Yesterday I had a visitor to my blog who calls himself the Crap Blog Detective. Apparently, this guy has so little in his life that he feels the need to go to blogs and insult the bloggers. I won't post his link here because that's what he wants. It's the only way he can get anyone to read his pretentious drivel. I did connect with another blogger who had also been visited by this jerk. So all in all, it was a gain for me. Let us all bow our heads and say a prayer for the Crap Blogger who is so bereft of human contact that he has to seek it in the form of spreading misery.
I started the fudge this week and so far have the chocolate peanut butter and the plain peanut butter ready to go. Today I work on chocolate.
Next week is back to school week. Claire will be starting pre-school so she won't be here. I'm kind of sad about that, but her mommy said she can come any afternoon I want. So, I'm thinking that once the new baby comes, maybe I can have a helper on Tuesday afternoons.
Word of the day:
Thursday of the Twenty-second week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : Bl. Ingrid of Sweden († 1282)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 5:1-11.
While the crowd was pressing in on Jesus and listening to the word of God, he was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret. He saw two boats there alongside the lake; the fishermen had disembarked and were washing their nets. Getting into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, he asked him to put out a short distance from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. After he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch." Simon said in reply, "Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets." When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing. They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come to help them. They came and filled both boats so that they were in danger of sinking. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at the knees of Jesus and said, "Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man." For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him, and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men." When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him.
