An Alarmingly Dull Day

Monday Nov 7th –



By Monday I thought my little bit of remaining head cold would be gone but instead it was back stronger 🙄

That was sad but a satisfying part of waking up was going to the kitchen and just pressing the button to start the coffee brewing because I prepared it all the night before 😁👌🏻

Reading, writing, drawing and blogging, perfect ways to ease into a dreary morning.

Though said morning was interrupted by sirens??
At first I thought the noise was coming from the movie I had on for background noise but then the noise continued and didn’t fit the ball room scene 😜
I turned it off and some eerie alarm noises sounded from all around.
I texted Mike to ask what was up and he told me that on the first Monday of every month the town tests the emergency alarms, would have been nice to know before maybe 😏

The fridge got a bit of a cleaning and supper was decided upon early in the day.
Oven backed, Alfredo-bacon gnocchi. I prepared it all early on so the dishes wouldn’t be crowding the kitchen once we wanted to sit down for dinner and from the smell of it, my hopes for it being a tasty meal were heightened.

Bla, bla, bla, the day passed by with little of interest to you humans and then Mike returned from the office and the meal was tested.

It had a nice flavour but a little too much of the same taste for an entire meal, next time I’d make it as more of a side dish or tone down the sauce somehow but it was alright as I’d still rather have too much taste then not enough 😉

I somehow fell asleep on the couch after supper and clean up was over, a little pre bedtime nap, getting me into the sleep zone 😜


Tuesday Nov 8th –



Mike fried up some bacon and eggs for us, since it’s important that we sometimes have what’s considered the most important meal of the day 😏

Fiji’s amount of effort and interest in our attempts to amuse him…

Afterwords Mike got to work and I did too, not on a computer but with a dust cloth and vacuum.
It was cleaning day once again 🚽🛋

Stuff got done and eventually a shopping list was compiled and we headed out to town.
Restocking the fridge and even ordering a spaghetti squash from the friendly vegetable store man 😁
Now I must admit, I’ve never actually cooked one, just eaten 🙈
Soo hopefully it ends up being worth the time taken to search it out 😜

I had supper plans but didn’t end up feeling like a big supper after our fairly heavy, reheated gnocchi lunch.
So instead some avocados were cut up and sprinkled with lemon juice and lemon pepper seasoning, cheese sliced and crackers and jelly brought out.
Random but it did the trick 😋

Mike went out for soccer and I went to the couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch some ‘Fixer Upper – Chip and Joanna Gains’ and become inspired to do a renovation that in all reality I would probably hate and wish was done the day I begun 😜

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 😊
