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.




Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!
Long Friday and peace in the house, baking Easter bread and my long-time-favourite, French lemon pie. Slow cooking on a slow day.
Slow Cooking - something I feel strongly about, and found a kindred spirit in a Swedish author Lena Katarina Swanberg. 
I found her book Långsam mat och lugnare livet from Gothenburg, Sweden in an old-books-store Röda Ormen.
It arrived wrapped in thick old-fashioned brown paper as if they had understood that here comes something I will treasure and something that treasures the old-fashion ways of living & making slow food & sharing. 
Making Slow Food takes time but the rest is very simple. 
Good ingredients, wooden stove, cast iron pots and pans, wooden ladles, candle holders...
And if you feel tired, you just make a cup and read the paper. Ps. My true servant from DDR, the orange wondermixer, almost 40 years old...
No to-dos. The rest can wait. It was not me who decided I have to hurry.
Light the candle, gather the dear near, enjoy. The sweet is good for the soul.
Choose the most beautiful way even if it isn't always the fastest.

Ps. the Easter bonfire of Rumar village is lit on the Pellas field at 7.30 p.m. tomorrow - take your own sausages & soda, wellies and warm to wear, wellcome!
