A bad quality poem inspired by weather

A bad quality poem inspired by weather

it’s snowin’ in my dreams it’s snowin’ in the world snow is plain white paper for a story to be told

Snow’s random memory keeps a footprint record A hare ran across the field And a hungry fox came in second

The winner was not fast enough, got caught on the run and fell […]

Breathing in some icy cold air feels so refreshing.

This is a very sad summer

This is a very sad summer

In some instances, even frightening.

First, the heat. Rockperry’s last year in Vaasa. Then, Asta and Veera storms. Lahja(“gift”)-storm expected to come in full force next week, yesterday night’s thunder was just a joke compared to what’s in the forecast. Forest fires in Russia, smoke over Moscow and now spreading also across Eastern Finland. […]

We do not need to go to the Zoo

Waiting for Mr. Goose

No, it’s not St. Martin’s Day or anything, we just went to Turku to do some bureaucracy and bought a gorgeous 4.5 kilo frozen goose at a local market.

While we were driving back in +32C heat it went from icy cold to cool, so I kept it in marinade overnight and finally cooked […]
