Workout Wednesdays I tell something about my exercises.
Spring is here, finally! Summer is almost here!
Today I woke up at 8 am after 12 hours of sleep. Yes 12 hours. I was really, really tired and today was my day off. I woke up with sore throat and heavy head. And it was raining. 😦 So I watched some tv and checked up Facebook and some other pages over the internet. Couple of hours and sun was up. Yay! I was so glad about it. Although I didn’t feel so good i decided I’ll go for a walk. Actually I had decided go to walk today last Sunday.
Weather was so nice. Weather was perfect. Sun was shining and there was hardly any wind. Temperature was 22°C (72°F) so I only needed sweatpants and a t-shirt on me. And my new sneakers 🙂 It was like a summer. I walked quite slowly because I didn’t feel so great and I walked only about 2 km (1.2 miles). And I really took my time, because I took some beautiful pictures of the nature.
It was so nice to walk at the sunshine. I could smell the spring and the top of all was to see the different kind of birds and hear them singing. Birds was too fast for my camera and I didn’t have any audio recorders with me (I don’t even own any audio recorders) to tape some of the beautiful voices in the woods. I aimed my camera to the different kind of flowers which are rising up from the ground.
I’m watching ice hockey at the same time I’m writing this so there could be even more grammar mistakes than usually. So sorry about that. Finland is playing against USA and it’s a tie right now. I have know idea whose going to win. Here’s some pictures I took today.

It could be branch of the willow tree. I’m not sure.

Just some woods
More coltsfoots or is it coltsfeet?
Just me =)
It’s been snowing all day. I love snow. I love winter as long as there’s snow on the ground. And now there’s nothing but snow, so I’m stoked about it!
Snow makes everything so bright. Winter is so dark time here in Finland though I live in South-West. In Lapland sun even won’t rise at this time of the year. But in Lapland there’s always snow. Here in South-West of Finland snow isn’t certain anymore. I remember when I was a kid, there was snow everywhere at winter time. And we had so much fun playing on the snow: sliding down on a sled hill, building snow men and having snowball fights. Nowadays it’s always a ponder whether there’ll be snow or not. Now I just hope this snow wouldn’t melt until spring. So we can have a WHITE CHRISTMAS. It would be awesome! I love Christmas, but I’ll write about that some other day.
I went about hour walk today. It was about -5 °C (23 °F), but felt colder because of the wind. I couldn’t be there longer, ‘cos wind was so chilly that my face froze. It was good exercise, ‘cos snow was up to my knees. It was quite tough walk in heavy snow. But it was great in spite of the freezing wind. Luckily wind was behind most of the time.

PS. Photos aren’t the best ones’ cos there was snowing and it was too dark for my camera. I really need new equipment, but my camera will do until I have money to buy new great one.
