• Did my early morning stuff on the back patio after lighting the grill and otherwise preparing to smoke a brisket.
  • Took a phone call from a reporter seeking a comment on Bishop Beckwith’s death.
  • Worked through a short stack of relatively small administrative items.
  • Made a pastoral care phone call.
  • Circled back to check in with a priest from outside the diocese who has expressed an interest in working in Springfield.
  • Throughout all of this, checked periodically on the brisket.
  • Had an early-ish lunch of leftovers.
  • Out the door at 1230 to take Brenda to her acupuncture appointment. Back a little before 2:00.
  • Put together a draft of the liturgy booklet for the synod Eucharist. It all went smoothly (I had a document from a prior year to use as a template), but it was nonetheless time-consuming because it involved going online to purchase graphics file of service music from Church Publishing.
  • “Knocked off,” as it were, around 3:30, in partial deference to catching up on the effects of being “in the job” for fourteen straight days. Took care of a handful of relatively minor domestic chores … and continued to pay attention to the brisket.
  • Evening Prayer with Brenda.
  • I guess I don’t have to mention what we had for dinner! It turned out very well.
