So excited that I made it through Pascha!!

I had to (for the first time ever) step up and do a bunch of the choir stuff.

My voice was giving out towards the end.. singing twice a day is NOT my norm.

And I was so proud of my kids.

12 year old was altar boy and did NOT fall asleep, even with the service running until 2:30 am.

And eldest was up until 3:30am ( service, then social gathering) and then still got to work the next day.

From yesterday, a pair of mallards.

They must be lamo underdog mallards, because at lower elevations there are fully thawed ponds.

But nope, they have chosen my still mostly frozen pond.

One is hidden behind the still slightly submerged and frozen in place duck island, the other one you can see standing on the ice.

I'm sure it is a shock to your system (maybe not as big a shock as when you see the price of vehicles).
It was really nice driving on the roads last early summer when pretty much no one was going anywhere. Of course traffic here looks like nothing compared to big cities even when everyone is out.

You'll have it a long time, spread the cost over those years and it isn't so bad :D
Some of the new safety bells and whistles are quite useful.

So what did you get?
