Alex let me read a book to her this morning. She and Jeremy joined me in the kitchen as I cleaned and made coffee. We then moved to the dining room table for a while. I studied Greek until Alex let me read one book to her. She was held rapt by Van Allsburg.


I made yesterday into a long day by going grocery shopping in the afternoon. I was exhausted by work but nevertheless was motivated to stock up our pantry with stuff for us and company.  Church went well. I learned more about my own capabilities regarding practicing and performance. I didn’t have many under-prepared left hand omissions. There were a couple of shaky moments and they were where I would have predicted them. But overall I was very happy with the three Handel pieces we did yesterday (two organ pieces, one anthem).

I do enjoy le Carre’s novels. This memoir looks interesting as well.
