Monumental Findings And Moments

Wednesday Dec 6th –

I excitedly worked on the home reveal blog post that morning, looking forward to seeing what everyone had to say about it πŸ˜‰

Then went into town to look at a kitten and clean a house.
The kitten was obviously accepted and an arrangement made to pick her up the next day 😏

I cleaned for over four hours, making up for time missed while I’d been away.
You never think of how sore hands can get from wringing out a cloth, until after doing it so repetitively 😜

After supper, Mike and I went to our place which needed re-cleaning all the time and little things which needed doing, never seeming to end πŸ˜‰
Mike and the bro got the light in our stairwell working and it looks πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’•


Our European lights aren’t seeming to work correctly here 😬
The living room chandelier shines so dull that it’s purely for looks and the stairwell light needed a totally new inside piece before it would even turn on.
Fingers crossed something will work out to use our kitchen chandelier 😩

Thursday Dec 7th –

To town.
For kittens.

And groceries and blinds and, and, and 😜

We found some good finds though, this mirror from the habitat store being rather perfect! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»


Mike peeled the stickers off and it was regularly $100 and we got it for $35!! πŸ˜†


I found an odd little sugar type dish at Value Village and am growing rather fond of it Β πŸ˜‹


Curtains were found at Jysk but will have to be unpacked and hung, before I decide if I keep them or not.
The rug in the living room has a lot of color already so I want to stay neutral with the curtains but still fun πŸ˜‰

Many more little things were accomplished, including another online grocery order being picked up πŸ˜‰

Then, the best for last, kitten pick up πŸ’•

We went in and the nice lady gave us the kitten I had chosen and I asked her to show Mike the orange one I had also liked, just so he could see it.
It laid in his arms and he stroked its soft fluff a few times before looking up with eyes aglow with more affection than I see when he looks at me.
It was more like the affection I see now and then when he gets an especially good steak πŸ˜‚

Anyways, we left with two kittens.
Oops… accidents happen 😝

More unpacking of items happened that evening and then, after grabbing a few more things from the parents house, our first night was spent in our new home πŸ™‚

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 😊
