For record, the picture taken a few days ago from our apartment, tenth floor from the ground.
Actually we did not know when exactly the winter starts in Kuopio. But since temperature now is around -7'C, perhaps we can call it winter.
After all, people started shopping for Christmas and the shops also begun to open on Sunday.
So no more falling leaves on the ground but expect much more snows from the sky.
Mikael still adapting with the minus degree temperature. Right now, he always experience clogged nose whenever we went outside the house.
When his nose clogged, the plumber would be me while my wife will be my assistant. A few suctions to his nose will make things much better. But then he will sob for a while because suctions makes him angry.
Still remember my friend words. "Having child is a life changing event,".
We are having colorful days for past few days. My wife was already beyond her confinement period so we could spend more time outside especially going out for shopping, decorating house and eating fabulous foods.
Before Mikael, we love to shop for our clothes, accessories and so on.
After Mikael, the most meaningful things to do outside the house is shopping for his clothes.
We could say that he has already got a comprehensive wardrobe.
Is it costly to spend money for those fabulous clothes for him? Well, we think that the price is still reasonable. After all, those clothes are not branded label.
Today I went to sauna at our apartment as today it is open free of charge. The weather outside was pretty cold so I think it is just nice to have sometime heating myself there. The sauna room was a little bit packed today and at one time 5 people were there. I think 3-4 people at one time would be just nice so that the place not too campy.
Finnish people usually naked in sauna. So they separated the time of usage for men and women accordingly so that nobody will feel annoying or disturbed by the opposite gender in that sauna. From 5.00 to 7.00 pm is for men and 7.00 to 9.00 pm is strictly for women.
I also audited my weight before and after sauna. Unfortunately my weight was same before and after sauna. So maybe the old saying about people losing weight by sauna is just a myth. :)
