–Varmt välkommen hit–
Weather was miserable. Just miserable. I saw 99F this afternoon. That is 37.2C. Ick. And we had strong winds and very humid. Tomorrow is still very warm but with 60 mph winds. Oh joy.
Had a family reunion today. We always have it on Memorial Day weekend sunday. And we always have it at the Lindsborg Senior Center. This year we had a huge crowd. We are descendants of John and Kristina Train. His name was originally Jan Jansson and she was Kristina Magnusdotter. Now the reunion is called the Train-Malm reunion. And there are many Sjögren descendants there also. We had more food than I have ever seen!! We all introduced ourselves and our connection to who, we review all marriages, deaths, births, weddings, etc. And several had things to share. Very nice afternoon. Afterwards, I washed dishes and one cousin helped. Jay and I cleaned off all the tables, then moved all the chairs while I vacuumed. And we emptied all the trash. I was exhausted. I am president of the reunion. Not by choice.
Afterwards I took Jay for a drive through Elmwood Cemetery where our parents are buried, and many other relatives. Then on my way home I drove through the Smoky Hill Cemetery where John and John and Kristina Train are buried. There are several of her relatives and some Trains and other relatives there. After that I drove through the Falun Cemetery.
Tonite we drove into Salina to eat at Big Cheese Pizza. I truly need no food for the next week after the reunion, but I ‘forced’ myself to eat some pizza!!! You could not pay me to check my blood sugar tonite. It would break my monitor!!!! No bedtime snack tonite for me.
See my day in photos here.
Here is the weather from my birth year.
