Maintenance

(still wet)

The oak dining table desperately needed some care.

The wood isn't protected with any varnish, oil or wax.
That's why I soap it regularly to get rid of the stains with a
white pigmented Woca soap because I don't like yellowish wood.


I just love the pale colour and the silky touch of the oak wooden table...

New Belfast Sink


After almost 2 years, we finally replaced our damaged Belfast sink.
The damage, a big crack, was caused by a stupid fitter who
emptied our Quooker tank to be able to do some maintenance.
Seven liters of boiling water poured on a stone cold porcelain sink.
Followed by some cold water after the reservoir was completely empty.
The sink just couldn't handle the thermal shock and cracked...


So, after doing some research, I found and bought a similar new porcelain sink.
The kenderman and me installed the new Belfast sink today.
We managed to fit it eventually... with the help of some candle wax ☺︎


Perhaps you are planning some DIY for the weekend.
Whatever the weather.... enjoy the weekend!

Decay


I can't help feeling sorry for the loss of this beautiful squirrel.
I just love red squirrels and I treasure the few encounters. 
You could easily be fooled and assume this squirrel is only sleeping...
but I can assure you this one won't wake up again.

- if you Fear, your Heart will decay  -
quote by  L V Hall

In autumn everything seems to sink into decay, it seems to be the season of melancholy.
 I don't know why but I love melancholy, the smell of autumn and the fading sunlight.

I hope you'll be able to enjoy the weekend!
