The First Farewells And A Mother Daughter Monday

Sunday Aug 7th –

Church bells ringing… not literally but either way we were going πŸ˜‹

We also went to Dr. Javas.
Lunch for me (and mom) was my favourite panini from there, the aloha chicken πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Nap time beckoned me, so I went and as usual it turned into an all afternoon, going into evening event πŸ˜‹

Later that evening, Nathin, Becca and the kids came over for a visit and to say their goodbyes to me since they would be gone when I left.
Thankfully goodbyes pre-leaving day never seem as hard but it still isn’t a pleasant thing to need doing…



Monday Aug 8th –



The last town day to finish up this and that before I left home to head back to Holland on the upcoming Thursday.

One very important part of that day, a massage😍
Mom had booked one but no one else could take it/wanted it so it fell to me to endure πŸ˜‹

Twos hours later I walked out slightly less awake than before and a fair bit less energized, it was wonderful 😁

We headed to a new restaurant in town called ‘The Rusty Owl’ and sat down to try some lunch after a recommendation from Mel 😊

(Yes mom, I stole your sign picture from Instagram 😏 😘 @diamondandwillow )

The steampunk decor kept our eyes busy, looking from here to there and back again, trying to take in all the little, well thought out detailsπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

It would be a fun place to sit and enjoy a coffee and (large) macaroon while drawing or writing😊

We both ended up getting potato bacon soup with garlic toast for our meals.                          

Once we were through with our meals and ready to get back to the days tasks, a coffee and two macarons were required to boost our motivation levels.

The food was tasty, the service good, decor unique and well put together.
The prices are a little on the higher side of the scale but really, would you rather pay for a cheap, unhealthy, overly greasy meal and be unsatisfied elsewhere or pay a little more and eat a good, medium size portion but leave feeling full and like you ate something with some nutritional values left in it? 😊
The choice is yours.

All in all, I’d go back again…perhaps in December when Mike and I return 😁

Some much needed items which I can’t find back in Holland were purchased to pack up.
Salt and vinegar chips and Got To Be hair mousse are two such examples 😏

The unlovely task of unpacking everything purchased was taken care of once we got home and then we had a few moments to relax before supper.

Which was burgers (topped with grilled pineapple for mom and I) πŸ”

All in all it was a good day spent together and we did get things accomplished πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’•

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 😊
