Short Night, Long Day

Dear John,
 
It was a short night and a long day - I'll try to stay awake and coherent. Dog, laptop, and I are all piled up in bed. Typing is a bit of a challenge because Jethro insists on sleeping with his head in my lap. So any typos are his fault.
 
I did get five hours sleep last night - finally got to bed at 1:30 this morning. I worked six hours today, rushed home and changed clothes, and got to church by 6:00 for tonight's liturgy - the Synaxis of the Archangels. Myrna, Brian, Adrian, and I sang, which was great fun because we had four singers and four parts. I'm still a bit husky from the sore throat, but that doesn't matter so much when you're singing alto.
 
The church was beautiful tonight. With the time change, it was dark outside. The candlelight reflected on icons made everything  glow. This is the first time I've seen it after dark since we finished everything, and it's lovely. It was good to go and pray tonight.
 
It's getting on toward midnight, so I'd better stop now. I'm off tomorrow so I can get caught up on sleep. I'm too old to stay up that late! Tomorrow I need to do laundry and general housework. It should be a quiet, domestic day.
 
Love you with all my heart,
Joan.
