I had an interesting outing yesterday. My best friend invited me to visit the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. http://dowse.org.nz/

The staff of the school had a wonderful evening out on Saturday.
We went to an Azian cooking school.
Everything was ready for the cooking!
The session started 6:30 pm.
The instructor/tutor/chef demonstrated
what we had to do to make a perfect meal.
We first made spring rolls.
Then the main meal:
pork, lemon grass and chilli(which I did not use).
On the plate was a cup of rice and fresh lettuce.
It was very tasteful and delicious to eat.
Every morning we open our Restaurant at the
Before School Center.
The table is neatly set!
The kitchen table.
Each girl has a task.
The customers are ready to have breakfast.
We have the best cooks and waiters!
May 13 we, as Soroptimists, came together to make stars.
In the two hours, we made 40 stars.
A view ladies took ribbon home to fold some more.
At that stage, we had 110 stars folded.
Up to date, we are at 200 and there are still in the making.
After school care: Girls made some flowers by using paper and straws.
While house sitting I started a baby throw for little Bea.
As soon as I was back I had to quickly make another jersey for her because the weather was still cold and unpleasant.
In two days I finished this one off.
The last two weeks I have been working on my first handmade cardigan for my first grandchild which is due half December. It is going to be a little girl. Today was the stork party/baby shower.
Wrapped up with fresh flowers
from my garden.

Today was the day that the school’s students started the first of their six enrichment sessions.
They could choose one of the following workshops:
building, scrapbooking, origami, paper mache, Zumba, enviro-ness, cake decorating, stop motion,walking group, bushcraft/camping, computer programming for beginners, storytelling(with puppets), golf, baking, terrarium making.
I am doing the scrapbooking.
Here are the nine girls decorating their front cover.
(We are going to create a small album.)
Hard work? Not at all, but very time-consuming. Concentrating is also very important.
Last weekend my son and I worked on an order of 100 raspberry pi boards.
Visit the business blog for more information.

One finished bundle of six boards
We made 10 bundles halfway on Saturday, 10 on Sunday.
Tuesday evening we finished all 20 off, ready to go to be soldered on Wednesday!
They still need to be tested before they can be sent to the customer.
We did a great job!
