Titles Are Hard… So Is Exercising

Wednesday 11th –


Once coffee had been poured I warmed up a stroopwafel, sat down at the computer and tried to post the previous day’s writings… usually requiring another stroopwafel 😏

The sunny day meant I moved outside.   

Writing out past days events as well as doodling with some penmanship ☺️✍🏻  


Hubster came home with flowers and a sweet note.  


Helping in my forgiving him for going out to eat with his friend for one of my favourite meals while I stayed to make my own meal at the cottage 😏 

He went out to eat and I went out for a jog.
The 3km felt much longer then 18 minutes and the people swimming in the river near the cottage made it seem awfully tempting 😜

I fried chicken and toasted some garlic bread… and ate it all.
It was originally meant for two people 😏😜

That is my struggle with exercising.
I do something that is supposed to make me lose weight, gain muscle, get stronger, be healthier, blah blah… but once I move more than usual I become a ravenous monster that only thinks about food for the rest of the day πŸ™„πŸ˜¬πŸ΄πŸ΄



Thursday 12th –


With the warmer weather our room has been staying to hot to sleep in comfortably… I prefer arctic conditions for bedtime.

Warm temperatures plus aching legs (blasted runπŸ™„) and wisdom tooth trying to come in meant for a not so great night.

I was still tossing and turning when Mike left for his flight to Switzerland at 4:00 am.
I stayed up until 6:30, chatting with some folks at home since times were right and then finally fell asleep until 10 πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

I seen a funky little shiny path like mark on our patios cobblestone so I sent Mike a picture. 

His quick and casual reply was, ‘Oh, it’s from a naked snake’.
So ya, that’s something they have here.😳

It was another beautiful day at the cottage with +25 weather but Mikes weather in Switzerland not so much, unfortunately for him as he was walking away the rest of his day once business was finished.

Fiji has been very non energetic with the heat so he goes inside to sleep and I go outside to get sun 😜  


I waited until evening to bake some banana chocolate chip muffins.                                              Hoping they were good enough to be worth the heated up house…
They were 😁

Mike got home and it was his awaiting job to remove Fiji’s ticks 😬
They are very abundant here it seems.
Anyone know of a good tick repellent to put on cats??
One lady we asked at a pet store told us cats handle them well so we don’t need to bother doing anything… even if that may be but it’s ME who can’t handle seeing/feeling them on him πŸ™„πŸ˜œ

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. Naked snake? Is that cause he leaves his shiny skin all along the way leaving him undressed?πŸ™ˆ
    Don’t they have tick collars? Find an essential oil or he wouldn’t be coming near me 😳
