I Will Not Be Taunted By A Box ðŸ“¦


Tuesday 31st –

Nothing was really done besides work on paintings and sitting in the sun 🎨🌤

We are kind of in a lull state in living , as we have to move out of the cottage come the second weekend in June.

Since the move is soonish, no real projects feel like they should be started but also no real packing can be accomplished.

We only get the moving van the DAY of the move so all of our furniture moved out and the remaining furniture put back in place after the cottage cleaning, has to happen during that weekend and not much can be done ahead of time 🙄

Thus my excuse for doing nothing all day 😉

I did check the mail though and upon doing so found much happiness awaiting me 😄

My birthday present from my family had arrived! 

As well as the wifi router 😜👌🏻

I contemplated whether or not I should open my birthday package early or wait until my actual birthday and I asked my family what they would prefer.
None of them gave a real precise answer, sooo the box kind of just… Fell open 😬 

I can’t NOT open things if I have them early 🙈
Also, I just see no point in it 😏
It’s for you, in your possession and you know who it’s from and when you actually have to open it.
So knowing all those details makes it seem rather silly to torture yourself by leaving it unopened, just taunting you.

I wasn’t disappointed 😉
It held many random yet terrific items such as a lei, a crown, tic tacs, sequin and diamond confetti, drink umbrellas, candles and more goodies to help me celebrate my birthday in style… or to disguise the fact that the REAL gift wasn’t ready for me yet so I got a picture of it instead 😏😋

I will eventually be receiving a Pandora bracelet 💕
Thank you awesome family! 😁

Supper was pork schnitzel, potatoes and garlic bread.  

Our drink was a smoothie, including spinach and thankfully the spinach wasn’t even noticeably tasted 😏 👌🏻

We had to take out the garbage and we said we would drive a ways away and then go for a walk in a new area.

Somehow the drive stayed a drive and the walk never happened 😜

We did climb this little lookout tower though.


Wednesday 1st –

I finished the Rolls Royce car painting and was pretty happy with the results. I haven’t painted a car in a long time but going back to it reminded me just how much I enjoy doing the car centred paintings 😁👌🏻🚘

Monster cookies were made but I was out of smarties so I froze most of the dough to add them in another time.

I also didn’t feel like having the temptation of a whole batch sitting on the counter because I have zero will power when it comes to monster cookies.

I’ve been trying my best to get some exercise included into my daily routine since I should try to be a little healthier/make up for the amount of food I eat, so that took up some of the day as well.

Leftover garlic bread and store fresh tortellini was served for supper.  

Fiji is a super chill cat sometimes 😏

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 😊
