I am so happy that this long and dark November is soon over.
A lot of time was spent simply at home reading and starting to decorate for Christmas.
I have walked in the neighbourhood almost daily. Only once I made a visit to the center of Helsinki,
because had to see my dentist. Some spring bulbs were planted and 10 books were read.
The coronavirus situation has been getting worse in Uusimaa / Helsinki region.
New tougher restrictions are valid from November 30 till December 20. This means that
museums, theatres & cinemas are closed and many sport activities are cancelled.
It is recommended that we don’t meet any other people than those with whom we are living with.
No public gettogethers, no family reunions either, the funerals being the only exception,
max 10 persons are allowed.
I doubt that Uusimaa / the capital region shall be shut for Christmas as it was in the spring.
In Novembr I read or listened 12 books, among them Margarita that won the greatest
literature prize in Finland - The Finlandia prize. French Pierre Lemaitre is a must reading!
Wishing you all a good start to December - stay well!
