SATURDAY BY THE HOUR

Last Saturday I spent in the habour and later at a great rocking gig in town, but this is what a few Saturdays ago as looked trough my phone:

09:00 - I wake up and start pin-curling my hair for a gig at a wedding I will have in the evening. I thought it'd be a lot faster now that my hair is short, but I need to make the curls smaller in order for the to actually be curly and not just a little bent. Alas, my arms still get tired during the procedure...



10:00 - do about an hour of yoga out in the garden. The cats are as awlays very eager to join.



11:00 - pick some left over wineberries to put on my breakfast sour milk.I wish I'd have had the time to pick some earlier are out in the freezer. (But the freezer did break down recently so good thing in the end I did not pick those berries on time; it would've pissed me off big time to have seen them ruined!)



12:00 - We're about to head back to town and I say goodbye to the lambs. They get to stay out all summer and are re-located a bit according to how fast they eat the vegetation up. Right now the female lambs are just outside our house.



13:00 - Driving home trough summery fields.



14:00 - Change of plans! Since somebody's ex wife has a little different way of comprehending schedule and agreements than the rest of the world we have the kids arriving a few days earlier to us rather sudden and need to re-organize everything and change the dinner plans I had with my sister; we'll do take away in stead and have it at our place after our show - which means a quick tidying up and cleaning! (PS: the bottle does say NON-toxic cleaning, although the picture tells it a little different :)



15:00 - Still panic-cleaning...



16:00 - Packing for our gig! I'll be doing my old Finnish movie summer themed number and Eddi will be part of the show too.Last time we did said number was in July a year ago.



17:00 - my sister and her hubby has agreed to do some extempore babysitting during our show. Here's their little Lily dog with it's huge bone! Lily is quite the hit with the kids, serving as a never ending source of fascination...



18:00 - Arriving at the veune before all the guests and hiding away backstage as we are suprise perfomers. Sir Willy Waterlily, Mis Sandy Jungle and Lola Vanilla are also performing tonight which means quality time make-upping and hanging out.


19:00 - Stil waiting... Here's lovely miss Jungle.


And Lola Vanilla, drag queen extraordinaire.



20:00 - The staff at the place is great; we've performed there often at different events. They send us up some bubbly.



21:00 - Showtime! Here's me and my co-star just about to go on stage. And oh yes I do this number to some good ol' rautalanka; my favorite.


22:00 - Back home; pick up children sister and boyfriend and have lots and lots of sushi. And edamame and kimchi and wine and I'm telling you; I could have this every second day, at least!


Later - A while after this I fall asleep on the couch.

Looks like a great saturday! The cat/yoga picture is so cute :)

...By the way, how do you set your hair now that its short? Do you curl it all backwards?

GinCherry said...

I agree with Margarita, seems that you had busy, but lovely saturday :) And I'm interested in your hair setting as well :)

lucia said...

From what place did you pick up the food? I am interested in the edamame.

Miss Margarita & Gin Cherry : pretty much the same way as before; only smaller curls. I roll them high on top of my head and the rest sideways!

Vildes Verden : just snap with your phone, there's always time for that :)

Lucia : Sushibar + Wine! I am TOTALLY addicted. Went there yesterday too. The edamame & kimchi is a must!

Love this post!

Mira said...

Great post! Your blog is always so lovely!

Question: My friend asked me to join him to the Kokonut Kult show this week, but I'm not sure what is expected from the audience in terms of clothing. Does the audience usually dress up for burlesque shows in Finland? I've understood that it is common e.g. in the U.K.

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Mira : People dress up a lot to bigger happenings, to smaller clubs (like Kokonut Kult) some dress up and others don't; you can pretty much come in which ever way you like and you won't feel under-or overdressed. For Kokonut Kult some go a bit tiki-crazy or tropical since it's held at a tiki bar :)

Burlesque dancer from Toronto, ON! Just found your blog :) subscribing!

LOVE these photos. Did you use an app to take the film-theme pics, or is that hand-edited?

Red Herring : thanks :) I took them normally with my iPhone and then edited them with Picture Show!

Perhaps the ex is bitter/cancelling arrangements because you were her "Joleen" if that is what happened . Not that it is anyones business of course. My friends husband has a troublesome ex and it can be trying for her at times. Love your blog by the way.

Anonymous : Haha, but no, no that was not the case. I'd understand it if it was the case.She has no reason to be mad or bitter bu apparently she still is.
