DH has now departed on his trip to Le Mans, and the house just feels so empty without him.
I don`t like it at all :-(
Never mind, he will be home on Tuesday.
I said the prayers for travellers for him, and I think I will pray Vespers shortly.
On Monday I woke up at the crack of dawn..........(well, 5.30 am) and decided that I would pray all the day office hours in the Orthodox Prayers of Old England book.
Lauds at 6.00am,
Third hour at 9.00am
Sixth hour at noon,
Ninth hour at 3pm
Vespers at 6pm and Compline at 9pm
It was great to pray so much in one day, and I **really** enjoyed the privilege of joining in the Church`s worship but I was conscious of clockwatching to pray at the right times, and I found the day very "bitty" in terms of not being able to do any long projects.
Interestingly, on Tuesday I felt like a damp dischcloth, and "prayed out".
I am sure it would get much easier once in a regular routine.
I don`t think I could do it on a daily basis until Abby starts school in Sept, when my days will be my own from 08.45 am to 3.25pm, but I will certainly try to fit in daily offices wherever possible.
