Bonding Via Plants, Cars And Cement

Monday May 8th –

Mother returned from her weekend away and we caught up on the goings on over leftover shrimp pasta 😏

Her dog bitten leg had morphed into a yellow and purple, swollen lump, with teeth scrapes visibly seen across it all.
Nasty 😬😜

She had been placed in charge of bringing back plants from Dad, for my sister-in-law and I 😊

Which she advised him against, telling him flowers aren’t top on my list but this time the potted variety was perfect 😉💕👌🏻
Mike and I had been considering doing up an outside planter and decided we didn’t neeeed one… so now I get one anyways! 😋

Mike came back from work with burnt fingertips 😬
Having slipped and tried righting himself by reaching out and grabbing the wrong thing, the exhaust pipe 😖
His pain got him enough sympathy that the requested banana chocolate chip muffins he so badly wanted, were made.

Even though I’d considered and promptly decided NOT to make them earlier in the day😜

Tuesday May 9th –

A head cold/allergy thing kept me in bed longer then usual but once I did arise it was almost straight outside to test out some concrete DIY stuff I’d searched up the night before.

That seemed exhausting so then it was back to bed, where I stayed most of the day 😋

Mom was working so I had supper duty and moose was the chosen meat.
I decided to bread and fry it and make a kind of soya/ginger sauce to go with it, rice, salad and toast.

(This time, I was wiser about the direction you cut meat in and it wasn’t as chewy as my last moose meat attempt 😜)

On Sunday, we’d possibly sold our SUV, so Mike had been on the lookout for another vehicle, just in case ðŸ˜‰

(Who am I kidding, he’s always on the lookout, whether we need or not 😜)

So to a little town we went, to check out a smaller car.

I drove back alone if that tells you anything 😏

He said that he really isn’t going to put this car up for sale, for a while because he likes it, was happy with the price and we need it. Also because he felt a bond with the guy who sold it to us because he was also an immigrant 😂

I’m accepting guesses on how long it’ll stay offline 😏😜

Once my patience could last no longer, I took out my little cement creations/plant holders and I was pretty pleased with them and their perfect, imperfections 😊👌🏻💕

Here is a project Mike had been working on now and again for sometime too, a cement light.

My idea, his brains and effort to bring it to life.

After some trial and error, this one turned out very nicely and now we just need a dimmer bulb, so we aren’t blinded by it 😬😋

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 😊
