Well, our neighbors to the south are spreading manure today so everything for miles around stinks. They use rotten yogurt so things are even smellier than they would otherwise be. It wasn't so bad when it was contained to their original mile, but they have bought up all the ground from the east side of their ground to the county line to the north. Basically, where our family, kids, brother-in-law etc. live. Something about it is not quite right, but we really have no choice but to shut our windows and doors, and plug our noses when we drive by.

Today, I had Mass and Melisa wanted to go to Claire's classroom, so Clayton stayed with Aunt Kelli and Uncle Sam. Looks like he and Madison had quite a time. Kelli told them to say "pickles" and this is what she got. LOL!

Yesterday, Clay and I decorated for Fall. We had fun doing it together. Clay has definite ideas about how one should decorate.  I moved some things after he left.  He was here today and put things back. 
After Clay went home, I did some decluttering sessions.  The older I get (and the more I watch Hoarders), the easier it gets to let go of stuff.

Word of the day:
Friday of the Twenty-third week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Nicholas of Tolentino († 1310)
Saint Augustine : The splinter and the beam
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:39-42.

And he told them a parable, "Can a blind person guide a blind person? Will not both fall into a pit? No disciple is superior to the teacher; but when fully trained, every disciple will be like his teacher. Why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own? How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,' when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother's eye.
