I’ve been enjoying a long weekend away with my family at our lake house. We arrived late Friday afternoon and even though all we’ve been doing is working in the garden, mowing in the lawn and cleaning the house it feels like it’s been a lazy weekend so far.
I absolutely love it here. It’s such a peaceful, little village right next to a lake with beautiful views of mountains. It’s one of my favorite places. Bali is the other. Waking up to views like this isn’t too bad!
On Saturday morning my younger brother Mo and I went on a road bike tour. It was my first bike excursion for the year so we did our usual 50km tour around the lake. We took it easy and finished in 1 hour 40 minutes. It was such a beautiful day and the roads were packed with cyclists.
I was pretty hungry when we got home and really wasn’t expecting lunch to be prepared since my parents were busy working on their garden project. However, in between work my mom whipped up an amazing pasta dish. The sauce base was tomatoes and included tuna and beans. It hit the spot! You will definitely see this on the blog again!!!

We worked outside in the garden for most of the afternoon and took Sunny for a walk in the evening.
Today we slept in and had a lazy breakfast. Mo and I took Sunny down to the lake for a morning “swim”. The water is still pretty cold (14°C) so there was no way I’d go swimming. Sunny however quite enjoyed the water even though she doesn’t really swim, but rather walk.
My grandparents came by for lunch and we went to my favorite restaurant. It’s right next to a golf course and the views are breathtaking!
The food was delicious as well. I had some of my dad’s starter (caprese) before enjoying a seafood salad. It was heavy on the seafood, just the way I like it. I chose profiterole for dessert and made everyone around me jealous.
In the late afternoon I took advantage of the weather and went for a short run. It was still really hot and I was running along a hilly hiking trail so I was exhausted when I got home.
After dinner I went for a walk with Sunny and my dad before uploading gazillion pictures I took during the last 2 days and writing this post.
And so another beautiful weekend comes to a close!
What have you all been up to? How’s the weather where you are?
