Fall “Spring Cleaning”

November 10th.
Mothers birthdate β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•πŸ°
Tuesday was the start of cottage cleaning.

Like spring cleaning .. In the fall.

It was a tidy little place but I may have a little Bonnie in me and decided it needed much moreπŸ˜‰ 

Began with the living room, the easiest.

Moved some old things to put away in our storage room and spread out some of the gifts we had received here. 

Started on the shower-room cleaning as well.. The house was added on to after it was built so there’s a separate room for a shower and sink and then the toilet is in another room. 
Between furniture moving, wall washing, spiderweb removing and decorating the day passed pretty rapidly. 
Aunty Yvonne stopped by late afternoon to ask if id like to join her on a small trip to town.

I got ready in record time and we went to town.

She showed me the doctors office and pharmacy.. And then took me to the best store to buy “good, cheap items.”

Then to Jumbo.. The groceries seem fairly cheap here but then again everything comes in very small amounts so it may not be that much cheaper in the end.

Hard to tell when I’m used to Costco amounts 😜

Back to the cottage to unpack groceries.
Mike got back a bit early from work without telling me so I didn’t have supper going.

With a fair bit of evening left we decided to head to IKEA and some other stores and eat something wherever we ended up. 
We stopped at a small ish store we had wedding gift-cards to use at, we found a small little oven to purchase!

Which was thrilling as I had no clue what I’d be cooking for months with just a stovetop😬
I’ve never been to IKEA when I actually have a house to fill but it’s a good thing we went unexpectedly and I had no list or ideas of what I should actually get so it was more of a look and remember kind of trip πŸ˜‹ 

 Supper was IKEA chicken balls for Mike and meatballs for me, fries for us both. 

Back to the house, lunch making and kitten visiting finished up our evening.

 I play with the kittens, Mike kind of just looks on with a slightly grossed out look on his face 😜

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊

  1. So much “winkling” going on! πŸ˜‚ Those are good traits to come by, you’ll see 😊 And even if they aren’t you will still see them😁
