Thomas and I had a nice drive in the sunshine to visit Vladika Lazar. In fact it became so warm that we opened the windows to allow the fresh and fragrant air into the vehicle. Although Vladika Irinee’s plane had arrived from Whitehorse in the Yukon, the Deacon’s plane was delayed until ten thirty, so they would be spending the night in Vancouver and coming to see us tomorrow. Because of the cougar scare, Father Moses and Thomas walked me back to my cottage, during which time we could hear an owl hooting on the other side of the building. The sound was haunting and I can understand why it can frighten some people.
