SUNDAY SWIMMINGS




In the pool, while swimming, the sun rays were glimmering. Outside snow was sparkling. The sun warmed through windows and the water was turquoise.

Surprise visitors from behind a sea, beautiful music and long breakfasts. Many smiles.

Happy February! Helmikuu, Pearl Month. Helmikuu helistää, February rattles. February is the coldest month in Finland. Pearls appear on tree branches as the sun starts to shine more, it warms and melts the snow to raindrops and the evening cold freezes them again. Ice pearls are hanging on all tree branches.

Have a sweet beginning for the new week!

    1. If you then take yourself for a sweet cup of tea or coffee, heading back outside is not that bad at all dear Anna!

  3. That is stunning! And I think February will be the coldest one here too. I'm not one for the cold, but I do love the look of snow and ice<3

  7. Hei Anna, uimari! Minäkin käyn uimassa lämmittelemässä, turkoosissa vedessä on aika hyvä.

    Hienoja värejä tässä.

    Hyvää viikkoa sinne, täällä tänään aurinko välillä pilkahtelee. Helmikuu on hyvä.

    1. Hei ihana Hanna!

      Uiminen on hyvää, ehtisipä useammin. Saunoissa aina tapaa myös niin mielenkiintoisia ihmisiä. Kerran n. kuusikymppisen, joka vielä muutama vuosi sitten oli kiertänyt au pairina maailmaa ja nähnyt paljoon vaikkei kauheasti kieliä osannutkaan. Rohkaisi ja voimisti ja sai paljon uusia tarinoita mietittäväkseen.

      Aurinko piirsi pöydälleni äsken pienen kuvion, mutta katosi taas pilvenhattaraan.

      Hyvää maanantaita!
