Bedraggled And Belgium Bound

Thursday Nov 17th –



So much for my sickness being done and gone… I woke up feeling worse than I had any of the previous days!
Pounding head, aching bones and head and nose and eyes that wouldn’t stop running… joy.

The house desperately needed cleaning since I’d prolonged it until a day Mike worked at the office so that got done and it’s never felt so exhausting to clean such a small space 😜

The plan was for us to head to Belgium late that evening and spend the weekend with Mikes, dad’s, cousins family (excuse the long descriptionπŸ˜‹) but the way I was feeling was leaving me undecided if I should go, feeling wise and germ spreading wise 😬

Decision aside Mike couldn’t go empty handed, so some rice krispies were made.

Using some super cute/weird marshmallows 😜


Supper also had to be prepared and though I couldn’t taste much, some ingredients had to be used up and it was time to try out the Greek seasonings we had brought back with us.

Greek burgers, fried potatoes, green beans, garlic bread and tzaztiki sauce.

What I could taste, seemed familiarly right but I look forward to trying it again when my taste buds are back to normal 😏

The decision was made to accompany Mike to Belgium and hope to recover quickly and if not, sleep is pretty much the same wherever you are.


Friday Nov 18th –



Mike got up earlyish to start with the work he’d been asked to help with (hence the reason for us going for the weekend).

I pretty much lounged around and did the usual sick ish person things.
Drew a little and then to bed to write, rest and eventually FaceTime with my sister since time zones/schedules lined up finally 😊

Mike and the guys had to take the building of a picnic table area slowly due to rainy weather so I believe they were in and out of the house pretty often πŸ˜‹

Supper time came and we got to enjoy a tasty penne pasta with a meaty tomato sauce😊

After that a mixture of conversation, relaxing on the couch and trying out the kids hoverboard spent up the rest of that evening.
An activity that actually makes you less active but seems stupidly entertaining 😜

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 😊
