Recently we took a walk in a wonderful fall
weather at Watch Hill,
Rhode Island. We strolled along the shore to a fort at the end
of the peninsula.
There are nice places like this to visit fairly close by
although we have not
managed to visit many of them yet. You find your way to those
you have guests visiting for a few days. So far we have not had
many visitors in
Dexter or here in Preston.
This year began in Ísthammar at the home of
Tove, Mattias and Emil, where we
had a fantastic Christmas and New Year celebration together.
Linn and Erik were supposed to be there too but they got stuck
with a serious cold. We came to our homeland once more in July
on vacation and
got to see Tove and Linn participate in a swimming race in a
river in Vansbro while
the rain poured down… And we spent a couple of days with Ulf’s
parents in Falun and had a dinner
with Ulf’s family at Ulf’s brother’s Lars and his Barbro. You
appreciate the warmth from everybody
we met. Before the trip to Sweden we spent a week in Copenhagen
with Linn and Erik. It was a
fantastic week with sun, high summer heat and the beginning of
the jazz festival.
Ann-Kristin finished her four-year Feldenkrais
training in May and now she is Guild Certified Feldenkrais
Practitioner. Ulf is still at Pfizer after big changes resulting
from the acquisition of another big pharmaceutical company.
The first adventure this year was a trip to
Jenny in New Orleans during Mardi Gras in February. We had
numerous great food experiences and stimulating visions during
the all week parades. The week was rounded off with a fun and
crazy evening at Bourbon Street.
But the happiest part of the year must be that
we have been married for 35 years. We celebrated this with four
days of playing around in New York. We stayed at Leo House,
where we had won three nights stay in a charity raffle. We went
to all free entertainments we could find... Currently we are
preparing for continued celebration – on December 10th we are
off for Buenos Aires, where we might stretch our legs in a
Ulf went on a fishing trip this year too, this
time to Ontario. The same group as usual, great time with lots
of fish on the dinner table some caught in torrential rain…
We also attended the September Pizzie party in
New Jersey, representing Sweden in yellow and blue with knee
bobbles – what a sight! We had the pleasure to enjoyed a
wonderful Thanksgiving weekend there as well.
This Christmas we will be staying by ourselves
in Preston. For the New Year will be in Detroit, Jenny Pizzie is
having her wedding there January first.
We wish you a peaceful Holiday.
