The Kaivopuisto Air Show 2017

The Air Show was arranged by the Finnish Aviation Museum and took place in Kaivopuisto Helsinki yesterday. The weather was gorgeous. Lots and lots of people. We were not there from the very beginning but, we saw Finnair’s new Airbus A 350 while still walking to the site of the event. Unfortunately I was not yet ready with my camera. We also saw Arctic Eagles, Typhoon and Gripens fly. They were fast and the noise level was high. I’m happy we didn’t take Canelo with us. The gray color of those planes made it hard for me to follow and my photos were no good. I deleted them all. Luckily the Red Arrows red color made it much easier to photograph.

A short clip. Quality not very good.

Happy Easter 2017

Easter 2017 This is a coloring card the Finnish post office gives to every household for Easter. I guess it’s meant for kids but why not for seniors as well. So, I colored it. The background was yellow and needed not to be colored, but the bunny, egg and chicken are colored by me. It was fun. Maybe I should buy a coloring book 🙂

Happy Easter !

Photo Art

I was all oohs and aahs seeing the photos of a dear friend of mine transformed into beautiful art paintings. I told her they look fantastic. She said, you have to try it, it’s so cool. It’s an app called Prisma and it’s free. I downloaded it right the way. And, I totally agree, it’s so cool and fun. One of my secret dreams has been to have the talent to paint. Unfortunately I have zero talent or skill 😦 but, it has not stopped me from trying 😀 Now, thanks to Prisma, I can use my photos, turn them into art paintings in an instant. Well, I won’t turn all of them just play with some now and them. Cool eh ?


Before & After

Canelo img_2835cCanelo img_2882c Canelo needed a grooming. So we took him to the groomer yesterday. This was the first time since Jacky came into the family. Oh my, you should have seen Jacky’s face when we came back home. His jaw dropped. Eyes and mouth wide open he stared at Canelo. What on earth happened to you ? ? And you really smell oddly ! All afternoon and evening he just had to sniff, lick and touch him. Canelo felt a bit annoyed and told him to leave him alone. This morning things are back to normal 🙂

Gluten Free Pie

Gluten Free Salmon Pie img_2126cGluten Free Salmon Pie  img_2127c

Last week I made gluten free pie. I actually made three. Friends were to came to visit on Sunday and the other one of them is on gluten free diet. I have never (as far as I remember) made anything gluten free. I thought I’d try to make something gluten free. A smoked salmon pie.  I said to my husband I must make one already on Friday. He said why don’t you do that on Saturday. No, no, I said. Because if the first one is a total disaster I still can try an other recipe on Saturday. The first one with smoked salmon on Friday was pretty good but I was not happy with the crust. By the way, I forgot to take a picture of it 😉 On Saturday I made a new one. This time with ham. Because my husband said smoked salmon pie three days in a row is too much 🙂 This crust was better. So I used the same recipe for the Sunday salmon pie. Our guests said it was delicious. My husband said it was the best one of all three and that it also looked the best. Did you take a picture, he asked. Oh, no I forgot ! Our friends both looked perplexed. They asked why ? Should you have had to take a picture ? I felt a bit awkward and embarrassed but admitted I post pictures of food I cook on my blog. Not everyday food but food I seldom make or new recipes I like try out.
