orange is the new black

stepson brought vegs that desperatey need tlc. am having some tonite!  ☺
hi-yah! last weekend home before picking up in the office. guess what? i spent not one, not two but three whole weeks on the kitchen refurbishings. i'm sure i gave most people what's for. i am sorry.

monkey puzzle tree, hometown village walk
now. i had-not-expected-that! call me naïve, call me anything you like. but i'm sure glad we're now on the other end of the holidays and that kitchen is in, and she's just gonna pay off, from now on. 

my new mascotte from thrift shop. hasn't got a name yet! ☻
sure. my kitchen is female, what else? she's gonna have coloured walls, partly clad in pale morrocan tiles before long. only i need to dig those tiles up from the caves and i'm pretty sure i haven't enough tiles. 

yes. ATOMIUM try out. paul auster keeps me company, thank U
sigh. i have NOT drawn a single line. i'm lying. this saturday morning i did draw a few lines. i drew a slim BRUSSELS ATOMIUM version, unintentionally. somewhat rusty would be a synonym to what this is. 

still in studio. 
i have plans for the months to come. i am SO happy my 365 instagram project ends on september 10th. i've just about had it. my efforts amounted to just doubling my 125 followers. i don't get it. 

oh everyone!!! making liquid water colour from old fibre tips!!! 
but. i'm not doubting what i do, what-so-ever. you know? i just go on. i hate commercials, i hate how the world turns, i hate inequality and i am lost for words. often. but i go on. i hope the same for you. 

have a good weekend, and a pleasant week to come. ♥

seven year itch (part 2)

mock wood laminate table tops. hope that was the right choice ☻
the kitchen boys have gone. i've been elbow deep in soapy water and am getting baths and showers of the unbelievable kind. i am so not a cleaning lady, but am taking up brush and dustpan right now. 

kitchen sink (and hidden dish washer) turned 45°
... and water. splashing it all over. not just the kitchen either, but also in the front room, where i completely forgot to cover the open books sideboard. yep. i have been sorry about that. 

all so pristine and white. for now. just for now
naturally, we are singing while doing all of this cleaning malakey, for a new wave has come and i am riding it, even if i am afraid of deep water. i will be singing till sunday night, when i hopefully finish all chores.

as good as done with putting things back in livable order, i mean, the complete ground floor level
how do you like my new kitchen then, he? can i say i am completely smitten, i love it and i want to kiss it, and kiss it all over again. and then start right at the beginning of kissing it. 

vases. as blurry as blurry comes
this is probably the best of all the renov works that have gone on. i mean, seven years is no mean feat, and seeing an end to the strain is just so relieving that i think i can now let go of my fysiotherapist (joking). 

yeah, oh YEAH! totally blew that promise to self to stay away from cake. too good!
soon it'll be drinks and tapas for sure, over those fancy worktops, and people filling the space and i allow you to stroke my sideboards too. come on, you really fancy that, don't you? ☺

have a beautiful sunday and enjoy another week in the docks!
