Hard to believe that tomorrow will be the first day of the very last month of 2015.
I stopped by The Secret Garden this morning to do some composting and always check on all our crochet and kids crafts that are out there.
Saturday a week ago we did twig trees with the children (and some moms) and the week before that it was bird feeders using papertowel and toilet paper rolls with peanut butter and birdseed.
Afterwards, I met my good friend, Melissa, for a nice hour long walk along the corniche. Such lovely weather and the moon to guide us. (Can you spot it there just under the palm fronds?)
I was just telling Melissa about a lovely young lady named Jo who helps take care of all the feral kitties in this area and lo and behold if we didn't run into her.
Sadly, she returns to the UK in 2 days after being here many years and I know everyone will miss her so much. She has worked tirelessly to help trap/neuter/release hundreds of cats. She has named many of them and they know her so well. Kuwait truly is losing a kind, compassionate person.
After our walk, we stopped by an open House at Zeri Crafts.
Such a nice atmosphere and homemade goodies to sample along with a cup of hot ginger tea.
I especially loved seeing and hearing about the photography display entitled Artisan Hands that tells the stories of 6 people from Kuwait, all in their 70's now, who made a living years ago through their specialized handicrafts, a tradition of handmade that unfortunately is lost in this technological age.
I for one intend to keep handmade alive as long as I can.
It's Monday and the start of a new week for most of you out there. Hope it's a good one!
