Let’s Discuss From Dawn To Dusk

Saturday Dec 3rd –




The boys had stayed up late, catching up with each other the previous night, so I was the only one up and tip toeing around the apartment for a little while.

Baking of the casserole began and a small pot of coffee was my lovely, quite companion๐Ÿ˜‰

The boys rolled out of bed around 11 or so and breakfast was enjoyed.

A little clean up/dress up occurred and then we headed out to Arnhem to peruse the stores and hopefully find some things I had been wanting to buy before we leave for Canada ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ›

We walked through the market that was set up outside of the actual town, finding a good sale on raspberries๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

And finding this…??? Anyone know what it is or how it’s eaten? ๐Ÿ™ˆ
We only photographed it, no purchase was made, but it left me curious ๐Ÿค”


Once we went in and out of a few stores I realized yet again how much I dislike shopping๐Ÿ™„
The search for the unknown and squeezing through crowds of people… All just for the hope of finding whatever it is you want.

We took a breather at McDonald’s before continuing on and in the end a few things were found thankfully ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜Š

Including my first air plant ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

Back to the apartment we went to relax, have some coffee and brownie and listen to Mark and to songs chosen by Mark (a wide range of Disney and instrumental, something I approve of since it means someone will sing the stupid songs with me that Mike doesn’t know/appreciate ๐Ÿ˜œ).

Eventually the boys went out for supper and a soccer game and I stayed at the house, cleaning, facetiming and soaking in a few moments of silence.
I’m not used to having so much conversation around… Mike and I are old and silent nowadays๐Ÿ˜‹
No, not silent but for sure not so enthusiastic about conversation as our guest ๐Ÿ˜‰





Sunday Dec 4th –




More casserole, more chit-chat, an hour long drive to church and an enjoyable service took up our morning.

After some post service visiting it was food time and we went to our usual spot๐Ÿ˜‹

Back at the apartment I went for a nap and the boys went to play some tennis.

Once they returned, much of the same occurred as the previous day.
Music chosen by Mark, coffee, almond cake, conversation and one new addition to the entertainment… Speech Jammer.

If you haven’t heard of it, I suggest you go to the App Store and download the free app now and prepare for a simple, yet very humorous pastime.

The point of the app is that it repeats your own voice back to you and in doing so, it jams up whatever you are trying to say.
Making even the most intelligent sounding person incapable of getting out one word๐Ÿ˜‹

If anyone attempts this, I suggest reading a fairytale to make full use of the effect.
And please, let me know if you found it even a little humorous ? ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜

After the tears of laughter were wiped away we settled back into conversation and chilling and I did the days verse drawing.

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
