This Blog Post was originally published on the platform "writelier" (formerly "co-writers" and "200wordsaday"). Sadly the blogging platform was discontinued. I downloaded all my blog posts and prepared them to be republish them here.

My vacation is coming to an end. So at the start of the week one of my neighbours asked if I would be interested in a barbeque. We had several in the past and I quickly agreed.

Since my neighbours are already retired, it wasn't hard to find a time where we could come together. Said and done, we set the appointment for today.

After some severe problems to get the charcoal burning, Fred (one of the neighbours) and I got it working. By one o'clock in the afternoon, we were eating.

The sun was burning down again, but luckily there is a place on "our property" (the ground owned by the house where our Apartments are inside) that is pretty good covered by trees and bushed.

Obviously you can't have a barbeque without a few bottles of beer and after eating we switched to wine. Frida (the wife of Fred) brought some ice cream with sour cherry and liquor.

At half-past six, we started to tidy up the place again. I spend the rest of the afternoon and evening on the balcony and read a few pages.

After a short cold shower, I'm no sitting here to write the "famous" 200 words.

What an awesome day!
