Bula! 5 days.....

Yesterday we visited the Farmer's Market.  It is open on Fridays and Saturdays.  
We talked to many of the farmers who said things weren't too good but they all still smile and they are so kind and good.  
Lots of coconuts.
Just like at home there are all different religions in Fiji. 
We visited this temple where they have more than 1000 Gods but we couldn't stay long....
because I was having trouble with "silence"  
This is one of Church's in one of the villages.  Our tour guide sang to us in here and I could have sat and listened to him sing all day.  This picture only shows part of this church.  It is a large church with different sections to sit in.  The ladies sit in one section.  The men in another.  The children and guests in another.  The leaders in another section.  Church is mandatory.  It is twice on Sunday and once on Wednesday.  If you don't show up then someone will come with a broom and get you up to get to Church.  
Our farewell dinner 
There was hand made bead necklaces at each of our spots.  
Some children sang for us.   All children learn to sing.  It is one of the father's responsibilities as the leader of the family to teach their children how to sing. 
So beautiful.

Our last pillow gift. Some beautiful Fiji beauty products.  Sad to see the end of the Stampin' Up! Fiji trip.  Irv and I are staying a few more days but we are saying good bye to many of our friends.  We will see them again at convention in July.  

Now I know you have been anxious to see what I am adding to the basket today.  Only a few more days to get your order in.  Only a few people have placed an order so your chances of winning are really good.  See below for details on how you can WIN this basket. 


5 days until I am home:  5 pieces of paper
(2 pieces of 12 x 12 Lucky Limeade, 2 pieces 8.5x11,

Lucky Limeade is retiring and it's one of my favourites.  
However, that means new colours are coming.
Here in Fiji there is pool patrol.  Each day if you are lucky enough to spot the pool patrol then you can get a prize.  So two days ago I got the Colour Coach 2013-2015 In Colour Cards
