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
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
Valkommen--means "Welcome" in
Art along Main Street.
Descriptive sign for the art above.
More art on Main St. I see I forgot it's
This is St Lucia. Celebrating the Festival
of Lights. A Swedish celebration on
Heading down Main Street.
One of the Bed and Breakfast Homes.
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
I love old churches but this one touches
my heart because I was raised Lutheran.
Our last stop today is the Lutheran 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!!

The church is awesome with its great bell tower. I always love small white country churches.
