It is 11:15 am on Sunday morning and I have already been up for several hours. I am part of a Swedish singing group here in DC and we performed during the Sunday mass in Augustana Lutheran Church. The church is just a few blocks up the street from me and the Swedish assembly uses it for their activities. As always, I got a little irritated about some of the things the pastor said and was confused about other things that went on, but we sang traditional Swedish spring songs and folk music, which was very nice. They also served coffee and Swedish smörgåstårta after the mass that I of course stayed for. So with the singing and coffee, I don’t think I could have had a better start of the day!
