Suuri Seikkailu ja elämä nyt!

Hyppäsimme käsi kädessä! Olemme saanet aitoutta, pysähtymistä, heräämistä, hetkeä. Nyt elämme hirsiä ja pellavarivettä, banaanilaatikoita, teinejä ja taaperoa, koiranneniä ja lampaita, kaartelevia merikotkia ja huikaisevaa halua merelle.




Autumn Specials coming up!

There is perhaps still something to find in the forest... Treasures of nature.
Pellas Home Forest - or cliffs...
Laara and Juliet

 - just we would get some more rain, then we got some more mushrooms to pick - but otherwise the early frost nights cut the season rapidly.

 All my tomatoes died, the pumpkins I manage to carry inside and cover with blankets and gather the last herbs to dry. The cellar is filled with carrots and potatoes and the onions gave a master crop this year.

Vegan Sheppard's Pie!
So it was time  to have a harvest party - so had thought the active members of our island's Culture Club, Kulturgillet!
A place for 104 islanders
Gjallarhorn was decorated by Virpi and her husband Mikko; she runs the lovely shop My Country Home - the old hall had never been more beautiful.
 Our family became involved when pappa, the father was asked to come and play with Mikko and we others to help with the arrangements.
Iris and I, happy to give a hand

The catering was arranged by Eamon, an Irish-Nauvo cook and his daughter, and yes, pulled beef, potatoes and sallads, it was an honour to the harvest!

The local baker Titti Bruun had made the organic bread

Isak took his job selling tickets seriously
Everyone had helped with the coffee table by baking cakes -
 I and Virpi tried not to start before the guests

His most devoted fan...
Little Sun Flower Girl -
songs made for our children on their big day one after another... Now performed for a bigger audience
No evidence from the dance part but yes, we did dance the night away.... Doing together, sharing, that is  the very special thing of  living in a small community like this that I really enjoy - it makes me feel belonging here.
