Did You Know Sloths Can Swim?

Wednesday Dec 7th –



Finally got that bacon and egg breakfast made by Mike πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ΄


That morning we got the good news about me being accepted as Mikes sponsor for him to be able to come to Canada eventually.
It was a welcome bit of information and nice to know for sure that they had our stuff and were working on it.
Now they begin work on his paper 😬



We had to leave the apartment around 4:00 to pick up Oma and Opa who were joining us for supper at Judith’s 😊
She prepared the meal requested by Mike, meatballs covered in a tasty tomato and cheese sauce, eaten atop noodles πŸ΄πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Afterwords we went to Wednesday night service and I got to enjoy a sermon in English since a brother from the States was speaking😊


Thursday Dec 8th –



Breakfast was our market bought raspberries with cream and sugar πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β€οΈ


The place needed cleaning, the blog needed updating etc.etc. 😏

John and Inge planned to come over for dinner and Chinese food was the suggested meal.

I long for Chinese food like I’m used to eating in the States or in Canada 😞

I’ve found that any Chinese food I have eaten here, has no taste.
Every dish and sauce blends together in the same flavour – the flavour of nothing 😜
But hey what do I know 😏

Coffee and ‘banketstaaf’ (the official name of the almond cake thing I’ve been enjoying) was next on the menu and after some catching up the evening concluded.


Once all was cleaned up again the days verse was sketched.


And then some ‘BBC Animal Planet 2’ was watched😁

I actually like it and find it pretty interesting and Mike knows, well… not much when it comes to animals πŸ˜‹
So it’s an educational show for us both πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ¦€πŸ—πŸπŸ πŸŒ

Did you know sloths could swim? Cause I didn’t😏

Fiji actually enjoyed it too, he sat and watched the entire episode with cat-like focus, not taking his eyes from the screen and hardly twitching an ear at hearing us say his nameπŸ˜‹

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 😊
