Last week ended with Shellys Birthday party... after all the preperations i think the children - all 25 of them - enjoyed the games Rami played with them.. pass the parcel, tug-of-war, potato and spoon race...it was so much fun to watch them and the weather was perfect.


The next day was spent at the beach with some of my parents friends visiting here.. the girls had a ball and we really enjoyed the calm but warm weather and the sand between our toes... :)

And the the week begins again...


This is what i see standing at the bus stop at 6:10am and i just cant stop looking at it... it inspires me..
The suns rays have been quite clear these last few days - so beautiful to watch.


And a surprise parcel this week from sweet Aimee..full of special treasures including fabric from the congo, handmade necklaces from Uganda and the Marshall Islands made by very special women - all these places where Aimee has taught or volunteered - a giraffe ring for Shelly, flea-market finds all in two cigar boxes which i love! Thank you so much for Aimee for this beautiful package.

And a late thank you to other lovely friends for some gorgeous cards - thanks Maditi and Gracia!!!

And our weekend begins...NOW!!! Have a fab one my friends xxx

    Being on the beach is one of the best things I can imagine at the moment...
    I think I can see, why you like this morning-impression..without focussing on what it will be at last you can see a beautiful graphic impression.
    I hope you are fine and can relay a bit!
