Very wet snow

I went to the beading class tonight. But when I went there, it was raining and the winds were strong. So it was no fun riding the bicycle. As I went home, there were lots of very wet snow. I had to walk with the bicycle, because the snow on the streets was really soft and slushy.

Got a new lamp in the ceiling today. πŸ™‚ There was something wrong with the previous lamp which I got from my sister’s mother-in-law when she died a few years ago. The light bulbs went one after the other, although they should last for a very long time. My brother-in-law said it was something from with the lamp.

So I went to town the other day (Wednesday) and got a similar lamp. It’s like a glass plate upside down with three light bulbs inside. My brother came to fasten it to the ceiling today when I was at the beading class. It was a bright light in my room when I got home. The last week I had only one of three light bulbs burning in the old lamp, so it was quite dark in the room.

It’s getting late, but I am no tired at all. I might watch an episode of Numb3rs on DVD.



The cat didn’t like the mixer when I made a smoothie. πŸ˜‰ He came into the kitchen and stared at me with a look that said: “What the hell are you doing?? That noise!”

It was the first time I tried the mixer which we have had for months now… And the first time I made a smoothie. Orange juice and a bag of frozen pieces of fruit. Very simple and quick (which I am sure the cat was happy for…) The taste? Well, it tasted like… fruits? I guess I can make it sometime again, but I am not a big fan of the texture.

It’s cold and windy outside, but luckily no rain today. There was enough rain yesterday. But there are some dark clouds on the sky, so may be there will be rain later.

Very rainy

Rain, rain, rain… Rain all day, pretty much, nonstop. Strong winds… No fun going home from work with the bicycle. 😦 I was wet and cold when I got home.

Oh well, a day off tomorrow. All the shops and libraries and many more places are closed tomorrow. Mum has a day off on Friday, so she is going to Sweden tomorrow morning. She wants the wind to stop at least, otherwise it will be a wavy boat trip across the sea.

No ice hockey today. The Lions traveled to Prague to fight against the Czech Republic tomorrow in the quarter final. It’s going to be a tough game… But I hope the referees are not as lousy as the ones in the previous game, against Russia. A Finnish player got 5 + 20 minutes for kneeing… Well, he didn’t use his knee, he bumped into to other player with his shoulder! Should have gotten 2 minutes, or nothing at all. Instead he was sent to the shower.

Anyway, it’s getting late. Better go to bed now.

Sunny but strong winds

It’s a sunny day! πŸ™‚ But the wind is strong. It felt a bit like spring in the air, because the sun felt a little warm in some places.

Mum will be home in a few hours. I am sure my cat will be very happy then! πŸ˜€ I think there will be a lot of meowing tonight!

Still haven’t listen to the song that Finland is going to compete with in the Eurovision Song Contest, but I don’t think it will succeed in the competition… 😦 Especially not when they are singing in Finnish.

Went to the flea market today and cleared out the table, took home all my things that had not been sold. I thought I would have to wait for the money a few days, because it said so on the information paper that I got. But I got the money today: 116 euros and 50 cents! πŸ˜€ The fee for the table was 24 euros if I don’t remember wrong, so I made a good profit. πŸ™‚

I will eat dinner now before unpacking the bags.

Then I might bake a cake after that. But I am not sure.

Easter bonfire

Easter bonfire

I usually go on Easter eve to watch one of the many Easter bonfires that they have in the area. This year was the first time they had one close to my home. It only took me about 10 minutes to go there with bicycle.

The wind was pretty strong by the shore, and the flames flew quite a bit. In the beginning it was a lot of thick white smoke (not very pleasant to get that in the face, so I had to move away from the wind). It also got quite hot when the flames were big.

I didn’t wait for the whole bonfire to burn down before going home.

The Finnish lion cubs are playing right now (think the game started 10 minutes ago). So I am going to watch the game now. Not sure who they are playing against.


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˜€


700 paper cranes!! πŸ˜€ It’s getting closer…

It seems to be snowing now and the wind is strong. So it’s not a very nice weather to be out in. But you shouldn’t be out. It’s 11.15 pm. Time to go to bed.

I have just watched the last episode of the season of Swedish Hollywood wives. So happy that the Montazamis continue next week with their new TV-show where they meet Swedish celebrities. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see that!
