The back of my garage.

I did a few little things in my garage, nothing major. I'm thinking of putting a big car lift in the back so that I have the option of storing (and working on) a second car. That would mean that the floor above can only go as low as 5 wall pieces (375 cm). That would not leave room for a second floor in the back though...

I made a selfie with Silver, he didn't notice ;-)

The Corvette sales brochure

Am I having deja vu?

I bought an original 1973 Corvette sales brochure because I might buy one some day. It's nice to orientate a little now :-)

The main specs are listed inside.

More repairs...

I tried "Huttenkase", some kind of cottage cheese for the first time, it had nice herbs in it. Very nice! My diet ain't so bad now eh?

When I left the house little boy Silver was seeing me out.

I had to bring my car in for repairs again. It's just a few cosmetic things because some douche reversed into me at the lights. I'll have it back on Friday.

In the evening Simone and I went for a walk again. It was warm but cloudy.

Simone made this photo of me with Silver. Silver is the best :-)

Going to my garage! :-)

After dinner I went to my garage. There was a door missing.

But not anymore :-)

For reference I made some photos of the electronics board.

The main switch.

Also a reference picture of my tire's pressure descriptions.

The bike ride

Simone and I went for a bike ride this evening. The weather was really nice.

The ride mainly went through fields, some with cows :-)

The sun had 2 sun dogs or parhelia.

Us :-)

We had a chat with a group of cows.

The half-way point of our trip was a little town called Ilpendam.


The ride was lovely and I think we'll do it again.

The crack, or not?

I went to my garage early this morning to get more stuff done. But I was so early the DIY store was still closed. Since the weather was great I took the car out for a little spin :-)

I did notice something that worries me. There's something that looks like a crack in front of the driver's side cylinder head...

I'm not sure if it's a crack of some leftover from the casting process...

I put up another shelve under the sink and did some other little things. Even cleaning up and organising is fun. The little garage-area at the front is nearly done now.

Me happy!

Simone finished work early and we went to have dinner at the beach again. I ate healthier food than usual but still a few things my diet doesn't allow like bread, pesto and cheese. It was delicious though.
Oh, and I had 1 little cookie with my coffee... oops.

The plumbing

Today I'm starting phase 3 of my diet which means I can now have a normal breakfast again consisting of crackers with low fat toppings, low fat yoghurt and some fruit. It's awesome! And losing weight is going very well, 12 kilos less now :-)

I drove to my garage to fix the plumbing on my little sink. It went well except for me having to go back to the DIY store 3 times because I kept forgetting stuff...

In the afternoon we walked Milan's folders. He's not here right now so Simone and I had to do the work.

In the evening I was very tired and my back hurt. Silver kept me company for a while. He has grown so much...

Enjoying the moment...

Something that doesn't happen very often anymore now that Silver has fully grown up...

Happy 45th anniversary mom and dad!

My sister Ilse drove past my work again today. This time she told me in advance so I was actually on time with my camera (= iPhone).

Simone sent me pictures of Silver again, this time he was allowed to get a few cat-candy's. I thought this photo was very funny :-)

Today it's my mom and dad's 45th wedding anniversary. Such a long time! We went over for coffee in the evening, Ilse was there as well, it was a nice visit.
I forgot to take any photos so here's a very nice older one from 1 or 2 years ago.

The yawn

Simone sent me photos of little boy Silver who was very cute.... at first.

And then she also sent this one 8-|

The grouting

Enjoying my calendar at work. There's a pretty picture for August now :-)

I went to my garage and grouted the little tiled wall. It went quite well, especially for a first time :-)

The accident

There was a bit of an accident in the harbour today. The hospital helicopter flew over our building which drew my attention. Something bad went down inside the ship's belly while unloading cargo...

The beach lunch

Today we wanted to do something nice so we drove to Bergen aan Zee for a lunch at the beach.

The weather was great and so was our lunch.

Back home we had to walk the folders. I saw this mother duck with 8 ducklings in their puberty ;-)

The tiles

I spent most of the day at my garage. It felt like being on vacation because it's so peaceful and quiet (except for the airplanes). I made sure I ate every two hours.

The breaks were nice.

I did a bit of tiling which was my first time ever but went very well.

Phase 1, which is making the space usable as a garage, is going well!
