Yesterday, April 1st, otherwise known as Rosalie’s birthday, I was blessed to once again travel with the Seniors of St George to make the annual
Bluebonnet St Paraskevi Monastery pilgrimage.

Here’s most of the pilgrims — birthday girl is third row back in the middle (others were still shopping in the monastery gift shop).
The “choir stalls” (stasidia, in Greek) resemble other architecture (see above and below).
Mama goat kept a watchful eye on hers and me.
Again, look back at last year and see God’s providence.
An image, carved in the door leading to the nave from the narthex, of St Paraskevi in a boiling pot.
Now that’s just plain funky. An upward view within the narthex.
Just another day, wonderful (I must say), at St Paraskevi.
