My kitchen smells like peppermint this morning. I made a batch of peppermint soap last night and it smells wonderful! It turned out a little darker than I like, but that is the nature of oils and soapmaking.

I added an extra ounce of Peppermint oil to this batch and I can't wait until it cures.

Last night Harold, Justin, and I picked about 12 dozen ears of corn. Melisa and I will be freezing it today.

Anna assembled the inventory lists for our fall shows. I can't believe it's that close already. I think we have enough in our coffers to pay for the ingredients for this fall. It would be nice to start the season in the black. We have another show to pay for. We're taking on the Sumner Show in September. We did that show last year and while we didn't take in a whole lot, we did acquire some faithful customers. This show was very well run - the only drawback is the location, but even at that, it was a little easier to do than Papa's last year.

I finally started little Maddie's baptismal gown. I have been searching for my beading needles. I wrote to 3 or 4 shops all of whom informed me that these are not being made any more. I scrounged around the basement and managed to find 3.

Tonight our new bishop will be celebrating a Mass of Thanksgiving at Sacred Heart in Mt. Pleasant. I will be singing in the diocesan choir.

Word of the day:
Thursday of the Nineteenth week in Ordinary Time

Today the Church celebrates : St. Radegundes, Queen of France (519-587)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 18:21-35.19:1.

Then Peter approaching asked him, "Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?" Jesus answered, "I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times. That is why the kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who decided to settle accounts with his servants. When he began the accounting, a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount. Since he had no way of paying it back, his master ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, his children, and all his property, in payment of the debt. At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said, 'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.' Moved with compassion the master of that servant let him go and forgave him the loan. When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a much smaller amount. He seized him and started to choke him, demanding, 'Pay back what you owe.' Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him, 'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.' But he refused. Instead, he had him put in prison until he paid back the debt. Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened, they were deeply disturbed, and went to their master and reported the whole affair. His master summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to. Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?' Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart." When Jesus finished these words, he left Galilee and went to the district of Judea across the Jordan.
