Another interesting day at the monastery. Thanks to the cooking lessons that Dr Mikhail Martynenko gave to Fr Moses, he has been doing a bit of experimenting in the kitchen, though it is not for certain how much of a success this has been. Well, these things do take time.
As this note is being typed, it is very cold and raining so for anyone with arthritis, getting around can prove to be painful. This encourages us to be more and more thankful for the recently completed repairs made to the roofs and to the plumbing, so that we may be cold but we are still dry.
