Wednesday Write Up

 


Hello!!!

I have a couple of  questions for you.

Where has this week gone?
Monday came and went before I
realized that I did not post on Mon-
day.

Where has this month gone? Seems
like forever ago since school started.

I can't keep up!

Update on the illnesses. On top of
what we had been dealing with, both
of us ended up with the stomach flu!!
No idea how that happened, we kinda
stay away frome each other when we
are sick. When it rains it pours.
We are over that now and hopefully
we are finished with being sick!

Now back to catching up on all the
stuff  we are behind on from home.





A little birdie told me that we are
supposed to have a seasonal change
come Friday.
Mother Nature must have missed
that memo.

It has been so HOT and humid this
week, it will not seem like Fall here
for several days. Very tired of being
HOT, so ready for cooler temps and
cool weather clothes.

What is up with everyone else?? I'll
be back tomorrow to see everyone.

See you Monday and hopefully I
won't forget to post.   :)

Hello All!

I must apologize for being
so far behind.
We have been under the weather
off and on for a couple of weeks
and let me tell you, I am tired of
it!!
Mine is mostly allergies but Mr.
Ken has had sinus infection from
you know where and then he had
a bad reaction to his antibiotic.
when it rains it pours.


 

Let's move on to more fun things.
For our last day trip of vacation we
went to a little town that is touted as
"Little Sweden." Lindsborg, Kansas.

Lindsborg is small town living but
boasts a "walkable and welcoming"
place to live and or visit. At the last
census 3,500 people made Lindsborg
there home.


 

Valkommen--means "Welcome" in
Swedish.

 
Art along Main Street.


 
Descriptive sign for the art above.

 

More art on Main St. I see I forgot it's
sign.
This is St Lucia. Celebrating the Festival
of Lights. A Swedish celebration on
December 13th.


Heading down Main Street.
 
 
One of the Bed and Breakfast Homes.
Very colorful.

 
Visitor's can rent bicycles to ride
through town. (click on the pick
and you will see it better)

 
Stopped here for lunch. Great food!

 
This was on the menu.

 
My cute lunch date.


Stopped at Trollslanda Toy Store.
It means "dragonfly " in Swedish.
After spending 15 years in Denmark,
the owner brought the feel of a Scandin-
avian toy store to Lindsborg.
I could not resist this picture!


 Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Church.
Erected in 1880.


 
 

 

 

 
This lovely table is in the entry.


 
Beautiful organ. Can only imagine
what this sounds like during a service.

 
These are replicas of the first minister
and church building.
The first church building was built
outside of town on August 18, 1869.
It was so fun to find these on the current
church grounds.
I love old churches but this one touches
my heart because I was raised Lutheran.

 
Our last stop today is the Lutheran college,
Bethany college.



A peek on campus.

Next week we will finish this tour.

Thanks for your patience with my slow
posts. I will get caught up soon!

See you Monday!!

Good evening, after several tries
and many pictures later we have
a post.
Not the initial post I wanted but
sometimes you have to punt and
go with something else.
Fast forward to this past weekend,
we took our annual trip to Grinter
Sunflower Farm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



This is the original field, it
is located south of the bigger
field that we went through.
For a dollar visitors can cut
their own flowers to take
home.
There are 40 acres of sunflowers!
Farmer Ted started planting on
July 9th and they were ready
for viewing at the end of
August.
It is so much fun wandering
through the flowers, some are
taller than I am and some are
still blooming!


See you Monday!
Wednesday hopefully we can
get back to vacation post (s).

Today's post is dedicated to those
who live in Texas especially
Houston.
So much has been said about this
storm and devastation caused.
I am sure that EVERYONE knows
someone in Texas, so let's say extra
prayers, donate money, supplies,
your time or whatever you are able.
These people have a long way to go
before their lives are back to what
they call "normal."

~~~~~~~~


We will be back to regular programming
on Monday. See you then!

Wednesday Write Up--Saturday to Sunday Style

 

Good Morning, I have time now to finally
get Part Two posted.
The main reason that wanted to go to the
Ag Hall was to see this exhibit.


These tags describe the exhibit plus they
had books to look at too!


"Working Aprons."




More detailed ones with needlework and
embroidery on them, the one on the top
right was made from a dish towel.


Lighter weight - Spring aprons.


Gingham checked ones.


"Company aprons."


"Holiday aprons."




More "working aprons."


Of course, we can't leave out "The
Pitmasters."


This gives you an idea of how many
displays they had.
It was great fun looking at all of these
aprons. Many good memories floated
through my head as I looked at these
displays.
All of the women in my life--
my Mom, Grandmas and Mr. Ken's
Mom wore aprons at some time in their
lives. Mr. Ken's Mom was still wearing
them in the 90's. I have my own aprons,
I don't wear them much but do have
them if I need them.
Mr. Ken's Dad gave me my Mother-in-
law's apron which I cherish.


Here is bits and pieces of what this
card says.
"Aprons are more than Kitch. They
symbols of family and motherhood.
The word "Apron" comes from the
French "naperon" a small tablecloth
or napkin, suggesting they have been
worn for centuries to keep from
spilling on ourselves."
Most of these aprons are handcrafted
one-of-a kind aprons.
Click on the pic to enlarge to read
the whole piece.
What are your memories? Do you
wear an apron? Cooking, crafting
or gardening?

See you tomorrow!!
