I'm up early today. I think the time change has my body mixed up.
We didn't have many Trick or Treaters on Halloween, but here are my 3 favorite goblins. We had spiderman, a bunny, and a little strawberry!



Today is a Maddie day. Maddie and I will be doing some cleaning. The house is a wreck due to an insane week last week. The craft show went well, but it's a different crowd than we're used to. Sales were up 24% from last year, but we need to make some adjustments for this particular show for next year.

Now that it is November, it's time to bring out the Christmas scents - cranberry, Christmas tree, Gingerbread - Mmmmmmmmm

Here is today's Holiday mission from Flylady



**************Evening update**********
Packaged up a lot of primitive candle lamps and some potpourri. Tonight I'm making pure olive oil soap. I should have made it a lot sooner. The people who want this kind of soap tend to buy lots of it at a time. It takes about 6 weeks to cure. I also discovered that I am short of cranberry soap so tomorrow I'm going to have to make some so that it's cured by the time I sell what I have. Cranberry is my favorite Christmas scent. I also made a batch of cranberry jar candles.

Word of the day:
The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls)
Today the Church celebrates : The Commemoration of all of the Faithful Departed
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 25:31-46.


When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.' Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?' And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.' Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.' Then they will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?' He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.' And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

I enjoyed visiting with you at the craft show Saturday, Mary. And I wanted to tell you that I enjoy your blog on a not so regular basis, too!

Thanks, Diane,
I enjoyed visiting with you too! You have a wonderful family and I'm so glad you are all a part of our parish. Out kids were spaced about like yours and watching your family brings back happy memories of when our kids were young.
