Once again I am joining Anne in Residence to update you on things currently going on in my life. I love these series, as you have surely noticed over these months. So please join us!
Currently: July 2019
Reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. I have slowly found my way back to reading fiction that isn’t “Christian fiction.” It’s easy to feel like I always need to be very spiritual even with my “fun reads.” But now I’m remembering just how good books exist out there, and I’m venturing out again this summer.
Enjoying exploring new cities in Finland. Just today I visited the Häme Castle and the Holy Cross Church of Hattula. I also got to cross two items off on my summer bucket list: visiting a castle and a church. Then I visited the Iittala glass factory, which is the largest operating Finnish glass factory. It was pretty cool to get to go up the viewing balcony and see the production of different glass items.
Finding that life at the summer cabin is good for the soul. Our summer cabin is by a lake so the scenery is beautiful. It’s a bit old school with no running water, which makes it all the more interesting!
Tasting new ice cream hopefully soon. Trying a new ice cream flavor is on my summer bucket list so I’m working on that. Eating ice cream is a very important part of summer holidays, yes? However, just as my vacation started, we got a cold front with strong winds and rain. So it hasn’t quite been the right weather for ice cream yet. Soon, though!
Saving all the new books to my to read list, as well as putting new movies on my to watch list. It seems like there’s so many new books to read and movies to watch! But for now, I am focusing on enjoying whatever feels good that day and moment.
