Blogging again and hopefully a smooth come back

November 22, 2011

Helsinki from the bird observation tower

I don´t even know how to start this again…

Let´s see… Has it been 4 months since last post? We are almost in the end of November!! Gosh, this year is definitely going too fast…

Some of you already know we sold our old apartment and moved to a new one in the end of Summer. Moving was a total madness, the place is bigger but feels there´s not enough space for all our stuff… and the furnishing and decor are still half done :P

After a short summer vacation (bothered immensely by our moving) my Luonnonvoima started pre-school. That meant… changes in our daily routine and schedules. Also, no need to make bentos: sadly (or… luckily?) LV gets her meals at her day care place.

Anyways, I want to keep making bentos :)! I might not be offering them so often, but the idea of giving my daughters a fun, nutritious and balanced meal can’t be easily forgotten right? ^^

I planned to make a come back to my blog on October. Unfortunately we fell ill and could only spend time fighting off a nasty cold that seemed to last forever. Cough and sore throat coming and going… husband got really sick, followed by my two daughters and I myself. Argh, more than a month. I still have a sore throat and very low energy, guess I am still recovering from this nightmarish times.

Kärpässieni - Amanita mushroom

But here I am! Christmas is coming… I had some ideas in mind for the traditional crafts I try to do every year… I really hope I can execute them and show to you guys in the next blog posts!


Have a great week friends!

Bird observation tower

PS: The pictures in this post were taken in early September at a park located very near our new home. The park, called “Arboretum”, is a forest research area founded by the Helsinki University, situated very close to the “Old City Bay” (Vanhankaupunginlahti). The whole area is a nature reserve and you can go there for a walk, go biking, watch birds (there are two towers for observation), flora or just relax. It is a really cool place to be in the craziness of the city :).

    What a beautiful park! If it were nearby to me, I would be spending every single day there. Did you notice the last photo looks like you are pointing with a fairy wand (or maybe a light saber)?

    We are glad to see you back whenever the mood strikes you. You are always on my blogroll and my mind, since bento sisters bond for life :D <3 <3 <3

    Welcome back sweety!! We’ve missed you a ton! I hope all your colds have passed and you have a bright, happy, and healthy winter. I’m still impressed by the gingerbread carousel you made last year :) I can’t wait to see what you dream up this year!

    BTW, that mushroom is perhaps the most awesome mushroom in existence.
