Perfect Day

Digital Collage and Mixed Media by Itkupilli

Perfect day

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark, we'll go home
Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie too, and then home


Oh it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging x2

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It's such fun

Just a perfect day
You make me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good


You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

yvää Päivää Kirsi !

How nice to find such a sweet message from you on my blog this morning. Te olette ihania! Kiitos!

Such a beautiful song.. and with so many different musicians featured. Emmylou Harris is one of my favorites..

Yesterday was the perfect day for me.. I climbed high into the mountains to my secret spot by the springs. It was just me and my boyfriend. We spent the day putting our feet into the water and cooling off under the shade and resting on boulders watching the hawks and other birds fly overhead... no sangria though..

And now a beautiful morning visiting my sisters here in blogersville. (I'm feeling very very tired though this morning.... sore muscles...)


Minä rakastan sinua Kirsi!
Aurinko Nainen

ThanKwee said...

oops! That should have been "Hyvää Päivää Kirsi !"

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Auriko Nainen,

You speak so perfect Finnish, I’m amazed....

Sounds so wonderful, I’m very happy for you…I was missing you, but you had best possible excuse to stay away from Bloggerville...:)

Rakastan sinua, olet ihana!

I didn't actually really know Lou Reed's music (I was always interested in very different music) but I accidentally saw him live in Reykjavik three years ago (thanks again, Laufey, wherever you are). A really good concert.

Because Mr. Reed was still around the next day during "Cultural Day" the DJ played "Perfect Day" at the end of the day.

Fitting music for a beautiful day.

Ana Banana said...

This is a beautiful song, Kirsi...sent chills up my spine.
we're going to reap REAP, reap, whatever we sow!

Good morning...and blah, blah, blah...you know the rest!

Yes, a perfect day in bloggerville once again. If only life can be so perfect.

The collage is lovely...

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Hej Erik-Jan

Please to meet you. I bet it was fabulous concert in fascinating city. I haven’t visited in Iceland, but an other Nordic country is sure close to my heart….

Sweetest Sister Banana

Still looking so cute…and thank you for a nice surprise what was waiting at your blog…guess how many hundreds times I checked there….

I think this is a perfect song....just fits so well to my mood to day….

SusuPetal said...

Oh, what a perfect video! Lifts my spirits up, hope so.
And your collage is airy and beautiful, as usual. You're a talent, Kirsi.

Kelly said...

Hello Kirsi...Love, love, love this collage!!!! It really speaks to me...

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Susu

This video really lifts the spirit…when I listen this song I love every single soul in this universe and I can just admire all the beauty…and these different voices just are all so perfect…thank you….

Kelly

I’m very honoured you like my collage, I like your style so much….something similar we surely have with our taste…thank you…

Mick said...

Another wonderful collage of course. I usually resist playing the songs but the words hit me between the eyes this time (I saw "her" on the street today, we passed without saying hello) ... I don't suppose the tears will ever completely dry. (Sigh!)

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Thank you Mick,

I so know what you mean...like you know...but tears can dry and really should...or perhaps better say that they turn from sorrow to gratitude…

I admire you, you’re really daring man…and that is why you are so great artist…

okjimm said...

hmmmm i don't know what happened to my other comment...I was writing mail and when I came back it was not here....i don't know where the blog i am these days

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Jimmmmmm!!!!
Well now you’re here....I sometimes don’t remember meanwhile writing the comment where I am, and have to check to whom I am talking....:)

okjimm said...

you may have all the sangria...I will have a beer
we will feed the animals at the zoo


but let's skip the movie and just go home.....and make our own movie ...I will be Boogie and you may be Bacall

I see that AnaB is as articulate as ever

/Good morning...and blah, blah, blah...// I think blah blah blah might be a witches curse ?

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Sounds perfect to me...but I would also like to take a beer instead ...and then go home....

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

...oh oops first the zoo of course...

okjimm said...

yes...take me home....i have has so much 'insane Wisconsin cheese' that I promise to be entertaining......I will juggle for you..and tell jokes.....and sing..........well i can't really juggle and I do not sing well....but that is the entertaining part......I so love the post....it is such a reflection of an opened heart

okjimm said...

ah yes, the zoo first...may I buy you a lemon ice?

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

hey how it is with moonlight walk….?!? And then get laid…remember when you promised that…???

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

…2 weeks ago, 2 years ago, 20 years ago, 200, 2000???

Ooops we are doing this once more at the public place…!!!!

moonbeam said...

check your mail

okjimm said...

shhh....i have pulled the curtains

sleep.

Ana Banana said...

hahahahahahahahaha!

Ana Banana said...

don't worry Kirsi...about "doing it" in a public place!

I have my popcorn and I'm just sitting back enjoying it all!

LMAO!

Ana Banana said...

Did we get to the Boogie and Bacall movie, yet?

you two...ohlala! LALA!

by the time you two meet, the first sex scene will have long been over. I know you two have all ready "did it" in cyberspace! hahahaha!

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Sweet banana

It is sure more fun with audience….here was no one left….I knew I can trust you….hehehehehehe….

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

I mean we were making delicious Cherry Cheescake and here was nobody to share it....

Ana Banana said...

LMAO! yes! much more fun...with audience! And share all you want! I can't get enough of Cherry Cheesecake! I think I'll just sit back and pretend I'm not here...wait for it to really heat up....when it is so HOT, that you two forget that little Anawitch is watching...that's when I go get more popcorn and start drooling!

ThanKwee said...

Hei Kirsi!

I am going to get myself a bag of popcorn too! Ana the good witch and I are enjoying this steamy love scene..
What will happen next?

Stay tuned... :)))

As for speaking perfect Finnish... haHaHA! However, I have been studying it. I found a youtube lesson. Such a lovely language! So many vowels!

Here is my lesson for today:
Finnish pronouns in the nominative -
minä sinä hän
me te he

I can't help but feel that it resembles somewhat some the American Indian languages.

ThanKwee said...

The only difficult thing is figuring out how to pronounce the words! I know you said they are pronounced as they're spelled, but it's not that easy..

For example, in English, "he" would be pronounced as "hee".. In Finnish, I believe that it would be pronounced "heh"..

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Hello Sisters!!!

You make me smile, you are so cute!!!!!

He is pronounced “he”. Just like it is written. Never any extra sound. E is pronounced “e” not “ii” like in English…it is really simple…well the only simple thing with Finnish…

Kelly said...

Aahhh...Cyber Sex~almost as good as the real thing, yes? hahaha

Move over Ana's so I can plop down beside y'all!!!

The Ana's and Kelly said...

We're busy munching on our popcorn..

:))))

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

ROFLMAO!!!!!
Oh you crazy sisters!!!!!

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Oooh dear….I’m quite shy and could be that I don’t dare to show up at my own blog anymore if you just sit there staring and munching your popcorns…who is going to make my posts then? Oh no, not you…my giggling sisters…..

ThanKwee said...

LOL Kirsi!

I am literally laughing out loud..

oh my.... :))))

ThanKwee said...

I wonder if Jimm will be all embarrassed too? Or if he'll be em bare assed?

Ana Banana said...

I would like to see his bare ass once and for all! Even a picture of his face would do! I bet Kirsi knows what he looks like...I think they have been swapping more than a little innuendo.

Ana Banana said...

and don't be shy, Kirsi...we will help you through it while we munch on our popcorn.

Kelly said...

Ana's~You are both right, I think....

Ana Banana said...

and I'm still waiting for the grand finale! bare assed after the zoo and the movie! or are we down to just the bare ass, forget the zoo and the movie.

Ana Banana said...

yes, we are right. You know darn well what they've been doing behind the scenes! We only see a little bit here! unfortunate as it is! hahahahaha!

okjimm said...

Hi, honey, I'm home! How was your day?

oh, Hi Joann..Kelly..Ana..how are you guys?

Wowsers, that sure is a lotta popcorn! Are you guys going to a show or something?

Oh, A romantic comedy.

No. But thanks for asking. I think Kirsi and I were just going to stay in...I don't know...play scrabble...or something. Kirsi was talking about a new game she wants to play.

Hey, Kirsi..why don't I run out and get us a pizza...what would you like on it?

Just cheese? Oh, Lots of cheese! And extra sauce! Ok. I might have a beer while I wait for the cheese to melt. I'll be right back. Night girls!!

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Oh Jimmmm!!!!

You’re home….pizza??!!!

Usually you just say that go to bed….

okjimm said...

I know...but the sisters were here and I wanted to be on my best manners. I see that AnaJ is learning finnish...I went looking for books about Finland at the library last week....the Oshkosh library is very light on the subject and so are the book store....I hate to buy stuff on line....I'm going to order from Barnes&Noble...or have the kids find it for me. AnaJ what was the youtube site....I guess I have never 'heard' finnish. I had a good day. I will have a good night.

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

OMG!!! Hope it’s not good bye, when you hear finnish....oh I’m sure it sound so crazy....help me god...I'm afraid he will never come back....

okjimm said...

Finnish the language. Ha! You break me up!!! when I was younger, I had a Swedish doctor....for three years I never understood a word....but he was a great doctor!!

but let's get some sleep. I feel guilty when you stay up this late.

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

I am sleeping...and dreaming already...hyvää yötä!!!!

okjimm said...

aina

Did the sister make cheese popcorn?

ThanKwee said...

Damn, I was just going to pop another batch of popcorn and then Jimm tells Kirsi to go to sleep... go to sleep... go to bed... go to sleep....

Party pooper!

Ana Banana said...

yes, Anajo, it's called censorship! You know very well that Kirsi is not going to bed. "Let us get some sleep" code for: meet me in email for more fun.

ThanKwee said...

Aha! Thank you Ana.. now I know what "go to sleep" means... tee hee..

OKJimm... It dawned on me that I failed to give you the link to the youtube Finnish lessons..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45thdX1zJso

jimm said...

ah..my Ana sisters....you are both so beautiful....and so awesome...silly and wise

I cannot begin to tell you...both...how much you mean to me

I was reading Kelly's page....and it was just too real... too painful .i couldn't look at it anymore.....but the real deal is....i don't think you guys...or Kirsi or Kelly realize how dark and lost I felt...for so long.....and I think you guys like me.....but I don't think any of you realize how you have - saved me. made me believe that the real
measure of a man is not how much he can love, but how much he is loved. ( I think I stole that from the wizard of ozh movie)

Rakastan sinua y'all

shhh...Kirsi is sleeping

&&& tomorrow will be a perfect day

okjimm said...

AnaJ....thanks for the link....now I can learn how to say--'excuse me, where are the restrooms' in Finnish....you never know when that may be helpful when traveling

obtuse jimm said...

oh, yah....'tee hee..'


does that rhyme with Than Kwee


I'm not dumb...just obtuse! :)

Ana Banana said...

awwww...you've gone and done it again okjimm...made me believe in the sweetness of softness of men!

Kelly said...

Aaw,.....Jimm....Only light hearted stuff for now on...But it is better to get it out than to keep it all in....imagine how dark my darkest days were...I am now and have been for a little while, stepping into the light, but I still have a little teeny bit more to go...and it will be easier with all you all being there for me!!!

I'm gonna LET THE SUNSHINE IN.......The sun...shine...in....

{you know the song....sng it with me...lol}

toot-a-loo

Kelly said...

Oops, but sing it low, Kiris is sleeping....

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Thank you my beloved sisters for being you...

And Jimm, you are incredible...I love you

Your singing reminds me an other song...so I start my day sinning...
