Apartment Therapy Weekend Project

This Weekend: Give Your Kitchen a Fresh Feel With This Easy Task – This weekend, give your kitchen cabinets a good cleaning…

A good project for a lazy weekend (since I do this all the time) :) I have to because of the shiny surface you can see every wet finger ever touching. Starting with an easy task can be a good thing and today it was…

With the cabinets clean and shiny I just had to vacuum. The house begged to be aired out and cleaned in the beautiful spring weather…

Before I finish with the floors I enjoy a break…

Life is good at 54. Look in the mirror and I see the same 18-year-old I always see. It is all the others who is looking so much older. I am okay With the grey hair and the wrinkles because that is not what I see in the mirror. Sometimes self-deception is a good thing.

I treated myself with a gift…

Coloring books for grown-ups. It was so tempting and since I did have a set of aquarelle pencils I only bought the book.

I have wanted to watch season Three of House of Cards at Netflix but I can`t watch without doing something with my hands. So coloring and watching hours of House of Cards today. Well – mostly listening anyway…

Hello longweekend

It has been a long day. Leaving home with a bus at 8.30 am, haircut, coffee, lots of waiting, more coffee, dinner with the family, more coffee and home at 8.30 pm. Sometime having a haircut takes time :)

The important thing is to prevent the fish to get sunburns. I do believe that sunburns was a problem last year :)

It is a growing family. Seems to me there is a new baby every year. That is a good thing.
