An Inaccurate Portrayal

Monday Nov 6th –

Monday was boring from a written down point of view 😏

Nothing out of the ordinary, the usual this and that, all very uninteresting πŸ™„

Supper was a little interesting through in the fact that Mike had bought some souvlaki pork things to tryΒ and we impatiently waited for them to grill.

They turned out to be pretty good, a nice change from other forms of pork and reminiscent of our times in Greece πŸ˜‰

Tuesday Nov 7th –

The morning was spent with high levels of procrastination.Resulting in many small things actually getting done (which isn’t a bad thing) and one large thing, not.

The deck needed shovelling πŸ™„

Finally I did that and then I settled down to paint some cards and add the floral aspect onto the giveaways print ☺️🌡

That was also an area for procrastination, because I reaaaally didn’t want to mess up the written piece 😬

So, really it was a productive day, just slow in the making😜

Supper was a flop.

‘A $16 piece of meat’ kind of flop 😬

I’d been looking for a corned beef brisket for sometime and finally I found some in Safeway.

The staggering prices for the little pieces of meat seemed hard to swallow but I assured Mike it tasted good and I’d eaten it before.

Turned out I made it LITERALLY hard to swallow too πŸ˜πŸ™„

There is no picture, it looked edible, thus it didn’t seem like an accurate portrayal 😜

I don’t know if I just overcooked it, cut it on the wrong grain, maybe both of those things, but all in all, I don’t know if I’ve really felt that much sense of loss while eating… dollar wiseπŸ™ˆ

The potatoes were undercooked too, so it was not a great ‘wife-ing’ moment…hopefully it just makes the next meal seem fantastic😜

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 😊

  1. We all have those not so good ‘wife-ing’ moments (I hope), that’s why I always keep an extra pizza in the fridge, juuust in case πŸ˜‹πŸ™ˆ
