Sooo...I've missed the August photo...and now almost the September one...better update asap ;D

August, for me, was all about berry pickin';  black currants, blueberries...and raspberries!


Fall arrived in September...leaves changing colours...and birds flocking and/or migrating.


Autumn arriving means that winter is juuuust around the corner.  Something that makes me feel not unlike this:

Is it still considered a radio if it's insides are missing?  I liked the paint job, in any case :D

She was having fun up there...until some kids on the other side started (slightly) rocking the truck.  She got so worried, poor thing :(

It's a good thing they're so easily identifyable...easier for the kids to understand and remember that they're poisonous!

Oh, how I love Poppies...even just their seedpods!



I've abandoned all efforts to capture moving droplets...and have to be content with these type of shots.  For now ;D

259 and 260

I was up in that thing once...I won't do it again, though.  Not because I was scared at all;  it was an amazing experience!...but because I suffer from the worst motion sickness ever, and it was a very near thing that I puked in the little 2-seater!



Eggs are the first thing I think of when I hear the word 'dozen'...but, unfortunately, eggs come in 10's here!!!  So, I had to resort to finding eggs arranged in a different manner ;D

Caught up...I think... #252-258

My Munchkin turned 4!!



Of course, presents started the day off...



She received many congratulations...her favourite of which was this one :D



Luckily, dad was on hand to show her how to work her new computer!



I wonder if you can guess the theme of her party?? ;D



I even managed to bake something for the celebration...

(nybakat/freshly baked)

------------------------------------------------------------- addition to the cake, of course!

Even though I'm already missing summer (like, ALOT)... I'm still loving this gorgeous fall weather we've been having!

245, 246, and 247

I went to a furniture/design/interior decor expo in Helsinki with my school this past was a wonderful trip, full of ideas and inspiration for the coming year!
(this was just one of the display halls)



While there were many wonderful things to see, there were also a number of items that, let's say, I had trouble understanding...  What this pic doesn't show, is that the person was talking and moving as well...



The focus of the designs this year was 'Lighting', and there were many incredible and innovative lamps on display...

243 and 244

When asked about the computers in his work room in our house, he replied that he had just about enough of them there...



We didn't get to the play park more than once this summer...the kids love this place, and it's usually worth the 20 min drive to get there...especially if we bring a picnic lunch!
