Animal Wednesday / Koekie

(Click to enlarge and spot the animal on Wednesday :))

The opening to my corridor of what is to be my new toilet.
In the corridor you can spot Koekie.
No need to tell you this renovation is hard on the animals. But just a few weeks more and all will be over again.
I must say I still like the progress and so far all I could do was just clean every day.
But next week I expect to have lots to do. Cleaning, painting and re-installing. 

And........ I received this award from my best friend Emily!!!!!
Thank you dear. 
I am supposed to nominate one tough chick......but eh I have a few!
Well I know my friend Emily doesn't stick to the rules , so why should I?!

I would love to nominate all my blog friends because they are all special and tough at the right moment, but I would like to highlight just a few whom stand out being tough and brave at this moment:

First of all: Marja, who just had the same operation I had November last year and she is one tough chick! I never hear her complain and she is always worrying more about others than herself!
Please visit her blog and give her your get well wishes :)

2nd: Lo. She found a job and is working her pretty a.. off and doing the best she can. I am very proud of her!!!

3rd: Robin , who has an interview next week and who I admire for staying sweet and positive as always. I hope she gets the job next week!

4th: KJ, for being the best grandma and friend! And for being able to deal with my friend Emily!

5th: Doris, my sweet friend from GA, who takes care of a bunch of stray cats and has to cope with a lot of ignorant people. They killed one of her beloved cats and spread terror in her neighborhood.
She is sure one courageous lady!

Happy Animal Wednesday ♥

    Your choices are perfect for tough.


  3. thank you for the award, marianne. it is my honor to be your friend and to know you are mine. xoxo

    you are being understated about the dust and mess, aren't you? i know what all that ripping apart does to a peaceful household. the animals must be hmmmpf-ing by now. here's wishing you godspeed.

    ps. emily says she will write soon and she is thrilled you are sharing her award. ♥

  4. I haven't been around much lately but have been following your renovations on FB. It will be so wonderful when it is all done! I'm happy for you that you get to remodel and make your home the way you want it. HAW (even though it is now Thursday!)

  5. Been missing lately but see that you are renovating, difficult to go through but soooo enjoyable when it is complete. Congrats on your award!!!!! Safe travels!

  7. sorry the animals are unhappy, they can't be reasoned with poor things. i think renovations are such a blessing, those that are lucky enough to afford them and the awesome results you get. all good!
