Autumn falls

The last day of summer occurred and soon it's faded into the past. To be honest the weather has been quite autumnal for the last week and I can't wait for getting to photograph all the colors the fall offers. The nature runs its course so to speak.  I love the autumn, but I kind of miss the summer too and its warmth and light clothes. This summer was so poor, but let's hope the next is better. 
Recent days I have worn a lot my old fake leather jacket which is lovely. With it I have wrapped a self made hoodie which is quite useful if the rain cloud appears. I'm quite lazy to keep an umbrella in a purse so the hood saves in a tight place like it did today. 
I haven't bought any new clothes recently, but now a small shopping fewer is dwelling in a mind. Perhaps it's due to the fall. A new pair of shoes would also be nice although I promised to myself while carrying the moving boxes that I won't buy more shoes...  but my memory is short in things like that ;D

It's a poncho time!

An attire from Tuesday when I was off and me and my beloved decided to go have burgers to the nearby restaurant. I love this graphic poncho which I purchased a year ago and actually I'm not sure if I have shown it here before. I have the several ponchos nowadays and now it's good time to wear them when a temperature is lower.
My week has included not much else than work and work out at the gym. In addition I started fixing the chair that I told you and it is now painted! The next step is to cover it and then it's done. I do hope that the fabric will settle nicely on it. It can be a bit challenging. 

I've also been looking for the new laptop for me, but there are so many models that it confuses my mind! Macbook would be nice, but expensive and then there is Lenovo Yoga which is fairly tempting due to a touch screen! The main thing is that the machine is powerful enough. My current laptop is not so old, but it's powerless, but I got it free so... Actually I have never bought the computer myself  earlier, this will be the first time.

Your face in the light

I was about to do a post already last night, but then I heard about that dreadful terror attack in Finland by a friend and I ended up following the news and blogging felt suddenly less important thing to do. I was sitting on the bus while my friend sent a message that something has happened in Turku. At first I thought there is just some small stabbing going on, but quickly I realized what was going on. I know many people from Turku and I've visited there really often recently because my dad was treated at the same hospital where the victims and attacker for weeks now during the summer, but he was transferred to the another location on Wednesday. This stupid attack didn't surprise me at all. This all was so much expected. 

But back to the subject. Here is my yesterday's outfit: 
One young guy asked me last nigh while I was going to buy a juice to the grocery store that: "are you going to celebrate because you are so dressed up?" -Nope this is just my everyday outfit. 
I love that chiffon dress and a harness is self made. Shoes are from Dinsko and earrings from Ebay. To be honest I've been really lazy when it comes to the clothes and make up recently, but yesterday I wanted to put effort into the look in honor of Friday. It cheered up my mind instantly.

My week has been quite normal. We visited swimming and sauna on Wednesday and otherwise I've been reading and yes I tried to golf for the first time in my life! My beloved has a golf set because he went in for golfing years ago and now he wanted to try it after a long break. It was really difficult!

I was watchin' the channel zero

I was waiting for the storm in the candle light last night, but it never arrived. What a disappointment! I love the thunder storms and unfortunately there haven't been any decent in this summer. Yesterday  it passed by Tampere and we got just a little bit tears from the sky. 
I've settled in better a day by day and the new dwelling starts to feel already like home though there is still a lot to do. All walls are too white and they require new pictures in a nice frame and in addition I need to cover and fix a rococo chair which is waiting for me in the cellar. That chair is a chaos and I've been moving the project forward all the time. I know there is hundreds of small nails under the cover and they are so difficult to remove; my hand starts to ache if I only think of it. Instead of demolishing the old treasure I've been watching the sixth season of Sons of Anarchy which is getting more and more violent. I had a long break with it because it felt that the  plot is in stuck, but now I have gone several episodes through and it tastes again. 
I also started to read a book about Richey Edwards which I stole from my beloved who didn't read it yet. Manic Street Preachers is fairly unfamiliar to me, but Richey's story is more than interesting. Sometimes I've dreamed of vanishing even myself and kind of I have done it in some level. 
My weekend was pretty good with the candles, book, music and SOA. Hope you had a good time as well.

The whirl

Still alive after the absence. I've been living inside the hurricane or at least it feels like that metaphorically. All the affairs around me have flown tumbled  and I've been watching the chaos in the middle of the whirl. Not the best summer at all. Almost nothing happened like I planned and in addition the weather has been very poor.  Also the move came earlier as I assumed, but that was okay. I've settled down into the new home now and it's pretty and homey, but requires still organization. The location takes time to shake down. Before I lived in the downtown, but now a few kilometers further on. All last week went by packing goods into the boxes and carrying them across the city and hunting the dusty balls and spider webs like a real warrior. 
I try to return to the blogosphere as soon as possible. I've missed blogging a lot, but it's not always possible to do your favorite things in this life. I've taken a bunch of pictures about the nature during the summer which I would like to share with you, but the problem is that my current laptop is really poor quality and it doesn't run photoshop or lightroom properly. I'm about to buy a new computer at some point and then everything will be much easier and especially faster.
