Tomorrow is the last sunday before Lent begins, tuesday is the actual day. I will bring you a picture shortly of the buns we eat like crazy these days - The Lent bun. It's a common sweat bun, with a lid cut, stuffed with almondcrumbles, sugar and egg whites, plus whipped cream . So the lid goes on top and some powder sugar on - voila! From sunday to wednesday its carnival and then it all begins, but these buns are actually eaten from second day after christmas...hm.
So tomorrow there will be celebrated mass in church, solo songs and yes, church coffee with these buns and a girl that went to Tanzania for three months as a church volonteer. She will show pictures and tell us about her meetings there.
This week the children had sports holiday from school and we travelled to my mother. The snow was long gone and the weather was mild . They said there would be some rain come evening, perhaps some odd snow in it. We took granny to a nice greek restaurant and then home to the coffee table. I brought a birthday cake with me, finished the same morning actually and some other cookies.

|Birthdaycake.. notice the lack of red rose!!!|
We left six pm, thinking it would pass. We have about 140 kilometres home, usually we make the trip in an hour 45 minutes. We drove into the yard 5 past nine!!!!
It was horrible!! But when we at last crossed the border to our county, it was more rain than snow. Pew!! I drove the worst part, road disappearing frequently, cars passing us and slashing up our entire front, blinded by snow and wind. Sometimes it was hard to see where the road actually ended, I drove like a drunk......scary scary. We changed drivers when we could find somewhere to stop.
|Ohhhhh, take me out of here!!!!|
So we thought there would be no more, just rain . But what was that we found in the morning??
Where was the car? Right, covered in snow. But, I must say, these snowy days have been sunny days as well.
|Needed both brush and scrape and some severe force to even open the doors!!!|
|This is called Ingemars tree, because of the late vicar, he loved it|
Again, friends, drop by in my other blog, would be nice to know what you think. The latest post is all true, no fiction whatsoever!! And now, the chicken roasting in the oven is about to be eaten -saturday night.. God bless you all!!
