Finally, the heat and humidity have lifted. This is the warmest, most humid summer I can remember in quite a while. Clayton is spending the day here to escape having to be at a garage sale all day. He came armed with notebook and markers so I think he will be quite busy and I will end up with many, many, pieces of art work.
I spent last night making cookies and zucchini bread for Harold's big Canada Fly-in trip. I have plans to get ahead on the stocking production for this winter. I have also been filling in the inventory for our fall shows. It's always so hard to plan what to take. Each show is unique and with a specific clientele. For instance, I know that I won't be taking many candles to our St. Louis show because those ladies tend to buy the ornaments and lanterns. That is where I will take my primitive lamps.
Today I will be doing some cleaning. I ordered a new vacuum and it arrived yesterday. It just seems that when the vacuum doesn't work, cleaning is pointless. LOL!
Word of the day:
The Transfiguration of the Lord, feast
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 9:28-36.
About eight days after he said this, he took Peter, John, and James and went up the mountain to pray. While he was praying his face changed in appearance and his clothing became dazzling white. And behold, two men were conversing with him, Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory and spoke of his exodus that he was going to accomplish in Jerusalem. Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep, but becoming fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. As they were about to part from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good that we are here; let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." But he did not know what he was saying. While he was still speaking, a cloud came and cast a shadow over them, and they became frightened when they entered the cloud. Then from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my chosen Son; listen to him." After the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. They fell silent and did not at that time tell anyone what they had seen.
