Monday 4th –
Mike woke up feeling sick and called in to work to say if he was doing any today it would be from home.
So that meant we would both have a ‘ sick day ‘ since as stated before, when Mikes home I don’t know what to do with myself… accept clean up the messes he leaves everywhere. 😏
Upon leaving the room that morning I was greeted by my first sight of snow this winter.❄️
Wet, melting snow that Mike later forced Fiji and I to go for a walk in with him.
It was chilly and uneventful though Fiji did seem to enjoy it.
We ended up napping ( after such a vigorous walk and all 😉 )
After the nap, Mike went to the grocery store while I started on supper.
Steak, mushroom wine sauce and fried potatoes.
( I was happy with the potatoes turn out as I’d been wanting to make them crunchy and golden on the outside and soft inside… maybe that’s easy as can be for you professional potato fryers but it felt accomplishing to me 😜 )
That evening Mike decided it was time for me to practice some Dutch so the childhood book ‘Peter Pan’ was visited ( in Dutch ) and a side note is they call ‘Tinkerbell’… ‘Tinklebell’… Sounds like a fairy who can’t stop peeing.
I feel like Dutch kids got ripped off on the name bit of childhood stories.
In turn I decided that it was also time to introduce my unlearned husband to ‘Anne of Green Gables’ the movie.
We didn’t finish the first one but it will be revisited 😏
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 😊
