Monday October 11th –
Unpacking, laundry and writing filled my Monday.
I don’t remember what I ate or anything in between so this will be a very short daily post😜
Lisanne and Amy were over so I sat and drew with them for a few minutes, communicating as much as fake sign language let us 😏
Supper was a classic Dutch meal (prepared by Inge) that I had yet to eat while being in Holland, ‘boerenkool met worst’.
Tuesday Oct 12th –
Tuesday was a tad more eventful in writing terms then the previous day 😏
Mike and I were hardly awake when a timid knock sounded at the door and Amy joined us, saying it was time for us to wake up 😋
Inge had an appointment to leave for, so we got to take care of the girls for a while.
First things first we headed to the grocery store so we could get some cookie ingredients 🍪
Cookies were mixed up, spooned out and cleaned up with ‘help’ from the girls 😉👭
Uncle Mike carefully watched over the whole process, seeming just as intrigued as the girls were but I think he was just waiting for some dough/baked results 😏
While the cookies baked Amy and Lisanne wanted to have something else to do so us four gathered around the table, papers and pencils in hand.
A pastime of which has no name, began.
Everyone takes a turn drawing a random line, then you all have to figure out what it could create and finish the drawing together.
Cookies joined us and so did Inge.
Meaning Mike and I left for town and began the search for house items 😁
Main item we lack, a couch.
And it seems like those are very abundant but very hard to find exactly what you want 🛋🙄
We didn’t find a couch but a light bulb, a small clock and some other small insignificant items did make their way back to the car with us 😁
Unfortunately I had no legitimate reason for needing anything from this collection, which I ADORE!! 💕
Also looked at were paint colors 😳🎨
Because that’s not a hard decision at all 😬
But luckily, I had my color blind husband to help pick! 🙄
No really, he is a bit color blind, I wasn’t just saying he’s a silly male with no taste 😜
The day finally came to an end and I requested an ice cream as ‘no couch consolation’ 🍦
Mike went to soccer, I went to bed with popcorn and a movie 🍿💻
Not the best tradition to have for when your hubby goes to be healthy, you stay home and eat? 🤔
I’ll have to come up with a new, but still tasty alternative 😜
