pouches, teeth and oven…

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

 

 

 

First of all,

I’m sorry not visiting your blogs but last couple of weeks have been

‘difficult’.

 

My diverticulosis activated again but I started antibiotics on Tuesday.

 

My dental project has began – now I have six temporary teeth

on upper jaw…

sitting on that chair 2,5 hrs wasn’t that bad. My gums were totally numb,

so no pain.

 

Our oven said ‘bye bye’, started to smoke. Today we got new one working.

 

Isn’t all this enough for a couple of weeks? 🙄

 

 

These are for

colorful August…

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

 

Hi everyone!

 

Oh it’s been RAINY! and windy…

Rain and hard wind are good reasons to be inside

and

get up and do some exercise.

Yes. I started this Monday…some Tai Chi, Pilates,

using a foam roller (oh that’s hard but feels gooood!)

and just stretching…

Look up and get an inspiration to paint.

That’s how this watercolor painting started…for

One day it was sunny enough and I shot Rowan in our garden.

Nice looking but hard wind blows berries/fruits all over our wooden terrace.

 

oh well, all kinds of stuff is coming down: rain, snow, pollen, needles…

 

 

What’s coming down in your garden/neighborhood? 🙂

 

 

I’ll have a blogging/holiday break –

see you again in September!

 

Enjoy rest of this August!

 

 

sanded and painted

Friday, June 10th, 2016

 

Hi everyone!

 

I gave up sanding the sauna window frames. We’ll do it later or not…

But I sanded one of four old stools.

Icky brown is almost gone,

it gives  interesting surface with transparent pearl white paint.

Here it’s only partly painted. I’ll show it next weekend when two coats done…

 

 

I found leftover flower painting to show you…

Our Easter time was busy – we changed our bedroom to the garden side and

our ‘office’ to the other side.

 

I’m still organizing all that stuff…

This is how I felt yesterday 🙂

The other day I visited Tallinn, Estonia – just for a day.

 

I bought some medicine and cosmetics plus some alcohol – cheaper than in Finland…
