Years Of Curiosity Curbed In One Moment

Monday 4th –

A lazy day for all at the house.
Sleeping in, drinking good coffee once again, relaxing and not having to look presentable πŸ˜‹

Us girls went outside to get some jogging/strength stuff done with and Mike entertained the girls on the swing set.
They were excited to have a guy around for a change and Uncle Mike is pretty patient with their requests 😏

Lunch was a small buffet of fruits, dips, crackers, cheeses and salsa.

After some point we went outside to check our big lawns strawberry patch πŸ˜πŸ“

The crop has been rather impressive this year😏

Us kids had planned on making an above par meal for a late anniversary celebration supper for mom and dad and that was the night to do it.

We had purchased T-bones and sparkling cider at Costco and Nathin got fresh Alaskan crab from town to soak in butter (and lemon juice for me).
Greek salad, mushrooms and garlic toast accompanied those two mains and it was a delicious meal indeed 😍🍽

Coffee and barbecued peaches with honey and pecans were the finishing touchπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Dinners are loud and full of love with everyone being able to be together.πŸ’•

(Always missing Joshua thoughπŸ˜”)

Once everything had had ample time to settle, Nathin and Mike headed out for some badminton 🏸


Tuesday 5th –



Into town for pre cabin errands we went.

Dad and Mike headed to get cedar boards for Shauna (the shower house/sauna) and they dropped off Pro, Al and I at Walmart, saying they’d pick us up in half an hour.

We finished at the bank and Walmart, slightly hurrying so the guys wouldn’t be waiting for us.
We ended up waiting for them in the hot afternoon weather for 40 minutes πŸ˜‘β˜€οΈ
Luckily I bought some cookies and cream Hershey bites to keep our spirits up.
I’d actually been curious about how they tasted for literally years… It was time to let my curiosity be answered 😜

They were good😏

All of us were experiencing hunger pains so Asian Lee was happily chosen, by Pro and I 😁

Mom joined us there and we had a tasty lunch, oh how I miss that type of meal when I’m in Holland πŸ˜”

We went to the library to try to get a few movies and books together for cabin entertainment and Brynlee found a stool that was her size.

She loves small chairs and furniture πŸ˜‹

Mike was neeeeeding his turtle cheesecake from Dr. Java’s and they had iced coffees on for 1.75$ so we tested two of those out.

After a few other errands we eventually made it back to the house.

Becca, Nathin and Spencer came over for a little bit and Spencer was dressed in the first ever gift given to Becca for him, from Mike and I.

From premie to plump in 9 monthsπŸ˜œπŸ’•

As I was drying dishes I came across an odd looking contraption and asked mom what it was for.
Her reply was that she had got it in a box at an auction and it was for pitting cherries but it didn’t work.
I suggested I throw it away for her, she suggested I not 😜

The deal was made I would test its ability on two cherries and then I could throw it out honestly, whatever it takes mom πŸ˜†

The sky was boasting some pretty interesting clouds so a few of us ventured out to take some pictures and then play some badmintonπŸ“·πŸŒ₯🏸

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. Thanks for the meal! It tasted even better around a full table of children and grandchildren. Sorry again Josh 😏
