Easter is upon us, and today the sun went into hiding – which I suppose is rather appropriate on Good Friday (which in Swedish, by the way, is called “Long” Friday).
4 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
Gospel of Luke, chapter 23

My brother is coming for a couple of days and I’ll be busy “off line” at least for tomorrow (Saturday).
Both Good Friday and Easter Monday are official public holidays in Sweden (marked red in the calendar). This year Easter Monday coincides with 1st April. Remains to be seen how that will work out for me, as 1st April is also set as the date for my shift to the new broadband cable, and a new internet provider. I do hope it will not all just turn out to be a Big Joke!
In any case, there will no doubt be a bit of disruption during the actual deconnecting and reconnecting myself and my various appliances. I also bought a new router so that’s another wild card in the game.
Whether I’ll try it on Monday or wait until Tuesday might depend on whether I find myself still connected to the old system on Monday, or not.
Wish me luck!
Happy Easter, Everyone!
