It was on May 17, 1814 that Norway's constitution was signed which made Norway a free and independent nation. So today we celebrate their independence! Beth is a Norwegian and VERY proud of this! The picture above is of me sitting with her first spinning wheel that was given to her when she was 10 years old. It belonged to her Great Grandma Lahren. Her grandmother brought it to the states from Norway when she was 19 years old. That would make this wheel 121 years old and Beth still uses it. Beth does not think it was new when her grandmother brought it to the states so it may even be older than that.
So instead of dressing up in costume today I thought it would be nice just to sit by something from Norway!
Tonight -- Lutefisk and Lefse! I don't have a clue what that is -- but I guess I will find out!
Later -- Remington -- Happy "Syttende Mai" -- Ut!
