Celebrating my birthday

I don't have many pictures of myself. I'm usually the one behind the camera. These were taken at the Botanic Garden.

The view across Kaisaniemenlahti.

Linnunlaulu across Töölönlahti.

The Helsinki Cathedral and the Senate Square in the evening.

The Opera in the morning sun.

Pretty flowers

Where did the weekend go? My husband brought the girls home from Porvoo on Friday after work. On Saturday they went to watch the finals in Helsinki Cup. A little free time and they just had to fill it up with football. No surprises there! On Sunday it was time to pack their things again and off we were to Lappeenranta. It was nice and cool in the car, but driving to Lappeenranta and back during the same day is not on my list of favorite things to do. We had a nice dinner in Porvoo in a small restaurant in the Old Town. It was a very pretty evening.

Mostly yellow

We've been having over +30 C all week. It's getting too hot to do much of anything. Some argue it's better than -20 C in the winter, but I'm not sure I agree. You can always put on more clothes when it's cold, but it's getting difficult to take anything more off...

Have a beautiful weekend!
