Tänään käväistiin Luumäellä Taavetin linnoituksen tilanne katsastamassa; aloitamme siellä ilmaiset yleisöopastukset torstaina 17.6. klo 15. Tämän lisäksi yleisöopastuksia on samaan aikaan torstaisin koko heinäkuun ajan. Tulkaahan kuulolle! 😊 Nyt samalla reissulla käytiin pojan ja miniän tykönä hakemassa matkaan nippu raparperia. 😊 Raparperit menevät nyt toistaiseksi pakastimeen, mutta muuntuvat kesäkuun alussa Kahvila Kaikun herkullisiksi raparperipiiraiksi vaniljakastikkeen kera. 😊 ...

Yhteistyötä syntyy nyt vähän joka puolella! 😊 Eilen oltiin Kouvolan seudulla, tänään Rautjärvellä, jossa vietimme hienon illan uusien yhteistyökumppanien kanssa tutustuen viininmaistelun merkeissä! Tutustukaapa tänään avattuun rajamailla.fi sivustoon! Hyvä ja hieno porukka! Kiitos järjestäjille (rajamailla), Koitsanlahden pito ja palvelulle maittavasta ruuasta ja Viiniviikareille erinomaisesti toteutetusta viinien maistelusta! Tästä se lähtee! Oikein odotamme yhteistyötä tässäkin porukassa! 😊👍💪 ... See MoreSee Less

Our forefathers used to think the ants nests was the castles of gnomes... I wonder, if this nest was watching us while we were having a May day picnic...🤔😊

Yesterday we were visited by two tour operators and their host to get acquainted with our program service offering. They all live in Finland and we complied with the restrictions and regulations in force, so the visit could be arranged safely. We played accordion and guitar and sang, organized a small serving and in addition our guests got to bake Karelian pies.😊 Nice visit overall! Very nice guests! Thanks for visiting us!

I started to make pictures with wool and needle.😊 In this work there is a pet called Muumi, a very lovely and nice dog. This was a present for my son and daughter-in-law. Today I sent my first work to a customer. She plans to give that as a present for a boy, who loved that dog, called Taavi, very deeply. ❤❤
