Five on Friday

It's time to sum up 5 things for Amy's Five on Friday!
I noticed that the hostess is changing in March.
So I wish to thank you Amy for having hosted this lovely meme ❤︎
It's a lot of work, so I understand it is time to let others take care.

As to my post, I'm short.


1 Reading
I have read a lot, mostly newly released Finnish books.
But this book of short stories from the 1980s was a true find - I recommend:



2 Literature evening
Recently I attended the 2nd Kirja vieköön! literature evening of this year.


The guest writers on the stage were interesting, including Koko Hubara,
a multiethnic brown girl, writer, journalist and blogger at her 
blog Ruskeat tytöt / Brown Girls.

Me and some other book bloggers


3 Photographing challenges
I participate weekly in some challenges. Here my photos for
Makrotex Challenge 'Seasoning' & Color Collage 'Strong Colors'.

Papaver orientale, Meconopsis cambrica, Alcea rosea 'Nigra'


4 ATP Rio de Janeiro
It is great that I can watch the tournament live on my couch.
Top ten players are not in Rio, but I'm a fan of some,
for e.g. the Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopoulos.


5 Winter vs Summer
We got a lot, I mean a lot of new snow. I'm waiting for spring, no snow  - no more!
A few days ago I posted a hilarious poem from the famous Finnish poet
Ilpo Tiihonen - Oh heiferiness and humaness.
It might be worthwhile to look at the link, the poem is really great fun!


Wishing you a great weekend!

  3. You must have been glad to get out to the literary evening and meet up with other book bloggers and listen to the guest writers. Your mosaic is beautiful as the colours are bright and cheery, but I also like the muted colours of the bunch of tulips. I'm sure you are looking forward to the Springtime! Wishing you a good weekend!

  8. What beautiful colors the flowers are. I've read that Raymond Carver, can't quite remember the story, but I remember the title. No winter here this year and I don't miss it.

  9. What a great way to spend an evening - with authors! I thought the heiferness poem was hilarious! Is that a pile of tumeric or of dry mustard or something else for the strong colour photo challenge. It's beautiful, whatever it is.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  15. I'm with you! NO MORE SNOW! I don't think we are going to have any more here. We have had unusually warm weather for this time of year. Buds are already on bushes. Very pretty pictures.

Thank you so much for your support of Five On Friday this week and in the weeks gone by. I do so appreciate it and have really enjoyed reading your posts. I hope that you will enjoy going to the new link up just as much and will continue to take part.
