Kitchen Renovation - Days 4 and 5

 Photo from the Internet.

We are at the middle point of our project.

We appear to be in good hands. Our neighbour - who has been renovating for two years, and isn't always successful with her contracts - has already made a business request to our contractor while we were out.

The photo below is of myself, singing "How Dare You, He's Mine".

Photo also from the Internet.


  1. Hyvin näkyy edistyvän - remontti.
    Se on niitä viimeisä hommia mihin haluaisin ryhtyä.
    Nohh... ehkä sitten kun on se viimeinen pakko.
    Sanoisin - kyllä se siittä...
    Kuvat ainakin näyttävät hyviltä.
    Remontti vaatii vielä hieman trimmausta...!

  2. Hi, I have your blog on my bloglist now. I hope that's ok ? :) I can follow your renovation now, I think that it will be great.

    Thank you for your lovely comments at my blog !


  3. Oh god what a mess.
    The singer is really you? You do look sensational, so full of energy!

  4. I love your photos dear Olga,the last one made me laugh ... yes any house renovation is as risky as riding a bike on a tightrope. Actually the walls look good, your neighbour must be impressed if she is trying to steal your contractor. It is great to see you have not lost your sense of humour.
    xoxoxo ♡

  5. What a nasty neighbor. I agree with Dianne's comment. =)

    Love the humor on every post.

  6. Ольга, вы какие-то строительные монстры!

  7. The mid-point often feels like there is much more than half yet to do.
    Wishing you well and keep singing:)

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. False sexual harassment charges (men are now afraid to even talk to women in the office because all it takes is one woman to make up a false sexual harassment charge and then the man's career is finished)

    4. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    5. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    6. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    99.9 percent of American and western women are liars, hypocrities, and criminals, who support women committing crimes against men. Women refuse to condemn their fellow women who destroy men's lives. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

  11. Olga,
    I love that tightrope photo. Untill we see a result of renovation or construction, we feel like that・・・・・

  12. Hello: I wait and desire that the repairs of the home, they are already finished. I happened for slightly similar, and thought to become mad. Clear that now already finished, one enjoys the change. An embrace,
