Let me take you on a “stroll” through Vaggeryd, from the Casa Blanca (White House), as Dad calls it, to the store. My mission was to buy Marabou chocolate for my daughter and Cactus Läkerol pastilles that my grandkids love, especially David and Sarah.
This is a sunny day so we had to take advantage of it. The weather has been rainy and cold. We don’t have a car, so it has to be a walk. Dad, my 94-year-old father, was gracious to push the wheelchair. It should be the other was around.
Vaggeryd is a town with about 5.000 people. The walk to the store might be one kilometer. In the background of the next picture you can see that they are building a “highrise.” There are two apartment buildings under construction.
If you read my blogs last year some information and pictures might be repetitive. Sorry about that! Here come a coulple of pictures of the most popular color for houses: yellow!
Following are some of the pictures I took on our stroll to the store.
This is the white house where my sister Agneta and her husband Ola live. On the second floor is where Dad and Mary live and where I have been staying.
Last year we had many beautiful days and I could walk down to the lake. This year has been different, maybe because I’ve had more work and more pain, but today I made it down to the lake.
I love this view I can get through an open arch-way in a house by the lake.
My sister has methodically been “killing” some trees which root system have taken over the yard. They are slowly dying (on the right), but not the beautiful tree farther down the street.
Back at the house I was welcomed by Misssan.
That’s it for my big adventure of the day! Now it’s back to business. I’ve been working on a lesson about Nicodemus and the visit with Jesus that changed his life. It’s got pictures to color and pictures to use as flash-cards as well as a PowerPoint.
If you speak Spanish and would like to see them, they will be in hermanamargarita.com under Halloween.
May you have a good rest of the week!
