A Mornings Peculiarities

Thursday July 27th –


My day began by making salad.

Not my usual morning task, I know 😜

We were headed to the sisters house for lunch but I wanted to try out a quinoa salad I’d seen online, so I got at it and then also made juice to utilize some of the abundant fruit that was taking up the counter space 😏

Chopping, mixing and clean up, took most of the morning and then a blog was posted and over to the sisters I went to join the others ☺️

We all enjoyed the salad and I would happily make it again!
The chicken fingers beside were a good touchπŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»


(Watch for the recipe ☺️🍴)

After visiting there for a while, I headed to our place in town to try cleaning out the bathroom, even just a little, so that it was a mini step nearer to being prepared for paint time πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨

I picked a handful of our raspberries before heading back home, enjoying eating them beside our one lily plant that the previous owners had planted as well 😊


As I scrolled through Instagram, I came across a picture that affirmed something for me… I want this color door SOMEWHERE in our house😎



Friday July 28th –


My work schedule had been moved around, so my usual day of cleaning had been prolonged until that Friday.

I headed out, the sky’s dark with storms to come, lighting flashing off and on in my rear view mirror the whole drive, while I was yet driving in the sunny patches.

Typical Sask weather.

Sunshine and blue sky, bright yellow canola fields and then ominous dark clouds to one side, making for some stunning contrast in my opinion


I cleaned while listening to Focus On The Families radio drama of ‘Bonhoeffer’.
A Protestant Lutheran Pastor, theologian, and active member in the German resistance to the policies of Hitler.

I love books on tape and radio dramas, so it helped to pass the time immensely 😊

Back at home, I retired to the cool basement to relax and paint a little before us girls all headed to town to go for a walk.

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 😊
