Heating the House

Last night the temperature dropped to -15 c. I felt it in the morning and wanted to stay under the covers. It was +15 c inside the house. I spent the day tending fire in my heating unit. The house is lovely warm again.

Ode to Yoga Remorse

I have not been to my yoga class for ages for many reasons, which I am not going to list here. All excuses. However, when I was still a well behaving yogini, I needed to cross a river, dam and a park with seven bridges to get from home to my class.

Goodbye Old Friends

Due to storage shortage, I am forced to sell my chairs. I feel quite sad to depart from them, but what else I can do. For a nomad like moi, it is impossible to hold on to bulky things like these beauties.
I bought the chairs from a drift shop many years back. They had original paper upholstery from 30's in real Great Depression style. I got the yellow furniture velvet a few years back and my dad reupholstered them. Tomorrow I'll post an add in the net and wish to find a loving home to them.

At the Beginning

This blog is about me. At times, it might be about my diet, which I like healthy, but which I often fail. It will be about my interest in yoga, with what I used to be quite passionate, but I am finding it increasingly difficult to go to my classes. It will be about decorating, clothes, struggles with excess weight, friends, politics, books I read, youtube videos I like, shoes, cooking, eating, drinking, socializing, about anything and everything. If you can bear lots of nonsense and tons of me, me, me, you are most welcome join me on this journey.
I live in a tiny house in the north of Finland in a town called Oulu. The house has a small room, bath room and sauna. Having a sauna in your house is not luxury, if the house is located in Finland. For us sauna is a necessity. Everybody has a sauna and those few who do not have one, have an access to one. In my tiny house I like to burn candles. I am ought to job hunt, but most importantly, I need to learn to live my life to the fullest.
