It is really time for an update.
This morning, Feb 8, it was -7° after a night of snowfall. The weather since New Year’s Eve has so far been a jojo between extreme cold and full storm to severe thaw and now cold and snow again. I’ve been busy moving food kept outside in and out of freezers. Stupidly enough I decided that -15° was perfect for sorting my basement freezer, whereupon the temperature immediately rose 24° within hours …
So far I’ve spread salt and fed the birds

Any way, this is today’s assignment … I have finally resumed my kitchen painting after a month and top of this wall over the shelf is next. I’m a bit nervous about it. I’ve put it off for quite a while… but now there are no excuses. The shelf is removed, old wallpaper stripped, the area is covered with primer and the lengths are cut and ready. First one with a hole to fit.
It’s been at least 35 yrs since the last time I put up wallpaper … better have some coffee first.

It’s not like I’ve done nothing in the past month, but as for food I gave up and ordered an additional freezer for the basement. It’s clear that I cannot rely on the weather. So far I’ve discovered that I have food enough to feed a football team for at least a couple of weeks. Remains to get it sorted. The new freezer was quickly filled with what I had outside. For ex. X-mas ham in pieces.

sarahjelm OP ,
@sarahjelm@mastodon.social avatar

This basement space has not been this tidy in years. All old paint discarded of, gradually tools are moving downstairs.
That new freezer needs a board on top for a workbench and I’ve already found one + fitting material for legs in the garage.
But first things first. At the moment my dining table in the living room is filled with all things to go back onto that kitchen shelf.

I’d better mix some glue…

sarahjelm OP ,

Done! Took some 10 minutes and extra glue on the wall.
Let’s hope they don’t fall down by tomorrow ….
That wallpaper is called “skogsglänta” (forest glade). I’ve had my eyes on it for ages and after x-mas it was on sale with only 1 package of 11m left. And I did not even need that. I will finish painting the space below tonight.
Hang the shelf tomorrow👍🏻

I’m stripping last of the old wall paper today. We’ll see how far I get. So far it’s a huge mess.
There is a reason to start on this side of the room - electricity!
I need some moving and additional sources for things like micro, tiny freezer and whatever electric cooking and baking machines and I’m not allowed to do installations myself - for security and insurance reasons.
Walls have to be finished before I contact the electrician.

Mess on the floor

sarahjelm OP ,
@sarahjelm@mastodon.social avatar

There is no finish under here. First owners had cupboards on the wall.
It will take some putty before reasonably decent. With one space cleared that spray bottle with water and a bit of washing softener is waiting for next. Top of the wall is already done right after the ceiling was painted a few months ago

Someone more handy and strong might take down the shelves, but I’m neither & the heavy bench hangs on the consoles as well. I’d have to strip the lot

sarahjelm OP ,
@sarahjelm@mastodon.social avatar

Today is Fettisdagen, 13 of February. And this is how far I got stripping wallpaper Saturday before the spray bottle was empty & I had to make dinner.
Weather is not optional. Up and down, winter and spring every second day… -2° now after 24 hrs of snowing, then rain for 3 days☹️
The icy road is back and I’ll have to at least clear my way to the car and the bins + the bird feeder

I did bake buns for ‘semlor’ yesterday, but managed to burn the bottoms as the recipie online & all internet disappeared midday and was gone until the evening. Nothing in the news as media was occupied with parts of the amusement park in Gothenburg exploding in a fire …
But first things first …
Snow shoveling, feeding the birds, then painting and finish at least over the 2nd shelf so that I can empty the countertop
Poor birds. Not looking forward to this. Pretty, but no…

And done … that took a few days, but this is also the trickiest corner.
I’m almost ready for the electrician. Remains an area beside the stove.
Last of all will be sanding and hard waxing the countertop.

Outside most of the snow is now gone. And today it is +8° and rain. Up and down.

I’ve fetched more peanuts for the birds and squirrels from the garage. And got more apples delivered together with fresh vegetables and more thaw salt. Better take care of that …

Is it now? Dare one hope?
The ice on the lake is disappearing & I've moved the bird feeder down from the patio. Snowdrops and crocus are on the way up and the blue anemonens I got last fall seem to have survived. The birds are chirping and inspecting their birdhouses. The wren is back on the patio.

Time to clean up after storms and bad weather. The whole lawn is full of twigs…

Really lovely morning. Plus 5° already at 9.30. Out on the lake a gang of geese take a break in their spring travels & explore the open water. I’ll just finish my coffee and get out there. And it’s still only February so nothing is urgent when it comes to gardening. Plenty of time ahead.
Retirement has its advantages. I sure don’t envy the poor souls who passed before dawn in a hurry to catch the bus…

I’ve bought a new pot, red, beautiful and enameled. The old one I used to have was cracked. And my two cast Iron pots are not enameled.
So I ended up cleaning that cupboard & sorting pots and pans (not really what I planned to do today). And I have loads. Some from the bottom and back are really dirty & need a thorough clean.
I will have to decide which should go for keeping in the basement. For a single person the amount is ridicules & I’ve not even got to the lids on the top shelf 😱

I’m instaling my new pot by cooking a substantial amount of Bengal Chicken curry. My last batch was finished recently https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DssGI5u44wSguMGsqS1-VU-93IVZf19rn4SqyAsQS0M/edit
This is more like two chickens as I had 5 large frozen whole clubs.
Added a carrot and exchanged the yellow onion for red.

Bulk food. Ready to heat up

Best result would be a grown hen or roaster, better and more flavorful and I don’t like the more or less factory produced ones, @georgemonbiot. is right about that, but home raised are hard to find in the shops. You’d have to know someone with a chicken coup.

Already time for the cinnamon and cardemum pods…
