Well, Finland at its best would be in the middle of a snow filled winter. The more the better. Last winter was magical, I hope for another winter like that.
But if I have to choose in the summer, it will always be beaches and red cliffs. I’ve always been addicted to nature but it keeps getting worse. I don’t know who’s to thank? My mother who spent amounts of money on books about nature for me (I can now see a theme in my childhood books and they are sure to thank for waking up my curiosity about nature and animals), or myself for joining the scouts as 5 years younger than anyone else there, or just Finnish nature that is almost a joke compared to other countries.
Anyway, this noon we went to have a lunch picnic at some cliffs we go and explore every year but haven’t had the time to visit yet this year.
Ruth hanging in there as usual. She doesn’t love being in the sling anymore and wants to be let down after a while but it’s nice as long as she finds it comfortable there.
Let me present to you Tisskärssand. The very place I’ve taken to me special persons to, after being taken here by a friend of mine many years ago.
We need to have lunch here one more time before leaving Vexala! Next time I want to make a warm lunch.
Some stone picking (😩) while walking around enjoying the view of a roaring sea. I don’t know just hoooow many little stones and seashells and feathers and cones we have in the car, in empty bottles and wrapped in papers. I imagine that I’m going to put them on a nice shelf to look at as soon as the kids rooms are ready. That means they’ll have to wait in their bottles and papers for a couple of years.
We went grocery shopping after lunch and spontaneously went to a museum after that. I’m so happy with how this day turned out, even if I don’t have any energy left today at all. I feel like going to sleep but perhaps I’m making myself a cappuccino and eat some chocolate. After all, there might be something to celebrate. After weeks of anxiety over where we’re going to live, what is going to happen, we might have a solution. I’ll write about it when I know for sure. Until then I keep praying and hoping!
