The missing sun is there

No changes . The missing sun appeared for a moment and that's that . Old peoples used to call these days " pirtti ilmat " , stey home days .

Winter wonderland

My husband played the road to back part of our farmland .

This I call winter vacation . Piles of snow on top of the machine and collected woods .




Grey day again . I went for a walk to the woods to feel the lonelynes and hear the silence .

Summer dream --- Kesäunelma

Look , go to beah ... leave the boat ...
Katso , aja rantaan... jätä vene ...
Ooh , here is our dear summerhouse . Go in , have a seat .... feel homelike .....
Ooh , täällä on meidän rakas mökkimme. Mene sisälle , istumaan ... käy taloksi...


Sauna is waiting for you , hot and cozy . Toss some water to the rocs on top of the fireplace , ( kiuas ) warm steam starts fondling your skin . You feel going out to space .... Ordinary life is so far away .... Feel free , fresh , tired , strong ....
Sauna odottaa Sinua , kuumana ja mukavana . Heitä vettä kiukaalle , lämmin höyry alkaa hyväillä ihoasi . Tunnet liitäväsi avaruuteen ... Arkielämä on niin kaukana ... Tunne olevasi vapaa , raikkas , väsynyt , vahva .....

After that you go to swim in the lake , come back , have some cool drink . Sit down on the veranda ... Do everything again and again . Get tired .....
Tämän jälkeen mene uimaan järveen , tule takaisin , nauti kylmää juotavaa . Istu kuistille . Tee kaikki tämä uudelleen ja uudelleen . Tunne väsymystä ...

Follow the narrow path to the shed , under the blooming rowan .
Seuraa kapeaa polkua aittaan , kukkivan pihlajan alla .

Go to sleep between cool sheets ..... dream ....
Mene nukkumaan viileiden lakanoiden väliin .... uneksi ....

Icy play


Snow and frost made this picture on the backdoor of our ( now empty ) barn . Tell me what you see in it !

Go out , and open your eyes and free your magination . You'll see the wonders of nature .

My New Year Speach

I was young in 1950s and never ever dreamed I'll live in 2009 nor I'll be able to think enything .

When we are young we think everybody over 30 is old and die soon .

Now I'm living full life and every day brings different goods to me .


World is different now , everything is changed everywhere , feels like evil take hold of everything . How this happened , how we let it happen ?


I believe WE SURVIVE . We'll learn to live in this defferent " melting pot " .


In 1960s there was a time we thought we muts be free . We got too free . There must have some rules . Everything is in our own hands . If there is enough good people and they keep doing good things we can save a lot . My husband use to say : " If you are down , the only thing to do is , GET UP .


Here in Finland we are still in good hands , but who knows . Our economy is in good balans and we are not invalved eny war . I was born in 1940 and it was second world war time . Whole country was in the midle of the war . But we survived .


KEEP HOPING .

" DON'T SPILT TE MILK " .
