I had some difficulty with my computer so I am using Vladika’s, which feels so different and so this entry might end up being brief. The foot nurse came again today, bringing a bouquet of daffodils and a pot of sorrel that will soon be transplanted among the herbs. Two boxes of candles arrived at the post office. I was mistaken in thinking that we had run out of candles when, indeed, there was still a large box full of candles hidden somewhere. Now we shall have enough for a long time.
