Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Thursday June 15th –



Not long after waking up I sat down to add in detail to the living room sketch I began the evening before.

By the time I finished that it was lunch time, Mom having made us some gourmet Kraft dinner with turkey lunch meat cut up and added in for some protein value 😜

I was starving so the first bite was delicious, the second average and by the third… I was realizing Kraft dinner tastes a lot better as a child😜

Mom had the nieces graduation to attend but I deemed it okay to miss, as I didn’t feel like she’d find my presence necessary 😏

Instead I stayed back and worked on supper.

Attempting to make a similar sauce to one we liked in Germany but failing and instead having a normal, spaghetti and meatball meal… and not the creamy mozza and tomato sauce it should have been.

After that sauce was made I went to our place in town to finally sand the vanity 😬

It was a shorter process then I thought it would be and I hadn’t went prepared to begin the painting process so back home I went, putting the finishing touches on supper.

That evening was set up for the MacDowall June Bug events that would be happening over the weekend so the folks and hubby headed out and I stayed and cleaned up from dinner.


Friday June 16th –


Mike had taken the day off from work, wanting to do some stuff at the house for a change.

I made the Lazy German/Dutch Baby Pancake for breakfast.

I can’t figure out the real name of the dish and I feel like ‘lazy’ is more descriptive than Dutch Baby but Mike finds the German bit offensive😜

(I’ll post the recipe soon as it has become a fairly easy favourite πŸ˜‰)

It was baked and enjoyed by us and Mother and then Mike and I headed to the house to get some stuff done 🏚

It began with Mike turning on the CD player and putting in a cd I’d made when I was… let’s just say younger and leave it at that πŸ˜‰

It was filled with Disney and other odd and entertaining songs, all inspiring me to work but causing Mike to have trouble concentrating 😜

I put the first coat of primer on the vanity and then we went upstairs to the master bedroom to get the sub floor in there.



The sub floor was fully put in and we decided to tear out the cedar planking from the ceiling too.
I’d considered leaving it on and painting it just to add some texture but there were many loose slats and they wouldn’t be easily fixed back in, as it was just drywall behind them.

It did make the room look bigger so hopefully that makes up for the fact we now have to sand and patch more walls πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‹

Mom stopped in and brought us a snack of cheese, crackers, pickles and turkey lunch meat and it was readily accepted and enjoyed πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»



We worked and wondered what we could do where, getting to the point where we really consider what is worth taking out or what can be left as is😜

We headed black for an early-ish supper of lemon pepper chicken wings, fries and veggies, before heading to the town hall for the beginning of the weekends baseball tournaments.

The Mom, Hubster and Bro were all on a team and the Dad, Sis and I were along for supportπŸ˜‰βšΎοΈ


Becca and I bonded over our non existing knowledge of the game and then had to ask who won when it was over.

Our team did 😎😜⚾️πŸ’ͺ🏼

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 😊
