It's a cool day out today - a welcome relief from the humidity of the last few days. I have a rose blooming on my bush and my garden is looking good.
I'll be pouring tarts today. My new favorite fragrance is pumpkin spice. I haven't used it in wax before, just room sprays and soap. I made layered candles the other day. The bottom layer is pumpkin spice, the middle layer is pumpkin crunchcake, and the top is creme brulee. We are calling this blend November Dreams. The three fragrances blend very well together, but my favorite layer is the pumpkin spice. It's not a sweet pumpkin pie smell, but rather a warm spicy pumpkin. It reminds me of late fall - or Thanksgiving.
Word of the day:
Saint Peter and Saint Paul, apostles - Solemnity
Today the Church celebrates : Saints Peter and Paul - Solemnity
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 16:13-19.
When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter said in reply, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
