Amazing autumn!

It’s been long, sunny and not too cold.

But leaves are tired and raking has been my daily routine…

Right now it’s raining, still dark…

Shorter days and rain, not nice but

colors keep up good spirit (with good lights).

it’s good to be back!!!

 

 

Our move from Helsinki to Espoo

map from Helsinki to Espoo, Finland

was hard work –

we had and still have too much stuff!

BUT we’re happy here – we have a small house with a huge terrace and

a small sauna and storage building.

It takes less than 30 minutes by buss from here to Helsinki city centre, not bad.

BLOGGING BREAK –

I’LL BE BACK IN SEPTEMBER!

 

 

 

we're moving by BLOGitse

 

We’ll move from a flat in Helsinki, Finland to a small house in Espoo

(a city next to Helsinki,

26 mins by bus to Helsinki city center).

We wanted to have our own backyard,

a private place to bbq, sunbathe… just be.

 

 

Have a great end of this summer!

Paint Party Friday

 

brush sketch by BLOGitse

 

I try to sketch, just relax and let it go…

Not easy because I’m a control freak but this kind of painting feels really good!

 

 

 

 

We have thousands of international visitors in Helsinki right now.

On Thursday I was watching on television how joy and happiness

can glue people together – doing the show and watching it on tv.

I felt so good listening ‘be there’ and see people moving and

enjoying! That was (is) COOL!

 

Thank you  ‘The World Gymnaestrada 2015 Helsinki’

you moved me (too)!
