Cinnamon, honey, lemon, tree-bark syrup, apple cider vinegar… and best of all— PRAYER! It works! I feel better today. Praise the Lord!
Let me give you some highlights from the farm I visited and some pictures from the trip back to Vaggeryd. Take into consideration that my pictures are taken from behind windows—from inside a house, a car and a train. And most of the pictures I take “on the move”!
This is called jordkällare, a special room built inside a mound to keep food from spoiling. It keeps a level temperature. Literally translated it is “soil basement.” This was used on the farms back in the days when there were no refrigerators. My friend Miriam uses her “jordkällare” to keep all her jars of different kinds of preserves.
These are the last pick of apples for the season. And here comes the last rose from her yard.
Miriam’s kitchen window, and a look out of her dining room window. You can see her old-time basement on the right.
Monday, after a most delicious lunch, Miriam drove me to Skövde so I could take the train back. Let’s look at some pictures taken from the front seat window of the car.
A big tractor taking up most of the road.
Swedish marshmallows! Hay for the winter!
Beautiful trees line the road by the farm.
We turn into a bigger road, 17 kilometer from Skövde (10 miles).
Typical for most Swedish towns is the Swedish Church.
There was beautiful scenery to enjoy on the train ride but hard to capture because of the high-speed travel.
Back at the station by the lake, oh so beautiful!
In the evening we had the Prayer Group at “our” house. But I was already struck by whatever virus I picked up on the trip. It was still wonderful to be at the prayer meeting.
I’ll close for today with a picture of Dad’s wife Mary. She is at school right now. Yesterday Mary was very excited because of 40 questions on a test she only missed 4! Slowly but surely María Débora is learning Swedish!
