A Mundane Midweek


Wednesday June 21st –

The parents headed off to the lake and I was left at home with a slight ‘remember to do’ listπŸ˜‰πŸ“

Instead of working on that, I made cupcakes as there was icing left from the unicorn cake and though I’m not a big dessert person, I love confetti cupcakes πŸ˜¬πŸ’•

From there it was clean up, drink the coffee, do the blog, working on odds and ends that aren’t really worth mentioning but still had to be done, etc. etc. πŸ˜‹

Tortilla pizzas were prepared for supper once Mike got back from work and then we moseyed over to the bro’s house for a slight visit and vehicle swap as a truck box was needed for the next days errands.


Thursday June 22nd –



Michiel had gotten up early and driven to the city to pick up machine parts.

I woke up, made coffee and just got myself town ready when he returned back to the house.

I then went with him to town and we stopped at Home Hardware while we were together, to price out some vanity options as we still hadn’t found a good course of action to take with that issue.

I don’t want a double sink. I don’t want a $500.00 dollar custom order πŸ™„

Then to his work location to drop off him and the parts he’d gotten, so I could take the sister back her truckπŸ˜‹

Lucky for me I got there at lunch time and was able to sneak in on the pasta and cheese smokies πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŒπŸ»
We got in some visiting and the decision was then made that she would come to Mom and Dads place later in the day to enjoy our coffee with me, since she doesn’t like her own brewπŸ˜‹

So home I went and nap I did πŸ™ˆ

It had been rainy and grey for daaaaaays and it did nothing to inspire activity.

Becca and the kids came over for coffee and cupcakes and then I began some supper preps, hoping Mike wouldn’t hate me for what I decided to make 😜


Rice papers filled with shredded carrots, sunflower seeds, peppers, cucumbers and shrimp, wrapped and then dipped in lemon, ginger and sesame salad dressing.

They were good and do make a tasty appetizer!

I just wasn’t sure what he would think of them as the main supper item but he was good with it and I appreciated his willingness to eat whatever I come up with πŸ˜‰

With Mom gone, I found out again, how unexciting it is to cook full-out meals for just two of us 😬

Too much thought and prep to make such a small amount of meal 😜

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 😊
