Thanks-versary

Monday Oct 9th –

Happy thanksgiving-anniversary! πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ΄

Really, perfect timing because when else would you get turkey, stuffing, roasted veggies, buns, steak, scalloped potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce, for a two year anniversary meal?? πŸ’πŸ»

 

And that isn’t even counting the desserts 😏

Mom put out a splendid spread and our guests/pretty much second family, arrived to enjoy it with us, just past noon ☺️

 

 

 

We sat down and stuffed ourselves.

It was delicious and I know MY gut protested, all while my eyes took over filling my plate for the second time πŸ™ˆ

 

Michiel and I were gifted with our first, potted houseplant and the fuchsia petals and pink veined leaves will be happily displayed come move in time πŸ˜‰πŸ’•

I don’t have a picture, as it is already in our kitchen πŸ˜‰πŸŒΏ

 

 

After the meal had settled a little, us ladies walked the 5 km to our house to get some fresh air and in doing so, hopefully free up some room for dessert and coffee 😜

 

The guys came later on, via vehicle of course, and a tour of our ‘home to be’ was held ☺️

Giving an actual place and space for them to picture during any future home decor/renovation discussions πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

 

Back to the other house we went and some scrumptious treats were served up.

Pumpkin square with praline sauce and a plain cheesecake with a thin layer of lemon curd on top.

 

The graham crust of my cheesecake was a total flop but as for the rest, I was really pleased with the outcome ☺️

The recipe can be found at  ‘A Bountiful Kitchen’, I just suggest less crumbs and more butter for the crust β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‹πŸ’•

 

Our afternoon/evening, faded together into one enjoyed day with friends like family… what better way to spend a thanksgiving day? β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•

 

 

 

Tuesday Oct 10th –

I began my morning one of the very best ways I know how (besides sleeping that is) and that was with freshly brewed coffee and a piece of boterkoek (an almond butter cake) made for us by one of the previous day’s guestπŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’•πŸ’•β˜•οΈ

 

 

Then it was time to search the web for home items.

Mike is wanting to move asap all of a sudden and he’s been working hard towards doing just that, so I must be as prepared as possible for when that day comes.

 

By looking for bar stools (?) 😜

I am keeping the ones pictured above ^ in mind, incase the stores around here don’t prove fruitful.

 

 

Then to the basement, where the boxes of memorabilia had to be sorted through yet again, as I couldn’t justify moving more boxes of paper then we have to, come actual moving time.

Why does Jessica keep sooo many drawings and birthday cards?? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

 

I managed to get rid of a heaping garbage bag full and that felt good πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

 

Until the rest of the boxes came out of the one, small room and took most of that good feeling away 😜

 

Let’s just say, I don’t think our place is going to feel all that ’empty’, post move in πŸ˜¬πŸ™ˆ

The bro’s family came over to have leftover turkey for supper with us and then a few plans were made for the mother and I’s trip to the city the next day.
