Anyway first of all I'd like to thank everyone for their comments in recent blogposts! I try to answer the comments of those people who have e-mails connected to their names, not everyone does!
Also I'd like to thank the visitors through the Madam Samm and !Sew we stitch. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to visit many blogs yet but I will soon.
Let me now show you what kept me busy this week!
We spent a day at school with the fear of the eclipse! A day before the eclipse the Ministry of Education sent us some instructions which obliged us to stay inside the building all the time during the eclipse and not allow the children to look at the sun!
We even had the curtains closed. At some point I had an hour out of the classroom and tried a couple of photos. The sun was blinding of course and I wasn't really looking at what I was photographing. Imagine my surprise to see afterwards that the eclipse is shown somewhere in the building opposite the school. Can you see it?
Vafopoulion Cultural Centre. It was presented by Yiannis Chatzis and it was dedicated to the Thessaloniki writer George Ioannou, a great local writer. Thomas Korovinis and his band sang great songs. And Yiannis Chatzis presented stories of George Ioannou in shadow puppetry.
Etsy Greek Street Team meeting and we made a lovely craft calendar.
Here's the front of my craft calendar.
And here's the back of my calendar.Poppysstuff)
The Wandering Deer for the organization and Olga for showing us how to use the appliances.
Also this week there was a meeting with my Book reading club
So little sleeping and so much reading!
It was fun having coffee with fellow readers at Zogia cafe and meeting old and new friends!
We also had a presentation of Captain Michalis at Malliaris bookstore with the International Friends of Nikos Kazantzakis Society.
Unfortunately due to lack of time we only presented a small part of the book as the talks of the speakers (among them Kostas Zouraris, European Parliament Member and writer) took longer than expected. I hate it when things like that happen. I feel as if people do not acknowledge what we do as a team to make a good presentation or that they don't realise how much effort it takes to prepare a presentation! I loved Kostas Zouraris speech though, it was great, short and to the point).Anyway that unfortunate event was followed by dinner out and that was good!
