Linden scent and lightnings

Yesterday evening was the second warm one this summer. So I decided to go out and enjoy it.  On the journey to town I noticed I had a mirror for makeup for a driver too!  (...and no, the picture is not taken in traffic lights....)

I went for a walk at the seaside. I’m very sensitive to cold but this time I could easily walk in my thin orange summer dress without any sense of freezing. The wind was gentle and air was full of scent of linden flowers.

After the seaside passage I walked to Helsinki city and had a drink at the terrace restaurant. There were no wind and the walls had been warmed by the sun so I even almost sweated in that sleeveless dress! Anyway I wanted to dance later so I went to disco to do it. I think they had air conditioning because it was not that hot anymore, even when I was dancing. 

When I came out of the disco I noticed the streets were a bit wet. And while driving home I saw plenty of lightnings from the thunder storm which had freshened up the air.

Foam party and blueberry pie week

This week has not been very special one. The weather has changed so rapidly and it has been not that warm so I skipped any swimming in the sea. Some sun bath has however taken place, at our yard. If the aim had been doing nothing, object would have been well achieved. Well, I went to the forest to pick some blueberries. I didn’t get much, but enough for blueberry pie though.

And one night I went to the city to foam party. I’ve never seen such so I decided to check it out. I had no intention to get any foam on me so I tried to look the happening from safe distance. I had my orange summer dress with a white blazer. I had just washed the blazer in spite of its sign not to wash it. Not the first time I had washed such clothes without any losses.

I came to the restaurant quite early so there were no people in foam area at the beginning. Then some people went to dance floor to get sprayed in their bathing suits. After some happy hour beers there were lots of dancers in normal clothing.  Afterwards it turned out that their clothes got wet!! The evening was not very warm so I saw many not so happy-looking shivering celebrants. Some tried to warm and dry themselves under the toilet hot air fan

Out again, after a long time

Thursday evening I decided to go out after a long break caused by summer guests whom I had to take to a long trip across Finland.

I decided to go in a restaurant where I could dance some disco and listen to other people sing karaoke (I'm so critical to myself, I sing karaoke only in very special cases). I also wanted to test some of my sale purchases: A Vila dress (7 €), 9 cm heeled sandals (17 €) and light seamed pantyhose (50 cents). The sandals and pantyhose let my red toe nails show nicely.

The sandals were so high I was too afraid to drive car with them so I took a pair of shoes with moderate heels to do it. I changed the sandals in town and found it a bit odd to walk on special high heels in the street, because I haven't done it before. Anyway I got to the restaurant with no major collapses. At the restaurant I did what I have planned, listened to karaoke and danced. I gradually learned the natural way to move on my heels and had a lot fun on the dance floor.

The only drawback during the night was the conversation with a man, who told I looked so awesome and elegant..... just like a queen mother!!! So am I really looking that old ??? Well it turned out the man was a gerontophilian and that might explain his choices of expression.

It was still so comfortably warm Finnish late night when I walked  along the Helsinki streets to my car to get home.
