Random pics

I have had a horrible, snot filled flu from outer space whole week. If my vital signs of life start fading and suddenly I seem to be craving for my fellow people's brain please finish me off with a shovel right away. :)

We saw a little viviparous lizard in the woods today. I saw something dart over the mossy cliff and it was this guy, probably trying to catch some warmth from the unpredictable April sun. Reminded me of V.A. Koskenniemi poem about this creature:

Sun kevätkylmillä ma kohtasin
mun nuoruuteni keväimessä kerta,
kun omaa viluani värjötin --
sa olit samaa värisevää verta.

Ja lämpöä sun anoi sydämes
ja onnen puoleen pelokkaan ja vakaan
sa kylmyydestä käänsit katsehes --
ja mull' ei ollut antaa kumpaistakaan.

Sun tietäs maailmalla tunne en
ja oudot ovat sulle minun tieni.
Sa seuralainen kevätkylmien,
sua usein muistan, sisilisko pieni!

Mr. Fox got it wrong

Poor pink flamingos went all to pink flamingo heaven in Korkeasaari Zoo yesterday when a rogue fox managed to get inside their pen and did what foxes are bound to do if they are hungry. Sad tale but I hope eternal sunny days by the pool and palm trees to those flamingos.

Play Dough

I played today with play dough, made chairs, tables, beds, fruits, a finger, an ear and a foot of it. Very enlightning.
