(That's quite a funny Finnish word, even more funny when you hear me trying to pronounce it well.)
I already introduced you to the mökki shower in this post but let me tell you a bit more about it.
Mökki literally means summer cabin in Finnish. However, the "summer" part is a way to speak, just take a look at this picture taken in the "summer" cabin last year:
It kind of looks a bit better during the summer.
It's located on an Island in the Finnish archipelago (a.k.a. in the middle of nowhere).
I will be enjoying nature and quietness until Monday: reading, getting bitten by mosquitoes, going to the sauna, watching the midnight sun and putting my Mona-Lisa-smile - which I have pretty much mastered with the years - while I pretend to understand what people says (I will be the only one out of 20 people that do not speak either Finnish or Swedish, Yaaay!).
I promise to write the mökki report when I get back.
And now the random part of the post, which has nothing to do with the mökki, but you will have to live with it:
Today is the birthday of a very special friend and I would like to take the chance to shout "HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!" out loud. Did you hear it?
I wanna dedicate this song to you and here are your birthday cookies:
|They don't look so good but they taste great, I promise|
Close the eyes, make a wish and blow out the candle. Ready? Good.
I hope you have a magical day (and a magical year), may all your dreams come true!
Ok, now you come here before I go to the mökki and eat your chocolate cookies, but hurry up! otherwise I will eat them... (modesty apart, they are one of the best cookies I have ever made)
Lots of happy kisses to you and everybody out there!
See you next week!
