Attending dance

On wednesday I attened the dress rehersal of PLAY; Kenneth Kvarnström choreography for the Helsinki Dance Company. I loved it! Whilst in the audience I found myself thinking, imagine that I get to experience something like this. Yesterday I attended a salsa-class in the morning before going into work - the day proceeded with great flow and ended with a massage in the evening. When I got home I stumbled into bed and fell asleep almost emmediately. Today I attended an argentinian tango workshop. I had a fantastic pair and felt, I can't find words to describe it, maybe it was happiness, as we found a connection almost emmediately. Seriously, I could have carried on and on. And I'm in desperate need of new danceshoes. And here is a classic argentinian tango, Carlos Gardel! So, whatever you do, get up and dance people!

Work is so much fun! And I have also spotted a star. One of the actresses I had booked for the animation, whom had no previous experience in dubbing, turned out to be pretty darn good at the job (I knew she would!!!!). The other staff at the studio were impressed and I believe she will be booked for many more animations in the future! I have started a little art-project and as soon as I turned my back, my little helper had found one of my hatboxes open (this is where I keep materials) and spotted a perfect hidingplace. She was much too fast for me, so I only managed to catch a blurry image. It is raining today, got soaked when I cykled this morning. Luckily I have good raingear;) Keep dry and warm dear friends! I have been listening to Anna Ternheim. I really enjoy this song.

Be kind to animals or...

I woke up to a sunny day. I pre-listened to the new Kate Bush album whilst still in bed. Then I got up, put my trainers on and went out for a long walk that turned into a long run! It was fantastic to be out and running. I have felt so terribly tired the past week! Then I attended yoga in the afternoon and my body was very pleased. When I got home I picked the last crop of jerusalem artichokes and made a heavenly soup. Whatever you make of jerusalem artichokes, the outcome is always heavenly! Now my body is very happy! What a wonderful sunday!

Dream a little

Yesterday I thought, ok, so it is november, the darkest and longest month, why don´t you go easy on yourself! So I did, I decided I will be gentle and kind and not expect myself to have as much energy as in the summer. I go through this every year. It always hits me unexpectedly when we change the clocks to winter-time. It is soooooo dark no wonder it feels blurry and dreamy. So I will just dream a little. Lit lots of candles, drink tea and listen to Koop Island Blues, featuring Ane Brun.

More work

I had a fantastic call this morning, I was offered a really fun job, starting end of this month. I will be directing an animated series. Well, productionwise (casting and schedules) it started emmediately once I said yes. This means I´m going to be super-busy as I´m still involved in another project until end of the year. But I like a challenge and it´s super fun! The weekend was wonderful. On saturday I attended a party. I danced and enjoyed very good company, lovely food and wine. On sunday morning I met up with a bunch of friends for brunch that lasted until the afternoon! Sunday evening I spent with the most lovely person. Above is a chair in our garden.

Call your girlfriend

You must all have seen this already. Aren't they charming? I adore the empty cottage cheese containers... Above is a candleholder purchaised from Butik Sophie. So winter has suddenly arrived. We had frost this morning! Oh yes, this means it´s time to start wearing those über-sexy long-johns when cykling into work;) Stay warm dear friends!

Since I had work in the afternoon I had time to bake carrotbuns for breakfast this morning. Perfect way to start the week, large pot of tea and freshly baked buns with butter, tomatoes and basil. Put on some Rachael Yamagata and enjoy a slow start to the week. Flowers given by the most lovely person. It is lovely and wonderful to have something tangible of a dear person, when I look at the flowers I think of my lovely person and that feels so very good. So if you want someone special to think of you - give them flowers! Have a good start to the week!
