Shopping for a Skirt

Oh my. I found this linked on one of the sites I frequent. I laughed until I cried. Man, this sounds so familiar. I hate shopping for myself.

Enjoy!

Pentecost

Joyous Feastday! [I'm actually posting this on 6/11 because I didn't have time to download the pictures before we left for the beach.] We decorated the church with flowers and green branches for Pentecost before Vespers. Vespers was sparsely attended but was a lovely service. It will be many years before we have all of the robes and cloths in the full array of liturgical colors. We've started with red. Consequently, only Father has green...

I made the litya bread using a recipe I found on the Internet. I used the same recipe for vespers of Ascension, but I didn't like how it turned out so I tweaked it this time. Much better.

This is the first time we've used the fans for the gospel reading. It really looked nice.

And of course, the kneeling vespers after Pentecost liturgy. I sneaked a photo during one of the kneeling prayers.
