Tuesday Nov 1st –
I woke up with the sore throat gifted to me from Mikes own slightly ill self 🙄
The sun was shining through our window and it looked like a lovely day was ahead, but not so long after the clouds and fog came in 😕🌥
Mike was working from home, meaning I become even less productive and the house stays constantly a tad messy 😏
We finished up the farmers sausage soup and it’ll be some time now until we have it again, farmers sausage from Saskatchewan isn’t so easily mailed😁
There was a plan in place to go for a walk together, but just the idea of that put me in bed for a nap 😜
Paper work was looked at once more since we had a chance to do it together, finishing up the last little details before the package would be fully ready to send off 😁📮
A cheese and cracker tray made up our dinner before Mike headed off to play soccer.
I then had the evening to myself to doodle and start watching ‘The Paradise’… if anyone has suggestions of a good, clean movie series, I’m all open to hearing them! 😊✍🏻
I also had to force down some honey lemon tea for the throat 😷
Don’t know how people drink that stuff for the enjoyment 🤔
Mike returned from playing soccer and before much could be said he asked if he could watch a soccer game that was on if he gave me a foot rub, who was I to deny him a soccer game?😏That’s usually the deal at our place… if I have to endure listening to lame soccer game, then I also get a foot rub (it’s a strategy I highly suggest to all you other soccer wives) 👌🏻⚽️😋
Wednesday Nov 2nd –
The big day finally came, the day the paperwork got officially finished up, sealed, addressed and sent off 🇨🇦📮
So let the unknown length of a waiting game begin!
Lunch was grabbed at a snack bar and an ice cream for me, since we aren’t totally sure when the snack bars will stop serving them due to the colder weather…
Doesburg has a little shop with coffee beans, coffee accessories, chocolates etc. and Mike explained our coffee predicament to the nice man who owned it 😬
He didn’t have any beans roasted dark enough out on the floor, but he brought down a barrel from storage, and it was perfect ❤️
The dark beans, shining with oily beauty looked up at us and an aroma wafted to us of pure perfection💕☕️
Next to find was some pomelos!
Two stores later and we had them in hand 😊
Still no luck at finding spaghetti squash anywhere though 😔
Back at the apartment Mike got to work pealing the pomelo and I began supper, a simple pre seasoned chicken with rice and the usual citrus cucumber salad, but I added in strawberries for a little change and it was a nice one 😊🍓
Fiji liked his new toy 🐭
Our evening was then spent on the couch, munching pomelo, chatting and watching a bit of a sermon online.
