So much sunshine in a weekend!

At last after so much rain we had a gorgeous bright weekend!
On Friday evening we had a performance and it went exceptionally well!
And that was because inspite the fact that the lights and music went out twice during the performance and we continued acting and singing without music, the audience still applauded us warmly and told us how much they enjoyed the play!That is so rewarding! Especially because we are amateurs and we act for free and only for charity. It was fun too that after many many years I met a fellow classmate from Primary school! How time flies!

Then on Saturday we walked Barca at the foggy sea front...
 ...looking at the little sailors at sea....
 ...and ended up drinking tsipouro in "Volos" restaurant.
I had known the chef there since I was a student at University. Unfortunately Dimitris died in summer and in that bright sunshine we drank tsipouro and said goodbye to him! Isn't it the best way to say goodbye to someone?
Memories always blur my eyes...
...but soon I came to think that in the end life is beautiful...no matter how much we hurt....
Then we went to collect sea glass at that tiny beach at the sea front...






And although it was a weekend filled with shadow puppet performances and theatrical performances and art gallery exhibitions and lots of Christmas bazaars finally we decided to relax!
So we stayed in (apart from walking Barca again and again).
We simply watched movies (Forthnet and Nova gave us a free month so we are taking advantage of it!), did some more Christmas decorating (that will appear on another blogpost), read some craft magazines (I only bought two this Christmas!),
 and I made some felt ornaments for the school bazaar we will be having this Wednesday.


Have a nice week!

Congratulations on your successful performance, Ariadne! You have found beautiful sea glass (I was also lucky on the beach three days ago!). I smiled upon seeing the craft magazines as I have been working on international press distribution for 37 years and those were titles I used to handle! I also like your felt decorations. Good luck with the bazaar!!!!
