me on Monday

waving to you all with my nicely henna adorned hand


I’ve often thought about having one when I see the stalls at fairs and finally did when I had a gap between shows and there was no queue at the booth.  It took me longer to browse her photos and choose a design than it did for her to draw – she was so adept and maintaining pressure on the bag and keeping the pattern flowing (a lot like icing really).  Then I had to not bend my hand and keep it safe for 20 minutes (when I wondered why I gave her my right hand).  Then picking off the dried bits of henna was fun.  The dye darkened over 24 hours and now I keep catching a glimpse of the pattern on my hand – it should last for 2 weeks.

It was the last weekend of the Fringe and I finished in style with an amazing Quebec based acrobatic troupe – just watching them exhausted me.

Then my favourite comedian – Adam Hills, with the added interest that he has a sign language interpreter for his Sunday shows. Fun to watch the signs as well as listen to him.

A quiet week ahead but plenty to do with crochet projects and tidying the garden.  Hope you all have a good one.

That is lovely. I haven't seen anywhere locally where I could get that done. Quebec based acrobatic troupe?! Oh do tell more. Hope you have a great week ahead.

The henna design is lovely. I once had a student who came to school after a religious holiday with the most beautiful henna designs all over her arms and hands.

It's beautiful! We saw the henna stalls at our Mela this weekend and TSO was very tempted.

Have a great week Helena. I suspect you are going to get some admiring glances
