Wednesday Nov 9th –
I could hardly talk due to throat issues and the first sweet words I uttered to Mike were that I needed a Kleenex.
Second words were for him to look at how Fiji was chilling by the balcony 😜
We sat down to drink our coffees and chill for a moment while waiting for the guys to come over.
Guys being Mikes cousin and a friend visiting from the states.
They arrived shortly after 10:00 am and after about an hour of catching up and exploring the apartment, (cause seeing the whole place totally takes that long😏) they headed off to discover Amsterdam.
I stayed at the apartment and worked on the scripture verse drawing of the day, the blog and making a French toast casserole for the next day’s breakfast.
It was a pretty boring day 😏
Thursday Nov 10th –
My speech mechanisms – still slightly on the fritz…
The boys had gotten back near 1:00 am and it’s a good thing they weren’t burglars cause I heard nothing 😏
I’d prepared coffee the night before so I could start the pot brewing before the boys woke up since I didn’t know how late they’d sleep in, not thinking of the fact that the big pot shouldn’t be made and wasted until they woke up🙄
Did I bang a cupboard door or two and walk not so softly in hopes of them rising sooner so I could have coffee?? 🤔
No, I didn’t… but I can’t say it didn’t cross my mind 😋
They awoke soon after me though, so it was okay 😏☕️
After one cup of coffee was down they were sent out to search for syrup.
Something I’d forgotten we would require for the French toast casserole 😬
While they were out, Mike picked up our spaghetti squash!
Breakfast was eaten together and made all the better for the little, 6 euro bottle of ‘biological maple syrup’ 😋
Not a whole lot transpired after that but after a consolation with my sister, the spaghetti squash preparation began and I hoped I hadn’t built it up in my head and was in for a huge disappointment 😳
Baked with olive oil and seasonings and then mixed with some cheese, garlic and fresh basil after it was hallowed out, made for a lovely taste.
It was served with a pre-seasoned pork tenderloin and garlic bread.
I got some brownies and coffee ready to enjoy later in the evening when another friend of Mikes was coming over before they went out for tennis 😏
I ended the evening by drawing that day’s scripture.
I’ve been posting them on Jemstory’s Instagram with the hashtag #30daysofbiblelettering 🙂 I’m kind of mortified to post my stuff alongside the others who are participating, so it’s a good thing I’m only doing it for the inspiration and structure of having a bit of a plan to follow 😉
