And Dad said, Let there be light: and there was light in a trusty old department store. And Minna saw the light, that it was good.

Ceiling lamps in the living-room

And Minna said, let there be curtains in the living-room, and let them divide the lights from the lights. And Minna bought the curtains, and they divided the lights which were outside from the lights which were inside: and it was so.


And on the third day of August Minna ended her work which she had made; and she rested on the Sunday from all her work which she had made.


Not before making the resting place of course.

Enough with the kitchen drawers!

As much as I love living by myself, I’m finding it very difficult to get used to living in an apartment building.

For at least two months after moving in, people were drilling a lot. I’m pretty sure it was the same people because the drilling sounded the same every time. I wonder if they have any room left on their walls…

The drilling has got rarer but what will never go away is the sound of my neighbour’s kitchen drawers. The drawers are loud, I know because mine are too. Unfortunately, their kitchen is on the other side of my bedroom wall. And they are early birds — even on weekends. I’m not because I want to stay up late at least once or twice a week.

I can also hear the blender and the beating or chopping, but the drawers are the worst. They’re driving me absolutely bonkers.
