On Friday I had time to finish the dresses for the girls- now they will be able to wear them for Shavuot (Jewish harvest festival). For Neomi it had to be very twirly- so for the lowest stripe of the dress I had to use almost 4.5 meters of Fabric! Helen's is a bit less twirly and with my button-maker I made matching buttons. Maybe I will even make matching ponytail holders.
Saturday was a nice day. I got to paint the boards for the stage for the Shavuot festivities. I am not finished yet so I will go back to paint after work. It was nice to be creative, to have people pop in every now and then to take a look, give comments, gossip and supply me with cherries and water. And in the basement was a rehearsal so I even had nice music to listen to.
I will also participate in the dance- this is always fun too.
On Tuesday evening we will have a Shavuot-dinner- traditionally a dinner with loads of cheese - no meat on this holiday (well- this is no problem at all for me, since I don't eat a lot of meat anyway). So in the next days I will be busy with painting, rehearsals, baking and cooking.
On Saturday I had also a nice siesta- sitting outside underneath the pergola with the grapes and passion-fruits, reading my book and drinking a ice-coffee. Helen was sleeping and Neomi played something for herself. I love those peaceful moments.
