SO, Thursday morning we decided to walk to Lidl to pick up a couple of things and walk to the Posti and mail a couple of cards. We are on the afternoon shift and we decided to take that walk. Get out and enjoy the 'beautiful' weather....the sun was somewhere 'shining'. Don't know how long this weather will last so we better take advantage of it!

The 1st picture of the temple was taken at midnight again.....sorry, there was a full moon and we haven't seen that for a while! Thought I best get a picture in case it disappears again!

And then at about 8:30 a.m. I noticed just how dark it still was....the outside lights on the asuntola and the temple and the nativity are still on. They don't go off until about 9:30 - 10:00 a.m. nowadays! The longest, darkest day of the year is December 21st. Can't wait to see what that is like!

We had several interesting 'things' as we were taking our walk:
1) we have seen thee busses with EMMA on the side and we were trying to figure out what they were advertising. I thought maybe it was a movie about Emma Smith!! Go figure! Actually the EMMA stands for 'Espoo Museum of Modern Art'....clever huh! It might be a nice place to go see.

And then as were walking from the Posti to Lidl I looked up and saw this 'cloud formation'! I mentioned that it looked like the Northern Lights we had seen in Lapland in Inari back in September.....only during the daytime. Do you think that would be possible? I have to wonder. I think it was!!! :-)
