Yesterday was fairly productive. I got a little more weeding done in the dungeon (my basement workroom), but I have barely made a dent. Harold and I moved more bottles out. I made 3 loaves of zucchini bread. (The garden is doing very well this year.) Got some Christmas stockings made, worked a on a quilt, swept out the garage, did the laundry, packaged an Ebay order, sent an order out with Melisa, and did more unpacking from the trip. Somehow it looked like a lot less when it was confined to the suitcases.

Last night we had dinner at Melisa and Justin's house. What a feast! We had a sort of belated birthday celebration for Claire and Kelli. We got Claire a little Alaskan baby doll. She named her "Boy." Claire has very imaginative names for her babies. One she named Dora. Dora's nickname is Octopus.

After dinner we hauled out our laptop and showed our pics from Alaska. I think Harold is more excited now than he was before the trip.

Word of the day:
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 14:1-12.
Saturday of the Seventeenth week in Ordinary Time

Today the Church celebrates : St. Alphonsus Liguori, bishop and Doctor of the Church (1696-1787)

At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the reputation of Jesus and said to his servants, "This man is John the Baptist. He has been raised from the dead; that is why mighty powers are at work in him." Now Herod had arrested John, bound (him), and put him in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, for John had said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her." Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people, for they regarded him as a prophet. But at a birthday celebration for Herod, the daughter of Herodias performed a dance before the guests and delighted Herod so much that he swore to give her whatever she might ask for. Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist." The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and the guests who were present, he ordered that it be given, and he had John beheaded in the prison. His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who took it to her mother. His disciples came and took away the corpse and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.
