Clean House, Clean Canvas

Thursday Nov 3rd –


There was bits and pieces of cake top left so the extra icing was dished out and that was our breakfast, along with some delicious coffee ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฐ

Looks like we’ll be going back to the coffee store in Doesburg ๐Ÿ˜Ž

After the coffee and cake were finished Mike worked and I cleaned house, because it needed it but also because we wanted to make a video of it for all those who can’t pop over to see it.

Check out the video here โฌ‡๏ธ

 Jem Moment : Home Tour ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿข๐Ÿ“ฝ

As annoying and harmful as technology can be, I’m so thankful it’s available to me at times when I want to show my family bits of my life away from home ๐Ÿ’•

Once all that was taken care of I began making a dessert.


Just some out of the box brownie but I added some toasted pecans and planned on serving it with caramel sauce to add a little something extra to it.

I began supper preparations shortly after and sent Mike out to the store to get some things for me.
I required fresh basil for the bruschetta chicken I was trying to make and Mike couldn’t find any packaged soo, it looks like he’ll have a another plant to take care of ๐Ÿ˜‚

John came over to have supper with us, since Inge was off helping with/lovin up the new grandbaby.

The chicken was accompanied with fried potatoes, dill carrots and bread.

I was sick of having mayo with potatoes so I whipped up a sour cream sauce to go with them and it was actually kind of nice ๐Ÿ˜Š
Just sour cream, salt and pepper and some ‘Everything Bagel’ Epicure seasoning from mom๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I thought the chicken was kind of boring but the guys liked it.
I really wish I could taste a ‘new recipe’ made by someone else first and see if I’d like it then? ๐Ÿ˜‹

We visited awhile and enjoyed our coffees and brownie and then John went home and Mike went out to meet a friend to play some tennis.

I stayed at the house to clean up once again and then spent my evening drawing โœ๐Ÿป๏ธ




Friday Nov 4th –

Mike left for a business trip to Norway at 4:30 in the morning ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I luckily got to go back to bed ๐Ÿ˜

Thankfully my being ‘sick’ hadn’t been too sick besides a pounding headache through the night and mornings, nothing coffee and meds wouldn’t cure ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I told myself I should start trying to letter a little more as well as read the Bible so I’ve been trying to combine the two ๐Ÿ˜Š

With Mike being gone, the house cleaned and my head throbbing there wasn’t a ton to do but I felt inspired from the previous nights doodles.
So I began my first canvas painting in a while, how daunting the white, clean canvas always is at first.

It took some time but I was happily, and surprisingly, pleased with it ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽจ
Maybe It will inspire me to begin the gallery wall above the couch now ๐Ÿ˜

Blogging and photo editing began after that, mixed with the odd snack and a lot of couch sitting ๐Ÿ™ˆ

As usual, popcorn was the supper of chose with Mike not needing to be fed ๐Ÿ˜

Does the bad of the popcorn and butter get canceled out by the huge amounts of water I drink after because of too much salt and vinegar seasoning? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿฟ
