A weekend in pictures

A game of "Jewels in the Attic".

Defeating the Elf with such "gifts" as pet snakes, the gift of gab, blue potions and bad breath. It's a neat game we found at a garage sale last year.

A spring concert.

Handbell choir practice. I love the girl standing on the box. Whatever works!

Watching some great international dancing (also some classical piano and jazz/tap). I don't know what nationality they were but I loved them all, especially watching the strength and control of their feet.

Their costumes were beautiful. I particularly love the bells on their ankles. This girl was coloring (henna-ing) her fingertips and feet with a Sharpie before performing. I imagine that lasts longer than henna!

And I got confirmation on two gardening sites. One is building raised beds for me (small, but close to home and nice and sunny) and the other will be having a huge truckload of soil delivered this week that will mean lots and lots and lots of levelling before the May long weekend. Lots of work ahead, but Rosa and I did our happy dances anyway!
