My First Lost Hour 🕰

Saturday 26th –
Mike suppressed his need to ‘do stuff’ allllll Saturday.

It didn’t go unnoticed and it was appreciated 😉

Mike made us sugar bread french toast for brunch ☺️ 


More Jemstory mugs were gotten ready to be ordered!
Mike is the one who found the website and the discount so his opinion on sayings and fonts was asked as well, but due to technical difficulties the order couldn’t be placed… yet ☺️☕️

Mike wanted to shave off his beard again but I guess the whole, me avoiding looking at him for a day last time was a deterrent so he just trimmed it very short.
Which I found perfectly acceptable 😜

Supper was prepared fairly early and we were again happily surprised at the taste and moisture of the pre-seasoned chicken. 

It’ll have to be restocked in our rapidly emptying freezer 😁

I suggested to Mike that since he wanted to paint maybe we should do something mom told me about.
One person paints something how they want and then the other person finishes it and a one of a kind (two of a kind?) piece of art is created and a fun process too.
So I started one and I worked on it… and worked on it 😏 

(Excuse the messy work space 😁🎨) 
Mike then said he was afraid to touch it since I didn’t seem to be stopping and I told him that was probably a good idea 😉

I officially ran out of white paint first.
Does that mean I make a lot of mistakes ooooor I am a really boring painter?
I’m not sure 😁 


That evening dragged out but it was too early for bed but too late to start any kind of craft, project etc.
So what else is there to do but watch a movie and eat popcorn? 😊🍿🖥
(Not much in case you thought that was a real question)
Though the weird dude I married doesn’t actually like popcorn so he opted for chocolate.


Sunday 27th –


Easter Sunday ☺️💕🌷🌦  

We’ve been using the leftover cream cheese icing from the carrot cake muffins for French toast topping 👌🏻
Mike was my translator again that service.
He and the other translator (Bro. Henk) will try to take turns translating week on, week off.

After the service, Mike asked some kids to come hang out at the cottage for the afternoon and then invited their parents to come later in the day for coffee and to pick them up.
Nathan is the kid who found and gave us Fiji, so he wanted to see what the fluff of kitten had grown into.
The boys went for a walk by the river while I straightened up the house.
Once they were back we wanted ‘barbershop’ but since it was easter Sunday the restaurant was closed and everything in the freezer needed thawing and preparing except for the frozen pizzas.
So, cookies and frozen pizzas were the answer.  

Those cooked while we started a game of ‘Ticket To Ride Europe’.

Their parents came over and I asked Mike to make the coffee… perhaps I should do it next time 😏
He forgot to put water in coffee maker and he also made the coffee very strong.
When I asked him how many beans he had ground he blankly stared before answering that he had no idea, he had been talking when he did it and he was distracted.
He can’t multitask but the effort was appreciated 😜
We visited awhile and Mike had fun showing them his food coloring knowledge via dying our Milk 😏🍵

The morning had been grey and rainy but by late afternoon the sun was brightly shining and it isn’t hard to enjoy the longer hours of daylight since spring time is in full force 🌤

Speaking of hours though… I officially experienced my first time change and the feeling of an hour being snatched away from you.🕰
I didn’t like it 🙄

My parents were able to FaceTime so we had a chat with them before Mike left the cottage in search of food 😜

He didn’t find any so I had instant soup, he had chips.
Later, I found a pack of instant rice pudding that Inge had given me so I cooked that up and we ate that with brown sugar and cinnamon. 
It had the odd texture of most dehydrated packaged food items that are ready to be eaten in less than 10 min. but I liked It 😁😋

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 😊
