This is my latest accomplishment, so to speak. I’m happy that I’ve been able to get Mary to start fulfilling her dream of many years—to write a book! Dad is helping her. She dictates and he writes. Then I will edit.
Now, let me show you some pictures from a Swedish home we visited one evening.
Christmas is right around the corner. But first comes the Advent time, when each Sunday you burn a candle. This is the Advent candle holder. Four Sundays before Christmas you light one candle. Three Sundays before you light two candles. Two Sundays before you light three candles. Then on the last Sundays before Christmas you light all four candles.

We visited Mirjam, and excellent piano-player, so we had our own private concert. And even my sister Agneta decided to play with her. It was fun.
Mirjam’s father had been a carver in wood. She had many beautiful pieces as memories. Here are two of them. My friend Lynn should appreciate them. She’s a wood-carver.
Like in the home I visited in Tidan, Mirjam also has slippers to offer the guests.
What is so beautiful in Sweden are the window sills. People don’t pull down their blinds so you can appreciate it while walking or driving down the street. I love it!
The sun is breaking through the clouds. There will be no more visits to a beautiful home. I have promised Dad and Mary to give them whatever help they need before I leave (on Saturday). They need lots of instructions on the use of computers. It’s not so easy for someone 90+ to get things to stick in their head. I’m 90- but it takes me time. I have to write the steps for every new thing I learn.
Today I hope to learn new things. My brother-in-law Ola has promised to teach me what he knows about setting up a web page. I’m excited. I need to learn as much as possible. So, “see” you tomorrow!
