Today is a bit of a sad anniversary. Sixteen years ago we lost baby Joseph to miscarriage. Harold's sister Joan, and family friends Gil and MaryAnn, gave us a small seedling as a memorial. Today that pine tree is huge. Life and death are intimately intertwined.

Today is also a happy day! Happy Birthday, Jennifer!!

Yesterday was a great day. We went to Grand Rapids for a wedding shower for Erin. It was a nice day of hangin' out with the family. Claire was the star of the show with her antics. She is definitely an extrovert.

The FlyZone this week is the master bedroom. Well, maybe. We'll see. I have a bit of crisis cleaning to do. I am looking forward to getting this place in good enough shape that crisis cleaning won't be necessary. But for today, it is a general "go through the house and surface clean" with a concentrated session in the guest bedroom. Also on the docket are laundry and bills (must be Monday). I have one load washed and in the dryer and one load in the washer. And it looks like there is only a jean load after that so I should get that all done today.

During my work hours I have 2 stockings to make for an order and some candles that desperately need to be restocked. Oh, and I need to do something with the zucchini, cauliflower, and potatoes from our garden. I'm off to my other blog.

Have a great day!

Saint Bartholomew, apostle - Feast
Today the Church celebrates : St. Bartholomew, Apostle - Feast
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 1:45-51.

Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law, and also the prophets, Jesus, son of Joseph, from Nazareth." But Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come from Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, "Here is a true Israelite. There is no duplicity in him." Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree." Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel." Jesus answered and said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this." And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see the sky opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."
