This week in our Monday morning circle Ruth T. introduced us to her friend Robb who is also a eurythmy therapist. Then we sang Happy Birthday to Gundula. After that we talked about the weather, stars, sports and our weekend. Then Monique introduced us to our new volunteer named Zara who will be working with us on Mondays.
In the afternoon one group went swimming and another group went to Circle Hall and practiced Russian singing and dancing with Jane.
This week in our Thursday morning college, Ruth T’s friend Robb talked to us about the history of stained windows. Robb told us that in the 12th, 13th and 14th century, houses did not have any windows. The only light in the houses came from a small fire off to the side. In the 16th century people started to make stained glass windows by drawing scenes from the Bible.
During Robb’s lesson we ripped colored paper and glued it onto white paper attached to the windows to make a design. Then Robb turned off all the lights and showed us the designs in the dark.
At the end of the lesson, we sang Happy Birthday to Caity.
After a short break, Ruth T. took a small group of companions to Waldorf school to hand out thank you cards for the students who took part in the Seven Ravens performance. Also Lorna’s bell choir practiced their bell playing for the spring concert.
This week in our Friday morning circle we sang Happy Birthday to Marietta. Also Monique announced that we would be celebrating Candlemas on Monday afternoon. After a short break Ruth T. took the garden crew to Loutet farm to stir the preparation for the earth.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, we broke into our
eurythmy, painting, art studio, clay, reading, writing and novel groups.
On Friday afternoon one group went swimming and another group stayed at Circle Hall and did dancing and singing.
