Ugh, what a week. Long story short - I read a lot, Finnish classes started again, we took a hike to wonderfully beautiful forest and I got engaged.
The Finnish classes are three hours on Monday evenings. The level of this particular course might be a bit too high, but hey, better too high than too low. I took classes last year and really need to start pushing myself more.
I finished two more books this week, Gardens of the Moon and The Universe Versus Alex Woods. Wonderful reads! I have the feeling that I've been picking really good reads lately. This means I've already finished five books this month, which is a HUGE PILE considering my average is six books a month.
Yesterday we went to a nature park near Helsinki (20 minutes by train, 25 by bus, 2 km on foot), it's got different length hiking tracks - we took the 4 km one. But it's not like walking on flat asphalt, it's full of tree roots and rocks and hills, so it took us quite a while to cover the distance. But it was so pretty there and the smell of autumn and and...! I'll add some photos.
Also, the boyfriend gave me a very pretty ring and now we are engaged. It was a very sweet moment and took place in a very pretty place.
So that's it for this week, I hope my reading kick continues for the week to come. I'm saving the majority of RIP books for October, so for now I'm just taking quite randomly books from my shelf.
Have a nice week, everyone!

Thank you Ellie, glad you like the photos - the forests in autumn are truly wonderful. Yea I snuck it in there, it's not really my thing to go around and announce happenings such as this, but it's the Sunday Snippets and I want to share important things happening in my life, so it had to sneak in there :)Delete
