High Five for Friday

Time for another High Five for Friday! I missed last week, but now I'm back on track! This post idea is from Lauren @ From My Grey Desk.

1. Brownies

My, were these yummy!

2. Sunset

Driving back home from Zumba class on Monday. Had to stop to take this photo.

3. Trying out a new recipe

It's always exciting and fun to try out new recipes!
This is the site photo for the banana cake that's in the oven right now.

4. Flowers

I'm happy I've managed to keep these lovely flowers alive for several weeks already!
Not the be taken for granted in my care.

5. First snow today

This is in the afternoon already, there was even more snow in the morning.

How was your week?

High Five for Friday

Weeks go by so fast! We're almost halfway through October that just started! Well, not quite. But here in Finland that means the sun sets earlier and earlier and the days get shorter. In two weeks we're turning the clocks from Daylight Saving Time and that means the sun will set even sooner... Not looking for to that! Well, not it's Friday anyway and I'm sharing my high fives from this week. This is a post idea by Lauren and I'm linking up with her.

  1.  Zigzag, mittens, knitting, yarn
  2. Fall foliage, maple trees, my favorites this time of year
  3. Evening with Lizzy and other period drama
  4. My cute little pupils <3
  5. Fall Break next week! I know it's not until next week, but the thought of it has kept me going this week!

How has your week been? Have a great weekend you all!

High Five for Friday

Hey you people! It's Friday once again. Here it's a rainy and grey one weather-wise, but still, marks the beginning of the weekend, not bad! I'm again sharing my five favorite things from the last week in this post, linking up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk.

1. New cell

I received my new cell phone, Sony Xperia Sola in the mail last Friday, but had such a busy Friday that I didn't have time to post my H54F post then. I've been getting to know its different features and so far I'm really satisfied. I even did a blog post on it the other day, and it was really handy too! Loving it.

2. My new blog buttons

By Kira @ Her New Leaf
I used Kira's Freebie social media buttons and her tutorial on how to add them. I think they are so pretty! Thank you Kira for your free buttons! You might notice a new one in there too. That's right, along with the new cell phone, I'm now on Instagram!

3. Girls' weekend

No, we didn't watch all the Disney Princess movies, this is just symbolic :) My three dear friends and I got together for a girls' weekend last week. We haven't met all together since March 2011 and it was just wonderful catching up on talking and spending time together. Naturally the weekend included good food and romantic comedies as well :) I really like this tradition we've started and hope we can arrange another one of these weekends in the spring or summer.

4. My new cake carrier

I bought a cake carrier from Tupperware. Their products are really good quality, but also fairly pricey for my budget. Now I decided it was time. Quite often when I bake, I take whatever I make with me somewhere: to work, to a gathering, to a potluck... But I haven't owned any kind of a cake carrier before, which has been inconvenient at times. But now I have a really good one.

5. The new Bond theme

I love Adele and I love Bond movies. I think the two of them go perfectly together. I've really liked the newest movies with Daniel Craig and I'm sure the next one will be another great film. The new theme song by Adele was released today, on the 50th anniversary of Bond movies. To me, this song is just what a Bond theme sound like.

Well, I hope you all had a great week and are facing an even better weekend! What was your favorite thing this week?

Crochet Baby Boots

Friends of ours had their third child a little over a week ago and we went to meet the tiny little girl last night. Before we left home I had a busy time crocheting these little boots for her. The pattern was easy and it didn't take a lot of time to whip up a pair of wrap around boots with a scallop edge and buttons on the side. I'm happy with the result.

Btw, this is my first time posting on a cell phone. You'll hear more about that later :)
