Monday Dec 4th –
After I made us some French Omeletes for breakfast, Mike and I went to our place to work on getting it completed.
Cleaning, cleaning again, moving stuff, painting small things, moving the same things again etc., filled the day.
Mike worked on patching the trim for the most part and a list of what was required to still buy pre move-in was started.
And that is how our day was spent 💁🏻♀️
Mom had hamburger steaks prepared for our supper and then the parents and Mike were off to pickle ball 😏
Tuesday Dec 5th –
French omeletes made again, mostly because Mom had tried a bite the morning before and requested her own for that morning 😉
And then back to the house, again. Continue reading “Again And Again”
Saturday Dec 2nd –
Sick of hearing about pies yet? 😏
Well… plug your eyes and read no more 😎
Apple pie… the one I really was not looking forward to making at all, as I wouldn’t enjoy the ‘fruits’ of my labour 😜
Still it had to be done and I knew Michiel and Dad would appreciate it so that helped… kind of😏
Mom made pizzas for us all for lunch and then Mike and I retreated to the house. Continue reading “Sincerely And Satisfactorily”
Tuesday Oct 3rd –
If I don’t keep up with writing, I remember nothing 🤷🏻♀️
I know I worked out (trying to get back into after the trip to Az ruined me🙄) and Mike worked at the house, putting up some more trim and what not.
He checked the mail and the wedding photo albums for our mothers had arrived and they looked great, so we happily awaited ours, which would be slightly larger 💑👌🏻📚
Wednesday Oct 4th –
Michiel had work to do with the bush business and Mother was out and about, so I had the house to myself and things to accomplish. Continue reading “Little And Less”
Sunday Oct 1st –
Breakfast by Bob and then off to church.
It was communion service that evening at church, so we had been invited for lunch and to spend the afternoon with friends at the home of a lovely human, whose cooking I haven’t gotten to enjoy for a looong time 😉👌🏻
Borscht soup and a ham, apple, cheese and pear butter sandwich filled my plate and my heart was very happy 😁🍴
Or would that be my stomach? My stomachs heart? 😜
Anyways, it was delicious and followed by the second choice of soup, lemon chicken rice and a caprese style sandwich 👌🏻
A leisurely afternoon of visiting followed until it was time to head back to church.
It’s always an uplifting evening and many share testimonies of what God has been doing in their lives 💕
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wondrous deeds. Continue reading “A Happy Stomachs Heart”
Friday Sept 29th –
After a rude awaking from the husband to start the day off right, (wrong 😒) he and I headed over to our house to begin a day of the large and small tasks that lead us ever closer to completion.
Some days I go there and I’m like, ‘wow it’s so close to being done actually!’ and other days, I look around and think ‘wow… so much still has to be done…’ 😜
And I haven’t even hardly done any of it 🙈💁🏻
We built the second dresser for our bedroom and Mike got that squished into place before starting the preparations for the bedroom for flooring.
I went to work washing out more window sills and then a painting station was set up so that I could start turning our trim, grey.
Mike found us a second hand bed frame from the habitat store, so I also sanded that to have it ready to paint, when I was.
Mike got most of the master bedroom floored and then we ran out of flooring so we headed home for supper.
The bro who was in town, was a champ and picked us up the remaining boxes we would need to finish upstairs the next day.
Or as Michiel has no idea of what the word ‘patience’ means, he finished the whole upstairs, that night 😏
Continue reading “Wow…”
Mike went to work on the house, as per usual.
I stayed home.
Also rather ‘usual’ 🙈
I worked on getting some cement orders ready, a blog up, lettering done and some last minute straightening up of the premises, because the parents were finally coming back!
It was three weeks since we had last seen them, so there was actually some cause for excitement 😉😜
I made Mike and I tomato, bacon sandwiches on jalapeño bagels for lunch and after eating them we were going to head back to the house.
