FOUR THINGS RIGHT NOW

Been drinking pepper mint tea by the window after work, watching the rain. I get up a bit after five and the morning is dark already and feels cold, although the temperature is not that low. But when people downtown walk around in their t-shirts we in the harbour already wear beanies and scares, it is always colder by berth. I kept on waiting for that last promised heat wave that never came, and now the daily dose of rain has made me start changing into autumn mode. And it's all dark and stormy by now, the evening*.


Been dancing around a little practicing for mine and Tin's new feather routine for our Storyville show tomorrow. I like performing at Storyville as it is rather prestigious to be there and the staff is really great.


Lulu is anxiously watching over everything I do. (Especially those feathers)


And now I'm listening to arias and chansons. Sans red wine this time though**.
Bizet ♥. I like opera.
Eddi is not so found of my faiblesse for arias but, it comes with this package.


*) That made me think of a drink at the Tiki bar; Dark and Stormy.
Tea in all it's glory but I wouldn't say no to a tropical cocktail by now

**) Although now that I mentioned it I might skip the tea and pour myself a glass...

(Really, how will a person like I ever manage to one day be pregnant. My work team and I once did "italian day" in the harbour -we sometimesdo stuff like that not for things to suck too much-, printed out checks on A4 to make a tabel cloht and had pasta and tiramisu for lunch. And alcohol free wine. Which is not good I tell you, not good at all. Damn.)

Your blog is so lovely and I like reading all the random things you post about. I would love to travel in your part of the world someday.

Looks like the Finnish weather is the same as ours over here in Canada! At least the rain makes going back to school easier...

Have fun at your show tomorrow, I hope it goes well!

lulu is so beautiful! That peppermint tea is a great coincidence as I have really been craving for some for a while and just bought some yesterday. I had my first cup of it today and I drank it watching the rain and wind outside just before reading this post. Creepy..

It's still really hot here in Los Angeles and I'm hunkered in the one room that has air conditioning. Way, way too hot to go outside. It's nice to know that it's cool and fall-like somewhere in the world!
I love reading your posts...they're always inspiring!

There's a decent non-alcoholic sparkling wine in Alko, called Schloss Boosenburg or something like that. It was the drink that helped me through my 30th birthday party being heavily pregnant. Just in case you need this info some day ;)

We have the drink "Dark and Stormy" at a place called "The Vampire Lounge" in Stockholm too. Haven't seen it anywhere else. I think fall can be really cosy...Red wine does a lot to make it even cozier. That pregnancy part worries me a bit too... ;)
