November is here … finally?

That is a typical november weather here in finland. Grey and rainy. The last years autumn was like this, for weeks. No sun at all.

After a while it is really depressing, the sun going down early, long dark and grey weather.

But as you can can see from the previous posts, this autumn was really beautiful so far.

The last days were really grey and I am happy about it. I enjoyed the weather really! But let’s see if this stays long, I think I am going to miss the sun…

Autumn moments to remember

This autumn has really been the complete opposite of summer. We had only few sunny days and it was cold and rainy.
But this autumn, the first time since I came here, has been so sunny and beautiful. The colors are so amazing and everything is like a masterpiece of art, awesome in colors and light.

I really hope there are still many sunny days to come

An ordinary monday evening, I am waiting for the rice to finish, the kids are coloring and the teen is tapping on her phone. Daily grind as usual, but still there are small wonders around us we fail so often to see.
Like those tiny hairs on the Sarracenia plant, which is desperate trying to survive on our kitchen window.
I hope I never get too busy to notice the small wonders of life.
Alhamdulillah

Summernight at the finnish countryside

A small roadtrip few days ago. We did not go far, but far from the civilization. I wonder how people can live in the middle of nowhere. Ok, it is quiet, but I would be afraid. Of bears… and wolfes… and crazy murderers, we all know these movies 😀

The first shot is the sunset at a nearby lake. I think the light on the sky near the sun is called a halo.

The other pictures are taken later, after the sun went down.

The lake and the woods were so quiet and peaceful. It was strange how the mist seemed to pour out of the ground and float to the lake.

Even some fields were misty…
