Colorful morning skies are a true sign that the season is changing in Kuwait.
Sure wish I didn't have rooftop water tanks and satellites blocking my view.
It's still hot during the day and has been very humid for the past week.
But at least temperatures are coming down with highs of 100 during the day and 80 (or less) at night.
For the record, I did not teach the girls at the shelter to crochet. Those who gathered already knew how to do that and are very skillful at watching and learning.
I taught them how to make the Christmas wreath and stocking so they can sell them for pocket money at upcoming holiday bazaars.
These two wreaths were the first ones finished.
They did such a wonderful job.
And every time another girl would finish one, we would all clap and cheer.
All that clapping would send Tula, the shelter's little pomeranian mascot, into a tizzy.
She's the cutest little thing, very lively and loves to steal yarn.
I bought this tote from the girls that is crocheted with plarn.
And this basket which is made using their traditional method of weaving.
They also make lovely rag rugs.
And are sewing other small items, too.
These girls have been through a lot, so while they wait to be repatriated to their country, they are given an opportunity to create and to have a purpose for each day.
Make each day a day of purpose.
Make it meaningful.
Make it count.
I hope you are having a great day!
