Tea time

The sisters invite guests to tea.
"Ladies, your most obedient", said Michael. "We paid our Compliments!"
"Fine weather, Ladies."

Discussions are in full swing and no one noticed the missing Camille and Jim.

one week before the wedding

Stela, Sofia's sister enter in the room. After her face something has happened. She tells her that her cousin Camille became pregnant with Jim. This means that her wedding is cancelled.

Now that Camille is pregnant they have to make a wedding for her and Jim quickly so that the people from the village can't notice this.

Mother’s Day - march 8th

Multumesc mama ca imi iei toate pachetele de la posta. La multi ani! :)

The 1st of March is the official beginning of Spring. In Romania it is also a traditional holiday named Martisorul (a kind of trinket, or amulet). The tradition is to give to your loved ones small presents tied with a string made of white and red. Red is considered to be the color of Spring, while white is the color of Winter. So, Martisorul is the passage from Winter to Spring, but also a symbol of prosperity and good luck.

Snowdrops are considered to be the flowers of spring, the first flowers of the year.

Martisorul, the 1st day of March is a small holiday precursory to Mother’s Day that is celebrated on March the 8th in Romania. Actually is Women's Day. So best wishes to all Ladies!!

I want to thank my mom because she takes all my packages from the post office.

Three Sisters

Chapter 5
Sofia is praying for a miracle.

Wedding preparations are in full swing. Invitations are ready to send. The dress and the veil are also ready. They found a florist. The cake will be home made. The porcelains, candel sticks and the other wedding staff have already arrived and even the guests presents are ready.

But Sofia still feels bad. Her sisters went to talk to her.

- Something wrong, dear? said Stela
- I am the happiest creature in the World, for I have received an offer of marriage from Mr. Michael Green. It is the first I have ever had, and I hardly know how to value it enough. (Sofia)
- I am not going to force you, Child, but we can't let such an opportunity escape of settling one of my siters so advantageously. (Stela)
- I can't marry a 1/12 scale doll. (Sofia)
- Oh, dear, scale is not important in marrige.(Stela)
- But love is, replied Sofia
- Sofia, you are so young. Love passes through the stomach. But a good financial situation is what you need for a long and happy marriage. (Stela)
Please make yourself pretty and come down to tea. The guests can arrive at any time.

Sofia is praying for a miracle.
