To Sotia and Andrei, extremely happy wedding day! I'm so sorry I couldn't be there, but I've been thinking you a lot today. I hope everything has gone well and it has been everything you wished and worked for :)

This song has always brought weddings to my mind, because of the words. With this, once more: HAPPY, JOYFUL, WEDDING DAY SOTIA AND ANDREI!!!

sier96: (love)

This pic tells the reason why  :) I'm glad for you, truly!

Okay, remember the lacy gardigan I knit for myself a while ago? Well, there was a lot of yarn left, and I found a pattern for the same yarn, and knit a bolero (I don't have a better word for it) for my niece. The picture is a bad one, it's difficult to take a pic of it on a hanger. But I'm pleased with how it turned out :) And I hope she'll like it.

I don't necessarily mean weird in a bad way. I just find the smallest things extremely lovely from time to time :)
This time the cause of my happiness is... a toothbrush. Yes, you read right, a toothbrush. But not just any toothbrush, no. It's the prettiest toothbrush EVER, really. Just look at it; my two favorite colors together, and so girly!

So yeah, I'm happy :)

I haven't been knitting that much in the last year or so, but now I've gotten into it more again. I made few pairs of socks, mittens, small things. And then I found a beautiful pattern and a beautiful yarn to go with it. Faster than I thought, I made THIS:

It's meant to be worn in summertime. The lace knitting makes it rather cool to wear, even if it doesn't look like it.

Here's a detail from the sleeve.

I'm so very happy that I made something usable for myself  *squees some more*

I was IM:n with [ profile] obvmluver  yesterday, and told her how our apartment was filled with kids. It happens every year; when spring comes and turns into summer, our place is like a busy railway station, kids coming and going. Yesterday it was three of Saara's friends and two of Santeri's. They come, play Wii games, listen some music, eat and drink and make noise.

However, I prefer this. I like to know where my kids are, so I rather have their friends come over here, than S&S spend a lot of time at their friends' homes. So, I just go in our bedroom where I have a TV, my laptop, knitting tools and books, and happily listen the thumping and talking coming from the other rooms.

Why this happens on the spring and summer? I really don't know. We have their friends over in fall and winter too, but not as many and so often. Maybe it's just that kids like to move around when the weather is warm?

Now they are counting days to the summer holiday, and they deserve it after working hard at school the whole year. *hugs the kids*

I tend to listen more music in the summer, and again I have no reason, it just happens. Now it has been Stratovarius that's on top of the list. Their song "Paradise" has a message, about how we're ruining this earth with our selfish actions. I'm not a big eco-warrior, but I recycle as much as I can and use products that aren't disposable. And I love the song anyway :)

Music I listen changes with my moods, a lot. It can be anything from a perky pop to a sad, sad, blues or a heavy metal. What ever it is that I listen, it affects me. A friend of mine has told me how important music is in her life, and it made me think about it too. Music can move us, even motivate us. And if my summer is filled with perky music, I'll take it as a good sign. Definitely.

These are the guys, who FINALLY will come to Finland after 15 years, and will have a concert in Helsinki the 8th of June this summer!!!

Yes, I will see Green Day at concert!!! With my son!!!
You may notice I'm kind of excited :)
I was seriously settling on not ever seeing them play, but now we will :D

Now I can't wait for the summer to come, but at least I have something amazing to look forward to.

Okay, one more time:

Green Day in Finland!!!
I have the tickets!!!

We had such a great time on Saturday! There was finally just under 40 guests. Weather was perfect, not too hot, but sunny and warm. All the food was good, even the strawberry cake I made with Saara was all gone, and it was big. After most of the guests left, me, Rami, my sis, my brother and one of Rami´s sisters with her husband went to dinner. Well, my parents came too but they left after dinner. The restaurant did well, cause everybody liked what they ate. I had my usual stake...I can´t seem to be able to try anything new. I´m too picky and afraid to taste foods. I volunteered to be the driver, cause I don´t like to drink anyway cause my meds. Others had wine, beer, whatever, not sure :)

After dinner we did a little barhopping, well, four places. The six of us had a really great time, best time in years for me :) Hey, drinks, loud music, great company, what is there not to love!
After that we drove my sis and brother to our grandparents place where they were staying for the night. (Rami´s sister and her husband were staying in a hotel.)

And at about 2am we were home, had some VERY nice time ;) and I slept till 11am, had some strawberries and went back to sleep. I got finally up at 3pm, and now I feel quite rested actually :)

We got some really nice gifts, dishes for this Pentik collection (it´s called Apple) we love, towels, a candle lantern (beautiful), quite a bit of money, a gift certificate for a store so we can by a new microwave owen and some other stuff. I got a monkey mug I´ve been drooling over from Rami, and also something I can´t tell, but it´s really good :)

My grandpa read two poems, one that he wrote on the night before we got married, it´s called "Your Picture" (I think I cried a little...) and one that is called "Anniversary". He has written a poem in honor of our wedding too, but he did´t read it this time. It´s called "The River and The Ocean", I cried like a baby at our wedding when he read it there 15 years ago, so maybe it was for the best not to read it on Saturday :)

All in all, this was the best wedding anniversary ever, really. Everything went so well, everybody had a good time and I´ll remember this always. Now it´s back to ordinary, kids have little over a week of vacation left before school starts again, and luckily it will be warm and sunny if the forecast is right.

Thank you everybody for the congrats, warm thoughts and everything. If I get pictures from my mom I´ll post some. Love ya!
