Project Olaf: Olaf's Adventures

Let's continue Olaf's adventure today before I have to let him go tomorrow. For those of you who don't know what it's all about, you can go here:

Here's my first post on Olaf: Olaf's Here!

Yesterday evening I took Olaf to sauna 'coz going to sauna is such an important tradition in Finland. Olaf thinks sauna is a cool invention, especially considering how long the winter is up here.

Then I let him try our new relaxing sofa while watching R2 play Wii World of Goo. It's a puzzle game, so it's safe for Olaf to watch.

Olaf got more and more comfortable and he got rather sleepy, so I let him sleep there. :-D

This morning when Olaf woke up, the sun was shining brightly and he wanted to know the temperature. Only -5'C and it's much warmer under the sun. Hmmm...what shall we do today? Olaf asked me.

He ran upstairs 'coz he wanted a grand tour of the house.

Here's what Olaf saw from upstairs he he he...

After showing him the bedrooms, he was curious to see this small(ish) door, so I had to show him what it was.

Whoops...there's another door there! :-D's a cool storage room. :-D Most of the stuff here belongs to the ex-home owners, which will get them later in summer. :-D This storage room is pretty handy. :-D

Today Olaf also met a Finnish doll and they had quite an interesting chat about different topics. :-D

They became fast friends and they wanted me to take a pic of them. :-D

"I'll never forget you," the doll said to Olaf. Olaf replied, "Me, neither!"

Then I took Olaf out to take him sliding on a snowy "hill". Olaf was a bit scared at first, but he was also excited!!!!

WHOOOPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! That was exciting!!! :-D

After sliding down the snowy hill over and over again, Olaf helped me clean up the snow from the yard. Today there wasn't too much snow, but yesterday it snowed the whole day that there was at least 10-15 cm of snow on the ground by the time I went out to clean it.

What an interesting day! Now Olaf is resting for a while to prepare himself for another adventure when he arrives at Henny's place. So long,'s been nice hosting you and it's hard letting you go 'coz he's such a WONDERFUL bear, but Daniella needs you more than we do! So have a safe trip around the world until you reach Daniella, Olaf!!!!


  1. Hey, you're a talented story teller. Maybe you can make story books for kids?

  2. Ting: Hey, that's a GREAT idea about story books. I'll have to brainstorm about it. :-D THANKS for the idea!

  3. Awww...I'm glad he made wonderful people (and doll) there to be his friends! =)

  4. Whoa, Olaf must really have lots of fun with you there, Amel. :D
    Come here soon, Olaf. :D
