The best day of the week is here again – and my hope for the day is that the contractor will be able to piece a lot of the kitchen together without that much trouble.
No unwanted mishaps, please.
We have no set plans for Saturday, but Sunday we´ll see The Addams Family musical here in my city – and I´ve been looking forward to that so much! I loved the creepiness of the Addams family as a child (I watched the re-runs of the old black and white version on TV) and I imagine my rascals will enjoy the musical.
Besides that, I guess I´ll just look for something beautiful to photograph. Seems like the best thing to do when baking and cooking is impossible, don´t you think?
Have a fantastic weekend!
you can get some candy in the mail.
It´s not that hard really – I just want a reason to give away some candy.
Plus I need to occupy my mind – the kitchen got delivered today but they haven´t started putting it all together so I´m anxious as a child on Christmas Eve.
It´s not easy being me at the moment, so you can see the need for play.
Fire away - if more than one tells me the right answer I´ll draw a winner! You´ll have until Saturday…
We´re told that the kitchen will arrive tomorrow – I can´t wait! Do you remember this pic from the livingroom?
Well, now it looks like this:
Holy moly – talk about messy! But as you can see; the light is flowing in this area now and I absolutely love that. For someone who loves photography, the light (and absence of) is a big deal and this will make my life easier during those dark winter months we have here in Sweden.
Today hubby and I went looking for a new sofa since the rascals will have our old one, we found some nice ones but won´t hurry to buy – we want to feel 100% sure that it´s the right one.
The fact is that we´ve entered a new phase in our family life; the rascals are big enough to be careful with things and the furniture don´t have to be as robust. The options hence multiplied and the last thing I´m gonna do is hurry anything; I rather wait until I find what I like.
It feels great to be able to to that.
Have you had a good day?
Oh, I almost forgot to make this post thanks to all of the dizziness the renovation brings – but it´s time for Tuesdays around the world again. I´m so glad the weather has been OK so we´ve been able to stay outside a lot, doing things like this for example:
She´s adorable when she´s not a menace!
Today I´ll go to the hairdresser again and hopefully get my hair a bit lighter, if I get the chance I´ll show you later. But first; try to get the rascals to eat breakfast in their upside down home (especially my youngest is bothered by the mess at breakfast time) and get myself to work..!
Thanks for your encouragement yesterday, I´m thankful for the reminder that this will turn out good in the end!

Hello sweeties – I may blog a little less for a couple of days now since my home is totally upside down and that rubs me the wrong way. This is how the kitchen looks now (iPhone pic):
Since the renovation will happen in both the kitchen and a little bit in the livingroom everything in those rooms had to be moved to other rooms – which means that the whole house is a mess.
I kid you not – a mess.
Today the contractor will take down the wall between the livingroom and kitchen so it will at least be exciting to come home – what a difference it will make! I have to admit though that I´m a bit moody and easily irritated by the whole circus.
Oh well, cross your fingers that it will work smoothly without disasters.
I´ve added a Twitter widget here on my blog, I don´t tweet that much but you can now see my tweets (and tweet to me) here on the right. I hope you´ll like that little addition!
Take care today!
Since we´ve had a holiday and hence been off work Thursday and Friday, I´ve been walking around at home today with the nagging thought that I should be somewhere else – like at work.
Hubby and I have both been pretty confused about which day it really is, but then everything else is upside down too thanks to the kitchen renovation so maybe it´s not that strange that we´re not totally on track.
The only thing left to do in the kitchen now is to remove the fridge and freezer – besides that all is blown out. Looks really funny – and the cat and dog doesn´t quite know what to do with themselves.
I just played a little with the photo above to relax – Photoshop is a great way to rewind, don´t you think?
Oh well, now I´ll have a little glass of white wine and chocolate – see you!
Everything is upside down right now and it´s actually quite hard to imagine that we´ll have a new, fresh kitchen soon.
So far I´m mostly focusing on finding things since we´ve had to pack everything but the absolutely necessary away – hubby however loves to take the old kitchen down. I think there´s a demolition gene in most men actually.
Sorry for the blurry pic – I think I had a nervous breakdown when I took it!
Here I´m taking the pic through the current door opening that we´re closing (I´m standing in the hallway):
And here I´m standing in the livingroom, facing the wall that we´ll take down:
As you can imagine, everything will look very different soon – I can´t wait to see the finished kitchen!
Yesterday the contractor came and delivered the floor so we had time to chat a little, and he seems to be in control of everything. He has built a lot of HTH kitchens so he knows the drill – which is a relief for me.
Oh well, cross your fingers that it will work smoothly – I´ll keep you updated!
I´m thinking that certain days are aligned with the universe in a better way than others.
Those days when I can grab a cup of coffee and sit peacefully in the sunroom instead of rushing out the door in the morning. When the air is sweet and I can hear my rascals whisper in the livingroom and their voices blend with birdsong from the forest behind our house. When the day move forward in a steady pace with small happenings here and there and ends with a dinner with friends and laughter until my stomach hurts. When I tuck the boys in way too late and their scent linger on my skin so I don´t want to wash my face.
I just had one of those days.
I hope you had it too.
We are rather fond of Sandwich Cake here in Sweden – or Smörgåstårta as we call it. I have many memories of Sandwich cakes at graduations, birthdays and Midsummer Eve´s when I grew up, and we still eat it on occasion.
Yesterday we had this one and it´s my favourite version, with lots and lots of shrimp. It´s actually perfect food for warm days since it´s served cold. There´s plenty of recipes online if you´d be interested in trying this, or you could check out the link above.
It´s early morning here and it looks like it will be a fantastic day, the air is already warm. Even though we have to continue with the kitchen, I´ll make sure to enjoy the weather to the fullest – hopefully with a run this afternoon.
What are your plans – do tell!
I have a Camellia in my sunroom – and it´s just so gorgeous. There´s something about those chubby buds that makes my heart jump with joy whenever I lay my eyes on them – they are perfect in all their softness and they know it.
And I love that the flowers are both pink, red and white on the same plant. The best of three worlds!
Join Tuesdays around the world and show us what you love today!
