Good grief, we had a few days of sweltering heat and now fall is in the air.
The house smells like fall anyway because I am working on craft show stuff. I love fall. I noticed a huge orange pumpkin in Melisa's garden last week. We planted a lot of pumpkins too, but ours are still green. There is an "accidental" patch of spaghetti squash at the edge of the cornfield that looks like a pretty good yield.

Yesterday I had some relatives come out to get their "candle" fix. There's nothings like a focused 20 minutes in a room to greatly improve the look. There is still A LOT of work to do down there. I also noticed that there are a lot of candles to be made. Harold is slowly dismantling his winemaking operation. I kind of hate to see him quit. He really enjoyed it and now he has a little more time.

Today we travel to Grand Rapids for a bridal shower for one of the nieces. We put together a set of our mixes some other wares. My sister-in-law stopped in to pick up a last minute gift for the shower. Anna, Melisa, and I are riding together and there will be a trip to Michael's in the plan.

Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Rose of Lima, Virgin (1586-1617)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 6:60-69.


Then many of his disciples who were listening said, "This saying is hard; who can accept it?" Since Jesus knew that his disciples were murmuring about this, he said to them, "Does this shock you? What if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life, while the flesh is of no avail. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But there are some of you who do not believe." Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the one who would betray him. And he said, "For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father." As a result of this, many (of) his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. Jesus then said to the Twelve, "Do you also want to leave?" Simon Peter answered him, "Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God."
