hole in the wall


I didn't get a chance to do anything with the pumpkin over the weekend. It is sitting by the wall, and I occasionally use it as a stool. To stand on, as well as it to sit on. It is indeed a sturdy little sucker. Instead, Saturday was spent on home renovating. Exaggeration aside, it was spent on putting a hole in the wall. Michal has grand plans. The hole will be turned into a cupboard. With shelves and a door. I await with anticipation. It is desperately needed to store all the jars filled with pickles, fruit and whatnot. Winter is coming after all. The family is preparing us for hibernation. Latest count: 4 jars of wild cherries, 3 jars of pickles, 2 jars of stewed apples, 1 jar of mushrooms. See. This is how Poland survived before Tesco (ala Woolies). I just need to find a jar large enough for the pumpkin. I hear it pickles well in vinegar.

bloody genius! who else but you two crazy cats would decide that a storage solution does not necessarily need to be purchased from ikea (like i would!) but can instead be achieved by excavating the apartment! love ya work!

The pumpkin is proving to be so functional I just don't have the hear to chop it up.

As for the hole in the wall Edd, if the project comes to fruition I will bestow Michal with the Carpentry Badge of Honour. It's like life size Lego. Fun!
