Live music

Hi there! I’ve been mostly off line or done some small surfing on my phone during my free time since I get enough screen time at work and I’ve noticed my eyes grow tired after 8 hours of computering.

Yesterday evening my friend Mareetta took me to dinner to Tammisaari where we did a little summer evening dinner already on July. This time she wanted to see a Finnish-Swedish musician Fredrik Furu to perform. It was a free concert on a restaurant garden and since I had a work day we had some issues with the timing and rush hour but luckily managed to get there in time.

The weather was rainy and cold but the food and music were good so it was actually pretty good Friday evening. Some pics included.

In other news middlest son has been at home this week and last Saturday we did some wholesale grocery shopping which was good. They’ve been eating camp-ratios in the garrison due to the C-situation but it’s going to change soon, he ate like a growing young man. My aunt used to say young men have hollow legs and she knew since she had four.

I’ve been reading, knitting and crafting. I’m finally getting all of the old swaps I had forward, soem of them have been sitting on my desk far too long so I’m relieved. And a bit shamed but sometimes Life happens to the best of us. I wonder if there’s anyone swapping art decos on my readers?

Here is a pic of Sirius sleeping on my knee. I was trying to get to bed but you really can’t go when one is such s dear kitty, can you? On the other pic you can see our desk. We got some nice paintings from the Helsinki Art Museum (HAM) to the House and there’s still some sculptures showing up next week. This painting is called ”Exhaust” by Petri Rummukainen and everybody says the bunnies are us, so you can guess who is the one with the handbag? Yeah 😀

I finally finished Lucifer Season 5. I tried to watch it just one ep per evening but it’s so good and then it was also very short season. Now I’m on Umbrella Academy S2 which doesn’t seem quite as good as S1.

A song by Fredrik Furu for you, he sings in Swedish but I think you’ll survive. I did.

Circus

On Wednesday evening me and my colleagues had a fun night at the local WinterCircus a.k.a. Dance Theater Hurjaruuth. The circus performs in an old factory hall which I visited for the first time now and I must say it was pretty awesome, both the performance and the place.

The story was about a construction site  where the builders work during daytime and in the nighttime there’s ghosts or other spirits plus some very naughty mice. Awesome acrobatics, jugglers and parkour and live music made it better than I had hoped for. Our headmaster said he’d seen the circus every year since 2001 and this was the best so far.  I’m thinking about taking whole family there during the holidays if I can get tickets (or just youngest one).

Here you can watch the trailer and read a bit more about the performance if you’re interested. I myself like circus, one of my earliest memories of circus is when I was about four years old and my brother smuggled us in via the elephant tent. I can still smell it.
