TUESDAY MORNING

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 27 augusti 2013 08:00

Waking up to a new day in paradise and as promised I will now tell you about the church visit. This is the church Mom went to as a small puppy and where she had her confirmation.She’s not much into church stuff, but thinks this is the most beautiful church in Sweden.............at least on the outside. The stuff inside used to scare her to death when she was real little.
 All this time with mom I’ve been listening real carefully to find some juicy scandalous stuff about her......( stuff that can be used as blackmail for treats ) I’ve just about given up...............until I heard this. During bible studies  she used to rip pages from the holy book and fold birds !!!!  Now THAT”S bad...............now I need too do something as bad so I can go to the same place as her, because there’s no way she’ll go to heaven after that stunt ? don't know what yet, but I’ll figure something out..............or is redemption possible for her ?
 
 
This church has a history from 1324 when the first one was built on this place. Already in 1386 it was replaced by a larger one.The third church on this place was built 1507 and contained the four Gothic arches we see today. In 1799  the parish had grown (you where forced to go to church back than) so two side isles was added and the style changed to neo-classical. 1916 a restoration was made and high altar was moved to the original position ...................I have to admit it’s a real stately building.
 
The interior underwent the most comprehensive restoration 1963-64, and the gray paint was changed to white, the blue stained glass window and white paint sure made it a lot brighter and cheerier
 
The stuff that scared mom as a puppy is still there but didn’t appear as frightening anymore ? The triptych dates from the 15th century, and from left to right it is, St.Margaret, St.Sebastian, St.Olav, St.The Holy Trinity, St.Martin of Tours, St.Birgitta, and St.Lawrence.............wonder what Sebastian did deserving such bloody beating ?
 
 
 
The pulpit is from 1648 and it's from here the preacher held his sermons about redemption..........and ?????
 
 
When Mom was a puppy, she thought the head of John the Baptist on a plate was the most terrifying object in the entire church, but she remembered red  blood on it too ? maybe that was her imagination ?? I still think it looks spooky ............and like all other sculptures....it's very old.........
 
 
St.George, killing the dragon and the princess..............was sitting on a window sill and sometimes Mom sat so close to it so she fantasized it moving, George raising the sword and killing the dragon that squirmed and begged for mercy ............guess she wasn’t listening much to the sermon  huh ?
 
 
Madonna with child from 15th century, all these statues with missing limbs sure made imagination run wild in a little puppy brain..........(made sermons seem shorter ) but sleep at night harder...........
 
 
This is the oldest statue in the church. It's from the 12th century and made of walnut. The child, Jesus that Mary should hold in her arms is missing, and so is her hands........ (maybe Jesus took her arms with him when he left ) looks like blood pouring from where the hands that are missing...........well it did when Mom was 5.....  
 
 
Every school year Mom and her classmates sang hymns and got their grades before the summer brake started...............this is the song..........
 
where are my classmates ??????
 
 
There’s a wood bridge over the river, and Mom and her friends used to climb down and sit on the pillar under the bridge and fish........(no fishing allowed, or at least not without license, fish hatchery loaded with salmon was up the river. Once a year it was supposed to be a secret when they let the fish down the river..).... I peeked over the edge, and I’m now convinced..........Mom was a nutcase..
 
 
 
 This bridge was build 1737 and is Sweden’s oldest and longest bridge built of wood 133 meter
   
 
The graffiti looked pretty good I thought,and it was well made, but of course it was misplaced .............common sense says you don’t do this on a historic monument............oh well.....
 
 
The nature in this area is gorgeous, lucky Mom that grew up very close to all this beauty ............
       
 
the birds are starting their migration south...................a little reminder to Mom .............we are going too real soon ..........right ?
 
 
 
 
 
 This is a picture borrowed from her friend Vanja. It’s interesting since you hardly ever see this anymore, but this was the way hay was dried when Mom was little, you had a pitchfork and tossed the hay up on wooden bars. When dry it was loaded in a big wagon and you got a ride on top of it, either behind a horse or a tractor, than unload it all into a small storage barn. Nowadays a huge machine spits out giant balls wrapped up in plastic. It looks like big marshmallows on the fields..............easier for the farmer, but more fun for the puppies in the old days
 
 
 
 Finally here’s a few more pictures of the old church town, that dates back to the 1600s, and was used for staying overnight when forced to visit church every Sunday. If you lived too far away every other Sunday was ok. ................today they’re used in summer as recreation stay and parties............if this walls could talk ..........NOT says Mom
 
     
 
Todays flower pictures..............soon this will all be covered with snow !!!!
 
       
 
After I helped Mom out of bed and had my breakfast and batroombreak, it's time for another nap............while Mom have coffee and write on my blog..............Not fair says Mom, she says I'm supposed to help !!!.......................I am in a subliminal way ....  
    
 
wet kisses to all..............

Verkligen fina skildringar lär mig en hel del. Gäller bara att komma ihåg också. Har du inte kallt på morgonen här är det 7 grader vid 06.

Ha en fin dag båda två

jo Tack, det är ganska kallt på morronen, men under täcket är det inga problem, och det blir fort varmt när jag eldar på med gasolen och dricker kaffet.........

En så vacker kyrka - men jag tycker också att en del grejer inuti den ser rätt läbbiga ut!
Förresten är jag säker på att din matte blir förlåten för det där med fåglar av bibelblad, om hon ber snällt! Hon kanske kan idka lite utpressning annars mot den högre makten - för om hon INTE får förlåtelse kanske du blir tvungen att bita nån eller så, för att säkert få följa med henne...
Och då blir det ju väldigt synd om den som blir biten, kanske får blodförgiftning också...

Tack snälla Kasper för din smarta ide, nu ska jag se till att matte ber om förlåtelse, för jag vill ju inte bita någon............men om jag måste så .....blötpussar

Jag tror nog att ni kommer till samma ställe! Att vika fåglar anses nog som god smak och gott uppförande. Hon rullade i alla fall inte cigaretter av det tunna pappret... Kramis!

Hej, vilket långväga besök jag fick på min blogg, tack för din hälsning. Om jag förstår saken rätt så är du på Sverigebesök för närvarande? Uppe i Skellefteå? Hur känner du till Snöån? Jag är där ibland, vi brukar handla hos slaktaren i Dala-Järna och då blir det gärna en hundpromenad i de vackra omgivningarna vid kvarnen där.
Sommaren är snäll med oss i år, fortfarande sommartemperaturer men jag längtar till höstens svalka.
En kompis här i byn har släktingar i Florida och åker dit på semester under november månad.
Ha det gott!

Först vill jag be om ursäkt för min slöa matte som inte sett till att vi hälsat på din blogg förrän nu , hon skyller på att det är MYCKET nu *suck*
Jättefina sommriga bilder din matte tagit !
Finns inget finare än en svensk sommar tycker jag och min matte.
Så busig din matte var när hon var liten ( göra pappers svalor av bibeln) *fniss*

Driving south towards Vienna in scorching hot weather Mom got sleepy very quickly so when she spotted a camp she quickly pulled in and parked. It wasn't many miles left and she still hasn't figured out how to drive avoiding the zones Lucy weren't all...

This morning we got up early as usual and the plan was to make it to Vienna by the evening but first Mom wanted to visit the Punkva caves that are located a little bit north of a city named Brno. Mom has now named Brno the city with the worst roads e...

Yesterday when we got back from the city we were both totally exhausted, Mom can't understand why I should be since I was riding in the carriage the entire time? Well, let me tell you even if I feel rather safe in my spot it's impossible to take naps...

Early rise as usual and watching the sunrise over the river Vltava.............nope, that's not a misspelling.      Remeber yesterday when Mom said, "we're driving straight to Prague on highways"? well, she tried to change that when she saw t...
