When I awoke, I could smell smoke from the fire in the hall and I knew that Misha had already arrived, which he did about five thirty in the morning.  He did complain that not enough heat was given off by the wood as it was still somewhat damp.  We had an enjoyable singing rehearsal in the afternoon in the reception room where the old piano is located.  I think that the singing for the Pascal service is going to be good.  We were under the impression that Vladika Irinee was to arrive later in the evening so we sat up until quite late but no one arrived, no doubt plans having been changed.  Father Moses and Thomas accompanied me to my cottage because Davey warned us that he had seen three large cougars in his yard and he does not live very far from us.  In the future we shall have to be careful.
