More Doings

Those of you who know me know that I have no great liking for pets of any kind, AT ALL. I don't know how I ended up that way, since we had animals growing up. Last night wonder bunny escaped from his cage. At first I thought it was just a large rat under my bed until he hopped on top of my neighbor. At least if it had been a rat we could have set a trap for it. Wonder bunny also has an early morning exercise routine, starting at 6am and going for an hour.

Mrs. D and the baby, A and N on our walk in the park. We had a dusting of snow this morning.

The dog also likes to have free reign over the bedroom particularly in the early hours of the morning. I've taken to barricading the doors, to keep from heart attacks at dawn when the dog decides to sleep with someone. Ahhh, the trials of missionary life!

 Church on Sunday at the Seminary. The kids enjoyed using the teenage boys as jungle gyms.

The evangelical church here is much smaller than in Vyborg, and with fewer English-speakers, but fellow believers all the same. It was Reformation Sunday, so we had a fellowship meal afterward along with four dances called by Friend H and I. The language barrier doesn't really matter much in dancing, because even calling in English to English speakers, no one listens, so teaching dances to those who don't understand what one is saying is normal.

This morning we all walked a few blocks down the street to Smolney Convent.

It was a brisk walk with beautiful sights.
