Where I've Been


for the last couple weeks....
Busy. Too busy. But we had Hospice offer us a respite care for my father in law and put him up in a nursing home for 6 days. I took my wife and kids to Santa Fe for a visit to Holy Trinity Orthodox Church's consecration and the elevation of Fr. John to "archpriest". Afterwards I kidnapped my wife and I took her to Colorado Springs instead of home. It took her 135 miles to realize we were going in the opposite direction of Albuquerque. We spent the next 4 days sightseeing and driving Colorado. Here is one panoramic vista thanks to Canon's "photostich". It is Trout Lake on top of the Rockies. A good time was had by all. Now back to reality....

I'm so glad you were able to get away.

I get to visit Santa Fe in late April, but I don't think I'll be there for Liturgy. I hear the church is beautiful, though, and would like to.

The kidnapping thing sounds just perfect! Glad you were able to pull that off.

And I would think that making the arrangements with your father-in-law are a big relief to your household? He sounded like he really needed a LOT of care. I hope this starts a (slightly?) more relaxing chapter for all.
