just a few more hours

I’m getting more and more excited as the minutes tick by and it gets closer for my dad and sister to touch down in Helsinki. It will still take them a couple of hours more to reach us by bus, but if they make it to Finland on time, then the rest is easy! They will have 3 flights, 1 bus trip and approximately 27 hours of total travel time, door-to-door. Fingers crossed that all flights are on time and no luggage lost.

On a random note, as I was waking downtown on Monday to a play group, I stopped to take some pictures of the beautiful snow, ice and steam cooking off the lake. On the trees there was some hoar frost. Which got me thinking about the word “whore”, only I stooped couldn’t figure out how it was spelled. Only hoar and huora (whore in Finnish) came to mind. So, as I’m enjoying this beautiful scenery, I’m thinking of whores.

  1. So exciting! I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time with your family and they won't be able to get enough of Paxlet. :)I've always hoar frost was a really unfortunate name for something so pretty…

  2. They were here a week. It wasn't nearly enough (in many ways), but I'm very thankful they did come. And they loved Paxlet. I should write a follow-up post about their visit and the goodies they brought.
