You were asking to know more about daily life in Finland and Oulu in the survey. In the last week or so, one word can pretty much sum it up: FREEZING. It has been extremely cold, even for Finnish weather, from -20°C to -30°C (-4F to -22F). We haven’t been able to do much outside the house.
It’s too cold even for the dogs. They are soooo bored.
But there’s one positive thing about this boredom: the sun. The sun has been shining bright all week. It makes being stuck in the house much nicer. I have been able to photograph and I’m really enjoying my new drawing space. I even had to close the curtains because it was getting too bright! Artists’ studios should have large windows facing north. The only window facing north in our house is in the kitchen, and it’s quite small. The living room windows face south so during the day it actually get’s too sunny. But I’m not complaining, I’m taking in all the light :)
