October impressions

Fireplace

It's October folks! Here are some impressions of the first Sunday in October.

 

I made a fire in our big fireplace to keep the house warm.

 

The pumpkins are enjoying the sun inside as it is now too cold for them outside and we harvested them all.

 

I got this adorably sad Uppo-Nalle from a flea market iin September because it moved me so much I had tears in my eyes. He since lives on our couch.

Meet Miss Sophie

Miss Sophie

I finally managed to get decent pictures of our very lively new cat whom we have named Miss Sophie (Dinner for one, anyone?). She has been with us good two weeks now and seems to like us. She does claw places she shouldn't and ignores her clawing post completely. Any ideas what one could do to get her to claw places she should? She's not into catnip though, I tried that already. Other than that she's very lovely and cuddly and active and we like very very much already.

A cruise with friends

On the Baltic Sea

One of the (many, many) cool things about living back in Finland is that I get to see my old friends more often. There's a group of us who have been friends since high school and this weekend we got to go on a cruise on the Baltic Sea, from Turku heading towards Stockholm. That's a fun little vacation for us Finns to make, it's not all that expensive, there's good food and drinks, plus the scenery is absolutely amazing, as the archipelago of Stockholm is really pretty and that of Turku is just breathtaking. We had suhc luck with weather too, as it was gorgeous sunny weather the whole time!

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 6 - "The True Cost" in Ossining

The Ossining Documentary & Discussion Series

For my last piece in the USA 2016 travel journal I will return once more to New York State, to the town of Ossining where we attented a monthly event called The Ossining Documentary & Discussion Series. What that is is a public screening of a documentary film and a podium discussion about it and its theme afterwards.

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 4 Ice Cream

Lapp Valley Farm Ice Cream

Remember in part 2 I told we were treated to some ice cream? Well, we were, and what an ice cream it was! We went to Lapp Valley Farm, an Amish dairy farm and ice cream shop (with a drive-through too) all in one! They make their milk products, butter and ice cream out of the milk of ther own cows (which you can see in the first picture - now that is a short logistics chain!).

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 2 - Pennsylvania

Phil Williams' Permaculture farm

Welcome to Part 2 of my travel journal through the East Cost of the US in March 2016! This post will be all about Pennsylvania.

 

We stayed at a collagues place for a week in Chester County but boy did we get to see Pennsylvania! We took day trips almost every day and even an overnight trip to Huntingdon which is in the middle area of Pennsylvania! I can't possibly show all the pictures of the places we saw, so here are some highlights!

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 1 - New York State

Ophelia the therapy chicken

This March me and hubby Nick went to the US to see some friends and biogas colleagues (hmm, I must make a whole different post about that) and to generally have a good time and see new places after a long travel break. We were in the US for nearly 3 weeks and we passed seven states in total (though really staying in three of them). This is my travel journal which I will split in separate posts, because I don't want to flood you with pictures!

 

Part 1 is New York State and NYC.
