In the glass of black tea.

Pillows [Daily Photo #517]

Sometimes I think we have lots of pillows and cushions and sometimes it feels not enough at all. =D

Short Summer [Daily Photo #516]

This summer had a really slow start (thanks to snow in April and MAY…), and now it's almost autumn, so it feels like it's been an especially short summer. But maybe this autumn will be warm and we can get to enjoy flowers for a bit longer?

When You Can't Buy… [Daily Photo #512]

When you can't buy something, take a photo! =D I'm collecting Schleich animal figurines, but I can only buy a new one once I've written a certain amount of words, and I don't have enough for a new toy yet. (My previous reward was this donkey.) I'm working on 3+ things right now, veeeery irregularly, but these rewards help! What better way to stimulate my productivity than a promise of a toy? =D

IKEA Noms [Daily Photo #506]

So, yesterday we went to IKEA, and we got some new noms there! Oat smoothies, an instant mate drink and a spice mix. The spice mix is the only thing we haven't tried yet, the rest was delicious!

IKEA Lamps and Toys [Daily Photo #505]

We had lunch at IKEA today, and the lamps above our table looked quite interesting! But, there was barely any light from them…

From Seeds to Flowers [Daily Photo #503]

Hard to believe that just a short time ago (well, in June) all these flowers were just seeds! Also a bit hard to believe that no hare attempted to eat them – I see them lurking around all the time! =D

Non-Dairy Goodness [Daily Photo #502]

Time to share some of our shoppings once again. This time it's dairy-free products. Look at all the deliciousness! I want to try all the new vegetarian and vegan things but there are so many new ones nowadays that I think it's hopeless. =D Oh well, not the worst problem to have.

Flowers Before Storm [Daily Photo #499]

As soon as I took these photos the thunderstorm started! The lightnings were huuuuuge! I think this was the first time in my life I could actually see them clearly, sharply, almost slow-motion-like instead of just a bright, vague flash everywhere, and they had a purple glow, like on photos. The sky itself looked bluish-green. When the storm was over, the sun set and everything looked yellow! There was such a strong wind I worried about our plants, but it seems everyone is okay. Phew!

Vegan Pizza! Vegan Ben & Jerry's! [Daily Photo #498]

Omg! Look what we found in S-market!
Vegan pizza with pesto!

Trees in Nuuksio [Daily Photo #497]

We went hiking in Nuuksio today, me, my husband, and his brother. The weather was pretty nice, not too hot, with occasional refreshing breeze. It was so fun! I'm a bit tired from all the hiking, so I won't post that many photos, only 12, lol. To narrow it down, I had to pick a theme!

The trees of Nuuksio it is.

(I also have lots of Nuuksio photos from our previous trips here.)

Young Ducks [Daily Photo #494]

Today I met a group of young ducks that were a bit shy. However, eventually curiosity (or, most likely, hunger) won, and they approached my offerings, oat flakes.

Watermelon [Daily Photo #493]

It was rather hard to focus on taking pictures when that watermelon smelled so delicious, but somehow I managed not to try tasting it while shooting! =D

Faber-Castell Manga Pens [Daily Photo #492]

Some time ago I bought another box of the Faber-Castell manga pens because some of my old ones were running out of ink. These pens are really great if you like drawing thin, sharp lines, like me. ^^ The ink dries fast and doesn't smudge, which is a nice bonus!

Donkey Asya [Daily Photo #491]

Hello, this is my new writing reward friend, a donkey called Asya!
Asya: “Hello, everyone. Eee aaa.”

Asya says she's definitely NOT an assassin.

The Other Plants [Daily Photo #489]

Our house plants got a bit jealous and kindly asked me to feature them here, too, in addition to all the garden flowers. So, here they are! (Well, some of them.)
