Sunday in Glendale

Sunday was another glorious day in Glendale. I just love a blue, blue sky with green, green trees. Jeanne, Kolya, Jim and I attended Christ Church Glendale that morning. This is the same church where Jim and I were married (as well as my parents!) and where Jeanne and Anna were baptized. Lots of family history here.

I began taking pictures of some of the stained glass windows after the service and one woman approached me to tell me that the window had recently been cleaned — apparently after QUITE a while — and they had discovered another lamb with Jesus! Made me smile.

After church was a time of fellowship and we were asked to stick around and answer questions that anyone might have. Of course we enjoyed coffee and pastries, but we couldn’t stay too long. Today was the day that Kolya would officially meet lots of family and lots of old friends. We needed to get back to finish getting Mom’s place ready for a party!

We don’t often return to Glendale — usually we visit with Mom on Cape Cod, given the chance — so this was a very special time of reuniting with friends that we haven’t seen for several years.

Family members wanted to see pictures of Jeanne and Kolya’s wedding so the laptop was out and running.

And then we all simply enjoyed each other’s company. Mom’s home has lots of spots to gather for smaller conversation groups, plus the kitchen door opens straight out to a patio where we often find a crowd!

A great way to spend our last full day in Glendale…
