Hello dear readers,
At the Daycare Center for the Elderly, I'm helping make miniature flower pots as "Thank you" gifts for the wonderful, kind, and dedicated members of the staff. These gifts have to be ready for the giveaway on Purim. 11 out of about 20 little flower pots are almost ready. There are only 3 days of work at the center before Purim and a lot to be accomplished. Making kits at home consumes a great deal of my time.
To make the flower heads I followed my own tutorial (https://drorasminimundo.blogspot.com/2017/03/pansies-tutorial.html)
This is a sample of what each kit contains. Before assembling the flowers and leaves cut-outs they have to receive a second touch of paint.
Purim is a cheerful Jewish feast in memory of the liberation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia. The Scroll of Esther in the Bible tells the story of Purim. Traditionally it's a fun time for carnivals and masquerades, sending sweet treats to the poor, and most importantly, reading the Scroll of Esther aloud.
Drora is in bed now so I can openly express my opinion about the Israel Post authorities. They employ stupid morons. One of these morons wrote by hand, in bold letters, and in Hebrew "לא נדרש" (In English it means "not been claimed"). How on earth could it be claimed if they didn't notify Drora that the parcel arrived? Only after about THREE months and a thorough investigation, the parcel was found. I am furious!!
Please, Baalatova, Don't put a spell on the Iaraeli Post Authorities, just make them more efficient in the future. Let me look again at what my dear mum Birgit sent. I love the beautiful glass bird and hope Drora will find an excellent place to display it. Oh, look Baalatova, the delicious marzipan, and chocolates disappeared already.
Don't worry my dear boy, these delicious, luckily still edible, treats have not completely disappeared, they are safely hidden on Drora's hips. Personally, I prefer a warm bowl of calorie-free eyeball soup.
BTW, I'm confiscating the lunchbox. It will serve as a safe for my spell books and other witchy items.
Baalatova, Solly, and Drora thank you from the bottom of their heart, for your gifts, your patience, and most of all for being our friends.
For Valentine' Day, Dana, my sweet (already 17 years old) great-granddaughter gifted me a packet of edible miniatures - adorable tiny bunny chocolates. These too, have long ago disappeared to "safety on my hips".
I wish you all, dear readers, a pleasant weekend with blessings.
