Are You Laughing at Me.???

I can't help but smile back at this pig.  I been grumpy today.  A smile has not crossed my face until I saw this guy. I am working on a kitchen design that would be great if they didn't need a fridge or could do with a European size one.  We tried to move a wall, but it is a 100 year old apartment and needs a support beam upstairs and below, plus a huge cast iron down pipe right in the middle.  When an Engineer and Architect are iffy, and you are responsible for all damage to other units incurred, you do the wise thing and either move, or work within the walls.

I hate walls.  How great it would be to add the walls after.  Anyway, so the elusive fridge placement, slow software, and horribly cold (minus 14Celcius) weather has made me a tad huffy.  Mr. Raz just bought me a big slice of Baklava dripping in honey.  So, IF I solve my puzzle, I get to eat it.

My sister shot this pig at Bronte Creek Park.  A park within a big suburb.
He is so happy to see her, he is smiling.
She walks her dog here daily and the pigs rush out to greet her and her bag of apples, carrots or whatever.
By SHOT it,
I mean with her camera.

  1. I want one...pig I mean!
    sorry about your wall/fridge/layout issues.
    Yes...I'm all for no walls! I want my next home to be a huge empty warehouse/loft-ish space...just space!

  2. Eat it before you solve your puzzle as the sugar is fuel at least for a moment. It sounds like a joyless venture to me until you get to the pretty bits. I wish I could send you my warm sun...it was 57 degrees here and I am thrilled with that. First sun in 20 days. ♥O

  4. My old boyfriend's parents built a house in the 1950's that had a refrigerator that looked like wall cabinets over a counter top. Don't they make those anymore?

    Love me some Baklava too! Smiling at the pink pig. It's nice of your sis to treat him to apples during this freezing winter!~Ames

  7. It is one thing to sit and worry about your own home and it's layout. It is an entirely different world to worry about pleasing a client and it's closest inhabitants....My heart groans for you dilema.

    I hope you can figure this one out with as little damage as possible to the other units.

    Did you see Sarah 101? UGH. was not impressed with the green cabinet doors, what is she thinking?

  11. I feel your pain. I live in a log home my husband began 35 years ago while he was in college. We continually try to find a way to replace a ladder with real steps around a supporting beam. Good luck with your kitchen design issues.

  17. Raz, the thing about the comments is you need it to make friends, how would I have met you? I love your blog. If I could not comment who would I tell my excitement too?

  19. I love Bronte Creek Park - it doesn't even feel like you're in the 'burbs! You had me worried that poor little piggie met his demise! Of course if you were talking to my step father-in-law, he would have taken that literally (he hunts deer - can you imagine???) Hope you've been able to work out a plan :)

  23. I hate walls too! I live in a three level townhouse, and I want to knock out a few walls, but I am consciously aware that if I take them out, I might end up in a pile of rubble, which is not really the end result I'm hoping for. It is terribly frustrating to not be able to do what you want...But I have seen your creative genius at work and you will come up with a solution! Take a break and eat the Baklava...look at a few more photos that make you laugh, and you'll figure this out. (Maybe your clients can share the fridge with the neighbours... :-)
