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..

I know Lena, that's what I thought too, but Mom is impulsive and wanted one of those fluffy downy quilts, and the duvet looks very nice, much nicer than the Hawaii dancing girl sheets from 40 years ago.

Coola skulpturer och målningar. Kanske fåglarna är Odens korpar Hugin och Munin, tyckte där var två.
Vad taskigt att lämna dig själv men kanske det behövs ibland hur trist det än är!
Du överlistar nog matte så att du kan sno lite kattmat då och då, du är ju smart!

jo Tack, Adrienne är mysig även om hon har många år på nacken. Här I Västervik finns mycket vackert att titta på. Att ett vanligt bostadsområde har dekorerats med så mycket konst, tycker vi är skithäftigt.
Vi har stått stilla mycket länge nu, och dett börjar faktiskt klia lite I hjulen...... blötpussar

Jättekul att vara med på resan, vi får ju veta massor om landet vi bor i! :D
Festligt med alla mytologiska figurer, nästan så att matte måste läsa mer nånstans, säger hon. :)
Men du, jag tycker verkligen synd om dig som fick stanna i Adrienne ensam, när Tor var ute och dundrade! Hos mig kallar vi honom Åskar, och jag hatar honom!!!

Kul att ha er med, Matte blev också tvungen att läsa på om den gamla asatron, intressant och verkligen kul att ett vanligt bostadsområde har dekorerats med så mycket konst. .......blötpussar

 I wish people would be honest about their WiFi connections so I could update more often. We do have wifi in the car but it's not fast enough to upload pictures, so now we're in a good old Mc Donalds. According to Mom, they do have great coffee. ...

I was sad leaving our great camp with great friends, but they had to leave too since they had jobs to go to. I sure hope we'll see them again. It was raining when we got to Niagara Falls, but after a little nap in the car, it lit up and got sunny a...
