Today is day 3 of the Carb Deplete challenge with the ladies from Lowcarb Friends. It's going pretty well except that I still am forgetting to get all of my water in. I had half of it yesterday. Wendy says that the water is important because if the body doesn't get enough water, it will store carbs in order to get it. Not sure how that works, but I will make an effort to get all of my water in today.

I took all of my HRM watches in last night and had the batteries changed. I am looking forward to an outdoor walk today. I won't be headed to the deadend though until firearm season is over. No one got a deer up north. With the baiting ban in effect, it makes it a little harder. The guys down here all got deer. Howard got 2 within a couple minutes of each other.

Last night I packaged up some more stockings for shipment. I have 9 more left to make. The house is so bad. I will not be shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. I will be cleaning and decorating for Christmas. Some time this week or next, I have to pour my Advent candles. At least this year they will be the right colors. LOL!

Headed for my walk.

Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel
Lk 19:11-28

While people were listening to Jesus speak,
he proceeded to tell a parable because he was near Jerusalem
and they thought that the Kingdom of God
would appear there immediately.
So he said,
“A nobleman went off to a distant country
to obtain the kingship for himself and then to return.
He called ten of his servants and gave them ten gold coins
and told them, ‘Engage in trade with these until I return.’
His fellow citizens, however, despised him
and sent a delegation after him to announce,
‘We do not want this man to be our king.’
But when he returned after obtaining the kingship,
he had the servants called, to whom he had given the money,
to learn what they had gained by trading.

The first came forward and said,
‘Sir, your gold coin has earned ten additional ones.’
He replied, ‘Well done, good servant!
You have been faithful in this very small matter;
take charge of ten cities.’
Then the second came and reported,
‘Your gold coin, sir, has earned five more.’
And to this servant too he said,
‘You, take charge of five cities.’
Then the other servant came and said,
‘Sir, here is your gold coin;
I kept it stored away in a handkerchief,
for I was afraid of you, because you are a demanding man;
you take up what you did not lay down
and you harvest what you did not plant.’
He said to him,
‘With your own words I shall condemn you,
you wicked servant.
You knew I was a demanding man,
taking up what I did not lay down
and harvesting what I did not plant;
why did you not put my money in a bank?
Then on my return I would have collected it with interest.’
And to those standing by he said,
‘Take the gold coin from him
and give it to the servant who has ten.’
But they said to him,
‘Sir, he has ten gold coins.’
He replied, ‘I tell you,
to everyone who has, more will be given,
but from the one who has not,
even what he has will be taken away.
Now as for those enemies of mine who did not want me as their king,
bring them here and slay them before me.’”

After he had said this,
he proceeded on his journey up to Jerusalem.

Thoughts from the cornfield:
We heard this same parable on Sunday in another Gospel. My thoughts remain the same. :)



God bless our troops!
