water. Great! And it wasn't very expensive. So I cleaned out my car inside and then I blew around the engine bay and it looks cleaner now :-)

Well, there is the old thermostat. All blown clean now ;-)

I then installed the new thermostat and it's housing.

Hooked up the hose.... And then I had to leave coz dinner time was only 30 minutes away. I'll have to continue another time.

After dinner we went for a big walk. Lovely weather for walking.

The Twiske mill.
