Love you Mum!

11.05.2014 Mother's day went by so fast... My hope of being in good condition of my health stayed just a dream. But, if this year I couldn't give my mom a day off from home duties and such, hopefully next year I can (and earlier if possible).

Never the less, we had a nice light and delicious lunch and later on my aunt and the sister of my mom came for a visit with her cat Puuma (the name  means a cougar in Finnish). The reason for bringing he cat was to get him vaccinated as my dear friend who is a vet came for a home visit. She vaccinated 1 dog and 4 cats. LOL. Yes, we have a bit of a zoo here, but it is fun to watch and actually I have 2 dogs and not just one. Now, you can see why I wanted to give my mom a day off as she has her hands full with the home duties and with my dogs... 

Today I am about to make rosewater from the mother's day roses, which you can see in the picture above. I have never done this before and I know there is several ways to do it. I'm going to try the steeping method. I found the recipe from a site called Natures home spa and there is a lot of interesting and fun recipes for making your own cleansing and purifying products.

Past couple days...

 I'm so sorry for not being able to write here. I had an awful migraine for the past couple days and I just couldn't even open my lap top never the less write anything. But I'm back in business now, so to speak.

 Today the sun is shining, which is quite unexpected as today is May day and also called Walpurgis night. Usually this day, when people want to begin the summertime, grill first barbeque ribs outside in their patio, celebrate outside and so on, the weather is cold and rainy. This sunshine is pure bliss for those who want to go and see our beautiful statue of Havis Amanda, situated next to the market square in Helsinki, getting the matriculation cap on at Before this the student association in order will wash the statue and after that they will put the cap on. Putting the cap on is a tradition that has begun since midnight 1909, when the statue was being dressed with the cap without permission. It took till 1951 when the public authority gave in for the people and made the tradition legit. So, as the May day is a day for all "white caps" but most of all it is a peoples day for celebration a national one.

 That's for the history lesson. You should see and/or experiment to know what I am talking about. Unfortunately I am not able to share any picture of this event as I am unable to go to the city center. Why? Maybe I shall tell you all about it a little later, for now I can only say that I am having a bit of a problem with my health... If I am lucky, I can share some pictures of my friends who have gone to see what's happening in the city. :) I'm going to spent some quality time with my best friend who I haven't seen for a while. I made some raspberry-banana pancake...

Brought by my dear friend!
She knows the flowers I love and the perfect colors..
BIG thanx and warm hugs, love ya!

Beautiful morning full of sunshine..

 I just had a quite long walk with my dogs and my mother. As it is Saturday and the weather was just perfect, I thought we could make a bit longer walk than normally on the weekdays and it turner out to be a great decision. It was so beautiful as the beam of light was glowing on the leafs of the trees and the bushes. Grass is getting more and more green, here and there are these spring flowers rising up like tulips and wood anemone and some others that I do not identify.

First red tulips in the nearby park.

 God I just love springtime. After a long period of cold weather and snow it is so refreshing to hear birds singing and seeing the nature waking up. I will put some pictures here to show just how beautiful it is here. Now, I shall enjoy my breakfast oatmeal with some berries... Talk to you soon!

I did it, I really did it!

 For some time now, I have been dreaming about putting up a blog and now I actually did it. My goal or should I say, my vision, is to write about my life and my dreams, my projects that are on-going or still on the waiting list. I also want to write about things that happen in this world, things that move me, in a good and a bad way.

 Nevertheless I want to keep this blog open minded, positive, realistic and straight up even that there will be days when nothing seems to go the right way and I'll probably end up pulling my hair instead of feeling inspired. Please, bare with me as this is a journey to my thoughts instead of an assignment or duty to accomplish.
