The Buying Bug Has Bitten

Tuesday Sept 27th –

After Inge and I enjoyed the breakfast prepared for us by Mike, it was mostly get ready for town and head out.

Mike and I had returns to do and an apartment paper to sign but it turned into a longer outing then expected due in part to walking down a street we don’t normally take and spotting new shops to peak in 😁

With having the apartment almost in our grasp, the decor buying bug, has bitten πŸ™ˆ  (Though if I’m honest we must be infected by said bug because when do we ever really not shop?)

We found a sale corner and left two vases, a gold serving tray and one sheep throw heavierπŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

(Mike thinks the sheep throw being ‘real sheep’ makes it quality… I just think it makes it sadπŸ‘)

I found a belt for 2€ πŸ‘πŸ» And thanked my savvy self for not buying the 15€ one I had seen a while back πŸ˜πŸ˜‹

Pretty wrapping paper is always a must and ‘Hema’ is a store I find irresistible.
Having so many brightly colored accessory items that you don’t really neeeeed but at cheap enough prices to make you deeply consider everything πŸ™ˆ

A cheese truck was stopped at to see if they had any kind of jalapeño cheese but they did not, so a tomato and olive cheese was purchased instead😏
Yes yes, no will power is what you’re thinking, but yoooou try leaving a cheese truck empty handed πŸ§€

And when one buys cheese one must eat it, so back at the house we had a little cheese and cracker tray.

We heard the unfortunate news that Oma and Opa’s sister-in-law had passed away that morning, so in order to introduce the Canadian way to them, Mike suggested we take them the remaining soup.
It isn’t a thing people do here, take food to the family of those who’s loved ones have passed away or if a family had a baby.
It is unheard of and a little weird to them and most wouldn’t even have room for food because they have no freezer besides the small one included in their fridge 😜

Oma had some dessert for us to try that she had made with the pastry Mike and I had got her in Switzerland, so we got to see the result of our searching πŸ˜‰

The next batch of  ‘ We Nomads ‘sweaters had been picked up so it was time to get a picture of the finished product, unfortunately for meπŸ˜‹

Fortunately for me it was soccer night for Mike though and that usually means I eat some salt and vinegar chips because he hates the smell and also because then he isn’t sad that I have a snack and he doesn’t 😜





Wednesday Sept 28th –



Make the coffee, write the things, etc. etc.

I was planning on making a dessert but too many ingredients were missing and I didn’t feel like walking to the store to buy that much, so that’s a plan for another day.

Instead I went out and began sanding off my desk 😊

We had picked up sandpaper and spray paint the day before so I was hoping to have it done or almost done, before we leave for Greece 😁

**Little Mini Jem Moment: Two weeks until we move to the apartment πŸ’πŸ’‘**

Mike stopped to get some green beans on his way back from work so I could finish putting together the supper of chicken, bread and wild rice.

I think it’s safe to say Mike and I left the table much fuller then my last supper attempt πŸ˜‹

Bible study was attended and Sarah loaded me up with poppy seed bread again… now I’m really sure she has some ulterior motive 😏
