Time to clean up. Naanh, too much bother, just click "View" and make them all smaller.

No walk this morning, pastoral reasons, early officiating a service in the rector’s absence. 

What kind of ἀγάπη summons a hundred+mile drive clergy conference for Sunday afternoon and evening of Easter Day, Monday, and Tuesday morning of Easter Week, protected, much needed and deserved rest time and family time for exhausted clergy, not even going there, retired, otherwise as a grouchy old man I’d boycott!!

We had the best Easter, all my girls here plus Ray and Jeremy. We sliced and consumed part of a whole bone-in ham from Snake River Farms and sent the rest home with various households. What's left here besides a still exhausted old man: bit of scrumptious ham, potato skins saved for me, some interestingly delicious lemon cake from Cahall's, rest of the egg casserole from Sunday breakfast, few bananas from Lillie's birthday party, one of which I just consumed with early cup of black coffee - - -
