I served alone for the feast of the Meeting of the Lord in the Temple and I found it quite difficult, as I could not use my canes or walker.  Still, by the intercession of Saint Simeon, I managed to complete the service.  As no food was prepared for a meal, Elena quickly whipped up a delightful meal.  Vlad had filmed the entire service, then he wanted to film an interview which we did in the old church.  I felt that it was successful. Later we had visitors from Saskatchewan who brought us jars of jelly that one can find only in the Canadian Prairies—chokecherry, Saskatoon, and high bush cranberry jellies.  We shall have to be careful and not use them up quickly, as there is nowhere to find more here.
