An Aroma Of Pure Perfection β˜•οΈ

Tuesday Nov 1st –



I woke up with the sore throat gifted to me from Mikes own slightly ill self πŸ™„

The sun was shining through our window and it looked like a lovely day was ahead, but not so long after the clouds and fog came in πŸ˜•πŸŒ₯

Mike was working from home, meaning I become even less productive and the house stays constantly a tad messy 😏

(Our work station😜) 

We finished up the farmers sausage soup and it’ll be some time now until we have it again, farmers sausage from Saskatchewan isn’t so easily mailed😁

There was a plan in place to go for a walk together, but just the idea of that put me in bed for a nap 😜

I woke to smells of something cooking and found Mike had heated up a pizza for us πŸ˜ŠπŸ•

Brown Paper Packages Readied And Received

Monday Sept 19th –

Grilled sandwiches for lunch, accompanied by a fruit smoothie per Mikes request.

After lunch my hubby had some sweaters to go pick up for him and his friends brand, ‘We Nomads.’

Check them out!➑️  We Nomads

I got to be the one who helped take photos and write up info 😏
But I do really like the products and the colors and design of the limited fall collection were on point πŸ˜‰

They were all sold and packaged to be sent away within a few hours!

Supper was on me and it was taco salad, which I’m thankfully now able to make again since Dorothy brought me the salad dressing it requires.

I thought about giving the instructions for taco salad, but anyone here in Europe probably won’t be able to get the Kraft, Catalina dressing and to me that’s kind of the main part of that salad πŸ˜‹

Not much else was done on Monday, not by me anyways.

Mike made he and I some tasty, whipped cream topped hot chocolate that evening, which seemed fitting considering the weathers slight cooling off the last couple days.



Tuesday Sept 20th –


Breakfast and coffee in bed yet again β€οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ΄

In my defence, he was working from home so he did have some time to prepare It πŸ˜‰

Another morning brightener? Mail!! πŸ˜„πŸ’•πŸ’Œ

My dear sister and niece sent me a package, including some home ground coffee, iron man Lego and some funny and thoughtful notes 😊
It was much appreciated πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Mike and I went to the store and he spotted some pretzels which made his eyes light up, remembering the chocolate covered pretzels Josh and Pro introduced to him when we were in AZ. 😏

Back at the house it was my task to add the dipped in chocolate part, though he did dip most of the second tray😁

Inge made us a tasty supper of pasta topped with peanut sautΓ© sauce.
Not something I’d normally eat or think to make but something that was enjoyed for sure😊

Jem Moment: Housed And Accessorized

Thursday Sept 15th

Folks, we have a house!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ’πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Well, for being homeless since June we have actually managed rather well and obviously we were supposed to wait for this place so, after much waiting and praying we now will have our very own first home in an apartment building come October 10th.

Another slightly less important but still exciting for me ‘Jem Moment’ is this awesome necklace I got for shipping cost only!
~ Necklace ~

It was awaiting me once we got back from our road tripπŸ“¦
