My friends, with the advent of August I go into "kaitana savta" mode. Roughly translated, this is "summer camp grandma." Over the course of the next three weeks, I will have grandchildren visiting me, two or three at a time, sleeping here and enjoying the activities I plan for them.
I will not be away. I will have breaks between, and time in the evenings when younger ones are asleep. But they will be my priority, which means posting will be fewer and shorter.
Without these dearly loved grandchildren, I would not have the strength to do postings at all.
