T ypy ja Poju pyysivät päästä Zombie walkiin ja olivat ihan ihmeissään kun äiti antoi luvan, tosin sillä ehdolla että äitikin otettaisiin mukaan. Siitä alkoi sitten maskien suunnittelu 0euron budjetilla... Koska 3 osallistujaa oli lapsia, maskeerauksen piti olla myrkytöntä ja syötävää. Sen lisäksi en löytänyt "oikeita" maskejani mistään. Lapsille tärkeintä oli veri, joten sitä oli ehdottomasti oltava. Minusta pelkkä verellä lotraus on tylsää joten keinoihoa oli...

Tein Tupperwaren tiiminjohtajien kokoukseen hyvää levitettä. Kehittelin levitteen ihan omasta päästäni, tosin näillä raaka-aineilla ei voi epäonnistua :) * 1/2 rasiaa voita/margariiniä * 1 rasia maitorahkaa * 1 pallo mozzarellaa * pieni purkki oliiveja * pieni purkki aurinkokuivattua tomaattia tai muutama tuoretomaatti (tuoretomaatin "sisäosaa" ei pysty käyttämään tai tulee liian juoksevaa levitettä) * 1/2 ruukkua tuoretta basilikaa * 1/2 ruukkua tuoretta oreganoa Laita yrtit...

Koetin taas tienata "hyvä äiti"-palkintoa rakkailta esiteineiltä, no en oikeasti koettanut, mutta halusin tehdä jäätelömuoteilla jäätelöä. Oikeastaan jäätelö on hieman smoothien jatke. Eli tein muksuille smoothieta aamupalaksi, johon sitten lisäsin valkuais- ja vaniljavaahdon ja pakkaseen.

Oulu 1 Oulu 2 Last night there was an intense thunderstorm and heavy rain at 2 AM. For some reason I couldn't go back to sleep afterwards, and now I have a headache, because of lack of sleep. In the photographs there is less headache. They were taken in Oulu on July 24th while waiting for the night train. I got a notice that the axle nut which I ordered has now arrived. Tomorrow I hope to get the bicycle fixed. (Posting title is from the poem Photographs by John Unterecker.) Posted by Juha...

Lasten koululla ja tarhalla oli joulumyyjäiset ja niihin pyydettiin jotain myytävää. Sain käsiini Tupperwaren Hello Kitty-piparimuotit ja mitkä olisikaan paremmat pikkuleivät alakoulun myyjäisiin kuin Hello Kitty-pikkuleivät? Näitä en kerennyt koristelemaan pikeerillä, mutta onneksi kuvio on kauniisti esillä paistamisen jälkeenkin. Prinssin luokan kahvioon tein Suklaa-omar-yllätys muffinsseja, jotka prinssi koristeli pursotuksella. Ikinä ei ole ollut näin hyvän makuista...

Tämäkin oli tilattu kortti. Kortti tulisi rock-henkiselle pojalle, joka haaveilee moottoripyörästä. Jotenkin ajattelin ettei WOJn tai Magnolian pojat sopisi nyt korttiin... En omista sitten yhtään moottoripyörä-leimasinta. Ajattelin käyttää hivenen tummempia värejä ja koettaa tavoitella tyylikkyyttä. Teksti on Inkadinkadon setistä ja aikalailla se syy miksi tämän setin ostin. "Elämä on matka ei määränpää" niinhän se on ja ripille pääsy on vain sen yksi etappi. I was...

Christmas 1 Christmas 2 Christmas 3 Today I rode the bicycle for 1 1/2 hours. It was hot, and maybe I pushed a bit too hard, as I was quite tired afterwards. The photographs were taken at the Santa Claus Village in Lapland, near Rovaniemi, on July 20th. It wasn't a place where one would like to spend time, but we had a look anyway. These are illustrations of Finnish Christmas traditions. (Posting title is from a poem by Anthony Hecht.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Blur I thought that I would commute by bicycle today, but I got only 0.5 km away from home when my bicycle broke. The acorn nut in the rear axle came loose, and as the thread had got stripped in the nut, it wouldn't stay on. So, I had to walk the bicycle back home, and commuted by car instead. This evening I tried switching the left side nut to the right, and it went on perfectly. But the stripped nut was so loose that there was nothing else to do that try to find a shop selling replacement...

I didn't correct the flaws in these photographs in post-processing, let them be as they were. But I recommend highly the exhibitions as Arktikum, they were of top quality and well presented. One of the attractions was a photography exhibition by Pekka Sammallahti, titled Arctic Mindscapes, which was there until 3rd of August. Somehow I managed to confuse Pekka Sammallahti with Pentti...

Eli sain aika vapaat kädet kakun tekoon, toiveissa oli myöskin hyytelökakkua. Käytin ruskeaksi suklaamoussea jota käytin jo Miron ristiäiskakkuun ja oranssi löytyi mangomoussesta.

Bicycle Today I got the axle nut for the bicycle, and it fits. I need still to do a test ride, but looks good. Earlier this week I didn't get much exercise, as I had to commute by bus and car, because the bicycle was broken. But I got an ache in my leg muscles, as if I had done a lot of exercise. I wondered how this can be, until I realized that I have a standing desk at work. Some leg muscles were apparently underused during the summer, and now they got pressed back into service. Yesterday I...

Oulu 1 Oulu 2 I tested the bicycle yesterday, riding 17 km, and it worked well, the new axle nut keeps tight. I also installed new pedals to the bicycle. The old ones got 15 000 km of riding, and the new ones are the same model. When I got the bicycle I had different pedals, but they only lasted 400 km, and the second set of pedals even less than that. Then I switched to Shimano lock pedals, and they are durable.

I forgot to take a map with me, but I managed to go to lake Hauklampi anyway, using a compass, and back from there. There were a lot of deer fly, a dozen or so landing on me, and I for sure don't like the critters. The walk was shorter than I planned, but in any case I got over ten hours of exercise during the week. The photographs of damselflies were...

There was a thunderstorm passing by during the walk, with heavy rain. The temperature dropped from +17 °C to +11 °C, and I got soaked. This reminds me that I should apply a new water-repellent treatment to my old jacket, it gets wet too easily. And I should wash it also, it got quite dirty during the walk. I have got...

By the river near the city center there is a forest criss-crossed by paths, and in the forest there were several spots where Impatiens glandulifera was growing in uncontrolled manner.
