Rainy midsummer

E. and I celebrated midsummer yesterday, even though the weather was anything but summery. For several days we’ve had cloudy, rainy weather, but yesterday it was especially dark and grim. The rain was coming down all day long and a cold wind was blowing in the trees. E. joked that “now we’re getting proper Finnish summer!” That, however, made it a lovely day to have a fire in the fireplace, as well as candles. For dinner I cooked salmon and Finnish gratinated vegetables. For dessert we had bread pudding with fresh (though, sadly, not local) strawberries.
