An unexpected break from my newly established frequent blogging routine occured when I jumped in the car with my parents after they visited me so I could pay them an unplanned visit in return of their well-planned one, and my absence from the online world got prolonged a bit. My father took us home via a scenic route along the Lake Päijänne and we got to enjoy perfect Finnish summer scenery from the comfort of an airconditioned car (the heatwave is simply dreadful; I'm not built for temperatures exceeding +23C, let alone +30). I'm not great at taking landscape photos from a moving vehicle, so I didn't even bother trying and I can only share these photos I took when we stopped to stretch our legs a bit. Lovely, isn't it?
My parents brought us extra shelves for our bookshelf. I managed to fit in 8,8 meters of them and immediately filled well over 7m of them with books and movies that were previously double-shelved, stacked and/or in hiding. I have a feeling we'll have trouble making it into 2015 without running out of space, again. Our trip to London doesn't help as we tend to return from there with masses of books every time.
I'll get back to sharing my assemblages in a day or two. Meanwhile you might enjoy the photos my mother took of the crafty part of Jyväskylä while visiting me.
