Busy, busy, busy. Came home late so had a very fast dinner because I have to go to my beauty salon in half an hour. I also have to vote tonight.
Today is election day in the Netherlands for a new government. I think voting is a right and you should use that right but to be honest I still haven’t got a clue which party I’m going to vote for. I don’t trust anyone of them. They all make promises during the campaign period but never keep them.
Unlike in the US where you have the democrats and republicains we have lots of parties which we can chose from. So every 4 years we have a government that consists of at least 2 parties and that can be different every year. Usually the biggest party governs the country and provides our president but they’re never big enough to govern alone so they always need a second or even third party. All the other parties are the opposition. Usually I know what to vote for but not today. Oh well I’ve got 2 more hours to decide ….
Our company is a franchise organization and every year one of our franchisees brings a box of white asparagus for our management and I get one too. The traditional way to eat them here in Holland is with eggs, ham and hollandaise sauce (made of butter) with a white wine. The package had that all in it. I “learned” to eat them only last year but now I love them. White asparagus are pretty expensive here in Holland so I don’t buy them often myself. But Friday or Sunday it’s asparagus for dinner.
Yesterday I went to the gym after work to do my interval training on the treadmill. I brought my running shoes after cleaning them a bit. It went very well.
Schedule: 100, 200, 300, 600, 300, 200, 100 metres with 3 minutes break in between. I slowed down twice to fast walking so I could catch my breath and drink some water but I did all intervals so satisfying workout. Today is a day of rest.
Distance: 4.00 K / 2.5 miles
Average time: 6:48 /km
Average speed: 8.8 km/hour
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday noodles with chicken and vegetables.
Today a quickie: 2 slices of bread with a baked egg and cheese.
Quote of the day:
Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where they is no river.
