Day 249: Thumbs up!

In Finland we say "Thumbs up!" when people in English speaking countries are saying "Cross your fingers!" These thumbs belong to mittens I knitted for my youngest daughter for Valentine Day. I will send these to her and there is secret inside these two thumbs. Let's see whether she find the secret immediately or will it take time. If it takes time - then she don't like these.

Day 248: Fire!

This morning there was stable in our neighbor's yard. But not anymore. Afterwards we read on local paper that fire department was practicing and after all hard practice they let it burn down. And reason why I don't have any photos of burning barn -we were not at home at that time.

Day 247: Oh no - more snow!

People around me are complaining "so much snow, too much plowing", but then there are these positive ones saying "yes, more snow - I go skiing as soon as possible". Great that people are different. I like snow.

Today I was travelling by bus from Helsinki to Naantali and I have to say that I was little bit worried how it will go since it was snowing and from time to time quite heavily. And as usual - traffic was quite messy. But luckily bus driver was guy who didn't try to drive according time schedule - instead he drove very carefully in this awful weather. Points for him.

Day 246: Success!

Today we celebrated me and four of my colleagues successfully passing certification exam of Professional Scrum Master. Also our trainer Lare Lekman was invited as well as members of neighbor teams. It was great moment. And the best part was when member of other team said: damn - you are good at celebrating successes. Yes indeed - we are. And we success so often...

Day 245: What a whether!

I left office early - I was not feeling well - symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux. It just had started to snow and it was also quite windy. Lucky me that it takes only about 10 minutes to walk from office to home. To walk out there any more than absolutely must - really.

Day 244: 26!

I have been little lazy with postcrossing lately. But today I was not: I wrote 26 postcard. You have to remember that I have two profiles: soikka in Naantali and soikkis in Helsinki. Tomorrow I have to go and buy some new cards and stamps.

Day 243: Fill the gap!

I love Kakuro. It is more interesting than Sudoku. You have to calculate - for me that means that I have to use my brains. (And I am not saying that you could do Sudoku without brains.) My father having Alzheimer is reason and motivation for me to challange my brains daily basis.

Day 242: Sun is shining!

Today sun was shining at least here in Naantali. Notice the footprints in the teracce - they are my husband's. He has not been dancing there - he checked whether there is still something to eat for birds. Today we saw black bird in our teracce but I didn't have my camera ready.

Day 241: Banana!

I am like a monkey. I love bananas! Almost like diet food - or...

Day 240: To be or not to be bored!

Look! This is my husband looking very boring. I have just arrived home after spending several days in Helsinki. Or is he like this because I play with my new toy and try all different features of that new camera. That is, not spending time with him.
