People in Denial

People in Denial

 

The main problem with freedom is that the more freedom you grab, the greater survival skills it demands from you.

Vice versa, the more help & support you get from the outside world , the less freedom you can keep.

You cannot ask for both freedom and support at the same time. Accepting […]

Did she say that about me?… found via FB

Tatyana Droubich

I am an amicable person. I hate confrontation and ambiguous contexts. For me, it is simpler to tell things as they are all at once. It seems to me that femmes fatales do not act this way. Being sly, playing, plotting – no thanks. There’s no bravado here. I rather confess […]

Suomen kesä 2012

However it has not been snowing either. Positive thinking yeah 😀

To be honest, this is MY kind of weather, lov’ it.

 

 

A-la Provence or what it may be – new kitchen curtain

A-la Provence or what it may be - new kitchen curtain

It’s so retro and so very village.

Farmhouse

 

Actually, there’s not much choice between styles when you try to cozy up a 1980s farmhouse kitchen. Metal or glass would have ruined the harmony here, with those wooden floors, wooden ceiling, rustical kitchen cupboards etc.

You either start from zero point […]

Happiness, here and now

Happiness, here and now

We’re living through the time of strain.

Too much noise, too much information, too many faces, too many rules and exclusions… by far. Nor even time to think which of this abundance you really need if any.

Sometimes it feels like the energy is going to cut off this very moment and the reality […]

That’s a good one

And just think: I got this in an automatic mail message following a winning bid at Huuto.net – next to seller’s bank account number and all.

Mystistä.

I’m bäck!

It looks rather like it has had botox. Allright… it is frozen 😀

I bought it in Niilin poika the other day. Will stuff YGD with apples and herbs from the garden and grill it in the oven.

Norway calling

Norway calling

First, grieving, anger, and fear came in. Then, questions. A lot of them.

How many shooters were there in total? Killing over 50 people ALONE is an action movie superman’s task, and the guy was not even a seal/commando.

Why the killer was allowed so much time to act? The media are full of […]

Got a new toy

Got a new toy

Everything is mini- nowadays. First we got a mini-laptop, the latest buy is a mini-sewing machine. The big version is actually far TOO big and would demand a separate working table while this one can be kept in the cupboard someplace and taken out prior to sewing.

Mini sewing machine

And I’ve already […]

A flu and desktop breakdown at the very end of 2010 is a beautiful combination 😀 Hope 2011 is better.

… is there any kind of big day? Yes, probably the biggest one after Xmas. The Day of Tax Returns 😀 Everybody in Finland gets his or her extra tax payments back and goes to Linna to celebrate it with the President.

Kidding.

Pretty witches from Indica wish you a good loooong weekend.

What counts

What counts

The news headlines talk about a vast fire in Tampere center. Three people died. The story is a sad one, however what is good here is that everybody in Finland is talking and is worried about it. Compared to countries where tens or hundreds of human beings perish every week and no one really […]

Raising children in the 21st century not a piece of cake

Raising children in the 21st century not a piece of cake

Have been thinking about it for awhile…

When you leave the hospital with your newborn they tell you, “enjoy your baby”, you simply do not imagine you won’t be given an opportunity to enjoy, at least the first year.

The question is not about the baby herself. Basic care is as simple as ABC’s […]
