How to survive November~23

Ever so happy to have pets. My cats are saving me at the moment. I took my camera for an outing today, but to get photos out of the camera, let’s nitpick, from the memory card is the problem. Veikka, my beautiful white cat came to save the day. A cat in a Box. We have dressed a cardboard box with an old t- shirt in a our hall,  funnily enough,  our cats enjoy it.

Saturday morning we drove the Helsinki, there is shoe store with very good service and knowledgeable personnel. In May,  I one tendon split and other was torn on my left foot,  unfortunately it has not healed. So,  as our trip to Australia is approaching,  I needed to find sandals / shoes that can accommodate my insoles that have been especially made for me. Story short.I got comfortable shoes, but they are not fashionable, that’s for sure.  I am not posting photos of the shoes. Lunch, we had lunch and while waiting for the food to arrive I took few photos.

Thursday, was slightly colder and for the first time I took my winter coat on. This way I did not have to have so many layers of clothing on. Life is surprising, it’s always unpredictable, sometimes in a good way, other times not so much. The same applies to the weather. Were am I going with this… no idea. Here is my photo of the day. Tinka to the rescue

How to survive November ~16

Sunshine !! I am so happy, today after many days of gray skies, drizzle or rain we had a half cloudy day, and yes, we got to see the sun and a sunset. It always amazes me the power the sun and light has. It was nice looking the other way you saw sun setting and in the other direction the half moon rising. It is now 16:37 as I stared doing this post and its dark outside.

Digital Art

One work week behind me, I can say I am happy its Friday!  I don’t know why I once again started to do this November thing. I suppose it was a good idea at the time. I am in trouble with it now, as stated in the last post, my inspirations is as dull as the grey weather outside. What to post… today this is what I came up with. Digital art. I did not have to leave the house, working from home saved time, so I played with old images and created this colorful piece of something 🙂

Decorations that make the work place more personal

Yes, no inspiration. Sorry for being so , well boring. I was sitting at my desk at work and I thought that is what I can post, picture of some decorations on my desk. I mean, I am grateful I have a job, that makes it easier to survive and not just November . Well I am revealing more of myself in November than other months…interested or not.  I tried the new way to do a post and edit the text, it did not work so smoothly…

Sunday was one more bleak day. Since we got home early this morning, we slept late. The joys of not having small children. Then we decorated. A new wallpaper did wonders to this room. I don’t know if I am trendy or not, but it is new and different. Our cats enjoy the flowers I bought

Pets, big or small to give you affection. Odin came on my lap to have a nap at my friends party. I got to enjoy some views from the 16th floor and nice beverages during the evening… no complaining on this November night

 

How to survive November 2017- 24

What can I say, November can look good if you make the effort to be in the nature at the right time, pay attention to color contrasts and details like rocks on the ground or drift wood. If you just look at it – it’s OK, but the wind factor makes the weather very harsh.

How to Survive November 2017 -12

Wow,half way into  November, this morning was so dark and the ground was covered in black ice, but  fortunately I just had to walk to my car – less than 50 meters so I did not fall down.  Later the day this wonderful thing called sun made it’s appearance too. I  am counting the days  as it is not that common  to have that many sunny days at this time it of the year. That is not a fact statement, more like my own observation. I work full time so I have to take photos near our office.   All around us,  there are construction site’s and high cranes so those are my spotting’s for todaycranes

Walking back to the office from lunch I had to photograph this wonder once again (sun).

Yesterdays sunshine turned to rain, me and a huge amount of others went to the mall to escape the rain…these are taken on the way home. Quite notable is  that this is also taken little after 3 PM… what a difference a day makes.

NOvember

it is a big NO, no,no for me, November is the saddest month of all, dark, bleak and wet. Dark when you leave for work and dark when you come home. Mainly grey during the day time…this first photo taken during day time.one lonesome apple with no green…so sad,  Others around 5-6 pm – so sad…
