‘And It A Nice Day’ Title Chosen By Niece ;)

Monday June 5th –


Mike and I got up and ready for the days work ahead of us.

With him heading to the family mill, after dropping me off to clean a new furniture store in town before they open up shop.

I was asked to come help the lady I’d previously cleaned with and together, we wiped, scrubbed, vacuumed and tidied steadily, for 8.5 hours 😬

Time went by fairly quickly but come 3:00 ish, my energy reserves were beginning to fail me.
My feet and arms not used to continual usage, hours on end 😜

It was a good day of hard work but once Mike came to get me at 5:30 I was more than ready to kick my shoes off and tend to my wounds.
A sliced arm, stubbed pinky and cardboard cut knuckles making me hope even harder that I can continue to sell the cement items 😜

Mike had gotten me a Starbucks iced coffee but since he’d asked for less ice, they had just filled the whole thing with milk and it was pathetic tasting πŸ™„
So in accordance to Starbucks policy, I went in and got a new one made free, with an extra shot of espresso πŸ˜Žβ˜•οΈ


Someone had finally wanted to buy some leftover plates from our wedding, so we dropped those off, exchanged some lights at Rona and then headed over to the sister-in-laws place for dinner.
We were served crab rolls and cucumber salad🍴


We hung out with everyone there for a while and then called it a night 😴

Tuesday June 6th –


Rhubarb coffee cake baked by the sis the day before, made for the perfect breakfast πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Not long into the day we headed over to Becca’s (sister-in-law) with the kids so they could play together as much as possible pre trips end.

Our gramma came out for a visit, bringing pizza and the ever amazing cheese/garlic bread sticks for lunch πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»



After chatting for a while, Gramma wanted to play some badminton so out we went.
Attempting to play through the gusting wind and blinding sun 😜🏸
Not getting real far but satisfying her sports desire I suppose πŸ˜‹

We parted ways mid afternoon, leaving Al to play with her cousin while she was still around.

For once, the youngest niece (sick for a week) decided to nap without her mom beside her, so we took advantage of that by jogging around the yard for a while.

I don’t love physical activity, you all should know that by now 😜

But out of all sport like things, jogging is probably one of the lesser hated in my books and with the encouragement of my sister, we did 3km at as fast a pace as we could force out… after having stuffed ourselves on cheesy, doughy bread that is πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜

That was exhausting and then not long after, we were able to fully replenish our strength with the Chester Fried Chicken and potato wedges that Mom had brought home for supper πŸ˜ŽπŸ—



Best. Fried chicken. Ever. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

I gorged myself on it and then later we were all paying the price, longing for more water then our mouths and stomachs could actually hold but needing to quench the terrible thirst the chicken had brought upon us πŸ˜œπŸ’§

Pro and Mom went to town with the youngest to take her in to emergency and try to figure out what she needed to make her a slightly happier child.
After stupidly being directed to one place and then another, they finally found out she had tonsillitis.
I kid you not, within 20 minutes of her taking meds… she was a new (ish) child πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’Š
Smiling at us, not crying with every form of interaction, playing on her own…
We were all relieved πŸ˜‰

While they had been in town, Dad, Mike, Al (oldest girl of my sisters) and I went to our house in town to try to get some yard work done quickly.


The grass desperately needed cutting and raking and the trees which had survived transplanting, needed water after the scorching days we’d been having, if I had any hopes of the few left, living 😬🌿


(Titles are hard, as I mention often 😜 So tonight as I was close to publishing this post, I turned to my 5 year old niece for her thoughts on what the title should be, thus ‘And It A Nice Day’  πŸ˜‰ )

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 😊
