Fall is in the air.  I have been in such a funk this last week.  Not a total funk, just not real tolerant of the heat and humidity.  My workouts have fallen by the wayside.  I need to get back on the stick.  Once the school year starts, I will be able to set up some kind of schedule.

Today felt like fall.  In a week or so the trees will be all different colors.  The guys will start the harvest.  We will start our craft shows, and the whole wonderful path to Christmas begins.  Christmas, for me, starts around October.  I like it that way.  I know people get all bent about commercialism, but I love it.  Just because stuff is out there doesn't mean you have to buy it.  It doesn't hurt to think "Christmas" early.  It's the season of giving.  That's what Christmas is about, isn't it?

Speaking of craft shows, Nina and Jamie came up today and Nina showed us her tutus and hair bands.  We got Madison to pose for us.

Madison stayed here for a while last night.  She and Grandpa had quite a conversation.

I need to get on the stick and start checking our fall primitive inventory.  I think we are pretty well set for CP soap, except for the peppermint.  That soap sweats something fierce in hot humid weather.  Now that it's cooling off, I need to get some made.

After much debate, we are discontinuing our Maple Cream and Maple Walnut fudge.  It never quite sets up completely and it's a total pain to put out to sample.  We are adding Chocolate Walnut.  I have to make a batch of plain chocolate yet and then we will have enough for our first 2 craft shows.  I finally have the whole process down to a science.

Word of the day:
Saturday of the Twenty-second week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Rosalia, Virgin († 1160)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:1-5.

While he was going through a field of grain on a sabbath, his disciples were picking the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating them. Some Pharisees said, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?" Jesus said to them in reply, "Have you not read what David did when he and those (who were) with him were hungry? (How) he went into the house of God, took the bread of offering, which only the priests could lawfully eat, ate of it, and shared it with his companions." Then he said to them, "The Son of Man is lord of the sabbath."
