A Saree for Madam Grant

Image: Google

Yesterday the Indian men working for Grant brought me a gift. A genuine Indian Saree. I remember wearing a saree to a function when Grant and I were first married. It needed an Indian lady to help me to put it on. I will have to find one in Shinyanga to do this as there are none here in Mwadui.

I still have very erratic Internet (which I hope will be sorted out by mid-April) and thank all who continue to visit my blog and leave comments. I will be visiting you all in the not-too-distant future.

I hope you're all having a wonderful week.


  1. What a lovely gift! I think sarees are beautiful -- the ones in the picture surely are! Sorry you're still having internet problems! That can be and is so frustrating. Hope your week is off to a good start, Jo! Enjoy!


  2. Can't wait to see the pictures!! Bet it's beautiful!

  3. What a wonderful gift. I can imagine needing help to put it one. So elegant looking.

  4. When you put your sari on I hope you will get someone to photograph you. I'm sure it is lovely and that was sweet of them to buy one for you.

  5. Hi Jo, you will look stunning in a sari!Internet problems are so annoying, when you have time to blog and lose the connection.
    I hope it reconnects you soon although mid April sounds so long away.

  6. Oh, what a lovely gift, Jo. I'm looking forward to seeing you wear it.
    We're in California right now, and the weather is much warmer than it was in Alberta. It's wonderful to see flowers and trees blooming.
    Hi to Grant, and love to the cats and yourownself,

  7. How splendid! Frances has one which she has worn on special occasion and I think she looks beautiful in it. I'm sure you will also! Sure hope those icky internet problems are soon solved. It can be so frustrating as to make one pull out ones hair!

  8. That was a lovely gift. I wouldn't know how to put one on, but I'm sure you'll figure it out.

  9. I can't wait to see your new saree! I'd never seen it spelled that way before; I'd only seen it spelled sari.

  10. What a lovely gift, Maybe you can take of photo of yourself posing in your new Indian Saree.
