Twinkly Finishing Touches

Sunday July 23rd –

Dad was once again working away from home so it was Mom, Mike and I who drove to church that morning and then back into town for afternoon errands.

Supplies for new deck lighting that Mom had been wanting were found, so that Mike could work on putting it up and then a sign for a closing out sale at Sears caught our eyes and we figured we might as well check since we were near anyways.

It was busy, messy and the sales lacking the discount a closing out sale should have, in my mind anyways.
I did find some picture frames and Canada pins but that was it, the meager 20% not having much of an effect on my spending 😜

We decided on McDonald’s for lunch, since it was already later in the day and we didn’t feel like waiting to make food at home.
I feel like the prices have went up and the quality went even further down if that’s possible? 😬

Or maybe it’s just that I’m an ‘adult’ now 😜


Once home, Mike went straight away to work putting posts on the deck for the string lights.
It ended up being a longer process then as first thought… so long, that I decided to go nap it out until they were done 😜

I was awoken by Mike asking to assist him in making an evening snack of fried potatoes and chicken fingers.
A super health conscious decision to make at 8 in the evening πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

The twinkly little deck lights lent a lovely aura to our meal though and now I wish my deck was worthy of little lighting too πŸ˜‰βœ¨

Monday July 24th –

A day of preparations.

The sister would arrive the next day and I would also be taking my order of cement pieces to their new home, so they needed some finishing touches.

Mother was making cinnamon buns, loaves of bread and buns, since there was a great need for those things in general… but even greater as the other members of the family were comingπŸ˜‰

Drawing out the tags, printing, cutting, stringing and affixing onto the pieces, took up a very large chunk of my day, but it was a relaxing task and I was excited to get them all done and ready.



 A new color was tested and I must say, the maroon and gold with the matching succulent was pretty legit in my eyes πŸ˜‰


(Custom colors are always available ☺️)


Supper was unplanned mushroom soup and grilled cheese and Mike was a little downtrodden upon seeing what it was, telling us he’d just the other morning he’d been thinking about how much he disliked mushroom soup😜

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 😊
