Saturday 19th –
Saturday morning came earlier for some than others… I got up and ready for the day ahead and then eventually I had to wake up Mike so we could head to Doesburg.
We checked out a few stores before heading over to Jilgerts for a visit.
Jilgert and Mike have been friends since they were kids and I think they were missing each other 😉
He made us coffees and we chatted away a bit of the afternoon.
Cars, jobs, houses.. The usual with them I believe. 😏
After we left there it was off to Sarah’s, she was having everyone over for her birthday.
Lots of family, noise and food…typical birthday 😜
So we spent the evening there and then drove back to our cottage.
Sunday 20th –
The man who usually translates the service for me was away so I did some reading during the preaching.
After service I gave Sarah a bag of sugar cookies for the girls because Mike doesn’t like them at all because “they are too soft, mushy… I only like crunchy cookies not soft things” and I don’t need to eat the whole batch myself 😜
Sarah in turn said she had something for me… Bread 😍
Back at the cottage we started getting food ready for Judith and Christian and the kids.
Burgers,curly fries and lemon cucumber was the meal of choice.
(The lemon cucumber I make pretty often is actually a dish Mike taught me.
Slice the cucumbers super thin and squeeze about one lemons juice onto them. Add a few tablespoons of sugar to desired sweetness and enjoy! It’s really tasty and super easy.)
After dinner we all went for a small walk by the river and then back to the cottage for coffee and hazelnut gelato.
The left around 7:30 as they had a two-hour drive back to get back to their place.
