a gentleman

Friday, March 10th, 2017


This week has been a dentist week –

we made a plan for crowns etc.

Feeling a bit nervous, blue, I haven’t had inspiration

to paint nor drawing.

But I found this gentleman I made in January.

entry this week

After two weeks we’ll escape to France for a week

to meet family members from different parts of the planet…

We rent a huge house with a pool, outdoor kitchen etc.

Can’t wait to relax and enjoy summer over there!

(Here at home our renovation project continues now outside;

terrace enlargement,

we built a small shed for garden tools etc. that needs painting plus

this and that small things.)



How’s your life???



Have a relaxing weekend!



Mukavaa juhannusta! Happy midsummer!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016


Finnish midsummer ‘juhannus’ is like a mega sauna party!


People escape to summer houses, cottages, tents…

People enjoy sauna, swimming in cold waters, barbecue, drinks, get drunk…


We are boring.

We stay at home.


We have everything here, enough good food and drinks –

sauna is not ready but we enjoy just to relax, be.

I’m still organizing all that stuff…

This is how I felt yesterday 🙂
