I'm waiting for strawberry season! But until then, imported ones are good enough.

For breakfast: Porridge with strawberries and organic vanilla. So good that I'm going to eat it tomorrow morning again:)

Poor Mr. Beethoven.. I just had to make this abrupt contrast, haha.

Day off

Today was my Grandmother's birthday, hooray for her! She had received flowers from a "secret" admirer..;)
Her tired cat Millan had some red paint on her paws. That's because she earlier had crawled into a hole that squirrels have done under the roof of our sumercottage. Sneaky. But luckily no squirrels live there anymore.

It's been a really great day actually. I even managed to clean up the apartment a little bit AND been to a fleamarket. Found, among other things, more candle holders for my little collection.

Rasmus went to Umeå for a week, he's participating (again) in another art project. He took the "better" camera with him, so I have to get used to the old one again..what a difference!

I'm so in love with my trenchcoat I bought at Weekday! It looks much better in person..
Time to throw out the easter willows..but at least they give a little colour to this post;)

One more day off tomorrow, lovely. They promise nice weather so I'm hoping for a picnic in the park..

How was your weekend?

24h in Helsinki

Yesterday evening in Helsinki was all good. When we arrived we went to Gallery Sinnes new location. It's HUGE and it's going to be the BEST gallery in Helsinki! It actually used to be an old sexshop there before.
Rasmus is participating in a groupshow there, opening on Wednesday next week. It's also the opening of the new gallery space. Ooooh I really wish I could be there..

Anyway, after I had seen the gallery I left Rasmus and the others there and went to see my friend Tuuli and her dog Taika* the cute half Indian straydog.
We walked the streets in her neighbourhoods and went to her home for some food and sparkling wine.

*We also found out yesterday that Taika loves to "sing" along when somebody plays the harmonica. So funny.

Easter holidays. That means Friday - Monday are free days! At least for me it is.
Tomorrow I'm off to Helsinki, back already on Saturday. Then I'm going to see a lot of friends, hopefully.

Happy Easter!

Hi again

I just came home from the opening of my school time friends exhibition at Osthrobothnian Museum. Good atmosphere and great works. If you're in town you should go see it!
I only took a few pictures and most of them got blurry. My photos often tend to get blurry when I take pictures at openings or other events. There's many other things to put attention to then than taking good pictures:)

Walking and exploring

It was a sunny morning and I decided to go for a walk. Then of course the sun disappeared when I went out. But exploring the nature and surroundings nearby town can be interesting anyway.
I also met my sister who's in town for a few weeks:)
Later I got Dumpling cravings and made some. Feels like a good end of the week.

But sometimes a good day can't be perfect,
and it's very sad and scary that a extreme right xenophobic party got many votes so far in the elections going on right now here in Finland. Makes me so upset..

My new shoes I had ordered finally arrived, and I'm very happy with my purchase. Think I'm going to try the boots today, the clogs can wait for a couple of weeks more!

+ Somebody who woke up from his nap while I was photographing the shoes..

Today was the last day of my pedagogy course..Soon it's time for dinner and think I deserve a glass of wine:)

We've been building sculptures out of toothpicks and peas at the kindergarten, think I liked it more than the kids:) Now I have big plans on making something BIG.
The snow is melting quickly, and now you see bare ground again, and everything that's been hiding under the snow begins to show.

Happy Friday!

Stressful days

Mixed pictures from the past week. I haven't had time for blogging again..been extremely busy and tired when I come home after work.
Tomorrow I'm going to take a new bloodtest concerning my thyroid. I hope I can start taking medicine again! So that I finally can feel better.
My level is not much under the normal reference range-even I have quite strong symptoms that gets worse when I'm stressed. I wrote something about my thyroid problems last summer. I'm a little discreet with this kind of stuff:)

Well, otherwise everything's fine and it's definitely SPRING!
