One Fish, Two Fish…

Saturday Jan 14th –





Breakfast for the boys was fried plantain with cinnamon and brown sugar atop of yogurt and granola.
Not super exciting but hey, I wasn’t expecting anyone to feed besides Mike and I 😏

I had a more than awful nights sleep so when Mike left to take Jesse back to their parents I stayed at the apartment to lay on the couch and half ways nap 😬

Mike was taking a fair bit of time to return but little did I know that the reason was going to be what it was.


He returned with two goldfish, two bowls to choose from and one plant πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ’§πŸŒΏπŸ 

We had discussed getting a fish or two on a few occasions but we never did and that morning he overheard me talking about goldfish with Jesse and he decided enough was enough and he’d just get some.

He did it for me, which was sweet ❀
I’m just not 100% sure I like goldfish 😜

It took some time to set up the fish home and I was able to finally make use of some shells found at the coast πŸšπŸŒΏπŸ’§

They don’t have names but there’s a few being thought about but if anyone has suggestions, feel free to let me know πŸ˜‹
(The orange ones a boy and the multi color one is a girl… in my opinion 😏)

Our niece Amy came over for a short visit, followed not long after by Jesse and Sophie.
Since he was back at our place already since that morning, we figured he might as well stay for supper and a movie 😏

But not before we all went over to Oma and Opas for a short visit with everyone.

Once we were back at the apartment the boys watched soccer as I finished up supper preparations.
Can you tell they are brothers? 😏

Supper was fresh tortellini with a creamy tomato sauce, seasoned chicken and garlic bread.

Followed by popcorn and movie about the war called, ‘The State Of Jones’.
It was a bit of a long movie and a tad confusing but it did make one stop to think about how much suffering really did go on, not only during but also long after the war.



Sunday Jan 15th –


It had snowed again over night.

Is that interesting? Possibly I suppose.

After church we were invited over to Mikes cousins to eat Greek food with them and when have we ever said no to Greek? 😁

We had an enjoyable visit there before heading back to the apartment where I took a ridiculously long, lovely nap.
The boys were both amused by the fish.

The end 😜

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 😊
