Back in Business!
I hope those of you who read this blog, have not lost all hope. (Admittedly, I almost did.)
I have encountered some recent technological hiccups with both my computer and my phone. Thankfully, one of my two lifelines was restored to all of it’s glory today, all the credit to some wonderful Finnish Apple service employees! My phone may just have to wait until I return to the States, which is fine.
I believe in my last post, (two–yikes–weeks ago,) I mentioned that Chris and I were awaiting the arrival of my family. We had SUCH a blast while they were here! Thank you again, Dad, Mom and Annie, for spending the week in this part of the world!! (More on that next week, as I am still organizing those photos.)
This past week has been quite warm–above freezing, and as I’m told, quite mild for the end of January in Finland. No complaints about that! I took Chris to a great little bistro just around the corner from our apartment, for lunch this week. (I had been there once before with my family.) We also tried a new coffee shop, which was fun. I love finding new places to dine or have coffee, as they are a bit hard to come by–unless you would like reindeer, potatoes and sausage for every meal. Except breakfast–then you have the option of a deli sandwich. No judgements if that’s what you enjoy, but let’s just say none of the aforementioned chow would be my first choice.
Also, Chris’ team acquired two new imports: both Canadian, both with wives. I met one, who was sweet as pie, unfortunately her husband’s contract with Tappara was temporary, and they were off to a team in Switzerland just as soon as they arrived in Finland. I am looking forward to meeting the other Canadian’s wife this coming week. It’s sounds crazy, but it’s sort of comforting to know that someone else is around to talk to that will happily converse with you, without hesitation.
C had a home game last night and has an away game tomorrow, which made for a nice relaxing Friday night. I plan to spend my morning at the gym tomorrow and then who knows! (It’s amazing how productive one is, sans technology.)
Well, I’m back in business, and I hope I have you all caught up…fingers crossed for no more technological turkeys.
Have a great weekend and stay warm, all you Midwesterners!! xo
