WEDNESDAY

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 11 juni 2013 12:27

Couldn’t get Mom to update my blog yesterday, and she really had a lot of time because it was raining almost all day. She left me alone in Adrienne for several hours and that’s not fun, I get nervous when it rains because sometimes thunder starts and that’s very scary.She had to go in to town (without me ? ) to take care of lots of important business ............bank, and some offices I ‘m not allowed in to ...........what’s up with that ? I know how to behave and never make a fuzz where ever we go.



Mom came home with a new comforter and new duvet ? I didn’t notice anything wrong with the old one, but she claims these are warmer and much prettier..............guess I couldn’t argue about that.


   Today Mom got the TV going, for the first time, why didn’t she do that yesterday when it was raining all day???  I would have felt less lonley while she was out .................oh well


 


Sunday we went to a nice mansion for "FIKA" ( a very important Swedish word I've  learned which means coffee and a sweet )


 


the place was almost deserted because it was raining, but that didn't stop us, it was very quaint.........

there was self serve, hard to choose among all these old fashion stuff. As usual Mom think everything is too small............like itty bitty cups and spoons.....


   


We decided to sit outside on the patio despite the rain. We squeezed in under an umbrella and blankets were provided.



Mom sure enjoyed this cinnamon bun 

   


found a stone cold squirrel,


 


It turned out to a great day after all, and very evening we are invited for supper that Lotta makes, she’s a fabulous cook, and Mom can’t help herself from eating too much. I steal cat food as often as I get a chance .............Mom has an eagle eye so I have to be real sneaky, but I manage to get a mouthful now and than.

Close to Lottas house is big apartment buildings, very typical Swedish living, but what isn’t typical is that this particular one has many sculptures everywhere.
The area is called Midgard 
 
 
 
 
It’s the same artist that have decorated the entire area, and Moms favorite is the rooster on the roof.
 
 
The theme is Norse mythology, and there was 9 worlds and Midgard was one region. Mid =middle + gard= garden, so it's the middle garden or the middle earth and it's the home of the humans. Great name for a community ........
 
       
It's a long time since Mom read aboutt these gods, so she does not remember the stories, but this is Thor with his goats and hammer.............he’s the scary dude that makes the thunder............wish he’ll stop that.

 


This is Freyja, and she was married to a god named Ode, whom she loved deeply, but he left for long journeys, so Freyja cried golden tears for him...


 


There was small sheds where the people kept their bicycles, ( EVERYBODY rides bikes here ) MOm loved the plantings on the roof.


 


Cats on the window sill does not have anything to do with the theme, at least Mom don't think so,

it's real neat though.


 


Don't know anything about this bird either, any of my readers know ?


 


It's almost 2 PM, and we haven't had lunch yet.....................

se you later ..................wet nose kisses to you all..

Funny to know that the face of Ägir in fact is the artist himself, Jan Pol!

Good Morning from Clines Corner where we spent the night. It has been raining all night and from what I can see it looks like it will continue all day too. I don't mind the rain at night it's kind of soothing to listen to, but it sure puts a damper o...
