Funeral this morning for the mother of some dear friends. Then a trip to the quilt shop to pick up the 2 quilt block kits for the 2 meetings I missed. A stop at Penney's to get accessories for Maddie's Christening gown. Then home to do some crisis cleaning, work, more crisis cleaning. I sure will be glad when cleaning becomes just plain cleaning again.

I did have a productive day yesterday, though you wouldn't know it to look around this place. I ground and froze 8 bags of zucchini, finished up the stitching on Maddie's dress (still have to weave in the ends), made a batch of Carrot Cake candles, got ALL of the laundry done, folded, and all but one basket put away.

Tuesday of the Twenty-first week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Louis, King of France (1215-1270)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 23:23-26.


Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. (But) these you should have done, without neglecting the others. Blind guides, who strain out the gnat and swallow the camel! Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You cleanse the outside of cup and dish, but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may be clean.

Thoughts from the cornfield:

Pretty is as pretty does. :)
