We baptized a beautiful golden blond three year old girl named Martha who behaved maturely and took interest in the procedure. Later, I baked a prosphora and when I took it out of the oven I was sad to see that it resembled a football, for it somehow came out a little elongated, but perfectly useful for the liturgy.  Again we had people working on the plumbing, this time in the main building.  This is what happens to older buildings, so I hope that there will be no more plumbing problems in my lifetime.  We had quite a few visitors coming and going all day, but I was unable to receive most of them.  Lija prepared a good supper for us, at the end of which Dima came and brought the gifts he purchased in Nizhny Novgorod.  This included a complete communion set that is simply but artistically decorated  and it shall be consecrated tomorrow at the end of the liturgy.
