Simply Taken Suggestions๐Ÿ˜

Monday Nov 21st –

 
Back at our little abode.

As most my days at home the day began with reading and drawing.


But the drawing took longer than usual since I was feeling shaky from the still present sickness ๐Ÿ™„

The first bracelet order was photographed, packaged and sealed, ready to be sent off to New Zealand.



Wax seals are ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Check out the bracelet post  Personalized Children’s Bracelets  for details about getting your own bracelet ordered for the wee humans on your Christmas lists ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

After that I was craving sweets and I had the ingredients on hand to try out a cookie recipe suggested to me by my sister.
Turns out I should take her suggestions to heart more often because the cookies turned out deliciously, and I’m not even a real big fan of cookies ๐Ÿ˜œ

I can safely say they will be made again as soon as I can buy skor bits again back in Canada.

Which by the way, is coming up super soon!
The count down is officially on for our trip back to Sask.
It was always on but now it’s close enough to actually count down to and not just guesstimate to make it seem closer ๐Ÿ˜œ
I also had inspiration for a super simple DIY project.

Turning my chia latte container into a pretty holder for my paintbrushes/pens using some gift wrap ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
Mike came back from work and I must mention that I didn’t ask him to buy even one thing…
He came back with 11 or so things, of which only 1 was really needed ๐Ÿ˜
And people say woman are the ones who spend too much shopping.


Now, though he does shop a bit too much I have to say he does have a ‘good’ or at least ‘sweet’ reason behind most his purchases.
Chocolates with pecans cause he knows I like pecans, a toy for Fiji because he felt like he was bored, avocados cause they were little ones and he thought I’d think they were cute.. you get the idea ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

 


Tuesday Nov 22nd –

 

 

The usual occurred post waking up…


Eduardo finally got to washing the outside of our balcony windows ๐Ÿ˜

The house got tidied and a spaghetti squash cooked.
It was a large one so I had to cook one half of it at a time… meaning it took around 2 hours of just cooking time, not counting the in between preps, seasonings and scraping it out once it was cooked.
Then breading chicken in corn flakes and waiting for Sarah, Erwin and the girls to arrive๐Ÿ˜Š

I’d promised her I’d have them over to try the squash once we found one since she’d never had one before.


Spaghetti squash, fried chicken and tomato sauce topped with parmesan and basil (as suggested by my sis ๐Ÿ˜Ž) turned out pretty tastily.

I think ๐Ÿ˜‹

Afterwords Mike got to enjoy the after eight cream dessert Sarah had made specially for him (spoiled) and Sarah and I got to enjoy warmed up cookies ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿช

(I see no point in eating cold cookies.)

Hello humans ๐Ÿ˜Š 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š
