Long day today. We have our show at West Intermediate. I'm not running on much sleep. I neglected to tell Harold that I left the car at the school last night. When he got up at 4:00 this morning to check the grain bins, he about freaked out to see that the garage was empty. The guilt kept me awake for a good hour. Note to myself: Let Harold know when the car will not be in the garage when he gets up at 4:00 in the morning to check the grain bins.
Set up last night was a lot less back-breaking since we acquired a flat wagon (thanks Gordon) and borrowed Nina and Jamie's dolly. The one thing I hate about set-up and breakdown is having to lug heavy carts and bins. These make the job so much easier. It will be interesting to see how we do at this show this year. Last year we were so crowded with people that many passed us by because they couldn't get up to the booth. We doubled our space this year and it feels so luxurious to have enough room.
Melisa will be at the St. Vincent de Paul preschool. This is the first time we've split up.
Harold is combining corn in the field behind the house. For the first time in a long time he won't be going north to hunt. His birthday is on Sunday - the opening day of firearm deer season. They had a really late start getting into the fields.
Saturday of the Thirty-second week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Lawrence O'Toole, Archbishop of Dublin (c. 1125-1180)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 18:1-8.
Then he told them a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary. He said, There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being. And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, 'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.' For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, 'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being, because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'" The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says. Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"
