St. Demetrios

So it's the Feast of Great Martyr Demetrios again, my huband's name day, and I have a few minutes to spare.

We went to our own neighborhood church, NOT the Church of St. Demetrios, where we had such a traumatic time two years ago.

We are hosting a huge dinner tonight in a taverna belonging to one of Leonidas' 78 first cousins.

Day after tomorrow, Ochi Day, Julia and David are arriving from England, to stay here through Sunday.  I've got almost everything ready, but still anticipate that I won't have time to post anything before Monday, except a post about knitting, to appear tomorrow.

Time flies.....

The dating of the blog account of your "traumatic time two years ago" is 3 years ago.

Sounds like the parade was wonderful!

I had occasion to share your blog posts on Why Jesus died last night with a friend who is reading about Orthodoxy and finding he agrees with what he is reading. Thank you again for taking the time to do that.

I'm out the door this morning to attend liturgy commemorating Saint Demetrios. May he pray for us! And many years to your husband!

Even though my wishes are late, they are still heartfelt - Happy Name's Day to your love!

Thanks to all for your good wishes!

Yes, it was three years ago we had such a bad experience.
