The sunshine makes me happy.

Although we are already in November and Christmas will be here so so soon (and I have prepared nothing yet!) we are having such great weather, warmth and sunshine that I can't stay at home! Why should I anyway?
Last weekend my cousin from Athens was visiting so we went around a lot.
Then during the whole week I found all kinds of distractions not to do chores at home.
Like going for coffee with friends, and to my ceramics class.
Taking advantage of the weather the school went to an exhibition of copies of Las Incantadas , the stolen statues of Thessaloniki now residing at the Louvre,
 beautiful Ariadne among them!
We also saw ancient Greek musical instruments
 and ancient Greek inventions,
some of which were really very interesting like this type of chess above.
We also did an earthquake preparedness test at school and went to the park too.
This weekend we did so much again,
I attended a fable presentation by the storytelling group Lupus in fabula which was excellent,
had coffee with friends,a meeting with family,
hubby and I also went to an exhibition at the Archaeological Museum.
We saw the art of Haida. Haida is a tribe living at some islands off the west coast of Canada. Their art is so different from ours but so interesting.

 Of course coffee at the seafront is a must on such days when cars are not allowed at Nikis Avenue and you can have all the sea front to yourself along with thousands of other people!


 I hope you had a great weekend!
