We are getting ready for Juhannus, the Finnish summer solstice celebration.

Making pies and salads and Karelian pastries... playing hide-and-seek in the closet....
a quick lunch...  taking an afternoon nap... a traditional Finnish sauna (although at home,
not in the woods)...

... and a party or two in the evening!

Hyvää juhannusta!
Happy midsummer!

I like to party as well... but there is nothing to celebrate. Wait... next week there will be a big celabration at my grandmothers 70th bithday. Till than I'll finish my investigation cards hopefully. That would save me some money for stams ;).
