I'm still struggling with trying to develop a flexible morning routine. It has to be flexible now because I don't have the house to myself in the morning like I used to. My old routine was to get up, do my blog, do my workout and then get on with the day. Now I never know if someone will be on the computer when I get up so I need to re-work that. My afternoon is pretty well set - work in the quilting room from 2-4 and in the basement dungeon from 4-5 or 6. That's working out pretty well. I got a large batch of caramel apple candles made yesterday, along with some room sprays, some oils, and some simmer scents. This way I can list my inventory as I make it.

The Tweetlebugs are here this morning. Claire is hanging over my shoulder and chattering away. Clay is "crafting." He has his own cart full of stuff to color and draw with.

Thursday of the Twentieth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Abbot and Doctor of the Church (1091-1153)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 22:1-14.

Jesus again in reply spoke to them in parables, saying, The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. He dispatched his servants to summon the invited guests to the feast, but they refused to come. A second time he sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those invited: "Behold, I have prepared my banquet, my calves and fattened cattle are killed, and everything is ready; come to the feast."' Some ignored the invitation and went away, one to his farm, another to his business. The rest laid hold of his servants, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged and sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then he said to his servants, 'The feast is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy to come. Go out, therefore, into the main roads and invite to the feast whomever you find.' The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to meet the guests he saw a man there not dressed in a wedding garment. He said to him, 'My friend, how is it that you came in here without a wedding garment?' But he was reduced to silence. Then the king said to his attendants, 'Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.' Many are invited, but few are chosen."
