Up and out of my office campsite and across the alley to read Morning Prayer in the cathedral. Then across town to IHOP for breakfast.
By the time I got back, I needed to start devoting my attention to final preparations for the Chrism Mass (printing out the readings, last-minute decisions on seating, recruiting lectors, and other odds and ends).
Presided at the clergy renewal of vows, the Eucharist, the blessing of oils, and the Sacrament of Unction.
Met privately with e cleric for a pastoral check-in.
Joined a group for lunch at Boone’s, a nearby eatery and watering hole.
By the time I got back to the office, it was nearly 2:30 and I was suddenly aware of being dog-tired. All the interaction with people was a great blessing, but, for an introvert, such blessing comes with a price. I settled in with a Netflix movie on my laptop and interrupted it at one point for a nap.
Eventually made it out to Chick-Fil-A for a bit of dinner (I’m very fond of their diet lemonade), then got about 4000 steps in circumambulating the White Oaks Mall parking lot.
Prayed the evening office, on the late side, in the cathedral.
Attended to a couple of low-mental-demand administrative tasks, and then cashed it in for the night.
