What I did on Maundy Thursday11:59 PM Thursday April 09, 2020 |

April 9, 2020, Holy Thursday

No Visita Iglesia today.  Not even online.  I Just did laundry, cooked, and gazed blankly.

I prayed, of course.  Holy Week or not,  I do pray.  That keeps me sane.  Enumerating the names of as many as 50 to 80 saints makes me feel I have friends.   I say “have mercy on us” dozens of times a day.

I no longer want to watch the tv news updates on the corochina virus.  It just frightens me no end.

I  cooked spaghetti for lunch.

Since we’re supposed to be fasting, I didn’t cook anything for dinner. I told my family to just reheat left overs or basta bahala na lang sila.

Oyen has been making use of her time productively during the stay-at-home order by learning how to bake.
Today she baked the most delicious banana bread. I never liked banana bread and never bothered to eat when offered to me, except for this one. It’s very good for a first try.

A little over-baked but otherwise perfect.

So what I did on Maundy Thursday? Eat.
