So fun to watch Heikki Kovalainen in the Lotus car this weekend! πŸ˜€ He is doing a great job! It is not easy to jump into a team and perform so well with such a short notice. He got the call to come to Lotus on Tuesday night and he has had to learn a lot of new things in just a few days. πŸ™‚ P8 tomorrow on the starting grid. And Valtteri Bottas P9! πŸ˜€ But I think Bottas will fall down to P11 – P14 in the GP. It’s one thing to be strong in the qualifying, a different thing to be strong in the race. And I don’t think Williams has the car yet to get some points. They only have Maldonado’s one point so far. Looking forward to the race tomorrow! πŸ™‚ Red Bull is of course in a different league… And it’s not difficult to guess who’s gonna win tomorrow.

Finished a cross stitched bookmark while I watched the qualifying. πŸ™‚ The bookmark shows three sheep and there’s some butterflies and pink flowers as well. Pretty cute. πŸ™‚

Finished reading Pure, by Julianna Baggott. Very good book! Also started on the second book in the trilogy, Fuse. I hope it is just as good.

The wind is pretty strong right now. But apparently it’s getting worse. Around 6 am to 8 am it’s supposed to be the strongest winds in this area, then it will move somewhere else. The electric company has warned that the electricity might be cut off. But usually things doesn’t turn out as bad as it has been predicted in the newspapers and tabloids. But, we’ll see.

Almost midnight. The cat is snoring on my couch. He really likes the blanket that I put there, so he can rest his head on it. πŸ˜€


Heikki Kovalainen

The end of the Formula one season suddenly turned much more interesting. πŸ™‚ Heikki Kovalainen will replace Kimi RΓ€ikkΓΆnen for the last two races! πŸ˜€ Looking forward to that!

Kimi will be hospitalized tomorrow (or may be he is already in the hospital). But at least tomorrow he will have that back surgery. 😦 Oh well, at least he is getting it fixed so he can focus on returning to Formula one next season. πŸ™‚

Pretty sunny today. Went to the library in the afternoon.

Bought some green yarn and started crocheting an amigurumi. Will post a picture of it when it’s done.

Alec came here for a couple of hours in the afternoon. He really has started talking a lot! πŸ™‚ And you understand most of what he is saying.

Watched Efterlyst on TV tonight.Β 

Almost midnight so I need to sleep now.

Cross stitching

Two of the three cross stitching kits I got the other day are done! πŸ˜€ Three small pictures with Santas and one little wintery scene. I just need to frame them.

Now I’ve begun on the third kit. It’s a table cloth, so it’s going to take several weeks to stitch… So far all I have done is a little heart in the middle. πŸ™‚ A LOT more to stitch on the table cloth. πŸ˜‰

Nothing interesting on TV tonight. May be I’ll watch some DVD. Don’t really want to go to bed already.

Mum and the Swedish man left the house today. They went to a little town in the north of Finland. Suomussalmi, home of Finnish F1 driver (well, nowadays test driver) Heikki Kovalainen! πŸ˜€ The Swedish man is from that town and they have a summer cottage there. Wonder if they will meet any reindeers on the streets…

Mum is “running away” from her 60th birthday, which is tomorrow. She doesn’t want to celebrate it. They will come back from Suomussalmi on Thursday next week.
