Senior catwalk

vad gör man åt becksvarta eftermiddagar....kl är faktiskt bara 16!
 Bara katten spinner nöjt att vi samlas inomhus så tidigt.
Den äldre senioren har blivit med en gammal liten stegtrappa 
för att smidigt nå sitt vattenglas på köksbänken. Eget val....
För mig blir det åter linoljemålning i helgen. 
All grund och slipning är klar och det finns väl 
 ingen ursäkt längre. Ska bli skönt att bli
klar till Lucia och den årliga husfesten.

Believe it or not, 
these pictures are shot at 4 pm this November friday.
It's really a dark time of the year here in Stockholm.
 I still seem to forget about it every year, I look as surprised
as I did last year when I finally surrender to fact that we're up
for a couple of months with the very short daylight.

Kitty just had a little old stepladder placed by the
kitchen counter, to make it easier for him to get to
his glass with water. He refuses to have it served
on the floor nowadays. The little senior rules this
 household, always has and always will...we don't mind

Pipelines in a corner

taking care of leftovers have always fascinated me.
 so I decided on constructing a few racks for the showroom
 this was much easier that I ever expected and one rack came out
in the shape of a double for some of the samples, hangers and books
 I just need to paint them shelves....those brushes seem to be a part of my life

Twilight zone...

The fading daylight is fascinating in many ways and according to my camera
 the house shade of the lime wash paint today looked something of a newborn pig,
instead of the faded white/pinky color I worked so hard on when preparing it
and normally does. The air is pretty humid this time of the year and 
while lime wash breathes the natural pigment changes slightly all the time.
 Just a reflection as I decided to take som pictures late afternoon
and yes we have turned the clocks back for wintertime!
Today at 2pm we began bringing in the bumper harvest of our
winter apples. We are glad the tree survived last year's construction 
chaos as we extended the kitchen with the bay window.
 Seriously I don't know what to do with all the fruit,
so there will be plenty for all the birds that stay the winter.
They just have to watch out for the the little hunter,
who sits put inside by the bay window in order
to make his moves out the cat-flap.
