Tonight at 21.02, the earth turned around the the Sun and spring came...
Iranian New Year `s started.
you can see our "Haft Seen"(seven S) in the picture.
this year I colored the eggs by natural color, one yellow by saffron, one brown by tea and the last one orange by curry.
I wish peace and health for all the nations.

spring house

For more than a week, I was like the woman you see!
It was the time of spring house. In Persian we call it "Khane takani",khane means; house & Takani means; shaking. Although shaking is not a good equal for the Persian word, when we use "tekandan"(to shake), we mean all the dust and tiny things among a thing will fall down, so we use the word for our house to show how our house should be clean! We should wash and clean all and all parts of the house.
This year, my mother has a terrible pain in her knee and doctors recommend her to have an operation, and more than 8 years, my father has had the same problem and some other diseases, so I decided to do spring house on my own this year!
My parents said you re unique! Every walls and dishes are brightening ...
I tried to throw out all the dust and dirtyness from our house and welcome all the happiness and cleanliness...
we are waiting for spring...
