We started our P-Day by sleeping in a bit. Trying to catch up on lost sleep from the weekend with lots of fireworks into wee hours of the morning. Us old folks need a little more sleep than those young whipper-snappers!
We needed to walk up to LIDL's for a couple of off we headed at about 11:00 a.m. The sun was just starting to come up good! Notice the 'reflectors' on my coat.
As we were walking up the hill we saw this cute little family headed up there as well. Pulling little ones behind on sleds is just a very common form of transportation here. We see it everywhere.
With December just ending and still having January, February and March to go for snowfall, we are not sure where they are going to PILE it!!
Walking down the street toward LIDL's......
And then walking through the local neighborhood to the POSTI to mail some letters. This POSTI-LADY let us take her picture. We told her were Americans and we don't have Posti-People like this in America. She thought that was funny!!
Headed back to the asuntola and the sun is SETTING at 1:15 p.m. We are looking forward t the longer daylight days.....although we will be leaving the end of April so not sure how many long 'light days' we will actually have. Good day for catching up.......!
