Gifts from Spain

 Hello dear friends,

It's amazing how time flies away so fast. It's almost the end of November and this is probably going to be my one and only post this month. It's not because I've been lazy, on the contrary, I'm kept fully occupied at the Day Center three days a week now and find it worth my while. 

Last week a parcel received from a most generous person in Blogland, Ricardo, arrived just in time for our Hannukka holidays which start the day after tomorrow, on Sunday, 28 November.  Surprisingly among the wonderful contents are Hannukka items made especially for me. I'm overwhelmed with emotion imagining how thoughtful and considerate Ricardo was in taking the time to investigate our traditions and make something out of the way just for me.

Dear Ricardo. it was a very sad day for me when I heard that Montserrat Caballe passed away.  I loved listening to her amazing voice.  She was one of the greatest opera singers in the world and I'm pleased to see that Montserrat is commemorated with stamps in her memory.

When it comes to shrinking books and packages Ricardo is the specialist.  

Hannukkah items, especially made for me.  The original box must have held 44 candles to last all eight nights of this holiday.

Thank you, dear Ricardo, for your wonderful gifts and, above all for including me as your friend.

The ladies at the Day Center prefer knitting instead of creating miniatures.  I now fully realize how blessed I am to have a good sight and steady hands which enable me to continue crafting at my age.  It's something that I took for granted before.  The two days I volunteered for turned out to be three but believe me I am very happy to be there.  The new favorite neck warmers we made are all sold out.  

My youngest, 3 years old, adorable great-grandchild is happy with the new bunny neckwarmer that I made for her.

We still have one hour for miniature every Tuesday.  I showed how to make planters from egg-carton.  The planters turned out fairly good for beginners.  Next Tuesday I'll show them how to make the plants.

I wish you all a lovely weekend to enjoy and blessings.
