    Yes, she is fully involved in the task at hand, purposeful indeed. I wonder how many times in her life she has baked bread. And the previous post re the harvest and preparation of wheat flour in Greece was mind-boggling at the amount of work involved from start to finish. We know nothing of a full day’s work compared to that! Guess I should speak for myself on that one. Many people do work very hard.
