This is nothing compared to today's cold record in Northern Finland, -40.7°C, but it was a good, crispy morning here as well. After work I had some time on my hands, because the timer of the heater for my car hadn't worked at all.. While waiting for the engine to warm up a bit I took a stroll in the neighbourhood. Luckily, I had brought a few extra layers with me.

At home I put the kettle on and had some spicy tea to warm up. Just as I'd finished off, I realized that I have to go out again. It's the second round of the presidential election and I think the only proper way to go to the polling stations is to go on foot. That's how I've always done it. There's something grand about doing it like that. So, got my warm sweater, winter pants, down jacket, two beanies, two wool scarves and two pairs of mittens and the warmest snow boots with wool socks and gaiters on and went out again, cast my vote and returned home. Now I have some time knit before going to a meeting in the evening. I think I might walk there..


  1. Ihanat valot ja jäiset tunnelmat, nyt onneksi lämpimämpää. Kevättä kohti ja valoa, ihanaa. Kaikkea hyvää alkavaan viikkoosi.

  2. Kiitos Sarppu! Samoin sinulle :)

  3. Hyytävän kauniita kuvia jälleen. Nuo punaruskeat talot lumimaisemassa ovat jotenkin niin Suomea!

    Kunnon toppaus sinulla päällä...!

  4. Kiitos, Tie on kevyt.
    Minä tykkään ollsa mieluummin paksuissa kamppeissa kuin palella :)
    Tänään teinkin sitten sen virheen, että lähdin töihin lauhan päivän jälkeen katsomata mittaria, jossa olisi ilmeisesti ollut kolmosella alkava numero...
