I was at the hospital today for my hip check up. To my big surprise they let me in almost fifteen minutes earlier than the appointment time and I was out of the hospital before I was supposed to be there! My doctor was very pleased with how I healed after the surgery, in fact he was so pleased that I´m going to start work on Monday full time. But I´m not going to have my ordinary job just yet, the paint sacks are a bit to heavy for that.
They have this little Art/antique and crafts shop in Varnhem. Naturally it was closed.
I think this is an old school building. It´s something else nowdays though.
I wanted to visit my favourite gardencentre on my way home and at the same time visit Varnhems monestary church that is built just nearby the gardencentre.
This is a café right beside the church. It smelled wonderful of new baked bunns :-)
I think this is a really beautiful church.
There were lots of nice things to buy at the gardencentre and I almost came home with a magnolia (even if I´m terrified that I´m going to get slugs from almost anything I buy nowdays). But I looked at the roots and they were cut to get the tree up from the ground and placed in a sack. Never by a magnolia with cut roots, they usually have a bleak future ahead. So I only bought two plants for my pond, one of them is a red water lily. After sinking down the pot with the water lily my pond now is anything but clear :-) :-)
The first church built here was a tree church around 1040 but was later replaced with a stone church. But they nowdays has proof that christians has lived here since the ninth century. They started to build the monastery around 1150 but it was totally destroyed in a fire 1234. This is the berrial place for many of Swedens first kings and other very important people. 1527 the state took the monastery and church since we then had left catholisism. In those days we were konstant in war with the danes and they burned down the monastery buildings 1566. Unfortunally it was closed and wouldn´t open for an hour when I was there and I wanted to go home :-)
I´m getting a new computor soon too :-) I really wanted to have a Mac, but those costs a lot of money and I do need a new refidgerator and a washing mashine too and it would be nice to buy a more advanced camera. My brother knows this and always looks out for different specials on things I need so I can get them cheaper, I love my oldest brother :-) Today he sent me a mail that showed that my phone company has a special on a lap top. I don´t know what things like this can cost in Your countries, but this is cheap over here. I´ll have to pay 100 swedish kronor / month (around 13,8 US dollars) for the computor for the comming 36 months and for the mobile broadband
249 swedish kronor/ month (around 34,6 US dollars). I´ve checked again and the price on the broadband is actually 179 Swedish kronor ( 24,9 US dollars).
The surroundings by the church is rather nice don´t You think?
Well now I have a couple of more days of free time at home, I must win a couple of millions at the lottery :-) :-) :-) I´ve gotten used to being home now :-) :-) But for now I´making a pot of tea.
Have a great day now!
