A WEEKLY TREK TO LIDL........
Lidl's? What is that?? It is the little 'local' grocery store where we walk to about once a week for in-between things like maito and leipa (bread and milk). It is about a 20 minute walk from the asuntola. Good exercise and we enjoy it. Today is turning out to be a really nice day.....NO rain. We have had rain for the
last week. Cold and wet....not fun!! We decided we would walk to the Posti and Lidl....we had a couple of things that needed to be mailed.
We left about 9:45 a.m. just as the sun was 'coming up'!! (See the first picture......you can see it peeking out behind the heavy fog we had).
We decided to take pictures of our 'usual' walking paths we go on to get there. Well traveled by a lot of people....and especially today. With the 'nice' weather it seems that lots of people had the same idea.
Yup......there are others out doing their errands and taking their walks. I can't remember when we have seen so many people out. This is the path from the Posti to Lidl's. The torri was open and running by the Posti today. I bought a large handmade wooden spoon to use for dipping soup from the pot. It was a fun little torri!
So when we got to Lidl's, we went to the
'return' for the plastic bottles that they have. It is a neat little gadget!
As we got back to the temple, the sun was just behind the steeple. That means it is at the highest peak and starting to set already!!
Can you believe this last picture was taken at about 11:15 a.m. We do enjoy our 4 - 5 hours of daylight at this time of the year! :-)
