Superstitious people claim that any Friday the thirteenth of any month is certain to bring bad luck and, if that were so, we should have experienced such bad luck today, yet I cannot recall a single such incedent, unless one thinks that a rainy day constitutes misfortune! I baked two prosphoras using different techniques in their rising. Unfortunately, nothing will be known until they are cut open. For some reason, we have had less Paschal cheese [syrnaya paskha] than in other years, and we ate the last of it today. As for the Paschal breads [kulichy] we still have some lift to enjoy for a couple of days. No, this is not a hint to have more brought to us.
